    National News John Hume

    Sad to hear that John Hume passed today after a long illness. One of those titan politicians from another era who helped push NI towards peace at a big personal risk to himself at times. I hope he can rest easy. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-44753271

    EPL Football is back

    It's the Premier League, so not that enthused, but glad to see football be played and something different to watch on TV. We creep back to normal, slowly... Mike Dean is ref for the Merseyside derby, so we all know how much that man's ego will love all the attention, esp when there is little...

    Ex Player Where is Bobby Ford?

    For those that have listened to the official club podcast (excellent BTW), there has been a recurring theme in them other than Nigel Jemson being a less than wonderful human being as a player and team mate. What happened to the mercurial Bobby Ford, and where is he now? Because it seems that...

    National News Scottish Finance Secretary

    This story is quite a shocker: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-51397956 Just what in the hell was he thinking for starting an unsolicited conversation with a 16 year old on social media and carrying it on for over 200 messages? It's like George Osborne or Gordon Brown doing this and...

    The team are in NZ for T20s at the moment and are 1-1 - James Vince is still the cricketer that giveth and taketh away in equal measures - some spectacular drops in the last game after scoring a "pretty" 50 in the first game. Pat Brown has been struggling a bit, but all in, the team look good...

    International News Justin Trudeau

    The progressive Canadian leader has been busted for wearing "brown face" from a party in 2001. It's another scandal for Trudeau, how does he keep on doing it? But importantly, does this make him racist? Or just a misguided person who didn't think before dressing up...
