  1. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    The European Commission themselves have compiled a handy myth busting list https://blogs.ec.europa.eu/ECintheUK/euromyths-a-z-index/
  2. There's a fair few within two minutes of the station to cater for all tastes.
  3. Official worst town in Scotland

    It's far, far worse than that. There is one road in and one road out. Think The Hills Have Eyes and you are along the right lines
  4. Depends whether you want to hit the town or not. There aren't many pubs around Newton on Ayr just the Wallace, but it's a squeeze. There's also the bowling club at the ground which is always welcoming to away fans, but I don't know if it will be open or not.. The town's only a 20 minute walk or a short taxi ride. Would recommend Drouthy Neebors which is right at Ayr station Or you could get off at Prestwick and jump in a taxi Don't think there will be any pubs where you will be made to feel unwelcome apart from perhaps those that are frequented by ra peepul.
  5. When will indyref2 happen?

    Of course there are the folks who will vote no regardless. You could offer them all a million quid each and they still not vote for it. There are still large numbers of votes up for grabs though. and a cross party approach in my mind is the best way forward to get those votes. It isn't about distancing themselves from the official campaign, it's about getting a message across that it is more than one party. It would kill the scenario from last time where Alex Salmond was demonised. When you heard the words "I don't like that Alex Salmond" from someone you knew there was no reason that would sway them. It will be the same the next time, just swap the name Nicola Sturgeon for Alex Salmond. And it isn't just Rapeepul types who were saying this. Perhaps it was where I was but it the campaign had been pretty much divvied up between the SNP members and elected officials. Apart from the odd person It was an SNP campaign in all but name. And it pissed a fair few folks off. There was very little co-operation between the individual factions.
  6. When will indyref2 happen?

    I say this as an SNP member. The first thing the SNP has to do in any referendum campaign is get away from the vision that it is an SNP thing. Yes Scotland really struggled with this in 2014 Like it or not, to many the SNP is a toxic brand. They need to wheel out a few relatively big hitters from the other parties. I have no doubt there will be some lined up, particularly if the Brexit shambles shafts Scotland.
  7. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Difficult to return something to a geographical location they have never left. Maybe the UK will one day do the honourable thing and return all the wee bits of the world they have stolen over the years to their rightful owners. Places like Gibraltar, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland...
  8. The Chooky Embra

    Get your bids in for some of Chooky's debris https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/ebay-bids-for-prince-philip-crash-debris-hit-£65000/ar-BBSx3mi?ocid=spartanntp
  9. I'm struggling to remember a time as Ayr fans when everything has looked rosy or even when the sky has fallen in. We're always somewhere in between the two. There's always an expectation when we are doing well that it will all go wrong, and if we play shite and lose then it's probably expected. It's that way because it is what we are used to. Saturday however was the mother of all defeats. And having witnessed some shocking defeats over the years that is quite a statement. That said the anger will subside and by Friday the usual suspects will be back cheering on the team. The supporters of any team at our level would have reacted in the same way. Some may stay away, but I doubt any will give the team a "hostile" reception.
  10. When will indyref2 happen?

    Even if they don't get the vote it's a couple of percent off the 55% without even kicking a ball
  11. When will indyref2 happen?

    I'm basing my opinion on people I know. Some are deluded, some are desperate, some see the clock ticking towards May 2021, some can't accept the last result and some are just absolute zoomers. The UDI brigade are the absolute worst. There seems to be a misunderstanding that the Brexit process hasn't actually finished yet. Sturgeon has been quite clear on the process for calling a second indyref. If no deal is the outcome or if the outcome is so bad for Scotland then it should be called. Until that point nothing can be done.
  12. We're all hurt and angry after Saturday and rightly so, but how anyone can pin this on the board/chairman is beyond me.
  13. Official worst town in Scotland

    Not a bad football team though... ^^^Let's all laugh at Ayr United Thread for this pish
  14. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Can someone tell me if I have got this right. They are simply going to unilaterally remove the Backstop from the Withdrawal Agreement and put that to parliament. All this in the knowledge that the EU demand the backstop and won't budge on it. So the vote will now be on something which is impossible to implement, but will appease the ERG and DUP and possibly be passed In this scenario no deal is the only outcome. Am I getting this right?
  15. I'm an Ayr fan. I've had them on speed dial for quite a number of years. However even the Samaritans are pissing themselves with laughter after yesterday
