It's that time again folks (again).
Possibly because I'm in York, this issue has passed me by, but I have noticed arguments starting to appear on my Twitter feed (the operation of which I don't fully understand).
Would someone explain this issue for me, in as non-partisan terms as possible, please. That probably excludes Ronaldo 😁
And we are off and running. :greengrin
I'm not on the Holy Ground often but as I sit here bored waiting for no.3 child to come out the cinema, I am wondering who on here votes Tory? There must be some of you? It can't only be Brian Monteith 😉. Reasons why appreciated also.
Personally I vote SNP at Scottish and UK elections at present...
Just wondering what everyone's religion is and what the statistics are
I thought it was time "The Law Is An Ass" deserved a thread of it's own.
Here's a starter......

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...
Used to be libertarian now they seem to be right wing anti islamic. Seem to be turning into the BNP.
May to make a statement soon.
What else could it be?
All those headlines warning of several feet of snow.
This is the RSPB Loch Garten Osprey's nest this morning
Just been having a discussion my wife and her pals, on which is the best- Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. Although the Walking Dead is an excellent series, I prefer Game of Thrones. Thoughts?
My pal Tony who plays pipes and is a very bright guy (the two aren't mutually exclusive) finished a contract playing pipes at a circus/theme park in China a couple of weeks ago then went to visit a pal who works with refugees in Lebanon. His initial plan was to spend 2-3 weeks there then head back...
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...
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...
Sadly another hibee, renowned worldwide in piping circles, has left us.
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.

This was just mental!! How can they get away with that!!
Scottish schools drop in world rankings
Rather than posturing for Indy round 2, can you please just do your job and address the increasingly glaring deficiencies of our education system. This is happening on your watch and you have absolutely no excuses.
All the best
'"We have fed this back to our private sector partners and have agreed that charges will remain at the current level for this financial year."
That's remain at £7 a day, not the rise to £15 a day that they really wanted. Such...
Thankfully even the Sun newspaper have finally realised what a sad sack of a man he is, and suspended him. His latest is calling Ross Barclay a gorilla, after his nightclub fight.
So, 2.3b barrels, they say.
What do we do?
1. Keep it in the ground, and save the planet.
2. Exploit the hell out of it.
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...
Somebody's just driven a large truck into a crowd outside a large department store in central Stockholm, 3 killed (so far). Could be another terrorist incident, seemingly shots fired.
Watched Panorama last night on the benefits cap.
Found it quite disturbing the lady who kept talking about getting 'her money' back first and her kids back second. She clearly had more going on than the cameras showed.
Interestsd what fols here think of it - to me it highlighted the...
Reports of 2 being shot in entrance to Commons, gunman shot, someone seen with a knife, car also been crashed near the building.
Just when you things could not get any worse the Tory right claiming May would go to war over the sovereignty of Gibraltar.
A former Scotland international footballer and his ex-teammate have been ruled to be rapists and ordered to pay £100,000 damages despite never facing a criminal trial.

Are these the bravest protesters in Europe?
These brave folk are risking being tortured in Russia's inhumane prison regime because of their stand against their corrupt government. God bless them as they're incredibly courageous.
Pleaded guilty today for driving his car after his license was taken off him.
What an absolute ****er of a man.
Well, it's almost here!!
The unbelievable is about to happen tomorrow.
I wonder how it's all going to pan out.
Whatever happens, it's going to be a roller coaster. Hold on................

Hi has anyone visited Palestine? I'm going over with Palestine Solidarity Campaign in March. Obviously I know a lot of the suffering that the illegal occupation has caused but has anyone got any first hand knowledge?
Anybody else think that RBS are using the online banking as a convenient excuse?
They closed a branch near me saying that walk-in customers were down 11%.
What about the rest? Did someone at a management meeting ask, "How can...
I notice ex North Lanarkshire MP Helen Liddell looks like she was named after a club legend.
She was born Helen Lawrie Reilly in North Lanarkshire in 1950.
Just a coincidence or did Hibs have such a good team in the late 40's early 50's that they had supporters far and wide? (there seemed to...
