This is ridiculous.

Do we all get a chance to vet any new legislation and get it change it we don't like it.

"KING Charles has been allowed to vet and potentially lobby for changes to emergency legislation to freeze rents in Scotland because it could affect tenants on the Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire."

ALBA MP, Kenny MacAskill's expose was front page of The Herald yesterday.

“At a time when Scots are struggling to pay their energy bills, renewable energy in Scotland is being switched off. Perversely, energy suppliers are paid more for that than for producing energy. As offshore wind comes on stream, the great energy switch off will only increase. The cost to the public purse will soon...
"Branding this the “Great Energy Switch Off” Mr MacAskill is calling on the UK and Scottish Government to end the “absurdity” of tax payers paying wind farms astronomical sums to switch off energy in the midst of an energy crisis, when Scots families are struggling to pay their bills, and the “perversity” of wind farms being paid even more during the winter months."

For immediate...

This was confirmed to Mr MacAskill in an answer to a parliamentary written question by the UK Minister for Climate, Graham Stuart...
Not long to wait for ALBA East Lothian's meeting
7.30 tonight at the Fraser Centre, come along! All welcome.
Well Liz Truss said she was going to ignore Scotland when she was PM and she definitely means to.

Her first interviews after crashing the economy, almost destroying pension funds, and making the UK a laughing stock were on English local radio networks only.

Liz Truss says the government had to move quickly to reduce the tax burden and "get the economy going".
We knew Liz Truss would be a disaster as PM but to crash the UK economy in your first full week of being PM, ignoring the time for mourning, is unbelievable.

The worst budget in living memory, possibly the worst budget ever, has lead to unprecedented warnings from the IMF and the White House, a fall in the value of the pound and now the Bank of England buying Goverment Bonds to stop a full on...
