I've been asked to attend a counter demo (the mound at 11am) but I've not heard much else about it???
It's mind boggling how this apparent scam was allowed to continue for such a prolonged period of time before concerns were raised. I suspect that widescale collusion involving numerous "interested" parties must have been in place.
I am looking for a wee favour - my wheelchair tennis club which is based at Craiglockhart is in need of some votes to help them receive up to £6000 of funding from the RBS.

"Edinburgh City Council's transport convener has said he did not have the right skills to "properly scrutinise" the city's troubled tram project." BBC Scotland.

It raises some interesting points.

Just seeing about it on the news right now. :bitchy:
This one is about a kid called Alan who was kidnapped by men and they tried to behead him but he was found alive, and was in a coma for 1 month. Other stories about kids aged very young (6,7 etc) maybe younger or older than that being...
R.I.P. Steve, lost his battle against pancreatic cancer aged 56.
I'm going to offer the otherwise generally pretty good Gene Hackman. Two nominations:
1. Terrible, terrible Polish accent in 'A Bridge Too Far'
2. Unbelievably bad portrayal of a drunk man in 'The Pelican Brief'
Worrying that the Home Secretary can be incompetent or ill-informed regards matters relating to her job. Hardly a good basis on which to be lecturing others on immigration issues and human rights legislation.

no one drives at 70 anyway so its just common sense imo, I hope Scotland follow ....
Doesn't say yet who killed him, but he's deid :agree:.

I see the Scotsman is leading with a none too subtle attack on the SNP today on some of the detail of their budget..SCOTSMAN
While I am no fan of the SNP and in particular their cunning ability to spin anything good as down to them and anything bad as down to the Union I'm not quite getting this...
To day is Merchant Navy Day 2011. Every year we acknowledge (quite rightly) the sacrifices made by our armed forces in various conflicts. The MN is of course not an armed service and for many many years was never even considered when it came to memorials. Thankfully this is changing and this will...

That Murdo Fraser wants to reform the Scottish Tories as a distinct party. Think someone said a few years ago that the Tories were viewed as being a toxic brand.
