I'm not talking about the laudable aspirations towards equality and a brotherhood/sisterhood of man and woman, nor am I referring to individuals having the freedom to advance and better themselves without being told what to do.
I specifically mean being directed by the state in the...
RIP. One of the last great Scottish trade unionists. A socialist with a rare pragmatic streak and a...
What do people know about this from experience?
I've read up a bit on it on wikipedia in the last few mins. My mum has just been to A&E struggling to breath and got a chest xray. She was told it was identified in a chest xray almost two years ago but no one ever told her.
Was in the blood donation centre on Thursday giving my 3 monthly donation and got speaking to one of the nurses working there. She was telling me that they are really struggling at the moment for donations.
Was just innterested as to why people don't give blood? Obviously it's a personal choice...
I was reading an article about the Labour leadership in the Guardian, and there was an interesting comment from Dinae Abbot's campaign - basically that she is appealing to the 'black' vote (and women, and the left apparently).
So, my question is would it be acceptable for me to vote for somone...
Really dont know what to make of this
Doesn't surprise me it's in America tho
I think more info is needed to find out if the kids are in some sort of danger
Any other Hibs fans been up it?
How did you find it???
I walked up it Saturday just gone, wasn't as hard as I expect and got to the top in About 2 hours 20 mins...... then again that might be slow :confused:
Spoke to lots of different SPL fans ranging from Charlie Adams mate to Falkirk...
Having to work long hours for the time being anybody no any folk who do dog walking services thanks:thumbsup:
One for the old-timers here...
I Found It At Bruce's....:greengrin
Aye, twas compelling, but I'm still in the dark as to what it was all about.
Any of you bright young things care to explain in single syllables or less?
A friend of mine works in the Civil Service. He was talking about the possibility that he would never see the final salary pension he has been promised all these years.
He said, that the reason he had continued to work for the government was that despite poor pay, he realised that some of this...
The admins on the forum have kindly agreed to let me post this request, I am hoping some of you fellow Hibees would be kind hearted enough to sponsor me.
Tragically I lost my cousin to bowel cancer in May this year, he was only 25 years old - one minute he was perfectly healthy and then he...
I understand the logic behind putting a ban on men forcing women to wear the Burka but banning it altogether doesn't really make much sense. :confused:
Reports this morning (on Andrew Marr show) that a group of Liberals are thinking of siding with Labour against the 20% VAT rise. I wonder how fragile this unholy alliance actually is, and at what point it will no longer be sustainable.
Interesting statement indeed from Mr Cameron, good to see he is fighting scotlands corner in America and not just kissing obamas ass:grr:
Agree or disagree with releasing the guy, the decision was made for clear reasons and this cheap publicity stunt by cameron is pissing all over our...
What a ridiculous decision, which will only lead to more publicity for the BNP. :bitchy:
This is basic, basic military history that David Cameron - as with any self respecting Bristish citizen IMO - should know, or if HE doesn't know it, then his speech writing team should CERTAINLY be doing their checking before going ahead with such...
Since 'right' and 'left' are two very broad terms, I've expanded the poll to encompass the main variations of those ideologies as well as the 'centre'.
Hope this doesn't put Stokesy off his game...
Just another day in Dublin i believe.
When is a Government Minister not a Government Minister???
If your name's Nick Clegg then it turns out you're not really a Government Minister, you're just a silly boy :greengrin
Most of us have laboured under the long-standing illusion that when someone addresses the House of Commons, from...
anyone read anything about this, has to be one of the more bizarre miscarriages of justice i've ever read about. modern daw witch trials based on the accused liking heavy metal, black clothes and stephen king novels. HBO did a couple of documentaries about it, the first one from 1993 is actually...
A "rent-a-friend" service?? Really??
Are people really that "rushed" (aka bone idle) and had their face to face social skills so brutally numbed by the internet/Facebook-style phenomenons that there is actually a...
St. Swithin's day if thou dost rain
For forty days it will remain
St. Swithin's day if thou be fair
For forty days 'twill rain nae mair.
Today is St Swithin's day. :panic:
I have posted about this before. The way that broadcasters make trite remarks like "it's a chilly old day", or "it's a windy old night". God knows why, but they want to sound like the sort of people who have been wrapped up in cotton by their mummy's and sent out to play.
I realised I am a...
Somebody very close to me has had an ongoing struggle with an addiction to painkillers (both prescription and over the counter).
He acknowledges his problem and has admitted to me some very scary details about his dependance. It has cost him pretty much his quality of life and ruined all his...
recently lost my job:boo hoo: and the wife reckons I should think about becoming a driving instructor. I have heard stuff about "pay as you train" but wondered if anyone who has done it can give me their lowdown on how much they spent getting trained, how quickly they started earning and...
Anyone had it? What did you think? Where did you get it done?
The Benin Empire (1440–1897) was a pre-colonial African state in what is now modern Nigeria
Well it is trigger that’s the mane attraction and can you remember the name of Roy Rodgers dug?
A lot of people who post on here aren't really old enough to remember the last Tory government, or their wanton savagery in the early to mid-80s and their mindset of utter hatred for those who struggle to get...
Just a short rant.
It may just be as a result of ageing, but I'm find myself wanting to yell at the TV when the News comes on and interviews are held with members of the public to, presumably, "highlight the voice of the people". Last night for example:
Story on non-succession of catholics to...
Got sent the following article by a friend today as it's written by a guy he went to Uni with. Sounds like he had quite an adventure and gained an insight to how the World Cup affected Africans in different countries throughout the continent. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
How many builders does it take to build a school? Or 700 schools?
We won't know, because that's how many school rebuilds have just been scrapped by the Tories.
At least we think it's 700 schools. Because Michael Gove, the Tory Education Secretary has been telling schools they'll get rebuilt...
Watching "To Kill a Mockingbird" last night, it occurred to me just how well written, delivered and culturally significant (at the time, and maybe even today) the below speech is.
What are everyone else's favourite speeches/scenes from films?
I recognise this guy.
Return of the Spack?
I am in the process of refurbishing a flat and I want to knock down a wall so I can enlarge the kitchen area at the expense of a walk in cupboard.
It will need 2 or 3 new joists as it is a supporting wall, but the contractor has told me that I don't need to get formal planning permission.
Read about this today....
Very well faked like :agree:
The pics in the paper looked decent
