Re: Transport to Perth Airport - WTF?

Public transport to Perth Airport? :rofl:

Re: Glasgow Rangers likely to fold

Do you seriously imagine the SNP give a toss about a Union Jack and St Georges flag waving club and supporters such as Rangers? There's very few votes for independence coming from them.
