    2. David Smith says:

      Ross Thompson got a job as an undertaker cause he felt dead Ernest about it…

    3. galamcennalath says:

      An Englishman, an Irishman, and a Scotsman when into a pub.

      The Englishman want to leave, so they all had to go.

    4. Andrew MacGregor says:

      As I’m further south, what’s the weather like up north in Bath?

      Here in Devon, it’s blowy but pleasant.

    10. Andrew mac says:

      Not sure if you’ve covered this but how will you go about vetting and selecting candidates if and when the wings party gets off the ground? How long will it take and have you costed it out?
      I’d like to be able to vote for you on the list.

    11. Ken500 says:

      Some folk liked that programme. ‘The Young ones’. Who were young.

      Wonen refused pension rights. They might be able to claim under their husband’s. Or go for unemployment or sickness rights. Welfare benefit? It could be cheaper giving them their pensions.

      Women retired now were refused pensions rights. If they worked P/T they were not included. Some were advised to pay lower stamp to get husband’s pension rights. Bad Gov advice. Husbands would often retired later.

      Cherie Blair took the case to make sure they did not get it applied retrospectively. The cause was lost in Court. Although it would have been difficult to get all the information necessarily collected.

    12. Glenn says:

      Ok, Stuart. A question then. In the event of all the stars aligning properly and independence becoming a reality, would a written Scottish Constitution be a desired entity? If so, how would it be drafted and by whom?

      I like the idea of a written constitution that cannot be changed by a simple parliamentary majority (e.g. as in the US) , so it would be important to get it right.

    13. Jon Drummond says:

      Glasgow boy brings new girlfriend to meet his family.

    14. Ken500 says:

      Thought Rev was off organising Wings Party. Bit late. Might be impossible, Still time Holyrood election?

      Election soon. Interesting times.

    15. Ken500 says:

      The State legislation is devolved Gov in US. State legislation dominates day to day matters. Fed constitution. Changed by State legislation.

    16. Smeddum says:

      Should be something worth hearing on Saturday at the end of the AUOB March for Independence in Edinburgh. Who knows, the media might even mention it. Or is that wishful thinking?
      Anyway, big turnout needed, folks.

    17. Conan the Librarian says:

      Two goldfish in a tank.

      “How do you start this thing?”

    18. Andrew MacGregor says:

      Can someone explain to me how Scotland can progress in the Rugby World Cup? Ireland hammered us, and we need a bonus point in all remaining matches. But I still doon’t see how we can progress.

      I was locked up in a prison cell and beaten severely by some police officers.
      The next day while imprisoned the guards severely beat me up.
      The following day I was to be released but not before the Group 4 facilitators beat me up.
      I walked into the Tory Party conference yesterday and heard Boris’ speech.
      Wish I’d stayed in prison.

      I sold my vacuum the other day.

      All it was doing was collecting dust.

    24. Bill Hume. says:

      I share your frustration.

      It’s like Waiting for Goddot, but much worse…….exactly much worse.

      We can only hope that this is the ‘phony war’ and sense will soon break out among the populus.

      I don’t know any (clean) jokes.

      Never mind. Thankfully there’s still WGD. A portent: the unicorn on the royal coat of arms of Buck House has shed its chains and escaped:

    27. Effijy says:

      I was in a Bar with some other guys from my SNP Branch

    31. Artyhetty says:

      Dear HMToryGov,

      What’s wrong with having freedom of movement? What’s so good about NOT having freedom of movement with 27 other countries?

      I look forward to your prompt reply.

      Thanks,

      Every young and old person in Scotland who was NOT born into tons of cash and mega pompery, by whichever means their family became rich, fair means or foul.

      re Bill Hume @2.10

      I can’t remember, what does happen at the end of ‘Waiting for Godot’?

    33. hackalumpoff says:

      After she woke up, a woman told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine’s day. What do you think it means?”

      “You’ll know on Valentine’s Day.” he said.

      On Valentine’s Day, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife.
      Delighted, she opened it to find a book entitled….
      “The Meaning Of Dreams.”

    34. hackalumpoff says:

      A Jew, a Catholic and a Mormon were having drinks at the bar after an interfaith convention.
      The Jew, bragging about his virility said “I have four sons, one more and I’ll have a basketball team!.”
      The Catholic poo-poohed this accomplishment, stating, “Thats nothing boy, I have 10 sons, one more and I’ll have a football team.”
      To which the Mormon replied, “You fellers ain’t got a clue. I have 17 wives, one more and I’ll have a golf course!.”

