People must be wondering just what needs to happen these days for someone to accept responsibility and resign their post.

A guest post from Walter Hamilton. PART ONE This is what Walter sent me originally. I then went back asking for more info on Walter and Part two outlines that part of his story.

JUST HOW WRONG CAN YOU GET IT? What follows is an international article setting out the absolute stupidity of SSE ENERGY SERVICES and the advice they were giving their customers on having to stay warm this winter. It suggests a company minus any concern for their customers, other than make fun of them. Unfortunately ScotlandContinue reading "JUST HOW WRONG CAN YOU GET IT?"
A post from the Yours for Scotland regular columnist Mia. ON WHAT SIDE ARE YOU? For 6.5 years, the SNP has blown hot and cold on independence supporters.  We are beyond frustrated with their excuses. We are bored with their platitudes and cries of not having sufficient powers despite holding the power to end the union....

In between campaigning we had plenty of time to discuss what the big issues were and which hadContinue reading "WE HAD BETTER LEARN FROM THIS"

ANY REASONS FOR OPTIMISM? This is the time of year when traditionally forecasts are made, people sit down and look at the year ahead and try to anticipate and forecast what events are likely to happen. Both good and bad.
