  2. I just posted a (pro-union) Herald article. You'll need to take it up with them. I'm just watching with interest and have not formed an opinion beyond Carmichael (who I think really should step down [and stand again if he wants to] as is the opinion of many Lib Dems). Malcolm Bruce said they are all liars though. Does he include Heywood? --- Although I would have expected the PM of the UK, if honourable, to have immediately stepped in if he found out about the source of the leak well before the election. This was not normal rough and tumble, it was a false smear on the FM of Scot

  3. Talking of 'balance', surely the official ENSO update is about as 'balanced' as one can get. Or do some folks think they know more than the professionals? IMO, the 'sceptics' idea of 'balance' reads rather like bias?

  5. Yes. Although I'm not sure you could describe the UK as constitutionally stable right now. If people had wanted stability, they'd have been better off voting Yes! Instead, we are likely to continue in constitutional crisis mode for years yet.* Obviously, I didn't say Scotland was a colony although I understand why you mentioned it in light of other iref situations. The relationship with Scotland and the British empire was more 'if you can't beat them, join them'. Of course the empire is gone and hence the union is unstable as the union was created for empire. Take away the point of a union

  6. Yes, Quebec is devo maxed. No sign of that for Scotland. Only this morning we have another group of experts saying the crappy Smith proposals would be very damaging for Scotland and FFA is needed at least. I know the two are often compared, but Quebec is pretty much a global exception in terms of independence movements. It's the only country to hold an iref (twice) and not become independent shortly afterwards. However, it may yet as the Yes vote did increase for the second one. Based on discussions with my family from Quebec (on Mrs SS's side), it is due to the fact Quebec is devo max

  7. 0.15% is 8000 people. The population of the Scottish Borders Council area is 114,000. Dumfries and Galloway 148,000. Northumberland is 316,000 and Cumbria 500,000. Most of the traffic across the border is these people going to work, visiting friends, going shopping in Carlisle etc. You are correct in that very few people live Newcastle yet commute to e.g. Edinburgh to work and vice versa; just too much of a distance to travel. This has contributed to a degree of geographical isolation of Scotland and England and is part of the reason they haven't ever merged into a single country in terms of i

  8. I'd hardly say 'BIG'. That makes me sound like some flashy executive rather than a scientist / engineer. I'm very specialised so there's not many of me; that's the reason I travel. Even then I don't travel much, but spend most of my time in a lab (including posting on forums because I might be 'virtually' in there e.g. at 23:00 on a Saturday night depending on what tests I'm running). It's not wonderfully glamorous, although 'quieter' than the middle of the North Sea in a gale I imagine. There are corporate offices in London, but as I'm upstream there's not much call for me visiting t

  14. So 8 Lib Dem MP's will soon become 7. Surely Carmichael has to resign over this, the fact that he blatantly lied when the leak first came out denying all knowledge. It's unlikely he would have saved his seat if those voters in his constituency had known the full story. The guy is obviously not just a blatant lier but stupid as surely he should have realized that an inquiry would have been initiated.

  15. New footage has emerged of Berlin in the aftermath of World War II. The video, filmed in July 1945, shows famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag in ruins as ordinary citizens try to go about their everyday lives. The video, shot around two months after the city fell in 1945, shows the utter destruction the German capital underwent during WWII. Berlin had already been divided into four zones by the Allied powers, and signs in Russian had already begun to be erected in the Soviet sphere of influence. https://vimeo.com/126267047