    35. Sarah says:

      Winner of funniest post: Dr Jim at 11.40 p.m. on previous thread – my husband and I are wiping away tears of laughter. Wonderful stuff.

      My joke entry:
      Comedian to audience: “Anyone here from Fife?”
      Audience member: “Aye.”
      Comedian: “Your bananas are terrible.”

      This joke has tickled me for years! [Sad, aren’t I.]

    36. hackalumpoff says:

      Two blondes were walking through the woods and they came to some tracks. The first blonde said “These look like deer tracks,” and
      the other one said, “No, they look like moose tracks.”
      They argued and argued for a while and they were still arguing
      when the train hit them.

      The young man intrigued,follows them and eventua!ly witnesses the most ferocious session of lovemaking he has ever seen from the old couple against the same fence.

      He discreetly stops the old man and asks him if he has always had such enthusiasm and was there a secret to it?

      “No son but 50 years ago that bloody fence wisnae electrified”

      Hope Janey Godley Kids Reading for her Saturday gig @ the Meadows. not that she needs help. She is Scotland’s comedy Queen for sure..

    47. Mist001 says:

      BTW, I was reading this morning that the USA has imposed a 25% tariff on certain goods from the EU including Scotch whisky, so what’s the story with that? If the UK is leaving the EU in three weeks time, Scotch whisky won’t be an EU product any longer so the tariff will be ineffectual. It’ll take longer to type up the documents than the tariff will apply!

      Or does the USA know something that we don’t?

    48. dadsarmy says:

      Anyone got any questions?

      A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?” The dad says,
      “Well son, let me try to explain it this way:

      I’m the breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me capitalism.

      Your mother, she’s the administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the government.

      We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the people.

      The nanny, we’ll consider her the working class, and your baby brother, we’ll call him the future.

      Now, think about that and see if that makes sense.”

      The little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has soiled his nappy. The little boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

      The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.”

      The father says, “Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.”

      The little boy replies, “Well, while capitalism is screwing the working class, the government is sound asleep, the people are being ignored and the future is in deep shit.”

    54. hackalumpoff says:

      When our lawn mower broke down, Mrs Hackalumpoff kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.

      Somehow I always had something else to take care of first – the boat, car, fishing, shed – always something more important to me.

      Finally, she thought of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.

      I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I came out again and handed her a toothbrush. “When you finish cutting the grass,” I said, “you might as well sweep the driveway.” The doctors say I will probably walk again, but I will always have a limp…..

      They all decide to try their religion on the local grjzzly bear population. Three weeks later they meet ul in hospital where the Rabbi is ill to discuss how it went.

      The lriest recounts how he read from the Bible to the bear and when the bear attacked he splashed him with holy water, which calmed the bear.

      Ghe paxtor told how he met the grizzly and read fire and brimstone from the good book, and when the bear attaked they both fel! in the river wher the pastor baptised the bear making it instantly docile.

      “Oh, really?” says the stockbroker, sighing with relief.

      “Yes,” says the cellmate, “I killed a vicar.”

      Two teenagers, Fred and Joe, meet after school and Fred is all excited: “Man I was at the most awesome party this weekend! We went to this dude’s house and guy had toilets made of pure gold!”

      “No way!”

      “Yes way,” insists Fred, “come with me and check it out for yourself if you don’t believe me.”

      Twenty minutes later they’re ringing the doorbell at the place. A middle-aged lady opens and Fred eagerly asks her, “Hi! I’m sorry to bother you but there was a party at your house yesterday and my friend doesn’t believe that you have toilet bowls of pure gold!”

      The lady looks at him for a moment and then yells into the inside of the house, “Roger, the pig that shat in your trombone is here!”

      Best and biggest Joke……….Willie Rennie Lol…..politician Lol….AND leader of a party Ha Ha Ha Ha BLol

    74. Wilson says:

      It’s an oldie … but still pertinent.

