  1. The section I was standing everyone was booing and shouting abuse at the SFA. However in other areas they were clapping at the end and I just cannot understand why. Ok, I felt the players made an effort last night even though they were shite and huffed and puffed , and I can understand fans perhaps not booing, but absolutely no way did they deserve to be clapped. Ffs who out there actually thought that performance was acceptable, it really beggars belief.
  2. Good old Trump . https://www.desmogblog.com/2018/05/11/trump-epa-undo-fracking-oil-gas-wastewater-protections
  3. I can see an argument for both sides in this . Showing the video is exactly what the guy wants and I cant see the point in helping him achieve notoriety, plus the deceased have families out there and IMO its pretty disrespectful to them to be plastering this around the world. However , I do agree with thplinth that sometimes people need to be aware of the magnitude of actions like these. At the point in this thread when he posted the video ( I never saw it but did see the post) the thread was likely to turn into another of these โ€˜OMG what a shame my thoughts are with the familyโ€™ blah blah blah which is very respectful but achieves very little. Most sane people will rightfully be appalled at this crime and video but I would honestly say the comments from the Australian senator are, in different way, almost as dangerous and vile. Few people will attempt to copycat Brenton Tarrant , there are a lot more who will somehow try to use the senators words perhaps not to excuse Tarrant , but to inflame racial tension and therefore increase the chances of a similar incident. I think the mods had little option but to remove the video given the fact the world and its granny were trying to remove it from social media.
  4. I replied to your reply to Antidote, not Aaid. He had been talking about the reduction in deaths due to speed cameras. There was nothing wrong with your reply, you are just incredibly hard to argue with , and it is frustrating. So much so I am pretty certain I am being whooshed ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ you are as frustrating as fook. You should try a different type of emotion some time, anger isny the only one out there ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Whit ? Cost benefit? Cost of lives versus benefitting what? Getting somewhere 15 mins quicker ? And you can call me a retard too, I dont give a fck, I would rather have emotion caring about a death than care about some boy racers โ€˜freedom โ€˜ to tear up the road or pamper to some stressed out person with no patience ragin that their liberties are being abused . No one expects the limit to go to 10mph but on certain roads there is clearly too high a level of fatalities and if it means introducing speed cameras to bring down speed to a level that will reduce these then the thick ass is certainly not the person introducing them. Still reading the finnish think tank.
  7. Not according to this we dont. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-47523168
  8. ๐Ÿค” How about we offer everyone free pants for life ? Thanks, will print it off with the growth commission and report back ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Did the ECJ not rule that article 50 can only be revoked if the member state was not planning to buy time but planning to remain in the EU and that retriggering it would not be possible ? FWIW I wouldn't blame member states for declining an extension but I think they will approve it if requested. Its a mess though , its not long till the European elections, I am not sure what can be achieved between now and then.
  10. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I dont really think withdrawing Article 50 is a serious option , is it ? Its surely got to be an extension or a no deal Brexit.
  11. Yeah , but why bother voting on different days when everyone knows there is the option of asking for an extension out there too ? At this late stage โ€˜no extension โ€˜ effectively means โ€˜leaving without a deal โ€˜ , so you would be better just having โ€˜ no dealโ€™ and โ€˜ extensionโ€™ as the options on the one vote. Or is there another option I am not aware of? She may of course think the MPโ€™s are too thick to understand the question therefore needs to split it ๐Ÿ™„
  12. What exactly is the point of 2 more separate votes ? If a no deal vote is defeated tonight surely the same people are going to vote for an extension, there will be no time for an alternative. Would it not have made more sense just to have 2 questions/votes tonight. No deal or extension ? This whole thing is getting dragged out to ridiculous proportions.
  13. That would be my preferred option. Jumping into a new currency from day one would be too much of a leap though our own currency is what I would choose. A gradual transistion sounds less risky. More details would help. I would also be interested to hear what thplinthโ€™s finnish think tank has to say . Try saying that after a few drinks.
  14. Go on then, dont keep us all in suspense... I survived the night in case anyone is interested.
  15. The currency issue is a beast . They need to get it right if we go again and it needs to be clear. I am not convinced they are at that stage . However right now I am more concerned about a roof bring kept over ma head, that wind is howling out there. I have just cut my toe nails as well , I hope this isnt the last thing I do in life ๐Ÿ™
  16. Awe , go on, I have never seen it and would have an interest.
  17. Agree. If the currency issue is not addressed we are fooked. ๐Ÿ™„ I smell ๐Ÿ’ฉ
  18. And thats fair enough too, I agree that governments can have too much control over the basic way people live their life and they should be called out for it., I just personally dont think the drink driving limit being reduced and the sugar tax are the best examples of this. We are a nation of fat lazy bassas , its the many not the few, and anything that can be done to improve it , within reason, has to be applauded. For me the drink driving reduction is a no brainer, if someone close to me was to be hurt badly, or worse still killed in a car accident , I feel I would get a small degree of comfort knowing the liable driver had made a terrible mistake but was at least sober , than someone who had been drinking, even one pint. I would hate to be thinking, โ€˜โ€™ would this perhaps not have happened if they had had no alcohol ? โ€˜โ€™ Perhaps it would have but why take the chance. I realise i probably sound like a pious do gooder, I dont mean to.
  19. Over and above what Vanderark has stated I would suggest that saying the sugar tax will be no deterrent in obesity is rather naive . There are various factors that create obesity, not just inactivity. Excess of sugar is one of them. Nor is obesity the only detrimental side effect of sugar, excess sugar causes numerous health problems. And using the parents analogy means nothing. My dad died 67 and my 2 closest friends mum died in their 50โ€™s, nowhere near 90. Its like saying its ok to smoke cos some folk buck the trend healthwise. With regards to the drink drive limits, it has been proven that the risk of having an accident rises in direct relation to the amount of alcohol comsumed. With that in mind why take the risk just to have a pint ?This comes from someone who drinks more than they should, I am not some party pooper who wants to spoil everyones fun.
  20. I agree. I dont think the sugar tax is bad either , even if it was a Westminster policy. My daughter drank far too much Lucozade and after the sugar tax rise they reduced the sugar. She hated it and stopped drinking it. There must be more examples of that. She now drinks more water. Anything that reduces the amount of sugar people take has to be positive for health. And I really cant see the problem with lowering the drink driving limit either.
