See there is a relatively new peado hunting group in Scotland (the first one in Scotland I think), Wolfpack Hunters.

A mate of mines is in the process of separating from his wife.
There's lots of advice available via Solicitors etc, but that can be very expensive, so I'm hoping my fellow .netters will be the usual source of all knowledge and can answer a few questions :-)
My mate got married around 3 years...
We had a thread a while back about a poster complaining about being in a pub gaarden and a smoker sitting next to them and lighting up. Although they had a valid point there is always the chance that the people that want to run (or should that be ruin) our lives to the way they would want others...

In the middle of being restored after a catastrophic fire a few years back, and it's just gone up in flames again!
Fire has spread to several buildings surrounding, including the O2 ABC (which is my favourite gig venue in Glasgow :( ), who's roof appears to have collapsed!
Devastating when it...
Gets published tomorrow. As you would expect, some bits are being leaked and spun already. Twitter is going to be an unreadable nightmare as the zealots on both sides tell you it's a warped fantasy perpetrated by evil anti-English bigots or the greatest thing since sliced milk and honey.
Remarkable gorilla dies.
Highly articulate rap dude Akela is highlighting that the murder rate in Scotland is higher than London but the tabloids (and Trump) are getting all aerated only about London stabbings. He says Wales is higher too but can't find the stats on that.