      While walking down the street one day Boris is hit by a truck and dies.?? His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
      ??’Welcome to heaven,’ says St. Peter. ‘But before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see such a high-ranking official around these parts and we’re not sure what to do with you.’??
      ‘No problem, just let me in,’ says Boris.
      ??’Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.’
      ??’Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,’ says Boris.
      ??’I’m sorry, but we have our rules.’?? And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
      The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his old friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
      ??Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake hands, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.??They play a friendly game of golf, feed some ducks and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.??
      Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly & nice guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before they realise it, it is time to go.??
      Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises….??
      The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.??’Now it’s time to visit heaven.’??
      So, 24 hours pass with Boris joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. He has a good time and, before he realises it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
      ??’Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.’??
      Boris reflects for a minute; ‘Well, I would never have said it before, heaven has been delightful, but I really think I would be better off in hell.’??
      So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.??
      Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.??He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.??
      The devil comes over to him and puts his arms around his shoulders. ‘I don’t understand,’ stammer Boris;? ‘Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and I ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, fed the ducks and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable.?What happened? ‘??
      The devil looks at him, smiles and says, ‘ Yesterday we were campaigning….??Today you voted!’

      A farmer named Hamish had a car accident.

      In court, the lorry company’s hot-shot solicitor was
      questioning Hamish.

      ‘Didn’t you say to the Police at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine?’ asked the solicitor.

      Hamish responded: ‘Well, I’ll tell you what happened. I had just
      loaded my favourite cow, Bessie, into the…’

      ‘I didn’t ask for any details’, the solicitor interrupted. ‘Just
      Answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine!’?’

      Hamish said, ‘Well, I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down the road…’

      The solicitor interrupted again and said, ‘Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the police on the scene that he was fine. Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.’

      By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Hamish’s answer and said to the solicitor: ‘I’d like to hear what he has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie’.

      Hamish thanked the Judge and proceeded. ‘Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favourite cow, into the trailer and was driving her down the road when this huge lorry and trailer came through a stop sign and hit my trailer right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurt, very bad like, and didn’t want to move.

      However, I could hear old Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident, a policeman on a motorbike turned up. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her, and saw her condition, he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.

      Then the policeman came across the road, gun still in hand, looked at me, and said, ‘How are you feeling?’

      ‘Now what would you say? ‘

      The man says ” yes officer,I bashed her head in with a spade,and now I’m going to bury her…

      The policeman takes another step back and says ” Would you mind just waiting right there sir till I call my sergeant”?

    103. Welsh Sion says:

      Here’s my story. (Apologies for length.)

      59. (of 60.)

      Four men in a nightclub

      George, Dai, Jock and Mick/Mike were work colleagues at Yookay Ltd. and shared the same building. George and Dai tended to work close together (despite Dai not really enjoying such a set up), whilst Jock and Mick/Mike had a little more autonomy within their own offices. George tended to think of himself as being the most important member of their group – the Team Leader or the David Brent, if you like.

      Consequently, and in the nature of office politics at Yookay Ltd., he tried to control the work practices of Dai, Jock and Mick/Mike; a habit the other three had long grown tired of. Well, although I say the other three had long grown tired of George’s domineering persona, they had not however, as yet, taken the final step of breaking up their partnership with him.

      George then considered himself the leader of their section and tended to exert his influence even outside the offices of Yookay Ltd. Dai was of the type not to upset the apple cart and tended to keep moody silences; keeping his head down and getting on with his projects.

      Jock however was rather more vocal and would often raise his voice against George’s “unwarranted meddling.”

      Mick/Mike’s was a more special case. You see, he suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder. On some days, the Mick personality was dominant and, after having had a bitter row with George, he would seek reassurances from his half-brother, Paddy; an ex-employee of Yookay Ltd., but who was now working successfully for himself. At other times, the Mike personality would pledge undying loyalty to George and the set up at Yookay Ltd., and not a cross word would be exchanged between him and his colleague.

      In such a way, the colleagues of Yookay Ltd. rubbed along, and the company itself limped on from financial quarter to financial quarter.

      Now, one evening, the four colleagues had gone to the Europa nightclub together. What George had seen in going there in the first place was rather a mystery. You will have already have gathered that George was not very much a team player or a social animal. His attitude at the nightclub confirmed all this. The music was too loud. Or it was not to his taste. The lights were too bright. The guests were performing ‘obscene’ movements as they gyrated on the dance floor. The drinks from the bar were some imported, fancy stuff – not like the warm beer he preferred in the Farage Arms pub back home. And the cost of entry! Goodness gracious! It was so exorbitant – and that for facilities he didn’t like one bit: he was minded to ask for a personal rebate.

      It was then that George announced, “We’re going home.”

      Now, it’s one thing to say that you don’t like a party and that you’re leaving. But, don’t you think it was a bit presumptuous of George to actually say “we” and including Dai, Jock and Mick/Mike in the equation and without making sure with them first? That wasn’t George’s way though. At work, as we have seen, he was known for throwing his weight about and getting his own way. In a similar fashion, he thought he could bully his colleagues into his ways of thinking outside Yookay Ltd.’s offices, too.

