  1. RBS to shut more branches

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-38170966 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...

  2. Queensferry Crossing Experience

    Did anyone get it in the ballot? All my friends have had emails to say they didn't get it, I've still not heard. When I login it says you're entered in the ballot still.

    Anyone given this a proper go? I started his fundamentals course yesterday. That lasts for 10 weeks. My mates tried to warn me off it as he was pretty overwhelmed by what he calls kundalini.

  7. Favourite / Best Gin

    Alright Guys, As with most of the U.K. I am fully onboard with gin nowadays. What’s everyone’s favourite gin and your favourite tonic? I’m looking to expand my palette. I’m a big fan of Ophir (slight spiced peppery taste).

  40. why is council tax calculated by property value rather than income?

    been wondering about why council tax bands are determined by your property value rather than your income...also, why it's based on what your property was worth in 1991 (i think?) rather than something more up-to-date? seems odd to me, and rather arbitrary. there must be a good reason though?
