A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

I was aware of the assorted tales about Ms. Mensch - but decided to follow her anyway. I figured that if News International saw some value there and were investing - it was likely worth a quick look.
I looks like a bit of damage limitation to HeatStreet has set in - I wasn't aware that she'd been sidelined. It was evident to me after a couple of months that she's prone to let the kangaroos loose in the top paddock. Mental health issues generally don't fit into neat boxes imho - I frankly suspected that she's medicated but very willful...
btw DrSimEvans is a tw*t - Carbon Brief is a farce funded by the EU to the tune of £422,677-ish a year - their output reads like a cross between an extremely lame industrial trade journal that simply and unashamedly sucks up to everybody and The Conversation....
Their one saving grace is that they volunteer their funding on their "about us" page linked above - unlike so many who are furtive about their paymasters.
Meanwhile, over at The Guardian:
"Europe poised to take baton from US as leader in global efforts to fight climate change, with America’s commitment to Paris accords at risk"
The EU has yet to learn that the "baton" is a politically poisoned chalice, as BREXITEERS whistle The Great Escape theme tune.
A photograph of the UK Prime Minister dominates the newspapers, as she signs a letter.
In keeping with recent developments in media coverage, no feminist has yet questioned her choice of nail varnish.
It was good to see a Union Flag on one side of a traditional coal/wood fireplace, without an EU Flag opposing it.
BBC preach their "Green Energy" Homeopathy"This new power generation that doesn't work MOST of the time, will generate more energy than old power generation that worked ALL the time"
Bottom line: PR pseudo-green @DrSimEvanssupports MASSIVE energy wasteMasses of windfarm cables all the way into middle of the sea +UNUSED 65% timethen Proper conventional power plants sit idle the other 35% of time
@DrSimEvans"What if the EU had never banned incandescent lightbulbs?I reckon UK peak demand could easily be 6GW higher (2 Hinkleys)@DrSimEvans"
He then fired off another 15 tweets on the topicThe reply" that's great but it's the same technocracy argument as "making the trains run on time" and an administratively well run Raj."
On climate change: We are not spending money on that any more. We consider that a waste of your money.
Like they explain the new twitter search blocks terms like BDSM etc
HeatStreet continue Menches anti Russian line
I thought you were joking about Mensch ,so I search twitter on Mensch mental and there's loads of stuff even from before the Dec 2016 newspaper stories "Conservative MP Louise Mensch admitted that taking Class A drugs left her with “long-term mental health” problems. StandardMurchdoch took her off the Heat Street operation in Dec 2016Heat St appears to take a strong anti-PC line these days .. which is good that it doesn't conform to media groupthink totally.

So has the political landscape changed dramatically in the last couple of years?
I was wrong about East (exc Dundee) West split.It was more Strathclyde + Dundee (old heavy industry areas?) for leave UK vs rest of Scotland.
