  1. Joe Newton works in the Rugby area. He's on here regular. He may be interested. Fully qualified and very experienced climber.
  2. Hmm...im unconvinced on the exact expense to the taxpayer. What i am convinced of is the amount of tax we would have to pay across the board for the first 5 years to boost our economy.
  3. If independence is to work in Scotland then the first thing to be implemented is 18-24 year old unemployed would be drafted for national service.
  4. Mark Carney has stated numerous times, but it always seems to be a non news story, that there is no reason why Scotland cant use its current sterling. Baldbloke there are plenty of people like my father who have voted for Labour for generations but refused to back Corbyn,mostly because of the stance on Trident,who didnt vote in the GE simply because he refused to vote Snp or Greens. Looking at the graphs the demographic that has seen the biggest turn is in the over 60's who once voted Labour but are now Snp. There are 2 parties in Scotland now with a smattering of the greens,lib dems etc. Holyrood is more diverse but id gamble in Labour losing a hellva lot more seats come next election. What will be telli g is how those seats are divided amongst the tories and Snp
  5. Short answer...No The Snps number one priority is independence,by any and all means. They will still be banging in about it regardless of how many referendums they lose,not that id think the next referendum will be lost given the hatred of Boris and his cronnies up here in the north. Baldbloke to answer your question posed to me some pages back id say pro indy/anti EU supporters in the Snp would be in a huge minority. Most are massivley concerned about leaving the EU and are using this to curry votes from those less informed...
  6. I havent been on arbtalk for a while and just today came across this thread.It makes for interesting reading thats for sure. Any of you who know me by my previous posts know im pro independence but not at any cost. Im not anti english or anti british, i fought beside lads from all over the UK and were all the same when you avoid talking politics. Where the game changes , in the forces,is with the rupherts(officers) Usually stuck up,self entitled arrogant pricks born with a destinct superiority complex and a silver spoon up their fuckin arse,exactly the same as most tory Mps. Given that Scotland has returned more Snp Mps to westminster means the thirst for independence has indeed increased. Enough for a second referendum? Well that depends which way you look at the figures but figures can be squewed to suit anyones rhetoric so im not sold on the 81% claim by Hosie. I agree with trigger on most of what he says on these pages im also pro independence,anti EU membership but we differ in the fact i vote Snp,i'll just add at this point that the Snp are by no means socialist the are pro capitalists who actually fit into the neo liberal model,the same as Labour under Tony Blair. I vote Snp as i see them as a vehicle to independence and anyone who votes Snp knows that is their number one priority. The last 2 elections have seen an upsurge in Snp votes and with it comes the undeniable democratic right of the scottish people to decide on our future. Should the rest of the UK be allowed to vote on Scottish independence? I dunno... I think most english folk would say if they want to go let them. Most see us as dour faced fuckers who steal all the money and the rest of the UK would be better off without us anyway. Some on here have looked to the past to justify independence but for me its more important to look to the future. I believe we would be a wealthier nation,not wealthy just wealthier,than we are now if we had full control of our nation. As for the once in a lifetime shite i think its exactly that- shite! 3 general elections in 5 fuckin years dictates that politics changes,peoples opinions change,priorities change so an election or refetendum csn always be justified in guaging the will of the people.
  7. The wife and i have never spoken about this after it happend because it put the shitters up us both. We were in mull couple of years back.We hired a cottage up near Calgary beach,stunning beach if you ever go there. We decided to take the walk around the headland that starts at calgary and finishes at the road which leads to the cottage,weve done it a few times on our visits to Mull. About 11am we were heading along the path,broad daylight,no one around windy but not blowing hard. I looked ahead and saw a wee girl,dunno what age but she looked small,long dark hair and a brown dress on.We were approximatley 150 metres away.The girl ran down the hill and onto the track we were walking on and kept running onto an old peir. The peir is in serious disrepair infact its only a third intact. The wife said to me "where did she come from?", i said dunno. The girl walked out into the peir and walked towards the end of it, weve been on this walk before so we knew the peir was dangerous. The girl kept walking,i dunno how else to say this but she kept walking out till she was walking on air... that part of the peir had gone! She wasnt floating she was walking in air as if she was walking on something solid,then she vanished. She didnt fade she didnt drop she vanished. Imagine you press a button to swith off your tv,its instant,just like that. All this took maybe a 45 seconds. There were no other people,there is no peir where she was walking,she was walking on air over the sea then vanished...in broad daylight at 11 am. It doesnt creep me out,it just makes me question things i thought were fact.
  8. I said they gave me a giggle i didnt turn in to frank bleedin spencer Calm down
  9. The shorts gave me a giggle.... Yanks dont care Neither do i to be fair...😁
  10. If your cutting big oak limbs id say the stihl 201tc with a 14 inch bar full chisel chain would be more suited to your needs.
  11. The saw is ported but it gives you an example of its potential. https://youtu.be/xscrsh6xcgs
  12. As mick said above its more of a pruning saw but ive took down limes, sycamores and a couple of decent sized beech so it will do a job for you. Ive seen a vid on you tube of an echo 2511 with a 20 inch bar on it ringing up a decent stem. I ll post a link when i find it bud
