UK to lift lockdown further but Scotland poses a danger for Boris Johnson

No one except the people living in Scotland have the right to vote on Scottish independence.
By that logic, the entirety of the EU should have had a vote on brexit.

Nicola Sturgeon says she’ll ‘lead Scotland to independence’
Nicola Sturgeon says she’ll ‘lead Scotland to independence’
  After winning a pro-independence majority, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says she’ll “lead Scotland to independence;” no matter what London says. That process will be a hard slog, her predecessor Alex Salmond told RT. “I hope to lead Scotland to independence,” Sturgeon told the BBC’s Andrew Marr on Sunday; adding that it would be “absurd and completely outrageous” for the…

Nicola Sturgeon has pledged to press ahead with plans for a second independence referendum after the Scottish National party won its fourth consecutive Holyrood election, triggering a constitutional battle with Boris Johnson.
In a letter issued before the final results were declared, Johnson attempted to blunt Sturgeon’s attack by urging the first minister and her opposite numbers in Wales and Northern Ireland to join a UK-wide Covid recovery summit involving all four governments.
It was in the UK’s interests for the governments to work collaboratively, the British prime minister wrote, taking a softer approach than on Friday when called a fresh referendum “irresponsible and reckless”.
After counting ended late on Saturday evening, the SNP won 64 seats, missing out on an overall majority by just one seat, after winning a record number of constituencies despite a surge in anti-independence tactical voting.

Johnson should be worried. The pro-independence parties are the majority in Scotland. Together with the Greens the SNP now has a referendum mandate.

The Snuts - W.L. (Review):
I stumbled upon The Snuts thanks to them sharing the same album release week as Demi Lovato’s ‘Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over’. The two were competing for the top spot on the UK albums chart and the former took the spot in the end with their debut album ‘W.L.’. I then decided to give their album a listen and I was won over by the body of work.
The band are classified under the Indie rock genre and the debut record features diversity in terms of both sound and topic. There are the upbeat, head rocking tracks like ‘Always’, ‘Juan Belmonte’, ‘All Your Friends’ & ‘Don’t Forget It (Punk)’ that will immediately get you rocking out to them. Then there are the more groovy tracks like ‘Maybe California’ & ‘Coffee & Cigarettes’ that have this throwback 80’s vibe to them. ‘Boardwalk’ & ‘Elephants’ provide the album with its more moodier moments. The former leaves you lost in a state of euphoria, whilst the latter is put forward with quite some attitude that has you jumping to the chorus. ‘Boardwalk’ is one of the highlights on the album and the way it builds as it goes on elevates the feel of the track in such a magical way. You get completely encapsulated by the track.
The band capture a sense of who they are and where they come from on the record which is most apparent on tracks like ‘Glasgow’ or ‘4 Baillie Street’. More prominently on the former which is about the draw their hometown has on them, it makes you miss and long for Glasgow as if it were your hometown as well. The latter also holds a sense of their hometown and of them as well. It in a way feels like a song about a journey through life and how you look over your past memories and sometimes yarn about being at a certain age or place again.
They also empower and commemorate others on the album. With ‘Somebody Loves You’ being a track with hopes to lift you up, with knowing that you are loved. Then ‘Sing For Your Supper’ commemorates someone who’s passed away, however they don’t want to let go of the person. The vast feeling track ‘No Place I’d Rather Go’ is about wanting to always stay in the presence of this person you love. It provides the album with such a grand moment, the bridge features them singing ‘lalalalalaa..’, which gives you this euphoric feel. It is also threaded throughout the track in the background. You get completely lost in the songs beauty.
The deluxe version features four more tracks than the standard and they seem to be more emotional tracks that are rather sombre and mellow feeling. The album sounds like the perfect record to be played in a live setting and one that you would surely enjoy and get immersed in as someone in the crowd.
What stands out is the authentic feel the record has and how well it captures them as artists. It embodies them, their life and where they come from. They truly earned that number spot and deserve to gain a lot more recognition. Hopefully they are able to keep extending their reach with their music. The album has already been marked as a potential contender for a spot in my year end top ten list. They definitely go down as one of my favourite artists and I can’t wait to see how they grow on their next album.

thank you for your lovely words on my latest fic! it means a lot 💓💓 i spent hours staring at pictures of scotland for references and i’m jealous of the fact you experience it everyday on the daily 😩
Ahh of course, it was so gorgeous and I loved it so it deserved to be praised! Honestly when I was reading it and you mentioned the Highlands I got so excited because I’ve never seen a fic mention the Highlands of Scotland ever! I could visualise the area so vividly, and tbh I kind of matched it up to a viewpoint not too far from where I live and it just made it, personally for me, come so much more alive 🥺 I could be biased in saying this but the Highlands are absolutely gorgeous, especially if you know where to go! But thank you for sharing such a beautiful fic that also made me feel a little bit like 🥰 because it was based in the place I call ‘home’ 🥺🥰

Val McDermid leaves Sky journalist speechless by switching to Scots. It serves him right for asking stupid questions.

Dirleton Castle | Scotland
It was a spontaneous visit to this 13th century medieval fortress in East Lothian. The first thing that came to my mind that who was the owner of the castle? 🤔 If it was the Royals, I would know right away. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Then as I walked through the narrow and steeped alleys and stairs of the enchanting ruins (piece of advice: don’t wear high heels! 👠I almost fell! 🙄), I learnt that the castle was owned by three families over the centuries: de Vaux, Haliburton and Ruthven. Each family were instrumental in adding different functions within the castle. The most famous addition is the 15th century Ruthven Lodging which served as a main residence for the Ruthven family. For the pandemic, the visit of the Castle and its garden has been made in a one way system and some of places (such as prisons) were not possible to visit. However, I could encounter some fascinating ruins of the Great Hall, the Bakery and the Kitchen. The Great Hall is now an open arena with an elevated stage, which provides a beautiful view of the gardens. And, the enormous vault holding the Bakery construction underneath and kitchen on the top of it, is quite a medieval engineering genius I witnessed today! 😀
