Overcast with a cold wind today. It's supposed to get up to 12C, but we're a notch or two short of that.
A notch or two short of the mark was the candidate for the Labour Party in the constituency of Moray, east of Inverness. He tweeted himself into oblivion by writing offensive comments on Twitter. Stuart Maclennan was promptly deselected by the party. An object lesson to treat social media with caution. People have got sacked by blogging in the past, thinking they were just talking to themselves. Nope. You're talking to the world on here.
We shall have our newspapers delivered at a normal hour again as of tomorrow. Since Highland Airways folded, our papers came on the ferry (with the exception of the P&J) and in the shops after 3pm. Outlying districts did not get any papers before 9pm in some instances. Loganair will now take the papers in first thing in the morning, and we'll have our reads again by 10.30 am.
