Morning Munguin and Tris, had it round the other way and thought I cannot start that way, honour due and all that. Thank you so much for putting this up. I picked it up earlier this morning started listening but lost it half way through so I am off to listen to this again, told Husband about it and I know he will love it as much as I have. So refreshing, so honest and so very US. Spent the last two weeks in the company of so many charming and polite people, okay some horrors also, but even Barbara who loathes Obama would never be as rude as some here are to our First Minister. Now awaiting Niko, who has a serious problem of fact and fiction.
Ha ha... yes... It's a bit like The Queen (and prince whatsit). But I know me place!!It was good to hear this. I mean it's all true. But you'd never know it unless you were following the debate on Twitter and facebook.I have to say if this debate had taken place 20 years ago, the Britnats would have won hands down. Even though we all know Cameron is a liar, and we know that people like Brown and darling were responsible for the collapse of the economy, and Iain Duncan Smith is a pathological liar and probably the most incompetent minister in the world ever... the BBC and MSM still print what they say on this subject without question, whilst calling them out on their foul incompetent policies.Seats in House of Lords for editors and proprietors ... big rise in BBC licence fee?I don;t have a problem with people being rude about Alex. Or Cameron. But I do have a problem with the press being liars and the BBC being in the hands of a pile of lying cheating weirdos.
Hey Tris, I posted a link to this on the Guardian at 9.05, Great minds...
didnt realise you could get outta bed that early
Great minds indeed Conan... Oh hello Niko...
Don't judge everyone by your own standards Niko.Why weren't you chucking eggs at Murphy today? Job done?
He's too mean. Waiting for Murphy to buy the eggs!
The American lad, Will McLeod, fancies coming over to see things first hand but he's a bit skint at the moment. Spare a few bob, guv?http://www.gofundme.com/dw0z0k
Fair enough. I've tweeted it.My money is going to YES stuff for now, so I won't be funding it, butgood luck to Will.
The ball is rolling.
Bienvenue en Ecosse Will...
trisUmm the Americans aint they the ones who led on the illegal war in Iraq which Alex condemns day after day and now they are your heroes.The FACTS on using the English pound tell a different story to the hype and spin of Nationalist ner do wells but why change a habit of a lifetime and let the truth be heard ..Only 6 points behind instead of twenty although 6 nil would be considered a good score me if its 1 nil on the day to the union we will all be happy . not sure about some others though.....Helena reckon yer a pudding burner now get back in the kitchen and us menwill sort out Scotlands future ...
Wowza.Are we *sure* niko isn't a spoof account?If you're not:I know a lot of americans, most of them are decent folk. I can't stand washington's policy choices.I am capable of telling the difference between a people and their rulers.
Ñico, the English can keep their pound as we will keep ours. Your glorious leader, the Flip Meister; himself said so.JimnArlene
Illy, Tris and I know Niko from 'way back, when all this blogging stuff took off after the comments page of the Scotsman got too troll infested.He occasionally posts sense, though that is probably Taz his dug at the keyboard...
IllyNah Im the real deal iffen you achieve Independence and the terror startstris and Conan will take you to the lamppost I will be hanging from .
Get counselling niko, there's no need to be terrified and hang yourself. Lots of countries are independent. It's natural for a nation.
Niko Pet, don't do it.Phone the Samaritans0131 221 9999
the Nats Just remember this to paraphrase Putin ' We could take Dundee in a fortnight '
Niko.Not all Americans supported the illegal war. Just like most British people didn't, but, let's be honest when there is some presidential butt to be kissing, a Congressional Medal and the patronage of the American president (how y0u think he got all these high paying jobs... where he actually does nothing?), the mere will of the voters is of nothing to a man of Blair's self importance.Point about the poll is that it is moving in the right direction, or rather in the left direction. With an accuracy level that is unknown it's hard to take any poll seriously. On average a poll of around 1200 will be + or - 3% on an absolute question about which there can be no dubiety adn no embarrassment. Add to that that there is absolutely no safe way to weigh the figures for a referendum like this and your polls become only an indication of direction of travel.We all know how they have been travelling.Who could take Dundee in a fortnight? Putin?Of course he could. The military is all protecting London, and now Cardiff because the second most self important person in the whole universe is hosting a meeting there.He could take it in 10 minutes.
PS Niko.Are all you unionists misogynists?
Nico, from your hero; I think it sums you up.....Hell, I never vote for anybody, I always vote against.W. C. FieldsYou're welcome, JimnArlene
jimmnyA thing worth having is a thing worth cheating for. W. C. Fields
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...
Tak Dundee in a fortnicht? That wee nyaff? Like tae se him treh. Sair puss day fir fur him eh think!Mind we gave Churchill his erse in a sling.
LOL good one Barney.Mind Churchill didn't have a nuclear bomb or 500 to drop on Cox's stack (or he probably would have).
Alex Salmond says that the Bank of England was set up by the United Kingdom as a whole and for the UK as a whole, including the part that he would like to become independent. He therefore deduces that in the event of a Yes vote, the Bank of England should continue to be a shared resource.He also says that the exploitation of North Sea oil, which was set up by the UK as a whole and for the UK as a whole, including the part that he would like to become independent. He deduces that in the event of a Yes vote, North Sea oil should be wholly a Scottish resource.Can anyone spot a flaw in his logic?
To be honest, neither can I.
Me too and there is a great big intellectual hole in yours.
