  1. I’d rather take the risk of an independent Scotland running our own affairs than hope the Tories stop being Tories

  4. a couple of weeks ago I was collecting a few pallets out of a place in an industrial estate and I heard a bit of commotion outside the truck. I looked down and the magpies had a little green parakeet pinned down. I chased them off and gathered him up. They had pulled his tail feathers off and he was terrified.he wouldn't have lasted much longer. He had escaped from a bird shop in the estate but the owner only returned my call when I was 30 miles away. He sounded like a dick so I sent him a message later saying I was fond of the bird and wanted to keep it so he said go ahead. Now we are best pals. His tail feathers are growing back already.

  5. I voted Yes in 2014 not because I'm a nationalist or a patriot by any means but because I thought - in the long run - it'd be better than what we had. Next time the issue will be the opposite - I'll be voting Yes again, not because I think it'd be better than the status quo but because it can't surely not be any worse. I can understand why some people who are politically similar to me voted No. I can understand that some people felt it was a big risk and despite being open to it just couldn't quite be won over. The ambiquity of our EU membership didn't help and the currency stuff were a mess. The currency union proposal wasn't that bad an idea but explanation of it was awful. Another reason I can understand are the people who said words to the essence of "We understand the changes and aspirations of Yes but we want to see them on a British scale." I got that. It wasn't enough to shift me to No, but I got the thinking behind it. That seems so unobtainable now. Labour offered real change on a British scale under Corbyn and it got smashed - there's just no appetite for that type of change in England which seems to only be interested in becoming more right wing, more insular and a lot more nasty. Even look at the Cameron government in September 2014 - it's probably not far from where Starmer is now. That's the only alternative now. In 2014, some said that a Yes vote was a jump in the dark and looking back it was to some degree. Today a No vote is also a jump in the dark...into a ravine! The UK isn't just a sad, lonely and bitter place it's somewhere that revels in that sad, lonely, bitterness and wants to get sadder, lonelier and even more bitter. It'll be a Yes from me.

  14. It's about time we go a chance to vote, it's what the Scottish electorate clearly want having mandated our government on more than one occasion. As a left leaning, socially inclusive country, Scotland has no place in this world shackled to the right wing establishment of the UK.

  15. I try to live my life by "don't be a c**t". Thinking trans people should be allowed to live as their true selves is in my opinion not being a c**t. Don't be a c**t. I'm gay, and like football. I'm also autistic. So I know what it's like to be different. If you spend your life protesting about other people's genitals you're a c**t. Don't be one

  16. Things are going to get worse in the UK The Westminster Government is corrupt, They’re becoming more and more extreme. Just look at the US, that is where we are heading, absolutely no doubt about it Even if Labour magically get into power, they won’t roll back the damage the Tories have done or replaced the rights they have removed from us They’ll maintain the status quo until the Tories get back into power again. Tories think food banks are a good thing and people who use them deserve to be poor They hate the poor They hate the disabled They hate human rights They hate the NHS They hate state pensions They hate public service They hate scrutiny. Just look what’s happening with Channel 4 for daring to call them out They've changed their laws on protesting They want to make it harder for people to vote They don’t believe in society People are things to be used They hate people like me and you. It’s that simple This ain’t hyperbolic stuff here. Johnson has just literally lifted the cap on bankers bonuses, while telling us chumps we need to pay more in taxes. Staying in the UK shouldn’t even be a debate, we should be getting shot of these c***s pronto for our own sake.

  17. Is it only greed when the people asking for a payrise are in the 30-50k p/a bracket? Inflation is at 9.1% and many professions such as doctors and teachers haven’t had a pay rise that has kept up with CPI in years. We have the highest percentage of people in full time employment using the benefit system than ever before, does that sound like the kind of thing that should be happening in a country with the 5th highest GDP in the world? Did you make similar posts when the CEOs of NatWest, Lloyds, HSBC and Barclays were taking 7 figure bonus’ at the same time as plunging the country in to a recession? We are currently in the situation where Boris Johnson is going to try and remove the cap on bankers bonus’ set by the EU, where a bonus could be no more than 100% of their fixed annual pay. Even if every single doctor and nurse in the UK got a 20% pay rise, it still wouldn’t come close to the amount of tax that companies like Amazon evade paying in the UK. Or the numerous amount of tax loopholes opened by Gordon Brown which are still being exploited today. Or the billions of pounds funnelled through the City of London to hide Russian oligarchs wealth? Is that not more worthy of your attention? The Russians call it ‘Londongrad’ or the ‘London Laundromat’ f**k sake, the UK happily allow them to wash their money here, and we’ve got people begrudging a nurse a 10% rise on a £30,000 wage . Goebbels would be proud of the job this Government have done to make the public look the other way.

  19. Not for me. I've been watching him for around a year and in my (admitttedly inexpert) opinion he's a cracking player. He's easily the pick of the bunch that Ian Fergus signed and has as much potential at his age that Kingsley and Fulton had. Seriously. An There's no guarantees of course. He might not develop as expected, he might not apply himself, he might be unlucky with injuries. Young players are always a gamble. One poster on here who has football connections messaged me some time back to ask about him, saying that all the big clubs were keeping an eye on him. I found out that was true at one game when a guy asked me for teamlines and it turned out he was a Man Utd scout there to see Carroll. I rate the guy very highly and would have been raging if we hadn't signed him. Now he has his chance and it's up to him to prove he's worth it.

  20. I think the purpose of this thread by the person who started it was for people to have the opportunity to leave their condolences, show their respect and share their memories of Andy Goram. If people have a different view, I’d suggest not posting on this thread. Point scoring is not appropriate.

  21. Two season tickets bought after a year away. Pledged I wouldn’t go back when Deans and Holt were still at the club. Not going to pretend like everything is perfect but we’ve got a new board, a proper football manager who knows what he’s doing and fans unbelievably sticking by the club in unreal numbers. COYB xxx

  25. This statement keeps being trotted out and it’s just bizarre. What do you expect to hear? “We tried to sign the big lad but he decided to go to Partick, then we went for that wee quick guy but he wanted £700 a week and we could only offer £500. Now nobody else wants to talk to us because they know they are, at best, our third choice”. No club ever has, or ever will publicly discuss signing targets before they are signed so I’m really not sure where the complaints about ‘deafening silence’ come from or what else they expect. When you read transfer rumours in the press it’s all from the big clubs and it’ll either be made up or leaked from an agent who has an agenda to push up the price of their client. The media isn’t interested in our level of football so that’s not going to happen. Murray has said in interviews that he knows where we need to strengthen. That’s as much as can be said.

  32. These issues could easily be solved to some extent by allowing a limited number of trialists in the group stages of the league cup. It's absolute madness that this hasn't been changed yet. The group stages were brought in to provide a competitive replacement for friendlies and yet you can't play players you're looking at signing. Typical of the clowns that run our game.

  35. Scotland can fuk right off if it votes No again. Not having the balls to look after our own affairs and build a strong forward looking nation cements us as a region of England. All the no voters saying but but but is just swivel eyed pish. Scottish people have absolutely no control of who its national government is on the national stage. England will and always will decide that and frankly its embarrassing. Another no vote, based on the utter contempt we have been shown by the UK government since last referendum solidifies the Scottish people as the most servile population on the planet.
