    Falling off the moral highground
  1. IIRC he was fairly unanimously regarded as the best man for the job. Surely any candidate should have to have a footballing background, whether hibee, jambo, fenian or hun. And, when I read that article I come to a slightly different conclusion than yourself, he was apparently mis-quoted originally. Fill me in, wiki only mentions Cadete and a Scottish Cup final.
  2. I agree on both counts. No-one wants to lose one of their best players but how can you refuse that much money (God bless champions league hype ). Apparently Fulham were going to give us £2m for Cousin too! Question is: what are we going to spend it on (apart from Christian Dailly)? A throne at Ibrox for Super Ally maybe
  3. I got called it now and again as a child (again, despite being born in the Gilbert Bain) and it was never in a positive light. So, while the general consensus seems to be that it is OK in context, I'd argue that its OK in any context (sometimes offense should be both given and taken) but if you want to use it without seeming xenophobic, you might want to use it in a good way now and again. .... and always in the proper tongue, none of this Southmoother stuff
  4. Well, I'm no Barry Rumsey Smith, but if this goes ahead I foresee a whole new black market is back-street surgery For serious offenders maybe, but if they are that much of a risk to the public should they be allowed out in the first place?
  5. Yes, he certainly knows how to get people fired up. In this instance for "change", whether voters actually know what he wants to change, I'm not sure. Don't get me wrong I like him a lot, I think he will do America a lot of good, even if the only thing him winning does is get them beyond the race debate. The vast majority of focus in on the democrats, is it just taken for granted that the republicans are on their way out?

    It must've been US midnight they cut it off, I get the same message here. Interestingly the proxy trick could also be used to get to other services which are strictly limited by country e.g. the showing of football games
  7. Just to clarify (and I appreciate I have diverged myself) she was prosecuted for the "information", I assume this doesn't include the poems, only the documents (al-Qaeda Manual, Terrorist’s Handbook, Mujahidin Poisons Handbook, a manual for a Dragunov sniper rifle, a firearms and RPG handbook and a document entitled “How to Win Hand-to-Hand Fighting). You could surely apply your own thought police logic to people downloading child porn
  8. ^^ Indeed. Resirecting some Inglish spelling lessons might be a good idea

  10. Rumour has it she was working for the CIA, and I'm sure I saw a star of David in one picture Sudans top clerics eh? "Them and Us" thinking can apply to, well, them, as well as us.... To be honest I think this "cultural misunderstanding" thing is a bit dubious too. It may be a misunderstanding in that she should never have gone to a place with those laws in the first place, but it also suggests that such a culture is perfectly OK if you understand it, that 40 lashes would be suitable punishment for someone that did know the laws, or that the laws themselves are OK. Lets be clear, this is but a mere drop in the ocean of sharia-oriented barbarity that happens in far too many countries around the world all the time. Once upon a time this country had principals, we shouldn't be taking this b***shucks, especially from officials, it should be made clear to them just how twisted and backward there country is. According to yesterdays Times article she was being refused access to British officials, and, although it wasn't completely clear, it was reported that she had had limited food, if any, after 48 hours in custody. We really should make more of an effort to understand... Verrrry interesting that the Brotherhood are stirring things up Pleepsie
  11. ^^^ Aitken is a good shout, but has he ever actually been (the) manager? We're not exactly spoilt for choice, assuming we get someone half decent, will they be willing to stay with us for 3 years? Levein would be good, maybe Jeffries. If Billy Davies get it I'm moving to Wales!
  12. This is quite interesting too (half an hours worth): http://doughty.gdbtv.com/player.php?h=05d4c71ddc2f70ec3093e94e9777c83f Tryl himself is on it and talks a lot of sense. They get onto the "incite" laws, which I think is at the centre of it. I'd phrase the law "incitement to illegal violence". I'm no lawyer but I think libel laws would cover everything else I'm concerned about.
  13. Slag, clearly she should have been stoned to death Its all part of maintaining the highest of moral standards of course: http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20071116/wl_mideast_afp/britaincourtsaudidiplomacy
  14. I know Shakespeare only marginally better than I know Cannibal Corpse, so I couldn't tell you if anti-semitism is promoted in it in the same way as infidel murder is promoted by these lyrics. Surely you are not saying anti-semitism is OK, so I assume there is some difference. The gangster rap comparison was, I think, about the best so far.
