I suppose that everyone who runs for President must be pandering to their ego to some extent or another, but Trump seems to have taken it to another level.
In addition, not only has he no political skills, he has no diplomacy and, I genuinely believe he is a threat to...
Brexit, blah blah, Aleppo, blah blah, the economy, blah blah.
Ignore all those irrelevancies.
This'll get us elected.
You really could not make this up.
So that's both his professional and personal judgement that are now in question. That'll be him a stick-on as a future Scottish FM then.
Loganair is moving flights to Glasgow because of rising landing costs at Edinburgh. Are they (Edinburgh Airport) getting too greedy? Their £1 drop-off charge particularly chokes me.
Good friends of mine (and good hibbies too) have lost their dog down gullane beach.
Its a blonde lab / poodle cross called walter, he is only 1 and has a lovely nature.
He darted off amd hasnt beem seen since - if any dog walkers etc are around that way over the weekend, please...
Dan and the Abstainers.
I've decided that I'm going to stand for political office.
Bring back hanging will be my flagship policy.
That should be enough do it in these populist days.
The NHS, the Local Councils, and so on.
It seems to me the powers that be are playing a game of Jenga with all these things.
One day the whole system will collapse.
If you want to reduce the ground pressure of a building you don't remove the lower floors, you start at the roof.
The "Sack the...
Notorious for posing with his kills including a lion,falls 100ft and dies.
Some would say Karma!
I know there are still dozens of vacancies in the NHS in Scotland, but some folks are quick enough to knock the Government a every opportunity. (You know who you are :wink: )
Half of Scotland want Independance and half of Scotland doesn't.
Half of the UK want Brexit and half of the UK doesn't.
Half of the USA want Trump and half of the USA doesn't.
Half of the USA want Clinton and half of the USA doesn't.
The only exception is nobody in the real world wants Trump...
This article appeared in the Scotsman the other day, when I read it, I was surprised to read that the Union had given away their right to strike for wonga.
Then I read this. Don't...
Was on a walk with the family today and on our way home spotted graffiti with 'Bar Ox' now I now Ox is Oxgangs but what does the Bar mean? Used to see that name quite a bit when growing up in the 80s but rarely see anything now. I guessing all the members are old men now!
First line of this news story is probably the best opening line to a news story I've ever read.
Do any hibs.net posters own drones?
Anybody else think that RBS are using the online banking as a convenient excuse?
They closed a branch near me saying that walk-in customers were down 11%.
What about the rest? Did someone at a management meeting ask, "How can...
For those of us (like me) old enough to remember King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, the death of a legend. Great voice too.
Very powerful speech today by Michelle Thompson on sexual violence. She said she was raped at the age of 14. The few MPs in the commons were very moved by her speech. It takes a lot of courage to speak out like that. Well done Ms Thompson
Do we have many Inverness and Invernesshire based Hibees? There is an opportunity for me to develop my career up there it seems like a world away!
Several times a season my brother comes up to Easter Road with me, we generally stay over if he does and like a few pints and then a curry.
Any recommendations for a decent curry house?
Scottish schools drop in world rankings
Rather than posturing for Indy round 2, can you please just do your job and address the increasingly glaring deficiencies of our education system. This is happening on your watch and you have absolutely no excuses.
All the best
Does anybody know where I can find information on the sale of the City Hospital and the Princess Margaret Rose?
I'm mostly interested in finding out how much the land was sold for, and who got the money from the sales, ie, NHS, local or central government. And also who sanctioned the sales?
Given that we have a Tory government in power, an ineffective opposition and Brexit, why is it that popular support is falling away? What will it it take for it to recover any time soon? Will Sturgeon pay any heed and park any notion of a second referendum in the near-term?
Apparently he had been suffering from dementia for the last four years.
Had a good innings at 86 but it's still sad to see such an iconic figure from British comedy pass away.
He was outstanding as Manuel.
Looking forward to this tonight. Russell Brand will hopefully be on top form after the slating he has had lately and who better to have in his sights than Nigel "the pricks prick" Farage..... Should be interesting.
Has died aged 90.
Spending on the royal family to go up 3/4 in the next ten years, thoughts ?
I only hope his twitter has been hacked this evening...
May impact some on here...
Customers to be moved to other suppliers and won't lose any up front payments.
Joe Corre (son of Malcolm McLaren) burned £5m worth of pink memorabilia in protest of a planned 40th celebration of the birth of Punk.
"Punk was never, never meant to be nostalgic" said Joe.
He may have a point.
Well...I may be sensationalising a bit :greengrin
Is it just me or is this really a front for retailers dumping sale stock at the end of November instead of at the end of the Christmas period.
There's a few good general discounts of 10-20% but nothing extra-ordinary on thing you would really pay full price on.
Why is that place so bad? I know a lot has been done to improve its appearance but jeezo. Having a police officer stationed there for part of the day might help. Clearly selling stuff, a proper fight and folk not batting an eyelid!
Also what is it with folk using f instead of th to start a...
Considering wall mounting my TV and concealing the cables behind the wall, but given I have plasterboard walls I am interested in exploring professional options for doing so. Anyone had this done in Edinburgh recently and able to provide recommendations and an indication as to costs?
Just spotted my old gym teacher summarising the game on the TV!!!:not worth:rolleyes:
Whether it be wee Scotland, bigger England, massive Russia and humongous 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...
I saw this story this morning and thought, what a brilliant idea.
It's absolutely heartbreaking watching the interviews with the players who were abused as youngsters. So brave, especially Mr. Woodward who inspired others to open up.
It's starting to remind me of the Savile stuff: paedophiles who abuse their positions, star struck kids who feel that they have...
How far away are we from an open and honest reassessment of the public services we all want and the level of taxation we need to pay to ensure delivery?
I feel that so many people are directly affected by their families experiencing poverty, healthcare issues, old age, crumbling local service...
