    Nicola Sturgeon's dreams of an independent Scotland joining the EU while adopting its own currency are lying in tatters.

    Any Scot worth his porridge will tell you that England did not 'conquer' Scotland. (To be precise, England conquered Scotland briefly in the 1650s under Cromwell, then it left again.)

    Scotland...
  8. There was a Scottish independence referendum,...

    There was a Scottish independence referendum, with the full cooperation of the UK government, in 2014. The remainers won by 55% to 45% in an 85% turnout.

    If that's the case, it took a helluva long time.

  13. If Hillary was fired, why was she still paid...

    If Hillary was fired, why was she still paid until Sept 4, 1974 - after the Nixon investigation was wound up? (That's not an opinion, it's a documented fact.)

  15. Let me try to put this precisely. I think that...

    Let me try to put this precisely. I think that Trump sees no clear distinction between truth and falsehood. To him it’s a matter of convenience, or even a spur of the moment thing.

    You might say...
  16. If Biden said he made billions by his financial...

    If Biden said he made billions by his financial genius AND KEPT ON SAYING IT, that wouldn't bother you in the least? Got it!

    After all, we expect American presidents to lie bigly. :rolleyes:
  17. Haven't you seen people say that he turned a few...

    Haven't you seen people say that he turned a few millions into billions, so he must be something really special?

    But if he didn't do that - only claimed to have done it - that would make him a...

    I never understood what anyone saw in him in the first place, so I don't understand what they don't see in him now.
