What a Bunch of Bankers!

Hi folks! As I draft this, yet another bank is going under, but as this is becoming a regular occurrence people aren’t paying quite as much attention. However, the reason people aren’t scrutinising the demise of Bradford & Bingley (I’m worried – I have £3.16 in a savings account with them) is that all eyes […]

Eating, travelling and studies about our towns

Apologies for the late arrival of this month’s non-political round-up, but here it is, finally, in all its bloggy glory……   And we kick off with a food review by Carine Seitz which, to the shame of an editor somewhere in Edinburgh, never made it to print, but which is a must-read for food-lovers across […]

Scottish Roundup

Lloyds and HBOS to merge James of Two Doctors looks at the past of Lloyds TSB and HBOS. Lazychicken thinks there’ll be redundancies, regardless of whether the unions “accept” them.

Laws, Levies, Let-offs and Leadership

Hi folks! Remember the song, “It Might As Well Rain Until September”? Well, it has done, and if I’m ever in Carole King’s neighbourhood I’m going to put a cobra through her letterbox. Still, at least Holyrood is back to bring little rays of bitter sunshine into our lives. And what better way to get […]
