  7. As I previously stated I receive various benefits. I do however as also previously mentioned have a mental health condition. Which I've landed in hospital with many many times. A&E where you get treated like shite as you're seen as attention seeking and psych wards which are chronically underfunded and unable to actually provide the therapy and treatment needed. Then stories like the above, which suit the governments agenda, get published. I'm already ashamed that I've landed in a position where im depended on benefits. I don't smoke, have occasional drink but not regularly. My benefits top up my housing benefit, pay for food and fuel. Pay off debt from my marriage. I won't deny that it's a fairly generous amount on the surface. But I worry about what'll happen when my benefits are up for review. Will the assessor read my claim at 4.45 on a Friday having not met quota for rejections? When will my next serious relapse be, will I end up being talked off a platform again? Would I much rather have finished my degree, have 10yrs as a teacher under my belt and no failed marriage? Not dependent on the state. Very much so. But I'm a good mum, my kids are thriving and I'm doing an ou module. So for every news article about booze and fags you read and then pour scorn over. There's a mum, like me, committed to her kids, working hard on staying well and making their benefits go as far as possible.

Get it roond ye. - He is a swivel eyed f**k with an Iron Age serf's accent and looks like a water damaged Thunderbirds puppet. - His commentary is crap. He sounds like a village dunce who just scraped in to a second rate media course at a local polytechnic due to someone dropping out at the last minute - Rangers died. Sevco. Sevco. SEVCO Tell Pat Bonner the following; - Celtic are a hideous club. He doesn't have to say their full name all the time - He looks like an alcoholic Thundercat who is sleeping rough and probably smells of urine - He has the footballing insights of a juvenile foal - His jumpers are shit Tell Scott McDonald the following; - Get a fucking opinion you fence sitting c**t - Only wankers with questionable morals play for Celtic - He looks like a first draft drawing of a Disney Prince in one of the shitter Disney films Tell Steven Thompson the following; - Don't throw objects with a sharp end - Say something meaningful for once or don't bother coming in - I'll give you £100 if you physically assault Jonathan Sutherland - Rangers died

  11. It is an obviously good idea but is a huge challenge to vested interests and ingrained cultural attitudes we now have to home/land ownership and what we judge as a successful economy. LVT would, the more you increase the tax to meet the rental value of land, increasingly make land speculation no longer economically viable. I don't give a f**k about that but many do. At the moment it is viable to buy land and hold on to it, doing nothing useful with it and sit back and tick off the years as the value rises. Under LVT this wouldn't be possible , or less attractive. Of course it would still be possible to turn a profit on land by doing something useful with it like erecting buildings, drainage, utilities and working the land rather than absentee landlords in rural areas or land "developers" in urban areas hanging onto derelict land doing nothing with it. To Joe Public you would see your house value come down as the land element of that value would be less as it would attract a levy. In the short term that needs managed to avoid negative equity but long term it wouldn't matter that you sell your house for £30k less than what you thought you would as your next property will be similarly reduced to. Again though it requires a cultural shift in our thinking about what a house is for. Is it somewhere to live or is it an investment. Is it desirable to have such a large rental sector and such huge barrier to people getting on the property ladder? I would suggest not but that requires some joined up thinking in the planning of our social housing. There is also the vested interests of the land developers and estates who will be on the hook for many millions more of contributions to the public purse than they currently pay in. My politics are that this is all worth it and desirable but ti wont be without challenge to sell to people.

  16. Lol, my post was way more arsey than intended. Apologies P&B, I accept the well deserved abuse and accept my graduation from Kunt school! However, as has been pointed out, it really doesn't take a genius to figure out that restricting traffic to a single lane for distances far longer than required creates more traffic problems than necessary. It's a fucking pet hate of mine when you get the traffic vigilantes trying to enforce their own, entirely misguided, rules on other road users and sometimes creating unnecessary mayhem in the process!

  17. You've mentioned quite a few times on here that the Swiss think you're weird for having a bevvy to Scottish levels. I'd suggest you decide how much you like her company, if it's a lot then try and find a comfortable middle ground where you drink a bit less and she learns to be less of a condescending, nagging shrew who feels she can tell a grown man how he should behave. If it's a little then volley her square in the muff and take your keys back and go to the pub.

