I've stayed up to watch this (will pay for it in the morning :greengrin)
Trump is horrific (he comes across as drunk and it's difficult to make out what point he's trying to make at times) and Clinton is playing it steady, but it's easy to see how he will appeal to a lowest common denominator.
Serious financial issues at Women for Independence. Guardian alleging that Natalie McGarry MP is under the spotlight
Is that them down to 54?
If ever a company set itself up to shoot itself in the foot until there was no foot left then Tesco is it. I was a Tesco shopper for years even after their bad PR over pricing. They then shut several stores that I used and also cancelled new stores planned at a few locations.
Today I learn that...
Does anyone work in a job where your pay isn't performance related where there is a pay gap between men and women? Serious question. I don't know of any.
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...
Terrible accident, and from reading the report, there may have been faults on all sides.
One question that has always bothered me with this and any other kind of fine, by the courts or any authority, where does the money go? In this case,...
Recently I'm getting more and more plastic bags through my door asking for clothes for various charities.
Today I found this article published in the Guardian online (albeit 6 years ago) giving a insight as to what's going on.
I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin.
So what does the future hold for Labour?
What with the exposure of Momentum promised by Channel 4 Dispatches already to be viewed tomorrow night, Panorama will...
Any recommendations for the best Full scottish breakfast in Edinburgh?
Im often up reasonably early on match days and like to get something into the stomach before a few pre match beers. What do my learned friends recommend?
Nobles in Leith is pretty good, bit pricey but good stuff. Spoons...
This article appeared in the Scotsman the other day, when I read it, I was surprised to read that the Union had given away their right to strike for wonga.
Then I read this. Don't...
Does anyone still use Yahoo? What is it for these days?
Anyone a member? Is it worth the money.
I'm in London but in Edinburgh quite a bit on business these days. So I'd use the venues down south much more but not exclusively.
Interesting selection of single cask on their shop but doesn't say which distilleries.
This is a good story in its own right, but the list of awards at the end amused me.
This was posted on my FB wall.
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 have many friends who voted...
I suppose that everyone who runs for President must be pandering to their ego to some extent or another, but Trump seems to have taken it to another level.
In addition, not only has he no political skills, he has no diplomacy and, I genuinely believe he is a threat to...
Willie Rennie now calling the Conservatives and SNP the "Terrible Twins"
This from a man whose party jumped into bed with the Tories and sold it's voters down the river.
You couldn't make it up. :greengrin
Australian family Gregg & Kathryn Brain who faced deportation can apparently stay in Scotland.
For the Foreign Office, ironically, that decision should have been a no-brainer
So we are down to 3 and close to the point where 150 thousand (very) odd crusty Tories get to choose not only our prime minister but also our future relationship with the EU. Democracy's great eh?
Anyway, I have to say (for as far as I'm aware the first time) that I agree with Malcolm Rifkind:...
For anyone interested.
I see cameron is resigning as MP. No doubt several consultancy posts and public speaking awaits to give him a nice wee pension. Or he could open a pig farm!
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.
Liam Fox says Brits are fat and lazy. What a stupid and insulting statement. I'm not insulted personally because I am fat and lazy but there's lots of others who aren't.
In his column in today's edition of 'The Times', Philip Collins pinpoints the cause of current anti-Semitism scandal that is engulfing the Labour Party - the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party.
While that view is moot, his deconstruction of Ken Livingstone is devastating.
Wings over Scotland account has been shut down by Twitter after a complaint by an Express journo, saying she'd been abused. I know some on here like/don't like the Rev, however after seeing what's been said, it seems a bit harsh to have shut him down.
Anyone else following the story? #freewings...
I thought it would be nice to have a thread about the positive things that happen in the world for a change.
Post your heartwarming stories in here.
First up - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24170670 :thumbsup:
I'm doing the Glasgow-Edinburgh cycle ride on 11th September. To make sure that i don't wimp out at the first breath of wind, I'm doing it on behalf of the wonderful SCOT-PEP. http://www.scot-pep.org.uk/
If you can, please fire some money over to them at my page.
Without starting a whole "there is a God/there isn't a God" debate (hopefully), Mother Teresa being made into a saint I found really interesting. Ignoring all the debate about here real virtue - which is a topic in itself - the process by which a person becomes a saint is really interesting.
Over there thurs-sun for a stag.. Needing a bar for the football on Saturday.. Any ideas? I mean I'm sure we'll find a bar! Just want one for the football
None of us have ever been so any pubs/clubs chat is welcome
What do you think?
Anyone else have these problems? My old man is from the old brigade who thinks pull yourself together is the answer. Never used to be like this and time in the army hasn't helped. However, I'm not afraid to admit things and feel no stigma in being affected by this.
Just wondering if other...
As much as I don't like it and I voted against it. Are we about to see the British government step in and do what's right for the country. And what does that say for democracy in our country.
I don't agree with the way Muslim women are controlled by their religions "advice" regarding "modesty" and clothing, but I dont understand how the banning of the Burkini is going to smooth racial tension in the south of France.
Sorry, links don't always work from my phone.
Perthshire is the centre of the soft fruit growing industry in the UK for decades!! Get over it!
What a pile of pish.
These elite athletes are given around £28k a year to let them train and practice their hobby full time.
Most of them fail so why should the successful ones be honoured as well as now being able to financially capitalise on what they've achieved on the back of our money?...
You're dicing with death, sort of.
First Duties of a Doctor - Make the care for your patient your first concern
Modern day Junior Doctor - Unhappy with new contract proposals/money
Go on on Strike
As much is I despise the Tories and Jeremy *unt
I cant help but see this as a betrayal of the Hippocratic Oath.
The height of the whole Britpop movement was 20 years ago today. I had just turned 21 and was lucky enough to be there on the Saturday and saw some amazing bands at their peak, including Oasis who I felt were really never the same after Knebworth.
Although as Noel said how do you top two...
The BBC website is today reporting the backlash in America re. the Ryan Lochte affair and the 'bro' culture over there. The reported antics of these 'jocks' (a term they use for very sporty men oddly enough) sounded strangely familiar to the actions of a uni club whose members contained a former PM...
