TRUMP, as he’s about to pack up a 25-year-old nuclear treaty with Russia, has been “through hell” over his impeachment case. Poor Donald.

Meanwhile Russian bombing in Syria hits a maternity hospital, killing many, including children. Down in London, Westminster Abbey, which states it is “a Royal Peculiar”, will ring its bells for the birthday of Prince Andrew. Here in Scotland we may soon be wishing goodbye to General Davidson as she takes her talents to the House of Lords.

Hurry up an independent Scotland, rid of America’s weapons, royal nonsense and a spoilt pet.