      “We’re going home?” Jock retorted scornfully, emphasising the “we.” “And who do you think you are telling us that “we” are the ones going home from this great nightclub?”

      “I saw you flirting with that dark-haired girl over there in the corner,” said George. “Positively unseemly. Not the conduct we’d expect from an employee of Yookay Ltd.”

      “You mean Frances,” Jock replied. He grinned. “Frances was an ex of mine and we lost touch when I started working for Yookay Ltd. We were very close. We even had an alliance to be married. I was getting re-acquainted.”

      The grin disappeared and was replaced by a grimace.

      “Until your ham-fisted approach broke up our relationship,” Jock added bitterly.

      “Why you ungrateful little creep! I’ve given you more than enough support at Yookay Ltd.! What more could you ask for?”

      George was shouting.

      “What more could I ask for?” Jock repeated. “Why, you could let me make up my own decisions on projects at work. You could stop looking down on me and telling me what to do all the time. And you’re not telling me that just because this Europa nightclub is not doing the things you want, that we have to leave.”

      Jock’s resentments over the years were boiling over.

      “In fact, George, I’ve had enough of you and your bullying over the years – I’m leaving you!” he shouted.

      “He’s right, you know,” mumbled Dai.

      But people rarely listened to him on account of his soft voice and his lack of self-confidence. It would have taken much more of an effort on his part to sound off in the same way as Jock had done.

      “Shut it!” George roared at Dai, in typical Eastenders fashion. “You told me before you wanted to leave. You’re in this with me! You know your future lies under my stewardship at Yookay Ltd. Think how stupid Jock would be throwing in his lot with this bunch of strangers, and an ex he hasn’t spoken to in years. He wouldn’t last a year with any of them – and away from us at Yookay Ltd.”

      Dai said nothing and looked down at his shoes.

      “You’re wrong, George,” Mick said softly. “My half-brother, Paddy has been coming to this Europa nightclub now for years. And he’s enjoyed the internationalism of it immensely. No more ructions with you at Yookay Ltd. He’s now free to do his own thing and make his own friends. He has a place in the world – he knows it and his friends know it. He’s a happy man. And I want to join him in that happiness.”

      “Another ("Tractor" - Ed)!” George bawled. “Such ingratitude! To be honest with you, when you were in your Mike phases, I tended to over-indulge you. And this is how you repay me! Well, good riddance! I can do without the lot of you! I’m going home – and to hell with this poxy nightclub. I never wanted to come here in the first place. Come on, Dai!”

      “See you,” chorused Jock and Mick, grinning at George.

      “We should have left you and Yookay Ltd. long ago. We’re going to stay and enjoy the party atmosphere here at the Europa,” Jock added defiantly. “Too bad you can’t stay!”

      George stormed out, muttering threats against Jock and Mick under his breath. Dai stood on the threshold, a confused look on his face. He was less sure of where his destiny lay.

    105. brewsed says:

      One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop.
      When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

      Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.

      Then a Unionist Member of Parliament came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money fromyou. I’m doing community service this week.’ The Unionist Member of Parliamentwas very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Unionis Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

      And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference betweenthe citizens of our country and the unionist politicians who mostly run it.

    106. Socrates MacSporran says:

      Did anyone else notice former Col. TRuthless sitting int he second row, behind Carless Jackass at FMQs today.

      She looked like the Heid Wummin in an Orange Lodge, but one who didn’t want to be there, her face was tripping her.

      Maybe that was her reaction to the verbal kicking Jackass was getting from the FM, a mixture of: “I could have done better” and: “I would not have asked that.”

      Eventually, serious EU negotiations will have to take place and they will go something like this..… (fades to brightly lit consulting room)

      Michel Barnier donned his white lab coat, set his headlamp firmly on his forehead, looked at the appointment dairy and groaned. ‘Better together, get on with it I suppose’, he thought and pressed the buzzer for the next patient.

      A strange figure appeared sporting a rain cloud, a beer belly and a butcher’s apron; possibly a European’s stereotypical image of a resident from the other side of the La Manche.

      “Ah! Monsieur le Rosbif, come in. No, don’t sit down. We will have your Brexit sorted out in no time, just bend over.”

      Snap! The rubber gloves went on. Monsieur le Rosbif looked around hopefully at a tin marked ‘KY’.

      “No, you wouldn’t want that. I got it off a Kirkaldy fishing boat with a Filipino crew. It’s probably chili paste.”

