The SNP have been told to join the queue to join the EU if they ever get their independence. Also adopt the euro and reduce their GDP debt which is running at 7 % higher than Greece apparently. Maybe all the free stuff has caught up with them, tuition, prescriptions, dentists and more.
Suck it up sweaty we are oot.

I've just been told that Nicola Sturgeon's nickname at University was "seaweed". Apparently even the tide wouldn't take her out.

All fair enough except dentists do charge; not as much as in London but they still cost. Eye tests are free though.

The only way they get independance is if the English are allowed to vote to.

Until I read your second sentence, I assumed it was some kind of uni reference to her hair; either head or undercarriage.

There are plenty of armchair extremists of all stripes. From those hanging off a radical preacher's every word, to the racially short circuited kowtowing to neo nazi types. All dim enough to be dragged down naive and dangerous ideological dead ends but too cowardly and pathetic to do anything about it for the most part. Thankfully. Our security services do an exemplary and unsung job of both sniffing these miscreants out when they cross the line. There's definitely though, as you suggest, an argument to be made that people do things in the name of religion that they would rarely do otherwise; a point Hitchens would often make. And depending on the age you live in, not all religions are created equal. For most governments cheap labour trumps almost any other consideration.

As for the Hongkongese, some I've known have an appreciation of our country than many here don't even have anymore.. the government may well do their bit if things get nasty.

I hope so as long as the UK decides who can fish in our waters.

I am fine with the EU having annual quota rights but they need to be based on the difference between what the UK fleet can supply and the maximum quota allocation. If there is any spare capacity that is what should be available to the EU.

I never understood why there wernt joint boats who would take any excess and sell on to split the profits. Why throw tons of dead fish back.
