The abolish the Scottish Parliament party.

I've met two or three who shout from the rooftop about getting rid etc but usually when you begin to dissect their responses they start foaming at the mouth.

I think, anecdotally, at least that the very vast majority of Scots/people living in Scotland think it's a good thing, regardless of their political persuasion.

The idea that Holyrood has done more damage than good doesn't really hold any weight when you look at what has been achieved. They've (regardless of party in power) made a monumental arse of some things - no more than their contemporaries down the road however - and worked some wonders in other areas.

This anti-Scottish Parliament party will last about as long a Saints clean sheet.

Absolutely stunned at this revelation

Anyway, it would seem (http://search.electoralcommission.org.uk/Registrations/PP6673) that this mob are just a rebrand of the “British Unionist Party” who managed a whole 0.1% of the national list vote in 2016 - around a quarter the amount of votes that the political heavyweights of RISE managed.

Think Holyrood will be ok for now.

This mob aren't the only anti-devolution party. There's the Scottish Unionist Party who've been around since the late 80's. There's the British Unionist Party (formerly Better Britian - Unionist Party) formed in 2015 although from what I can gather are primarily oppossed to further devolution rather than scrapping it in full.

Of course both of them are no marks in the grand scheme of things.

I’d say Schwiizerdutsch is too different from hochdeutsch to be considered a dialect. The grammar is borderline non existent which is probably the main reason I would say that. Then you have the countless Swiss German dialects in there own right, which vary wildly. I can understand a bit of Baslerdutsch and Zuridutsch but put me with someone who speaks Bernerdutsch or Walliserdutsch and I am lost. Even then, if I try to read something that has been written in any Swiss dialect I am stumped.
I know a few Germans who will have a laugh about it and claim Swiss German is just a stupid dialect of the main language, but most of them only say that to hide the fact that they barely have a fucking clue what is being said around them.
Hi Ross.

Are you fluent in German or French? Or both, also would you be able to speak/understand the Swiss dialect?

It's the same mob.   Abolish are based in 270 Bath st, Glasgow the same registered address as 'Scotland in Union' and 'Better Together' etc.

Yes, and I've met a couple of yoons who are so craven and self-loathing they actually deny Scotland is a country, and would gladly see it annexed by England. 
I'm not the sort of Scot who romanticises the country at all, in fact I'm rather ambivalent about Scotland as a place, but I'll never understand Scots who are so in love with the notion of being part of the union that they venerate England and all things English, to the point whereby they're visibly embarrassed at their own identity and nationality, and openly wish to see Scotland diminished as if that would somehow lead to them becoming 'more English'. No surprise either that the particular individual I have in mind also claims that Scotland is an anti-English xenophobic backwater, that they've never once encountered anti-Scottish feeling in England, and that on the whole England is a much more tolerant and affable place. 
I genuinely wonder if we're talking about the same countries.
There's wankers everywhere who'll hate anything that isn't 'theirs'. That doesn't exclude Scotland and by definition it's prevalent in England.

The idea of romanticism in everything one does is ridiculous I agree, and particularly when in relation to the place where you were born, by nothing other than sheer chance.

That's not to say that it shouldn't be a given that you have the right to be governed by people who live, work and play in the same land as you.

When newspapers used to print the addresses of their letter writers there was one Alistair McConnachie who corresponded from that address. Bampot, utter bampot.

272 Bath Street is an accommodation address used by lots of "Scottish" companies.

It's been used in the past by traders wanting to hide their true addresses for various reasons. Last count I saw, there were over 4000 businesses listed as having their registered office in the postcode G2 4JR.

Think I would stick to the Caymans for obvious reasons.

My German is reasonable enough but probably should be better. I have a bad habit of switching between formal and informal and need to put more effort in to increasing my vocabulary again. Part of the problem is that I try speaking Swiss German in the dialect local to me and the grammar doesn’t really come into it with them. I can understand a few of the dialects but many of them are pure gobbledygook as far as I am concerned.

My French is on a par with Delboy Trotters.

Is Swiss German more or less complicated grammatically? I couldn't get my head around cases at school.

Far less complicated. I made the mistake of trying to impress my missus by learning Swiss German instead of Hoch Deutsch. The locals tended to be more impressed by the little I learned, but when I then had to actually learn Hoch Deutsch it was a nightmare trying to forget what were pretty much just bad habits. The genetive case in particular you can almost get away without completely. There is rarely a “Der” “Die” or “Das” in Swiss German, it’s all “De” the way they say it.

Obviously that's not an option for a company that wants to appear Scottish. 

You can't register a limited company in Scotland without providing a registered office address in Scotland

You want to talk about whataboutery? Fine. Let's see you answer you answer these questions directly.

1. What does "grey and green yins" really mean?

2. Why do you continue to follow, like and quote racists?

1. Celtic fans who wear grey and green hooped shirt.
2. I don't.  I do read some posts from small-minded xenophobes on here but that's it.

Good one, it's rhyming slang for a sectarian remark begining with F.
