  1. 60% of trans young people self harm amd 40% have considered suicide in the past 12 months. They are the group at the highest risk for violence and sexual violence. 25% of trans people have experienced homelessness Sorry to hear you were irritated though.

  2. Amazing how people sneer at others who are struggling taking action to try and better their standard of living. Fucking good on the railway workers, the rich are getting richer and the workers are being shafted. Hopefully more sectors go on strike. f**k the tories and f**k brexit.

  3. Sorry for the quote ones self shite, but I'd like to elaborate a little. As said above, I was travelled to post to pillar during me youth. Sure, it was exciting, my mum and dad did everything for us, but money was never an issue (we never paid bills, just fucked off). I left my house (sister brought me up) at 17, when I made my first big wage. I was no Angel, taken drugs from 13. Kicking f**k out of anyone who looked at me with the wrong eye. Stabbed 3 times and had a real gun put to my head. That was my life....all before 18 yo. I found a beauty of my life when I was 19, from Dundee. She was a snobby girl, which I think to this day, she only went with me as I was a bad c**t and her family disapproved. We moved to Solihull, within 2 months I got again involved with the wrong crowd, 2 years and it finished, I never left as I was in the deep. The Dudley boys, used me as enforcer (something I'm good at). I moved back to Scotland after my debts were paid. That's when it really fucked up. For 10 years I had friends, dying left right...I can't take it anymore. I bought a wee house in Auchtermuchty...done it up (4 years), then f**k off round the world. I was never coming back but also never going to settle (how could I) Then I met Mou. Took on her daughter(hate that term)(which doesn't happen here, I saw she was raw, I saw she was sad....I became her father). I now have 2 more little fuckers, that call me dad. I cry most days...on my own. My wife cuddles me, my kids kick me. i think, I'm better here.... Did I tell the story of me getting hold upped in Phnom Penh, the boy was not old enough, I just walk over the street and hit the gang member in the puss. I give no fucks (I really do). but I do love you! You'll never get better hugged until you hug from @SlipperyP Gave a great day,

  4. You do realise this dispute is with Network Rail and nothing to do with ticket examiners (or drivers). That said had you seen the Kunt Shapps on tv this morning it's an easy mistake to make given he must have mentioned drivers and examiners wages about half a dozen times. Classic divide and conquer Tory tactics of course but it seems to be seaping into the public's minds.

  5. Both of these things are wrong. Like you, I'm against VAR anyway, but if we accept that it leads to more correct decisions, then effectively building it into our league system that two teams get more correct decisions than everyone else fundamentally undermines the fairness of the competition. Your point about different referees for different games is a facile one. This is about those running the competition deciding to apply higher standards to games involving certain teams. It's equally wrong that some FA Cup games have VAR and others don't. Or that some games have a Fourth Official and some don't. Sport isn't just about an overall total of how much information the officials have. Sport has to be fair. Teams in the same competition should be competing under the same conditions. Bascially this is the SPFL saying that when Rangers go to St Mirren they can expect the game to be officiated better than Hearts can in the same fixture. This isn't a subjective thing like who the referee is and whether you rate them or not. They're just getting a better service. Every other week. Defending it is bizarre.

  7. As regards decisions, and I'm biased here, the one made by the club to invite a core committee of four of us to form a Steering Committee to plan and manage the 150th Anniversary goods, dinners, exhibition, etc., has probably been the correct one as it would have been a very considerable undertaking whilst also dealing with the day-to-day running of DFC. The Chairman and Board of Directors have thus far endorsed all that we have presented and have underwritten the initial costs so absolute fair play to them - we are collectively trying to ensure that this big year for the club is accorded due status. The return to the 'liquorice allsort' design which was first aired in season 1964/65 was an easy one and we were delighted with what Macron offered - the supplier has high hopes that it will also sell well amongst football strip enthusiasts. Another couple of merchandise pics to whet the appetite:-

  9. There’s no getting away that it’s not what we wanted, but, and it’s a big but, we were 10th in the league last season because we lost so many mental goals. If he is going to come in and help to stabilise us for a year I’ll take it. Bottom line is if he is Ryan Christie great, if he is Adam Montgomery pish.

  10. Just seen the stats for Crunchie on twitter, 4 spells at the club, 355 appearances, 60 goals. The thing that makes the wee magic man so special to me is, when I used to speak to him in the Leapark in Grangemouth you could tell how much the club meant to him and how much he relished every single one of those appearances. He was basically living all of our dreams.

