  1. Hi, entering this debate late and in the end its for the Scottish people to decide but this potentially has much broader implications for the rest of the UK so maybe the voting population should have reflected that. As for the debating points I think each side of the debate should have been required to provide a balanced view as to how all the positives would be funded at the outset but we are too advanced for that to be implemented. The realistic outcome is that people will vote with their hearts as no alternative factual arguments have been established, and my view is that with immediate effect Scottish Westminster MPs should be withdrawn from the Houses of Parliament due to an obvious conflict oif interest in the event of a Yes vote ,I don't see how Scottish MPs can be allowed to influence Westminster policy from than point onwards. In the event of independence then separation would be prescribed and consequently it cannot be acceptable to allow influence on the previous Union's fiscal policy and responsibily has to be accepted for any debt jointly incurred and any attempt to avoid debt responsibilities will be punitively dealt with by forces external to the UK and any view otherwise is frankly naive. ---------- Post added 10-09-2014 at 23:13 ---------- Hi, entering this debate late and in the end its for the Scottish people to decide but this potentially has much broader implications for the rest of the UK so maybe the voting population should have reflected that.

  2. Once again thanks for all contributions, needless to say I'm going to employ sensible caution during the early days. For information I have been regularly cycling at the coast but it is much quieter than here hence the caution. I will report back on progress.
  3. OK, so I'm picking the bike up this weekend and going to explore routes this weekend. As It's probably as quiet as it will get, was me luck !
  4. I work in the city centre and regularly see people in the subways etc, I'm not not sure how many are genuinely homeless but find the increasing number of younger people involved concerning. I do think that there is more that could be done to provide shelter in the many empty buildings in the city and a proactive policy to help people back into mainstream society could be established. I think this would help eliminate the "fake" homeless for want of a better phrase as they would be screened out of such initiatives
  5. I have to say that I my opinion there are a lot of the arts that are only there because of heavy subsidies via the arts council, whilst I appreciate that we would want to support the arts in general I think that there is a significant proportion that wouldn't even come close to being self supporting without those subsidies and we should question their support.
  6. I stopped pre booking taxis years ago, just ring when I'm ready and usually turn up within 10-15 mins.
  7. Hello, I've recently purchased a DE Razor and was wondering if anyone knew of local shops that supplied accessories etc. I have purchased a soap bowl from Crab tree & Evelyn and some blades and an Alum bar from the web which keep me going for a while but wanted a local supply going forward.
  8. Hello, I attended the business studies / accountancy course at Sheffield poly 1982 - 1986 and wondered if any one else was still in Sheffield PM if yes
  9. Thanks for the help. Will let you know how I get on.
  10. OK so I've made many attempts to track down details of Grandparents in the pasts with little success. In essence I want to find info on one of my grandfathers past mainly what part he played during WW1. I know he was in the RGA and was invalided out after he was gassed. I've tried to use ancestry.co.uk amongst others but he had a common name and got nowhere, any advice ?
  11. Just a question, I thought when you started or contributed to thread you received an e mail notification of any replies is this not the case ?
  12. Hope you get it sorted soon, I've had some minor damage but nothing by comparison by the sound of it.
  13. Thanks squiggs, that's roughly the route that Google came up with. As you say a few of these are ok for the journey from ecclesall road to malin bridge but much harder the other way. Getting the bike through cycle scheme in a few wees so will try it out over a few weekends to test the gradients !!
  14. Thanks scozzie, good advice I already have a helmet and have allowed for lights etc... as you can probably guess reason for looking for quieter route is to minimize risk. Can find plenty of quiet routes which usually involve going over university and either walkley or crookes via multiple side roads not impossible but hard work.
