The remaining 3 big flats at Sighthill were blown up this morning, video on youtube.
Anyone see it?
I see the Scotsman is leading with a none too subtle attack on the SNP today on some of the detail of their budget..SCOTSMAN
While I am no fan of the SNP and in particular their cunning ability to spin anything good as down to them and anything bad as down to the Union I'm not quite getting this...
To day is Merchant Navy Day 2011. Every year we acknowledge (quite rightly) the sacrifices made by our armed forces in various conflicts. The MN is of course not an armed service and for many many years was never even considered when it came to memorials. Thankfully this is changing and this will...
Im going to america in the middle of September and with all this thing about the america debt does anybody know if this means we will get a better rate for dollars?
At the moment i can get the dollar at $1.6.
That Murdo Fraser wants to reform the Scottish Tories as a distinct party. Think someone said a few years ago that the Tories were viewed as being a toxic brand.
Anyhow, its a nice strategy: Scottish politics needs a credible, centre right voice. That said, if it looks like the Tories, talks...
There is police on North Bridge. They have got it cornered off. Does anyone know what happen. It looks like someone has jumped.
...the behaviour of the rioters and looters, and the behaviour of the bankers, and the establishment's differing response to both is a demented jackass.
George Osborne, Ken Clarke, Hugh Robertson (Tories); Ed Balls, Hilary Benn, Tessa Jowell, Chuka Umunna (Labour); Chris Huhne, Vince Cable, Tim Farron (Lib Dems) and Caroline Lucas of the Greens....
Sorry if I raised anyone's hopes - they're not actually sending stalkers out to shoot them (though...
This is for those in the USA, either staying or visiting.
Have you seen the latest TV commercial for Metro PCS? Loud and proud they have The Sash (in classic flute band format) playing during the entire commercial!!! It should also be pointed out that their commercials are renound for racist...
Anybody going to watch them?
Where do you reckon is the best place to watch?(with the exception of buying a ticket and hurting your neck by looking straight up :greengrin )
I posted a thread on here re: Majorca a while back, but following a trip to the travel agents, Fuerteventura for 4 nights at the end of September fitted nicely into my budget/timeframe, so I've come back to the font of well-travelled experts that is .net to see if anyone has any special do's/don't...
anyone had a problem with this? i found patches of mould underneath my window along one wall a couple months ago. i cleaned it away but have noticed its startin to come back. have also noticed a pipe outside has been dripping a wee bit the last couple days onto the outside of the wall and im...
Ive never met a self proclaimed aetheist who celebrated Hannukah or observed Ramadam or divali or such like. However aetheists do observe St Patricks day, Easter, Christmas. Why have Christian holidays been secularized by non believers rather than aetheists coming up with their own festivities?
Just a quick question, Do you have to have watched all the series before going to see the film? Fancied going to see it but im only at the end of series 1.
I hope everyone is safe :aok:
Don't know how many, if any, of you are familiar with this case but after 18+ years, three men were released today. wm3.org (and pretty much any news site in the US) will have more details if you are interested.
Just saw on the BBC that 'Red 4' Flt Lt Jon Egging lost his life yesterday after a display at Bournmouth. Saw them a few times this year and the most memorable being over Ocean Terminal earlier in the year.
These guys have remarkable skill and talent and our thoughts are with his family &...
amy winehouse found dead in her flat (sky news)
Almost spat my lunch over laptop when news stated that Glasgow streets were being altered as a location for Zombie War movie......not much needing altered then :greengrin
Lot's of people on hear who I don't know but have grown to respect. Therefore I'd seriously love to hear your opinions on the BIG question.
On mobile, so can't post a link, but read a story about 4 masked men, one of whom had a knife, broke into a house in Salford, a struggle happened and one of the burglars was stabbed and killed. The father of the 'victim' has said people deserve to protect their property, something I wholeheartedly...
Have hearts fans started to travel down already or are the spurs supporters gutted that they have to play hearts?
Ok, so with the visit of them on Sunday, we will no doubt be treated to the full shebang of Irish Folk songs from the South stand. A lot of people will make noises that it is out of order, sectarian, racist etc and a lot of others don't really care what they sing. However there will be some...
Could this be the end for Murdoch.....the end of the News of the World?
Major advertisers now refusing to advertise in the paper due to the revelations about the Milly Dowler case and now looks like they phone tapped the parents of the Soham girls Jessica and Holly.
Standard & Poor have reduced there credit rating to 2+
Is it just a blip or are we heading into a new financial storm?
The chinese are apparently furious as they have so much tied up in the dollar.
Another registration fee changes hands between the clubs :wink:
I had the mispleasure of witnessing one of these today in the royal mile.
How can we as a country supposedly trying to address our sectarian problems allow something that is very clearly bigoted to happen annually?
There would quite rightly be outrage if the EDL marched through Edinburgh so why...
I'm sure someone will correct me, but whilst reading the horrific news from Norway this morning, it struck me that these types of crimes always seem to be committed by facist white supremists or other right wing nutters, never lefties.
I do realise that Uncle Joe wasn't exactly a pacifist, but...
We have Islamic extremeists grabbing the headlines the last decade, this was the first major attack by a White Supremasist if you can label him that. It's grabbed the headlines and I'd not actualy be surprised if he doesn't become a hero to some such is the messed up world we inhabit!What happens...

What do frequent fliers think of all this? A con by the airlines, or a legit way of rewarding loyal customers?
I fly all the time but every time I go for an upgrade I'm always way back in the queue and seldom get it.
As the Torie cuts start to bite and more people lose their jobs. Fuel and other other household bill rise. We will see more families effected to the extent that they need food parcels. In a country which is one of the richest on this planet and has people resorting to not feeding themselves to feed...
How, the **** in the year 2011 can this happen?
Surely this could have been anticipated and stopped.
Its a sad day when a junkies death is bigger news in this country than thousands starving to death, yet not at all surprising!
This has probably been mentioned before but I thought I'd mention it as I just used it for the first time.
I had to phone e2save about my mobile phone order at 10p per minute plus my network(Virgin) charge of 11p per minute.
I manage to get an 02......
I’ve never been to China but I’ve read a story by a man who has!
Do you think Deeks might send us a postcard?

Anders Breivik will be out and about in time for his 54th birthday.
No confirmation, as yet, of the cause of the explosion, however early signs suggest that a bomb is the most likely cause.
It's hit the centre of Oslo, wrecked government buildings and deaths and injuries have been reported. Current death toll is unknown.
