Anyone see Baby Reindeer? See these shocking decades-old revelations about Fiona Harvey in two other stalking cases.

Also known as Fiona Muir. This first case was also discussed in her Piers Morgan interview.

Solicitor Mrs Wray has become the target of Fiona Muir, whom she sacked from a trainee post at her firm, McPhail Lawrence Partnership, in 1997.

Since she was dismissed, she has contacted Mrs Wray's office with a series of threatening phone calls and even turned up at her house on one occasion.

Mrs Wray, wife of Glasgow Baillieston MP Jimmy Wray and the mother of an 18-month-old son, was so worried by Muir's behaviour she issued her staff with panic alarms.

She is now considering making an official complaint to police, after Muir renewed her campaign last week.

It's also understood that Muir has developed a friendship with Mr Wray's ex-wife Catherine, with whom he fought a bitter divorce battle.


Muir previously plagued First Minister Donald Dewar and made an unsuccessful bid to win nomination for a seat in the Scottish Parliament.

She would turn up at the MP's surgeries and meetings in his Anniesland constituency, directing a tirade of abuse against him.

A Labour insider said: "This woman was causing Donald lots of problems. Even now, the colour drains from his face at the mention of her name.

Do you think the pause in the hush money trial until next week is too long?

When I heard that the trial won't resume until Monday, my heart dropped. It's too long. Some jury member may forget important information. If they are Maga, of course they will talk about it. and have plenty of time to be badgered by friends and family to stand by Trump for the "good" of the country. Do you agree, or am I worrying too much?

I wish the Joe Biden would do something like this to help win the election.

I would like to see a campaign to announce a policy pledge card. It would be the size of a credit card. One one side, it would list five things that Biden pledges he will do in very brief bullets. On the other side it would include five things he has achieved.

It isn't so much about the cards, but distilling pledges and achievements. I would bet you most people couldn't name five good things Joe Biden has done, or what he will do. This isn't the way to win an election. Biden's message is drowned out while Trump makes all the noise. The pledge card is essentially a publicity stunt to get the message through. It has been used by the Labour Party (without the achievements) in the UK since 1997. Here is an image for you to see. What are your thoughts?

If Trump is convicted, how will you celebrate?

I will yell with joy so hard, all nearby Magas will hear me. I will then give the cat some Temptations and ask my wife where she wants to go to raise a toast to Trump's time behind bars.

Why is so much money being used to bet on Trump?

Trump's implied chance of winning based on betting is 50.9%
Joe is at 40.7%
Joe was ahead a few weeks ago. What changed?

Take a look at this graph.

Am I the only one who just doesn't find SNL funny?

Maybe it's because I hail from a little place called England and our humor is different there, but my (American) wife thinks it's hilarious. All I see is a lot of obnoxious personalities being obnoxious with jokes that are not funny.