  22. From my biased point of view, over the piece yesterday, we deserved that win. The game was handled atrociously by Craig Thomson, but I'll come back to that later on. First half, bar the first 10 minutes, we were in total control of the match. Hayes and Paterson had a good duel down the one side with Hayes starting to get the better of him as the half went on. Flood and Shinnie controlled the play and we created a few chances. Considine could have placed his header better and Alexander made two or three impressive saves. I felt we got more out of Pawlett on the right wing in the first half, where him and McGhee had another good battle. Hearts were quite lop sided with very little on offer on their right wing, which I'd have targetted with Considine in there. I'm not quite sure how Pallardo survived without a red card, but fair play to Robbie Neilson for recognising it and changing. Hearts never really got going after a good start and got pinned back, it is to their credit that they stood firm. After the break, I felt we lost both Pawlett and Hayes early in the second half when they switched wings, and we never got Pawlett back into the game at all. McLean grew in importance as the game rumbled on, offering plenty in between the lines and opening the game well. Jack and Flood had their usual performance when played together, good enough to get by most teams but ultimately getting on top of each other. Considine and Taylor looked relatively decent together, the Juanma chance aside. Ward's save was tremendous and was a real game changer. Rooney really should have buried McLean's cross, a wee glance would have done it. McInnes made the right sub by changing Pawlett for Goodwillie, and made it at the right time. Frequently, McInnes gets criticism for being too late with his subs, yesterday was a good exception. The goal was a moment of madness by young McGhee, which we gladly took advantage of. In the end, it was a deserved victory. Earler in the season, after the game at Tynecastle, I criticised Hearts's cynical approach. I have to do much the same after yesterday. But Hearts are entitled to play that way, should they wish to. It is up to the referee to deal with that, and it is fair to say Craig Thomson woefully failed. The game was littered with cynical play, and for there to be 38 fouls in a game and no red cards is quite astonishing. The game at Tynecastle was exactly the same, with 41 fouls, which were more evenly split, and that was also very surprising to see no red cards that day. That Pallardo survived to be taken off was beyond belief, every person with half a brain in that ground yesterday could see he should have been dismissed for the challenge on Hayes on the touchline, and he had been lucky to escape without action for his challenge on Shinnie before his caution. Jordan McGhee was lucky to be on the park to handle the ball, as he should have been cautioned midway through the first half for wiping Hayes out in front of the Hearts dugout. And that Juanma escaped a caution in spite of the numerous niggly fouls he made was surprising. I am sure Hearts fans would say similarly that Thomson let us away with some foul play as well, which says a lot about the refereeing performance yesterday. It was atrocious, one of the worst for a long time, and I am not usually in the business of criticising referees. On the topic of Hearts, I mentioned previously that I felt that you were quite lop-sided with little threat up the right wing. I know that Walker is injured, but is there another winger you could play out there, perhaps Billy King? Too much of your play missed Nicholson out yesterday. When you got Nicholson involved, things started to be created, but after the good 15 minute spell in the second, he was lost again from the game. Also, I feel Juanma and Osman Sow are too similar when played against the better teams in the division. For great spells of yesterday's game, Juanma offered very little, while Sow more effectively held the ball up. Sow is a quick player but if he is holding the play up, he cannot turn and run as easily. A smaller, nipper option next to Sow would offer a better combination when playing against the better teams in the division. If that is not available, perhaps you could push Djoum in behind Sow and have two wingers, with Pallardo and Buaben sitting. I feel the front men didn't offer enough for you yesterday. Ultimately, it was pleasing to get three points out of a bruising encounter. Losing Reynolds will be a real blow from the game, but it was a good afternoon's work.

  27. McDonalds on Kilburn High Road, scene of a recent shooting, 9am, Sunday morning. I'd awakened with a brutal hangover, and sought some grease to try and ease the swally god's passage through me, so headed down to the local golden arches. The queue is a good mix of hangovers/fat messes/folk miserable at going to work on a Sunday. Best of all, it is absolutely silent. There's a single queue, three servers and we're all creeping forward, then just going to whichever one becomes free, cool. This woman and her three screeching kids then come stomping past the entire queue and just walks right up to the first available server, and all hell breaks loose. I was meant to be next in line, see this happening, and just don't give a f**k. It'll take two minutes, they'll f**k off, whatever. The rest of the queue are somewhat less calm. She's shouting and screaming about folk not being able to queue properly, the server looks like he's about to have a breakdown, two utterly enormous, behemoth bouncer types a couple back in the queue end up going off on a total roid rage growling at her, one of her kids starts popping balloons, while another starts trying to kick f**k out of one of the aforementioned bouncer types who can't quite figure out what to do, and as the manager appears from the office, they're met with screeching, a booming "CONTROL YOUR FAM" from a bouncer type and me looking like Mike Myers in the Kanye West "GEORGE BUSH DOESN'T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE" rant. The manager then proceeds to explain to this woman and her awful children that she is still barred for doing exactly what she's done this morning last month. And tells her to f**k off, she's then chucking napkins and straws and trays all over the places as her and Damien x 3 f**k off. I shuffle over to the server, manager apologises and the server explains that she got "knocked the f**k out" last time she tried it, so not quite so bad.

