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...
Went up tonight. Number of people signing so far is quite high.
Just started watching the documentary on Netflix.
Such a sad but interesting story. I hope we find out the truth of what happened one day.
FWIW, I think the parents know a lot more than they make out to believe.
Utterly horrific news from Christchurch this morning.
40 people dead, as 4 (possibly more) people storm 2 mosques and open fire. Four in custody, but more may still be at large.
Cars were being stopped as they had devices attached to them too.
The 16 year old who abducted, raped and killed the 4 year old wee lassie in Brute has been named.
Little ******* deserves to be named IMO, absolutely sickening crime. Hope his life is a living hell in jail.
Just watching this mental story on Sky News. A tattoo shop owner in England has been jailed for splitting a tongue, removing a nipple and taking off someone's ear. This was all paid for and requested by his customers
This looks like it will a fascinating watch when it airs tonight on Netflix.
For anyone unfamiliar with the case, this interview with one of the survivors, Stephen Travers, will give...
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 don't think I've phrased my question very well, but it stems from the fact that some companies are stockpiling medicines and foodstuffs.
There's already a thread to debate the pros and cons of Brexit, so I'd encourage people to avoid that on here, but I'm wondering if you've taken any steps or...
So yet again, another debate appears about football clubs holding or not holding a minute's silence after particular world events.
Putting aside the specific case of the horrific events in New Zealand, it saddens me to see this sort of thing...
Leaving aside the whole question of how so many know or understand so little about Ireland (see, for example, Andrew 'As an Englishman I'm entitled to an Irish passport' Bridgen)...
The laddie Eustice who resigned yesterday said that postponing the Brexit date would mean that the EU would...
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...
According to AFP news agency, Mr Netanyahu later brought up the issue at a cabinet meeting. He called Israel a "Jewish, democratic state" with equal rights, but the "nation state not of all its citizens but only of the Jewish people". -...
The man who launched a thousand parodies.
BBC News - Bruno Ganz, who played Hitler in Downfall, dies aged 77
Saw the above story on the bbc. Maybe I’m becoming more conservative (small c) as I get older and less in tune with the “yoof” of today, but I can’t distinguish that top from a bra. It looked an open and shut case to me in that it looked...
I was just wondering what posters' first hand experiences are of trade unions - positive or negative.
I had one bad experience which put me off them, but there's talk of my employer entering a voluntary agreement with one which has led me to reconsider the subject.
I'm not so interested in...
Only one soldier to face trial and it isn’t the Officer in Charge. :confused:

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
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...
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...
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...
About to go down for a long time it would seem.
Horrible allegations (at this stage) with the apparent evidence very much against him.
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.
He passed away last month, but its just been reported
Airwolf was great Saturday afternoon viewing.
suspect device found in Halifax/BOS at West End. Area closed off. (NHC)
later regrets it, decides to call it rape.
The Humpty Dumpty theory of language - that a word can mean anything you want it to mean.
Scotland is set to become home to the first stock exchange in the world to require joining companies to prove they are having a positive social impact on a global scale and in their local communities.
Found dead at age 49. Loved the Prodigy back in the 90s. Fat of the Land a cracking album.
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...
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...
Saying that he has crossed the line too many times, despite repeated warnings. What say you?
Big fire currently up Arthur’s Seat
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.
What an idiot. Apparently could face up to 3 years in jail. Folk were rightly on his side to begin with, but imagine there will be a huge backlash from the gay and black communtiy for trying this stunt.
Is there anywhere that doesn't show rugby in Edinburgh?
Trying to find somewhere to go and watch the scores on Saturday and really can't be bothered mixing with rugby fans.
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...
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.
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
I know there's a thread on Brexit already but can't be bothered trawling through it. Anyhow, my question is: Has anyone booked a European holiday or flights for summer? If so, any idea what happens if there is a no deal? Is it true that most insurance companies won't be paying out if you lose...