  19. There's no doubt in my mind that the UK needs huge constitutional reform and a large part of my desire for independence is that I don't believe the UK is capable of it. All the personality, policy and process arguments are moot here and it's usually a failure to want to debate the crux of independence which leads folk to warble on about ferries, currency and borders. The UK is run on the basis that there's little or no point trying to win the votes of anyone other than about 33% of England. It's a winner takes all approach, it suits already well established people, institutions and does little or nothing for the rest. Boris and Brexit are just symptoms not the disease, along with the pork barrel politics of only offering funding to tory councils and then the naked bribery/corruption of the levelling up funding. Maybe things won't be better if we're independent, I don't think so but it is a possibility. However, things cannot get better for Scotland within the UK as there is absolutely no advantage to be gained and therefore no incentive for any UK party to make it so. f**k the Tories (always) but look at Labour to prove this is the case. We constantly hear that Labour cannot win without Scotland. But their policies and attention is laser focussed on the brexity/hard on crime/middle or norf England. We are rich, we are educated, we are ideally geographically placed and have all the components to make a successful independent state. It will be hard, we will make mistakes but it will in the end be far better for the people who live here to decide how and by whom we are governed.

  22. The SNP can't state that there is a zero tolerance approach to sexual harassment then come out fully supportive of this guy's nonce-like behaviour. He was making unwanted sexual advances to someone almost half his age and most importantly in a junior position. It would be wrong if it was a manager hitting on a admin assistant on a works night out and it's wrong when it's a politician. By far the worst part of it is the SNP backing for him.

  25. I think MPs (MSPs too) should be held to a higher standard. I also expect the political party of which I’m a member to impose discipline more rigorously and not behave ‘like any other (political) party’. To that end I’d be happy for him to have been thrown out the SNP group and asked to resign his seat. It’s been a long time since I’ve been 19 but I imagine someone as young as that being sexually mistreated would be very traumatic.

  30. I'd posted this in the Clach thread, thought it was worth repeating in here too. Apparently it was local neds at night and not from the preseason Elgin match last weekend. It's terrible that Clach have to put up with such vandalism but it is good to hear that MacGregor and Ross County have been able to help out a nearby club in this way.

  34. Dear oh dear !! That really is all the segregationists have. They accuse those who want integration of children of all faiths and none as somehow being the ones propagating sectarianism and division. It's akin to calling those who don't want children of different ethnicity educated separately racists and , as we head towards the middle of the 21st century, this crazed Orwellian doublespeak simply won't wash anymore. In this warped and shrinking little world view there simply is no room for progress and enlightenment. And talking of enlightenment I wouldn't use such an offensive and frankly stupid analogy regarding women in a post about segregated education given the Catholic church's woeful attitude to women's rights in general and reproductive rights in particular.

  35. No. This idea keeps cropping up, but to my knowledge the club have never unveiled a signing that way and I don't think they ever will. A signing is a big story. They get loads of hits, likes, comments and people interacting with them on social media. Every time they do one their profile and popularity goes into orbit. A strip release has a similar impact. If they combined the two events they wouldn't get double the hits because there are only so many Falkirk fans in the world that would respond. So it's better for them to keep big stories for different days. Besides which, AFAIK there are no signings imminent and there certainly aren't any stories being held back for the kit launch.

  36. Seeing as this is the Queen's (platinum) jubilee year, here is the programme from the Coronation Cup Final of 1953. Probably much to the chagrin of the organisers the finalists were Celtic and Hibs, they had more than likely been hoping for Rangers and Arsenal, both of whom got knocked out at the first stage, by Manchester United and Celtic respectively. Celtic beat Manchester United in the semi finals, 2-1, and Hibs crushed Newcastle United by 4-0, the same score as United had crushed the Dons. Tottenham Hotspur were the other team, losing to Hibs in a replay in the first round. Celtic enhanced their cup tradition, winning 2-0 at Hampden in the final, Mochan and Walsh scoring. And Hibs enhanced their reputation of losing finals. 117,060 in attendance. Some weel kent faces on both sides, Hibs famous five, Tommy Younger in goals, Bobby Combe in the half back line. Celtic had Bobbys Evans and Collins, Jock Stein (pictured wearing an Albion Rovers strip?), Charlie Tully, the aforementioned Neil Mochan, Bertie Peacock and John McPhail. Neither Lord McGowan nor Sir George Graham look particularly pleased to have their photos taken and Jimmy McGrory looks like he's been caught doing something illicit, whereas Fred Denovan looks quite pleased with himself. The advert on the back page would suggest whisky - or at least this brand - was rationed/in short supply. The usual format of a Hampden cup final programme from the 40s to the 60s. Opening bid on eBay is £99.99 (plus £2.90 p&p), and there are 5 days left for bidding, should you be interested. ETA: Went for £210.00
