Fuck You Waterstone’s.

I pre-ordered the signed hardcover edition of Tim Minchins’ Storm via Waterstone’s - at a premium compared to Amazon, I might add.

I’ve just received an email from them, informing me that due to “unprecedented demand”, they’re unable to fulfil the order.

HOW ABOUT TAKING IT OFF THE GOD DAMN FUCKING WEBSITE THEN, AND GIVING PEOPLE THE OPTION TO TRY OTHER AVENUES.

Like, oh I don’t know - AMAZON?!?

Who, of course, have now sold out their - cheaper, copies of that edition, thus making it unavailable.

Maybe, if they’d emailed me to say they couldn’t fulfil the order - that their website still doesn’t fucking display stock volumes correctly, I could have tried Amazon.

Who knows when they realised they hadn’t got enough stock - I’m guessing it wasn’t half a bloody hour ago.

To add insult for good measure, they’ve offered me a discount code for the regular version.

Even with the discount code, it’s still more expensive than Amazon.

This is the second time Waterstone’s have fucked up an order of mine; Fuck you, I hope your inevitable demise arrives sooner than my original prediction of the end of the decade.

I’ll say this for Alex Salmond - Cameron wouldn’t have tendered his resignation if results had gone the other way. Instead we’d have had chaos, on the eve of the beginning of a General Election campaign.

West Lothian question - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Now that Scotland has decided - expect this question to surface, again.

Dear Leader has addressed the Nation.

Interesting how much attention was focused on, for want of a less divisive phrase, “English votes for English Laws”

God knows how an English parliament would work under a Labour Government. I only caught part of Dear Leader’s address - I’ll have to read t’analysis later in the day.

And now it’s official.

And now it’s official.

So much for the constitutional crisis

BBC predicting 55 : 45 in favour of the No campaign. I suppose the question now is whether it’ll be a case of DevoMax, in terms of powers transferred up North - Lord knows Cameron and Co. near enough pledged it.

Choose wisely…

I’m currently slogging my way through Zone One, by Colson Whitehead. Whilst it’s far from terrible, to be honest, I’ll be happy once I’ve finished it.
Fortunately I don’t have much of the book left.
Even more fortunately, I have banana and fruit bread / cake.

I may or may not have procured the national drink of Scotland, on this, the most momentous of days. Incidentally, though it may perhaps seem it, the “Alex” on the coca-cola is no reference to Alex Salmond.
