  1. Well said ss. On this subject , and the mentality behind some people in England when they talk about "allowing" scotland to have an independance referendum , at first i always thought this was massive arrogance. Now i am not so sure. The reason being i think many english people confuse scotland`s place in the british union with that of wales and ireland , both conquered possessions of england historically. As we know , scotland was never fully military conquered. It joined with the agreement of the scottish nobles. The reason i believe this is i was reading an old book

  2. Thought I'd just drop this in here. May is a weak willed, hypocritical placement PM leading a weak, divided government facing a weak, divided opposition, with the rUK in the naughty corner and an international laughing stock at best. To quote Theresa May's vans, translated to local dialect...'Away hame' Theresa. Sort your own house out before lecturing others.

  5. Culloden: why truth about battle for Britain lay hidden for three centuries The Battle of Culloden of 1746, where British troops defeated the Scottish Jacobite army for the final time near Inverness, has long been mis-represented for political purposes. The Jacobites' struggle to restore the deposed Stuart dynasty to the British throne was a major threat to the success of a single centralised Britain. Yet for several centuries, historians presented the Jacobites as kilted primitives. Culloden also saw the beginning of a national narrative about reconciling England and its “les

  6. I know how you feel, Alexis: I have two daughters, both of whom have lived in Scotland since they were wee. Why should they (not to forget my son, who lives in Berlin, who's married to a Vietnamese lady and is a bona fide European) acquiesce to the will of xenophobes? It beats me! IMO, Ms Sturgeon is our last, best hope!

  7. I knew from her first speech what her stance on this would be, I find it very unfair that she wants to take you out of the EU with us.

  15. Why would turnout be 50%? And why would that invalidate the result? It just says 50% are happy for either outcome. I don't recall any rules on turnout for the last referendum nor the EU one. Why should the rules change for a future Scottish one? England doesn't own Scotland, so any inference that Westminster needs to give permission (other than as some sort of polite gesture) suggests subjugation. A pretty ugly thing to do and would greatly damage England internationally. Especially as Scotland could just go ahead and hold a referendum anyway. Holyrood could pass a motion t

  16. New cabinet southern English, almost exclusively. May has started how she means to go - say one thing, do another. But she'll be serious about stopping Scottish independence - there's a fight coming here, big time. Bozo being FCS is her first bad mistake, god knows what she's thinking.

  22. When I click on a topic to view -IE the mod thread - I always click when the last post was made the example below is 6 minutes ago above the black arrow Previously this always took me to the last post I had read / viewed but now it doesn't and it takes me to the first page (this happens on every section of the forum) does this happen to anyone else?
