Scotland has made four changes to the starting line up before playing Australia in the last of this year’s Autumn Internationals at Murrayfield.
Newly elected UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall, called for English devolution in his first speech as UKIP leader after previously suggesting Scottish MPs should be removed from the House of Commons.
Nuttall has replaced Nigel Farage as permanent leader of the party winning over 60% of the vote in the second Leadership election the party has had in the last 3 months.
The last election was labelled a shambles after Diane James, elected in September, resigned only 18 days later, subsequently leaving the party. Nigel Farage had to return to the leadership role while a new leader was selected.
In the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in the US, City of Edinburgh Council have installed light-hearted ‘Ballot Bins’ along Leith Walk.
The bins allow the people of Edinburgh to vote with their cigarette butts and settle the question: ‘President Donald Trump: ‘Dream’ or ‘Nightmare’?’
These bins are part of an initiative that wants to set up more Ballot Bins in the Leith Walk area later this month. It is hoped that the campaign will ease strain on the area’s communal bins, identified as ‘hotspots’ for overflowing and fly-tipping.

This follows pressure from opposition politicians for him to speak after various proposals to bring ScotRail’s railways into public ownership.
ScotRail, who are currently operated by Abellio, have been experiencing various problems with their services.
Charlotte Twyning of Abellio UK, told to the BBC: “It should be recognised that half of the rail industry is already nationalised in the form of Network Rail and any operator that runs the ScotRail franchise – public or private – does so to a tightly specified Scottish government contract.”
