Every time there is a drought anywhere the news channels prop up a reporter at a convenient almost dry reservoir. In the backgrounds are huge areas of sand and silt.

Why don’t the water companies get a JCB and a couple of lorries and dig all of it out to increase storage capacity?

Simples? I don’t know – is there a reason why they don’t?

    Personally I have ruled out an alien abduction but on the other hand….

    Seriously, right on cue a Troll is ordered to break cover! Are we nearer the truth than we might like to believe? In my opinion nothing connected to the SNP happens without the sayso of SNP Central. Are we living in a more totalitarian society than any of us dared think?

    The state of suspended animation of For Argyll seems very strange. If the management decided to pull the plug would they not have pulled the plug completely and left us with blank screens?

    It certainly is very odd for a commercial site to closedown in this manner, giving no explanation and leaving the ignition running as it were.

    I am still puzzled as to why there has been no Troll activity at all on this thread as far as I can see. Have they succeeded in their aim of closing the site down? If some kind of legal gag has been applied, it must be some gag.

    Hardly an argument – just an observation.

    At this moment in time I see that I have 6 thumbs up and you have one thumb down.

  • The measure of Britain – who cares about Gibraltar?
    I have to say that I do not understand why Spain wants Gib back apart from sentimentality, ie it used to be part of Spain. It is too small to have any real economic value to Spain. The fact that the Spanish have no inclination to return their 2 African enclaves to their surrounding countries seems illogical to say the least.

    There are no easy answers to problems like these. I would tend to support the view that the will of a majority of the residents should be accepted and supported the Falklands war on that basis.

    Then there is A Salmon’s ( and others ) attitudes to independence in Scotland which is solely based on sentimentality as it makes no economical sense either.

    Is fragmentation of nations/states the best way ahead for the world? Or should we be accepting that the future of the planet lies in alliances and pragmatism rather then historical incidents of history?

    Is the future an enigma wrapped up in a conundrum ?

    You write like an idiot!
