  1. Not been on for ages, just seen this topic, as one of the resident Jocks on here (yes I live in Wigan) I have to say the Independence is a joke and I don't know anyone back home who is pro, there will be some but I can't beieve anyone believes Salmond, he's an arsehole
  2. If your sole criteria is an ineffective Scotsman, I'll do the job for half of what we pay Hutton :winkold: Under cut. I'd accept a quarter
  3. Wasn't there myself but 2 of my mates were and they called me immediately after, Both very impressed by an apparently down to earth, apparently honest bloke with a sense of humour. Said the right things and both have come away looking forward to the season
  4. Why are we even arguing Spurs got kicked in the nuts, Glaston has commited Sepukku The world is in it's rightful place
  5. He'll still be here, absolutely no sign of him being sacked and he sure as hell won't resign as he thinks he's brilliant. Nice to see him getting the excuses for next seasons dismal performance in early
  6. I've just discovered that tomorrow is Both McInept and my birthday, Ok I'm a year older than he is, however I am also a Jock but thank the gods I'm not Ginger and regarded as shite at my job
  7. A merry christmas and a happy and prosperous new year to you all
  8. case closed, argument over By any chance do you have a Scottish heritage Mike as the above is basically our national motto
  9. Desperately sad to lose that rare thing - a man with integrity in politics. RIP
  10. New Leader, that would infer they're being led at the moment - debateable
  11. Oh dear, this will cause issues when I've got to trade my 9-3 in, it's a good old bus
  12. Can anyone explain why we're depending on Delph and send Makoun out on loan
  13. What are you trying to prove? I think that he is just trying to get a rise out of you There's no Knead for all this Flour
  14. IMO the quote is fabricated as its from Wikipedia, but it made me chuckle. 633 Squadron Supposedly where George Lucas stole the idea for the Death Star Attack! This all day My favourite story about the Mossie (probably as true as the Goering quote) was that the Yanks used them for reconnasance missions but as unarmed they sent Mustangs as cover and they Mossie had to slow down to let the Mustang keep up
  15. Not really maqroll ask yourself this, how much oil does North Korea have compared to ....... say Iran. As for Obama not considering a hugely popular (in the USA) military adventure before he's up fpr re-election, give us all a break puh lease
  16. The old adage was never so true Turnover = Vanity Profit = Sanity Cash = The Real World
  17. No car with the new job so spent £2900 on a 54 plate SAAB 93, needed a workhorse
  18. Iceland's economy took a major hit when it let its banks fail but it effectively lanced the boil and is now growing again minus the systemic poison created by its banking sector. Worth noting that they ignored Brown's threats to use anti-terrorist legislation against them and gave their people a referendum on what to do next. The people said "bugger the bankers", the sky didn't fall in, and now they are well on the road to recovery because the transfer of wealth from ordinary people to the financial elite was rejected. We did the opposite and other poor saps followed our lead. Instead of their banks going broke entire countries are now drowning under a weight of debt created by the greatest heist in financial history. Well said that man
  19. with possibly the worst, bumpiest runway in the UK
  20. I listened to radio 5 live this morning as well :winkold: (you beat me to the post ) I didn't listen to 5 Live, just read lots of stuff from lots of sources. surely what actually happened was To Bankers - Guys, take a 50% cut or lose it all as Greece will default Bankers - No they won't To Bankers - Yep, we'll let them default and smile when you get sod all Bankers - so 50% or sod all, Hmmmm difficult one that, Ok we'll take the 50 % after all as we've effectively written this down by almost that much in our books anyway and it's good PR and god knows we could use some good PR and we'll get it back stitching you up over Italy, Ireland, Spain and Portugal (and possibly France unless they get their act together) joking aside, I was a strong advocate of the Euro but having seen how some members have treated it I'm exceptionally glad we didn't join and admit I was wrong. The PIIGS issue hasn't gone away the others are still waiting on the sidelines and if you were any of these other governments wouldn't you be looking at the 50% and thinking "we could do that as well" Short term elastoplast at nest
  21. Not from here... And clearly the poster has never been to Prestwich Airport (unlike Elvis) Spelling Nazi here. One assumes you meant Prestwick Airport Bicks
  22. It's not fair, it's not meant to be fair. It's meant as a sticking plaster to cover a small part of the gaping wound that is Eurozone sovereign debt to stop those nice chaps in Banks having to have another Christmas without bonuses, those poor unfortunate, downtrodden, put upon, hardworking leeches on society. Wait til this fails to stop the rot, 100 billion will seem like chickenfeed
  23. The rumour up here is that yesterday he was swanning around the "City" parts of manchester in a Bentley Soft Top, top down of course, playing "loud music" and high fiving anyone in a City shirt Legend
