Irvine Welsh – The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins INSP 07/07/2014

“In the rich countries we now have people who are either dying through eating no food, or through eating cheap, poisonous crap. It’s beyond obscene: it’s pathological and senseless,” says Irvine Welsh. He is the author of nine novels including the best-selling and critically acclaimed Trainspotting that was turned into a hit film by director, Danny Boyle. The Scots writer speaks exclusively to Callum McSorley of INSP about his latest book, The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins, his views on political apathy and Scottish independence. Welsh has often spoken out about homelessness and has been an ambassador for INSP for several years now.

Protests and pay – we talk World Cup football to street vendors INSP 30/06/2014

On an unusually warm summer’s day in Glasgow, Scotland, INSP travelled throughout the city talking to Big Issue UK vendors about the Fifa World Cup. Stepping back from the football itself, we discussed the impact of the tournament on the global awareness of homelessness and how the extortionate wages received by the athletes affect the relationship between players and fans. The vendors also had their say on the protests surrounding the tournament regarding Brazil’s extravagant spending and forceful evictions of many homeless people. David Meiklejohn reports for INSP.

Scottish independence - the most important referendum in British history INSP 26/05/2014

On 18 September, the people of Scotland will cast their votes in the most important referendum ever to be held in Britain and answer the question: “Should Scotland be an independent country?” If Scotland votes to leave the UK it would be a truly seismic political moment, a decision that will reverberate across the world and end one of the most successful political unions in modern history. After more than 300 years of partnership with England after signing the Treaty of Union in 1707, Scotland would become the world’s newest sovereign state. INSP has two reports this week. In the first, Billy Briggs documents events at grassroots level while in the second, Callum McSorley grills Alistair Darling, Britain’s former Chancellor of the Exchequer and head of the Better Together campaign.

UK trains army accused of raping children INSP 12/05/2014

Human rights groups have condemned the British government for training a brutal army accused of raping children. A new report by Burma Campaign UK said the Burmese Army uses rape as a weapon of war against innocent civilians. Recent cases documented include a 12 year old girl raped in front of her mother and the rape of a disabled woman. The report said victims of gang rapes by Burmese soldiers have been murdered. Last year the UK government announced it would provide military training for the Burmese Army. The controversial programme began in January this year when a UK team was sent to Burma to train top ranking officers. Now, Burma Campaign UK is calling for an international investigation into allegations of war crimes.

The Slaughter INSP 17/03/2014

Mass murder is alive and well in China. That’s the stark conclusion US author Ethan Gutmann came to after an investigation into the Chinese Communist Party’s alleged secret program to exterminate political dissidents while profiting from the sale of their organs – in many cases to Western recipients. Based on interviews with top-ranking police officials and Chinese doctors who claim to have killed Falun Gong prisoners on operating tables, veteran China analyst Gutmann has written an important book due to be released shortly. INSP interviewed Gutmann during his recent visit to Scotland.
