Utterly disgusting reading the comments directed at @StAlbertsG41 School. Even if it's Twitter idiots who hide their real identity, the fact they post these views anonymously makes you wonder what they do publicly. Seems we have a huge racism problem in Scotland after all.
I've just signed "NO NEW PRIME MINISTER WITHOUT A GENERAL ELECTION!" - Please sign and share. We need to make clear to the Tory Party that this a BIG RED LINE that we will not let them cross - actionstorm.org/petitions/ne… @OpenBritainHQ @action_storm
Another disastrous announcement/change by @duolingo. They've now charged me an annual fee for a product that they've since degraded twice. First, no choice of progression/subject; now, getting rid of the Mastery level. Shambles. Must be losing lots of customers. @Duo_is_sad

I think I’m kidding myself that travelling by train is more eco-friendly. Today my @ScotRail 3-coach train had exactly 2 people on board between Dunblane & Perth because the timing and route is so useless to most folk. If only the original useful service still stopped here…

If only I got compensation for the meals I end up buying when @ScotRail leave me stranded as well as the refunded tickets after a two-hour delay getting 27 miles home.

Got this far with Norwegian on ⁦@duolingo⁩ but now the app is a bit of a disaster since they changed the learning pattern. Don’t think it’ll be worth renewing and don’t believe I’m still getting what I paid for either. ⁦@Duo_is_sad⁩ 🇳🇴

Has the Archbishop of Canterbury made a conscious decision not to use the word 'whom' when it should be in his sermon?

Ali Kololo was tortured into confessing to a crime he didn't commit in 2011 and has been in prison ever since. His final appeal is on 26 September - it could mean the difference between a life in prison or a life of liberty for an innocent man >>> secure.reprieve.org/page/113…
Shams was just playing football, but for Israeli occupation soldiers that’s enough to detain, arrest, beat and threaten to mutilate an 11-year-old child. cpt.org/2022/09/13/shams
Equally laughable and embarrassing for Scotland that @BBCJamesCook thought that interviewing a grown man wearing his Rangers kit was valid journalism. Guy spouted total guff about there being “no patriots left in the country” and Cook still included it in report!

Absolute joke of a railway in this country when @ScotRail decides to add Gleneagles to a late-running service to help passengers out but not Dunblane. I'll just go to Stirling and wait 45 minutes for a connection, then? Already 90 minutes late.

With Boris, we thought it couldn't get any worse. Truss is showing in the first hour or so that it definitely could. Very worrying appointments she's making. Showing her well-known incompetence already.

Bit cheeky the way the EIS @eisunion have worded the ballot on the pay deal and strike action. Not sure the electoral commission would approve of that if it were a public vote.

Anybody else hate the new @duolingo layout? No tactical way to get extra points now. No choice in your progress. Just a boring and repetitive linear structure. Hope they realise how stupid it is and change back. #duolingoupdate

Jorginho - take yourself out and have a word. My P6 boys wouldn’t feign a sore face in the school field like you did when Adams tapped the ball towards you tonight. Should have been booked yourself. #SouChe
