She has not arrived yet but will hit soon with 200 KM per hr winds. Will probably make our Dorris look like a breeze!
EDIT. Just been reading it up on Google. A massive drop in air pressure resulting in rising sea levels, wind speeds predicted at 240 Km plus per hour. Torrential rain. Thousands abandoning their homes in search of higher ground.
Driving N or S on the M6, it is chocker block with foreign lorries. These vehicles pay no road tax and buy the bulk if not all there fuel on the continent and so pay little tax whilst damaging our road surfaces which require constant maintenance and repair.
Should Scotland leave the union and hope to trade with Europe are they expecting to transport all there exports and imports via our major sea ports and railways free of charge ? I don't think so.
This is only one of many practical problems that I feel that a split is most unlikely. She can talk the talk but the practical details will make it impossible to achieve.
In my opinion I think she is just trying to make the Brexit negotiations more complex and difficult.
I hope she has shot herself in the foot and becomes a spent force.
Other than people who get paid cash in hand for tax dodging reasons or those who have had previous financial problems and can't get a debit card etc I can't understand why anyone would want to trek to the ticket office and queue up to renew. Especially now we have season cards rather than paper books so there's no physical product to buy and your existing card just gets renewed for another season.
Not everyone in the world is on the internet especially the over 50s,they still live in the real world not the made up world.
Thank you for your concearn .Over 50 ? Give us some respect. People over 50 invented computers and the internet. I managed with little difficulty to buy my tickets on line some time ago
Congratulations to to all the Stokies who promptly shouted down the idiots who were on here a couple of days ago.
If you would like to join us and experience something which may be quite unknown to you, but which is a part of our culture may we suggest you watch a great sporting occasion on Saturday (10/03) at 1600 GMT. England v Scotland, Rugby Union.
Spread it on on social media and let us know what you think. If you don't understand the rules, don't worry many people over here don't either.
Stokies please comment . I would like to welcome our new friends from Egypt.
Given that we abolished slavery well before the Americans this isn't our guilt trip.
Totally agree. We abolished Slavery some 100 years or more than the Americans. This resulted in the decimation of the sugar cane and Cotton farming in the W Indies causing great hardship and poverty in the region as the plantations could not compete with the free labour and exploitation of the US.
They do not have any comprehension of what happens outside their borders. I find it somewhat condescending to say that people who go to Rugby or Football matches have no understanding of the songs origins. Of course we do, and by singing it at sports venues we mean no disrespect to the slaves and African Americans, which they, quite rightly, still have a guilt complex about.
