I've always been pro-EU, but I'm seriously beginning to have my doubts. 
The Hellenic people have today dealt a huge blow for all Europeans against the corporate interests that over the last 8 years have foisted the political choice of austerity economics across the Continent. The 60%-plus vote to reject the latest demands for massive cuts in public services and ...

How much is a loaf of bread? Sarah Willingham thinks it's 75p. One of the other dragons was at least honest enough to say that he didn't know and that his housekeeper buys it. 

Bread is £1.50 in my local shop. Same stuff that I buy in Tesco, or the Co-op, and delivered by the same van, but at very different prices. 

These are the people that are allegedly driving our economy. Forgive me for my lack of faith.
Meet the new dragons, they've full of fire and they're ready to go, but who are they?

It will be interesting to see what else turns up in the latest batch of declassified documents. This is just bizarre!
British officials considered transplanting the population of Hong Kong to a new “city state” in Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles under a plan to deal with the end of Britain’s lease on its Far East colony.

I was just drifting off to sleep when it passed through. Best storm I've seen for a while.
A dramatic thunder and lightning storm lit up many parts of Scotland overnight.

Damn it. These fucking websites that throw up the old "please like us on Facebook" popups are doing my head in. 

First of all, you're assuming that I use Facebook. I do, to keep in touch with family and friends, and I am in a group for work purposes, but that's it. I don't follow brands, etc on Facebook, and have no intention of doing so. 

Secondly, if you have an RSS feed, I'll subscribe to that if I read your content on a regular basis. Chances are that I've landed on your website because I'm already subscribed. 

If you want to suggest that I like you on Facebook, please put the relevant links to the side of the page. I will still see them, and I'll make my choice. I don't need it right in my face, thank you very much.

That reminds of when I checked a few years ago, it was 30 Celsius at midnight, I despaired.

The end of an era. Back in the day this was the  place to procure a post-pub pie.
The Aberdeen bakery firm Thain's - famous for its 24-hour shop - is to be taken over by an Aberdeenshire-based bakery.

It's so bloody frustrating. We have it within our power to seriously reduce CO2 emissions. Maybe we don't all like "windmills" because some of us think they spoil the view (I'm lookin' at you, Mr Trump), but I don't see wind turbines as a blot on the landscape any more than I do the huge electricity towers that carry the high-voltage cables across our countryside. 

It's not just about saving the planet as a whole. It's also about improving the atmosphere in our towns and cities; the places where we live and work. 

We have technology that works now, and technology that's in development, but seriously at risk because of a lack of investment. New technology needs a wee bit of nurturing, but if the investors are looking for short-term gain, it was always going to be doomed. 

It was never going to be all about wind, or all about wave. Renewable energy is about providing a mixture of generation methods, combined with improving energy storage.

Communities will hop on the bandwagon if they know that some or all of the profits of a particular scheme will come their way. Expect apathy if those profits only go to line the pockets of some remote, faceless investor. 
As we slowly make the urgent transition towards a low carbon energy grid there is a danger that the future may not be all that different from the past. The UK Government has so far focused its less...

Yeah, yeah, I know I'm a "greenie" and all that, but sometimes my inner petrol-head takes over. By 'eck it's gorgeous.

It will be interesting to see how this Citizens Income works in practice. It's an idea that I'm greatly in favour of. 
Idea is for guaranteed basic level of income for everyone in society regardless of circumstance THE city of Utrecht in the Netherlands is set to trial a universal, unconditional income – known most commonly as citizen's income – to see if it the idea works effectively in practice. The citizen's income is supported by the Scottish Greens and the SSP in Scotland, and means that a basic level of non-taxable income is provided to all citizens regar...
