This board was initially set up with the intention of it being a forum for "serious discussion"....politics...and erm....world & current affairs...that kind of thing.
From time to time we do end up moving threads over to the Dug Out, so if we do, then don't be offended.
I would also remind...
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.
I love reading about this stuff, a pretty horrific story yet with the benefit of the full picture you can read it with something resembling a smile on your face!
I'm sure I also read a story recently about an American guy that played basketball for...
Can't believe this news today after watching his Hall of Fame speech the other day.
Hi Guys, just to pull everyone away from the misery on the board at the moment I'm hoping to get some discussion on this.
I'm currently researching the links between Italian Politics, Ultras and Football. I find it interesting that there is a strong link in Italy and many other foreign clubs. It...
Anyone know when they're supposed to start running to the airport?
From York Place?
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...
Have been asked to post this up as a favour to someone on a different forum would appreciate it if anyone could take a min to do this survey.
I've just had a Whatsapp convo and subsequently booked a weekend break for a Real Madrid football player, who is a client that my boss usually deals with but the bugger went on holiday for 2 weeks so it fell into my lap.
Anyway, got me thinking, me is the most famous person you've ever...
Surprised to see no thread on this?
So, WTF has happened here?
I'm really not sure what to think at this stage but it's now looking like a definite hijack.
anyone heard or seen this band? they're from Edinburgh and have had a bit of history. Multiple members, move to London, and the singer done time for attacking the bass player! seemingly now back in Edinburgh. my mate turned me onto them and they're pretty good.
Fascinating to see the way the prosecutor is taking Oscar to bits. His tears at the start of the week just sound like self pity now, and he seems to refuse to accept responsibility for anything.
I have a bit of a problem I could do with some advice on. It's no secret that my GP and I haven't got on too well over the past year but last night I had a really bad stomach and rash on my face so I called NHS 24.
While on the phone, the nurse ran through the medication that I'm...
If you're at a loose end on Thursday, Friday or Saturday night (and afternoon matinee) this week you might be interested in this.
In memory of her mother who died a few years ago, my wife is putting on a show called 'Let's Face The Music And Dance' in aid of Leukemia Care at the Church Hill...
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:
Edinburgh City Council are discussing naming the area in front of the Usher Hall MacRae square after sir George. What's people's thoughts, personally I think Armistice Square would be more apt than honouring a man that led so many to their slaughter.
But really, I think any WW1 commemoration is...
I see that Mr. Romaonv has been arrested under the international warrant issued against him by Russian police.
This I find quite interesting in the current political climate as it isnt like the Russians to arrest "their own" (he is Russian born) and hand them over to other states as seems likely...
Really sad to hear the news that my political hero passed away overnight. I was lucky enough to talk to him after a speech in Newcastle and the kindness and warmth of the man was just tangible. His speech to the Commons on the iraq war vote still brings a tear to my eye (sadly absent from...
Anyone see the C4 documentary? UKIP on course to do very well in the European elections. Is this the beginning of a UKIP breakthrough nationally?
I reckon they'll call a lot of the shots in the 2015 UK election.
Quite a sympathetic portrayal it must be said.

Could folks please take a few minutes to check out these links and then seriously...
Just heard about the little girl in liberation. Heart goes out to you little one, seriously shocking news. Condolences to the family ⭐️
Horrendous thing to happen. I thought things like this are the reason schools are surveyed etc?
Has anyone ordered any of the personalised items and actually got them? A 6 month saga trying to get one of their "Dad, Fan, Legend" mugs has ended with disappointment and hopefully a refund. I mean how hard can it be? I made my own Hibs Crest Mug eventually on VistaPrint and got it within a...
Is anyone else regularly entertained by this loons writings in the comments section on The Scotsman web site?

There's a helicopter flying overhead my house in the south if Edinburgh just now. There was also one last night.
anyone know what's going on? I'm just being nosey!
On the way back from a day out in Carlisle.
A fair bit of Dalry Road is taped off, theres a bus stop and a motor bike strewn across Dalry Road.
I can only fear the worst.
I realise that some people may not want to disclose on here where they work or what they actually do but for those that can without identifying where they work, what perks or benefits if any, do you get through your employment that you consider to be of real value to you?
Anyone else watching this? I'm really enjoying this, it's fascinating!
Watching the egg chasing from Twickers. Lots of shots of chinless wonders looking wealthy and singing Sweet Low. Brian Moore says 'listen to that! Who says middle class people can't be passionate? :hilarious
Maybe thats what we need at ER. More Fettes and Heriots old boys. Its the future. More...
Wowsers batman. Seriously?!?
Ok, now I've read into it a bit more, its not conjoined twins :greengrin. Irvine you auld bald headed tease.
Owing to a generous Amazon voucher for my birthday, I find myself in a position to update my Kindle somewhat.
I've no idea where to start though. I like non-fiction, particularly recent military history, (auto) biographies of people who have actually achieved something and comedy, when done...
Looks like the perv is back playing for Arniston Rangers.:confused:
Sorry, should have said it was Craig Thompson.
In 1938, Nazi Germany invaded the Sudetenland, a part of the old Czechoslovakia, because a minority of ethnic Germans lived there. Nazi Germany then went on to invade the whole of Czechoslovakia, this led to World War 2. 76 years later, Russia are invading Crimea, a part of Ukraine, 'because of the...
Anyone either A) believe in them or B) had any first hand experience?
Having a few...shall we say... odd occurances in the household, stuff that I can't logically explain, but I have never believed in any of this spiritual stuff, I always though there was a logical explanation for everything,...
As well as working for the National Council for Civil Liberties in the late 70's, I wonder if Harriet Harman ever met Thatcher...
The amount of dog crap on our pavements is significantly less than it used to be, thank goodness.
I remember regularly traipsing through the house as a laddie, only to find I'd dragged some Alsatian's excrement with me on the sole of my shoe.
Thankfully as I said, that happens a lot less...
Claims political asylum from a country with a shocking human rights and free speech record....
Brave freedom fighter or hypocritical, narcissistic, lying sex-pest?
I am lucky enough to have acquired an original piece of artwork.
It's the one and only print ... If you know what I mean.
It's A0 size!
Ideally I'd like it on a block thingy but so far cost, big £200s, is silly money as far as I'm concerned.
Any dotnetters who are willing to consider...
It's never ending.
Sometimes it feels like I'm the only person who has never sexually assaulted someone. :bitchy:
