  1. Reasons to be Cheerful

    Ffs its a sweeper.
  2. Ancestry DNA

    I am certain that a few years ago there was a documentary about Ancestry.com, stating that it was owned by the Church of Latter day Saints a.k.a. the Mormons. The information that people were using in their search for their ancestors was held on a huge database and this information was used by the Mormons to baptise dead relatives by proxy. It was pretty weird. I have searched for a link but unfortunately cannot find one.
  3. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    So more thieving by westminster then, to stop us Scots from getting too powerful for our own good.
  4. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    The copy and paste didn't work out too great. But am I reading this correctly? Devolved powers can be held by westminster for up to 5 years? If so come on folks. Lets do something.
  5. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Commons debates Lords amendment 25 EU Withdrawal Bill House of Commons Parliament HoC Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington is speaking to Lords amendment 25 and related amendments, which deal with the devolved nations. He says that originally, the idea was that Westminster would take powers devolved from the EU by default, before handing them to the nations and regions. These devolution matters "have been discussed between myself, my ministers and my officials," he says and adds that the government has made "very substantial compromises" to adjust to concerns raised by Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The revised approach now means that devolved powers will go directly to the devolved legislatures in Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast. However, he adds, in certain circumstances the government will seek to take these powers. These powers will be subject to a two year sunset clause, he states, and regulations made under these powers will be able to last for five years.
  6. The Official President Trump thread

    I think that this must be seen positively. Two bampots that are a threat to world peace have spoke to one another and possibly sorted out their differences. There will have been assurances made that will benefit both countries, the earlier McDonalds meme an example, which hopefully will bring us closer to a peace agreement. Trump and Kim have probably realised they need some friends, after pissing a lot of countries off lately, and have decided to become good pals. Hope so. The critic in me thinks this has got a lot to do with money. I can't help but think that way, but hopefully peace wins.
  7. When will indyref2 happen?

    They are thieving b*****ds. It took me a long time to realise it and clear my mind of the brainwash that was educated to me as a child, but I believe england relies far more on the other nations of the union than it likes to admit. Without Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, england would be fucked. They are the bully at the gate stealing our dinner money and play piece. westminster is fucking shite. I despise it.
  8. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    The obvious reply would be, "Is Gman the father?" But I bet it is more likely that the dispute was about you bottle feeding your bairn milk instead of Irn Bru.
  9. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    It worries me. england voted for this and their politicians who effectively rule us are incompetent. For goodness sake, earlier this week one of their lords who championed brexit now seeks a residency permit in France. We are being made total arses of, by that I mean the whole uk population. Why are we, Scotland, prepared to put up with this shit any longer? Shove the union up yer arse. Leave england to wallow in their own self destruction, and let Scotland prosper from their downfall.
  10. When will indyref2 happen?

    I must admit I was a bit pissed off the other week due to a march (Pride) down union street Aberdeen. It made my bus late. However, if it were an Independence march then I am sure I would have joined in and enjoyed it. Hopefully pissing off a few unionists waiting for a bus.
  11. When will indyref2 happen?

    Possibly a sign of the current mess the uk is in with brexit arrangements.
  12. Reasons to be Cheerful

    Don't get too hopeful. Looks a wee bit clockwork orangey. Were they wearing white overalls and bowler hats? As for the Fosters, are you sure it wasn't milk with knives?
  13. things you arent so proud of

    Killing our land by use of plastics. War.
  14. Quick Question Thread

    So I have been munching on a cows vagina then? Sounds familiar...
  15. Votes for prisoners

    I am still of the opinion that while in prison they should not be able to vote, part of their punishment. Even when they are close to release, they should not be allowed a vote. I can see your point that they will be back into society fairly soon, but if their sentence includes polling day then unfortunately they have missed out. Tough luck. If I happen to get arrested by the police on a Thursday and thrown into a cell, I don't get a cigarette never mind a vote. Ban arrests on polling day? If you happened to get jail and I got the tag, then that is a problem that the courts would have to sort. Different Sheriffs having the same powers, but dealing out different punishments happens. As I understand it, the tag is meant as an alternative to prison and I am of the opinion that tagged prisoners should not be allowed to vote either. They are still serving a sentence and being punished. Going back to the victim. The crime could last forever in the victims mind and have an impact on their lives for the rest of their days. The convict has at least the chance to sort out their life once released, hopefully with remorse and not commit any more offences. I respect your opinion and you have more experience on this subject than me, but I still believe that imprisonment is meant to be a punishment. Rehabilitation of offenders is important, but I do not think allowing them to vote should be part of it. I am happy to be proved wrong though.
