    I see the Electoral commission have finally caught up with Scotland in Union, a mostly Tory front but with some ex Labour types, regarding their expenses and active electioneering.

    Mostly landed gentry, and lots of donations from wealthy benefactors.

    The Green ink Gang will be beilin.

    This was an interesting read on Toby Young.

    I can’t copy a link to the tweet but @JMPSimor makes some good points about the personal backing for Toby Young from his self-serving Tory cabal.

    Thatís the way that I see it.
    Fair enough.

    But i dont think guys like bernie ecclestone and brian soutar count as poor, and i dont think donate (donated) for fun.

    And those union bosses certainly aint poor.

    The Tory Party exists to keep a small number of very rich people happy.
    Not their fault. The electorate voted them in. Nowt queer as folk.

    Teresa May hasnít got any better over the winter break, I see.

    Weasel words on every issue and no action on the critical issues of the day like inequality and lack of social mobility.

    This is easily the ****test Tory government I can recall.

    Canít stand her either! Entitled, patronising old biddie.

    Toby Young seems quite mild now that Esther McVey has just been made Work and Pensions secretary.

    Yes. Public pressure brings down a disgusting Tory *******.

    Theresa was backing him at the week end.

    She's not had a good start to the year.

    Minister talks of ageing population contributing to #NHS England winter crisis but this should't be a surprise! Perhaps only having 2.4 hospital beds /1000 population in England, compared with 4/1000 in Scotland, isn't such a bright idea.

    Well, who knew the NHS in Scotland was better than in England.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Glad to see the little **** go but Iím sorry that Justine Greening was given the push.

    The fact that the Old Biddie wanted to get rid of her and appoint Young tells you a lot about her attitude to state education.

    Take a trip down to your local disability centre, and mention that you're bringing Esther in for a visit.

    Boris Johnson has his say on Trump.

    ďThe US is the biggest single investor in the UK - yet Khan & Corbyn seem determined to put this crucial relationship at risk. We will not allow US-UK relations to be endangered by some puffed up pompous popinjay in City Hall.Ē

    So he can be as racist as he likes but we should be welcoming him for financial reasons. It makes me sick to think these people are running our country and even sicker that normal people vote for them.
