The political reaction to the UK Supreme Court's big judgment this week will be interesting.

Re: Will the EU succeed or fail?

. The globalist of all economic globalists has now settled nicely smack dab in the Central Bank of the EU. Christine Lagarde used to run the IMF. Today she has been tapped to run the ECB beginning November 1. The EU Parliament really had no choice in the matter. Their vote is to endorse the choice ...

Re: It was never about Europe. Brexit is Britain’s reckoning with itself

The Labour government here even swung employment laws more in favour of people working in this industry. It doesn't seem to have put Amazon off. Niche market so better milk it. There can't be too many more medieval-themed fantasy drama's after the (inevitable) film adaptation of GoT, no? Jacinda ma...

Re: ceiling fan shop

That's the electric shop, they have a small selection, but also have parts for repair, like pull chain switches. When I checked back when, think the prices were between 4k - 6k but they did have the brand I was looking for, but no match. Wanted something I could just swap out. Checked their selecti...

Re: school bully(ies) in Udon

A couple of years back, my son mentioned that a few kids would 'beat up' on other kids for their daily allowances. I stressed that if they start picking on him, he goes to the teacher first and tell me and Mrs tam so we can follow up. Beyond any obvious cuts or bruises, the latter most likely inflic...

Re: school bully(ies) in Udon

Not an Udon school, but my friend's daughter who has learning difficulties was exposed to cyber bullying which wasn't discovered until her behavioral changes at home became far more than just teenage angst. The evidence tearfully produced on her FB account showed that a school teacher was also compl...

Re: Revoke Article 50 petition

Watched the eloquent and teleprompter-free speech by Jo Swinson given to her newly emboldened 'orange order' at their bash by the seaside yesterday. Certainly an impressive, consistent delivery as she said that in the (highly unlikely) event that the Lib Dems form the next government, rescinding Art...

Whilst league leaders Buckie Thistle kept a clean sheet, Fort William only let them find the back of their home net 4 times. Still "aff th' bottom' with 3 teams below them. Same scoreline for Peterhead at Raith unfortunately but they're up against Clyde at Balmoor next Saturday where a home win may ...
