NATIONAL columnist Paul Kavanagh (aka the Wee Ginger Dug) is joined by journalist Stewart Ward for our first Dugcast of 2020.

The world moved a step closer to World War 3 after the US killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani – and some familiar patterns are emerging.

But, knowing where our expertise lies, we're also moving on to more familiar territory! And that's the UK not knowing where their expertise lies – embarrassing themselves on the Queensferry Crossing.

We're also looking at the state of Scottish Labour, amid calls for the party to split off its branch office.

In fact, would independence benefit the party? Paul explains why he thinks so.

We've also had some vintage Boris Johnson – and weren't impressed by his Greek.
