Re: The not so short lived non argumentative political thread.

I don't see how the Shetlands can finance independence if they don't get control of some of the North Sea oil fields. They would also have to cooperate with larger nations on many fields and in some fields like the military they would be almost totaly dependent on other counties. Becomeing a Crown Dependency like Jersey with the control of some oil fields seems like the best outcome.
It will predent the SNP with quite a dilemma, especially because this situation has come about because of the SNP  ajb007/biggrin

Can‘t get any worse than that!



if anyone has followed any serious news outlet it should be known that very long time ago, the yellow vest protests have been hijacked by the usual extremist groups ( the vandalizing of national heritage in the Arc de Triomphe comes to mind).

And I am pretty sure teargas was not used because Macron is a fascist but these „demonstrations“ where violating existing law.
Pretty sure not even Macron is not in charge for this but the authorities (major) in Paris.
So the headline „Macron is a fascist because teargas is used against yellowvesters“ could not be any wronger and populist.

Just for context, France is having record Covid numbers again and everybody is mandated to wear a mask in public in Paris and public gatherings are heavily limited there.

My comment wasn't meant as humor.

I don't know if you were aware you linked to Russia Today, TP. I really hope you know RT is completely controlled by the Putin regime.

Re: The not so short lived non argumentative political thread.

It's not only the RT youtube link, it's sharing RT propaganda verbatim.

I usually ignore TP, but calling Macron a fascist is totally out of line - in particular as it's very much likely not Macron's decision to use teargas or not.
