So, Rami Malek is to play the Bond villain in the next 007 outing.

Really hoping he does it using his Freddie Mercury persona. Could give a whole new meaning to Killer Queen.

"It's time."

The SNP have launched a new YES website. So, it feels like the campaign is under starter's orders.

Scottish Parliament elections are in May 2021. So, for a referendum to happen before then, they would *have* to be held by autumn 2020.

Autumn this year is probably too soon. Only realistic times would be spring or autumn 2020.

Elections and referendums are hardly ever held in winter or mid-summer.

Main points from the FM's speech:

* legislation by end of 2019 to enable an independence referendum by 2021

* if Scotland taken out of EU, an independence referendum will be held before 2021

We've had a long dry spell, but that speech still won't be setting the heather on fire.
