  1. Michelle Thompson

    Very powerful speech today by Michelle Thompson on sexual violence. She said she was raped at the age of 14. The few MPs in the commons were very moved by her speech. It takes a lot of courage to speak out like that. Well done Ms Thompson

  2. RBS to shut more branches

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-38170966 Anybody else think that RBS are using the online banking as a convenient excuse? They closed a branch near me saying that walk-in customers were down 11%. What about the rest? Did someone at a management meeting ask, "How can...

  3. Edinburgh curry

    Several times a season my brother comes up to Easter Road with me, we generally stay over if he does and like a few pints and then a curry. Any recommendations for a decent curry house?

  4. SNP Transport minister charged for driving without insurance(!)

    You really could not make this up. So that's both his professional and personal judgement that are now in question. That'll be him a stick-on as a future Scottish FM then.

  5. Bring back hanging

    I've decided that I'm going to stand for political office. Bring back hanging will be my flagship policy. That should be enough do it in these populist days.

  10. Why is popular support for Scottish independence in decline?

    Given that we have a Tory government in power, an ineffective opposition and Brexit, why is it that popular support is falling away? What will it it take for it to recover any time soon? Will Sturgeon pay any heed and park any notion of a second referendum in the near-term?

    Is it just me or is this really a front for retailers dumping sale stock at the end of November instead of at the end of the Christmas period. There's a few good general discounts of 10-20% but nothing extra-ordinary on thing you would really pay full price on.
