Big brother is watching you

But I ain't watching it - not if Tommy Sheridan's going to be on it, as predicted by the Scotsman. Actually, I will - unable to avoid it. Like looking at an accident.

The tale of Tommy's demise is a bit sad, as Dave Osler says.

Slightly embarrassing being Scottish sometimes. I'm left wondering what it is about our political culture that produces this sort of cheesy celebrity-salesman type demagogues.

No, scrub that. Least up here we don't try to pretend this sort of kitsch represents socialist politicians reaching out to the yoof, or something - like some of the mad London-based SWPers do. Now that's embarrassing. Bought used cars from them, so they did.
