  • Commented on The referendum question
    The issue is your tone of comments, that's what. Obviously free blog up to the owners limits of ability to put up with us etc, but there's a commonality between silly and badly toned and worded comments that transcends any...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    I dunno, it depends on which philosophy of revolution you prefer. The question of whether to go the parliamentary route or marshal your forces for a proper overthrow of the status quo has divided political groups on the left for...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    Look Greg, there you go again. I've never seen or heard of any evidence, can't even find any on the net, that the SNP got the idea of named guardians for children from Calvin and his Geneva experiment. You're just...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    Shit, I didn't remember it started dropping that long ago. I recall Euawan Mearns form the oil drum, he seemed to know what he was doing. But then that's one of the reasons I'm more of a no person, because...
  • Commented on Who let the dogs out
    It's convergent evolution, and yes the moves in the video are correct according to the manuals, or at least within the envelope of usefulness of the different interpretations people have of the manuals, which rather mirrors the modern plethora of...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    The Torygraph has an axe to grind, which does not mean they might sometimes publish an accurate opinion piece, but that one certainly doesn't. It also wasn't about economic issues, so bringing in the Deutsche bank (Hey, aren't they pally...
  • Commented on Who let the dogs out
    Dirk reminds me - the oldest martial arts manual in the world is i.33, late 13th century, European, shows a style of sword and buckler fighting, which is rather stylised but fairly effective. The aim is to bind or otherwise...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    THat Torygraph article is atrocious; no awareness of how Scotland today is a bit different from the late 19th/ early 20th century; no mention of all the anti-sectarian work done in the last decade or two which has borne a...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    Greg, your anti-SNP grandstanding is getting very tiresome. Have you thought of writing for the daily mail? As an antidote to Greg's bilge, I suggest the following: http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/09/08/labour-pains-labour-of-love/...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    The sort of oddness of thinking of right wingers can be seen on comments threads about Ferguson - one article which was about the hiring of ex-special forces protection officers by some media folk had comments from people who thought...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    Actually I don't have a problem speaking ill of the dead; a well known anti-science climate change denialist died earlier this year in Scotland and I have no problem pointing out that he was an idiot in many ways. In...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    Not quite. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/defence/9577167/One-in-ten-members-of-Armed-Forces-was-born-abroad.html This 2012 Telegraph article says: " Troops born overseas now account for a record 12 per cent of the total 101,290 strength, new figures show. Recruits from some African nations could form battalions all by themselves. However...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    You're being a bit nasty about a dead person, and basically appear to have swallowed the fox media version of events and the cover up afterwards, hook line and sinker. Suffice to say that the store owner didn't report the...
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    You don't have to read all of it. I'll likely stop reading it now or very shortly, there's only so much descent into horror and despair that I can take....
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    Bought in a dodgy deal indeed. And insisting on calling them the Elgin marbles is, in these post-imperialist times, rather odd. The SNP are not worse than Plaid Cymru in terms of petty small mindedness, rather they are victims of...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    Knowing CHarlie, it would probably be a dystopian novel. Meanwhile, in real life, most Scots couldn't think of anything worse, since there's a lack of things in common and we can see how your politics works and the rise of...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    As I might just have pointed out once or twice on this thread already, there's no legitimate descendant from Bruce, and I've not come across much about the fates of the offpsring of his daughters, it turns out he had...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    Stories that I've not come across, despite my wide reading in Scottish history. So you have my permission to ignore them ;)...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    Not at all, it is a human mix of rational thought and related emotional concerns, not unthinking at all. Thatcher was fairly popular, relatively, but the ancestors of the lib-dems helped ensure she won a majority rather than labour. THings...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    The threat isnt the Tory right, given that the Tories are currently enacting policies beloved by the right wing. THe threat is moving the overton window by the medias unthinking adoration of Farage and the effec tof Ukip and little...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    I think Charlie is correct, new labour is more to the right than the Tories in the post war settlement. For instance, education, Blair et al pushed dodgy junk called "Academies" which meant a millionaire could give some money to...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    I am not a constitutional lawyer, but one of the benefits of a not very well written down constitution is that, since the Kingship is separate from the parliament in many ways, it would be entirely possible to keep Queen...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    I've been saying for years it was a score draw - our King went south to boss them, they bribed our parliament to throw the towel in....
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    No chance at all, it's in the laughably ludicrous level. There might be one or two random drunken attacks on english sounding people, as happened after the film braveheart came out, but there is no chance of any organised violence....
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    On immigration - if all the other countries in the world were as well off as us and more equal in wealth distribution, I'm pretty sure that most immigrants wouldn't feel the need to come to the UK. The capitalists...
  • Commented on Vacation
    AS I posted in the other thread: 59: I hope you have a good time seeing it. It isn't so long before people will get antsy about it sinking beneath the rising waters due to AGW. Hiassen is worth reading,...
  • Commented on Interstitial note
    That is the one I meant, and it's already been brought up near the top of the thread....
  • Commented on The prospects of the Space and Freedom Party reconsidered in light of the crisis of 21st century capitalism
    WE have control of our population growth, that's a solved problem. All the others you list though, they're still live....
  • Commented on Interstitial note
    OOps, someone else mentioned it first....
  • Commented on Interstitial note
    See also the last Lensman book, "CHildren of the Lens", which uses planets from other planes of existence or whatever....
