    Her 'deal' was worse, much worse than simply staying in - leaving the border issue aside.  It still would be.

    Certainly not a striker who can play the one man role up front but who is ? It's a thankless task. Defence is good but something will need to change to get more bodies forward if you are playing one striker. Seen quite a few times we had lose balls in the Hearts penalty box with no Saints players ready to pounce.

    I'm pretty confident that you will be.
    Both endgames are about countries being independent . I am all for countries being independent .
    Is it possible that , on the off chance that , the same forces that rallied to thwart a Yes vote in Scotland are now working to thwart leaving Europe going through . .just a thought , that's all . .

    Initially, initially you may well be right but we were all willing to take a hit in 2014 had we got independence in that vote..

    The list I posted from the US Government website.
    I know there are a few polices that people don’t agree with, the border wall for example but that was one of his pledges during his election campaign. I believe it was also one of Obama’s but he didn’t go through with it.
    As for the Iranian nuclear deal that he pulled out of. I don’t know enough on that one but if as is widely claimed that Iran would have military grade weapon capabilities within a couple of years then I wouldn’t take that risk.
    I believe that with Iran and North Korea Trump has made threats of military strikes to bring them to the negotiating table. I don’t believe he actually wants a war with them.

    Goodwin knows where the problem lies which is good. Defence is sound. Midfielders generally are good. We dont have a goal machine if we did he would not be at us long.  More coaching on attacking midfield and strikers.  I'm not a fan of a loan striker it rarely yields goals. Goodwin will get the balance right it might take a bit longer than we hoped.

    That wasn’t the question. Taking away the grammatical errors etc, could you tell me if anything his administration have taken credit for is beneficial to the American people?
    I guess there are individuals that will never give him any credit regardless of what he’s achieved just because they don’t like him as a person.

    Before Brexit the £ was worth about $1.45.  Now it is worth about $1.13.
    similar to the £ decline v the euro.
    I’d say that that is a pretty ruinous (not to mention ‘rapid’) decline.  Ergo our country is being ruined.

    If you’re referring to Brexit then I’d have to disagree. They (Tories, Labour, Lib Dem’s et al) have had over three years to get it sorted. That’s not a sole responsibility of BJ.
    If the parties honoured the wishes of the 17.4 million instead of stalling at every opportunity then we’d probably be out the EU by now with a deal.

    In the last three games we've only had four shots on target with most of the misses going over the bar.  This is basic trying to keep the ball down and that means hitting it with the right part of the foot; you know, school boy stuff.
    I think the players we have are reasonable what we need to improve on is the coaching.

    He is right of course that no other party initially opposed the "named person" legislation , it was campaigners that took it to the courts and then when the Supreme court said it breached Human Rights then Swinney did another climb down .  SNPbad?

    Love him or loathe him, Trump has done very well for America since he was elected, no one can honestly say he hasn’t. His success has seen his ratings rise in the polls which I believe will see him win the next election.
    Would you (not meaning you personally) rather see a British PM have the same success but one that doesn’t give a feck about what people say about him, or someone that’ll tell the electorate what they want to hear to get into number 10, and then backtrack on the promises made? I know which I’d prefer. I don’t know enough about BJ to say if he can do the same for Britain as Trump has for the US.

    Then why has there not been a public outcry or a push from the SNP to save the legislation?

    They KNOW it is not manageable or widely supported!

    People involved in child protection have said as much!

    Better cutting losses and saving damage to the system through something well intended but not thought out!

    Example?

    Opposite end of the scale... Dementia.
    Scottish Government legislated that every person diagnosed with dementia was entitled to a full years post diagnostic support from a named nurse.

    Well meaning and idealistic.

    Also harmful!

    Our local CPNs gave 6 monthly visits to people with dementia and their carers.

    Great system. Working well.

    New legislation passed.

    No additional funding.
    No additional hours.

    Community Health Team pulled all six monthly visits to concentrate on the post diagnostic support.

    Surprise.... Much of it is rejected as people are not ready for intensive support at that stage.

    Meantime... People in dire need of support are left wanting as Government targets have to be met!

    Childcare has been spared this yet you see it as an attack on the infallible masters!

    Shame on you.

    Feck me. At 15 I thought getting the bus from Foxbar to Smith-hill Street was a big adventure, walking to Elderslie baths during the summer holidays was a major expedition.

    “Boys, what you want to do on Wednesday, a trip to the Magnum Centre, or a trip to a war zone thousands of miles away?”

    The likes of the BBC, ITV, Sky were full of stories regarding ISIS so I don’t believe all that pish about how they didn’t know what they were getting themselves into.

    Was in the old town yesterday while on the high street noticed a new establishment Peri Peri Chicken. So went in and ordered a hot peri peri Pitta bread. carry out. Handed a bag I went out to sit on one of the stone pillars to eat. Glad I was leaning forward for my first bite. Yellow sauce came flooding out the pitta bread not just a drip it poured out. It could have been all over my clothes. Next no napkins in my bag so I popped back into the shop oh sorry forgot to give you napkins.  Would have been embarrassed going back over the road with sauce down my clothes.  You have been warned be careful.  Taste 6 out of 10 for me.
