Then we read that Scotland on Sunday (yes, it does still exist) had managed to get Downing Street to deny that they had contacted the Kremlin, and say that nor would they in the future.
Rumour has it that the Eton Spiv has entered into some agreement with the Spanish prime minister, who of course also faces losing face and a loss of income from its richest nation. This, by the way, would be the same Spanish prime minister who was threatened by the imperial power of a British gunboat if he didn't mind his Ps and Qs over Gibraltar.
I'd be worried if I were Gibraltarian. Even spoilt boys who went to Eton probably realise somewhere deep inside that they can't always have everything that they want, and that compromise occasionally has to be made. I wonder if our second hand arms salesman has traded one thing for another with their sleazebag government. Heaven knows Mariano Rajoy, and Spain in general, could do with some good news, what with corruption hanging over the government and one of the infantas of the king, not to mention the king himself at his lowest ever popularity being boo'd in the streets!
Dave might not want to lose Gibraltar, but how much more embarrassing (and expensive) would it be to lose Scotland (and that's all he'll be caring about)?
Then, of course, there has been the revelation that despite us being told over and over that British troops did nothing wrong, there may be senior ministers of the Labour government prosecuted for atrocities carried out by Britain in Iraq. Geoff (Buff) Hoon and Adam Ingram together with General Peter Wall are accused that they "knew or should have known" that men under their command were committing war crimes. Based on the theory that "the buck stops here", should not Tony Blair and the Commander in Chief not also be in the dock?
Don't worry though, Labour and the Tories may be deadly enemies, but when push comes to shove, crooks usually stick together. Wee Willie Hague is fighting this with all his erm, might!

And dear old Gordon Brown, proving that that doctorate he got on the Labour Party history, was, erm patchy, says that after a No vote, the Health Service should be devolved to Scotland. Hmmm. The health service is one of the few things that has never NOT been devolved Gordo. Try to keep up. (That's the problem with only occasionally visiting the UK; you tend to forget how things actually work here).
If that wasn't enough, it was revealed that Dave gave his own hairdresser an MBE (the award that they give to cleaners, according to the late Michael Winner, who was offered and refuse it as being beneath his dignity). Still no such immodesty for Dave's £90 a snip barber.
The funniest tweet I've seen all week was this corker from someone who may be slightly delusional, or at least in denial about the debates that Ms Sturgeon has been involved in, but also seems to have a lamentable lack of knowledge about Scottish and British history.
