    She's lovely but don't recognise her.

    EU Withdrawal Bill

    Good plan, tam, but Wales voted Leave. Northern Irish D.U.P. have their own issues. I think the most likely outcome is a United Ireland and an Independent Scotland. The Tories are doing the work for us.
  4. This sounds brilliant http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/glasgow-goes-green/

    EU Withdrawal Bill

    The lack fluidity of the backstop and the need for no border seems to be a concept that Theresa May and the Brexiteers cannot grasp or just don't care about.
  6. Not until 30th March. Ushering in the summertime. Something to look forward to: http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/barras-food-truck-fest/

    Sad state of affairs. 700 new jobs anticipated. Big blow for North East.

    Aye Write 2019

    I haven't had a chance to peruse the programme properly yet, Mary. I asked for programme at the library but seems just to be out online at the moment. I expect Aye Write have a certain amount of money to put the festival on and have to charge to cover costs of participants. Have a look on my Books and Talks Page. There are usually a lot of reasonable and some free events on. I am going tomorrow to Tribute to Tom Leonard and it is a donation at the door. I can't make any comparison to London as no idea what goes on there. You do a great job with events you organise in your neck of the woods. http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/this-is-not-a-burns-night-govanhill-community-baths-trust/ http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/category/whatson/bookstalkspoetry/

    Burns Events 2019

    Saw the fabulous Tam O'Shanter paintings by Nichol Wheatley at OranMor. I think Burns would have approved.

    It really is sams. Or for Scotland definitely to leave them to it. Can't believe when watching Question Time the support for the Tories and Leave in so many places in England. Seems utterly senseless.

    SNP Civil War

    Anas Sarwar out the cabinet as well. I know people in Dumbarton who think highly of Jackie Baillie mainly because she has fought so hard to keep the Vale of Leven Hospital open. She and Sarwar both displaying insufficient support for Corbyn – would appear.

    The UK Government becomes more of a laughing stock as every day passes. The preparations for No Deal and freight across the channel being a prime example with the awarding of contract to Seaborne Freight. One problem being that they don't actually have any ferries, nor have they had any experience in providing such a service. https://news.sky.com/story/no-deal-brexit-ferry-contract-awarded-to-seaborne-freight-very-likely-unlawful-labour-claims-11602063 Apparently the two ports Ostend and Ramsgate wouldn't be ready in time to accommodate the non existent ferries. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/seaborne-freight-port-ramsgate_uk_5c3237a7e4b0d75a9831be6a
