Re: Now the Tories Should be worried...

What is your evidence that they're not registered to vote. 'None ' is what I'm thinking. The reality is that Labour has had a 4 point swing since Brands interview with Miliband on Sunday. Go figure...

Re: The United Kingdom now a pointless entity?

It's well known that the entire West coast of Scotland from Skye south has never been test drilled thoroughly in preference to the operational efficacy of Trident nuclear deterrent submarine traffic. Small test drillings off the coast of Greenock in the Clyde estuary in 80'sv were quickly suppressed...

Re: The United Kingdom now a pointless entity?

I blame Greggs Steak Bakes! They are incendiary food products. You can show all the oil production graphs you want, the reality is Scotland still has a tremendous resource still in the ground and an estimated 150-200% more oil to be exploited. If this were not the case, the rUK would have cut the ap...

Re: WHO report: 74% of men & 64% women in UK overweight by

If you were citing the original WHO paper rather than a hack precis of it in the Guardian I would take your point seriously. As it is it's just frivolous to discuss anything, given the reference document you cite. I'm not really interested in frivolous, unreferenced 'opinion'. Which serves no one, l...

Re: The United Kingdom now a pointless entity?

Scotland is clearly a different political and social animal to the rest if the UK. I've lived in three out of the four countries in the united kingdom, and I must say I've never experienced a more friendly and humane culture and society than I have north of the border. I can see why they absolutely ...

Re: WHO report: 74% of men & 64% women in UK overweight by

Please keep on topic. Referring to previous threads from the past advances this argument no further. That's how forums are supposed to work. I'm not reiterating previous arguments for your benefit. I really don't think any of your points are worthy of addressing. You're simply trying to rehash a pre...

Re: WHO report: 74% of men & 64% women in UK overweight by

Personally I think it way past time the state DID intervene in personal choices. Smoking in public ect, it's not exactly unprecedented action. If we really want a free health service at the point of need, then it's high time we started participating in our own health management. The NHS is not a fre...

Re: WHO report: 74% of men & 64% women in UK overweight by

There are several 'Healthy Living' cycling and walking schemes in my area. Unfortunately they are piecemeal and usually poorly funded, attracting less than a dozen or so participants. It is heartening however to see many of my ex patients joining schemes like these. Clearly a lot more money has to b...

Re: The United Kingdom now a pointless entity?

One only has to look at the BBCs coloured map to see that politics is regional. As you move away from the South in any direction things become more socialist. Socialists want the state to do more and private enterprise to do less. Perhaps it would be a good idea to let Scotland do an experiment whe...

Keith. I don't think any of your points are worthy of a response. Please stay on topic with the OP. That is after all the way forums work.
You're not advancing the subject one bit.

Play the ball, not the man.

Re: The United Kingdom now a pointless entity?

That article was written without mention of Wales or NI. Because Scotland is roaring at the moment, the journalist has temporarily noticed its existence, but still cant manage to grasp that the rest of the UK is more than England. the article is written by Irvine Welsh, Scottish author (Trainspotti...

Re: WHO report: 74% of men & 64% women in UK overweight by

It also assumes a homogeneous, continuous nature of human activity. There may still be a fraction of the population who have personal pride and responsibility and will take the necessary action to remain fit and healthy despite external influences. So the fraction of people getting to overweight st...
