  1. Edinburgh Council Tax - Payment methods

    Question for any Council employees or anyone else on the know. Before I moved to West Lothian I sometimes used to pay my Council Tax for Edinburgh by posting them a cheque. However, having moved back into the area they don't seem to still offer this facility or at least advertise it. If I...

  2. The future of the Labour Party

    I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin. So what does the future hold for Labour? What with the exposure of Momentum promised by Channel 4 Dispatches already to be viewed tomorrow night, Panorama will...

  4. The Poppy

    It seems every year brings a new controversy or new story surrounding the national symbol of Remembrance. I find myself balking a little at how the symbol and meaning behind the poppy has become utterly *******ised in recent years. It's no longer simply a symbol of those who fought and gave up...

  7. Alcohol

    Alcohol minimum price will be introduced in Scotland. Waste of time and unfair on the Scots. The goal is to cut down alcoholic illness but there’s not a hope in hell of that succeeding by bumping up the price. All we’ll end up with is poorer alcoholics.

  23. Votes at 16

    Iíve gone on about this before. Dropping the voting age to 16 is policy for every party but the DUP and the Tories. Now thereís a vote and the old woman who is squatting in number 10 is blocking its progress. After they screw up Brexit the Conservativeís truly are toast for a generation.
