I thought this might be of interest to .netters.
I'm decorating just now and stripped wallpaper down to the plaster and I came across some info written on the wall from 1969.
Car Tax was £25
Concorde had just finished test flights
Harold Wilson was PM
3 American Astronauts had orbited...
Twitter chat is that Tory party chairman and chief whips have net and looking at May 4.
Remarkably, Labour would support the move making it possible to get out of the fixed term.
It also could explain why Osbourne hasn't resigned as an MP yet.
It could just be a rumour, but May may say...
I guess it's not especially surprising that nobody has raised Scottish Labour's "federalism" plan on here and that's probably a good indicator of the weight attached to it by the Scottish public but just to check I'm not getting this wrong, they *really* are proposing to go into a new referendum...
That's how you deal with an ******** you have to deal with. cf. the May cringeathon.
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Personally I think its an outdated nonsence that we have these unelected people that have the highest stake in society for no reason other than the fact they were lucky enough to be born into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.
I'm doing a project in Geography about the decline of Princes Street and I wanted to include a few names of the big shops that were around before the regeneration of Princes Street in the 60's but theres pretty much nothing online so I was wondering if anyone on here can name any of the shops minus...
How will you vote and has it changed from last time?
Brexit will be a huge incentive for people to vote for Independence this time, but there are still some very difficult hurdles for the Yes camp to overcome.
I do hope that sensible, and credible, answers are given to important issues such as currency, the deficit and open borders.
First nomination this year:
What a speech in front of Donald Trump.
Can we use this thread to place links to articles that appear to expose twisted or false facts tossed out by the Media. Anything that enlightens us on the vast amount of BS out there. I stress that this is for both sides of the arguments (i.e. Brexit and Indyref2).
Each of us has our own opinions...
Any thoughts on todays "historic" decision?
00:30 Bridge closed to high sided vehicles.
02:00 Lorry overturns on bridge.
Bridge them closed until further notice because twats lorry is mangled in the grille between the lanes.
Enjoy the commute.
Reading in the comments to section in today's evening news article about proposed sdl march/gathering and also a March celebrating a sikh festival, it raises the question, in my mind anyway, what is the difference between patriotism, racism, and cultural preservation?
This is baffling. Rangers weren't relegated, they ceased to be did they not? Surely that was all Corals needed to say?
Maybe it was a hot potato and the bad press if they did claim that would have lost them a lot of TRFC punters.
Any winners today for you?
I had a couple of winners in Special Tiara and Cause of Causes :thumbsup:
She was sued by Jack Monroe and she lost. Monroe wins £24000, but Hopkins' also has to pay Montoe's legal costs.
I'm not sure which legal firm she used, but they're costing Hopkins £300k. On top of that there will be Hopkins' own legal fees.
I considered posting this in the good news stories...
What effect do you think a Yes vote in any second referendum would have upon the constitutional position of the rest of the UK? I'm thinking specifically of Northern Ireland here. The demographics are changing in the six counties, and it looks only a matter of time before there is a nationalist...
I am off to Benidorm for my brothers stag next week. 28 of us ffs, logistical nightmare.
I've never been, anyone recommend any do's and do nots? Places to go, places to avoid.
Red Lion and Jailhouse have been identified as holes to avoid.
Any other Hibees out there? I'll be in my...
Just been to an exhibition on caravans and mobile homes in the hope of finally being able to decide what to get. The plan is after retiring to travel over extended periods with the Mrs testing out Europe's golf courses.
Anybody any experience with both and what are in your views the pros and...
Anyone ever had their car remapped. I'm considering getting it done but my car is under manufacturers warranty, wondering if it I a risk.
Anyone here got teenage kids? My boy's hit his teens and is a nightmare at the moment, very aggressive, very angry/moody and very hard to get along with.
We've generally had a really good relationship up until the last few months where I've seen a big change in how he treats me and...
Trying to sue the lottery for running her life with gambling. Here's a solution give the remainder of your money to Hibs. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/britains-youngest-euromillions-winner-wants-9802119.amp?client=safari
Ms Chapple, of Speers Road, Leicester, admitted a charge of opening a vehicle door so as to injure or endanger another person.
The "other person", a cyclist, died.
What am I missing?
By elections at Stoke and Copeland coming up.
The last time the sitting government won a mid term by election was in 1982 when the Falkland war was at its height, and with the Tories in such disarray over the NHS and Brexit, both should shoo ins for Labour.
Obviously someone's been feeding...
I'd love that to be true, but it's not. (Sorry Golden Fleece).
There are as many racists and bigots and misogynists and homophobes etc etc in Scotland as anywhere else, imo. Probably more bigots than most places.
Loving this tune at the moment. Is it the flats behind the Kirkgate in the video?
This video is Edinburgh rap and contains the c word several times, so please don't follow the link if you don't like that kinda stuff. If you do, don't blame me if you are swearing at work tomorrow😂. It has the guy...
I'm looking for a new car, I fancy a Golf GTD or Seat Leon FR in diesel.
Arnold Clark have taken delivery of a couple of dozen Seat Leon FR's on 2015 plate. All of them are sitting at between 33-38k. I've been to see three of them. None of them have previously had a service until going through...
Let me finish with one more election story. It’s a Tony Blair visit to Hove in the run-up to 2005 GE. It’s a visit to a Sure Start Centre. Any organiser who has worked for the Labour Party for more than about five minutes has organised a visit to a Sure Start Centre. Parents, kids, colourful toys....
Got diagnosed with this a few months ago.been hiding it from family & friends till recently.thought I would find the answer in the bottle of a bottle.How wrong I was.I had the courage to tell my parents & friends about it.best thing I ever did.if anyone out there is having the same problem,please...
This article popped up on my FB. I thought it made a lot of sense.
Whether it be wee Scotland, bigger England, massive Russia and hu*****us USA the flight to nationalism is a common theme across deeply-divided and disillusioned electorates. We are living in a world where the population of nations is increasingly putting the blame for societal ills firmly at the...
In this post truth era, you've got to hand it to Tory MSP, Jamie Greene. Greene by name, but Green by nature.
Having a heated debate about grammar and would like some opinion from our resident Grammar Nazis.
Which of the following is correct and why?
Neither of us is capable of winning this.
Neither of us are capable of winning this.
They're mad as a box of frogs these *******.
Some heroes the working class of this country have standing up for them!!
Sorry can't copy and paste, but just to say there's a cracking article in the Daily Mail about our favourite Lord and his cronies. Beautiful pic too !! If someone could maybe share it please.....
Give the news today, that we have a severe shortage of midwives against a backdrop of increased births, why are we not hearing from the employment equality campaigners to have more men trained up. As it stands, only a tiny %age of midwives are male, is this a case of jobs for the women? I thought...
Today is a big day for both the Scottish Government and UK Governments as they decide what to do regarding the environment.
Fracking has been approved at one site in the north of England by Westminster, later the Scottish Government will decide whether to allow UCG under the Forth Estuary.
Nail on head.
