Staunch

Via twitter:

Adam Tomkins MSP

Terrified Tories?! I don’t think so, Nicola. Staunch in our opposition to separatism, yes. Insistent that once in a generation means once in a generation, yes. But the only thing we’re terrified of is the damage the Nats are doing to our schools, our NHS, and our economy


This is of course in relation to Nicola Sturgeon getting upset about the inevitable rejection of the request/demand for the powers to hold another referendum, as is the democratic mandate the SNP have.

It makes me consider the use of the word staunch. Let's face it, it's a Rangers word. I know it, you know it, Adam Tomkins knows it.

Are the Scots Tories trying to steal the kulchur of Rangers? Are the Bears going to put up with it? Or are they one and the same, Tories and Gers?

Down with this sort of thing, that's what I say! Let Rangers be Rangers! Keep politics out of football!

She’s an assistant blender already. They did a nosing test at her work and she did better than the master blender!

I reckon she’ll get there. Hopefully sooner rather than later and I can do even less work than I do now.

Sounds like it.

I would imagine there’s not been many female master blenders in the history of whisky.

Not to my knowledge. She does seem to be good at her job. The one with the distillery anyway...

She came home a couple of weeks ago with ‘homework’. It consisted of testing 3 500ml bottles filled with new testers for the flavoured gin they’re looking at.

I don’t think they’ve reached a decision yet.

Aye I was seeing a lassie who did the recruitment for some whisky firm.
Every time she came up she brought a bottle of roku, some %gin they had acquired or at least marketed.
Very handy

Lauders it's a baitch right enough.

One consolation for me is I get 4/5 hotels for <50 in remote places I

wouldn't go near in high season where they are asking 150/200 and it's

full of loudmouth priks.

And the hillpaths are quiet.

Get this month out the way
