  1. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Was about to post that. Reported in The Telegraph. Strange.
  2. When will indyref2 happen?

    Need help for an argument on another forum. Can someone provide me with a link to a list of the specific powers that are being taken away post Brexit. Cheers.
  3. Aberdeen European Tour 2018/2019

    Booked up flights. Had to get flights because I'm heading up to Belladrum on the Friday so an early flight means I can get to Inverness by mid-day. Fckn expensive though. At least I don't have to budget for the next round and I've got a mate down there who's a Burnley fan so free digs!
  4. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Nobody knows. The money we 'save'by not contributing to the EU could be wiped out and more by a failing economy post Brexit. Or it might not. We'll find out soon enough if we do actually leave.
  5. Should Weed Be Legal?

    Here we go again Another attempt at legalisation. Another failure probably.
  6. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I see that May has promised £350m a week to the NHS (in England) and is trying to pass it off as a Brexit dividend despite saying taxes will have to rise to pay for it and the bank of England telling us that Brexit uncertainty is costing the economy £400m a week. Although the Express must use the Seville calculator because they are reporting £600m a week.
  7. General Politics Thread

    Aye, reading through his Wikipedia entry is a fair eye opener. An amazing level of cuntishness. For folk who can't be bothered clicking the link, here is blocking list. Although Chope has himself sponsored 47 private members bills[14] (as of 2017) he has blocked others which were previously believed to have widespread public support. On 12 March 2010, he was responsible for the blocking of a bill to protect poor countries from "vulture funds", despite his party's support for the bill.[15] On 11 October 2011, Chope raised an eleventh-hour objection to the Hillsborough debate taking place because he believed a debate about MPs' pensions was more important. Cries of "shame" echoed around the chamber and Labour MP Jamie Reed said that the perpetrator should be "named and shamed" for raising the objection.[16] In December 2013 Chope objected[17][18] to the second reading of the Alan Turing (Statutory Pardon) Bill in the House of Commons. Because of this, the Government decided to act under the royal prerogative of mercy. On 24 December 2013 Queen Elizabeth II granted Turing a free pardon.[19][20] He came under criticism in late 2014 for repeatedly blocking a bill that would ban the use of wild animals in circus performances, justifying his actions by saying "The EU Membership Costs and Benefits bill should have been called by the clerk before the circuses bill, so I raised a point of order".[21] On 28 November 2014, Chope (a private landlord),[22] alongside Philip Davies, the Conservative MP for Shipley, filibustered a bill intended to make revenge evictions an offence.[23] In October 2015, Chope, Davies and Conservative MP David Nuttall filibustered a private member's bill that would have placed restrictions on hospital parking charges for carers.[24] On 15 June 2018, Chope blocked the passage of a private member's bill that would have made upskirting a specific offence. Chope's actions drew immediate criticism from fellow MPs, including some in his own party. The prime minister, Theresa May, also expressed her disappointment at the objection.[25] On the same day, Chope and Davies forced a delay to the final debate on a bill which would have improved the oversight of the use of force in mental health units.[26][27]
  8. Portugal v Spain

  9. General Politics Thread

    The excuse seems to be that him and a few other Tory MPs have a long history of blocking bills which they believe are being rushed through parliament without proper debate and scrutiny which they believe could end up with vague or badly worded laws open to legal challenge. Still makes him look like an utter c**t in this case.
  10. When will indyref2 happen?

    I'd say 20 years or 12 if it's a Dundee generation. Does Dundee still have a problem with underage pregnancy?
  11. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Or it might never happen which is what I still think will happen. Or not happen.
  12. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    2 champs in one post. Well done. If I wasn't a content simpleton I'd have taken offence to these 2 posts. You don't need to have intelligence to worry about things you cannot influence. You need the intelligence to work out how to deal with the aftermath. I'll see what happens and get on with my life. Simply.
  13. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Slightly (which is why I dip in and out of this thread) but I don't expect the Armageddon that the remainers are predicting or the land of milk and honey that the Brexiteers are predicting. There will be problems and opportunities and I will cope with them like I have coped with all the shit that's been thrown at me in my life. I know that the person who has most control over my own destiny is myself. It's been like that most of my life and I expect it will be the same for the rest of it.
  14. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I can't be the only person who doesn't give a f**k if Brexit happens or not. My life will go on it's merry old way no matter what happens.
  15. The Official President Trump thread

    No matter how much I dislike the guy and think he's a total imbecile, no-one can deny that this meeting was a tremendous achievement, even if nothing was agreed. Simply meeting on cordial terms is something to be celebrated. What happens next is anyone's guess though. Hilary is probably kicking a cat somewhere.
