There's plenty of news sites that do that too. Channel 4 fact check, and USA equivalents. There must be enough of them to establish a pattern.

I've had one experience with TalkTalk, and that was the they came to my door and blatantly lied about the broadband speed I could achieve by switching to them.

I wouldn't touch them with a bargepole, and especially not after this!

Solar eclipse incoming
 
Total solar eclipse coming our way in March - and it's partially visible from Scotland - plus loads of other amazing things to spot in the sky! #Stargazing  
March is an exciting month this year to marvel at the wonders of the sky both day and night. What, with the familiar celestial starbox above us alongside the once-in-a-lifestyle chance to observe a solar eclipse from the UK on the morning of 20th March (the day of the Vernal Equinox).

Erm. I see #blueandgold what are the rest of you on? And finally today's xkcd makes sense. That's #blueandgold too.

 #O2
 
I've got an +HTC​ One Mini 2, using the default sms app, the +O2 in the UK​ Tu Go app, +Snowball​ and a Pebble Watch. I always see new messages on my watch and snowball first, then o2 then the sms app, sometimes with several hours delay between each step. Any idea why?

Cool idea but I fear it'll just be a footnote in history like the elevated transport at Loch Lomond (?) remembered in the Kelvingrove museum

So Jim Murphy, leader of Labour's Scotland branch, wants to work in London rather than Edinburgh?
 
Jim Murphy will stand for Westminster seat - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-31668270
Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy says he is the party's candidate for East Renfrewshire at the general election in May.

Potentially, yes. However, Murphy's closest rival in that seat is Tory and they may vote tactically to keep the SNP out.

There was speculation at one point that he was looking for an MSP to step down to trigger a by-election so he'd be delivering the questions during FMQ but couldn't find a willing MSP to step aside. MSPs get a resettlement grant if they aren't re-elected, but if they step down mid-term they lose that. I guess the Labour party themselves weren't willing to reimburse the poor stooge that got left without that tidy sum.
