    Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher??
    The only reason Tom Cruise got that gig is coz he bought the rights to the film.

    Interesting to see there is reference to him being white. With that in mind i think you make a fair point re casting both in bond and other films.

    Off the back of this i looked at the most recent census, and there are actually a lot more people of indian and pakistani descent living in Britain. Given the current climate of fear round muslim populations etc, it would possibly be more realistic to have an asian bond, as i bet we have plenty spies trying to infiltrate isis etc at the moment. If Elbas only in line because he is black, then that is actually racism too.
    You're going to have to explain that to me please.

    Well basically, if he is getting the role because he is black and for no other reason, then it is the same as a white person getting a job because they are white.

    Whilst not in the traditional sense, i see it as just as rascist to put a person in a role purely because they are the 'right' colour.


    On a slightly different issue in todays news, there is some comment on how terrible the bbc are as 88% of their highest earners are white. Is that not a pretty fair representation of the overall population of the uk? And if so, why is it deserving of comment? Should we have a disproportionate number of bme peopel being high earners?

    Is the point not that it doesnt fit with the narrative though. Not a lot of black, privately educated, scottish landowners moving in the circles of london high society and climbing rhe pole at MI6 - it doesnt ring true.

    Characters like Luther, i agree are colourless, but Bonds backstory is an important part of his character.

    That being said, i really like idris elba so not overly concerned. I just worry it is being done for all the wrong reasons (just bevause something can be done, doesnt mean it necessarily should)

    Just seen a trailer for a new drama featuring Jodie Whittaker where she is impersonating a doctor and says "I'm not a real doctor"

    That's going viral

    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.