      The investigation commenced. After a bit of probing, Michel Barnier noted, “I think there is a stone causing an obstruction. Let me see… no, it’s a rock, a hairy rock. Barbary macaque my words, that will have to go. Just a moment.”

      Michel Barnier left the consulting room holding the offending item, muttered something in Spanish and returned empty handed.

      “Sorted. Now what else have we got in there… hmm… that looks nasty, all covered in orange bands. I wonder if the Taoiseach is around? What’s that? No, I haven’t got a cold. Just hold still for a moment. Right got that, though it was a border line case. I will tell the Taoiseach that with enough rain, over time the orange bands will fade to a dull green.”

      “Oui, un dernier regard. Ah! oui, an adhesion. It looks like a rare Hadrian’s adhesion. You don’t want one of those, much better without it. I will just get the snips out. They should still be warm after they were used on a vasectomy – made a vas deferens that did. No, you can’t pict and choose about this, you wanted the Brexit and that is what you will get. “

      “Mais oui, très bien, you are looking better already, almost back to the shape you were in during the 16th century. Go and lie down in a darkened room for a while, maybe all of winter. It will get dark as the lights go off given how so much of your electricity is imported from Scotland, France and the Netherlands, then come back for some more treatment.”

      “Yes, there will be more treatment. I am banking on it”.

    114. Tom says:

      A dung beetle walks into a bar and says is that stool taken?

    115. Effijy says:

      Traffic policeman sitting just off the motorway checks his watch and sees that his shift is almost over
      Just then a car flys pas at 90 miles per hour.

      He chases and stops the car and tells the driver that he do without working late and doing all the paperwork but it was his duty to do so but if he can give him a good reason for speeding that he hasn’t heard before, he can travel on without the ticket.

      The driver said sure, many years ago I married young and rushed into it.
      My wife turned out to be a nasty piece of work.
      She wouldn’t clean the house do the washing or cook and worst of all she messed around with other guys. Eventually she ran off with a policeman who worked in the traffic division.
      When I seen your car hiding up the slip road and when you turned on your lights and siren I thought
      You might be trying to bring her back to me.

      The cop finished work on time.

    116. CageyBee says:

      The Englishman responds, ‘I’d like to hear “God Save The Queen” just one more time to remind me of the old country, played by the London All Boys Choir. With Morris Dancers Dancing to the tune.’

      The Irishman replies, ‘I’d like to hear “Danny Boy” just one more time to remind me of the auld country, sung in the style of Daniel O’Donnell, with Riverdance dancers skipping gaily to the tune.’

      The Welshman answers, ‘I’d like to hear “Men Of Harlech” just one more time to remind me of the country, sung as if by the Treorchy Male Voice Choir.’

      Eugenics: Science’s Secret Scandal

      When they first trailed it a month back it was entitled, Eugenis: Britain’s Secret Scandal and had footage featuring Francis Galton and the English origins of the philosophy which underpinned the rize of Nazi Germany some decades later.

    124. robertknight says:

      Jim, a Scotsman, moves to Dublin for a new job and joins a golf club to try to make new friends. He asks the barman in the clubhouse if he thinks anyone might like to play a round with him.

      The barman nods to a guy at the end of the bar and says “ask Michael, he’ll play with you”. Jim and Michael agree to play the following morning, “I’ll meet you at 9, but I may be a half an hour late” says Michael. “No problem, see you then” says Jim.

      Michael arrives at 9 prompt and, noticing that Michael has a set of left-handed clubs, Jim decides to make things interesting. “€5 a hole?” says Jim. “Aye, why not” replies Michael.

      By the 18th, Jim is down by €150 and feeling decidedly hard done by. Back at the clubhouse, Jim is keen to win back some of his hard-earned and says to Michael “now I’ve played the course, do you fancy another round tomorrow?” “Why not”, says Michael, “I’ll see you at 9, but I may be a half an hour late”. “No probs” says Jim.

      Michael arrives at 9 sharp, and Jim notices Michael has a set of right-handed clubs. Bemused, Jim agrees to the same wager and, sure enough, is down €150 by the 18th.

      Curiosity gets the better of him in the clubhouse, and Jim asks about the clubs.

      “Sure” says Michael, “if I wake and see my wife is sleeping on her left side I play left-handed. If she sleeps on her right I play right-handed”.

      Jim thinks, and asks ” but what if your wife sleeps on her back?” “I might be a half an hour late” says Michael.

      As a DJ in the 90s, I did an 11 year old’s birthday party. He brought me a CD and asked me to play something off it.

