Nobody said it was easy 261

We have to admit it, last night’s groundbreaking joint party election broadcast from the putative SNP/Scottish Greens coalition was pretty full-on.

But we suppose you have to play to your base.

The sickness 107

It’s always nice to hear from the SNP/Green youth wing first thing in the morning.

Stay tuned for lots more Gentile-obsessed hetro TERF monkey antics, readers!

…you’re not paying attention. Real images from last night’s SNP broadcast:

It’s not a cult, though. The whole thing can be seen here.

We’re currently busy pursuing a rather larger story, readers, but to keep you amused in the meantime we thought we’d share this absolute belter from Wings contributor Angus MacNeil MP today in The National:

Deftly put. Now back to work with us.

You do it to yourself, you do 106

Yes Pete, we did check.

What happened was that there wasn’t a second indyref. And that’s how we know that leaving it to the SNP alone doesn’t work.

Please vote Alba, readers, or we’ll see you here again in another five years.

We’re bored of this story now but this was too good to ignore:

Sir Humphrey would be proud.

Where we’re at 78

It’s not a parody account, we checked.

Your guess is as good as ours, folks. Perhaps all other women were unavailable.

Well, this just got silly.

We’re absurdly touched by your response to the daft wee joke fundraiser we set up this week to raise £50 over a court case. We’re going to have to drink a LOT of fancy gin now. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, at a time when a lot of very good causes are also raising money. We’ll help some of them out from the proceeds.

We can’t help thinking, though, that at a very stressful time for the Yes movement a lot of people were just enjoying the chance to have a bit of much-needed fun. So allow us to offer our extra-special thanks to some unexpected benefactors.

There’s currently a rather large and somewhat embarrassing vacancy at the top of the Yes movement. You may wish to be part of an organisation which includes some very good people seeking to do something about it.

In which case you should click on the image above.

Sweet Violets And Turkish Delights 105

Alert readers from last night will notice that we’re currently running our first fundraiser since June 2019. It’s not one of our proper annual ones, in fact it’s basically just a joke at the expense of the Twitler Youth, but if anyone does want to kindly buy us a small treat of some sort it’ll be most appreciated. Click the pic to donate, if it would amuse you.

(The fundraiser is also to mark the one millionth reader comment on Wings. Jings.)

We’ll be back with some normal Scottish politics news shortly after noon, when we’re expecting to know the outcome of Martin Keatings’ court case over Section 30 powers. Should be a pretty interesting day.

The right side of history 204

In the sometimes-heated trans debate, it’s always nice to hear from Owen Jones.

If we ever find out who it feels, we’ll let you know.

Deadpan Of The Year 2021 92

Posted on January 05, 2021 by

We know that the 5th of January is unusually early to be giving out annual awards, but this is going to be pretty much impossible to beat, so God bless the P&J for giving us all a chuckle in these dark times.

Let’s just quickly check on that “expert”.
