Normal service has resumed, in the the Republic, hurrah!ReplyDelete
I didn't know it had stopped... :)Delete
I was referring to my lack of interest, about the previous post.Delete
Ahhhhh OK. I was worried.Delete
No need to worry, the Republic is a must read; no.1 in my bookmarks.Delete
I'm feeling a bit under the weather at the moment probably a bit grumpy because of it, so take no notice if I'm a bit off.
Mcternan to be fair he is just trying to earn a livingReplyDelete
As a anti-Labour in everything scribbler you pay him
And he slags off the Labour Party er same as
Dear old Tom Harris
I sometimes think they are the same person.Delete
They both write for the Telegraph's mad twins now, don't they?
Like most of your comment Niko - surprise surprise! But lot's of very nasty bastards were 'just trying to earn a living'!ReplyDelete
LOL bless him...he sometimes gets it bang on right.Delete
I think the reverse Union argument trumps even the reverse Greenland one and much more should have been made of it during the 2014 referendum.ReplyDelete
Who in their right mind,which excludes most of the Britnats,would volunteer to sign up for these benefits.
However,Scottish independence is about change and HM government and press have been able to divert attention from these issues to fantasies such as bombing our airports,being forced to use"foreign" currency etc etc.
Not for much longer.
Yes, true. It's incredible how ridiculous it seems when you reverse it.Delete
Heck, there was wide opposition to forming the Union at the time. Indeed, they even attempted it no less than FOUR times - 1606, 1667, 1689 and finally 1706.Delete
Forming the United Kingdom was literally a century-long project. It finally succeeded after the Darien disaster, with English troops stationed in north England and gold to the parcel of rogues. Riots took place over a month in Glasgow and elsewhere.
Let's just hope we don't have to wait 61 years for our second go.
I've always thought the union was like, giving your hard earned wages to your neighbour and waiting for your pocket money back, at their discretion; nobody in their right mind would do such a thing.Delete
If my memory serves me right even after the signing of the Act of Union in 1707 there were riots all over Scotland for around two years. It got so bad that the (still) English army was sent to Scotland to put down the riots and protests.Delete
I believe the first riot/protest actually took place in Dumfries which included a symbolic burning of the Act.
It was incredibly unpopular with ordinary people. But of course the only people who mattered were the nobles and they were bought and sold for English gold, as the man said.Delete
Parcel of rogues.
After the crap that's come out of the Tory party conference this weekend, how could anyone want to be a part of this racist nation.
What next ...yellow stars?
I must admit I have been disgusted by the Labour purge of members. The more I have read and seen on social media I am starting to think that the people saying Tom Watson is pulling the srings from behind are spot on. One guy was writing that he thought Tom Watson was just playing the long game for another challenge one year out from the next GE once they have loaded the NEC and the Shadow Cabinet with who they want by bringing back elections. Bunch of b's if you ask me.
Watson? Another charisma free zone, Bruce.Delete
It would serve them right if they had another one and this time he won by 80-20!
I see most of the right wingers stayed away from his speech, Bruce, including, I heard, Kezia. So much for getting behind him!
But then she said that yesterday so it was bound to have changed by today.
Dumb question, but does anyone know the formal requirements for the source of the article 50 notification?ReplyDelete
Just wondering if some "concerned citizens" could send it, and go over May's head, as it were.
Please invoke Article 50 on Monday and pu us out of our misery.
No Illy. I imagine that it is either the head of government or the head of state. If it is to be done by royal prerogative rather than vote of parliament then I imagine either the Queen or the prime minister on her behalf will have to sign the letter.
I suppose it might be Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs... that is to say Bozo. In which case it might be safer to let Munguin do it, dontya think?
Seriously, I very much doubt a concerned citizen could do it. What if another concerned citizen wrote the next day and said ...no no no... it was my mad old uncle and he's batty!!! (Although that could apply to Bozo!)
I couldn't find a link but I believe the letter has to be delivered by someone who is permitted to represent the UK at the EU Council of Ministers. That could actually be any UK Minister but I would imagine the Prime Minster might do this herself, given the gravity of the situation. Please god, not Bozo. Life is already getting embarrassing over here now that his renown is expanding outside the UK.Delete
Bozo recently said A50 would happen in May. Plenty of press reports suggest January, just to add to the mix. Numerous ongoing legal cases, though, might make it politically hard to pull the trigger. Could these really stop the Prime Minister? Bloody heck, this is like waiting for a root canal.