      I found this track, which I have featured in “off-topic” in the past. The album was “Tom Wilson’s Tartan Techno” and the track was “Freedom” by QFX.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QFX_(band)

      What surprises me is that I’ve never seen QFX on stage at any of the rallies I’ve been at over the past 5 years or so. “Freedom” should have been/should be another of our indy anthems.

      Thor meets a beautiful young woman. Being Thor, things progress quickly and they make mad passionate lurve all night long. Just before dawn he goes to leave, ‘Who are you ?’ asks the woman. ‘I cannot tell you’ says Thor and leaves.

      Smitten, the next day finds her, they have passionate rumpy pumpy all night long. Dawn is about to break, once again she asks.’Tell me your name’. ‘I cannot’, he says and leaves. This happens a few times more. He leaves and thinks that’s it, but then decides to go back a few days later as he cannot get her out of his mind.

      He knocks on her door and stands before her in all his glory, holding his hammer. ‘I am Thor’ he says. She takes one look and punches him.

      ‘You’re thore’ she lisps ‘ I was pithing broken glath and couldn’t walk straight’. And shuts the door.

      It mentioned Karl Pearson but missed out his part in bringing the eugenics message to Germany. He was a student at Heidelberg and gave lectures in Germany. He was such a Germano-phile that he eventually adopted the German spelling of his English name – Carl – and became so fluent in German that he was offered a post in the German department of Cambridge University which he declined.

      He also refused the knighthood he was offered in, IFIRC, 1933.

      They also mentioned the German the possibly eugenics influenced deaths in SW Africa but forgot to mention the British concentration camps during the Boer war which killed many tens of thousands whites and coloureds, although they respected apartheid by having different camps for each.

      Boris Johnson has been saying words along the lines of ‘vote Labour and get a Scottish Independence referendum within a year’ I’m not sure who he’s speaking to? Maybe following up on Ruth’s dogwhistle to the Orangemen? Certainly his party in Scotland couldn’t lie straight in bed, they’ve been back and forward on Brexit etc like there’s no tomorrow.

      But he’s stoking ‘fear’ of this based on comments recently and in the past from both Corbyn and McDonnel. But now that Labour in Scotland places fourth, has SLAB any REAL influence over the party nationally?

      When SLAB could regularly return 50 MPs and the majority were safe seats with long term incumbents then they DID have a voice. There’s no such thing as a Labour safe seat now (in Scotland) and I’m thinking that this is definitely affecting their ability to persuade the leadership. I’m not JUST basing it on this either. Recently I heard Labour’s announcement from conference that they had a ‘new’ policy on prescription charges. Yes folks, after BITTERLY opposing the SNP’s successful (and moneysaving) policy to end charges on prescriptions for all patients and having done so for YEARS, they are now declaring it THEIR idea and launching it as part of their manifesto for the upcoming general election.

      THAT won’t make SLAB very happy, will it? But then, I’m guessing no one asked them…

      It costs as much to administrate (UK) Gov pension as the pay out.
      (UK) Gov OA Pensions should be £180+ a week. To cut out admin costs. The costs of admin are as bug as the payout. Admin based in the Mall Gov offices in London? UK Westminster Gov admin in London £2Billion++.

      Scotland’s tax revenues pays for all (UK) Gov. Pensions and welfare benefits. Pensions are so low there has to be top up and admin costs. Additional unemployment or sickness benefit, instead of pension. Or pension credits for those in low incomes.

      If the pension was £180+ a week. There would be more money for the elderly and less admin costs. Especially for elderly women who were denied their pension rights. Instead of being spend on admin and top up they who receive higher pensions as a right. It would save money.

      The (UK) Gov is spending more on top ups and benefits. More costly to administrate than paying a higher pension amount. Instead of direct, higher payment. The bad Gov administration in London is costing Scotland more. People in Scotland die on average younger so should receive higher pension amount in any case.

      If Scotland was Independent it could spend more on Gov pension for the elderly. This would be cost effective. A better diet and living conditions would keep people healthier. Less could be spent in healthcare. The elderly 20% of the population rely on 80% of the SNHS spending. It has been calculated as the human body deteriorates people get more sick.

      Spend less on illegal wars, financial fraud, tax evasion, Hinkley Point, HS2, Trident etc. A complete and utter waste of money. To spend more on pensions, education and SNHS and other essential services and economic development. A win, win.

      Vote SNP/SNP. Vote for Independence. Get another to vote as well. Vote for a better world. To make a difference.

