Hi Dylan , I am aware of the food banks , and I do not think they are a bad thing , In many cases it means that there will be those who are less
fortunate , that will get food . cheers .


Hi Angel, do they have food banks in Canada?

If they do then i think the western world is in a bigger mess than even i imagined, what about other parts of the world, US, Australia, NZ, etc.

Come on Ex pats, are we all in the brown stuff?

thought I would add this to the pot .


2011 International Aid Donated (Official Development Assistance) COUNTRY For each $100 earned in the country, how much is donated in aid Aid as % of income How close the country is to reaching the 0.7% goal *snip*



I couldn't care less which country spends what on foreign aid, if our politicians feel the desire to eradicate poverty or educate the uneducated then they should use that 0.7% and start within these borders. If they and others wish to help people abroad then simply pull out your own cheque book.

Please - I put this Topic in for people to have rational discussion about the Independence Issue, of which Glasgow will play a crucial role - yay or nay

Long diatribes about pro's and con's of food banks are WAY off the mark.
(As are statisitics about 'feeding the world' angel)

I would politely ask those who wish to enter into the debate, to remain on topic.

Point taken, apologies, i started the food bank discussion only as to make a point as to why such a potentiality rich small country should be squandering £Billions on armaments when clearly the money could be put to better use on providing care for her people.

Really is there any one/1/wan good reason to vote no in the referendum, people can shout all they like about staying within the Union but even one good reason would be better than the overwhelming silence that comes from any of the pro unionists on the board or off it.

Personally when this debate first surfaced on the board I was a fence sitter more concerned with going with the option that would provide more jobs for Scots people.
I couldn't give a monkeys if somebody in London ,Newcastle or Liverpool loses out on a job for the sake of the job coming to Scotland.

Ever since I can remember going back to the 50's any time companies had to downsize (lovely word that to describe a families heartache) it was ALWAYS at the expense of the branch in Scotland.

We have had over 300 years of one way traffic when it comes to affluence I say its time to take it back.

I wont have a vote but I do have an opinion.

The London Borough of Wandsworth granted detailed planning permission for Phase One of the Battersea Power Station development on 13 December 2012.


This followed the Autumn Statement on 5 December 2012, in which the Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed the UK government’s support for a £1 billion loan and a guarantee to extend the Northern Line underground (for access to new development @ wee davy)

Wonder who these companies are that are going to develop everything? Wonder if the profits will /how be paid? Wonder if the loan is a 999 year one?

Glasgow gets sweet FA for a half decent face lift for the public face of their City Centre

It pays to vote No?

With the FM being cleared of not breaching the ministerial code, i wonder if the better together NO campaigners will finally come up with examples of why we are better together or are they planning their next mud slinging campaign.

I doubt if we will hear any apologies for the "Bare faced liar" comments either.

I posted this up on one of the other independence threads wee davy, but i thought it would fit in with your non party politics, give good reasons for and against dissolving the union debate, i'm glad to see that this one has an air of civility about it, well done both sides.

I would like to thank the members for respecting my request.

My old boss was a great one, for 'what ifs'.
It is indeed a very useful way of coming to reasoned conclusions.

What if Scotland DOES vote for Independence?
Have you thought about how it might affect your immediate circumstances?
(I'm addressing the resident Glaswegians of course)
Do you think things will change in the short term?
If so, ... HOW?
How do you feel things might change, in the longer term?
Or don't you really give a fig? (If so,... your on the wrong thread)

Independence seems to be a done deal as far as Blackberry are concerened I was downloading a new App for my phone and had to put in the country I am in, while scrolling down looking for South Africa I found Scotland listed, they have never been listed seperately before always as part of the UK.
The UK is still listed.
