  OK - but didn't Andy give up his Ferrari because he felt like a prat in it, and now prefers his old VW Polo runabout? ( probably for anonymity, admittedly)
Yes he did, and also the insurance was going to cost as much as the car because he'd only recently passed his test.  His Dad was certainly mightily relieved!

I don't know if he still has the VW Polo though because the last I read anything about it, which was just after he won Wimbledon, he said he was thinking about buying a new car.  That said, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he still drives the VW because these cars are reckoned to be comfortable and reliable, as well as providing him with more anonymity.


But, Andy is a F1 fan. yes
How do you know that?  I've heard him mention a few sports but never F1.

Yup.. he did.
I did love his Aston Martin, tho'.. (now gone).. and I think he's still got his trusty VW Polo, which he passed his test in.
I've got a 1979 Mini sitting gathering dust in my garage.

But, Andy is a F1 fan. yes

  Yes I saw it, and continue to be impressed. Even the left field questions about who she'd support in an England/Wales international and her critique of Cameron"s tawdry and misplaced exploitation of English nationalism was spot on.

PS It wasn't Andrew Marr this time, It was Ewan Davis
doh Another senior moment, although I did think he sounded too amiable to be Marr.

PS: It's Evan Davis. wink

Ahem.. Eyebrow raise.
Some folks (like myself) might mightily disagree with you, there.
Including Andy. yes

Thank you. Added to my watch list.

Fair point, although I think it should be noted that several of the alleged culprits have been caught on video and twitter expressing the same views.
If they have, then more fool them.  I've never denied that the SNP has its lunatic fringe, but that doesn't mean that they represent the views of all the SNP candidates.

As for Neil Hay's tweets made in 2012, I agree it was pretty stupid of him, and he quite possibly is instrumental in helping Labour's cause in Edinburgh South, given that this constituency has been Labour held for years and the MP quite popular (for those who vote for the candidate and not the party).  I'm sure Ms Sturgeon would have asked him to stand down had it not been for the fact that the date for nominations (9 April) had passed - and I see UKIP have a similar situation on their hands - my only consolation being that I wasn't one of the ones who elected him to stand in the first place!

Yep. But in turn it's also hard to determine what of that disproportionality is a result of unfair policies, and what is a result of happenstance. Example: there's the double whammy of London being the capital city, and it being in close proximity to our biggest trading partner.

No problem. Obviously that doesn't answer the question of if it's fair.

I also had a quick look to see if this disparity is similar in other European countries. My theory is that it's fairly typical (note: that doesn't mean it's morally right) that there's an income inequality between the capital city/financial centre and elsewhere. Anecdotally it does seem to be (for example, compare Berlin to Kampf Lindfort), but I don't have any easily digestible figures to clearly prove or disprove that.
  No indeed. There is little to be deduced from that other than most of the wealth in the UK is disproportionately  "generated" in London and the South East.

Did either of you, or anyone else on here, listen to Nicola Sturgeon being interviewed by Andrew Marr on BBC1 this evening?  If not I'd suggest you catch up with it on iPlayer because it would go a long way to answering some of your questions, including the IndyRef one, although whether you believe what she says or not is up to you.  Personally I find her a lot more credible and easier to listen to than Salmond (not too difficult that), and also as these sort of interviews go it was fairly lighthearted at times, yet this is the woman who many in rUK see as having grown two horns and a tail and whose sole intention is to wreck the UK.

Boogers - we've all heard about 'secret dossiers' before in the UK, and The Scotsman has never been in love with the SNP, so this 'revelation' doesn't surprise me one bit.
