  1. The Budget

    Surprised not to see something about this. Will the SNP follow Westminster and abolish stamp duty for first time buyers up to value of £300,000? I am sure someone will come along and tell me the extra £2BN is a bad thing because.... I am not really sure of what the implications are of...

  2. Rodney Bewes RIP

    Loved the Likely Lads way back when. The seemed very dated when I saw a re-run recently. I've never felt the same about them since I read that Bewes and Bolam didn't like each other. "Dinny-Like-Ye Lads" would have been a better title. As an anecdote, Bewes's on screen wife (Thelma) was of...

  4. Johnson Must Go

    A charity fears a British-Iranian woman held in Iran could have her prison sentence doubled following remarks made by the foreign secretary. Boris Johnson told a Commons committee Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was "training journalists" when she was arrested at Tehran Airport in 2016. The Thomson...

  6. Edinburgh Council Tax - Payment methods

    Question for any Council employees or anyone else on the know. Before I moved to West Lothian I sometimes used to pay my Council Tax for Edinburgh by posting them a cheque. However, having moved back into the area they don't seem to still offer this facility or at least advertise it. If I...

  15. Alcohol

    Alcohol minimum price will be introduced in Scotland. Waste of time and unfair on the Scots. The goal is to cut down alcoholic illness but there’s not a hope in hell of that succeeding by bumping up the price. All we’ll end up with is poorer alcoholics.

    Iíve gone on about this before. Dropping the voting age to 16 is policy for every party but the DUP and the Tories. Now thereís a vote and the old woman who is squatting in number 10 is blocking its progress. After they screw up Brexit the Conservativeís truly are toast for a generation.
