  1. Brexit - this made a nice start to the day

    https://www.theguardian.com/global/2017/aug/26/labour-calls-for-lengthy-transitional-period-post-brexit?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard I'll wait till the dust settles on this in case it's a false dawn, but I'm very encouraged. The prospect of rejoining the Party actually entered my...

  3. Neil Findlay Msp

    It seems Neil, the tribune of the left(Jimmy Johnstone was more left wing than him), has been trumpeting the Daily express again. Labour spin and lies found out again. https://t.co/iX3igf3Kn5

  4. The future of the Labour Party

    I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin. So what does the future hold for Labour? What with the exposure of Momentum promised by Channel 4 Dispatches already to be viewed tomorrow night, Panorama will...

  6. Scotch Malt Whisky Society

    Anyone a member? Is it worth the money. I'm in London but in Edinburgh quite a bit on business these days. So I'd use the venues down south much more but not exclusively. Interesting selection of single cask on their shop but doesn't say which distilleries.

  15. Reward the Young chievers or not?

    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?
