Thu 29th Nov – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Dad’s Army  (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Liverpool Express (music round).

I love the free answer tune in the Newsroom music round tonight. The band is called Liverpool Express and it just sounds so damn Seventies smooth that they could be from California rather than Merseyside.

Apparently, Liverpool Express were big in Brazil and played to crowds of 250k people down there. Who knew?

Anyway, great tune:

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: TOURIST TAX.

Estimated Revenue: £11 million Per Year

This is what they say a tourist tax of £2 per room per night would bring to Edinburgh. It doesn’t sound like a lot but I guess it all helps.

People talk about a possible tourist tax being used for street cleaning. I’d like to see it spent in our underfunded primary schools.

Hotels claim the tax would lead to reduction in visitors and an overall loss to the city but I can’t see that couple of quid making a difference to anyone’s choice to visit Edinburgh.

Tax ’em

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.
