  1. Presidential Debate - Trump vs Clinton

    I've stayed up to watch this (will pay for it in the morning :greengrin) Trump is horrific (he comes across as drunk and it's difficult to make out what point he's trying to make at times) and Clinton is playing it steady, but it's easy to see how he will appeal to a lowest common denominator. ...

  3. Tesco

    If ever a company set itself up to shoot itself in the foot until there was no foot left then Tesco is it. I was a Tesco shopper for years even after their bad PR over pricing. They then shut several stores that I used and also cancelled new stores planned at a few locations. Today I learn that...

    Does anyone work in a job where your pay isn't performance related where there is a pay gap between men and women? Serious question. I don't know of any.

  5. Labour Party Leadership

    Is it just me or, is the Scottish Labour Supporters stuck between a rock and a hard place if Jeremy Corbyn wins the leadership race. The reason I state this is because, if he wins then surely that would subject Scotland to guaranteed Tory Westminster Governments although on the other hand its his...

    Anyone a member? Is it worth the money. I'm in London but in Edinburgh quite a bit on business these days. So I'd use the venues down south much more but not exclusively. Interesting selection of single cask on their shop but doesn't say which distilleries.
