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 […]

This, That and the Other Thing

It’s Clair here again, it feels like being back in school with my work always having to follow Kateri’s, oh well best get on with it. As we hurtle towards the end of July and pass the half way mark of the school holidays Scottish blogging has continued apace with a wonderful range of blog posts concerning […]

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. (No, really, that is what the nurse said to the patient.) Apart from Scotland’s marvellous win at Croke Park […]

Turning Left?

Hi folks! It’s been a busy and varied week in the blogosphere, and there’s been plenty going on for you all to get your teeth into. The thing is, just as we’re supposedly heading for a rightward turn at Westminster, Holyrood appears to be facing the other way. Scottish Socialist Youth has a report from […]

Boobs, Blogs and Toblerone Shaped UFO’s!

I have generously taken time away from my busy schedule and unforgiving head cold to summarise what has been going on in our bonnie country of Scotland this week… so what follows is a hot mess of the highlights that stood out for me and my ‘deprived of oxygen at an early age’ brain cells…. […]

However, stay tuned for a special announcement some time next week! In the meantime, though, let’s get on with this week’s roundup. The year in music We are […]

Glasgow East by-election special

The polls have closed and now we just have to wait a few hours for the result. By the time you read this I will be getting on with something much more important — I’ll be down the pub. But I have spent the day diligently gathering the best online commentary about Glasgow East from […]

A few admin notes

This is just a little post about some of the plans for Scottish Roundup over the next little while. By-election special First of all we are going to have a Glasgow East by-election special to be posted when polls close on Thursday. That roundup will contain all the last-minute campaign and pre-poll thoughts and will […]

Constitutional conversations, commissions and conferences

Hello and welcome to this week’s roundup! I hope you are not too sleep deprived from this spring forward nonsense. I am writing this very late on Saturday night, and I’m worried that I won’t get to sleep until around 6am (because I am bad at sleeping in general, not just because I’m writing this)! […]

Are the Glasgow games for the common weal?

Hello! Roundup time again. It looks like the biggest story of the week was the Commonwealth Games. This sort of thing normally bores me to sleep. Mind you, this time round we have at least had the entertainment of seeing nationalist types who were strongly opposed to London 2012 but have the bunting out for […]
