Gove-‘Go to Scotland Boris’
  • A dull FMQs with Sturgeon, Davidson, Baillie and Rennie arguing about vaccine delivery and Covid testing, suddenly came alive when Patrick Harvie asked the FM if she had regrets about transphobia in the Scottish Government…Nicola passionately defended her government in the manner of her personal video posted yesterday…
  • Changes to the wording of the Hate Crime Bill appeared to have triggered a social media attack on MP Joanna Cherry by trans-allies…
  • The timing seems to be a distraction as it coincides with the court appearance of Craig Murray and his publishing of evidence which is damaging to the First Minister…
  • PM Johnson’s Scottish visit gets supported by Keir Starmer (who knew?); ..roasted and then welcomed by the gang…
  • Jimmy’s Indy strategy suggestion of deliberately collapsing an SNP government after the May election gets analysed and expect more debate on the idea…
  • Someone suggested that a media mogul put up Michael Gove to persuade Boris Johnson to visit Scotland where he is despised…We wonder why.

 Band of Brexiteers

  • Seasons greetings and thanks to all our viewers and listeners,  wherever you are.  
  • It was the last FMQs at Holyrood before Xmas but apart from the obligatory thanks and best wishes there was little to cheer.  Covid infections are still around 1000 a day.  Care homes are still a ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ issue and Willie Rennie almost starred in a low firmament.  
  • Norrie and Stewart have another ‘debate’ about making progress towards an iScotland in the face of an anticipated refusal to negotiate from London.  
  • Fresh light on the new Covid variant comes from a New York Times article.. Who knew?

Drug Deaths Capital   

  • Drug deaths dominated FMQs. Ruth Davidson, Richard Leonard and Willie Rennie pressed FM Sturgeon about her responsibility for the scandal.  The three of us had a proper barney about it.  
  • Patrick Harvie raised the Supreme Court decision to approve a third runway at Heathrow and challenged the FM on her support for it.  We also discovered that a Climate Change Plan was published yesterday. We will have to try harder.  
  • A new Comres poll has support for independence at 58% again, meaning there’s now 17 polls in a row proving that ‘freedom’ is now the settled will of the Scottish electorate.

  • We rebut a London Times story about Scotland being too poor to be independent by David Smith (who?).  
  • Gerry Hassan gets some support and is exposed again as a chronic Labour supporter.
