Austerity doing its job of austering. @naebD @MARC0VALD0 the economic case for staying and Brexiting is worse. @naebD I think he's right, we need to campaign. Or Scotlamd is truly fucked. @WhiskyPilgrim David Daiches book on Scotch whisky or The Scots Cellar whisky section @jennylandreth this was quite funny, actually you have to watch Froachy Bay on iPlayer, it is very funny. @jennylandreth I watched a load of Gaelic telly that was hugely entertaining local telly @jennylandreth oooooh that's goodTrump seems to be turning into America's Father Jack

Retweeted by Rachel McCormack @SheilaDillon looks lovely @JYoolz just don't let him follow you @JYoolz oh he's be good, get him on! @gordonguthrie @JohnNisbet7 true, but we are in for a bumpy ride with Nrn Irn @JohnNisbet7 @gordonguthrie UK soon won't be able to afford that level of public spending either. @gordonguthrie @JohnNisbet7 yes but things are all in flux. If you told me in 2004 that 2014 indyref would be 45% Yes, I'd have laughed. @JohnNisbet7 @gordonguthrie don't you think they'd vote for federalism within an Irish state?I like my writing days like I like my coffee: permeated by the crippling aftertaste of procrastination guilt and self-regulation failure

Retweeted by Rachel McCormack @silverscotland yeah that'll work. "Scotland my awn wee place, the further I get away fae it, the mair I love it." @gordonguthrie that the gap he filled was there worries me more than a wanker like him filled it. @gordonguthrie I don't think that Mary Beard and the Orange Lodge have much common beyond wanting a United Kingdom in 2014 @gordonguthrie and I am very uncomfortable with him being crowdfunded but he filled a gap that media just left lying about. @gordonguthrie absolutely. So is the Orange Lodge. @gordonguthrie Muriel scrapping some barrels there. Still a long way to go to the bottom. . . @ElleMcElle @MxJackMonroe immediately. Why waste time and their time? @scrummyscran makes ex bankers feel more macho in their new career. @silverscotland Andrew Neil failed at what?If #AE17 had used First Past the Post, the @niassembly would NOT reflect how the people voted: exactly what happens…

Retweeted by Rachel McCormack @NesrineMalik am also waiting for smart London journos to discover that Northern Ireland exists and might soon be a wee headache for May.From the woman who told UK Tory Conf that Scots didn't get invited to plush events incase they stole things. @rosscolquhoun @theSNP @murdo_fraser funny as the rest of the world thinks that's what ScotGov does. Murdo may not speak to rest of worldu know the solution to a lot of the problems of scotpol twitter?
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack @DameDeniseMina deals (Boris has already buggered India) and our food exports will be shafted. We are in the massive shit with this. @DameDeniseMina not for Scotland. We need Unis, finance and tech all buggered by Brexit. Whisky industry in conniptions about world trade> @timhayward BraunBack to bed with lemsip and the plague* *slight coughBut won't be for Scotland, there'll be even less to do than there is now. @RobertJSomynne hard to create a great nostalgia narrative when all around is falling apart. But nice tryAnother striking feature of #AE17: anger (not just social media) on lack UK coverage, or interest, in election. Ditto Irish border? #brexit
