Dumped Labour, always pro indy. Middle aged Star Trek and Star Wars geek, rather fond of new world red wine. RTs are not endorsement.

As somebody pointed out the other day on here, Glasgow has one of the oldest underground railways in the World. Not a single mile of extension since it was built. Look at all that Crossrail investment as well as HS2.

And two years after that a Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn ran a General Election campaign on a Manifesto in which they didn't undertake to reverse welfare cuts. Funny old world.

Just 19 escort ships (frigates and destroyers) left in the Royal Navy’s fleet, and only 9 of them are at sea - to cover the whole globe. Daunting.

According to reports in Spanish newspaper El Pais, the source for the claim that the Iranian oil tanker seized by the Royal navy off Gibraltar was headed for Syria was US intelligence. It's like Iraq WMD all over again.

The people who voted for Brexit should have listened to George Soros, when he said the pound would sink, instead of believing the BS from Aaron Banks, Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson. Sadly, many are still listening to those charlatans.

Pity that Gordon Brewer misrepresented my argument in article on BBC Sunday politics Scotland. Just as well was there to put him right. There are a number of schemes to stop need to get on top of the detail

Jo Swinson vehemently ruling out a coalition deal with Labour or the SNP. Presumably she wants to work with her natural allies the Tories.

Capitalist consumerism doesn't sell you the joy of owning things. It sells you the misery and fear of not owning the things that other people have.

Still, this is just about the coldest concealed slam I've ever seen about Davidson in the right-wing press.

BoJo as PM is scary but on another level, it will be interesting to watch Massie and the rest of the media having to treat a halfwitted, lying, racist clown as a statesman, a person who we should listen to and be better together with. My guess is, they will barely bat an eyelid.

Really not up to the job of interrogating the Brexit secretary in No Deal there. Very poor.

Indeed. The whole repetitive ,clumsily written thing reads like the piece of politically self serving , misleading nonsense it almost undoubtedly is. Feels like an attempt to divert attention from someone much more significant, presumably the actual leaker.

The Irish Times view on Boris: “Only a dysfunctional political culture could conclude that a showman with such limited ability, such disqualifying flaws and such a meagre track record is the man to lead its government at this dangerous moment.”
