Latest Blog Posts for Malc in the Burgh

  • A New Beginning
    on Sep 2, 2010 in The Start The End Blogging
    This post is serving two functions.  Firstly, it is a thank you to everyone who has read my ramblings over the past three years and voted for me in the Total Politics awards.  I'm not folding MitB entirely, but I am recognising that the rat...
  • Retiring MSPs (Updated)
    on Aug 19, 2010 in MSPs 2011 election
    I wrote a post in June listing the MSPs who had announced they would stand down in May's Scottish Parliament election, along with a list of those who may be considering it.  The list of those who had announced their retirement by that point was:...
  • 100 Days... and counting?In the immediate aftermath of the coalition agreement, I wrote that I thought the Tory-Lib Dem partnership was liable to continue for some time - a period of years, not weeks or months.  I based that partly on the things that the Lib Dems had go...
  • Total Politics Blog Poll 2010
    on Aug 2, 2010 in Blogging

    on Jul 28, 2010 in Nick Clegg AV Referendum
    Nick Clegg thinks its "disrespectful" of 44 Tory MPs to think that voters in Scotland and Wales cannot vote on 2 issues on the same day - he said so yesterday at Deputy PMQs.  He should probably tell that to Ron Gould and the 140,000 voters in S...
  • A wolf in sheep's clothing
    on Jul 27, 2010 in Tories Devolution Labour Wales
    With apologies to the predominantly Scottish readership but there's some more news from Wales which I've found interesting (and, which has potential relevance to Scotland as well).  And it's this:  How much are the Tories about to royally s...
  • Baker's Dozin'The whole furore over the al-Megrahi release which has been opened up by David Cameron's visit to the States and the US Senate's desire to have Scottish ministers give evidence to their committee is a sad state of affairs.  Plenty has already be...
  • Big Society, Little BritainDavid Cameron got some points from me for his idea of a "Big Society".  His idea is very much in keeping with my view of what I guess is often described as "civic nationalism".  Leaving aside that the "nation" it encompasses is larger than...
  • Florence and PreciousI think I've missed the boat with the timing of this post - but the sentiment is there, so let's ignore the fact I've showed up late and embrace the fact I'm here.Last night's vigil and blog-in supporting Florence and Precious Mhango got plenty suppo...
