Post-Split Wight Planned Fight Club Musical. 

Þe borȝ brittened and brent to brondeȝ and askez..

..the burg broken and burnt to brands and ashes..

After Newshound Howie revealed the split in Socialist Unity noted Pugilist John Wight was said to be distraught.

Word reached us that he had been seen sleeping in a kailyard under a pile of old Soviet Weeklies.

Others claimed to have noticed him in ancient shuin accosting passers-by in Dundee with tales of how he “used to be John Wight’.

Taking inspiration from Oor Wullie and George Galloway’s project to make a Dusty Springfield musical  he was said to be planning a “comeback” with a scheme to turn Fight Club into song and bring it to the West End.

Now we know that his future is not so bleak.

Last night on RT Wight made an impassioned speech, defending the broadcaster against the Henry Jackson’s report, Putin’s Useful Idiots: Britain’s Left, Right and Russia.

Challenging the claim that, RT uses ““those on the left who can be relied upon to stand up for the West’s enemies whoever and wherever they may be, and those on the right who see Moscow as a defender of conservative values.” Wight declared that the channel is “winning” the argument.


Wight’s latest writing shows how:

Putin’s 2015 UN speech on ‘multipolar world’ coming to fruition John Wight Russia Today 20th of November.

Just over a year on from Putin’s address to the UN and ISIS is on the way to being defeated, Syria’s survival as a non-sectarian secular state is assured, and a new US president, pledging to reset relations with Moscow, has just been elected.

How the world has changed.

  1. The comments on the RT article start with “Looks like “The New World Order” with Jerusalem at its center and power structure is coming to an end. ” and seem to go down hill from there – with comparisons between the current UK gov and the Third Reich. Don’t see why any democratic leftie would touch RT with a barge-pole.

  2. RT also really got on my tits last night.

    After Wight they had a ‘report’ on France and Marine Le Pen, which ‘found’ loads and loads of people who liked her and others who – without uttering a word of criticism of the FN – thought she might be on the verge of a breakthrough.

    It was not a ‘report’ but close to a Party Political Broadcast for the Front National.

    Have you read the Henry Jackson report Alex?

    Now apart from political hostility it is a group I have personal reasons to loathe, but it is not at all as ridiculous at RT and its apologists make it out to be.

    Some serious charges.

  4. I wanna wanna be a male model Your View, October 18th 2009, 7:59 pm

    This is a guest post by Robert Pitt

    John Wight, the pin-up of Socialist Unity and the Scottish Palestinian Solidarity Campaign has launched a new career as a male model, signing with Edinburgh’s Stolen Agency.

    “On his web page at Stolen, lantern-jawed John shows us how the wide range of his talents will tempt the marketing departments of multi-national corporations. From a smooth, denim-clad hunk awaiting a rendezvous under a canal bridge…”

    ” through Milk-Tray-Man to the Barbour jacket and tweed cap of the landed gentry…”
