Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The point is he continued to give it the know it all after Rob posted the proof, then called everyone a bunch of c****s! He could have admitted he was wrong and left it at that. Not wishing to defend the user's actions but I feel I should correct what he actually said. The swear filter was slightly...

Re: Scottish independence

Perhaps he would have set up a public body that would have actually done something to reign in the press in Scotland, rather than allow it to be the bilious pit of hatred, scaremongering, invasiveness and tittle-tattle it is now in GB. It's noted in the most recent Private Eye that Alex Salmond and...

Re: Scottish independence

Its now out of the box, and its clear some people are not going to let this go if there get screwed further. I'll be honest, If the turnout of this level continue, we could a get another vote sooner rather than later... Both sides could have done alot more..... Worth noting though that David Camero...

Re: Scottish independence

Well Scotland it's over to you now to decide. Remember to think carefully before you vote, as there will be no turning back.

Re: Scottish independence

I think the Daily Mail will be glad once the referendum is over as it's causing them the discomfort of almost supporting the BBC...

Re: Scottish independence

On a lighter note whilst Salmond says an independent Scotland would keep the pound it would appear this Bureau de Change at Dubai International Airport knows otherwise... http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/09/11/1410450337879_wps_39_The_currency_exchange_in_.jpg Article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/...

Re: Scottish independence

It amuses me that the Yes campaign don't want to be told what to do by Westminster, however are more than happy to be still told what to do from Brussels (via the EU). How do you mean, exactly? We're currently subject to European legislation as part of the UK - but you don't suggest that Westminste...

Re: Scottish independence

I'm half surprised the Salmond hasn't mentioned that from memory both RBS and Lloyds have the UK government/taxpayer as a major shareholder. If I was being cynical I'd suggest this might have been an influence in them going public, however non-cynical the announcement was designed to stabilise the f...

Re: Scottish independence

I couldn't help noticing Monday's papers (in England at least) had suggestions that the monarchy might be under threat if Scotland voted yes. Then by remarkable coincidence mid-morning it's announced that Kate Middleton is pregnant again. If I was being cynical I'd suggest someone within government ...

Re: Scottish independence

An interesting point mentioned in a recent Private Eye is that the Yes campaign hopes that an independent Scotland would still remain connected to the national grid. It was mentioned that it was only relatively recently that Scotland was connected up to the grid, having previously been separate, and...

Re: Dale Farm

A spokesman for Basildon Council said the enforcement notices would set out the precise action the authority intends to take. He added that, should the council overturn the injunction, travellers will be liable for all costs incurred by the delay. Article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-14983...
