About us

Welcome one and all, we are scraping the barrel, based out of the illustrious university of the west of Scotland. pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a journalist to new lows. 

essentially a shell corporation for students to gain journalistic experience, scraping the barrel is a reference to our lack of journalistic experience or standards, We are fully unedited, unfiltered and unqualified. if you wanna write something, no matter how nonsensical it may be, you’ve got a home here.
