  1. I was simply pointing out your error of fact. There are no one-to-one analogies - Scotland's situation is unique (as is every other country's).
  2. No it's not. The Republic of Texas: 1846. I suppose you could also argue East Germany: 1990.

    Yes and Yes. And then 1.07: keeper, header, header, volley, ball touches the earth at the back of the net, Shilton wonders who to blame. Duncan II's use of 'beauty' is bang on - Hoddle brought it to the game again and again.
  4. Parklife wasn't talking about you; he explicitly says that he's referring to the poster with the highest number of reputation points. However, to be fair, thinking he was talking about you does make you come across as dumb as fuck.
  5. I'm well aware of Scotland's separate legal and education systems, thank you. I was simply pointing out that there's significant shared culture when compared to the EU. FWIW, the only worthwhile measure of cultural affinity is how easy it is for a member of one culture to use a supermarket in another.
  6. Really? It takes a fairly bizarre reading of history to suggest that the dissolution of a 300-year-old political union - a nation state with all the shared cultural and economic elements that have developed with it - is on a lesser scale than leaving an economic grouping that has only really attempted a strong political focus since the early 1990s. This doesn't mean that dissolving the UK is either impossible or undesirable, it just means that your statement is myopic.
  7. So did I. But upon opening the thread last night, found it had been resurrected by that Debora poster: "Good evening. While waiting for a bus I overheard two people discussing bitcoin and they recommended this site … <some link or other>". Obviously a bot, so I made a post pointing this out. Woke this morning (my time) to find that both posts had been deleted (and at least one more as I had a notification that Ally B had quoted my post) … then I forgot about it as we had a bit of an earthquake, and a 6.1er tends to monopolize the concentration.

    Rory Gallagher

    Now then … Malcolm Owen, Joe Strummer, Ian Curtis, Ari Up, Lemmy (+ Fast Eddie & Phil), Lee Brilleaux, Mick Green (The Pirates), Bert Weedon ...
  9. That upgrade was certainly a factor. The Euros; the post-2014 hangover really kicking in; the rise of other forms of social media ...
  10. May 2018: 5,243 ... Women, children and middle-aged statos first.

    Actually, the issue there was divorce.

    It doesn't make the slightest difference. Since when did symbolism depend upon genetics?

    Aye, slap us down with an Express story. You were talking about their being 'descendants' - we don't need the Express to tell us that the current monarch isn't a 'direct' descendant, as in pure primogeniture. That's what the whole Act of Settlement was about.

    I do think for myself, honestly. She's not 'in charge' of me. She's a constitutional monarch - same as in Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark - most of northern Europe. What's the point of having an elected apolitical head of state? It simply causes a potential democratic clash with the elected government. There's no inherent advantage in increasing layers of democracy.

    … and how does having a monarch prevent anyone thinking for themselves?
