    Scotland - Framework out of the pandemic - 23rd February 2021

    I wasn't for one minute suggesting that one load of "supporters" should be allowed to go ahead while another group shouldn't. What annoys me more than anything is that this thread has once again been allowed to descend into nothing but a stupid, childish anti-SNP rant. Debate about the...

    Law Change will require voters to show photo ID

    There was an alleged case of personation in the Edinburgh North and Leith constituency during the recent Scottish Parliament election. I recall that the news people at the time said it had to be investigated as potential fraud, but that the chances were that it was simply a clerical error. Let's...

    Scotland - Framework out of the pandemic - 23rd February 2021

    In my opinion it shouldn't be allowed at all.

    The Missus/The Wife

    It's a good word, though :) *Edit* Try "Stairheid rammy"

    The Missus/The Wife

    What if the wife referred to you as "the husband"? Would there be such a stramash?

    Lothian Group discussion (Lothian City, Lothian Country Bus and East Coast Buses)

    It's not really the done thing to discuss moderation decisions and we usually delete such posts. I will make an exception in this case, however. I use several devices. I have my phone and a tablet which both run Android. I completely understand that it can be a total pain in the backside to...

    Scotland - Framework out of the pandemic - 23rd February 2021

    You're the one who insisted that you wouldn't abide by any of the restrictions, yet you jokingly suggest that people in Moray and Glasgow should be contained. Is it possible that you're the "super-spreader"? ;) Oh, change the record. Wasn't there a law passed about "repetitive beats"? I'm...

    Lothian Group discussion (Lothian City, Lothian Country Bus and East Coast Buses)

    Apologies to those who had posts deleted with the "Referring to deleted content" reason. I realise it's not your fault, but I would like to remind everyone that your posts should make sense. I can forgive the odd spelling mistake and I will correct these if it appears to be a genuine error, but...

    Forum Jokes

    How many brexiteers does it take to change a lightbulb? None. The lightbulb has not yet arrived in the UK as a result of not having the correct paperwork and we don't want those naff foreign-made bulbs anyway. We'll make do with candles until Mr Dyson invents the super-duper Great British...

    You missed one out - the person who says "that is a very courageous decision, Minister" :)

    Bus Manufacturer News & Discussion

    So "Chinese made" automatically means poor build quality, according to this logic. Do you have anything to back this up? That suggests to me that it's the body that's not rigid enough. As far as I'm aware the Scania "chassis" consist of front and rear modules with a variable-length mid section...

    The Missus/The Wife

    How can "my wife" be misogynistic when it's a term that same-sex couples use as well? Using "the missus" is just an informal way of saying "my wife" and I really don't see a problem with it. It's how you describe your relationship to someone; should we ban the use of "my mum" or "my granda"...

    Plastic recycling confusion

    I honestly don't think they expect everything to be completely spotless when you put recycling out for collection. A lot of this stuff is manually sorted, and I can understand why they want you to at least give plastic bottles a basic rinse before you chuck them in the bin. For stuff like...

    Poll: Views on tattoos

    When I was in my 20s it was fashionable for people to get a "lightning bolt" or "Celtic band"-style tattoos, and I thought they looked quite good. I would certainly have considered something similar for myself if I didn't have a hatred of anything stabbing into my skin. When I started working it...

    Problems caused by pigeons roosting...

    Puff pastry? ;) *Edit* I have collared doves and wood pigeons that come down to feed in my garden and they're nothing but seed-hoovers. The wood pigeons in particular are getting rather plump and I often wonder if I should try to get a return on my investment!

    Problems caused by pigeons roosting...

    Typical @DarloRich response there! I suppose some would say that the same solution could be used to solve a multitude of problems ;) Schrodinger's pigeons?

    Lothian Group discussion (Lothian City, Lothian Country Bus and East Coast Buses)

    Ok, we've already established that certain services have gone and won't come back. Constant speculation about what the route planners might have been thinking is utterly pointless and if new services appear in future there is no guarantee that they'll be the same as before. There's nothing wrong...
