We were told in the 80s "in 5 years you will know someone who has been infected with HIV" - many of us scoffed!
They called it the 'gay plague' or 'natural justice for junkies' - many of us self righteously agreed.
Like war, AIDS kills and devastates lives and leaves the bereaved thinking...

Reading the "Northern Rock" and "In this together" thread I have some questions for the financially savvy regarding recessions.
1. What happens to the money supply during an economic downturn, presumably money is not physically destroyed, so what happens to it? I assume more of it is...
I'm no fan of the EDL but, if this report is accurate, it worries me slightly. Arrests made "to prevent a breach of the peace"?
WTf. The government sell it to Branson for tens of millions less than the tax payer basically paid for it and tell us it's a good deal. How so? ****ing raging. What was the hurray? Coud we not have held onto it and sold it after when there is less turmoil in the money markets.
We are all in this...
You go to your doctor with a cough, cold, flu or sore throat. Would you expect to be prescribed an antibiotic – remember they're now free, so why not?
McEwans Export is it still brewed in Edinburgh? Doesn't taste as good as it used to.
Allegedly, Gaddafi has been captured in Sirte. Wouldn't fancy being him at all...
I've only just found out about this story and, if even only half-true, it is to Scotland's eternal shame.

From the "About the Test" tab;

With the benefit of hindsight it was a damn good 7 years: stable and strong economy, good progress made with the Irish peace process, no deeply divisive social issues such as the miners strike or poll tax, no wars and a PM who was a pretty decent chap all told, certainly not polarising like...
Apparently the FIFA Poppy Ban is all the fault of the Germans. (according to the Daily Mail) Are the rules not the same for everybody regarding symbols on football shirts ?
1 for 1000. Who got the better deal?
What a woos. :rolleyes:
Ruth Davidson. A young, openly gay woman, who was only elected as list MSP in May.
I don't think she'll make that much difference to their election performances up here, but will be interesting to see what she brings to the table.
Sitting in the boozer and this nonsense is on the box on mute. The number of adults in the crowd not accompanying kids is crazy. Are these people just reaching out towards something to believe in the same way as those of a religious faith do?

A horrible and unfortunate accident you might say.

I do hope the parties aren't using the issue as a political football. It's far too important for that.
Winter is upon us thick fog causing the devastation
Thoughts on this? Initially I'm dead against it on principal of "you cannae dae that!", but to be honest, what else will make a dent in this countrys cancerous relationship with drink? I don't want my kids growing up in a country that says you're a weirdo for not having a drink when you're out.
