Re: Roll Call...

Look in every now and again but don't normally post. I must say that it is good to see so many of the old crowd posting once again.

[QUOTE=macliam;12667114]Maybe for another thread, but whilst some Scots have a passion, others seem to see Independence as a financial issue - and faint heart never won fair lady. Until you're...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Those who voted for Brexit must be wondering right now whatever possessed them to do so. WM couldn't run a chook raffle never mind negotiating a withdrawal from the EU. I'm not unhappy as it...

Re: Should toilet training be compulsory before school - yes or no?

Ofcourse children should be toilet trained before they start school. Teachers have more important things to do. Toilet training is a parents job and not a very difficult one.

Re: The country we left behind

The best cause of action is for the Acts of Union to be rescinded. Scotland and England can then go their separate ways. After all they both want different things. England can leave the EU and be...

Re: So when does it "get better"

It will take you, if your like me, around 5 years to feel you belong and appreciate what the country offers, but again if you are like me, even after over 52 years you won't ever call it home despite...

Re: Where is quality of life better, America, Canada, Europe or Australia?

I haven't posted on here for a long time but the title of the thread encouraged me to do so. I have lived in Australia for over 52 years. I've had a very good life and travelled extensively. However,...

Re: Did the UK do the right thing in voting to leave the E.U.

I don't pretend to be an expert on oil but I do know Scotland could support itself without it. It doesn't gain anything from it at present. Highly regarded experts have given a different assessment...

Re: Did the UK do the right thing in voting to leave the E.U.

Re: Did the UK do the right thing in voting to leave the E.U.

Technically they do, but not a very good idea. The Scots will have their referendum whether May agrees or not. Independence is the best thing that could happen to Scotland.

Re: Did the UK do the right thing in voting to leave the E.U.

Sturgeon wants it when the terms are known and at the same time as the EU countries vote. This means that May cannot trade away Scotland's assets to gain a better deal for the south of England.

Re: The Trumpmare is happening... Who will win?

If common sense is all that is required, why is it so obviously missing from so many arguments? Would it be correct to assume it had died?

Re: 50 years almost to the day.

Thankyou all for your kind words. I don't think I am much different to lots of others. I suppose if I sit down and write it all, it might just fill a book. I do get angry when I hear how some asylum...

To the best of my knowledge the only time you will find a dual stream high school is when the Dept. of Edu. decide to create a new selective school. They don't build a new school, they simply choose...
