And we are off and running. :greengrin
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...
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...
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...
McGuinness to resign as Deputy First Minister this evening
Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness is to resign this evening as Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister.
He'll stand down at 5 o'clock this evening, unless the first minister Arlene Foster agrees to stand aside for a temporary inquiry into...
Reports of 2 being shot in entrance to Commons, gunman shot, someone seen with a knife, car also been crashed near the building.
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...
The stretch is appearing in the evenings and Im now planning my festivals for the year.
First one up for me is Supersonic festival being held in the Digneth Area of Birmingham https://supersonicfestival.com I've been once before and really enjoyed it. Like the last time I only new one of two...
Good innings, great musician.
I thought this might be of interest to .netters.
I'm decorating just now and stripped wallpaper down to the plaster and I came across some info written on the wall from 1969.
Car Tax was £25
Concorde had just finished test flights
Harold Wilson was PM
3 American Astronauts had orbited...
Twitter chat is that Tory party chairman and chief whips have net and looking at May 4.
Remarkably, Labour would support the move making it possible to get out of the fixed term.
It also could explain why Osbourne hasn't resigned as an MP yet.
It could just be a rumour, but May may say...
I guess it's not especially surprising that nobody has raised Scottish Labour's "federalism" plan on here and that's probably a good indicator of the weight attached to it by the Scottish public but just to check I'm not getting this wrong, they *really* are proposing to go into a new referendum...
That's how you deal with an ******** you have to deal with. cf. the May cringeathon.
Yes or no?
Personally I think its an outdated nonsence that we have these unelected people that have the highest stake in society for no reason other than the fact they were lucky enough to be born into it.
I'm doing a project in Geography about the decline of Princes Street and I wanted to include a few names of the big shops that were around before the regeneration of Princes Street in the 60's but theres pretty much nothing online so I was wondering if anyone on here can name any of the shops minus...
How will you vote and has it changed from last time?
Brexit will be a huge incentive for people to vote for Independence this time, but there are still some very difficult hurdles for the Yes camp to overcome.
I do hope that sensible, and credible, answers are given to important issues such as currency, the deficit and open borders.
First nomination this year:
What a speech in front of Donald Trump.
Can we use this thread to place links to articles that appear to expose twisted or false facts tossed out by the Media. Anything that enlightens us on the vast amount of BS out there. I stress that this is for both sides of the arguments (i.e. Brexit and Indyref2).
Each of us has our own opinions...
Any thoughts on todays "historic" decision?
00:30 Bridge closed to high sided vehicles.
02:00 Lorry overturns on bridge.
Bridge them closed until further notice because twats lorry is mangled in the grille between the lanes.
Enjoy the commute.
Reading in the comments to section in today's evening news article about proposed sdl march/gathering and also a March celebrating a sikh festival, it raises the question, in my mind anyway, what is the difference between patriotism, racism, and cultural preservation?
This is baffling. Rangers weren't relegated, they ceased to be did they not? Surely that was all Corals needed to say?
Maybe it was a hot potato and the bad press if they did claim that would have lost them a lot of TRFC punters.
Any winners today for you?
I had a couple of winners in Special Tiara and Cause of Causes :thumbsup:
She was sued by Jack Monroe and she lost. Monroe wins £24000, but Hopkins' also has to pay Montoe's legal costs.
I'm not sure which legal firm she used, but they're costing Hopkins £300k. On top of that there will be Hopkins' own legal fees.
I considered posting this in the good news stories...
What effect do you think a Yes vote in any second referendum would have upon the constitutional position of the rest of the UK? I'm thinking specifically of Northern Ireland here. The demographics are changing in the six counties, and it looks only a matter of time before there is a nationalist...
I am off to Benidorm for my brothers stag next week. 28 of us ffs, logistical nightmare.
I've never been, anyone recommend any do's and do nots? Places to go, places to avoid.
Red Lion and Jailhouse have been identified as holes to avoid.
Any other Hibees out there? I'll be in my...
Just been to an exhibition on caravans and mobile homes in the hope of finally being able to decide what to get. The plan is after retiring to travel over extended periods with the Mrs testing out Europe's golf courses.
Anybody any experience with both and what are in your views the pros and...
Anyone ever had their car remapped. I'm considering getting it done but my car is under manufacturers warranty, wondering if it I a risk.
Anyone here got teenage kids? My boy's hit his teens and is a nightmare at the moment, very aggressive, very angry/moody and very hard to get along with.
We've generally had a really good relationship up until the last few months where I've seen a big change in how he treats me and...
Trying to sue the lottery for running her life with gambling. Here's a solution give the remainder of your money to Hibs. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/britains-youngest-euromillions-winner-wants-9802119.amp?client=safari
Ms Chapple, of Speers Road, Leicester, admitted a charge of opening a vehicle door so as to injure or endanger another person.
The "other person", a cyclist, died.
What am I missing?
By elections at Stoke and Copeland coming up.
The last time the sitting government won a mid term by election was in 1982 when the Falkland war was at its height, and with the Tories in such disarray over the NHS and Brexit, both should shoo ins for Labour.
Obviously someone's been feeding...
I thought it would be nice to have a thread about the positive things that happen in the world for a change.
