Borders and Boundaries

Hi folks! This week’s Roundup is going to be a bit process-y, as you are in the tender care of an unapologetic electoral geek. This is because the Boundary Commission for Scotland has issued its long awaited draft proposals to revise the boundaries for the Scottish Parliamentary Constituencies. ASwaS takes a look at some of […]

Lack of Solidarity, and the latest converts to independence

Damn! You’ve caught me coming down your chimney to fill your stockings with bloggy goodness. You’re not supposed to look at them until the 25th, but seeing as the surprise is ruined you may as well get the good stuff now. I’ll be leaving a note though — lumps of coal for you next year. […]

Godwin’s Law applies to the offline world as well

The blogging community has been picking apart these events with its usual gusto, and I’ve done my best to […]

SBR 21: Tory infighting, Labour disarray

Hello there! Garry seems to have gone MIA. All is quiet on his own blog as well, so I guess he is busy. So I’m afraid I’m doing this week’s roundup again. Don’t worry, I’ll take a break for a few weeks after that… It seems as though there was no big overriding theme this […]
