  1. Henry Dundas

    Someone was asking me today who the guy was on the column in St Andrews Square. I have to admit I didn't know who it was, I later googled it and found out who he was. I must say I'm quite surprised that such a controversial figure has such a prominent place in our city. After reading up on him, I...

  2. Poll Poll: Diana: In Memoriam

    20years on and the media are covering the anniversary of her death extensively. My experience of the events at the time was that the mood in the media wasn't reflected in the people. There was an interesting documentary at the time which vox popped the people turning up for the funeral who were...

  3. If you were POTUS how many people would the Secret Service protect?

    This isn't a comment on Trump's situation, just an interesting diversion as I'd never realised the extent of the Secret Service's job, although it's obvious now. Secret Service director says agency running out of money protecting Trump ...

  6. Would you/could you murder someone?

    I was reading something about Katie Hopkins and I fleetingly thought that I'd like to shoot her. Understandable, I'm sure (most of) you agree. In the early 80's, it was quite common for young dafties like me to get together in pubs and talk in sombre tones about sending someone to London to kill...

All newspapers appear to have thrown away all ethics (if some ever had any the first place) in favour of, not just sensationalism, but blatant political propaganda. While the internet can be just as bad, I think people are a...

    Read Falkirk Fc rewarded exam achievers with free entry into a match based on exam awards. Personally I was horrified as it demonstrates an elitist outlook. Surely the ones left behind should be given any freebies not the ones who will stroll through an already corrupted 'winners' society?
