Scottish Politics Thread

People (media) are hinting that the Right will do very well this time round. That will upset the apple cart.
 
Do Feck orf!!!! I married one of them, took me years to train her to speak Queens English
You was lucky. It's normally the other way around.
"Yes dear" "No dear" "Three bags full"
I was in Dundee and rather liked it, but then I didn't stray far from the pubs.
 
To be fair to them Hull is going through a similar problem with taxis and busses refusing to go into an area after 6 due to a very small number of kids being prates.
When I lived there Brandsholme was renowned for trouble, as a Leconfield driving instructor we were always looking out for kids jumping on the back of our vehicles or throwing rocks, Orchard park was renowned for drugs too.
 
If the SNP do badly in the EU elections will that put an end to indy2. For the last 3 years they have been telling the world that the majority of Scots voted to stay in the EU and if the Brexit party do better than the Greens and the SNP combined will they take the hint or just ignore it.
Why would it? They are the Scottish National Party and independence is the core of their being.

Saw a wee debate elsewhere that a couple of friends are involved in about youths and education in Dundee, or YES city as it is commonly known, here is an extract from a local

Over the past few years they closed 10 schools and built 6 new ones ,double up on pupils. A few months after they opened they had to get portacabin classrooms due to miscalculating the numbers - don't i remember the SNP pledge on education no more that 18 kids to a class, currently running 30+ in YES city.

Now the great education being provided , over 50 teachers short in YES city.

As revealed in last weeks evening paper from a FOI request the number of kids now passing their SATS exams in YES city is at the lowest level in the cities history.

Now back to the youth, gangs of rampant feral kids running amok in all areas, buildings set on fire, vehicles being damaged, buses and taxis not entering certain streets after 1800 hrs, police on the buses in certain areas and no this is not Mogadishu, this is the SNPs proud YES city.
Sounds no different to when I was there in the late 80s well before the SNP got into power.

We actually had a student society which did good works in some of the estates in which I took part. We took disadvantaged kids out on day trips, fed them etc. We were advised not to take any valuables with us then.

There were some areas where you just didn't get off buses then as a respectable chap.

And as for the high rises, since demolished,, you definitely didn't go there if you wanted to keep your knee caps

My youngest brother who still lives in the Burnley area reminded me on Sunday of a time, when I was about 13 and had lived in Burnley for about 2 1/2 years, that I beat up a kid who had been bullying my other young brother in Moorland road park near my home. Apparantly not only did I punch f*ck out of him but I took off my new studded belt and used that on him too.

Burnley, a friendly place where you are either a victim or survivor, guess which one I am :)
 
Dundee, like many places in Fife, was staunchly communist during the 40s until the 60s
they became disheartened with the communists after 650.000 Russians rolled onto the streets of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic to quell the Prague Spring uprising in 68.... how dare the heart of the communist world invade another communist country

My late MinL , the devils current **** sock, who had worked in the docks as a welder during the war , building ships, she then worked in various factories ,, and was very good at what she did (welding) in fact she was probably one of the most competent welders I have ever met ... Fin L was in Navy , becoming a very respected bricky ... both ardent commy bastards... used to leave copies of morning star lying around when I was visiting my then girlfriend
They (Dundee) have been socialist since then ,and now are National Socialist (no similarities between them and another National Socialist country intended ... really ... well maybe) supporters on the whole

but they have two ships and now a few museums in Dundee

Two bids to become European City of Culture fucked off at the high port, and now there is no chance in 2023 because of Brexit.... laugh , I almost rolled on the floor and peed my breeks

Did I mention I hate the ******* place and the gadgees that live there place is a ******* shithole

Just to clear up any possible confusion - Dundee ain't in Fife!
 
Not at all, you stated that in one area (tax) soldiers should be treated to English system, I merely asked if that should apply in all 4 countries to all aspects of life?
Well it can't because the Scots haven't given us an English parliament- that would be nationalistic wouldn't it and we can't have English nationalists can we?

And where you live and lived is better? Far from it and you'd know it if you took your rose tinted specs off for a minute. The Glenrothes area is far worse than most of the areas in Dundee.

never..................Glenrothes... twinned with Chernoblyl?... difference is there is hope for the future in Chernobyl


anyway, we don't live in Glenrothes ,no Siree!... we live in the posh town down the road , just as you do, outside Scumdee

it would have read "any other places in Fife" had I meant ,or intimated anything like that ... Dundee , like many of the older coal towns in Fife are/were very communist ....
