In his column in today's edition of 'The Times', Philip Collins pinpoints the cause of current anti-Semitism scandal that is engulfing the Labour Party - the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party.
While that view is moot, his deconstruction of Ken Livingstone is devastating.
Willie Rennie does my head in. Every time he speaks all he says is "Education"
Also, I wish Ruth Davidson would stfu when others are talking. Sarah Smith should be showing her the yellow card - yet another poor referee.
Just read some comments saying BBC are editing-in applause for Dugdale. If...

Go on on Strike
As much is I despise the Tories and Jeremy *unt
I cant help but see this as a betrayal of the Hippocratic Oath.
Right, I'm sick of talking about Hibs.
How's this one going to go? Looks like an SNP landslide all the way but I wonder if it'll pan out like that as May approaches. The Tories and Scottish Labour have been chipping away on taxes from either side of the argument for a while now. Is it having...
Making an erse out of our Police force and now the NHS?
The Torys fault once again or just bad scottish government?
This article appeared in the Scotsman the other day, when I read it, I was surprised to read that the Union had given away their right to strike for wonga.
Then I read this. Don't...
From BBC website - "Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik ..... upon his return to court to accuse the government of violating his human rights by holding him in isolation".
FFS, I'm not a violent man but someone should have popped this guy at the get-go. If there wasn't such a tragic...
I can't grasp why the media think Boris will persuade people to vote out. What a self serving twat he is.
The biggest risk is people ( and espcially the young who are more keen on staying in) not turning out.
Remember the Michael Stewart adverts from last year ?
I signed up and it has been a good deal.
However I have now asked First Utility what happens after 30/06/2016 and have had no response apart from revert to our standard deal
Has anyone who signed up tried to find out I there is a second...
Seems like Abdeslam has been grabbed.
May his testicles be hit by hammers and his finger nails be pulled out slowly - Accidentally, of course.
Has won his appeal but faces a new trial. Not exactly sure how that works given (IIRC) he had served his time for the original conviction: -
I was too young to vote to join the Common Market, but I'll be voting to remain in the EU. Hereís why:
"What did the EU ever do for us?Ē
Not much, apart from: providing 57% of our trade;
structural funding to areas hit by industrial decline;
clean beaches and rivers;
Died today aged 57
Just as well we're part of a much larger economy.
GERS 2014-15 report
Now that the powers that be have rejected the landslide winning name for the new research vessel, can I suggest we name the ship "Democracy" as it's the only way we'll ever get to see it these days.
(I'm referring to the name not the boat, BTW).
Further issues uncovered at Oxgangs today, so all PPI schools closed Monday (and indefinitely), and parents are being advised to make childcare arrangements for the coming week:
Just announced that he died today, aged 57!
Can't see it posted elsewhere: died of cancer today. Sad news; I've always thought she was talented and seemed a good person. I think she satirised the British class system well, due to her superb observational abilities.
It seems like an awful lot of celebrities have died in 2016.
How are these companies allowed to continue to operate?
Sites like Seatwave, Viagogo, Getmein etc are providing an official avenue for ticket touts to utterly screw fans out of stupid amounts of money.
Whilst they themselves act as a 'marketplace' for exchanges between people, they are...
Looks like this will be a huge story. 11.5m confidential documents alleging tax dodging on a global scale, by leaders and captains of industry from across the planet.
At the moment, a lot of coverage in the UK press focussing on Putin and Iceland, but very little about the apparent 9000...
This has made me chuckle
In no way shape or form is this a racist image, and the image of an older GAP ad near the bottom proves it. Yet its still bein pulled :confused:
Farewell Mr Nice RIP
Up to one thousand men, of Arabic and North African appearance, made what appeared to be organised attacks on many people at New Year in Cologne.
They arrived in large groups by train at the main train station. Many young women on the trains had been robbed and/or sexually asualted by these...
Nice to see a country celebrate their Independence.
I went to Kilmainham Gaol a few years back, and was taken aback with the treatment of the people there. I went round with friends from Ireland, and nobody can fail to see the atrocity that the British state perpetrated on the inmates.
might have been a jambo(allegedly) but still a funny guy and was superb with ronnie barker...RIP wee man:agree: 85 years old
In our local elections the candidate for the party I would probably vote for is, in my view, a total wingnut.
It would gall me to give this person my endorsement.
Has anybody faced this dilemma before? What action did you take?
a) abstained b) voted for the party nevertheless c) voted...
Looking forward to this tonight. Russell Brand will hopefully be on top form after the slating he has had lately and who better to have in his sights than Nigel "the pricks prick" Farage..... Should be interesting.
Is this the beginning of the end for the SNP?
FFS, isn't medical science amazing.
IDS has just had a conscience transplant.
Thoughts on the finale?
What are people's thoughts on this fella?
I see he is polling well ahead of competition, mental I know.
This is what the BBC said, surmised:
He's insulted Mexicans and Latinos.
He's insulted Muslims.
While we all acknowledge the deaths of entertainers I would like to add the name of one of our most innovative Architects to the all too long list of stars to pass away this year.

Scottish Labour has today tabled an amendment to the SNP budget which would increase income tax for everyone earning over £20k per year, those earning less would get a £100 rebate. This proposal would raise £480m and would be spent on protecting Scotland's public services mainly Education. The...
First one I noticed this morning.
I can't find it online but BBC Breakfast were taken in by a story about Aston Villa charging fans £5 if they left early.
Saw the footage of the Brexit launch on the news last night and couldn't help feeling that they were hardly the most edifying bunch contrary to how they see themselves - then George Galloway took the stage.......:dunno::taxi
7000 junior doctors demo outside Westmonster 16th March. Apparently not reported in press.
Yesterday hundreds at pro indy march in Glasgow again not reported in press (to the best of my knowledge).
WTF? You have to wonder, what else are we not being told.
At the risk of starting another political thread in which the same 10 or so people rehearse the same variants on entrenched positions, here is my question.
We've had the 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2011 Scottish Parliaments. Which one was the best so far for Scotland and why? What policy(ies) made the...
Why has it suddenly all gone quiet?
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...
