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...
It sounds like this one will be confirmed tomorrow, any guesses what the ticket prices might start at. Me and my mate really fancy it.
Looks like we lost another one!!
Lineker. Fair play to the annoying, anodyne, smug twat. I like him now.
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...
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 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.

Caught a snippet of the news this morning. Am I right in saying that Israeli agents boarded the ship of a foreign power in International waters today, and then started a gun fight?
That can't be right can it?
Anyone watched this programme its on i player at present Found it very thougt provoking Some interesting Trump footage ,but its tracing of the Middle East back to Kissenger and Asad and thete different stances is fascinating n terms of thePaestinian issue and the rise and role of the suicide...
What are your thoughts on this? This guy carried out mercy killings on fatally wounded Iraq troops.
Evans has just been cleared of the rape charge from back in 2012.
For anyone interested.
Don't like Andrew Neil one iota.
Hitting a poor defenceless man.
:take that :dead:
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...
Jean Alexander has passed away :( shame, they can chat about that 'Muriel' on the wall again
Jean Alexander, who played Coronation Street's Hilda Ogden and Auntie Wainwright in Last of the Summer Wine, has died aged 90.
It’s also not clear if Heathrow’s generosity is linked to the SNP’s decision to back the airport’s third runway bid. :faf:
Well? What does everyone think? My top 3 would be:
East Lothian Courier is reporting that 2 youngsters were chased at Musselburgh race course yesterday, and they also mention similar incidents in Tranent. I have a 5 yr old, and I live in Musselburgh, so I've warned him and his mum that these idiots are about, and not to be scared. This prank...
Has won his appeal but faces a new trial. Not exactly sure how that works given (IIRC) he had served his time for the original conviction: -
That was supposed to say "contemplate"!
In March, I paid around £4500 for 2 business class flights from Sydney to Edinburgh with Qatar airways. (We had booked with BA using Avios for the outward journey, but there were no return flights available.)
Due to a serious family illness, I have now...
Seems like the media have again taken up wall to wall coverage of not only the on-going situation in Aleppo but also the refugee crisis. We've had weeks/months of minimum coverage on this despite the continuing crisis but now it seems it's become the top story again. Why are the media again taking...
Does anyone have experience of claiming fiscal witness expenses? Is there a limit re your wages and also childcare?
I've had a Google and it's unclear.
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...
Interesting times as the US (and naturally by extension, the U.K.) are drawn into a difficult face-off with Russia in Syria.
To his credit, the comment about protesting outside embassies to one side, Boris Johnson reacted well about the no fly zone idea - how on earth would that work, without...
Some poor turn outs, but the SNP hold 4 and gain 1 on the night.
In general, I find most of the wacky types who sit in basements and claim that 9/11 was all a Bush masterplan to invade Afghanistan/Iraq (or whatever other spurious claims they make) to be risible as for - from what I've seen and heard - all the evidence for the 2 main towers points to it being...
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.
James Mcleavy on Radio 4.
However, surely in the Victorian era Leith was not in the City of Edinburgh. Is that not right?
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.
UKIP leadership candidate Steve Woolfe ended up in hospital after a fight with another UKIP politician. These thugs have been allowed to influence politics in this country and it's a sad state of affairs.
Honestly can't wrap my head around how these people think:
Is it just me or is Excel utterly **** in iOS?
Is there an alternative that actually works with macros and range formulae - or even the basics like pick lists?
If not there's a massive gap in the market!!
Nurse in Spain contracts Ebola after treating patient. Is this the modern day plague?
Serious financial issues at Women for Independence. Guardian alleging that Natalie McGarry MP is under the spotlight
Is that them down to 54?
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.
It seems Neil, the tribune of the left(Jimmy Johnstone was more left wing than him), has been trumpeting the Daily express again.
Labour spin and lies found out again.
Scottish boxer Mike Towell passes away after a fight in Glasgow.
Don't know much about the boxer himself or the incident but are there questions to be answered, procedures that can be changed or is this just one of these things and a risk all...
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.
