  2. General Election on May 4 possibly

    Twitter chat is that Tory party chairman and chief whips have net and looking at May 4. Remarkably, Labour would support the move making it possible to get out of the fixed term. It also could explain why Osbourne hasn't resigned as an MP yet. It could just be a rumour, but May may say...

  3. Labour federalism

    I guess it's not especially surprising that nobody has raised Scottish Labour's "federalism" plan on here and that's probably a good indicator of the weight attached to it by the Scottish public but just to check I'm not getting this wrong, they *really* are proposing to go into a new referendum...

    Yes or no? Personally I think its an outdated nonsence that we have these unelected people that have the highest stake in society for no reason other than the fact they were lucky enough to be born into it.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-39282487 This is baffling. Rangers weren't relegated, they ceased to be did they not? Surely that was all Corals needed to say? Maybe it was a hot potato and the bad press if they did claim that would have lost them a lot of TRFC punters.
