      But, but my mother is a Baroness..

      ‘For life’- was also reported.

      The ‘baroness’ (no capitals) is also reported to have said to the effect that – you useless MPs will be out next election – despite doing sterling work for the Scottish people (my words).

      Ah, it’s moning’s mini.

    6. Fillofficer says:

      Absolute shameless bimbos
      Totally talentless
      Totally fake
      Totally illegal money grabbers
      Lock em up

    7. One_Scot says:

      Lol, I can actually hear his voice.

    8. Morgatron says:

      Just love it Chris. The Baroness of Bridgeton. Just reminds me of the wee ditty (no spelling mistake) “Hairy Mary From the Gallowgate” and we know what she did for 1 & 8/ sometimes a cryptocoin sometime a bob , aw depends on the size o yer k???.

    9. Dr Jim says:

      This is Harrids no Harrods

    10. jimnarlene says:

      That’s a bra-mmer. 😉

    11. galamcennalath says:

      Aye, it’s not the Tory Party where they appear to take any currency from any source and not ask too many questions.

    12. Kevin says:

      Davidson not far behind with her Dark chocolate money

    13. Bob Mack says:


      You took me back decades with “Hairy Mary”, who was a regular on the Gascube Rd where I grew up. She was actually very nice.

      She was indeed a Glasgow legend, but a real one, who along with the back yard “singers”, contributed to an incredible experience for a young Glaswegian.

      Miss Mone could never have coped with what Hairy Mary and her fur coat endured on a daily basis.

      I still remember Hamish Imlach immortalising her in “The cod liver oil and the Orange juice”

    14. Robert Peffers says:

      Great stuff, Chris. So much truth in one picture.

    15. Morgatron says:

      Shes obviously asking Naveed whats on the penny tray and explaining to him thats no way to refer to her mum as a lucky bag .

    16. Macart says:

      Oh, that’s good. 🙂

    17. Morgatron says:

      Bob Mack, typing it , brought back so many memories too – or in her case mammarys! Sorry , coat and leaving.

    18. defo says:

      Hag’s, Rag’s, n gag’s.

      Strength to strength CC. Fab work.

    19. Tackety Beets says:

      The best shop in Scotland ……Harrids
      Don’t push yer luck or Meena will have words with you.

    20. Irma says:


      Don’t want to lack a sense of humour, but talking about her ‘mammaries’ is sad, pathetic, sexist and antiquated! Try harder!

    21. Capella says:

      I blame the parents.

    22. Famous15 says:

      It is human nature to make fun of a fool but this fool and her ilk are blocking the way to the most obviously sane future for Scotland.

      Why are they like that is because they are shallow,self centred buffoons.

      How do you change their minds can only be by taking them to the abyss and looking down.Many of them would deny even that reality.

      Lisrening on the bus and in the pub makes me realise that many have now looked over the edge and the dream is nearing reality.I just love innocently starting that conversation and letting them come to their own dawning awareness.

    23. Ken500 says:

      Imagine saying bringing up a child is the same as having a dog.Bringing up a child is much more expensive. Reported £250,000+ A dog doesn’t need more clothes every year. An education etc. What an idiot.

      The tests at 5 years old were brougt in because of the demands by unionists for more testing. The unionists councils are using the statutory limit (30) to keep class sizes high. Then try and cut allocated funding from education. Cut additional needs provision. They are spending public money building shops, offices and hotels. There are shops and offices sitting empty and under occupied hotels. They should be building schools and houses. The Scottish Gov should reduce the statutory education limit.

    24. Wullie B says:

      Not so much as monopoly money, more like moneploy money, great picture Chris

    25. jfngw says:

      Cryptocurrency, looks like the crypt part is the only factuality about this one.

      It is interesting how Rep Scot have given the baby boxes continually bad press but seem to think the free sanitary products is the best idea ever. They even managed a Monica Lennon interview. I wonder why they would take such polar opposite views on specific subjects, anybody any idea?

    26. Dan Huil says:

      Navid has a Hamish-the-lion look about him. All the more powerful for it!

    27. jfngw says:


      You are going to hate the titcoin jokes then!

      Although we did have an Aunt Irma that came to visit my sisters regularly, we nickname her Monica now.

    28. Hamish100 says:

      …… Mone and the programme makers are using the daughter to self promote. The legacy of Thatcher continues based on me, me, me and to look down on us, us , us.

      Great social comment- what is the Herald?

    29. Robert Peffers says:

      @Famous15 says: 18 August, 2018 at 9:53 am:

      ” … I just love innocently starting that conversation and letting them come to their own dawning awareness.”

      And that, Famous15, is absolutely the most efficient method I know, from a lifetime of political campaigning for independence, of changing perspectives.

      If you downright oppose a unionists concepts they will dig-in and do their damnedest to prove their long help beliefs are right and yours are wrong.

      If, however, you, “innocently”, plant a wee seed of doubt, that carries with it a grain of truth, the wee seed of doubt will grow and they will mentally begin to question their former belief.

      The thing is they wont even realise that you had anything to do with their change of belief imagining themselves to have cleverly, “thought things through”, by themselves.

      It is, after all human nature to defend your beliefs against your perceived foe and in doing so the subliminal, “Oh! Look – A Squirrel”, mental process distracts them from accepting the truth.

    30. Artyhetty says:

      Great image Chris. There is something quite disturbing about those who flaunt their awarded Britnat state, status. It seems quite crass.

