Quotes

"The lack of childcare is one of the biggest problems for lone parents, mainly because it is so expensive. The Scottish Government says it wants to extend nursery provision to two-year-olds, but it needs to be affordable. At the moment, if you are a lone parent who’s working, the majority of your wage needs to be going on childcare, and you begin to think what’s the point?"
"Tayburn deals in brands - the name, the visual appeal, the personality and emotional appeal behind the product. Designing a new brand in a crowded category (and the beer category is bursting at the seams) means having to understand customers' behaviours and disrupting their shopping pattern - offering them something that breaks the conventions of the aisle they're shopping in."
...She said: "Around 2pm on April 25 a dog walker so a black object around ten metres from a path - he looked more closely and saw it was the remains of a dog. "Police attended and the area was secured - attempts were made to see if the dog was microchipped but it was not. "It's owners could not at that time be found but information as to its owner was later received. "On April 28 the owner met Mr Graham and brought the story about the dog being found up on the TV. The accused initially said 'that's sick'. They went into the kitchen and Mr Graham then said 'it was me'." Graham, 23, a prisoner at HMP Perth, pleaded guilty on indictment to causing Bruno unnecessary suffering by causing his death in the fire on April 24 or 25. He further admitted an attempted knife robbery committed alongside Steven Gourdie, committed on May 2 at High Street, Leven. Larry Flynn, defending Graham, said: "He has a vague recollection of doing this but was abusing alcohol at the time. "His recollection is that he attempted to kill it with a knife but he failed and he went to get the petrol then returned." Sheriff James Williamson deferred sentence on Graham and Gourdie until next month for social work reports and a risk assessment. He said: "He went about this in a calculated manner - it wasn't a spur of the moment thing. This was a grotesque act of savagery." PC Ian Laing, wildlife crime officer for Police Scotland's Fife Division, said: "This defenceless animal suffered immensely prior to its death and the incident evoked considerable outrage from the local community. "A robust investigation was launched to identify whoever was responsible, resulting in Alastair Graham being arrested and charged. "His guilty plea is testament to the work carried out by Police Scotland to bring this offence to trial and the support from the public who provided vital information during our enquiries.""
She said: "I had so much fun. I actually got slightly carried away and everybody was going 'Stop now, Ronni, stop, you can stop'."
