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 […]

Indecision Time

Hi folks! We may well have been expecting a Hung Parliament for some time, and the Scottish blogosphere went through all this three years ago, but let’s face it, we were always going to go into overdrive, weren’t we? Anyway. Big Rab had a few observations on the big day, and on results night, FlyingRodent, […]

All Over Bar The Counting: The General Election Special

Hi folks! As announced last night, here’s a bonus Roundup (aren’t we good to you?) summing up the final days of campaign bloggery. There’s nothing more that can be done or said: all that’s left now are the results, and their aftermath. Starting with Labour, Tom Harris offers us his final thoughts, and also puts […]

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. It’s been a funny old week with the fallout of the Icelandic ash cloud still dominating much of the headlines when it wasn’t vying for space against […]

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 […]

The Return of Smeatomania

Hi folks! Conference season is now well and truly upon us, and it began last weekend with the arrival of the LibDems in Bournemouth. Caron had her reflections here. However, not everyone was impressed with the week – and non-LibDems found all sorts of things to look at, such as Vince Cable’s proposed ‘mansion tax’, […]

The Blogosphere BBQ

Hi folks! With politicians taking a (well-earned?) break, there’s been a veritable smorgasbord of issues discussed in the blogosphere this week, much like the Summer barbecues we would have if we could guarantee the weather – there’s a little something for everyone. Unlike barbecues, however, there’s little or no chance of food poisoning from a […]

Fighting for Fife: The Glenrothes By-Election Special

Hi folks! Hot on the heels of Tuesday’s look across the Atlantic, we now home in on a corner of the Kingdom of Fife, where polls have closed in an election which might not have been quite so successful in capturing the world’s imagination but has captured a lot of attention in the blogosphere. And […]
