After watching Marr, putting Boris in front of Neil would be akin to abuse.

Thought Marr done not to bad trying to stop him waffling on. Johnson just has stock flashcards in his head and tries to shoe them into every answer. I'm sure it will get the fact check treatment over the next couple of hours but I'll save the suspense. He's a lying bassa.

You could have replaced Boris with the Roy Hattersley puppet from Spitting Image and nobody would have noticed the difference, if he's the best we've got we're gubbed.

De pfeffelllll spins the same drawn out shit that Dirty Dingus has mentioned and that allows him to run the clock down without answering a direct question about him, his party and his policies.  It was standard, practiced rhetoric with more whataboutery than in the Fran & Anna thread on here.

We in Scotland really need to kick on and rid ourselves of this london funhouse (only that it is anything but funny) at the earliest.

Veering towards Tories?

Tactical voting? Or just want Brexit done? Or (gulp) do you like the general cut of the jib?

It's just good to know that even Tories have a line in the sand.

Johnson's schtick was utterly predictable; until 'Brexit Gets Done' everything, and he means everything, is on hold. Utter bullshit, and to compound it he takes absolutely no responsibility for the Tories record over the last ten years.

There is nothing in the remaining days which will alter his approach or litany of lies, so it will be down to the electorate to either call out or endorse him. Given the rampant idiocy in the UK it will likely be the latter.

Freeman has barely been a member of the SNP long enough to have involvement if any of the planning of building or running the hospital. Literally the only reason she should resign is because she was good enough to get the gig in the first place.

I live in an SNP/ Labour marginal. However, as much as I would like to get rid of the current SNP MP I can not bring myself to play any part in allowing Corbyn get near number 10.

I will spoil my paper now.

I think it was when she was with Woman for Indy she ripped Andrew Neil up for arse paper, the demi-god of BBC Politics handlers have probably had it in for her from then on.

What a waste.

I live in the constiiuency where , on a visit to a school, the local MP told a schoolkid... "Why don't you f**k off back to Scotland.."  ( James Heappey, Conservative ).

is that actually what you want from an MP ?

From where I'm sitting, comparing Westminster to Holyrood..., generally, parliamentary businesss in Scotland seems to be conducted by adults.

Westminster ?

If I lived in Scotland, I'd vote SNP.   If Corbyn lived in Scotland I could see him having serious , principled, political discussion.  Can you actually , remotely,

imagine the same of Johnson ?

But, just vote.

Hearthammer's "de Pfeffelllll" patter is atrocious.

I assume you know who i'm referring to ??

If you want to refer to him by his full name, then that's fine.   BAD Johnson.

Happy, mi amigo ??

Boris has more of the "man of the people" touch I suppose, but he called himself Al back in the day when it didn't really matter.

A producer on the Victoria Live programme contacted me last last week to ask if I'd like to be in the audience of today's show in North Berwick.

When I mentioned that I was once an SNP parliamentary candidate, there was a long nervous pause, a break to check with colleagues and then another phonecall to tell me the offer was now rescinded.

I was told that the show only wanted"ordinary voters" for the audience panel. I explained that is exactly what I am, but it seems that having once stood for office for the SNP I apparently can no longer make such a claim!

I was interested to see then, when the show aired earlier today, that this production rule does not seem to apply to former UKIP parliamentary candidates:

Image may contain: 2 people, beard and text
Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, people standing and suit

"Hotel Worker"

I bet if he has a supervisory role he'd be an absolute c**t to the eastern Europeans making the beds.

Random question: where do people get their online news from? I sometimes buy the i paper on a Saturday but for a quick 'what's happening in the world?' what are the alternatives to the Beeb?

The most reliable and dispassionate for me is Reuters. If I want to read the news as opposed to opinion that's where I go. Particularly if there's something burning up Twitter and I want to see if it's real, checking if Reuters is reporting it is a good idea.

As an all rounder the Financial Times is probably the best though it comes with a paywall.

You could do worse than buying the Economist for an idea of what's going on around the world. Like the FT it depends on its reputation for accuracy to inform businessmen and decision makers, outright propaganda would be useless to them. Like any single source it needs to be taken as an indication of what's going on, not fact, and it's got its own world view which colours its subjectivity. It covers a lot of areas of the world that rarely get a mention otherwise. The problem I have with the FT is it's expensive for the 2 or 3 pages I'm interested in, most of it is financial and business stuff that is either boring or I'm too thick to follow.
