will the rovers return survive without her world-famous hotpots
The people convicted of Meredith Kercher's killing in 2007 are waiting for the verdict on their appeals against their conviction. One of these cases where there has either been a horrendous miscarriage of justice or there's two people who cant accept responsibility for their actions.
I read a...
"No, he's never attended any meetings with me"
Film of best man in attendance at meeting
"He was there because I bumped into him on holiday"
Picture of business card "Adviser to Liam Fox"
"He's not my adviser"
I found this article on the BBC news website.
It raises some interesting points.
My good god.
In which century do we live?
Just seeing about it on the news right now. :bitchy:
This one is about a kid called Alan who was kidnapped by men and they tried to behead him but he was found alive, and was in a coma for 1 month. Other stories about kids aged very young (6,7 etc) maybe younger or older than that being...
R.I.P. Steve, lost his battle against pancreatic cancer aged 56.
I'm going to offer the otherwise generally pretty good Gene Hackman. Two nominations:
1. Terrible, terrible Polish accent in 'A Bridge Too Far'
2. Unbelievably bad portrayal of a drunk man in 'The Pelican Brief'
Worrying that the Home Secretary can be incompetent or ill-informed regards matters relating to her job. Hardly a good basis on which to be lecturing others on immigration issues and human rights legislation.
Think this epitomises everyones feelings on cheap flights, warning, a few sweary words :greengrin
no one drives at 70 anyway so its just common sense imo, I hope Scotland follow ....
Doesn't say yet who killed him, but he's deid :agree:.
Due to be executed tomorrow despite mounting evidence that the conviction was unsafe. Interesting viewing when considering the pros and cons of the death penalty.
Bin Laden is dead.
Obama to speak in next 5 mins!!
Any type 1 Diabetics on here?
This riles me, I'm a type 1 diabetic, makes us sound as if we're strutting around with Armani insulin, it's not designer insulin, it's "Analogue" insulin, it makes living with type 1 diabetes a doddle compared to what we...
This is quality.http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=GB#/watch?v=9S48A0J7T84
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 &...

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...
