In which case, why make a joke based on a stereotype?

And the reason I didn't get it is because there are a lot of people who do act like that for real. I didn't say they all did, just that enough...

My apologies if you were being ironic. It's often hard to tell with the victim complex held by many of the SNP fanatics, which they combine very impressively with thinking haven't noticed Scotland...

Seriously? Even if Scotland was independent, do you think that being leader of a small country gives you as much power as being leader of a large country?

Why make this about women?

It's actually just over 5 million, almost identical to Yorkshire.:)

How about picking a time zone that means that midday coincides with 12 noon? Like we did when GMT was invented?

Anyone who prefers BST could lobby to start work earlier, like they do on most of the...

Having a Tory Government, when they are unpopular in Scotland, was a huge part of the campaign.

If there is to be a Labour government, they won't want them to be successful. If they do anything...

That's only because Labour have ruled it out. Before then, the SNP were saying how Labour couldn't be trusted, and they didn't want to be in any kind of alliance with them. Now they have the...

The SNP's ultimate goal is independence, so while they say they hate the Tories for being Tories, they actually like that most Scots don't like them, so are happy for them to succeed in Westminster. ...

The HoC vote on the speaker was awful, and will result in a lot of in-fighting and a lack of cohesion, but in wider PR terms, they were lucky to get away with it when so much else was dominating the...

I've absolutely no idea what happened that night, but it's obvious there isn't sufficient evidence to convict Knox, so it's about time this whole thing was dropped, and Meredith's family should be...

It also means that we'd never have the midday sun at midday. Pushing the clocks back means people want to get up later and go to bed later.



This would be a much better solution. In most of...

If you don't believe in paying tax twice, then VAT isn't your friend.

Anyway, the person who paid income tax is not paying tax twice. The person who didn't earn it, but inherits it will pay tax on...

It's not people who leave "nothing" that don't have the tax. It's people who leave less than 150,000 (or more) that pay it. That's really rather a lot.

I'm not sure how being given large sums of...
