Re: Early Day Motion on Humanist marriages

Has it really been ten years??? Yup :smile: And Scotland hasn't descended into anarchy because we Humanists can legally marry couples in love, and now do civil partnerships too. from the BHA press release: However, despite the overwhelming popularity of humanist marriages in Scotland, they are not ...

Re: Talk to Yourself

Particularly for Dave B, I read this today:

"I wish I had the wisdom of a 90yr old, the body of a 20yr old and the energy of a toddler." :D

Re: Solstice

Happy Solstice good folk :D

I saw pics of Stonehenge this morning and most of the folk had their phones in the air. I thought that so sad, missing out on the wonder of the moment.

Re: Things you thought you'd be good at

Thundril, I'm so glad you enjoyed your 10 skydives, despite discovering it's not your thing. Decades ago I wanted to learn to windsurf. I can swim and sail so thought I was more than half-way there. As I attended lessons at Portobello (Edinburgh's beach) I even invested in a wet suit. Sadly, many ex...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

Quite right you deserve another vote Alan. (Shetland actually voted SNP, it was the Orcadian vote that squeezed him in.) He should pay back the £1.whatever-it-was million on the investigation he set up when he knew full well he planted the story too :angry: Is there enough volunteer work on Orkney t...

Re: Our very own countdown thread!

925 097 The wedding was fabulous thank you jaywhat. The rain held off, the sun came out and with it lovely dappled light through the tree. As soon as the bride returned to the car it chucked it down. One wag suggested that god was kind to them... cueing my polite smile. And the post-wedding large gi...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

(typing this, rather crossly, before going out and crossposting. Sorry) NHS England is being privatised because of Tory dogma, which makes the actions of the last 3 Labour government rather strange... Nick! Please change the record! I haven't voted Labour since I was stupid enough to think Blair mig...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

But where outcomes can be improved, and costs lowered, why are you all so hell-bent on preventing such improvements? :shrug: Sigh. Because no evidence has been presented showing outcomes can be improved and costs lowered by involving the private sector. NHS England is being privatised because of To...

I've just realised why you have such difficulty with this, Nick. The NHS is not an industry. It's a free service to all at the point of need.

Right! Sleeves rolled up! At the first whoops of smug triumphalist crowing from that bunch of shiny-faced arrogant snides, there will be rage.
