    Catalonia Independence

    Polling going well over there. Rubber bullets and stun grenades all round at the moment. No mention of this from 'He Who Must Be Ignored' Must be hiding under the table........I mean leading the protests from the front.

    In the light of this: BBC going on in Aylesbury, which has a political composition of this: Aylesbury Political Composition Does anyone want to retract, or amend their views?

    SNP - What next?

    For whatever electoral voting reasons we now have 56 SNP MPs in the House of Westminster. Given 'Call me Dave' has a working majority, I'm struggling to see what material difference they will make to the mix apart from putting a far greater focus on Scotland in the media, brassing off the Welsh...
  4. Polling update

    Tight but Labour maintain their lead. However a yes vote for Scottish independence would make it extremely hard for them to form a meaningful government. Even with a technical majority they would need to enter into coalition if it were only a matter of a year to 18 months after the gen election...

    Scottish Independence

    What's your view? I've yet to be convinced about how an independent Scotland would survive. I suspect this is a bargaining tool for more devolved power and concessions...

    Politics in 2014

    Just seen this press release from our PR team with some special bets for 2014. Interesting (but not surprising) to see UKIP favourites for most seats at the Europeans. Who'd have thought that a few years ago? Ladbrokes latest betting 2014 Political predictions Scottish Independence referendum...

    EU Vote - In or Out?

    Surprised that this hasn't cropped up today but hey ho. Our betters today will be voting on whether we, the voters who put these clowns into The Houses of Parliment are grown up enough to have a referendum on our continued membership of the European Union. Both Labour and the Tories are putting...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...

    Dwight Yorke - Born to Score

    BORN TO SCORE? What would you do if you were a professional footballer? How would you act? I know what you're going to say, you're going to say the same as me. You're going to say that you'd give it everything. You're going to say that you'd be tee-total, that you'd train hard, that you'd...

    I thought my fellow anti-BNP friends would enjoy my friends take on BNP and UKIP leaflets for the Euro-Elections: "This evening as I settle down to more work, I choose to not not respond to the provocation of European election flyers from the UK Independence Party and the British National...
  12. UK Independence

    VAT was more than doubled from 8 to 17.5% to fund our joining the EU. In these harsh financial times does anyone feel that we simply cannot afford the luxury of retaining EU membership. Does anyone know the total cost to the country and per person ? It is £1000 for every adult p.a. £80 per...
  13. And the Scottish want Independence?

    I give them 6 months before the country descends into Anarchy with people like this around: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/tayside_and_central/7616451.stm

    If Mr Salmond gets his own way

    Alex Salmond says we should go our separate ways, with Scotland taking the oil. But would Scotland be any better off? According to Tyler's fag packet, a fiscally independent Scotland looks like this (2006-07 figures- for derivation see footnote): Domestic (non-North Sea) taxes: £40bn plus...

    Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Likening your guidance, as an employer, to the counsel of a father is a tactic that very few football managers could get away with, but what might sound melodramatic and over-familiar in some cases is perfectly suitable for Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo. "If you are...
  16. Scottish Independence

    Looks like SNP are going to have a referendum on Scottish independence in next couple of years. There are currently no plans for a referendum on English independence, but if you could send a message to the people of Scotland as they consider their future, what would it be?

    The B.N.P.

    So, they have done extremely well again this year, coming 5th in the london Mayoral Vote. But do we really know the truth about the B.N.P? Have you actually read the manifesto and mission statements? Ok, so they are a bit far right of the middle, but they want the best for this country. In my...

  20. North Essex v South Essex

    Pasted from Col Utd message board. This is something our Yorkshire friends might understand. Essex is actually two counties, like your Ridings. North Essex is a classy place that contains Englands oldest town, oysters, Tiptree jam and the landscapes that inspired John Constable. Divided from us...
