Blog break

I’m going to take a week off the blog. Holyrood and Westminster have both gone into summer recess so there should not be a huge amount of political news to report on for a while. I am still very fatigued from attending the SNP Convention in Dundee, it’s taking me longer to recover than I had hoped. I intend to spend the next week relaxing, recuperating, and avoiding politics. In the meantime you are all more than capable of chatting amongst yourselves.

I will be back, refreshed, renewed, and as snarky as ever in a week’s time.


I am currently running the blog’s annual fund raiser and would appreciate your support.  This blog has a regular readership in the tens of thousands and has 8500 email subscribers. If all those people donated just £1 per month I would not need to run an annual crowd funder, but of course that’s not how things work. I am committed to keeping this blog advert free and free to read for all. I am hoping to raise £5000 which together with the money I receive from writing for the National will pay me enough to live on and pay my bills. It’s considerably less than the living wage, but enough to keep me going. Many thanks for your support.
