    Few Scotland players chose to kneel to Black Lives Matter ahead of a historic victory over England in the Six Nations rugby tournament, triggering a woke backlash. The Scots won the Calcutta Cup from England on their much larger neighbour’s home soil for the first time since 1983 — in a stadium which was largely empty, thanks to the anti-coronavirus lockdown — but the win has been somewhat marred by a furore over what the BBC has dubbed “kneegate”. “#AsOne is the message from Scottish Rugby. But the players don’t seem to be ‘as one’ in their stance against racism,”...

    The Scottish parliament on Wednesday rejected a call for the government to investigate how Donald Trump funded his purchase of two golf courses in Scotland, a request dismissed as "pathetic" by one of the former U.S. president's sons. The Scottish Green Party brought forward a motion calling on ministers to seek an "unexplained wealth order" (UWO) against Trump over his acquisition of the golf courses and resorts in north and west Scotland. It was defeated by a vote of 89 to 32. The party's co-leader Patrick Harvie said there were longstanding concerns about Trump's financial conduct, describing the ex-president as...

Is this guy for real? Barr is a freakin hot mess. I never did warm to him. He said some good things along they way that made you think he wanted real justice but he has proven again and again there is a two tier justice system working against conservatives and President Trump. I still think he instructed Durham to investigate Trump...
