Re: Australia Burns

Totally agree with the sucking oil out of the North Sea. SNP have stated that Scotland will be Fossil fuel free by 2030 but will continue to extract oil and sell to others which kinda defeats the fossil free promises, same as Morrison pledging to reduce carbon emissions in Australia but continues to...

Re: Australia Burns

For thousands of years, the Indigenous people of Australia set fire to the land. Long before Australia was invaded and colonised by Europeans, fire management techniques - known as "cultural burns" - were being practised. The cool-burning, knee-high blazes were designed to happen continuously and ac...

Iran ordered the closure of schools ? I think it's called respect for the 3days of mourning,as for expensive funerals ,how much does it cost to a shroud and a lorry, Muslims don't even have to pay for a hole to be dug as traditionally the family dig the hole. Compare that to the amount spent droppi...

Re: Single malt in 7-Eleven?

Assuming you're talking about liquor, the best I can recall seeing in a 7-11 is Johnnie Walker. Villa has a good variety of single malts Johnnie Walker in every colour is a blended whisky. The same as Bells and Grouse. Way overpriced for what it is. Never seen a Malt on sale in a 7/11. Seriously, u...

Israeli propaganda Just how do you make that assumption. Apart from his name?? Israel has far more to worry about from the Sunni regimes than the Persians. The double fact that the USA see's the Sunni's as an ally in this sectarian issue is quite unbelievable. Just remember it is Wahhabism that adv...
