#IN­DYREF2

Scottish Tories de­manded Nicola Stur­geon rule out a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum on Scottish in­de­pen­dence when she met Theresa May in Lon­don. @An­gryscot­land shared: “The Tories aren’t any­where close to hav­ing a ma­jor­ity in Scot­land. They’re in no po­si­tion to de­mand that the Scottish Gov­ern­ment rules out any­thing.” @Sol­sys­ter_ tweeted: “To us in the Scan­di­na­vian coun­tries, union­ist claims that Scot­land’s pop­u­la­tion is too small for in­de­pen­dence is just un­in­tel­li­gi­ble.” @Rossthom­son_mp said: “So much for the SNP lis­ten­ing to peo­ple. They will use any ex­cuse to have #In­dyref2. It’s a com­plete outrage. Nicola Stur­geon needs to take this threat off the ta­ble im­me­di­ately. End the games – and stop us­ing #Brexit to try to split our coun­try in two.”

#NOMORESANDWICHES

The av­er­age UK first-time buyer’s de­posit is around £33,000. An es­tate agent said mil­len­ni­als can give up buy­ing cof­fee, gym mem­ber­ship, holidays, take­aways, the lot­tery and a phone up­grade to save £30,000 over five years. @Hen­rypryor said: “Good to see @strut­tand­parker turn­ing up the sen­si­tiv­ity switch – mil­len­ni­als just need to man up, they seem to sug­gest. That’s go­ing to go down well!” @in­di­a­block noted: “So glad we have es­tate agents here to tell us we just need to never go on hol­i­day, eat lunch or buy a lot­tery ticket and we could buy our dream house! Oh, and make sure we were born into money.” @bert­news of­fered: “As a mil­len­nial who rents and prefers wraps to sand­wiches, I find the sand­wich nar­ra­tive very prob­lem­atic.”

#HEARTSMAINSTAND

Hearts will re­quest their game with Partick This­tle on Sun­day be post­poned if they can’t get the re­quired safety cer­tifi­cate from the City of Ed­in­burgh Coun­cil. @Don­ald­sone­spn en­thused: “Hearts may or may not play here this Sun­day. But when the main stand is ready for oc­cu­pancy sup­port­ers are in for a treat.” @stevesyb fumed: “This is ab­so­lutely pa­thetic. How long do they ex­pect other clubs and the foot­balling au­thor­i­ties to com­ply with their fre­quent fail­ure to meet build­ing dead­lines etc?” @Sbi­enkowski said: “I don’t re­ally un­der­stand the back­lash at all. It’s pretty nor­mal for a project like this to run over dead­lines.”
