Alistair McConnachie, Director of Sovereignty, an independent advocacy group, think-tank and democracy watchdog based in Glasgow, alerted us to Sovereignty’s latest web updates – five articles from the hard-copy archive. The authors do not hesitate to be controversial -

The DECLINE and FALL of PARLIAMENT

The media collude with the government to downplay the majesty of our nationhood, says John Papworth. (This article appeared in the September 2005 issue of Sovereignty.)

Sovereignty campaigns on the theme of self-determination nationally, locally, and personally, and has made a long-term effort to develop and promote worthwhile and accurate educational material on British identity and constitutional matters. It publishes a monthly 8-page hard-copy Journal available on subscription.
