Is it just me or, is the Scottish Labour Supporters stuck between a rock and a hard place if Jeremy Corbyn wins the leadership race. The reason I state this is because, if he wins then surely that would subject Scotland to guaranteed Tory Westminster Governments although on the other hand its his...
By elections at Stoke and Copeland coming up.
The last time the sitting government won a mid term by election was in 1982 when the Falkland war was at its height, and with the Tories in such disarray over the NHS and Brexit, both should shoo ins for Labour.
Obviously someone's been feeding...
Give the news today, that we have a severe shortage of midwives against a backdrop of increased births, why are we not hearing from the employment equality campaigners to have more men trained up. As it stands, only a tiny %age of midwives are male, is this a case of jobs for the women? I thought...

Today is a big day for both the Scottish Government and UK Governments as they decide what to do regarding the environment.
Fracking has been approved at one site in the north of England by Westminster, later the Scottish Government will decide whether to allow UCG under the Forth Estuary.
Nail on head.
Well, it's almost here!!

The astute among you will have noticed that I declined to become involved in most of the hand wringing and wailing yesterday. I'm not going to start today, but I did realise yesterday that there is a need to clear the air.

I don't understand why no other passengers said anything.
If I saw or heard someone speaking like that, I would hope that I'd have the presence of mind to say something calm and tactful to shut them up.
How are drivers finding the 20 mph limit in the zones that are being rolled out. Is it second gear or third or is business as usual?

What an absolute ****er of a man.
If you have ever been involved in on line dating what site did you use and how did you get on?
I fancy trying one out but i dont want to make an erse of myself.
Does anybody or has anybody ever done any research into their family tree and ancestors?
Its something I've fancied trying for a while and having just started to properly look into it the first few websites I've come across are quite expensive.
Does anybody know of any cheaper/free...
Anyone watch it tonight? 1st of a 2 part drama series about Karen Matthews and how she faked the disappearance of her daughter, Shannon in a grand scheme to later find her and claim the reward money (from what I gather, she had seen how much the McCanns reward was and that inspired her idea)....
Approaching 40 and starting to think it's now or never to do something drastic and haul myself into shape that will keep me going for a bit longer than I'm likely to get if I keep going the way I am!

Scottish Secretary David Mundell has said a second independence referendum was possible, but it should not happen because a second ballot would be "seriously unpleasant".

People who talk, use their phones or eat loudly at the cinema are very irritating, but I'm yet to resort to violence.

I’m worried. There is a real danger that UKIP leader Paul Nuttall could win the forthcoming Stoke Central by-election. A victory here could give UKIP a new lease of life – at a time when it is struggling both politically and legally. UKIP’s...

The acca came in for £802.75. I...
I wonder what the Stop the War coalition will say about this horror. They're usually quick off the mark to condemn such outrages.
Why has this story appeared?
It's a total non-story, but it seems to me that it's designed to make sure that as many euro-sceptics as possible don't vote Labour.
Just throwing a question out there and am curious to how people on here will answer.
Is respect a given for all people or does it have to be earned?
I'd be interested to read the reasons behind your answer too.
Looking forward to this tonight. Russell Brand will hopefully be on top form after the slating he has had lately and who better to have in his sights than Nigel "the pricks prick" Farage..... Should be interesting.
I can't even imagine Theresa May coming out with something like this. It's incompetence at best.
Interesting that there is no thread on this.
Aside from the usual comedy capers from our politicians and hyperbolic statements (Murdo Fraser taking the dubious honour there with his lentil sentence) this surely has to be seen as a landmark day for Scotland.
We are now officially the highest...
Article on BBC website. I've no idea if this applies in Scotland. Even if it isn't, it's worth knowing about it.
