Homeless and rough sleepers are, apparently, being rounded up in Windsor. These people, however, seem to be grabbing their place for an event that will take place in 2 days’ time. Does that not make them rough sleepers too?
The Tories seem to think that the decision of the Scottish Parliament (although I’ve heard it described as the decision of the Scottish Government) not to approve the European Withdrawal legislation, which will see the removal of powers from Holyrood, was some sort of small-minded nationalistic protest.
But we should remember that Labour, the Greens and the Liberal Democrats voted with the government for this action. It’s not narrow nationalism. It is cross-party consensus, with the only exception being the Tories.
In comparison to people who live south of the border, we have it a bit easier. And we’d like to keep it that way.
The British government (or rather the part of it that deals with England and Wales (and now, presumably, Northern Ireland) has revealed plans to make getting permission for fracking as easy as for putting up a garden shed.
A small thing, you might think, till it affects land in your area.
In Scotland, we can produce energy using green technology and at present fracking is illegal.
We must keep the fracking ban until we know that it is safe.
Incidentally, and ironically, Mundell has said that only Tories understand the complexities of the Withdrawal Bill and MSPs didn’t understand the technicalities of it. Presumably, he imagines that he is brighter than any of the MSPs who voted against it.
So I’ll leave you to have a good old laugh about that one…
So, Boris, remind us, why did you suggest that he should get a Nobel Peace Prize?
He’s certainly a bit of a lad for international diplomacy, isn’t he?
Just saw this. It was a year ago but it’s still funny!
