UK's first mock drugs room opens in Bristol. Anyone remember when the Tories refused to allow this in Glasgow?
They tell us no, allow the fuss to die down, then pinch our idea - all the while bashing the SNP over Scotland's drug problem.

Hats off to the photographer who took this picture of Sajid Javid. He's taking the complete piss out of him channelling his inner Gollum. Straight out of the dead, dark heart of Mordor that's the Tory party. Saor Alba

A 'region'? A 'region'? Scotland is not a f**king 'region' like Yorkshire or Cornwall! Scotland is a country, a nation with its own culture and people. Gordon Brown: Give regions a 'voice' or UK may end, ex-PM warns Saor Alba! bbc.com/news/uk-politics-51178

living in Scotland these days, watchinghearing the @BBCNews or @Skynews is a surreal experience.
what fills the bulletins is all about a foreign, Tory country, Englandshire.
ScotGov's initiatives & achievements are always ignored, and instead we get Ruritanian royal nonsense.

THREAD: Over the past few days, I've spoken extensively with career U.S. government officials as they've worked around the clock to try and mitigate the damage from Trump's ineptitude on Iran. With their permission, I'm sharing a small taste from our lengthy conversations. Enjoy.

New Year wishes for 2020:

1. Scottish Independence

Did another experiment. Created an innocuous looking Twitter account ( no indication by name etc. as to and political leanings ). Followed a single account ( official 10 Downing Street). Within a day started to get recommendations for people like Darren Grimes, Britain First accounts, and other nasty accounts in the underbelly of far right English nationalism and Brexit. Seem clear that the algorithms have aligned the UK government with far right views.
