  1. Somethings have changed for the better such as more new houses being built, better transport links, much-improved export figures and much-improved tourism bringing revenue into Scotland
  2. To be honest I have not thought about it. For me the first and most important thing is independence. Gain that first and concentrate on that and then we can begin shaping our Scotland.
  3. Yes but the same could be said for Salmond. I know of Yes backers who did not think he was the man to get us across the line either. Politics is like life - it is all about opinions.
  4. Thplinth, independence is about just that. Sure if you are losing faith/confidence in the SNP that is fine but that should not be confused with voting for independence. The SNP are merely a party pushing for independence but not the be all and end all of independence. An independent Scotland will give you that chance to remove the SNP from government - remaining in the UK will not.
  5. I get that part but this Tory government have shown this issue wont bother them as long as they hold the keys to No 10. This government has been blown out more times than a wind-sock in Westminster but they are still there. They are in disarray and the polls make for nasty reading. At present even if they did better at a GE than all polls suggest they'd still fall way short of a overall majority and absolutely nobody would form a coalition with them.
  6. I see no reason whatsoever why BJ would call a snap GE. He can just sit tight until 2022. To kill off Corbyn? Jeez is there a need. Leave the man to do that himself as he is doing a good enough job of that.
  7. I have said many times on here and will say it again. The reason we cannot go for an indyref now is multiple reasons. At present the best polls put Yes at around 50% and the worst put us at the low 40s. For a Yes vote to be returned we have to convince the waivers and diving in for an indyref before the Brexit disaster is finalised would play straight onto Bitter Together 2's hands. Think about it. The chief reason indyref2 is being pushed for is Brexit and that Scotland voted to Remain in the EU. Now at present the UK is still in the EU. If the SNP were to somehow force indyref2 now before Brexit is sorted then Bitter Together would have a field day. All of the waiverers would be told that you see indyref was never about Brexit at all and they are just using it as an excuse as nobody even knows how it is going to end. That will scrub thousands of potential Yes votes off that we desperately need. On top of that the dreamers, the ever optimistic and the gullible would also be put off voting Yes. They would be in limbo and still hold out a hope that Brexit may not happen or it may come about with deals. In short they wont have the balls to vote Yes without a definitive view about how Brexit is going to pan out. More thousands of potential Yes voters scrubbed off the list. If a Yes vote is to be returned next time it needs to play it smart. That is waiting until Brexit has been confirmed and probably with BJ confirmed as new PM and already pissing lots of people off. That will then be the time to move not now.
  8. Hypothetically, thplinth if there were an indyref tomorrow with NS in charge how would you vote? I am presuming it would still be Yes? What must be remembered is that NS reign is temporary but independence is hopefully permanent.
  9. I agree. The only way those in studio should review it is if the onfield referee contacts them to say I am not sure about that decision can you check it. If they don't do that then it should be left alone.
  10. Aye okay 12 yards but point stands.
  11. The more home-produced players sold abroad for big money the better as it encourages clubs that youth development is their bread and butter and very much worth their while.
  12. It was friggin painful listening to Pearce. As the missed penalty was about to be taken he was entrusting about how she may take a magnificent penalty (not the word he used his was even more silky). I was sat there thinking it is a penalty you cannot call a kick from 18 yards such a thing. What a twat he is.
  13. Tsitsipas getting knocked out was also a big shock and Gael Monfils is out having to retire in the 5th set with a knee injury.
  14. Jeremy Hunt saying he won't allow the union to fall. And how exactly is he to stop it if Scotland votes for it in a referendum. Sounds like a complete and utter tit but amazingly a better option than BJ but nonetheless useless.
  15. I really don't see what the Alex Salmond case has to do with Scotland wanting independence. I have seen bigger scandals revolve around Westminster and politics have continued regardless.
