I thought it was time "The Law Is An Ass" deserved a thread of it's own.
Here's a starter......
"A heartbroken family will be removed from their Highland home, put in taxis bound for an airport and...
They used to be our kid's role models, now they're moving into politics. Thoughts???????
Sorry to post a link to the DR but, apparently there's chaos at Glasgow airport due to the new drop off charge.
Best you know about it if you're heading that way with someone trying to catch a flight.
Well, tomorrow! Worth a read.
Possibly because I'm in York, this issue has passed me by, but I have noticed arguments starting to appear on my Twitter feed (the operation of which I don't fully understand).
Would someone explain this issue for me, in as non-partisan terms as possible, please. That probably excludes Ronaldo 😁
Reports of 2 being shot in entrance to Commons, gunman shot, someone seen with a knife, car also been crashed near the building.
All those headlines warning of several feet of snow.
This is the RSPB Loch Garten Osprey's nest this morning
Just been having a discussion my wife and her pals, on which is the best- Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. Although the Walking Dead is an excellent series, I prefer Game of Thrones. Thoughts?
My pal Tony who plays pipes and is a very bright guy (the two aren't mutually exclusive) finished a contract playing pipes at a circus/theme park in China a couple of weeks ago then went to visit a pal who works with refugees in Lebanon. His initial plan was to spend 2-3 weeks there then head back...
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...
Sadly another hibee, renowned worldwide in piping circles, has left us.
"Thou shalt not" .... yet again.
Do you still think you live in a free society?
This was just mental!! How can they get away with that!!
'"We have fed this back to our private sector partners and have agreed that charges will remain at the current level for this financial year."
That's remain at £7 a day, not the rise to £15 a day that they really wanted. Such...
Thankfully even the Sun newspaper have finally realised what a sad sack of a man he is, and suspended him. His latest is calling Ross Barclay a gorilla, after his nightclub fight.
So, 2.3b barrels, they say.
What do we do?
1. Keep it in the ground, and save the planet.
2. Exploit the hell out of it.
Somebody's just driven a large truck into a crowd outside a large department store in central Stockholm, 3 killed (so far). Could be another terrorist incident, seemingly shots fired.
Watched Panorama last night on the benefits cap.
Found it quite disturbing the lady who kept talking about getting 'her money' back first and her kids back second. She clearly had more going on than the cameras showed.
Interestsd what fols here think of it - to me it highlighted the...
Just when you things could not get any worse the Tory right claiming May would go to war over the sovereignty of Gibraltar.
A former Scotland international footballer and his ex-teammate have been ruled to be rapists and ordered to pay £100,000 damages despite never facing a criminal trial.
i didn't realise goodwillie was also at...
Are these the bravest protesters in Europe?
These brave folk are risking being tortured in Russia's inhumane prison regime because of their stand against their corrupt government. God bless them as they're incredibly courageous.
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...
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.
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?
