Now, i believe that there is a climate emergency, although one rather wishes that the people who would lead us could have come to that conclusion themselves.
However, my wife made a valid point. If the SNP pushes forward and manages to hold and win a second independence referendum, can we assume that they won't be backing their economy on the extraction and sale of north sea oil?
Well, for those of you remotely interested, there is now a schism in the conifa family..............
Ellan Vannin were knocked out on the final day of the group stages by a 'surprising' 8 goal swing, which included them losing 2 - 0 to barawa.
Turns out barawa's star on the day, made 1 scored 1, is a full Libyan international and was a very late call-up, so late that he shouldn't be playing in the competition.
on finding this out, the IOM lodged an appeal, as you would, conifa turned it down on spurious grounds and our lot stormed off, taking their ball with them and refusing to play their best of the worst match.
conifa have now booted the IOM out of their confederation. Splitters!
I imagine the numbers can be made up by mother Russia annexing another area of someone else's country and entering them, alongside Donetsk and south ossetia
well, disappointed to miss Karl's kids as mascots last night, I presumed the normal pubs would have the match on, but no, the golf and, on one second screen, the rugby league took precedent. Not a sport we play on the island, but hey ho.
Eventually found a pub willing to put it on, though it took 10 minutes to work out how. Compensated by a cracking view over the harbour, watched the fishing boats coming in accompanied by really cheap beer.
But what an aural delight the pub was. Jukebox broken, so playing someone's mix, going from hardcore to neil diamond. In front of me the screen and the commentary. To the right, some bloke trying to attract a woman over to the island, "said I'd be effing honest all the way, done time....................right now? we'd be in bed". Irish music session to my left and down the stairs a bit.

The police pulled over a driver, saw him appear to swallow something and took him in for observation, where he passed a plastic package containing an assortment of drugs.
"a defendant who was carrying drugs told police he put them in his backside because they kept falling out of his pockets.......................referring to his somewhat unorthodox transportation, he told police (the package) kept falling out of his pockets so he put it between his buttocks. However, his carriage problems persisted so he pushed the package further up for safe-keeping, he claimed".
