Already some high profile defections to Salmond's new party, including one sitting SNP MP.

Which vaccine did you get?

And more importantly do you get a biscuit?

I had my first shot on Tuesday. AZ since you ask.

Took the advice of the staff there and colleagues and took preventative paracetamol. Was a bit out of sorts on Wed and a slight sore arm Thursday but otherwise all good.

I had a choice of venues and decided to be sensible and go to Huddersfield Stadium rather than the more distant, though obviously more attractive, Elland Road.

Apologies HindleA please forgive....

Oh and no biscuit.

But I did get told off for taking a selfie by the pitch on the way out, which I still haven’t quite understood.

Your lack of biscuit disturbs me.

This however is better news.

I must say I was disappointed to read Blackford's sneering response to him jumping ship. Kenny MacAskill has been a stalwart of the left of the SNP for decades and his release of Megrahi on compassionate grounds when he was Justice Secretary was a brave (and in my view correct) decision. I can only assume Blackford's 'increasing embarrassment' comment related to MacAskill's alleged breaking of lockdown travel restrictions (for which he claimed to have a medical reason) or maybe he was just being an arsehole. One thing to bear in mind is Ian Blackford really does not like Alex Salmond, so maybe that helped spur his uncharitable response.

I really do get what Wren-Lewis is saying, but I do also feel there is a more principled stand Starmer (of all people) could take here that would not immediately alienate voters in “the centre”.

Yes.

If we've learnt anything from Trump/Biden after Trump/Clinton, it should be that if one party supports democracy, human rights and the rule of law and the other doesn't, at a general election you shouldn't ask for more.

Therefore, looking shaky on human rights isn't helpful.

Yes it articulates well something I have always struggled to put into words but revolves around the absolute weariness with which I used to argue with a colleague at the bookshop I worked at about putting the Koran on the top shelf. He kept moving it - "we're in Britain, not a Muslim country, we don't need to kowtow to other's religion blah, blah, blah" - and I'd keep putting it back on the top shelf, because sometimes we were asked to by Muslim customers who didn't like to see other books being placed above it. And why wouldn't I? It makes no difference to me where it goes, but it does to them, so why not?

I've never understood why not.

Sorry to hear that AK. I asked the doctor about having some wine later and she warned me she'd had a few drinks after her vaccination and had felt like crap the next day with a mix of hangover/flu like symptoms, so yeah it's pretty common. Hope you feel better soon.

Exactly. We have enough actual conflict in the world without provoking more.

Regardless of whether it should be ok to share a cartoon of the Prophet in context in class, why would you actually do that?

Negative stuff flying around about Brits having to leave Spain etc. I don't like commenting as it angers me but I just want to say, Spain have made the transition for those of us who are legally resident to be a really easy process for which we are truly grateful.

I'm sure the Spanish government will eventually realise that they need people that thick more than the thick people need them. Europeans, eh? They're renowned for being a bit slow on the uptake. I wonder if he's tried speaking to them very slowly and very loudly? That usually works, I gather.

With Scotland playing Israel in a world cup qualifier later I suspect most of the country will find themselves facing accusations of antisemitism for not wanting Israel to win.

Rather more disturbing than the lack of biscuits is the fact that I didn't feel anything at all while being injected with the vaccine and there's no sign of any redness or pain in my arm. This leads me to believe there's a vast conspiracy going on involving the Conservative government and the NHS where some of us are getting fake vaccinations to inflate the figures. I expect the needle went back up into the syringe like a stage prop knife.

Hypnotic suggestion using psychic 5G frequencies was obviously employed causing me to look away during the injection making the fraud possible, because it definitely couldn't have had anything to do with me being a massive wuss.

Something more disturbing than a lack of biscuits sounds like something very much to avoid.

The funny thing is I don't even like biscuits. I don't have a sweet tooth at all.

Even as a kid the only ones I liked were fig rolls and garibaldis. Maybe the occasional fruit club, but only at weekends.

Liverpool charity for vulnerable women left with 'catastrophic' mess in property deal

Blackburne House’s former chief executive says she ‘could have wept’ over soil pipes and uneven floor

For almost 40 years, Blackburne House has given a lifeline to thousands of Liverpool’s most vulnerable women. But its former chief executive has described how the charity fell victim to a “catastrophic” property deal that is embroiled in corruption allegations engulfing Liverpool city council.

After following your link and briefly glancing over the edge of the rancid pit of Scottish gender politics it really does beggar belief that some women seem more than happy to give their support to a self confessed sex pest who admitted to inappropriate behaviour because he claims he'll protect their rights.

He's more likely to protect their boobs...with his hands.

It's little wonder Salmond used to love Trump so much.

That really is tragic PF.

I wonder if this 'developer' had anything to do with a certain Mr Hatton. As far as I recall that was his professed line of work.

Liverpool seems to be very vulnerable to being done over by its elected leaders and their associates. Odd how (comparatively) recent history is repeating itself. I don't for one minute think that Derek Hatton was naive but was the most recent lot (in the most generous and elastic usage of the word "naive")? Not that that would make them any less culpable, just more stupid.

Ah no it was a certain Mr Lawless, another property developer whose only ties to a certain Mr Hatton were being arrested at the same time and accused of the same crimes.

For the record he claims he's innocent of the shoddy work at Blackburne House and says it was all the council's fault.

The flawless Mr Lawless. And the soon to become floorless Blackburne House.

Now that the Census-taking is over, I'll berate ONS (or whoever was in charge of their TV campaign) for not using this, the proper, version -

I really like this, it makes the reek of boiled cabbage, bad cigarettes and desperation seem sexy.



One listen to that and I'd definitely have kept bumping into my friend Ivan while out for totally innocent strolls where I kept leaving microfilm on park benches completely by mistake.
