Mohammed Rehman, 25, discussed targeting the London Underground and Westfield shopping centre on social media under the name "Silent Bomber"....
Really enjoyed it. Honey blood were decent, Idlewild were superb and Biffy were just ****in awesome!!! Great atmosphere and a few drinks consumed (that I sneeked in) as I'm a tight wad and hate getting ripped off... Fiver for a tiny bottle of cider?! However, my real gripe is this... Only tickets I...
A giant of music is no more.
Hard to believe there are no casualties so far.
Just near the junction to Robertson avenue.
car ambulance on the pavement and van ambulance with doors wide open. Big crowd around them.
anyone any idea what's happened. I'm guessing there's been trouble after the yams smelting game?
I'm quite a quiet soul really, like to just sit and get on with things, especially in work. Problem is, we've got a new lassie started and they've plonked her beside me, she won't shut up, she literally talks constantly and about everything and anything, even now she's talking about monopoly and...
Maybe I'm too cynical, but this just seems ridiculous to me.
Police are attending a shooting at a social services facility for disabled people in California
Fire officials in San Bernardino said it was responding to a "20 victim shooting incident" and it was working to clear the scene.
Just heard about this, rates being announced on the 16th December apparently to go live in April.
Anyone else nervous they're about to be shafted?
As the big day comes near, how relevant is Christmas? Most of us will put up a tree and exchange gifts with friends & family but is Christmas more about Santa than Chirst ? Have we as Chirstians lost sight of what we are compared to our religions?
Divorced .. but I'm rather surpirsed after the success of Oasis (and All Saints) that there pair of them are only worth £11m (£10m now)!!

Allegedly been a naught boy, again.
He has no strategy apart from doing nothing, that much is clear, but the big question is whether or not he allows a free vote.
If he does, the likelihood is that parliament will get to vote on the issue and will give its approval to a bombing campaign against ISIS.
This will allow him to...
Folks - I'm wondering if anyone has advice on travelling around Europe - bus or train views/ticket advice/experience in particular.
I have looked at Flixbus - https://www.flixbus.com/ - and it seems great value
I am contemplating a break seeing a number of European cities over a month-long...
With a lot being written around Carrmichael and Thompson. Which one one misled the electorate more about their personality and suitability to be an MP. Does leaking of a document to smear a rival politicians triumph fleecing vulnerable people in house deals?
For me, never surprised by the...
Wullie McIlvanney passed away earlier today, thoughts on his best works?
Has any other Hibee thought they may be on a Masonic Blacklist because they know you are a Hibs fan, because they think you of you either as a Catholic or Catholic tendencies because you support the Hibs.

As our devolved Parliament votes on the renewal of trident what's people's views on here on it?
The costs to renew are around £25bn with running costs of £2.5bn per year.
For me it's never been about the cost or the jobs it's always been that it's immoral for us to have WMD.
What a disgusting spectacle, its kicking off all over the country.
I only heard part of Gideon's statement, but what I did hear sounded positive for the Tories.
It was more like a pre-General Election give away rather than an early parliament autumn statement.
Yeah, I know it's the Telegraph, but the Labour leadership really are looking more and more incompetent every week.
The council has proposed changes to the parking restrictions in town. One of the proposals takes in the top of Leith and making it pay and display on a Saturday, Sunday and late into the night (9.30 is one time they've suggested). It would affect you if you drive to matches (it's said to try and...
Don't normally participate in celebrations of the death of other human beings but glad to make an exception in the case of the ISIS poster boy.
It won't make an ounce of...

In times of trouble, where else to look but STV:
I thought there would have been a thread on this, but it looks like tge Russian plane that crashed may have been blown up or hit with some sort of missile.
Im not really into politics etc but I have a feeling if this is true, and turns out to be isis/al queida etc the russians wont hold back on...
