We're back after our two week break where Lesley had a braw time on Barra and I struggled with my less than stellar DIY skills.

It's results time for our senior school pupils but Lesley examines whether it makes any sense at all to conduct national tests on five year olds and asks what, if any, evidence exists for doing it.

As deadlines approach on Brexit deals and the wave of All Under One Banner marches goes from strength to strength is it time for Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP to embrace the groundswell of popular opinion and go for Indyref2 before it's too late?

After his recent controversial article in the Daily Telegraph is this the end of Boris Johnson or another step on his way to becoming leader of an overtly reactionary Tory Party?

All of the above plus daft twitter nonsense and dark days at Tannadice.
