09/01/20

Having wibbled on about how we ran our general election campaign it's perhaps time to talk about why the whole thing sucks and the biggest issue here is First Past The Post (FPTP).  read more ...

In my last post I talked about canvassing (and leafleting) in the run up to the recent general election. The actual day itself was interesting and occasionally amusing, so let's wibble about that for a while.  read more ...

05/01/20

I confess that I've never been a great fan of canvassing by political parties but in this last general election, being a loyal party member now, I felt honour bound to get involved and I must confess that - on the whole - I actually enjoyed it.  read more ...

In my last post I was talking about the problems that the Caledonian Sleeper service has been having with their new carriages but said that the Highlander service, which takes passengers from Fort William, Inverness, and Aberdeen to London, had remained on the old carriages for now.  read more ...

Caledonian Sleeper, who run the sleeper services from Scotland to London and back, really are in a mess.

34/365 - Lochindorb

No PoTD yesterday as I was too busy with work. Today I paid for that with a mig so in the afternoon we went for a drive over to Granton to see some friends and on the way we stopped off at Lochindorb to take some photos of the castle. I did take some closer to the castle, but I like the sky on this one with the castle in the distance in silhouette.
