  3. Gordon Brown

    Does anybody actually like this man? The latest quote from his bazaar memoirs accuses Salmond of being 'unhelpful' after the Glasgow airport terrorist attack. This from a man who was instrumental in the WMD war that, as we know, went a long way in ensuring peaceful co-habilitation. :rolleyes: It...

    A charity fears a British-Iranian woman held in Iran could have her prison sentence doubled following remarks made by the foreign secretary. Boris Johnson told a Commons committee Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was "training journalists" when she was arrested at Tehran Airport in 2016. The Thomson...

  5. Edinburgh Airport pick-up/drop-off

    I believe the minimum charge for drop-off is £1 for up to five minutes and £3.90 for pick-up for up to 15 minutes. I believe also that there are separate areas for each. Whatís to stop you going to the drop-off area and picking someone up for a couple of minutes and just paying £1. Bit of a con is...

  9. Alcohol

    Alcohol minimum price will be introduced in Scotland. Waste of time and unfair on the Scots. The goal is to cut down alcoholic illness but there’s not a hope in hell of that succeeding by bumping up the price. All we’ll end up with is poorer alcoholics.

  24. Votes at 16

    Iíve gone on about this before. Dropping the voting age to 16 is policy for every party but the DUP and the Tories. Now thereís a vote and the old woman who is squatting in number 10 is blocking its progress. After they screw up Brexit the Conservativeís truly are toast for a generation.
