    Can't argue with that, that's thirty odd percentage of Scotland, two million think they can rule sixty five million of the U.K., sober up you lot, it's not what the majority want..

    Nichola and Theresa probably been on the phone today, boo-hoo what went wrong? Probably ended up in a shouting match, all your fault. No, it was yours! Europeans probably smirking away now, England, Scotland and Wales led by a bunch of females.  Anyway the electorate will probably sort that in time but more pressing is the Brexit thing. Only one person can negotiate this in my opinion. Yep, Mr Nigel Farage.

    Strangely I agree that Garage would do a job. None of this no deal better than bad deal shite. Keep UK in customs union at very least if not in common market as well.. Can't see any logic in putting barriers in front of businesses

    Governments put enough barriers up without physical ones, although to be fair there are worse out there than UK. Spain springs to mind...........

    It was the pro Union parties that made the indy referendum an issue. SNP fought campaign on their record in government. Imo. All pro union parties now back peddaling like mad to try for soft Brexit , which is something SNP called for originally.

    Basically the unionists are saying that although the majority of people voted SNP they didn't know that the SNP were in favour of independence, what a load of tossers as is anyone else who agrees with them, hmmm

    Totally crazy innit, any other business that can't keep their head above water just goes to the wall...

    Mate of mine has two pet hates, students and farmers, were in this pub one night, I already know from speaking to the barmaid previously she's a student and her fathers a farmer,,, conversation goes as follows:-

    Me - Not seen you for a few weeks thought you'd left.

    Barmaid - No it's uni end of term I've been down my dads farm for a couple of weeks holiday. (My mates ears prick up)

    Mate - So your dads a farmer, what type of farm ?

    Barmaid - Dairy farm.

    Mate - How's business ?

    Barmaid - Not good with all these cuts in price for milk and rising cost he's really struggling.

    Mate - Your dad got a car ?

    Barmaid - Yes.
     
    Mate - What type ?

    Barmaid - Range Rover.

    Mate - What model ?

    Barmaid - Vogue.

    Mate - So your saying your dads skint yet he's driving around in a top of the range Range Rover, feckin typical farmer subsidised to the hilt but pleading poverty...

    The two of them had a massif argument screaming and shouting at each other almost climbing over the bar to get at each other, landlady had to get involved to split them up, I thought we're gonna be barred here, but we weren't, that happened a few weeks later when he fell out with the landlady...
