What I want to know is why energy prices here are not now tumbling.

In previous years they were quick to cite rising oil price for double digit increases in gas & electricity bills.

So how is he going to lead the Scottish Labour opposition at Holyrood from Westminster? :confused:

His victory shows that Scottish Labour is still a branch office of Westminster Labour.

I'd like to be an aristocrat (let's face it, life was pretty miserable for most ordinary people) in the early 16th century. I would commission Leonardo and Titian to paint portraits of me :)

Are they still what they used to be, worth waiting for?
