Films, Fillies and the Yes/No People…

Hello, this week’s Roundup is edited by Alistair Braidwood who many know better as Scots Whay Hae! As the Scottish Roundup is a must read of a Sunday morning I thought I would try and balance this week’s post in classic Sunday Newspaper style, so there is a little news from home and abroad, a […]

The one with sobbing, weeping, and tears of rage and anger.

When receiving the nominations for the round up this week I was duly notified that it would be an emotional read, and I can tell you right now she wasn’t wrong. So, I imagine you are all sitting around the kitchen table eating bagels, reading the Sunday papers, and discussing last night’s reality shows with […]

What a difference a week makes…

Hello there everyone! Kirsteen here from Debate is Free; doing my first Scottish Round up, please be gentle and don’t aim for the head the bruises will show.

Avoiding the wooden spoon

Greetings one and all, and welcome to this week’s Scottish Blogging Roundup. It is, as the nurse said to the patient, “months since I’ve been in this position”, so it’s good to see you all again.

In any case, there have, as always, been lots of reasons for bloggers to take to their keyboards, not all of them poetry related. Firstly, people seemed […]

The Week of the Fascist Fonebook (Phascist Phonebook?)

Hi folks! It’s amazing what people get revved up about, isn’t it? This week, a list of contacts has set the blogosphere alight. Thing is, this is no ordinary contacts list – it’s a list of BNP members, and bloggers being excitable types, quite a few people had something to say. IndyGal weighs up the […]

A non-toff snout in the trough

Hello, and welcome to this week’s roundup! It’s been a good few weeks since I’ve edited the roundup, so I should say thanks to Will for doing such a great job holding the fort over the past couple of months, particularly amid some perplexing technical issues. Headline of the week comes from the aedjt (is […]
