I recently received a new TSB VISA debit card as my last one was split along the magnetic strip. Anyway it arrived with a different set of 16 numbers.
I never thought anything about it until I got a text saying my direct debit on my mobile phone remained unpaid for last month because they were...
That's how the MSF have described the Afghan Government's justification of the bombing of their hospital in Kunduz, which killed 22 people.
The United States military initially tried to justify the air strike, which they carried out at the request of Afghan forces, by saying that US soldiers...
Come back Genghis Khan all is forgiven ....
Ministers should waste no time to make unpopular cuts to pensioner benefits, a think tank director has said.
Many of those hit by a cut to the winter fuel allowance might "not be around" at the next election, said Alex Wild of the Taxpayers'...
It seems like a good idea, though, and it will be difficult for the government to refuse it.
Reasonable documentary on BBC last week on their rise & fall.
Reunion & tour planned, I see.
(ps. to Admin - maybe thread should be in the Dugout)
Just been watching a programme about the kkk on bbc3 and its crazy to think people still live like this, one guy actually said the concentration camps were like summer camps, truly awful beliefs
Believe it or not, the destruction of the two chimneys was actually aired on tonight's 7pm Australian

Brought back memories....
I've been utterly aghast listening to some of the comments that have been coming from seemingly 'highly-supported' candidates for the Republican Presidential nominations.
The most recent of them being Ben Carson's comments that a Muslim should not be allowed to be President of the United...
I just signed the petition "Warwick Students Union: Allow Maryam Namazie to speak at The University of Warwick" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

... John Baird and Andrew Hardie were hanged and then decapitated as radical militant leaders in the Scottish Insurrection of that year.
The roots of the 'Insurrection' lay in rising unemployment, bad working conditions, high food prices, and a totally uncaring and unresponsive government. It...
Does anyone else think Aaron was sorry? :faf::faf::faf::faf:
I know it may be considered "political fantasy" but I'm interested to see how people would vote if the UK was given a referendum on the Monarchy.
Speaking a lot of sense tonight. He certainly told the truth about the use of the word austerity in this country compared to Greece.
This is culpable homicide, IMO.
Greed at it's worst. Totally disgusting.
I'm quite keen on this idea - basically, if people are prepared to accept that and innocent person could be hanged, they won't mind taking the chance that it could be them.
Or death Lotto Max:
The latest post-September 2014 opinion poll published on 2 September 2015 puts Yes at 53%.
Do you think Scotland will ever become an independent country, and if so, when?
Well, there you go.
Today is Merchant Navy Day. I had the privilege of raising the red ensign at Stirling Council offices this morning. Merchant Seamen are without doubt the forgotten service. We did not sign up to go to wars before anyone says we knew what we were letting ourselves in for. :wink: However, we had to....
Evening News reports some bint that works for Big Hearts charity has embezzled just over £53 grand from it "to pay off loan sharks"
You couldn't make it up, they just can't help themselves.....:hilarious
What's the feeling on this one? I personally feel it's justifiable if intelligence offered indisputable evidence that they were orchestrating attempted terrorist attacks in the UK and actively recruiting British extremists.
See two have been shot while filming live.
The world has gone mad!
Film director Wes Craven has died from cancer. Surely must be up there as one of the most famous directors of all time.
No wages paid today for any customers. Absolute fizzing lol
This will no doubt annoy loads of folk who hate Sky/Fox and think these things are all done deals but I'm watching the Republican candidate debate and I think it's actually all right :greengrin. The candidates are doing what candidates do but the questioning has been good, searching at times -...
Good to know the Yams are keeping their traditions alive.
Had problems with my hip for years and having been for an MRI I have Osteoarthritis. Wrecked my football career with the Blue Brasil, ( that and being *****!) Consultant wants me to put off replacing the joint for as long as possible as I'm only 45. My job involves swimming training every week and...

Why aren't you a PM no more.
I've posted something for you over there.
Anyone any idea if the authorities caught up with Romanov or was he just allowed to disappear quietly with the missing millions from his companies?
Just curious. It all seemed to just disappear like snow off a dyke.
Having delt with my own gambling demons for years, i think this story is a fantastic idea.
poor Arfur :(
Actor George Cole, best known for playing Arthur Daley in TV's Minder, has died aged 90.
About to have a lumbar puncture done for the first time and thought I'd spook myself by asking how painful it is? Anybody had one in the past?
What if anything should be done about them,over the last month or so pulses have been raised by the flying rats in my household ,
a degree of fear has entered whence once there was none ,theyre everywhere a seagull a few inches above your napper flying directly at you gives the impression of being...
Surprised to see no thread on this?
So, WTF has happened here?
I'm really not sure what to think at this stage but it's now looking like a definite hijack.
An interesting turn of events: a fella brought before the Old Bailey and charged with perverting the course of justice after alleging that Ken Clarke sexually assaulted him, is found...
Watching the news this morning there was a story on a school in England where the pupils were being taken to Barbados at the cost of £1600. It brings up the question again to me whether some parents are being forced into paying for there kids to go on these trips that seem to be getting bigger and...
I am sure many people here will not be aware of this cretin, or maybe some of you saw his attack on Tsipras in the EU which got a fair bit of coverage as someone highlighting the Greek PM's faults. Why did he launch this blistering attack demanding reforms from the Greeks - to line his grubby...
