I see the Saxe-Coburg and Gothas have run out of phylactery counters

There are as many honest politicians as there are unicorns, and as much chance of them delivering Scottish independence as establishing a colony on the moon.

So Salmond was found innocent and the only person actually present in court to report his defence looks about to be sent to jail.

Post-ironic Salmond Love: a portrait of Alex Salmond I made 7 years ago as a joke. Not sure it's a joke anymore.

That's it. The Sun is now heading back towards Clachtoll, widely acknowledged as the Centre of the (known) Universe

The day after Black Friday is Fair Saturday, and we are having an exhibition about the Rousay Clearances.

How does an island go from having 1118 people to 200? Don't ask Neil Oliver.
