The SNP lie using percentage figures. If I have £20 and give you £1 I've just given you 5% of my budget. If you have £100 and give me £3 you've just given me 3% of your budget. Despite the fact I...

Someone mentioned the Scots 'subsidise' the UK. Most recent GERS (Scottish Government publication)
The aim of GERS is to enhance public understanding of fiscal issues in Scotland. It estimates...

They'll be down what I give them, and I don't think I'm the only one planning to move out at the earliest opportunity if Yes wins. I'd prefer to be gone before Independence so I don't need to dignify...

People consistently miss the point of the Oil debate. Proven reserves don't mean squat, Scotland having 10 or 100 years left of Oil doesn't mean squat. How long will a large market for Oil last? In...

Might buy us a one-sided Currency Union with London keeping most of the power (which isn't a real Independence anyway...) but there's so much else to negotiate for. The UK could even base their...

If Scotland votes to leave I give us until the 5th of May 2016 before we start looking to ditch the idea. Once negotiations start and people realise everything the SNP claimed would just fall into...

BBC news tonight has said Standard Life is officially moving parts of their business south, Lloyds is preparing to move in the event of a Yes, and so too is RBS. So much for competing with London for...

Congraultations to Youngfool, he shall receive an upgrade to his existing medal!

Scottish companies are the hardest hit: a 1% drop in the pound with Scottish share drops as high as 2.43%. It would seem the money markets are losing faith in Scotland more than the United Kingdom by...
If AoW isn't out by then we will postpone, but prepare for a 21 Sept start provisionally.
I don't have a friends request from anyone.
Shall we start this game in 2 weeks? 21 September?
This is how the Bedroom Tax should've been implemented in the first place: put penalties on people with legitimately no reason to have larger houses than they need. Penalising people with medical...
Post 38 you listed those three.

Do you think the SNP really care about presenting realistic figures on what a 'UK Oil Fund' would've amounted to? Do you think the Yes camp will even care? 'Squandered Scotland's Oil' is an effective...

On top of promising an Oil Fund and promising to use Oil to fuel higher public spending in Scotland, Salmond is now promising tax cuts for the Oil firms.
Apparently this oil money can do...
Ottomans>Byzantium is just an ez-mode way to play Byzantium and results in the exact same problem we're trying to avoid in the first place. At the very least Byzantium should have to fight their way...
The following clashes exist:
Castille: Nelon and Campy
Burgundy: Petrucci, Cpdwane
Poland: Ciciro, Ciabhan
The player named first posted first. The six players named are encouraged to contact...

Scotland cannot join the EU without the Sterling Union, according to the former Commissioner for the Monetary Union, because it will not have a currency backed by a central bank.
That's a pretty...

See, that's an interesting point. My girlfriend (also a No voter) occasionally gets upset at me for referring to the Yes case as anything from wishful thinking to downright retarded because...

The final shall be Legourou vs Youngfool! Well played to f0ma, and congrats for reaching the semi-final!
To send a trade fleet at an enemy node to collect income from it I need to assign a merchant, which aren't unlimited in number. In addition, collecting from a non-home node inflicts huge penalties...

Well as I said a few posts up I'm already looking at the job market for my field in England & Wales, and in Australia, just in case. :P

I wouldn't bet on it considering support for Yes is always high 30s/low 40s. That's an awful lot of people who should know better.
August 25, 2014, 05:25 PM
Interesting revelation there, seems that there's been little shift at all. It's also been said that 15 people shifted No > Yes and 4 Yes > No. 11 people of 505 is 2.1%, and that it went from 42/47 to...
My positions on each point:
1. West/East only: What would you regard as sufficient players, Must? Europe normally has 5-10 players in it. At the moment we have 6 who have picked European powers of...

Yes 45%, No 47%, a +3% gain for Yes on the last Snap Poll done by the Guardian/ICM after the first televised debate, where it was 42/47 Yes/No.
Polls after the first debate showed 20%, 13%, 9%...

On principle I think I'd refuse or renounce any Scottish Citizenship I was offered. I've made my choice: I'll stay a Scot only if Scotland stays British. If that doesn't happen, I intend to make a...

Luckily the job I'm in is a job that allows me to move about without much difficulty. England here I come if the worst should happen. :P Or Australia, lot of blokes from work have taken up offers to...

Turns out Salmond may have done more than edged it. Snap Guardian/ICM poll returned 65% Salmond won, 26% Darling won, 9% Undecided. I hope that won't be reflected in a swing in the polls: Salmond may...

The SNP have historically opposed further Devolution, arguing 'Independence is the only way'.
August 25, 2014, 04:13 PM
I noticed that admission too, which was indeed quite mature of him to do. I think it'll get overlooked in the short time we have left, though.
The BBC coverage called it a slight Salmond win,...
August 25, 2014, 03:52 PM
I think Darling is doing ok though. Certainly he's being more assertive and has scored points, but I feel he brings up currency too much. Everyone knows it's a battle he's already won, he should be...

This is a very chaotic debate, the moderator isn't controlling them at all. Most of the time they're just shouting over each other.
August 25, 2014, 03:09 PM
I would agree but I think he's holding his ground, and that's all he needs to do. Salmond needs a win, Darling needs a draw: a win for Darling would be a fantastic boon for him, putting the final...
August 25, 2014, 03:03 PM
Darling has certainly come out swinging so far, I'd argue he's more aggressive and assertive than last time. Salmond grabbed the 'Westminster can't stop us using the Pound' statement with both hands...
1. As discussed in the Skype chats and other game thread. Do we want to try this out to ensure everyone has to compete with someone?

2. Ban Privateers?
3. Anything else?

If you can get a Graduate-level job then yes, but every time the subject comes up in the UK you always get the media interviewing some poor Graduate that has had to take up work in a bar because...

I'm of a mixed mind about this.
First I would agree that the trend has been for exams to get easier instead of harder over my own lifetime, something I benefited from I suppose, finishing school...
