So Covid, Brexit and other stories. I don’t even know what to say this morning. This last few days have been like we are living in a crazy film. It really has. Yesterday, In London there was an anti-vaccine, anti-lockdown demonstration. Fair enough, live and let live and all that. In amongst the 5G is […]
So, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. A famous quote indeed but in 1697 (when it was written) they hadn’t come across Dominic Cummings. Dominic Cummings is currently sharing all the secrets from his time in Downing Street. I say secrets, pretty much most of us watching the utter fiasco that WM has […]
So…. Football…. There’s such a load of shit being talked about football just now. Most of it by people that self confess they have never watched or supported Football. Much of it by people that complain that Scotland fans are not cheering England on and that by mocking up Mancini as a Gibsonesque Braveheart saving […]
(Update – Written before he resigned but every word stands) So…. Matt Hancock… Do I care that Matt Hancock may be having an affair. No I don’t. He joins a long list of powerful men who unzip their pants and let their brains fall out. Matt Hancock hasn’t hurt me personally with his sleezy adulterous […]
So… Manchester. Apparently the Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, is hopping mad that the Scottish Government have banned all but essential travel to and from Manchester and his main complaint is that Nicola Sturgeon did not let him know that she was going to impose these restrictions. Nicola Sturgeon is clear that she phoned and […]
So…. Sausages…. There’s a bit of a hoo haa about sausages going on at the minute. The UK Government – specifically George Eustace, has said that the EU are banning British Sausages and that it is bonkers. Well, they are right in a way – it IS bonkers – and by that, I mean the […]
So… Its been an extraordinary week. This week has underlined that the people of Scotland do not want what the Tory government are offering at all. This culminated in the extraordinary and moving scenes we saw in Kenmure Street in Pollokshields yesterday. And oh goodness – it did my heart good to see it. For […]
So… less than a week to go to the Scottish Elections and where are we? Well, it appears no one knows, we have opinion polls which show the SNP getting more seats, and the SNP getting less seats. Opinion polls that show the Tories in second place and Labour in second place, that show Alba […]
So… Scottish politics I started to write about the Alba Party this morning but you know, enough people are doing that. For me, if Alba provides a home for those people who think “woke” is an insult, who think trans women are a threat to women , for those who think an acquittal in court […]
So…. devolution. It’s been said many times that power devolved is power retained but what does that actually mean. We have a Scottish Parliament which those who support the Union are fond of telling us is “the most powerful devolved Parliament in the world”. That may or may not be true – the sticking point […]
So …. last night’s Met Police Action on Clapham Common was startling in so many ways. To be clear, I wouldn’t have gone to a vigil at the moment. I’m struggling to even go to the Co Op. The idea that I’ll ever be comfortable standing around with a huge group of people seems a […]
So…. following on from the other day and again…. this post discusses sexual harassment. The #NotAllMen is still rumbling around social media. I saw a tweet yesterday that said “WTF is happening – one rogue copper and all of us are responsible”. First of all, it’s not “one rogue copper”. Today, it’s one rogue copper, […]
Please note this post talks about violence against women. I’ve been following the story in the news of Sarah Everard and it breaks my heart to see that it appears that she has been murdered. There’s been a lot of noise on social media. Some of that noise has been around “she shouldn’t have been […]
