Exit Polls - The last EU referendum vote was 41 years ago and there was no exit polling done then, therefore there was no baseline to measure how people voted yesterday. This is the same for the Scottish Independence Referendum 2 years ago. LINK EXPLAINING A BIT BETTER THAN I COULD
The Scottish Vote - Scotland has been a very pro EU country (for better or worse)and the SNP is also a very pro EU party. The SNP hold just under a majority in the Scottish Parliament and sent all but 3 MP's to Westminster in the last general election. Taking those key points together, the Scottish vote is not "strange" but in fact very predictable. It now sets up to a future Independence Referendum with hopefully a better result than last time.
Been away from the forums for a while now, just caught up with this thread, some really impressive shots guys, wonderful stuff. I few from the Golpsie Sprints which I've just uploaded, feel a tad dirty in lowering the standard though....but why change a habit of a lifetime.
I don't know if anyone saw the Gordan Strachan clip when he talked about the lack of morals in the game, but the frankly disgusting amount of glea and happiness at Neymar's injury is a perfect example of what he was saying.
Nobody......and I mean nobody....would be in the stands and refuses to celebrate a winning goal just because it may have been a dive that won the penalty or the player who scored has just returned from a 10 game ban for chomping down on someone. This is the same lack of morals which Strachan highlighted.
So to say that a pretty serious injury is desereved just because a player may have dived or conned the ref, then logic will say that you'll be happy to see your own team suffer serious injuries also.....and even if you take that into consideration that level of thought still seems justified, well then there's bigger problems here.
I don't like diving, play-acting, time wasting etc either, but I wouldn't advocate that all who do it end up in hospital. I'd rather punishments like retrospective red cards and bans were used.
First of all, I knew the "piggy" version which makes more sense.....I mean come on, a Tiger roars not squeals.
Secondly this was a non broadcasted edit withdrawn from the final edit by Clarkson himself. It was never intended, or used, for public transmission because the mumbling sounded as if the n word was used (full disclosure, I have only listened to it in a busy office and struggled to hear it fully)
Thirdly, this broke on the website of one of the tabloid papers, who along with the other red-tops have been hammered by the phone tapping enquiry, an enquiry which btw Clarkson was heavily in favour for and campaigned for. Now I'm not possibly suggesting that the Mirror are gunning for Clarkson....nope not me....would never entertain the idea at all......well maybe slightly then.
I'm not particularly found of Clarkson. I think he's a right wing, Tory poster boy, utter Bellend. But not for a second do I think he's a racist. The mumbling of the word was obviously part of a script to try and generate some humour from that line, personally I don't find that funny but then humour is subjective depending upon the individual.....people find different things funny...but in no way should there be a sacking over this.
