It seems her comments about North Sea oil, referendums, and Jim Murphy didn't answer their burning Harry Potter questions.

8. A Scottish farmer decided to spend far too much on a "scarecrow".

Or scaredeer, rather.

When yer absolutely hammered but the bouncer still lets you in anyway

I've just met the two demolition experts who rigged the #redroadflats that didn't collapse
