Prof Curtice on recent polling:
The TL;DR - drop in SNP support has been mainly due to defecting anti-EU Leave voters, but SNP support has firmed a bit since June to around 40%, still way ahead in...
Does anybody actually like this man?
The latest quote from his bazaar memoirs accuses Salmond of being 'unhelpful' after the Glasgow airport terrorist attack. This from a man who was instrumental in the WMD war that, as we know, went a long way in ensuring peaceful co-habilitation. :rolleyes:
Saw the headline and thought what's he been up to now.
What are your views?
I found this article thought provoking.
Fun but totally wrong. Had me as 38.
Hopefully we will now see the last of the appalling casting couch culture. I suspect the HW allegations are only the tip of the iceberg.
It is worth noting that this situation does not only apply to women. There have been suggestions in the past that James Dean may have 'succumbed' to forward his...
At least 27 dead. ****ing tragic that this keeps happening again and again. Thoughts with those who've lost their lives.
Turned into an excuse for bad behaviour. 4 cars torched in Craigentinny including one being driven into the bonfire, police officer injured in the process. In Muirhouse police pelted with fireworks and school in lasswade burnt down.
Although this is just a short article, it's quite interesting and I'm tempted to buy the book.
I'm fascinated by the conclusion that football supporters swear about their own teams on Twitter rather than their opponents. I must look out for that.
Was supposed to look like this:-
Iíve gone on about this before. Dropping the voting age to 16 is policy for every party but the DUP and the Tories.
Now thereís a vote and the old woman who is squatting in number 10 is blocking its progress.
After they screw up Brexit the Conservativeís truly are toast for a generation.
Everywhere in the news at present.
The BBC in particular, but others as well, hounding people for their tax avoidance activities.
Every news item seems to include the words, "of course, this activity is not illegal".
What are peoples thoughts...
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Personally I think its an outdated nonsence that we have these unelected people that have the highest stake in society for no reason other than the fact they were lucky enough to be born into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.
Been a long time coming.
BREAKING: Multiple people are dead and several are injured following an incident in lower Manhattan, per a senior New York City official
David Cameron stated "The NHS is safe in my hands and I don't want anyone to ever tell you otherwise".
We didn't believe him then and not much has changed since then.
As my old banger has been consigned to the scrapheap, I am looking into my options. Having spent a fortune this year on my wedding and honeymoon, I'm not really in a position to buy a car until next year and was wondering about leasing.
I'm more about reliability than looks and just...
Iím heading to the South Island for a 4 week holiday in November, primarily to visit family but also planning on doing a bit of travelling around as well. Iím travelling solo and will mostly be based in Christchurch but should have access to a car.
Does anyone have any recommendations on things...
Saying in the record that the football lads alliance are targeting teams in Scotland, including ourselves for recruitment.
I hope they get told to gtf. They claim they're not right wing...
The Liverpool major says he is considering introducing "knife arches" into night clubs.
Apart from the relatively small initial cost at which club owners may balk, what objections could people have to this idea?
Sculpture inspired by Aberdeen football supporters erected in Paris.
What's everyones view of the movement in the USA which started Colin Kaepernick started to kneel during the USA anthem and led to a movement dividing a country?
Reading the link, I can't believe the loss of life.
Philando Castile, 32,...
Not a lot of chat about this on the usual media channels, but we've got a hurricane heading towards us (Most easterly hurricane since we started keeping records apparently) and it's likely to get fairly blowy towards the end of tomorrow. The National Hurricane Centre in the US have said it's still...
One of the good ones taken out by one or more of the bad ones.
This article is very funny, and I am sharing it for its entertainment value, but sadly, it's conclusion is close to the truth about the current state of politics in the UK.
Sad to hear that Sean has died. A funny guy and good hibby rip.
Just read that Salmond part of a consortium that is trying to buy The Scotsman from Johnson Press.
(Brian Wilson put on suicide watch no doubt. :greengrin)
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?
37-years since Richmond got a Grand Final win, and I see they are currently leading Adelaide 40-31 at half time. I’m not a fan of the team, but would nice to see them get up.
Debating whether or not to buy the TV license, wondering what other folksí thoughts are on the whole thing?
Drove the NC500 this weekend. I had been all over the East Coast up to John O'Groats but i have to say the West Highlands are amazing!
The scenery is breathtaking. Stayed in Kylesku then went round to Melvich in the North and finally stopped in Dornoch on way south.
For a short break it really...
Last nights Euromillions jackpot was £170M.
A guy in my work stated that if he won it he would invest a chunk in buy to let property to provide a steady income.
Seriously? Ypu have £170M. Firstly why do you need the hassle? Secondly, and imo more importantly, you have £170M. Why do you need a...
A car has crashed injuring many pedestrians after mounting the pavement outside the Natural History Museum in London.
No mention yet on the cause of this incident but Police have confirmed that they have detained someone.
You can have a petition to get rid of Her Majesty .... but not Neil Oliver (according to 38 degrees). :hmmm:
Forgive me if I have picked this up wrong. The taxpayer is going to be faced with a £60M bill to bring passengers home. Surely they should be obliged to have some sort of insurance for this kind of situation.
Does anyone know in situations like this where would the govt stand in the list of...
During a fringe event at the Conservative Party conference, Boris Johnson said Libyan city Sirte could be the new Dubai, adding, "all they have to do is clear the dead bodies away".
At a separate event, Iain Duncan Smith came out with this crap:...
