Nope. ;)

I just want to know who the 715 arseholes in Inverclyde were that voted for those UKIP fuckwits.

Lots of Portillo moments and an outcome that no-one predicted, so the results were more exciting than the campaigns.

Yes loads of big names dropping like fly's across the whole of the UK, way more exiting than the campaign, be interesting to see what the Tories do now they have the whip hand being LibDem free in Cabinet.

How's the voter turnout been where you guys are?

Inverclyde was 75.25%.

That's exactly what they are.

The lower halves of pin hinges, to get technical.

Any of you folks got BT broadband?

I'm thinking of getting it installed (since we already have a BT landline), seeing as it'll work out cheaper for me than topping up a Three wi-fi dongle whatsit every couple of weeks (and running out of credit at vastly inconvenient moments).

Found BT a bit slow. Big drop off at peak times, sometimes 16mb to around 1mb. :(

Does anyone think it odd the banks are trying to get rid of the old pound coins and yet some shops say they will extend the period?

I don't know about Glasgow but in parts of N.I. they haven't even adapted for the new coins yet. In recent times I've used old coins in car park machines and the security man where I work regularly swaps new ones for old.
Otherwise people have no mission of using vending machine.

I believe there are some places where this is not the case but you'd expect large organisations to be prepared.
They've had plenty warning these new coins were coming in so why are some places so far behind?