      Westminster cowardly unionist lunatics have targeted on women and children to cut benefits. Austerity. ConDems voted in to protect NHS and education and protect the vulnerable. Cut them all. Cut NHS £4Billion, cut Education £6Billion a year from 2015 to 2020. They cut welfare £6Billion a year for six years. £18Billion. They are spending £Billions on Hinkley Point, HS2, Trident. Losing £Billions on tax evasion. The Tory slush fund. The reason for Brexit. Total corruption and waste.

He tells her, no no, she’s not going out but he’ll be turning off the heating when he’s away so she’ll need her coat to keep warm.

      All very music hall. Humour from a past era, perhaps.

      Is there truth in it? Certainly poverty means you have to watch the bawbees, and Scotland had much poverty. Still has, thanks to the Union. Have we, as a nation, a tendency to show fiscal responsibility, manage our money carefully? Not with Labour in charge, and we put Labour in charge a lot.

      We certainly aren’t mean of spirit. Our attitudes to refugees appear more enlightened than our neighbours. We are certainly more outward looking and egalitarian, less xenophobic.

      Rory no longer Tory. Got chucked out. Total opportunist. Now want to be Lord Mayor of London. Fantasist. There is no end to their troughing. Wasting public money. Putting up the public purse. Self seeking, greedy ignorant and arrogant.

      Note to Bob Mack. Good to see you contributed a tenner to the flags fundraiser. Sorry to see that it was 3 days ago and you are still second from the top of contributors.

      @ Tartanpigsy at 8.23 a.m. Does the shortfall on your Flags fundraiser just mean a delay in placing the order? Perhaps a whipround in Edinburgh tomorrow? Might Wings stall help?

      @ Dan @ 11.35am

      Hi Dan…thanks for that. It was lovely… but it is in the wild where they are endangered that is worrying…for various reasons..

      My hubby is a member of the Scottish Wildcat association and like me, he cares passionately about their survival.

      It is so sad.

      I am , like many on here, I’m sure, passionate about animal rights and despair that there are people who seem to have such disregard for animals and their rights to exist. I hate any form of cruelty towards animals…whether it be hunting, abuse or those who seem to see an animal as a lesser being.

      My brother, many many years back, used to paint posters for the organisation Hunt Saboteurs as he , like myself and my husband hates fox hunting….so imagine our anger at Jeremy Hunt stating in his leadership campaign bringing back a vote on Fox hunting…he truly is a Jeremy ‘Hunt’ is he not.

      We have a young fox that we feed in our back garden…it is so timid and scrawny looking that we just felt we had to feed it to help it survive..especially with winter coming.

      I always think it is justified to measure a person’s worth through how they treat animals…and those who mistreat them, are in my opinion, very much the lowest of the low as a human being.

      Have a nice day Dan.

      Hi wullie..what area do you stay in ?

      You are very very lucky to see them as they renowned for being very elusive.. are they ‘pure’ wildcats ?

      My understanding and the info my husband gets from Scottish Wildcat association is that they are in decline …..through habitat loss, hunting and hybridization with feral and domestic cats.

      Anyway have a nice day

      Jings, from the Court of Session, O’Neill as related by Michael Gray:

      Breaking: UK Government tell Scottish Court that Prime Minister Boris Johnson WILL send the extension letter to delay Brexit as required by Benn Act. Aidan O’Neill QC reads out bombshell legal statement in court, until now kept secret.

      +

      O’Neill: UK Government are telling this court one thing & the UK Union Parliament another – claiming UK will leave EU on the 31 of October come what may. New legal position given to petitioners just last night.

      BJ is ripping his own arse another one.

      @HYUFD
      You’re a complete and utter liar, here’s what it says:

      CON: 36.2% (+10.3)
      SNP: 35.0% (+0.9)

      That is NOT a swing from Con to SNP.

    201. callmedave says:

      @dadsarmy

      Your were too kind there really. 🙂

    202. HYUFD says:

      Dads army Yes it is, the SNP vote may be up fractionally but the Tory vote is up more.

      Same as the 2017 general election saw a swing from the Tories to Labour even though the Tory voteshare was up as Labour’s voteshare was up more

    203. dadsarmy says:

      @HYUFD
      It was an Independent before you dishonest twat. You take after your leader Boris Johnson, see this and look in the mirror:

      https://twitter.com/GrayInGlasgow/status/1180082635852439552

      Or was there something about “No other Ind(s) (-18.3) as prev.” you were too thick to understand?