      The whole thing of ‘Poverty Safari’ must be the most disgusting idea for a tv programme ever. There’s a place in hell for those who made it, for entertainment. It’s like the 19thC all over again, only with tv to boot. Sickening.

    31. Artyhetty says:


      ‘Scotgov sgould reduce the statutory education limit’. What are you talking about here?

    32. Foonurt says:

      Irma – urr ye fuckin serious.

      Yoan’s thurr rid-enn, tae blawin-up Buddhas.

    33. Robert Peffers says:

      @Artyhetty says: 18 August, 2018 at 12:00 pm:

      ” … re;ken500@10.01am
      ‘Scotgov sgould reduce the statutory education limit’. What are you talking about here?”

      I’m sure Ken500 can answer for himself, Artyhetty, but I took him to mean the recommended class sizes. I’m not sure but I believe it is ab SG set target and not statutory thng.

    34. Brian Powell says:

      On Twitter a hilarious conversation between Paul Mason and Kenny (once might have been somebody) Farq.

      Basically we should vote for Labour so we can then ask permission from Labour to do things we can do for ourselves, now, and fully as an Independent country. His plan doesn’t mention the Tories, who run the UK most of the time or Labour who wouldn’t agree to giving anything, because they had the chance and refused it.

    35. Nana says:

      That’s a really excellent cartoon and very funny.

      Links on previous thread for anyone interested and here’s the livestream link for today’s march.

    36. jfngw says:

      When the Labour party talk of federalism it is not to enhance the powers Scotland has. It is to remove the idea of Scotland as a nation and try and embed the idea of it just being another region of the UK. Wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to remove Scottish sovereignty as part of any federalising legislation.

      Never trust Labour, it’s all about the ermine for many of them.

      Apart from that it is never going to happen, not in any meaningful way anyway. Westminster would never give up controlling the real powers of the UK.

    37. Jack Murphy says:

      NOW. All Under One Banner [AUOB] March and Rally. Dundee.

      Here with three cameras. 🙂

    38. Dr Jim says:

      Poverty safari, apart from the premise of the programme itself it’s the word *Safari* that bothers me and what kind of person or people thought that filming folk in poverty is somehow similar to venturing into a jungle or the bush full of strange things and beings nobody has ever seen before like something out of David Livingstone and that’s when people should perk their ears up and realise it’s not about the poor or the disadvantaged it’s a reality show for the wealthy presenter to Ooh and Ahh and make sympathetic noises at the camera whilst barely disguising their smirking sarcasm at poor folk not going out and *damn well working* like the viewer at home who’s paying for their benefits because the government is soft on shirkers

      These type of programmes only exist because of the Zoo like behaviour of the viewer to stare through the bars of other folks cages and allow themselves to be drawn in to the producers snare of the workshy innuendo but always beginning the show with the *Oh dear how sad* moving to the *government should do more* then on to the usual full blown *bloody fag smoking drinking probably drug taking wasters living off the state and there are squillions of them*

      There are many unpleasant ways to make a living and making programmes like this is most definitely one of them

    39. Ian McCubbin says:

      Still Game guys would have her in seconds lols

    40. Gary45% says:

      Chris, Classic “Toon” as always.

    41. Orri says:

      The cynic in me thinks that a rightwing mindset would eventually lead to a more “practical” way of addressing “period poverty” by preventing periods either by pills, coils or implants.

      Also one of the reasons for baby boxes is to reduce infant mortality mainly in the poorest quarters. They undermine limits on child support.

    42. robertknight says:

      Just curious, but what’s the term for a female Spiv?

      noun BRITISH informal

      a man, typically a flashy dresser, who makes a living by disreputable dealings.

    43. gus1940 says:


      Has anybody had the same experience as myself re comments on The Herald?

      On several occasions I have posted deliberately provocative comments frequently demolishing the article content and expecting reactions and follow up comments.

      However, what has happened frequently when I have done that is that no further comments on that item appear presumably because my provocative comment doesn’t suit The Herald’s political agenda.

      It has happened again today. Early this morning I posted a provocative comment on the British Transport Police story.

      Immediately after I posted the comment there was a total of 11 comments on the story.It is now 13.25 and the comments still sit at 11 with 0 replies to my original comment.

      I may be wrong but it would appear that the buggers are blocking further input to this item without their usual ‘comments on this are suspended’ message.

    44. gus1940 says:


      Latest loony Russia Scare lie in yesterdays Daily Heil:-

      Russia is about to introduce their latest Mach 5 4000mph long range bomber.

      I suppose some people are daft enough to believe that.

    45. Dorothy Devine says:

      Jack murphy , whit a bonny sight!

    46. Richard Hunter says:

      I’m looking forward to a future episode of ‘Born Famous’ when Baroness Razzle’s daughter visits her in prison.

      Comedy the art of truth , brilliant Chris

    49. heraldnomore says:

      LUnchtime news on Radio Jockland, Dolinda doing her best to win back trust – to the effect of being careful in Dundee as there’s a ‘Protest’ March on…WTAF

    50. Chick McGregor says:

      Social voyeurism for the twisted privileged.

      Having more isn’t enough for them, they want to see the poor have less, see them suffer have their entitlement delusions somehow ratified by the misery of others.

      And in so doing, they have unwittingly relinquished the chance of reaching their own human potential. Lose, lose.
