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...
Thomas Mair refused to say anything when he was asked how do you plead at the start of the trial so, a plea of not guilty was entered on his behalf. This resulted in the family and friends of her and the gentleman who attempted to come to her rescue being subjected to hearing loads of evidence...
Post-millennials rip the pish out of millennials.
Just as well we're part of a much larger economy.
GERS 2014-15 report
This is a very interesting article that really does explode some of the myths around Trump's election, especially the deluded, but almost ubiquitous, theory that, if Bernie Sanders had been the Democrat candidate, he would have won!
The section in this article, which describes a small selection...
I've only flicked through the paper one - they had a double spread on James Connolly to commemorate the anniversary of the 1916 Irish Rising. Anyone read it?
Noticed that a guy was selling it in Albion Road after the game today. Can understand them trying to flog a few copies outside the ground....
Post your vote here just for fun!!!
Was reading on the BBC the French have commented about moving the border to UK not Calais.
I'm not at the wind up here, but can't figure how that would work. Will they not obliged to check that anyone passing through their borders to anywhere outside EU has valid travel documents, I.e. a...
Just read an article about Joni mitchell where she wore black make up for fancy dress. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-37781800
I have previously been out as Mr t, shaved hair beard, black face and body paint. Jewellery etc. I didn't think there was nyting wrong with it and considered it...
I'm leaning towards bam.

Briton Ben Hooper begins world-record attempt to swim across Atlantic Ocean
On this day 27 years ago I was in Berlin. Amazing experiance!
There has been "some loss of life" and dozens of people have been injured after a tram overturned in south London, police have said
sky news reporting a possibility of 'several' fatalities, driver of the tram has now been arrested
Just wondering what people think about this new protest camp in Holyrood Park
I really like this approach. Not sure how feasible it is all the time, but forming alliances makes sense to me. Or am I just a 'liberal lefty' :greengrin
The height of the whole Britpop movement was 20 years ago today. I had just turned 21 and was lucky enough to be there on the Saturday and saw some amazing bands at their peak, including Oasis who I felt were really never the same after Knebworth.
Although as Noel said how do you top two...
.....by the Daily Herald.
A bit like Craig Thomson being voted Referee Of The Year in 2012 by the Hearts Supporters Club or Albert Kidd being picked as POTY in 1986 by St Pats. :coffee:
Why Gary Lineker, Lily Allen and you shouldn't comment
Don't comment if you're poor or disadvantaged, because you're a scrubber and a scrounger and basically a waste of space.
Don't comment if you've got any affiliation with a political party or social movement, or have previous for...
Calling all cab drivers.
What's your thoughts on today's decision about Uber drivers?
Not had any tonight?
Good news for the North East of England.
Fundamentally, as I understand it, and as it was explained to me last week, what's happened is that they've agreed with the government that the UK taxpayer will pick up any tariffs which may be imposed on their exports because of Brexit.
Vatican bans Catholics from keeping ashes of loved ones at home
It's an interesting case. Wonder how the courts would have acted had it been a gay baker refusing to bake a cake with a message saying 'Don't support gay marriage'.
Thoughts on the finale?
I got this link from a story in the Scotsman.
There are some really fantatstic photos.
This is the weekly show piece which offers an opportunity to affect public opinion and Labour should have this government over a barrel, but everything just seems so tame and weak.
Questions about Saudi Arabia, although laudable, are hardly going to win back Labour voters from UKIP and the...
Of Dead or Alive is, erm, Dead.
Always the eccentric but seemed to go a mad on the surgery front.
In general, I find most of the wacky types who sit in basements and claim that 9/11 was all a Bush masterplan to invade Afghanistan/Iraq (or whatever other spurious claims they make) to be risible as for - from what I've seen and heard - all the evidence for the 2 main towers points to it being...
Caught a snippet of the news this morning. Am I right in saying that Israeli agents boarded the ship of a foreign power in International waters today, and then started a gun fight?
That can't be right can it?
It sounds like this one will be confirmed tomorrow, any guesses what the ticket prices might start at. Me and my mate really fancy it.
Theresa May wants a 'grown up' relationship between the UK countries.
Does she mean
a) the smaller countries will be treated as adults i.e. equals now or
b) the smaller countries must stop behaving like spoilt little children and to shut up and do as they are told?
Lineker. Fair play to the annoying, anodyne, smug twat. I like him now.
Looks like we lost another one!!
Anyone watched this programme its on i player at present Found it very thougt provoking Some interesting Trump footage ,but its tracing of the Middle East back to Kissenger and Asad and thete different stances is fascinating n terms of thePaestinian issue and the rise and role of the suicide...
What are your thoughts on this? This guy carried out mercy killings on fatally wounded Iraq troops.
