Dundee City of Culture Bid

It’s been surprising how little and much has been said about Dundee’s bid to be UK City of Culture 2017. How little in the long-run up. And then so much in the last week. Some good, some bad. Some indifferent. The public face of the bid started with the launch of We Dundee with locals […]

Useless Council Awards 2013

It really must be the silly season as two Councils have went head to head racing ahead of others in publicly crowing about their financial incompetence.

No Grok talks at lunch but instead some pizza supplied by NCR. There was the usual swag throughout t-shirts, back massagers, bottle […]

Elvis has left the building

Given that the company is long since dead it’s probably ok to write about the computer systems at Virgin Megastores. Note: I fully expect to edit this for errors and clarifications when other former employees see this, especially as I can’t remember what each of the 20 function keys did so am making up the […]

Demo in Dundee

Dundee showed Solidarity with Gaza on Saturday. At least 500 and probably 800 people turned out at short notice for a march and demonstration on Saturday. Really lively vibrant demo, positive atmosphere. Some good speeches afterwards, some cringe worthy ones, I certainly do not support Hamas, I support the Palestinians right to resists, but that […]
