Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been affected by the Manchester Arena atrocity. Our prayers are with you.
A group of vile Scottish Nationalists took to Twitter and facebook today to accuse the UK Government of having a hand in the Manchester Arena terrorist atrocity. Others went as far as to suggest the barbaric act was good news for Theresa May. Here's a selection of the worst.

@CaolSaorsaAlba casually tweeted: "I smell government sponsored attack on its own soil.". As of 8pm today the tweet was still present.
@SonnyinScotland - known for her controversial social media tweets tweeted: "anyone who doesn't think @theresa_may wil use a terrorist attack to win the election need to get a fucking clue #GE2017".
Lesley Munro took to facebook and Twitter to make her vile feelings totally clear. Her facebook post read: "Hmm Tories lead starts tanking, then 'Terrorist' attack? convenient timing. Feel heart sorry for all the people caught up in this awful attack, and the Families of people who didn't make it. Incredibly sad. But I'm well suspicious of who perpetrated this attack".
Lesley Munro's tweet was just as bad. She tweeted: "I'd look closer to home - I really suspect Govt involvment in this 'attack', right at the time the Tory vote was slipping? Think about it".
Debbie Hicks - vice-chair of Stroud Labour Party
The vile tweets weren't just limited to those above. Debbie Hicks, the vice-chair of Stroud Labour Party, has tweeted that the Manchester terror attack is “wonderful timing for Theresa May“.
There seems to be a lack of evidence currently connecting this to a live facebook account. It could have been deleted - or it could be a hoax. The name doesn't seem to exist on social media. We've made sure the picture isn't present in case it is an innocent. Hoax or not, a despicable human being has gone to the effort of creating this.
Kirsty Blackman: “I don’t think most folk in their daily lives give two hoots about whether Scotland is a member of the union. The constitutional issues are not the biggest concern for an awful lot of people and, in fact, I very rarely talk about Scottish independence in the chamber, because I talk about things that matter to the people of Aberdeen."
It is being reported that Serena Cowdy, the woman allegedly involved in a love triangle with Stewart Hosie and SNP MP Angus MacNeil, is to marry Hosie after a Christmas proposal.
Serena Cowdy, 36, reportedly had affairs with MacNeil and Hosie - which led to both mens marriages coming to an end. Stewart Hosie was married to Shona Robison.
Civic & Joyous Nationalism at its very best!

EU Withdrawal: Irritable Bill SyndromeBy: Kevin Hague / chokka blog The EU Withdrawal Bill is currently being eased through the bowels of Westminster, digested by the Houses of Commons and Lords, inched forward by the peristalsis of readings, committees and amendments. The question of where repatriated powers should lie and how this impacts the devolution settlements is clearly going to be a cause of irritation as the Bill forms. Nobody expects this to be a smooth passage.
The Little University on the PrairieBy: Lily of St. Leonards Apparently there is a plan in Scotland to pay students £8000 per year to study. Scottish students already have their fees paid by the taxpayer. The idea now is that they should be paid the equivalent of the "living wage" to study.
