  1. King Fluffy

    King Fluffy :not worth Indycab man Gordon Ross apparently hearing things about Mundell preparing for a post Brexit 'coup'. Fluff's increasing his staff by zillions and moving to a big office down Leith supposedly. Nothing in the mainstream news about it so it can't be true. Best ignore. ...

  3. Burlin' in his grave?

    https://www.scotsman.com/news/theresa-may-hosts-burns-supper-in-downing-street-1-4668945 "Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie, O, what a panic's in thy breastie!" would seem appropriate on the night. :wink: It will be followed by a screening of Braveheart, no doubt. :cool2:

  6. What is the world coming to?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40889511 I hope they throw the book at this guy. Attempted murder although probably some smart-assed lawyer will get him off with self-defence and the woman charged with obstruction. Shocking behaviour.
