Sensible Scotland

by Matthew Steeples

Scotland has taken the right decision   Yesterday the Scottish came out in force and voted ‘no’ to independence.

Boyling over

by Matthew Steeples

Frankie Boyle owes Jeremy Clarkson an apology   Frankie Boyle is a provocative yet humourless Scottish comedian who’d do well to stay north of the border.
