      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

Question Time Tonight

All true, but while the programme may be coming from Northern Ireland it's broadcast to the rest of the UK. I'd assume that NI gets its own political discussion programmes (though I have no actual notion whether or not this is the case). I also assume that mainland politics is of pragmatic interest to the Northern Irish electorate, since the continuation of their state depends on it to a great extent, and none of the unrepresented parties you mention have much sway in mainland politics. So all in all, I can see where the producers are coming from ...

I'd agree with you to an extent, however, if its not to reflect the different political views across the country what is the point in Question Time actually going around the country in the first place.  

Whether or not, NI has its own political programs or not isn't really relevant, a UK wide program should be reflecting what is going on in NI to the wider UK.

I could only watch half of the programme last night. If the politicians and audience are anything to go by, it must be an awful place to live in. The troubles may ahve quelled but the bad feeling is still there and they are still way behind with abortion and gay marriage...:huh:

Things might not be as bad as they were previously but its still not all sweetness and light, just tends not to get reported on the "mainland".
