#1604582 Scottish Independence Referendum 2

Posted by Nelly on 25 May 2018 - 01:40 PM


They don't need to. There would be a general election to decide who runs an independent Scotland. I'd wager the SNP's share of the vote would plummet after independence. 


Need to just keep repeating this.  A vote for independence is not a vote for an SNP Government

haha im the same, I bought the blue one (mainly because it was reduced and also because I think years from now it will be iconic) but literally haven't worn it outside


on that note, I take it I am not alone in keeping every single one I have ever owned, much to the disdain of the wife?


not even sure why I keep them, just something tells me to


Yep, doesn't seem right throwing out an old top.  


oldest one I have is this one ScotlandASS9193Gr8.gif

First payment came out today. Hope it's not wasted on shite!

Other than that so far alomst 3500 people have signed up earning AFC an additional £500k in extra revenue.


Whilst £500k is a great achievement, I can't help but think its a drop in the ocean to what Dave Cormack or Stewart Milne could chip in, although I've no idea how much they already contribute financially.

Cardinal George Pell to stand trial in Australia for historic child sex offences.



I wonder if his defence team will argue that his victims, while technically children, had reached a certain level of physical maturity that no real crime had really been committed.

#1579186 The Diet And Fitness Thread

Posted by Nelly on 28 March 2018 - 08:43 AM

All this "diving about" is a false economy I reckon.


Example 1:  One of my mates played football multiple times a week for many years - was extremely fit etc, but has royally fucked both knees and both ankles now and hobbles about painfully, like an auld dear.   


Lesson:  Folk get hooked on exercise and end up wearing their bodies out before their time.  Then they are sorry.


Example 2:  In his prime my dad was super-fit.  For a period worked in the police training college.  Would cycle there and back every day, 16+ miles, while coaching PT and running sessions all day at work.  He was always competitive in scotish police squash championships and climbed most munros (some multiple times).  Ran marathons.  Did it do him any good?  Not really.  Now in retirement, he struggles with his weight, has a dodgy ticker, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, had prostate cancer, has knee problems etc.


Lesson: Run about all you want, you cant avoid whatever horrors await in your genetics. (I take after my mum, health wise!)


Example 3: A guy I know vaguely (nice fella)  is mad keen on fitness etc, to the extent he says his "weekend treat" is a bag of crisps.  


Lesson: Being too into fitness etc leads one to become a dullard living a bleak and joyless life.


My own philosophy is:  Enjoy life, eat well, drink well. Try and keep a handle on your weight.  Ensure you can walk 10 miles at a brisk pace without too many problems and all will be well.


Dont worry about having a small pauch.  It is just an auxiliary fuel tank, really.  All these "ripped" guys with no body fat wouldn't last 10 minutes on the Eastern Front, or in some emergency situation.  They will be the first to die, when they cant get access to their health shakes and oaty bars etc.


Fatties will always convince themselves that exercise is pointless

Hate folk that go on about the make of their cars too.


Our's are known as the blue car and the red car. 


I prefer my red Audi S5 to her Blue Merc A43 AMG though.

#1558812 New Stadium Approved

Posted by Nelly on 14 February 2018 - 10:21 AM

I said who with a 4 sided all seated football stadium is getting a licence refused and you posted roofless Italian bleachers with no seats, then continually refer to unknown other clubs refused a certificate as if they’re also comparable. As I said, nobody with a stadium comparable to ours gets a licence refused. There is nothing coming out of Uefa suggesting this.

With our current facilities, there is no danger. If we were rebuilding during the month we’re in Europe, we’d have to play elsewhere. If the main stand had a safety certificate refused, we are decades away from the entire building being shut down, rather than only the capacity reduced, then we’d have to play elsewhere.

Just stating facts instead of brainwashed bedwetting.


ok, they stretched the truth a wee bit to get the new stadium approved.  Happens all the time in politics; scaremongering, doomsday scenarios etc.  You're just going to have to accept it and move on.

If you are against abortion then don't have one.  If you're not, then do.

Advice - don't smack your kid Millertime, doesn't work.  There are much easier, less brutal and more effective ways of instilling discipline, it's not all about punishment.


Toughest thing for you will be putting your kid's needs first

#1398167 Scottish Independence Referendum 2

Posted by Nelly on 14 March 2017 - 03:25 PM

Money is an important consideration.

Money builds hospitals, schools and roads.

Money pays nurses, policemen and benefits.

Misty eyed sentiment doesn't build or pay for anything.

Its isn't hard to understand, no-one said it was.

The best way for Scotland to make its own decisions is to do so as a prosperous part of post-Brexit UK, with its own devolved parliament.

Although Sturgeon is presently going easy on the EU talk, (because she knows a lot of her own indy supporters are also brexit voters), it is virtually guaranteed that Scotland would ultimately end up in the EU.

Then, we would have to get Brussels' permission to implement our own financial budgets, just like (eg) Ireland has to right now.

That's right, the EU tells the irish what they can or cannot spend their money on. Does that sound much like ireland "standing on its own feet and making its own decisions"?


Presently, we in Scotland decide for ourselves what we will spend our money on. Our own Parliament decides. We do not need the permission of any foreign body - unlike EU states.

If you want decisions made in Scotland, you shouldn't vote to change that.

Except they are not even in control of their own money. Some "independence".


Here's your pocket money Nicola, spend it wisely now.  Oh and by the way your share of last month's borrowing is 2 billion pounds, but we'll keep a note of that for you.