Perhaps this might help Illy.Delete
Under "Member state invocation" you will find this:
""The notification of article 50 is a formal act and has to be done by the British government to the European council," an EU official told Reuters."
To me this would seem to imply that a government Secretary of State, minister or even Prime Minister herself would be the person involved in the delivery of the Article 50 notification.
Personally I prefer Tris's suggestion, Munguin uses such class in all his writings. LOL
I think it should be me too!!!!Delete
I'm highly regarded in Foreign!
So, Wee Boris the Doris opens his gob ... AGAIN *YAWN* and says that Britain will launch its E.U. exit negotiations early next year and ... *WHAM* ... he gets his knuckles rapped ... AGAIN. (no doubt)ReplyDelete
Maggie mark II has been telling anyone who will listen ... Guy Verhofstadt, Donald Tusk, Martin McGuinness etc, that she will initiate the Article 50 negotiations in the early part of 2017.
Is it me or am I missing something here?
What ... exactly ... is the difference between Maggie Mark II say this and wee Boris the Doris saying EXACTLY the same thing?
I've just had a wee thought. Perhaps wee Boris the Doris didn't get his knuckles rapped for saying WHEN the Article 50 negotiations would start but that they would take LESS than 2 years. Yes that MUST be it otherwise we will surely read about Maggie Mark II getting HER knuckles rapped just like wee Boris the Doris! LOL
Maybe she's not aware that 2017 and next year are one and the same.ReplyDelete
Not everyone is, y'know!
It is to be hoped that your 'pro-union' campaign is given maximum publicity by the Yes campaign and would add that Scotland would contribute a share of HS2, refurbishment and maintenance of the House of Commons/Lords etc etc and other investment in London and the South-east. I'm sure your always intelligent contributors can think of further additions.ReplyDelete
Jimnarlene - don't be grumpy - that's Niko's job!
There's Buck House to be done upDelete
Whether it is you for the first item or not, it is just so the point.
It is, DouglasDelete
I'm having difficulty with my Google account folks, and I can't do any new posts till it is resolved. Sorry. Back as soon as possible.ReplyDelete
Don't tell me, I've jinxed the Republic, my profuse apologies to Munguin and all those at Munguin towers.Delete
I did notice earlier, that I had to log in, to Google, didn't give it a second thought at the time.
Didn't The Donald just claim there is a Google conspiracy against him? This is getting creepy.Delete
Not sure what it is guys. They say there has been a violation of my account!!!Delete
Don't think it was your fault though Jim ... Maybe Mr McTeacake has complained that I said he never got anything right.
Well, Terry, I think I know how he feels.
I'm having to prove I'm not a robot, just to post comments!!!!
The problem is... I AM!!!! (No, not one of yours!)
But I'd like to point out that anything to do with Trump is creepy!
PS Terry... Great post on the idiot Fox!!!Delete
Thank you again for your kind words.Delete
Hope you prove your humanness to google without the use of rubber gloves. Never again!
I would make a sublime piece of commentary but even with my VPN...Chinese censorship is blocking out all pictures on Munguins Republic...ReplyDelete
All I can see is the website template and the writing...I'll comment next time there's writing...
It's not just your good self Dean, seems to be everyone; we can still see your oversized blog picture though.Delete
Nowt to do with the Chinese, this is happening in South Glasgow too!Delete
And Dundee... and even John's wee island... and America where Danny is!Delete
I can't see any pictures either now.ReplyDelete
Give up. I'm as lost as you guys.ReplyDelete
If normal service isn;t resumed soon, then we'll relocate to another provider.
Best to all.
Best wishes. We need to stand up to this.
Oh no, this cannot go on. No Soppy Sunday!ReplyDelete
If you need to crowdfund a shift I'm in.
hells bells - shit just got serious. It started with oversized pictures in the blog roll, weirdness when trying to post, then the pictures went and now it's Sunday and no SS.ReplyDelete
It's time to take a stand!!!
I blame/accuse the fecking SNP - the cap-doffing, forelock-touching servile, 'Britain knows best' bastards!ReplyDelete
You may well laugh Jim...Delete
Munguin may have upset people in high places!!!
