In,yet another in the series of,most momentous weeks for the UK Parliament we inevitably begin with last night's events at Westminster.

Lesley,wisely,was in her bed as they unfolded.Daft lad here could not resist the siren call of "Division" from Speaker,John Bercow. As per usual we try and make sense of it all and consider the now inevitable General Election from both a UK and Scottish perspective.

Theresa May announced her Honours list earlier today. I have my say on Geoffrey Boycott's knighthood.
