Is it just me or was it a bit quiet this weekend?
We did learn that the Royal Navy Test Fired a Trident Nuclear Missile at the West Coast of Africa, however the missile headed for Florida. No a nuclear missile is no laughing matter, esp given the bloody things are stored in Scotland because they pose too big a risk to be stored in England, the country that actually wants the ability to murder millions of people, but I did wonder if the Gods were looking down on the stupid UK. I would also be a bit pissed off if I was a citizen of the African continent that the UK saw fit to test fire a nuclear missile in my direction. We also have the politicians scrambling around trying to prove that Theresa May knew about it but refuses to answer, of course she bloody knew and of course they won’t admit it as it’s a pure minter.
Keven McKenna writing in the Sunday Herald wants us all to be nice to journalists and stop calling them bad names, this would be the same journalists who made the Scottish Flag into a swastika during the referendum.
I can’t pretend to speak for anyone else who is a YES supporter but I am not planning on being nice to any lying, scaremongering, yoon journalist in the vague hope that they might actually follow the journalistic code of ethics and give both sides a fair hearing during the next campaign, they can go do one.
I learned that Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, really likes Theresa May when he said “In a really peculiar way I felt slightly proud of her when she became prime minister”, in an interview with the political betting website, who would have guessed that a Tory would be proud of a Tory.
I learned and wondered why so many British people are expressing opinions on Donald Trump. Emma Thomson thinks it’s terrifying, Stephen Hawking said ” was a demagogue who appealed to the lowest common denominator”, we have the Tories ffs. I also love the image below of oor Kezia, the curse of Democratic Presidential Elections, with a Clinton cardboard cut out.
