  1. 5-3 now. Am heading to Blackpool tomorrow for the rest of the tournament. US team making a better match of it than last year.
  2. In an independent Scotland, unnecessary flash photography will not occur.
  3. what a shambles stv player is. Titchmarsh wins.
  4. The UK's biggest annual punk festival/drinking session is next week: http://www.rebellionfestivals.com/line-up/days Some Scottish bands on there, as always.
  5. I recently received a powerpoint from a project manager which on one slide advised us that dates were both "moving out" and "moving to the right". i had to ask him about his aversion to the word "later".
  6. Maybe I'm wrong, Craig, but I thought more of a fine than bendtnar got for an incorrectly displayed sponsors logo. And without the delay.
  7. I thought the fine was insufficient. Feel free to register your opinion and go back to what you were doing.
  8. Yikes. That almost makes Scotland belong to Westminster ;^)
  9. 20 grand fine for pre world cup offence. No world cup suspensions, cheap fine, no rush to justice.
  10. A break from the existence of Andy Townsend is a big selling point.
  11. Yep. Book him for the dive and a second one for recklessly endangering the opponent (and himself).
  12. If there are no victors, what happened to everyone who got a bit richer with a bloody big loan, now once again absolutely confirmed as loans, that nobody seems to want back?
  13. Has he watched the last few minutes of that game?? When the referee suspended the rules of football to try to get Ghana through? A dodgy free kick followed by two offside players shooting from point blank range, leading to a penalty with (what would have been) the last shot. Sure, they're all against him.
  14. I really wish Andy Townsend would shut up.
  15. That hardly matches up with the example I gave. That would be as stupid as the wallpaper analogy.
  16. No idea why you ask me that. I was discussing an example in response to the wallpaper analogy a couple of pages back, and nothing else about limits. I think there are people excluded from the vote whose reasons for thinking they should have one are not simply dismisable as stupid. That was all. Now, lets find out from the rest of the thread whether Westminster or Holyrood are the best bet to eradicate poverty ...
  17. Some of those claims you make there about Dracula are bang out of order.
  18. Singing sensation Chris waddle apparently feels the need to ask, is Luis Suarez a good role model for kids? Seriously Chris, you haven't worked that out yet? No, he's a footballer, in between suspensions anyway, and possibly not winning role model of the year. Again.
  19. That poor Italian ain't gonna get the headlines he deserved for that red card tackle. More seriously, the guy needs help.
  20. Fair enough. Meaning future elections post a yes vote would be residents only?
  21. In the general election its 15 years I believe. I'd say that's a bit long. Nobody voting will be asked to commit to where they will live in 5 years. Dundee east or West isn't relevant. If that same Dundee east citizen left the UK, they'd still have a vote. And no, ethnicity has nothing to do with it.
  22. Its the same logistical nightmare that's managed for each general election. A challenge that will be insignificant compared to many of the projects post independence. I don't think its an excuse worthy of Scotland's capability.
  23. Baxter, I'd say a Scot working outside Scotland temporarily earning to support a family in Scotland would be one example of a stakeholder. You can say its not sufficient in your opinion to give them the right to a vote, but the point is, its not stupid for them to feel they should have as much say as some others who do. I don't include myself in that BTW, I wont have a vote and that's fair enough. Although my own plans to return would be very much affected by the outcome. Changing subject a bit - I suspect that Salmon and co thought that Scots living elsewhere in UK would be more likely to vote no, hence the different eligibility rules to the general election. A bit like changing the age limit. I'm not so sure.
