    There is also a legal argument that the people of Scotland are legally sovereign. However in England historical anomaly means that in England it is the crown (queen) who is sovereign and lends her powers to Westminster. S30 order granted from Westminster is the easiest and least controversial way to amicably hold a referendum in Scotland. However (unlike Catalonia) holding a consultative referendum on any topic not illegal. If Scotland wants its independence we will get it. Lets not believe the lie we have to wait until *they* let us free.

    Might work... Solved all my problems (occasional buffering / blocked channels) Try a free trial with nordvpn : ISPs (like Virign) are actively blocking illegal content these days.

    GENIPtv is cheap / reliable. Dont mind paying 2.99 a month for VPN (as can also use it to download MP3 / films etc) without getting blocked by Virgin media.

    I defn need NordVPN to get GenIPTV to work reliably with Virgin media. At end of day VPN only costs 2.99 a month - so not a big deal.
  5. apology - I seem to have replied to 4 year old thread
  6. Incorrect. Someone is deliberately confusing rules for joining EU and the EURO
  7. By that argument North Korea is the only independent nation in world. Nothing wrong with pooling some sovereignty and joining EU for mutual benefit.

    Apparently / suprisingly so... If they get promoted I quite fancy an away trip down there Not many chances to stand on terraces in a tight old school ground left https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/ayr-uniteds-somerset-park-fit-13671640
  9. How the fuck can they sell NordVPN subscription for £5 a year !? When NordVPN themselves charge 2.99 a month. Looks like they must be selling account details for single account to multiple users ? Though if it works.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/nord-vpn-account-2-year-subscription/113478212009?hash=item1a6bd419a9:g:9aYAAOSwg4tbJPkf:rk:2:pf:0
  10. Signed up to nordvpn after recommendation on here. Cant get free trial - works a treat. $2.99 a month though need to sign up for 3 years.

    EU is a force for good against climate change. How else do we take a stand against USA, China or Russia ? I would love to think humans (world wide) would be smart enough to shift from captialism to something more sustainable. We dont all need to be working 40+ hours a week and consuming resources. However inward looking politics Brexit is certainly not the revolution that is going to make that shift to global society.

    People elect the governments they deserve. Fundamentally though human beings are stupid, selfish and unable to work together in large groups. The only way to solve major issues like climate change or famine, will be a move away from capitalism to something more sustainable. However that is never going to happen (.... in or out of EU). In meantime people, like you or me, will keep adding to problem by flying across the globe, using plastics bags, and having capitalistic aspirations.

    Empty soundbite. In ideal world there would be no tarrif barriers to trade globally. In reality we live in a world where each nation will always look after its own self interest and people. Just look at the trade wars between China and USA. Where we differ in opinion is that UK (or Scotland) are both better served by being part of something larger like the EU. A common market will always require common rule book (ECJ) by which all members agree. Swapping a little sovereignty for increased wealth and economy of scale is valid. Outside EU you simply make different compromises in your international relationships, many of which wont be pleasant or ideal - without the benefit that comes from being part of larger trading block.

    You like buying bananas for 20p ? Or a car / phone / tv with electronics from all over the world <etc> There is no going back from the modern inter-connected world we live and trade in. The alternative would be North Korea. EU membership is what gives us a collective voice when dealing with might of Russia, USA or China.
