I watched a recent President Obama interview and remembered what was and then looked forward to what could be with the new presidency.
I cannot believe the arrogance of the Aberdeen Cycle Forum, Grampian Cycle Partnership and Scottish Cycling North East Grampian, who are calling for the return of the cycle lane at the beach.
Two EE stories this week had my life flashing before my teary eyes.
It has been a near-catastrophic last few days in my house, what with the threat of the TV being removed after I dared to smile when Scotland beat Serbia to qualify for the European football championship next year.
To say that I am very angry at what went on at Draft Project by Soul Bar by people watching Serbia versus Scotland football on Thursday is an understatement.
I heard our first minister defending the Scottish Test & Trace system yesterday. She seemed to compare our system with the English counterpart which, like ours, is not working to expectations.
ANd with that, the clouds parted, a shaft of sunlight descended and a heavenly choir burst into an angelic chorus of “hallelujah”.
I heartily concur with EFM (EE, November 11) that Glasgow and Lanarkshire should be in Tier 4. The only reason Nicola Sturgeon didn’t lock down the Central Belt is that she has her eyes on next year’s election.
Scotland's target must be to follow up the high of Euro 2020 qualifying by reaching the World Cup.
Those who want to be free of the union always use such derogative language which I’m sure we’ve all got used to hearing from the SNP over past several years.
The performance in Belgrade to secure Euro 2020 qualification was as good as I have seen by a Scotland team for many years.
Hurrah, Hurrah, the wicked witch is dead... or is she? Yes, it appears we have a viable Covid vaccine, but after we’ve stopped cheering, and jumping up and down, let’s look at some issues.
Three momentous events in one week. Nice-but-nobody-special Joe Biden scrapes through to the US presidency. A lovely couple, who sound like the legendary scientific geniuses Louie and Marie Pasteur, crack the Covid vaccine. And … Mo finally gets her flu jab. Fit next? Trumpie conceding he wisnae swicked?
The news that changes are coming to the law regarding fireworks in Scotland is most welcome.
Are we heading for a happy ending to the Covid-19 story?
I woke from a long nightmare and saw that in the light of day, democracy had conquered disorder and it was not fake news.
I have been studying the tier system that the Scottish Government came up with last week while also reading the concerns of Aberdeen City Council about the fact that Aberdeen is in tier 2.
As all the clips of people celebrating the dumping of Donald Trump popped up on my timeline, I thought “I’ve seen this before”.
I am yet again struck, but hardly surprised, by the arrogant and misguided authority with which the Secretary of State of Scotland Alister Jack parrots the UK Government line that there should not be another independence referendum in Scotland “for a generation”.
Well, well, George Scott, I’ve certainly got you all fired up about my letter on a number of students flouting their admission rules to university.
The European Championship play-off final is a great opportunity that Scotland can’t afford to miss.
I have read several articles recently regarding beach cycle lanes and am heartened to see the planning department has finally agreed to remove them.
At last, sense has prevailed. After weeks of protests from the beach-loving public, Aberdeen City councillors have U-turned.
Emeritus Professor Hugh Pennington, the country’s top microbiologist, has called for “quarantine hotels” to be set up throughout the UK for anybody who tests positive for coronavirus.
Dear Mr President, as you will now forever be known. You have played a blinder in your role as the leader of the free world, with your finger on the pulse – not to say the red button – of global affairs.
We now have a Scottish Government report about Covid-19 positive tested patients being released into care homes which finds “no statistical evidence” in hospital discharges to care homes leading to Covid outbreaks.
I write with regards to GC’s letter: Sick of students acting like brats.
In the teeth of the coronavirus storm, there is one group of people who have been cruelly neglected and whose voices need to be heard.
Hearts beating Hibs to reach the Scottish Cup final wasn’t a major shock.
