Littlest and I are having a wee explore in the northwest of the city, checking out Garscube Playrooms. Amazing community-run facility for under-5s, no idea why we haven’t been here before.

So impressed with the energy of the commissioners. Now generating ideas for ways to tackle the issues they’ve developed. It’s been a full-on weekend but they are not flagging at all

Up early and on a train full of Santas off to do the Santa dash! My day is equally exciting, I’m on my way to the Youth Commission residential, where the commissioners are on day 2 of sorting through their research and prioritising actions.

There is also not a shred of evidence that sanctions achieve anything, other than forcing already poor people into desperation.

No criticism of this, but I’d like to give a different perspective on . When I first became a mum, & was regularly in tears because I found breastfeeding so difficult & sore, the ladies of Mumsnet were there for me day & night. Mums helping mums is important.

I don’t think it should be banned. But I do think it’s quite creepy.

For the first time in years, I have just attended a Scottish Government meeting where there was not only tea, but also biscuits. I have taken this as confirmation that austerity is definitely over and the long-awaited sunny uplands are just around the corner.

I don’t think Nicola Sturgeon was wrong in that instance, but neither would she have been wrong to have gone there, tackled and hopefully shredded his arguments. Sometimes you do have to take people on, I think.

I agree with this. I’m not a big fan of no-platforming and don’t on principle object to ’s decision to interview Steve Bannon, but I’d hoped to see a lot more rigorous challenge to his views. A missed opportunity I think.
