  1. Britain has very little to fear from the ECHR. So why are so many Tories so afraid of it?

  5. Your problem Prime Minister, is blowing in the wind.

  16. Today is the 716th anniversary of the Battle of Falkirk, when Edward Longshanks went all Malleus Scotorum forcing William Wallace to resign as Guardian of Scotland.
