    There's a web-site somewhere for reporting potholes, at least there is for our area. I reported a couple and they got fixed.

    I did consider toning it down but figured that there weren't too many shithouse rats or syphilitic chancres round here to get upset at the comparison.

    TBF, you could have also called him a syphilitic chancer.

    They have done at least one good thing and bunged Scotland an extra £4bn so independence makes even less economic sense.

    No he shouldn't...he has already failed one bus test:rolleyes:, and there are enough lunatics on the road without adding to the problem

    Don't say that too loudly, Pete. A functional public service? Whatever next? The Tories will soon implement cuts to get rid of that. :(

    FTFY, Andrew. :) Important to read the small print on any of this government's spending announcements.

    Don't be silly, no Tory MP wants to actually work.

    In fairness he never said it was a Tory. Perhaps she was labour doing a bit of labouring.

    Thinking about it, you are probably right. Doing something useful for the community isn't a Tory ideal either.

    Aye, seems like they are getting much of it back on baccy and petrol :mad:.

    Nicola's comment on it was that they were going to look deeper to check that the wool wasn't getting pulled over her eyes but to me it sounded like the rug was getting pulled from under her. Not seen figures from an economist but I think it means Scottish taxpayers would have to pay close to £2,000 a year more than they do currently to maintain the same level of services (instead of an extra £1,600 or so, iirc).

    Somewhat <ahem> Liberal use of the word 'Labour', there Nige. ;)

    Doesn't sound like much of a "bung" from government, if it means the taxpayer is going to have to pay £2000 more instead of £1600 more, for the same level of services. :confused:

    Either I've misunderstood, or there's something fishy going on there. Obviously, I'm not suggesting any kind of sleight-of-hand by Johnson's mob. That would be very wrong of me. o_O

    The extra cost to Scottish taxpayers would be in an independent Scotland. I probably wasn't as clear as I should have been :oops:.
