Someone was asking me today who the guy was on the column in St Andrews Square. I have to admit I didn't know who it was, I later googled it and found out who he was.
I must say I'm quite surprised that such a controversial figure has such a prominent place in our city.
After reading up on him, I...
20years on and the media are covering the anniversary of her death extensively.
My experience of the events at the time was that the mood in the media wasn't reflected in the people. There was an interesting documentary at the time which vox popped the people turning up for the funeral who were...
This isn't a comment on Trump's situation, just an interesting diversion as I'd never realised the extent of the Secret Service's job, although it's obvious now.
Secret Service director says agency running out of money protecting Trump
Blame society at it again. "Look where you're going" course urgently required.
Has anyone had a first date that ended as, er, differently as this one?
I was reading something about Katie Hopkins and I fleetingly thought that I'd like to shoot her. Understandable, I'm sure (most of) you agree.
In the early 80's, it was quite common for young dafties like me to get together in pubs and talk in sombre tones about sending someone to London to kill...
According to this person anyway.
Way to go, fight racism with racism.😧
Really!! She and her goverment HAVE to go!!
Even their own donors are contemplating a better alternative with Labour.
Spotted 2 lowbrow football casuals in Perth city centre today scoping out suitable marching territory for their 1.30 demo against the new Mosque on Sunday 10th September. Looking forward to chants of "No Surrender, Fk Refugees and Fk the IRA.
What's the chances I could get a few 3-2 banners...
Really needing some advice from those in the know folks.
At lunchtime today we had an offer accepted on a house, really significant amount after ages saving.
Couple of hours ago, I took a family friend to see it in the car. She was instantly shocked at the house I bought. Immediately over the...
Does anybody believe anything that's reported by the Press these days?
All newspapers appear to have thrown away all ethics (if some ever had any the first place) in favour of, not just sensationalism, but blatant political propaganda.
While the internet can be just as bad, I think people are a...
I amlooking at our use of electronic devices and I have created a simple onequestion survey that I am hoping you can spare two minutes to share yourviews:
I'm currently going through withdrawals from codein. Cut a long story short I got addicted to firstly prescription pain killers and then the over the counter stuff. Ended up on 96 tablets a day. Have been on 60mg codein continuous tablets for the past 7 years unsuccessfully trying to come off them...

Interesting programme last night. "Who do you think you are" featuring Lulu.
Laid bare the religious divide in her family's past.
I have mixed feelings about this story.
My initial reaction was to think badly of the organisation for saying what it did, although beauty contests were already very low in my estimation, and I also thought, "well done" to the the contestant, for taking such a principled stand, and losing out...
It's so unnecessary and cruel.
Man born and raised in UK told he is not a British citizen
I'll wait till the dust settles on this in case it's a false dawn, but I'm very encouraged.
The prospect of rejoining the Party actually entered my...
The stretch is appearing in the evenings and Im now planning my festivals for the year.
First one up for me is Supersonic festival being held in the Digneth Area of Birmingham https://supersonicfestival.com I've been once before and really enjoyed it. Like the last time I only new one of two...
Barcelona 'attack': Van 'drives into dozens of people' on La Rambla in the city centre.
Andrew Neill stepping down.
He has an odd manner about him but he doesn't half ask the searching questions and will hang on in if he deosn't think he's getting an answer.
Hope we'll still see him...
Or maybes not. :hmmm:
Good that The Trump has attempted to condemn white supremacists.
Not so good that he can't say supremacists.
I'm unclear as to why what she wrote and is condemned as racist. The common denominator in all these sex network stories appears to be the ethnicity of the gangs of men involved. Is it because she focused only on the 'British Pakistani' men? Should...
Read Falkirk Fc rewarded exam achievers with free entry into a match based on exam awards. Personally I was horrified as it demonstrates an elitist outlook. Surely the ones left behind should be given any freebies not the ones who will stroll through an already corrupted 'winners' society?
I see our beautiful city was blighted by these cretins last week and this week Glasgow has the misfortune of hosting this bigotfest.
An utter embarrassment in this day and age and in a Nation that tries to pride itself on its modern, progressive and tolerant society. Brings out every...
No doubt we are living in uncertain times.
I found this analysis of the 2017 election interesting in the segmentation of the vote is broken down. I think we are moving somewhere new and events will kick the process on but this is a snapshot.
- Young vote Labour - we knew that
- young people...
All these years I've thought I've lived in Scotland and lo and behold, I don't I actually live in an "Unknown Region".
Will I need a new passport? Do I change my address? Do I change my nationality to an Unknownian?
Phew! No worries. It's all been sorted ......
A good story to come out of Ibrox for a change. Well done to the fans that chipped in the £4K to make up for the small minority of their fans who did the opposite in Sheffield recently. The only fly in the oinment is the bit in the...
This is something that has been bugging me for a while, and I'd like to get some other opinions so I can clarify whether or not I'm a total monster.
It seems every week I see a facebook post, mainly from younger generations, remembering the anniversary of the death of a family member or friend....
Can anyone recommend any good Edinburgh based IFA's?
There seems to be a bit of controversy about Northubria Police's decision to pay £10,000 to a convicted child rapist for information on an investigation into a grooming gang. The investigation and information the informant provided led to the...
Gone now but, (is it just me) Mike pence seems to be a white Obama!!!
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...
ARGUING WITH IDIOTS is like playing chess with a pigeon; no matter how good you are at chess the pigeon is just going to knock over the pieces, crap on the board and strut around like it's victorious. -Anon