      Well, which one is it, are you monumentally thick or monumentally dishonest?

    204. dadsarmy says:

      @callmedave
      Well, the sun is shining 🙂

      But not on HYFUD or BJ!

    205. Brian Doonthetoon says:

      HYFUD.

      Here is ALL the info from your link…

      Bridge of Don (Aberdeen) first preferences:
      CON: 36.2% (+10.3)
      SNP: 35.0% (+0.9)
      LDEM: 18.1% (+8.8)
      LAB: 5.9% (-5.2)
      GRN: 2.7% (+2.7)
      UKIP: 1.1% (+1.1)
      IND: 0.8% (-0.1)
      RED: 0.2% (+0.2)
      No other Ind(s) (-18.3) as prev.

      Looks like the swings were from Independents and Labour to every other party.

      The Tories held their seat and the SNP held theirs.

      No need to lie…

    206. HYUFD says:

      Dads Army So clearly most of those Independent voters went Tory or LD NOT SNP this time

      If you’re going to comment here at least look up how a swing works rather than dribble all over your keyboard.

      You seem to be admitting to being monumentally thick.

    209. callmedave says:

      Hmmm! Scottish court case is not news on big auntie BBC news.

      Funny old Scottish world when Rory the Tory is big news. 🙂

      Boris will sign the letter says his QC in court (for those not reading the proceedings on twitter).

    210. HYUFD says:

      Dads Army A swing works on the basis of movement between the main parties contesting a seat, if last night’s SNP to Tory swing in Aberdeen were repeated across Scotland the Tories would not lose any seats to the SNP and could even gain a few seats from the Nationalists

    211. dadsarmy says:

      @HYUFD
      You’re gibbering. Pull yourself together man!

    212. callmedave says:

      Oh Wait! Not true that:

      Boris will sign the letter says his QC in court (for those not reading the proceedings on twitter).

      Boris will SEND the letter says his QC in court

    213. Terry callachan says:

      HYUFD. 12.56..

      The previous independents were not really independents they were unionists masquerading as independent to try and trick “ don’t knows” because they feared a big SNP rise in votes.

      There was no big increase in SNP votes so the masquerading independents have disappeared and that will happen elsewhere too in future elections where the unionist masquerading as an independent trick was used.

      All that has happened is that there has been the continuing and never ending
      slight increase in SNP votes
      crash in Labour votes
      And the tactical voting of unionist voters moving from and to whoever they think will gather the most unionist votes away from the SNP

      The Tory and Lib Dem’s gained 19.1% between them

      The ghost unionists masquerading as independents were previously 18.3% but are now 0.1% so their voters have simply moved back to Tory and Lib Dem
      No change really

      One has to laugh at the USA’s proposal to put a 25% levy on Scotch Whisky.

      Seems that our erstwhile Conservative MP and ex Secretary of State for Scotland told the Commons last night that the tax could cost 3,000 jobs in the Scotch Whisky industry.

      Tee hee hee, all these distilling, bottling, labelling, transportation jobs down the Swannee whilst Boris tells us Brexit is good and this the USA will give us a good deal. Thank fuck we all voted Tory, and not to stay in the EU.

      As for the workers who may lose their jobs, welcome to the hostile environment of the social security systems and the banks with whom many will have loans and mortgages.

      Still No, the dimwit turkeys who voted for an early Christmas in 2014.

      Just saying like!

    217. Willie says:

      Going in to my local Morrison supermarket the other day I had to marvel at the Union Jack offensive where every conceivable vegetable, piece of beef, piece of pork, piece of lamb or piece of chicken is being blootered with Union Jack branding.

      Out with the Saltire and Scottish produce and in with the Union Jack.

      Indeed, in their enthusiasm to remove the Saltire Morrison’s are actually branding Scottish beef with a Union Jack. This I believe is illegal as is the non printing of rearing, slaughter and cutting code information on labels.

      The farmers who produce meat, fruit and vegetables will be laughing a bundle at that as Scotland the Brand gets trashed. Ah well, it’s their livelihoods and businesses under threat – and if it’s a no deal, then export to Europe may be problematic.

      But then again, dimwits and turkeys voted for this in the 2014 referendum.

      Ho, Ho, Ho still no chaps.

    218. Willie says:

      Well here’s a jingo if going to the supermarket reminds you of a last night at the proms.

      “IF IT’S GOT A JACK THEN PUT IT BACK “

      Easy enough to remember. Make it your mantra. Support Scottish jobs and Scotland the Brand.
