    Shareholders will begin receiving details of the club's share offer through the post later today. The offer is strictly regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and we don't want you, or hibs.net, getting into trouble! This is as a result of legislation brought in during 2014....

  2. How many Scottish natiionalists will vote to leave Europe in a referendum?

    The repatriation of powers is a central plank of Scottish nationalism. There is an opportunity to further increase local power and decision-making if the UK votes to leave the EU. Is it not therefore logical that nationalists should vote for independence from the EU as well as from...

    Leaving aside any "concessions" which Cameron may or may not get from his negotiations, what are your thoughts on the UK's membership of the EU? I won't bother offering a poll as it's too early, but a discussion on the merits of staying/going might be interesting. For my part, up till now...
