    All we need is another 20 years or so, just one more generation, and we will have brutally stolen pretty much all Scottish wealth there is to steal and then we can put the 2nd half of our plan in motion.... Once we have pocketed everything, we give you the independence you seek so your economy...

    Good discussions...can you provide a link? I've never heard of the living north sea project, might be interesting.

    I take back my earlier comments about all Scottish politicians. Reading this, she's quite an impressive person. https://www.holyrood.com/inside-politics/view,hope-not-hate-interview-with-kate-forbes

    Ah, good point well put. It was fatist. But I'm a proper fat b'stard so can't I do that? That didn't read well....by "do that", I didn't mean being a sex pest but I did mean being fatist to others as a fat b'stard might be acceptable.

    I think mine was removed after referencing George Galloway's cat impersonations and Alex Salmond's lawyer's assessment of his behaviour and the standard of Scottish politics when folk are looking forward to their televised debate.

    Covid Injection

    Ah but the pandemic isn't real I tell ya!!! So there is no risk from Covid!! But the vaccines...omg...they are real when they give you blood clots or don't, but only placebo when they don't, or do. Or summat like that. What we are witnessing is the death of proper risk assessment in the face of...

    Either you need to read my post again or you have just proved me 100% correct.

    All good points. The thing that gets me is that the EA insist on triploid stocking to protect the genetic integrity of native trout, but government environmental organisations happily allow fish farmers to wreck the genetic integrity of native salmon stocks in many rivers by allowing fertile...

    When you were fishing the river Team, you were fishing the old course of the River Wear before the last ice age when the Wear was a tributary of the river Tyne and went from CLS up through team valley to the Tyne. Apparently the last ice age dropped huge mounds of glacial deposits between CLS...

    Greenlaner is right, it's still a cracking river to fish, its just the trout fishing "isn't as good as it was many years ago". So don't sell your gear, get down for the trout with Czech Nymphing tackle or heavy weighted nymphs swung deep and across. I whinged on to an old guy about eight to...

    With respect, old people have been saying that since, well, hundreds of years ago. You are just a modern form of luddite, completely and utterly predictable, unoriginal, nothing new, just another generation who believes the world is going to sh1t...And what happens? The world progresses, we get...

    I could write an equally bnllsh1t filled article on how the relaxation of the law coming out of the pandemic will eventually lead to lawlessness and a total breakdown of society, with no rule of law, judiciary, governance, etc., therefore we should strengthen, not weaken government power. But I...

    If there was no fish life, there would be no goosanders and cormorants. So there must be fish life or fish eating birds would go elsewhere. Until recently, there were 20k or more returning spawners most years. If you go with a mortality rate at sea of 98%, around a million smolts leave the river...

    Yeah, but standing on the a167 road bridge and watching the big sea trout bow waves running through is quite impressive. The sludge is from farm runoff. The tyres are from anywhere...could easily be the bridge ove rate a167. On the roads near my home, new piles of tyres turn up every couple of days.

    Not happy, I'm just not concerned either way. I'll still be English and British even if Scotland leaves. I'll only stop being British or a UK citizen if or when Great Britain and or the UK cease to be. And if Scotland does get indyref 3 and Scotland votes for independence by 51:49 then that...

    Are you suggesting Great Britain should decide Scotland's independence? I am English and British.

    Never heard of it but now that I have....everyone is entitled to their opinion. As an Englishman, you get used to anti English rhetoric at quite an early age. Like I said, the anti English rhetoric from the SNP is not really the point. Scotland determining their own future direction is a...

    Just a point of order....it's not really the UK arguing against independence. Scots argue for independence, Scots argue against Independence. Apart from the politicians south of the border who have a political interest in keeping the union together the rUK couldn't really give a fig either...
