It must be the memory playing tricks, but some of us could have sworn that when we woke up last 19 September to the result of the Scottish independence referendum, the SNP had lost.

Sainsbury's Christmas Truce Ad Is Poignant and Beautifully Made

Sainsbury's new Christmas advertising campaign is both beautifully made and very worthy and will, no doubt, help the hyper-grocer sell lots of mince pies, turkeys and Christmas puds! It is also reasonably accurate, apart from the men being far too well-groomed and clean-shaven.
