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Personally I think its an outdated nonsence that we have these unelected people that have the highest stake in society for no reason other than the fact they were lucky enough to be born into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...
I’m 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. I’m 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 folks’ 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:...
Boxing with no punching?
Horse racing with no jockeys?
Formula 1 with a 20mph limit?
High jump with a max of 3ft bar
Cricket played with a tennis ball?
Football wearing slippers?
Reports of mass shootings in Vegas by another loser/losers.
Never going to end is it?
Very sad RIP
Thank God for the EU. We've clearly been in a world for some time now where gigantic corporations are running circles round national governments on tax. They can do sweetheart deals with an Ireland or a Luxembourg that they cannot get away with when the EU decides to take a collective interest.
There's a post from these erses doing the rounds on social media with a picture of an alleged hibby singing a derogatory song about Lee Rigby. It's only a photo with the guy's name and claiming he's a hibby so there's no way of knowing if it's genuine or not.
Anyone on here know if this is real...
To me this article in WoS about Nick Robinson seems to have missed the point.
IIRC, what was offensive was the BBC's editing of the Q/A time in that Salmond's answer on the telly report was not his response to the question originally asked. IMO it was deliberate...
I was reading an article on the BBC today about a report prepared by the Royal College of Nursing following canvassing of front line staff that highlights several issues with the service the NHS is providing.
There were several issues raised including elderly patients dying alone, medication...
Company has gone bust, leaving 110k people stranded. Other airlines have put up prices for alternative flights. Apparently Monarch we’re still taking bookings over the weekend.
The Archbishop of Canterbury has criticised the way the BBC handled sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile.
The Most Rev Justin Welby said the BBC had not shown the same integrity over accusations of child abuse that the Catholic and Anglican churches had.
I guess they'll have 400,000 pee-ed off ex-passengers.
Wow - glad it wasn't me that did their pilots' holiday chart.
I think this may be my favourite ever news headline on the BBC news front page.
No, you're mad.
No I'm not, you're mad.
The total state of the pair of them.
Lots of folk equate the German CDU to the UK's Tory party. Whilst they are right of centre they're nowhere near as despicable as May and co. Whilst I could never support the CDU I really do hope she gets re-elected, simply because I think her humanitarian decisiveness at the height of the refugee...
Think the Catalans have it tough? These guys have been repeatedly fobbed off since the end of the Ottoman empire.
Of course, they have been allowed to live as an oppressed minority in the super stable "nations" between whom their home is carved up. :rolleyes: So that's alright then ...
