Re: Should we stay or should we go now?

It would be a good thing! Put your money where your mouth is. Just when are they going to realise that a democratic vote took place? Happy there are those who display magnanimity and accept the result. But the aftermath stamping of feet and thrashing about in the sweet aisle by quite a few because t...

Re: The Angry Thread...

Edinburgh's new 20mph Zones. Not residential streets, but places like Leith Walk, Ferry Road and the Meadows. Before anyone points out the obvious - anyone involved in a collision at 20mph stands a better chance of less serious injury than at 30mph, I agree. What I don't agree with is the blatant d...

I disagree, most of the whingeing I hear are from those who haven't and will not accept the result To be fair, though, that's not what you posted, though, is it......"bile & vitriol" is different to "whinging". There are plenty of people who voted to leave who are also whing...

Re: Should we stay or should we go now?

Most of the bile & vitriol I've read & heard has been coming from people who voted 'Leave', not those who voted 'Remain' ( maybe those on here who continue to use puerile terms such as 'Remainiacs' should desist, for starters ) Your average 'Remain' voter accepted the result of the referend...

Re: DAB Radio Reception

Overlooking the fact that the signal from dab multiplexes are a square signal hence the burbling when reception is poor. Also it depends on the active antenna stuck to your screen (how much it amplifies the signal) and the multiplex power output of said signal. I've noticed that absolute80's has bee...

Re: Adverts what do you like and dislike?

There are a few rubbish adverts out there and one or two funny ones. The most annoying has to be money supermarket, funny ones were the Gaz and Lecky ads (Ballroom Blitz soundtrack got a thumbs up!). Nothing will beat the Irn Bru ad from the 80's parodying the American films for hilarity and genius!...
