You might have noticed from my sidebar that due to the apparent demise of fellow Polis bloggers, I appear to be the only Polisperson posting from north of the border.
I feel it incumbent upon me then to keep everybody up to date with the weird and wonderful happenings, Polis related or otherwise, up in the frozen wastelands of God's own country.
Following on from what might be considered the pilot post, I have decided to post regularly on such matters and I have these following offerings for you.
BBC NEWS | Scotland | North East/N Isles | Pub-goers to be tested for drugs
Random drug testing attacked - Press & Journal
Well at least it's a better plan than this or this.
Maybe Mr Rumbles should have a peek at this before he opens his mouth and puts his foot in it.
Twining will like this snippet.
Up here in Draconia we still occasionally persecute, sorry prosecute, very wee weans. But just to level the playing field, I believe adults will now have to suffer like the little children. It's significant that once the pain is to be meted out on adults, a furore starts. I did warn you. A crafty US judge has taken this principle even further.
We have just celebrated St Andrew's Day and Gadget will be interested to note this ovine method of marking the occasion.
You can read this snippet and make your own mind up. I have. Get off your behind, quine.
A while back I bleetered on about prostitution. I think that the Polis are going to say to the Law Makers, "We told you so."
By far and away my favourite snippet recently has to be the Spiderpig debacle. Brilliant.
As regular visitors will know, I have a passion for whisky (in moderation of course) and our wonderful Chancellor and his boss, despite being Scots, seem determined to destroy the industry and dent my pocket. I have four related offerings to mull over whilst you sip (very slowly) your dram.
Outrage at tax raid on the whisky industry - Press & Journal
Excise duty increase leaves a bitter taste - Press & Journal
BBC NEWS | Scotland | 'Whisky sour' claim after Budget
BBC NEWS | Scotland | Whisky duty rise 'to be revised'
I cannot leave you without commenting on what's happening down south. The new Government inspired (tongue firmly in cheek) Police Pledges leave me awestruck and this article's heading sums it up;
Police will respond quicker to burglary victims if they are 'upset' - Telegraph
I have yet to entertain a genuine complaint of housebreaking from a cheerful householder! I'll let Jacquie Spliff know when I do.
Secondly, I note there's been a bit of a stooshie over some CCTV footage again. Don't mess with me has posted the most illuminating take on this in my view. I also direct you to a previous post on the Perils of CCTV from my good self.
Finally, Jox Vox rule.
