Pregnant woman who, with three other schoolgirls, went to join Isis in Syria, wants to return to Britain to have her baby.
Am I a hard-nosed barsteward for thinking ‘sod off. You made...
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...
Did this last night and it got me right. It would be interesting to find out how good it is for those not from Edinburgh
The man who launched a thousand parodies.
BBC News - Bruno Ganz, who played Hitler in Downfall, dies aged 77
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 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...
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.
Not sure if this is the right place for this, but i have suffered with a bad knee for years, so much so i have been told by the surgeon i need a new knee.
It will be done in the next 10 weeks.
Has anyone here had one of these done, if so what is it like now?
Can you do more than you could...
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.
This poor girl has been missing for 10 days now, was hoping she may have been found by now
Case has taken a strange twist today, a person of interest has been charged over other offences. I wonder how some of these charges have come to light, since some date back to 2017
On one of the Appleton threads there was a mention that our possible manager to be left Oxford to join Leicester City as "Ass Man". Someone suggested that this would be a good job for "Ross Thomson MP".
I didn't know what this was about, so a quick google search revealed that he has been...
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...
Or when you're playing bet365 bingo?
Or booking an hotel room?
'kin adverts do my head in.
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................
Indian restaurants in Edinburgh
Not living in Edina any more my finger is not on the pulse of favourite Indian restaurants.
My mate is in town for the weekend and is looking for recommendations.
He’s staying central so nothing too far out of the centre.
Just watched him play live on Soccer A.M with a wee band that takes me back to my youth, The Specials:not worth Great guitarist and doesn’t half get around. Saw him play with both OCS and Paul Weller recently, he even gets his laddie out on stage for a wee solo effort. How does he find the time...
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'm not going to explain what they are/were, it can be an oldies secret, but are they a thing of the past?
If so, why have they disappeared?
Traffic too busy? People too mean? Kids too rich? All of the above?
Considering the mainstream narrative seems to be "EU bad for UK, UK good for Scotland". It would be interesting to see some analysis on just how many EU policies have been forced on the UK Government against it's will in comparison to how many policies have been forced on the Scottish Government...
Orkney has taken the top spot in an annual survey ranking the best place to live in the UK. I've only spent one week in the summer in Orkney when I was a teenager, apart from a brief work trip to Kirkwall. You wouldn't go there for the weather, but I would agree it's a great place to visit though...
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
Now she's not even sure an independent Scotland will join the EU :rolleyes:
The General Election is not about independence says Nicola
Looking for some advice on what's the best thing to do about renewing my passport.
The 2 options are renew now, or wait til after we leave and get one then.
Are there any advantages of renewing now? Will we be obliged to update our passports, in say 5 years, or will it run for the full 10...
Did anyone else watch that Channel 4 documentary last night?
Utter ****in' madness from where else but America, Ohio to be precise, where they are starting to put this idea into practice.
Given the events over the past couple of weeks and the rumours and speculation around what has been happening at the club I thought it was interesting that the subject of bullying in the workplace has been raised in some quarters. We don't know if what went on at Hibs amounted to bullying, but if...
We complain here when there’s massive disruption due to heavy snow but, for God’s sake they’re talking about Armageddon after up to 20cms of snow. :rolleyes:
Some really cheap flights to Europe going for departure on Brexit day 29th March!
Must say, there are risks butI’m tempted.
About to go down for a long time it would seem.
Horrible allegations (at this stage) with the apparent evidence very much against him.
As someone very apathetic to politics who finds it hard to distinguish between any of the parties, what would you (of whatever political persuasion) do to win me round and potentially gain my vote?
I view the vast majority of politicians as self serving, who come from the same handful of schools...
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.
First up - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24170670 :thumbsup:
I'm watching Swan Lake by accident and it's fabulous.
The athleticism of the dancers is incredible, and of course, the music is superb.
I know its all speculative, but does anyone involved in the property business have any inclinations of whether the various outcomes will affect prices? I bought my previous place just before prices bombed last time, so wouldn't like to be caught out again.
I'm curious as to the setup of your GP surgeries, as I'm on the verge of making a formal complaint to our regional health board about ours (I don't expect that action will change what I'm complaining about per se, but I'd like my concerns on record).
Our GP has gone to a triage and 'on the day...

Following on from a post I made in the Labour Party thread, here's a good explanation of the system which rules our lives; a system which, we are told, is the meaning of our lives, yet is never discussed and never explained. Instead there is a tacist and unquestioning attitude that this money...
This isn't the first time this has happened, I'm sure the same thing happened during Obama's presidency … but my post isn't about the rights or wrongs of what has caused the shutdown.
What I cant believe is that any modern day country would allow a state of affairs where people ( 800,000 of them...
