  1. Unashamedly stolen from facebook.
  2. Got stopped by the police at 2 am this morning. "Where might you be going at this time of the morning"? They asked. I replied, "I'm going to attend a lecture about gambling, hookers, alcohol abuse and the effects on the human body, the danger of smoking and staying out late". "Really"? the officer said in disbelief. "And who would be giving such an in depth, substantial lecture at this time of day"? So I told them, "My Wife"!!!!
  3. It was myself and, not covid, just a very heavy cold.
  4. There was also one where Erwin was pulled back by the arm inside the box.
  5. Was heading for Renfrew when this stopped me in my tracks. Opening of the Bascule Bridge in Renfrew - YouTube Closing the Bascule Bridge in Renfrew - YouTube
  6. You prefer the "I'm alright Jack" attitude without even contemplating that you might not be if the UK horde vaccines they aren't going to use now. A completely idiotic thing to do. You aren't focussing on what we agree on because you don't want vaccines that aren't being used to be distributed to the countries less able to buy enough to suit their needs. There is no agreement. You want the UK to hold back essential supplies, just in case. That is the fundamental difference between us. Not small by any means. And "shouting at the clouds"? Did you get that from the Beano? ETA. I'm NOT trying to be righteous. I'm being both logical and selfish. I want to protect me and mine. To do so we need everyone to be vaccinated ASAP. If you can't fathom this then there really is no point trying to explain it to you.
  7. Frothing rage? Stupid statement. I read your post completely. Though I have to say that's becoming less and less useful considering the content of your witterings. And you weren't agreeing with me. You suggested that we look after a stock for booster jabs first. That's not what I was saying therefore you didn't agree. Let me reiterate though I couldn't have been more clear to begin with. The boosters will be no good if the virus mutates to the extent o f nullifying the vaccine.
  8. Because they have NO CHOICE but to put themselves in the firing line, they have been TOLD they have to put themselves there, so it's only right, IMHO, that the Governments protect them as much as possible. The Governments have put in place many protections for people in my age group who are more likely to suffer disproportionately. There is no magic bullet here but I feel it is that Government's obligation to at least minimalize any danger that causes the people they demand go into the lion's den. As for the last paragraph. What don't you get about the word "global"? There is no point having a stock of vaccine if, due to less well off countries not having enough to vaccinate their population, the virus mutates to the extent that that stock of vaccine becomes useless.
  9. We definitely rode our luck today, second half. Never a penalty but we could have had two others, SHOULD have had at least one so probably deserved the slice of good fortune/bad refereeing. I think Yogi will be rightly disappointed not to get a point. Great win and we're now in the driving seat. Don't lose/lose badly next game, assuming the fakes get the wins I expect them to get before round 33, and it's a one game shoot out with Saintees for the coveted 6th spot.
  10. Just got my date with the syringe though I would have been happy enough to wait if the respective governments had decided teachers etc. were to take priority. I do hope the UK government are serious about giving the excess vaccines, which will be numerous, to less wealthy countries, and in tandem with giving us the protection, as this is a global issue. If the pandemic is as real a threat as the likes of WHO say then us getting the jag means diddly squat if it's still circulating and mutating.
  11. Now that is as much as an admission of deflection. Well done for admitting your duplicity.
  12. Deflection. His point is still valid. Try consistency.
  13. If the forwards we have on the park aren't contributing the least damaging position to give youth a chance is in this area. It doesn't severely impact on the rest of the teams performance. I'm not saying it isn't a gamble but if the young lads are showing enough in training then the risks are worth it. If they don't score then we're in the same situation we were prior to them taking their place. A kind of draw/win scenario if you like. And it gives them the much needed game time to continue their progress.
  14. Highly unlikely. The poll that matters happens in May and that will undoubtedly be a massive lift for the independence movement.
  15. Aye. Let's not allow the truth to cloud the sunshine of hope.
  16. It is the nature of polls. There is a margin of error that explains these fluctuations. Next poll could quite easily show 57% for. That would also be within the margin.

    Neil Lennon

    They didn't exist so we couldn't be ANY number of leagues above them.
  18. You fecked it up in the first line. Unless The Vaselines were promoted by The famous Grouse.
  19. This was on TV last night. I couldn't resist.
  20. But even a broken watch can be right twice a day. ETA: Of course he did say quite categorically that his government will follow the data, not the dates. So tonight ladles and jellyspoons, Here are the dates.
  21. Not, "In the hope". That's suggesting it's the only motive. Self determination is the aim. IF we re-join, which I'm sure will happen, then we will have our own voice and, more importantly, the same right to veto that, incidentally, the UK always had and very seldom used. Although I am glad you used the term "re-join" as this is a concession from a union supporter as, for so long it's been suggested we would have to apply to "join".
  22. If you want to talk dictator you need look no further than the guy who ignored the law when procuring PPE through his mates. While I don't agree with everything her government has done, Sturgeon has more common sense than the whole of the UK cabinet put together. I wouldn't trust BoJo and his cronies to tie a shoelace between them. ETA: The UK government has acted, both collectively and individually, to fill the coffers of their donors and friends to the detriment of the country. at least Sturgeon is trying to do the right thing for the people she and her party represent.
  23. No he isn't. ETA: I offer an apology if you've moved to England. I am assuming you live in Scotland.
  24. Au contraire mon ami. I think the way RC played would suit us down to a tee if we have a solid midfield on board. I don't know, and won't guess, whether we will win any game before the split but, with the right attitude, I do believe we have the better players than at least two of them, we are well capable of giving ALL the teams we are about to play pre split a good game. I include the rangers in that as, even last night, they looked vulnerable. United could have been a couple of goals to the good before they struck fortuitously. While it's unlikely we will do what no other team has done in the league, (bookies tend to be right more than wrong), it's not out of the realms of possibility given our cup result.
