Turned down transgender role because of pressure from LGBTQ groups.
Jeez, what next? Let's object to Robert Newton playing Long John Silver because he never really lost a leg. :rolleyes:
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................
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...
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 wasn't sure whether to post this here or the dug out. I know there are a lot of cooks and food lovers on Hibs.net so wondered if there were any tips we could share? I'm sure we all do something we think is unique with what we cook but tips can be really useful. It could be to add flavour, reduce...
A lot of debate now about this and Canada has passed a law that makes recreational use legal.
Not sure myself, could it lead to harder drug use?
But if I was walking home on my own at 2am I would rather cross paths with a group of stoners than a group of drunks.
From the whisky threads that appear on here from time to time the fondness many of us have for Islays famous export is clear.
Having visited the island a few times I'm always amazed at how one of the most remarkable stories of WWI is little known beyond the shores of Islay, those of you who have...
Has anybody claimed this?
Put my claim in 6 weeks ago but still to hear from airline. What i'm wondering is if they will try and say it's time barred as 5 years is up next week?
A mate of mines is in the process of separating from his wife.
There's lots of advice available via Solicitors etc, but that can be very expensive, so I'm hoping my fellow .netters will be the usual source of all knowledge and can answer a few questions :-)
My mate got married around 3 years...
Despite having visited most Scottish islands, I've never quite made it out to the Western Isles, despite having had it in mind for ever. I have the chance of a few days off next week and if the weather stays settled might go for it. I'm thinking maybe break us in gently by just going to either...
See there is a relatively new peado hunting group in Scotland (the first one in Scotland I think), Wolfpack Hunters.
For those who don't know, basically these groups set up fake accounts online, pretending to be underage kids and catching online groomers. They film the stings when they go and...
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...
We had a thread a while back about a poster complaining about being in a pub gaarden and a smoker sitting next to them and lighting up. Although they had a valid point there is always the chance that the people that want to run (or should that be ruin) our lives to the way they would want others...
Been struggling with my sexuality for some years and now I've met someone I really like. Any .netters with experience of coming out or considering it? Not an easy thing to talk about I know but just wondered how folk would react to me being bisexual?
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.

Got married on Saturday, my best man contacted the club and I got an amazing personal note during his speech from Sir David Gray - absolutely made my day.
Wee Nicky doesnt know if she's coming or going just now .
We need a referendum because were being dragged out of the EU #castironmandate

The General Election is not about independence says Nicola
I've been trying to find out what's the highest recorded temperature in Edinburgh but I'm not having much success.
Is there any way for me to find this out?
The same information about York would be good too.
The judge saves a Kirkcaldy 'Madam' from going to jail with this somewhat odd statement ....
"You are however a first offender and I also have to consider the often expressed directions that judges are given that all steps should be taken to avoid the imprisonment of women if it's not absolutely...
Does he belong in jail or are his civil liberties being breached?
Please take a wee bit of time to find out about this campaign. And if you feel strongly enough about it send an email to the appropriate people.
This is the grave in Dean Cemetery of the bloke from the front of the Camp Coffee bottle, Sir Hector MacDonald - the Fighting Mac
In the middle of being restored after a catastrophic fire a few years back, and it's just gone up in flames again!
Fire has spread to several buildings surrounding, including the O2 ABC (which is my favourite gig venue in Glasgow :( ), who's roof appears to have collapsed!
Devastating when it...
Gets published tomorrow. As you would expect, some bits are being leaked and spun already. Twitter is going to be an unreadable nightmare as the zealots on both sides tell you it's a warped fantasy perpetrated by evil anti-English bigots or the greatest thing since sliced milk and honey.
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.
As with most of the U.K. I am fully onboard with gin nowadays.

Iím looking to expand my palette.
Iím a big fan of Ophir (slight spiced peppery taste).
Remarkable gorilla dies.
Highly articulate rap dude Akela is highlighting that the murder rate in Scotland is higher than London but the tabloids (and Trump) are getting all aerated only about London stabbings. He says Wales is higher too but can't find the stats on that.
Anyone would think that the tabloids have...
It's international fact checking day! And to celebrate, fact checking site the ferret has collated their results from the past year.
By comparison, the SNP (Scot Labour results were broadly similar).

I see Kendrick Lamar invited a white woman on stage to perform and now there's a huge debate about white people using the "n" word.
I'm a huge Hip Hop fan but when singing lyrics I say "homie" instead.
What are peoples thoughts on this?

Thought the Iraeli butchers deserved a mention gunning down Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border, 60 dead and thousands injured.
The population is so docile.
We're here on holiday in Shanghai visiting our oldest son who's been out here since September.
The city itself is bustling to say the least, but the one thing that stands out like a sore thumb is that the population are so conforming, lacking emotion.
The new editor of the Mail is pro-EU and a staunch remainer.
Will we see a change in editorial policy in the coming months?
I would think it very likely.
New Daily Mail editor to be Geordie Greig
Why has this story appeared?
It's a total non-story, but it seems to me that it's designed to make sure that as many euro-sceptics as possible don't vote Labour.
