Hi All... thanks for all the excellent and informative posts with regards to 'What the Scottish Papers Say...', and I have to agree wholeheartedly with McGuinness that this is an excellent way of keeping up to date with current affairs and the important stuff that is going on in our country.

 

Normally I avoid the papers like the plague, partly because I think that most of the stuff they print is absolute bollocks but also because I can't be arsed going out for them each morning.  And before anyone points out that I can have my paper delivered online, well, I don't have to now, thanks to this forum topic!

 

With regards to Magpie's previous post, it was excellent and there are quite a few stories included in the post that I have been keeping an eye on, so I'm off to read my 'paper' now.
