Seeing one of my all time favourite bands Camera Obscura tonight… away to get Heartbroken again.
A chance to become more like Norway or become like the Euro-sceptic UKIP-loving south-east of the UK? Don’t let fear of the future hold you back from voting yes in September!
It’s good to see that Glasgow’s standard of drunks is still high; I was just in a 24-hour shop with a man wearing a plastic orange hat and ranting...
