  1. Agreed. I'm sorry Viv, I'm afraid you or rather Salmond have failed to do this, which is why this thread is so frustrating, and rather pointless. Bit like running around in ever decreasing circles really, until anything concrete is presented. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I do seem to recall that you went out canvassing for the Lib Dems relatively recently? They are second on the list of things I don't like very much after Cameron, and are partially responsible for the British Govt. you're criticising.
  2. Good point. Was going to post something along these lines on The Queen Thread. It is a disgraceful situation, but a private company was simply hired to deal with stewards. I don't think that the fact that they turned out to be dealers in slave labour should have any connection to the Royal family. This company have been well and truly named and shamed in The Guardian, and I wouldn't imagine they'll be getting many contracts in the forseeable future. Hopefully they're being investigated.
  3. Professor Green. What a charming guest. Remember I liked him when he was on Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Whilst his music might not be top of my list, he's been very entertaining on both Sunday Brunch and today's show.
  4. Not every hit on here necessarily guarantees a vote. Think it was 'Things Can Only Get Better', by DReam, with Prof Brian Cox on keyboards no less.
  5. Yup, Claude will be on too. Received this tweet last Wed. when I was asking about Margaret.: The Apprentice @Twitprentice "Yes, @KingTutsWWH I can confirm Margaret Mountford will be back for the interview stages, but so will Claude...... #twitprentice" He is evil! *rubs hands together with glee*. Wonder if any of them were stupid enough to lie on their CV...
  6. Sorry it wasn't the right one. At least you got some Chappers action, and it maybe provided a taster for the proper one.
  7. Margaret Mountford is on tonight! Frankly feeling rather over excited about this. I love her. Even if you haven't watched much of the series, her grilling of the candidates will provide fantastic entertainment.
  8. I think I was given Bridesmaids for my last birthday. We both love Chris O'Dowd from the IT Crowd (fantastic programme), but weren't at all keen on this. Didn't like Napoleon Dynamite much either. So what do we know? Never seen Anchorman either!!!!! Eeek! What rocks? Relatively long weekend. Boyf has to work on Tues though. Pfft.
  9. To continue with Sterling does seem a rather half arsed token attempt at independence I'm afraid. Have you researched SNP thoughts on the military yet? I have a feeling it might be of a similar vein.
  10. Part 2 etc. should pop up on right hand side when you've finished watching. Edit: Well they would if I hadn't embedded it. They will if you look this up on You Tube.
  11. I do care, but interestingly not a single Scot I know in real life or online is in favour of Scottish independence, apart from one obviously. I know quite a few Scots, and have a huge love of the country having studied in Glasgow for four years, plus my mum's guardian was a Dr McAllister from Edinburgh. Not that this qualifies me to say what should or shouldn't happen. I'd just like to point out that the concensus of opinion between my friends appears to be that independence would immeasurably weaken Scotland. This bothers me. Informative article, especially regarding the fact that should Scotland become independent, they'd need to build a firmer allegiance with Europe. Not such a good plan. Much as I originally supported the Euro, I realise I may have been wrong on this one.: http://www.thenationalstudent.com/Features/2012-01-16/Scottish_independence__Is_it_good_or_bad.html The following Wiki bit also suggests, amongst other things that Scotland is already benefitting from the revenue from their oil (see Reality of the Claim).: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It's_Scotland's_oil I can completely understand that Scottish people may well feel humiliated by the current Government, so do I! But I didn't vote them in. We all have a vote. I notice Scotland is mainly Labour, there are around four Tory voting areas, a few Lib Dem bits, and only two or three SNP parts. Doesn't this say something? General election 2010 results map: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/2432632/UK-General-Election-2010-political-map.html
  12. I didn't particularly enjoy the guests this morning. Barely heard a word from Tom jones, mind you he didn't say much on Graham Norton the other day either. We only watched The Voice until they stopped doing the turny around chair bit, after that it all became standard formulaic X Factor stuff. I too am looking forward to Gary Barlow (CBE, MBE, OBE, Sir? ) tomorrow. PS. Wretch 32 (silly name) was an excellent guest. Very inspiring.
  13. Here's a link to the first part for you. The next parts should follow.: <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/D4a6i9yQ0YE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> I seem to recall Scott spent most of the episode pointing the camera up his nose.
  14. Thank you very much for your messages. Trying to look on the bright side, he leaves behind my grandmother, 16 years his senior, who will be 100 in August. Wonder if the King of Spain\Sweden send telegrammes...
  15. Blimey. I honestly thought this whole thing was a joke until I saw this.: http://www.timminchin.com/2012/05/16/tims-playing-judas-in-the-first-ever-uk-arena-tour-of-jesus-christ-superstar/ Chris does actually have a good singing voice, but this has truly surprised me.
  16. He was a fantastic guest. What a lovely man.
  17. My grandfather's died. In Spain, so I can't even get to the funeral.
  18. She's been off for some time now so I thought I'd try to find out what was up. Found this from Beccy on Twitter today: Explanation of Clinical Isolated Syndrome: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinically_isolated_syndrome Poor thing. Sounds pretty serious.
  19. Wonder if Madonna ever regrets Like a Virgin? I've very much enjoyed the Show and Tell part of the show this week. Yesterday's was hilarious. Go look it up if you missed it. Yes it is pretty immature, as is Innuendo Bingo, but I think they both work. Don't agree that there has been less talk and more music. Actually judging by the sheer quantity of talk, I reckon TOTDS has been working his backside off!
  20. Nice thread. There are some absolute beauties up there. Good taste people of UM. Groove Armada and Zero Seven are two of my most favourite things ever. Such good songs. Might pop up a few for now. Warning: Slightly eclectic taste. May be back too. This is pretty. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VH9tAIChM5M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> The following is lovely, and was recommended to me by @quantick on Twitter when I wanted to listen to The Smiths. He doesn't like them very much at all, so every time I threaten to listen to them he has to 'save me' with a new track or two. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VVNqPmScxIo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> This is cosy snuggly song. Always chills me out, even though the lyrics aren't so happy. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/KhedKAhHqK8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  21. Agreed. Didn't find this particularly entertaining either. I'm afraid I'd put the fault mainly down to Moyles and Dave. Rather dopey\lazy (perhaps trying to be 'edgy') script\questioning. Le Blanc has come across very well in all the other interviews I've seen. Hmm. Don't let it put you off having a look at Episodes though. 11 May BBC2 10pm.

    Olympics !!

    This made me laugh.
  23. Yes he is plugging a new series of Episodes. I like Friends in small doses, but am disconcerted by the diehard fans who'll do a day's Friends marathon. Weirdos. Anyway Episodes is rather funny and pretty dark, not cloying in the slightest. I think you should give it a try Viv.
  24. I thought Moyles' voice even sounded slightly different this week, he seemed so perky. Glad to have him and the team back. Miss Scott though.

    Olympics !!

    I'm afraid I'm not the slightest bit interested in The Olympics. The politicians claim they will bring wealth to London. Hmm. To whom precisely? I feel for the friends and family I have in London, most of whom will actually lose work, partly because they're so worried about being able to physically get to it. I'm also not confident London's infrastructure is anywhere near ready for what's going to hit it. Let's hope I'm wrong. Agree with Steph. Might watch some horsey stuff and gymnastics. Perhaps a little diving. Daresay women's volleyball will probably be on the agenda too
