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.
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.
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...

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...
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.

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...

I'm a huge Hip Hop fan but when singing lyrics I say "homie" instead.
What are peoples thoughts on this?
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...

We're here on holiday in Shanghai visiting our oldest son who's been out here since September.

Just finished watching this 6 part series. Truly shocking events. One of the best dramatisations I've seen so if you can get a hold of it do so.

He must have thought it was a good idea at the time!
