I just watched the latest Louis Theroux follow up on the Westboro Baptist Church. It's his 3rd visit since 2006 and his first in almost a decade.
It was interesting to see the way the dynamic of the group has changed since the death of Fred Phelps. On one hand their preaching rhetoric has become...
This makes for very depressing reading:
What can be done to better address what is a devastating issue for so many people?
This starts from a post on another thread and a couple of PMs.
I am a great believer in the power and importance of local votes.
What are other people views? Does it matter?
Well, it's almost here!!
The unbelievable is about to happen tomorrow.
I wonder how it's all going to pan out.
Whatever happens, it's going to be a roller coaster. Hold on................
I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin.
So what does the future hold for Labour?
What with the exposure of Momentum promised by Channel 4 Dispatches already to be viewed tomorrow night, Panorama will...
I'm a lifelong Labour voter, but, having heard the crap coming out of the Tories this week, I am seriously considering voting 'Yes' in the referendum if that is going to be the future.
I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts.
Breaking news that John Leslie has been charged with sexual offences that happened in 2008
Another celebrity named and shamed before trial
South African anti-apartheid activist and singer Johnny Clegg has passed away.
Starting from the 60s, he really put his neck on the block to fight the injustice in his country.
RIP "the White Zulu".
admin please move to dugout if it's more fitting.
doesn't need to be football or Hibs related but what is one thing (per post) that you believe but others might find controversial or at least is an unpopular opinion?
I'll start with;
Sunshine on Leith at 2007 league cup final was better...
do we have any knowledgeable employment law gurus among the .netters? Been looking into something and just trying to get as many views as possible as I can't quite find a definitive answer :greengrin
Yes, I know there are more "relevant" websites but .net has always been a great (sometimes...
Apologies for another thread but after last night's results be interesting to see whether people think it will actually happen.
Will we leave on the 31st October?
Pendulum ride snaps in India killing at least 2 people and seriously injuring many more. Absolutely horrific.
Such a failing of modern engineering should never occur....
Why should a town (Broxburn) be locked down for 4 hours because of this?
It boils my blood that this neanderthal pish is allowed, it's 2019 ffs.
It's international fact checking day! And to celebrate, fact checking site the ferret has collated their results from the past year.
By comparison, the SNP (Scot Labour results were broadly similar).
Wee Nicky doesnt know if she's coming or going just now .
We need a referendum because were being dragged out of the EU #castironmandate
Now she's not even sure an independent Scotland will join the EU :rolleyes:
The General Election is not about independence says Nicola
Was just listening to The Skids this morning. What a band! For those of you lucky to be alive when punk rock was in it's prime (sex pistols, the damned etc) I have a couple of questions. Did any of you have any experiences meeting any band members? My Dad had his pint nabbed by Joe Strummer!
Does he belong in jail or are his civil liberties being breached?
Why has this story appeared?
It's a total non-story, but it seems to me that it's designed to make sure that as many euro-sceptics as possible don't vote Labour.
The Donald being the first American president to step foot in North Korea is an amazing historic moment and one that could lead to lasting peace between the North and South.
Quite how the media will try and spin this into a negative story will be interesting to see.
Just started watching the documentary on Netflix.
Such a sad but interesting story. I hope we find out the truth of what happened one day.
FWIW, I think the parents know a lot more than they make out to believe.
Clearly they don't value our business in Scotland.
Talking about America's war for Independence. ' Our forces secured the Airports'. In 1775 there were no airports, there wasn't even any planes. And this clown is leader of the 'Free World'. We have him in the White House and Boris heading for N0. 10. Heaven help us.
With lots of negative threads about whatís going on at the moment thought it might be interesting to hear positives of Scotland being in the union. Regardless of your views on independence it would be churlish to pretend there arenít any positives to the union.
I just want to hear the positives,...
Anyone else have these problems? My old man is from the old brigade who thinks pull yourself together is the answer. Never used to be like this and time in the army hasn't helped. However, I'm not afraid to admit things and feel no stigma in being affected by this.
Just wondering if other...
Does anyone who isnít a sexual deviant actually give a ****?
Most, if not all, of us balk at senseless violence, cruelty, sexual assault and paedophilia, but occasionally there are incidents which defy all logic, usually criminal, but not necessarily, which I think need further examination.
I'll start the ball rolling with the following example.
I thought it would be nice to have a thread about the positive things that happen in the world for a change.
Post your heartwarming stories in here.
First up - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24170670 :thumbsup:
This is a damning article, but it won't change anything. The world today is deeply depressing.
"I was Boris Johnson’s boss: he is utterly unfit to be prime minister".
A school pupil in Aberdeenshire has been suspended for 3 weeks for stating that he believes there are only 2 genders.
I'm finding the whole discourse on...
Thought we could get an early snap shot of things to come. Based on this totally scientific and ultra accurate polling method. :wink:
Look at who were are left with Larry, Curly or Mo. Absolute disgrace.
Some of the best input from the audience I have seen in years.
A few of us non separatists/nationalists correctly asked snp separatists/nationalists current up to date questioning of snp spats/international developments and were completely ignored.
Ignorant or deliberate snp brigadoonist?
****ing idiots. Doesnít do anything to help the cause. Half of them are students who were born with a silver spoon up their arse.
Brexit Party told to identify where all its donations came from. Or lose them.
(Edit: Sorry for the clickbaity title. My mistake.)
We all know why Ingish votes Labour.
He's told us as nauseum that despite their falling popularity and, it seems, relevance, he supports them because they "seek to protect the NHS, benefits, provide quality homes for those who're out-with the housing market, jobs, pensions and to change the UK...
Thought I might as well start this off with the revelation that the LDs are now WINNING in the latest opinion poll. People have short memories I guess.
Donít want to give away anything but having watched the first few episodes of the chernobyl mini series on sky and seeing the hospital scenes I would rather it just wiped us out than left people suffer like that.
Anyone have any stories from chernobyl? Morbid however itís something that is...
