    I'm more than happy to admit my ignorance on how generous the UK welfare system is or is not, and am genuinely interested to understand more. I suppose everything is relative. It may be generous for immigrants from Africa or Middle Eastern country, but does not compare favourably with some parts of the EU, particularly France, Spain, the Low Countries and Scandinavia. I accept this probably explains the need for free school meals in the UK in the holidays and the importance of work from those like Marcus Rashford.

    One of the biggest challenges is knowing what you are entitled to claim and how you go about doing so, particularly when many claimants are already at a disadvantage, be it basic English and Maths skills, physical disability etc

    I'm grateful that I've never had to call on any of the various agencies for assistance

    As a side point I would urge anyone on here who is 50 plus to undertake a state pension forecast online and to check that your NI contributions record is correct. Mine was but my partners wasn't, and it could've cost her £20 a week reduced pension

    Sturgeon live on the local radio right now, grovelling for forgiveness before asking everyone to stick to the rules she's set!

    She's only human, but whilst the majority of people are sticking to the rules, it's the examples set by those in positions of power or influence that the minority cling to to justify their arsehole behaviour, and even if it's just a slip it's really not acceptable - wait til Big Ruth gets a hold of her <laugh>

    Absolutely.
    Really hope there's a deal where everyone has compromised and we can move on.

    The fact that Margot Ferrier is still in post doesn't do her any favours. It seems the SNP can get away with murder with their supine press...

    There are suggestions that Johnson has caved on fish as well as LPF.

    It'll be interesting to see how he spins it.

    Sturgeon was pretty clear she wanted her out but only had so much power to influence it.

    She's been kicked out of the SNP, but has refused to resign her position as an MP...
