Scottish labour !
A sinking ship in Scottish politics... How do they try to rectify this?...
They hire Charlie Mann as director of communications...
The same guy who was Vladimir Romanov's PR man!
Looking for some advice.
I have a Belgian friend looking to come to Scotland for a couple of nights to do hiking/ wild camping.
I donít know much about this...anyone got any advice....
He has asked about best destination to do this, mentioning the Cairngorms...?
Any advice welcome
£32 million for content that is 50% regurgitated? Seems an incredible waste of money for a 'new' tv channel!
Surprised this hasn't attracted any comment given the obvious parallels.
It all looks very messy atm. How do we see this ending up?
So I will stop hi-jacking other threads I think this topic deserves it's own thread as this is the cult shaping the modern world.
Just to kick It off.
Died of a heart attack this evening. Whatever next.
This is from an independent journalist instead of the department of propaganda otherwise known as the BBC... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8HRcISVwYM
Anyone seen the video utter scandalous would be terrible if this fell into the papers hands, I can't figure out how to post it
A 78 year old man arerested for allegedly murdering one of two men who broke into his house and attacked him with a screwdriver. The old man has the nerve to stab one of the assailant who was half his age. Deserves a lengthy jail sentence ..... or a VC, IMO.
I trust there will be...
Why has this story appeared?
It's a total non-story, but it seems to me that it's designed to make sure that as many euro-sceptics as possible don't vote Labour.
How the **** is/was John Humphrys worth between £600,000 and £649,000 a year as a radio presenter?
I've just seen a BBC news report also stating that Sarah Montague was unhappy because she was only being paid £133,000 a year - way below her male counterparts. She has said she felt her pay...
As reported on front page of tomorrow's Observer. Interesting if true.
It's just not right.
It's been raining here steadily for hours and hours.
My driveway is a lake and I've never seen the garden with so many puddles.
I just looked at the forecast for Edinburgh as I'm coming up for the game tomorrow and it's horrible.
It's April, FFS!
WTF is going on. 56 murder investigations this year alone. Anyone know how many there are in Scotland for this period?
Edit: 61 for the whole of the stat year 2016/17 https://beta.gov.scot/publications/homicide-scotland-2016-17-9781788512367/
Something seriously wrong in London at the moment...
In a developed European country in 2018 how is this allowed to happen? It doesn't read like a tiny minority either, it appears in certain areas this is a sizable number of children and families. I've had to tighten the belt in the last few months with...
Edinburgh council are introducing a £25 a year charge to pick up your brown garden waste bin I see.
Apparently 67,000 will opt out so where are they going to put their waste? Dump it somewhere no doubt.
My local councillor (Labour) blaming the Scottish Government for cutting the council...
As it says.
A friend just bought tickets for Joan Baez concert and has just been ripped off by Viagogo. £20 booking fee/ ticket. Hidden charges till the end. Appears their website is set up to con the unsuspecting buyer.
Be warned!!!!!! Please spread the word. It's the only way to beat traders of this ilk.
Seen Steaming Lord Foulkes has been in the press again. Stupid auld Yam pisshead!
10g of sugar per 100ml to be reduced to 5g. Folk are in uprour!!
Sad day RIP.
Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust is fined £2million over safety breaches.
What good does this fine actually serve? Taking £2m from an NHS trust that is already massively underfunded seems counter productive to me.
He's sure about that? :bitchy:
Claims political asylum from a country with a shocking human rights and free speech record....
Brave freedom fighter or hypocritical, narcissistic, lying sex-pest?
This is what we live with in Scotland:
its absolutely shameful and must be stamped out.
Ant (from Ant & Dec) has been done for drink driving and their Saturday night takeaway show has been cancelled.
Been amazed by some peoples reaction on twitter, giving it "aww he's got mental health issues, he's struggling with a drink problem etc etc". IMO he deserves no sympathy for getting...
Apparently targetting Hibs and Hearts fans for recruitment, there's leafleting in opposition to them at this Saturday's game.
I'm surprised to see Mr Gaffney was caught out in his latest speech ranting about homophobic, and racist remarks. I would have thought he could have tempered his language given he was speaking to Labour students at a burns supper.
All this after, Anas, was reporting being abused by another of...
Shocking situation, especially for those that were driving under it as it collapsed.
The video shows a few cars fully or partially trapped under the bridge. Looks like one car driver had a close encounter - the front part of the car is untouched, the rear part is flattened.
So tragic http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-43403178 🤢
I note that the guilty party's accomplice hasn't been identified or found.
Here's a solution. As this jakey is not divulging who his pal is, why not add his absent friend's likely sentence to his? That might help jog his memory.
RIP up there with the diddy men
funny guy, wonder why he had 20 offshore accounts though :wink:
It looks like the internet has named, shamed and shared photographs of Jon Venables. I've seen the photographs (which I'm not going to post for obvious reasons) and they all show a man that I'm convinced is him...and it seems to be backed up by reports that he's now demanding plastic surgery to...
Lost my credit card so cancelled it on paypal. Paypal won't accept new card.
Their site says it could be because bank won't accept "$1" charge.
Anybody had similar problem?
For those of you so inclined ...
Haven't read it in years, but another plank of my youth has rotted away.
I don't mean the police. It's fashionable to "hate the pigs" until you actually need them.
I mean the Fire and Ambulance Services.
I've always held them in the highest regard and I would automatically defer to their requests, but more and more often we read about them being attacked whilst...
I was driving at Turnhouse and witnessed dozens (no exaggeration) of emergency vehicles tearing along and parking up at the airport. Anyone else see anything or know what's going on? Can't see anything on any media about it.
