Nicola Sturgeon and whispering

In my previous post I asked, “Incidentally, how come Nicola Sturgeon always seems to be at the centre of these internet rumours come election time?” A couple of days later someone submitted a comment (on a post that is over three and a half years old!) that contains the most outlandish rumour I have heard […]

Blogospheric battles and political punch-ups

My oh my, it’s certainly been getting heated in the Scottish political blogosphere of late. The Glasgow East by-election has captivated us all — and it’s captivated some people a bit too much. Councillor Andrew Burns can’t remember it being like this during the Dunfermline West by-election. If I was in a cheeky mood I […]

David Davis: mad but right

It’s probably fair to say that David Davis’s announcement was the most surprising story of the day. I think his speech is bang on the money. I had never thought of David Davis as the sort of person I would agree with. But he is absolutely right. This government is funnelling our civil liberties one-by-one […]

Aww wibble

Aww wibble. Labour lost an election so they’re off on the huff. I wonder why people don’t vote for them…

BLOODY HELL

THE LIB DEMS WON. What was a “safe” Labour seat has been turned into a three-way marginal. How did that happen? Gordon Brown’s meddling perhaps. That’ll teach him to stand in Rosyth talking about job security. I hope Labour take this as the big “fuck you” that it clearly is. And this is also a […]

Straight thinking

Straight thinking from Nick Assinder. I don’t think he gets it. Surely this just proves the point that the term “a straight choice” isn’t a reference to anybody’s sexual preferences?

Everybody wins!

You know, I really hate by-elections. Because everybody always seems to win. I mean, everybody. Labour won. Hang on, the SNP did. Oh no, it was a disaster for the nationalists. Good for the Lib Dems though. But the Conservatives are making progress. The Greens beat the Socialists! And the SSP… well… uh… I guess […]