I should bloody hope so!Delete
Free the photographs - is this because Windows 10 decided to do a big upgrade?ReplyDelete
Looks like lots of 404 html error messages (content not found).ReplyDelete
Your web server can't find the content,suggest you speak with whoever is responsible.
just the pro-union cyber attack dogs takingReplyDelete
down the Republic...Which I of course deplore
brownlie does have a point it is not
unknown amongst primitive tribes of
extremist nationalists to sacrifice
one of their own to further the cause
LOL Niko. I'll get on to the Sturgeonator immediately on Munguin's private line.ReplyDelete
BIO: Sentthem a message. No reply.
Maria: It could be, but you would have though all would have been affected.
LOL John... I know. I'm on it at the highest possible level.
PP: I know. It wasn't important earlier on but SUNDAY??? WTA*
Thanks SA... That is incredibly kind, but I don;t think we will have to raise money to do it.
I'll look into it over the next few days and keep you informed through this page... unless it disappears.
Thanks for your support .
What if you do a guest post on one of our blogs Tris? Obviously not Niko's...ReplyDelete
I admit that I have no idea of how to set it up though. What do you think?
It's an idea Conan, but I've decided I'm gonna move lock stock and barrel to another host.Delete
Soon as I do I'll get a post up and let you guys know.
Be sometime this week.
Yeah tris and your first post can be about howDelete
Horrid Conan is Turning out since retiring
Beware of the one called Conan, he's another of these 'servile bastards' - has been for years!
Horrid? Have you been dating public schoolboys again Niko?Delete
Conan nothing wrong with that I sayDelete
Is that "How horrid Conan is turning out"... or "How Horrid Conan is turning out"?Delete
Just so I know...
Niko is kinda right, as horrid means hairy.Delete
GCHQ doing a test!ReplyDelete
Mrs M's got it in for me ever since I said that the sight of her naked bust was a bit much to subject the 90 year old Queen to, when she curtsied so low!!!!Delete
Sorry about my last two comments, folks. I forgot that I don't work for the Labour party any more!ReplyDelete
It's Ok John. Even I get forgetful at times!!!Delete
New email: email@example.com.ReplyDelete
Getting error messages when I try to email that.Delete
Did you copy/paste? There is a full stop at the end (....com.), which you will need to remove, then you'll be fine.Delete
Oooops mia culpa.Delete
If the photo above the caption "Well, would you?" was Theresa May the answer would be an emphatic "No"! I do have standards. However, if perchance, it was Jackie Baillie.....ReplyDelete
Incidentally, if you don't get a grip of this blog I'll be forced to emigrate to Niko's Bar - at least you can get a decent pint there instead of left-over Lanliq!
You have standards?ReplyDelete
Ok, I suppose you do, but in honesty, they are fairly low, be honest.
I'm setting up another blog, but it's not as easy as I thought... so please gimme a wee bit of time.ReplyDelete
I promise a Soppy Sunday or whatever day, when we finally get the thing up and running.
Our technical advisor is on holiday this week!
I notice that Mr. Munguin is apparently allowing Tris to publish comments under his name during this interregnum. Nice of him!ReplyDelete
PS: However, at my location, comments by "Tris" are showing up just fine, but without an avatar.Delete
The Honourable Mr Munguin, if you don't mind.Delete
Nothing is clear in this débacle, Danny, bu in this case I can explain. Tris was using the option to post under a name, without him being logged in.... see below the comment box... "Reply as", select "Name/URL"
Ah yes, I see. When I first saw the problem, I immediately checked to see if it might be a login problem at my end. But I saw that my login has stayed OK.Delete
Something I thought I'd never say but Niko has a brilliantly supportive post on his blog!!ReplyDelete
Wow... lovely, John. I've replied over there, but we're both touched by that kindness.Delete
We have a new blog...albeit a bit on the shaky side as yet, but, we'll get there.
And, for fans of Soppy Sundays, there's a variation on that up now.Delete
I'll work oput how to do a blog roll in the near future!
Comments not showing.Delete
I've published them. I think the first time there has to be approval, Conan.Delete
Hopefully after that it works... If not, back to the bloody drawing board.
