Anyone picked up a copy today?
A decent addition to the daily newspaper scene?
I'm a lifelong Labour voter, but, having heard the crap coming out of the Tories this week, I am seriously considering voting 'Yes' in the referendum if that is going to be the future.
I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts.
Hi guys. I imagine this has been done to death but I am only starting to come to knowledge of this.
What is everyone's take on it?
So far I have gathered that like everywhere else In the world, Britain went in around the 1600's said this is ours and Ireland were having none of it.
Following on from some of the discussion in the Ched Evans thread, (and the contention that 'human nature'=selfish self-interest) are we actually 'nicer' than we give ourselves credit for?
Anyone have a view has to who is likely to leave the Scottish Government and who is likely to be promoted? Will the winner of the SNP Deputy Leadership contest automatically become Deputy First Minister?
I think Keith Brown is pretty effective and he looks a prospect - not just because he's a...
The whole situation going on in Ukraine makes me very nervous. And with all the back and forth rhetoric between Russia and the west it's like The cold war all over again.
I've not decided where i stand on Ukraine and Putin because i've not really looked in to it enough, but it's getting...
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...
I don't think I've ever seen an episode of The Cosby Show, but everybody knows who Bill Cosby is: comedian, wholesome all American sitcom star, role model for black America - and serial rapist? We've had our celebrity scandals in recent years in the UK, and now this. Cosby is accused of numerous...
Apologies if this has been discussed in the other political threads but I can't be bothered trawling them all.
How genuine a 'threat' are UKIP in Scotland?

A lot being said about this guys and his possible return to football.
If he was coming to Hibs - what would your thoughts be on this?
Right now if he was going to bang in the goals taking into account our poor record up front i'd take him.
I went to see 'Fury' last night at the cinemna, fantastic film based around a tank crew in the 2nd World War. Watching the film got me thinking, there has been some very good and some very bad films about war over the years but which one comes closest to portraying what it was actually like for...
Beaujolais Nouveau Day!!!! Today. ( for those who were around in the 80s)
Hoping someone can help me here.
A client has some cash. He isn't, and never has been, a taxi driver.
Is he allowed to buy a taxi, not drive it, but get drivers in to operate it? If he is, does he need a licence?
Presumably, he also needs to buy the plate?
Any help would be appreciated.
Seriously just what the hell is going there?
A group of Christians forced to take refuge half way up a mountain as fundementalist nutters rampage through their city.
Did Blair and Bush not heed any of the numerous warnings about the sectarian can of worms they would open when they invaded? I...
Thank god that evil little **** will never see the light of day again.
I was amazed to find that he was known to the police at the time of the murder. Not only that but he hung about Port Seton and must surely have been on the plods radar down there.
How come nobody thought to question him at...
When I travel to far flung shores and engage in conversation with a local I always ask 'What is the hidden gem in xx xx that tourists never uncover.
Sam Wo's, China Town, San Francisco will be in my heart for ever as will the SF brewing company.
I was asked the same question by a South...
Love the idea of the cabbage & ribs.
Hibs class......:top marks
Ok, it appears that it was a bit of a bumpy landing but thinking about the science behind this, it's a phenomenal event. To think it's barely a century since we've been flying and now we're landing unmanned probes on ice...
Nurse in Spain contracts Ebola after treating patient. Is this the modern day plague?
25 years ago today the wall came down. I WAS THERE THAT NIGHT (just sayin likes). It was amazing!

Her body was found in a river near her house, devastating news and i can't even imagine what her family are going through.
The main suspect is a convicted murderer from Latvia that has been allowed into Britain to potentially commit this disgusting crime.
As it says on the tin.
Who's next? Jim Murphy? Gordon Brown? Has to be a big gun as the last 2 incumbents have been total disasters.
It's what I want to see and I can see it happening. Whats my fellow hibees thoughts. Just for the record I've moved on and accepted the result of the referendum.
Inspired by the nascent rammy that's simmering on the highlights thread on the main forum......
As a teen growing up in the Thatcher years, I loved the BBC. It upset the Tories (for reasons real and imagined) which made it a force for good in my eyes then. Looking back, though, this is...
I have a handfull of CD's which are DRM protected so wont play on my phone. As there are only a few I don't want to buy removal software if I can help it and was hoping someone out there would know of a free (not trial which only sorts out the first 60 seconds) version. Any thoughts.
Just wanted to know what everyone's thoughts were on this? Both the good and the bad.
Personally I can't see too many downsides and it will certainly benefit me personally if I ever do buy a property.

Given some of the horror grammar on this site, thought it would be interesting for some to try this out. :greengrin
What a farce this is. Either we have to pay it coz thems the rules we signed up to or we don't coz thems not the rules. Either way Cameron is looking a bit of a numpty.
Great to see so much live or recorded live coverage of Scottish Football on BBC Alba. But I wonder just what % of those tuning in actually speak Gaelic. I would imagine for the football it will be a tiny minority. Possibly still better option that listening to usual BBC commentators slavering on.
Jack Bruce, legendary bassist of Cream has died of liver disease. A great rock and blues musician and a Glasgow man.
Great news music fans.
The best gig I ever experienced was Mouth Music at La Belle Angele.
