It's pretty bloody appalling.

Boiledbeetle · 27/09/2023 10:13

bloody hell. thats horrendous. that is massive massive drop!

what the fuck have they been doing?

(rhetorical question - We all know the answer is fuck all!)

Actually it's worse than fuck all. Is there anything they haven't managed to screw up or over completely?

A Reminder: Next Wednesday 4th October is the first day of the FWS court case at the High Court Edinburgh. You will be able to watch online, if the court tech works…

thanks, Rhannion.

Blimey, have they taken a leaf out of Boris Johnson's book on "spaffing it up the wall"? What a reprehensible decision it is.

It's not all bad news for Humza and the SNP:

Bad day for Humza

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2023/10/05/trailblazer-humza-yousaf-picked-wrong-time-to-lose-temper/

It's been archived but he accused the Scottish Tory Leader of lying 😲 regarding his comment on Police numbers being reduced under SNP. Not the done thing (he should have said 'mistaken'), he then tried, unsuccessfully, to weasel out of apologising. Then the Scottish Labour leader agreed with the Tories <sad trombone noise>.

‘Trailblazer’ Humza Yousaf picks the wrong ‘Time’ to lose his temper

Scotland’s First Minister broke the strictest rule of political exchanges the same day he was new cover star of the international magazine

That's got to be worth a Nobel at the very least.

There could be a Nobel Prize for Totally Made-up Pseudoscience.

Do you first degree in Magic at Exeter, go on to a PhD is Gender Bolleaux at - ooh, pretty much anywhere, then really aim for that Nobel Prize

Sturgeon has updated her member's interests - £75k for first instalment for her book.

More trouble for sturgeon and co ahead
Tootsweets23 · 07/10/2023 10:28

Assuming the advance is evenly split 4 x £75k, she'll need to sell 107,000 hardbacks or 235,000 paperbacks to earn back the advance. So more thank all prime minister memoirs except for Tony Blair's.

Nitpicking, I know, but will she herself need to sell that number of copies, or will the publisher?

If the latter, who is this sucker of a publisher? Because I have a book I can offer them.

I SEE NAEBDYS MENTIONING THE GENEROUS DONATION TO THE BATHS

Chersfrozenface · 07/10/2023 12:42

(looks up Pan Macmillan's contact details)

I may be away from the forum for a while, I've a very important blurb to write.

Any tips, RF?

Tootsweets23 · 07/10/2023 12:52

@Chersfrozenface her publisher ultimately will need to sell them - so if they don't sell enough to make the advance back, that is on them - the author gets to keep the advance.

That's what I was counting on

Just need to concoct an advance-attracting blurb.

If party funds can be used to buy a campervan maybe they can also be used to pay for a load of books. They can even be stored in the van when no-one wants them.