  28. So 3 years ago, I decided to take my skills as a professional software developer, and avid board/video game player, and make the game I always wanted. It's a 4-player strategy game that takes place in a sci-fi setting that mixes the deep strategy of board games with the awesome visual simulation that video games offer.. and it has online multiplayer! You can play by yourself against AI opponents, or join some friends in a free-for-all or human vs AI battle for the galaxy. This started as a "passion project" and I think that's one of the things that will help make this game stand out in the competitive world of strategy games. It offers a new experience to players in the genre due to its disdain for strict rule sets and the balance towards faster games. You can play an entire game in 50-75 minutes, or set the victory conditions to any one of the longer variants that can last really as long as you want them to. And what I mean when I say "disdain" for strict rule sets.. there are tons of events in this game that fundamentally alter how the game plays based on players choices. Politics and diplomacy are at the forefront of the games design, and the outcome of these political agendas can gimp construction of space fleets, lock down a planet from being conquered, create uprisings, the list goes on. Any of the games mechanics can, and will, be fundamentally altered throughout the game to create a unique experience every time you play. There is a ton more I can talk about, but if you're interested in seeing some of the general gameplay, check out this preview video I made. Thanks for reading!

  31. Best: Although maybe not as memorable as last year, still a number of high points for Saints fans to savour in 2015. Winning again at Celtic Park and with such a stunning goal marked the start of Danny Swanson making an impact and his influence set us on a run that culminated with Chris Kane racing clear to score the only goal at Pittodrie on the final day, mere seconds after his introduction. Between the Autumn international breaks this season we came from behind to beat United 2-1 despite playing with ten men for 65 minutes then followed it up by demolishing Aberdeen at Pittodrie. The best moment for me came just before those two games though, with the 3-1 win at Ibrox, the highlight being O'Halloran racing clear to score the third in front of our support. It wasn't the finest Saints performance of the year but has to be tactically one of the best, with extra satisfaction gleaned from, certainly my perception being, that their fans just expected to roll us over. Worst: Only really two games in my mind here, the meek surrender of the Scottish Cup at Palmerston or the home leg against Alashkert. Queen of the South played well and deserved to beat us and after the previous season, I could live with that one. Going out of Europe in 2014 because of one bad half of football out of eight hurt but not as much as losing to a horrible outfit like Minsk on penalties in 2013. After three Euro campaigns, I think Saints had to be aiming for more this season and although the draw was never as kind as the seeding might have suggested, we had a game we should have been winning. To lose 1-0 in the circumstances we did in Yerevan wasn't the end of the world but memories of the home leg bring about feelings of frustration as much as disappointment. We couldn't put a strong side out (a midfield containing Scobbie, Brown and Kane) but we got a goal and looked in enough control. The whole tie turned on 9 minutes in the second half. We lost Wright then Anderson to injury (the latter a fractured eye socket from an elbow that went unpunished) then a minute later a long punt over the top sees Scobbie, now in defence, sleeping and McKay missing and they score with one of only two shots on goal. Not that it means much but if we played them tomorrow, I'm almost certain we'd beat them fairly comfortably.

  34. Eat. Sleep. Seethe. Repeat. I've been to both our games at Ibrox since their collapse and I think the atmosphere, the missiles etc has got worse. There's even more of a skewed sense of injustice about their fans and the fact that their team is horrifically shite adds to this.

  37. Thanks for clearing that up Rab. To be honest I've lost a bit interest and found other things to do wi my Saturdays since our last competitive game 24th October You have to look back to the 10th October for our last Saturday home game which is bound to effect finances at any club at this level yet I hear there are cries for teams to play away from their own park. Sounds a reasonable suggestion but............... I'm sure we're not the only club maybes feeling pinch in this carp weather we having but moving games around renting facilities I don't think is the answer.(I'm sure there's fans who do home games only around the league) There's always gonnae be a fixture backlog wi the unpredictable winter weather. Clubs like ours and the likes of Threave, Dalbeattie,Preston,Selkirk and Gretna would miss the income, especially on a Saturday behind the bar, (no that we're a bunch of alkies lol but our bar stays open all day on a Saturday if at home) most probably a valuable source of revenue to the clubs listed above. Anyway how's the forecast looking for Saturday

  42. This thread just proves rangers are the most hated club in Scotland. The fact some fans try and defend the behaviour of sections of the rangers support is laughable. If I conducted myself in that manner in the street I would expect a swift visit to the cells, followed by swift slap from my dad when I got home. Do it in ibrox though and apparently it's acceptable. I put the allegations of missile throwing to a die hard rangers fan in my work, his response..........we are all making it up to get at rangers! Wow!

  43. You're correct , however , if you go about it the right way and don't be a total arsehole , you can sometimes at least get a deal. I saw a cracking Tissot chronograph in Goldsmiths in Braehead for £180 , when I went in to buy it , it turns out a new person had mixed the tickets up and it was meant to be £285. The sales person said they had to withdraw it from sale , which is the correct way to deal with a mis-priced item. Said I was disappointed not to be able to buy watch asked the girl to double check , then left. Got home emailed their customer services and within 2 days got a call from the store manager saying as a goodwill gesture they would sell me it for the marked price. Been on both sides of the fence , best approach is just don't be a dick to the staff and you'll get treated better.
