  1. Out of interest, It is probably not so well known the Councillor for South Mainland has another job which appears to conflict with being a councillor. When not councilling (or whatever) he is a private investigator. it seems to me he cannot in all honesty claim to be looking after the interests of the people of South Mainland while at the same time gathering evidence against them.
  2. It seems we have a situation bordering the semi-pacifist nonsense mentioned earlier Jeremy Corbyn MP leader of the Labour Party and Opposition has made it clear he's against the UN resolution to take the war with I.S. to into their own camp in Syria or elsewhere. His answer to the problem is talks, discussions and blocking/freezing terrorists assets and funding, preventing the selling and buying of terrorist oil etc. (Money grabbing rears its ugly head again) Question time..... How long would it take to implement his master plan? How does he intend to stop foreign countries buying much needed
  3. Going to jump on my soap box again. The problem with the human race is the people. I still maintain the view 16-17 year olds are at an impressionable age and likely to have little or no knowledge or experience of politics. They need time to adjust to adulthood, work and girls before they venture into politics. No prizes for guessing which way a vote would swing if a politician promised school leavers a big weekly dole hand out for 5 years or until they found work. Couldn't happen? How about the financial crash? Job cuts, cuts in services etc. With the same breath they announce a £30Bn railway
  4. rgibson I'm not knocking 16 year olds, and yes, they deserve every opportunity to get ahead. Being straight out of school a 16 year old will generally lack the political savvy required to make informed decisions on the nations future. They need time to adjust to a world other than the confines of home and school. As far marriage and a family are concerned, nothing wrong with that. They are shaping their own personal future not the future of others. Let's face it, the older generation are guilty of many blunders and misdemeanours by those who sit behind big shiny desks not knowing what it's li
  5. I see the government are pushing to allow 16 and 17 to vote in a national referendum. I dispair! No disrespect to the youth of today, but I see this as a half cocked attempt at something to crow about and gain election votes when the time comes. 16/17 year olds are either still at school or have just left with very little or no experience of everyday politics. Many will have little more than a head full of iPads and pop music. How I wish politicians would use their brains for once.
  6. Scaler is fixed up for the next 3 days but still looking for somewhere a little more permanent.
  7. I should have added, I very nearly offered to pay Islesburgh a couple of weeks rent for you, pay back when you can but I would first.need to know something about your circumstances.
  8. The problem is you're not saying much and it makes people wary. Nobody knows who you are, where you come from, where you live, where you work and why you have nowhere to sleep. Those are questions that should be answered, I looked at your Shetlink profile and there's nothing except you joined Shetlink less than 48 hours ago. It's hardly surprising there are no takers. If you fill in all the gaps you may get a better response.
  9. The council have a legal obligation to house the homeless have they not? .
  10. Should Alistair Carmichael resign? The answer is NO. I'll not blow a fanfare for him or any other politician except to say with Alistair ther's no complaints. His only 'crime' is being a politian in a world where none can answer a straight question or more offten than not, circumnavigates the truth. An extreme example is Hillary Clinton. OK, so she's not UK. Politics. Neverteless. in front of the whole world she claimed being "Very frightened" when visiting Bosnia. "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we j
  11. I orginally intended to wear my grandfathers medals on the right side of my blazer at Remembrance Day Parades but now find the practice is frowned upon. No matter. I would still like to get replacements to complete a display of three generations of medals. The medal record card I got from National Archives was not my grandfather as first though. Some new info has tunrned up so there's hope yet
  12. Researching and replacing my grandfathers lost army medals. The medals are engraved with name, rank, number and unit around the rim and need to make sure I have the right details before ordering replacements. I have his medal record card. All I need now is his military/enlistment record which should be on "Ancestry" website. This is a one off search and not happy about handing over debit card numbers not knowing if they have what I want, or paying for something that's not there. They have a 14-day free search offer but still require a card number. Has anyone had any experience with Ancestry? H
  13. My two roubles worth. School children are tomorrows people. Set them off on the wrong foot and it could have detremental effects on being the fine upstanding adults we would wish. Stage one: play hooky from school because it's too much of a chore travelling many miles every day and the same wearing journey home at night. Youngsters being farmed out to boarding schools or hostels deprives them of family life and could have psychological consequences. Not funny if one feels lonely or abandoned by parents. SIC have a legal obligation to provide schools and educate children. They also have a moral
  14. It was more than my police job was worth to fiddle car tax. Blatent offences are one thing. Two fines for one oversight, one of which was impossible to comply with is grossly unfair in my book. Now they are likely to steal your car, sell it for scrap and keep the proceeds. That's likely to cause a lot of unrest if a motorist is fined then loses his £5,000 car, and the next guy loses his £500 banger for the same offence. Where's the justice?
  15. Here's a link to one of my efforts on YouTube. I found it quite difficult to think of everything and do it all myself. Oh well! I tried!
