  1. Talk about getting hold of the wrong end of the stick! 2 seperate investigations, and Evans isn't leading either of them. But H_B is always happy to promote non stories, as long as the narrative is 'SNP bad'.
  2. Top trolling! At what time do you feel that referencing "extermination" and "solution" together are acceptable? Please feel free to choose from 1933-1938 or 1939-1945
  3. Looks like he's from Scottish background with a name like that. No doubt a self loathing Stockholm simpleton p***k I'm not aware of any Scottish links, just his racist poem. From his Guardian Obituary "James Michie, poet and translator, born June 24 1927; died October 30 2007 He was born in Weybridge, Surrey, the second of three children of James Michie, a banker, and his wife Marjorie (née Crain)... ...He went to school at Marlborough, then read classics at Trinity College, Oxford."
  4. I'm sure you'll get past Raith Rovers if you do end up in the play-off place. They would have to improve significantly. QoS weren't really tested last season.
  5. It's not a problem to me if you identify as 30% non-male and 3% non-white. That's your own decision to make, and I'll uphold your desire to self-ID. Best of luck in your gender & genetic fluidity
  6. Here's a wee poem that Boris published in The Spectator in 2004. I wonder if it reflects his views, and if it will help his ambition to "unite" the UK after Brexit Friendly Fire - By James Michie The Scotch - what a verminous race! Canny, pushy, chippy, they're all over the place, Battening off us with false bonhomie, Polluting our stock,undermining our economy. Down with sandy hair and knobbly knees! Suppress the tartan dwarves and the Wee Frees! Ban the kilt, the skean-dhu and the sporran As provocatively, offensively foreign! It's time Hadrian's Wall was refortified To pen them in a ghetto on the other side. I would go further. The nation Deserves not merely isolation But comprehensive extermination. We must not flinch from a solution. (I await legal prosecution.)
  7. Toby looooves his bath (not) They haven't worked out yet that we're getting them ready & packing the car for 2 weeks of walking on the Black Isle.
  8. Harold Wilson was labour leader during the last half century (until 1976, if I recall correctly). He was a far better leader than Blair, in my opinion, and like Blair, won 3 elections; albeit with smaaller majorities or no outright majotiry at all. It just shows how much the centre has drifted rightwards - Wilson was considered part of the 'soft left' at the time.
  9. Staysure have always been most reasonable for pre-existing conditions in my experience.
  10. You'll probably like this map of railway stations in East & Central Scotland with "no Gaelic, Celtic or other foreign mumbo-jumbo to confuse the traveller" Best of luck using these proper English names next time you travel from "Thicket" to "Mound of Stones Place" through the city centre .
  11. In the 2011 census, Glasgow City mirrored the Scottish average with 1.7% of the population able to speak Gaelic. Accordingly, the true figure is more than 170 times larger than your guess. An seo gus do chuideachadh
  12. Well done Phil. At least 50% of your words come from a standard English dictionary and the 'SNP voter = vegetable' image is purely delicious. A few more dogs, and it would have been a classic. 6/10
  13. That was short & sweet? It certainly didn't answer any questions posed. To me, it just looks like a long-winded reiteration of the current line being parroted by Unionists e.g. "Look how difficult it is to leave a 46 year union. Imagine how difficult it will be to leave a union of 312 years" If you don't want to engage, please put me on ignore. I'll continue to question your assertions, but you won't have to read my 'abstentionist evangelism'.
  14. That view is disputed (but you wouldn't realise it from watching the BBC where it is invariably presented as fact) The only way to find out for sure is through the courts.
  15. 1) Many of these bodies already have Scottish, Welsh & NI branch offices. As strichiner correctly points out, the ICO's office in Edinburgh does not deal with work relating to the Freedom for Information (Scotland) Act. What he doesn't point out is that 45 Melville Street deals with all other UK ICO duties, with a main focus on data protection. As all these experienced staff will not be required by the rUK ICO after independence, I would suggest that Indy Scotland might be able to offer them a job, maybe even in their current premises? Can you give details of your figure of "high tens" of bodies? I hope you've not just plucked it from the list of 86 UK ombudsmen which was identified at the time of the 2014 referendum. 2) UK law which is currently applicable in Scotland will continue to apply in Scotland until it is revised - exactly the same position that Westminster would have found itself in with regard to EU law if the UK had left in March as originally planned. For example, are you seriously suggesting that the few remaining provisions of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 that are still in force today (like Section 12) would automatically be revoked on Independence day? If so, what is the basis for your belief? 3) I see your Annie Wells & raise you Kirstene Hair. There are incompetents in both parliaments. Are you seriously suggesting that any of the MSP's mentioned actually write legislation or are anything but party placemen that vote however they are told? Your argument just appears to be a variation on "too wee, too poor & too stupid". Of all pro-union posters on here, I would have expected better from you. 4) Agreed. It's a shame that Westminster has adopted a cut'n'paste attitude in recent years c.f. "the red tape challenge" of 2011-2015 - take seven sets of regulations and consolidate them into one that has practically the same effect
