blow up doll ....................

A bloke walks into an Adult sex shop and asks the assistant for an inflatable girlfriend.

"would you like a blonde or brunette?" asks the assistant

"a blond please" he replies

"Blue eyes or green?" the bloke was next asked

"Green please" he says with an eager smile

"Christian or Muslim" he was finally asked.

"What the heel has religion got to do with anything" asks the bloke, confused.

The assistant replies "Well the Muslim blows her self up!"

Wow......

Scotland the amazing............

Its not very often that I look at the world of sport and see the results I am now witnessing for Scotland. National and League teams seem to have found a new vigour, a new breath of life, a new OOMPH!

Champions League football - both old firms are in the qualifying stages of footballs most prestigious competition. Gunning for a place in the last 16, both teams are showing the world that Scotland is now no lomger an underdog nation, we can hold our own and we can kick your arse! LOL

Rugby world cup. Ok granted we were humped 40-0 by New Zealand but we put out a B team to save our first team players from injury as, although it was a horrific result we are still secound in our group and are in a good position to qualify.

Scotland Football team.
Need I say more?
Last year we achieved the unthinkable and won 1-0 against France at Hampden, amazing. Just recently we then travelled to Paris for the second leg and to everyones amazement we did it again!
SCOTLAND 1 - FRANCE 0

We now sit at the top of the table.
Scotland at the top of the group???? Im still pinching myself.

Scotland, Brainiest Bunch in Britain. Official!!

Test the Nation, a quiz on BBC Television was aired last night. They take teams of work groups such as surgeons, removal men etc etc and pitch them against each other in an IQ Test.
People at home can take part interactively and online.
Out of 70 questions, made up of memory tasks, observation tasks and the like, I managed 59 correct. This gives me an IQ of 125. Pretty good considering the highest is 146!! I am impressed if not a little surprised lol.
The BBC also collate the results from all interactive and online participants to find the average IQ of each of the 4 home nations, NIreland, Wales,England and of course Scotland.
Guess What!
Its no suirprise to me.............
SCOTLAND CAME TOP!!!
With an average IQ of 94.
Come on the Scots.
(For proof of our iontelligence read "whas Like us" down the right hand column.

Some Geographical Facts on Scotland

Scotland is the oldest rock on the British Isles, proving once and for all that Scotland was here first. It has two great lakes or lochs known as Loch Ness and Loch Lomond put there by the Scottish tourist board to attract visitors. The others are for the use of absentee land lords who generally reside south of the border.Scotland has lots of weather and usually all on the same day, apart from public holidays and the Glasgow Fair when it can be guaranteed to rain pissistantly(persistantly)

Scotlands had enough of...........

1) Sectarian Chants at football matches especially old firm!
2) The Shitty Summer Weather, again!
3) BBC Scotland showing nothing Scottish!
4) The very poor accents on River City!
5) Non Scots (heathens) not able to understand us Scots.
6) England and America forgetting that they didnt invent things but it was all our idea!
(see "Wah's Like Us" above)

Edinburgh Fringe Festival........

It is that time of year again. The population of Edinburgh swells twofold and none of the locals can get anywhere without losing their tit at some dipshit tourists who always seem to take up the whole pavement then decide to stop right in front of you!!!!!

The edinburgh Fringe festival started way back in 1947. It was officially penned as the fringe festival after journalist Robert Kemp reported ‘Round the fringe of official Festival drama, there seems to be more private enterprise than before … I am afraid some of us are not going to be at home during the evenings!’.

It has risen in popularity so much that it is now one of the largest festivals in the world and most definately the largest of its kind.

Accomodation is ussually booked up the previous year so if you do plan to visit next year, BOOK NOW!! (prices are hiked up a hell of a lot too).

From dance to literature, circus acts to serious drama there is something for everyone to enjoy no matter what age.

The best thing though is the Comedy!
Comedians from the world over gather to perform either established acts such as Ed Byrn Bill Bailey and the likes to new comers to the stand up circuit trying to grab recognition.
Some acts and venues can be quite expensive but familiar comedians are worth paying for.

Fancy free Fringing?????

Visit The Pear Tree House. Not only do they serve good cheap scottish pies, reasonably priced outdoor barbeques and a good array of lagers and ales the also boast a Beer Garden you could land a Boeng 747 in and this is where a fringe secret gem takes place. FREE FRINGING!
Different acts, mostly comedy, all day from 11am everyday of the festival and free.
Its a cracking day out and a very good way to catch free fringe shows.

a couple ay jokes

Fairy Washing Up Ad in Glasgow
Young girl washing up, takes her hands out of sink full of dish water and as she is drying them off, a young boy approaches and taking her hands into his, he begins to rub them and comments on how smooth they are.
Now, here is my interpretation of how the Ad should sound like, if being filmed in the infamous Gorbals area of Glasgow.
YOUNG BOY : 'Hey mammy! How's yer hauns sae saft?'
YOUNG GIRL : 'Cause ah'm only thirteen, ya fucken eedjit!'
Tam and Senga
Tam and his wife Sengawere walking in a shopping centre with their baby, when they decided to go into Mothercare for a look at some things. When they came back out they started to walk away, when Senga said, "Tam, that's not our baby".
Tam said, "Shut up and keep walking, it's a better pram"!

Tam confides.........

One day while sitting having a wee swally tam turned roon' Tae Jock and said
"I never slept with my wife before I married her. What about you"? He asked Jock.
Jock thought for a moment, then said,
"I’m not really sure Tam! What was her maiden name"?

Jock and Tam at it again.....

"alright Jock, it’s Tam here, how’s it hanging pal? D’you fancy goin’ along tae a funeral on Thursday? It’ll be a right good yin. A big ‘turn up’ is expected, without a single vegetable in sight".
"Who is it that’s getting buried?" Jock replied
"The deceased ya daft bugger, who dae ye think"?

"Well, I had already worked that out. So who was he"?

"Wullie Spencer! Apparently he was a van driver over at Hamilton". He replied.

"Whit he die oh"? Jock asked, showing some concern for a fallen weejie.

"What! All of a sudden you’re fucken ‘Quincy ME’? How the fuck wid I know, I just read it in the paper, but he died of something, or they widnay be burying him"!

Jock thought for a moment then said, "I don’t think I know him".
"Well ye don’t need to worry about it Jock, ‘cause yer no’ gonny be introduced, he's deid"!

Scottish slang

Geeza :- give me

John Smeaton Local Hero!

These are genuine quotes from new hero "Sir" John Smeaton (and some possible quotes from those American Folks)

Glasgow v America

If this had happened at a US airport as compared to Glasgow this would be some of the Eyewitness accounts;

America: “Oh my God! There was a man on fire, he was running about, I just ran for my life. I thought I was gonna die, he got so close to me.”

Glasgow: “C*nt wis running aboot on fire, so a ran up n gave him a good boot, then decked him.”

America: “I just wanna get home,away from here. I just wanna get home, I thought I was gonna die.”

Glasgow: “Here shug, am no leaving here till am oan a feckin’ plane!”

America: “There was pandemonium, people were running in all directions,we didn’t know what was hapening, I thought I was gonna die.”

Glasgow: “Feck this fir a kerry oan, moan, we’ll get a pint in.”

America: “We thought he was gonna blow us all up. He had a gas canister and was trying to get into his trunk, I thought we were gonna die, I just ran for my life.”

Glasgow: “A swaggered by the motor that wis on fire and the dafty couldnae even open his boot, he wis ‘n fire annaw so a ran up n gave him a good boot to the baws.”

America: “There was this huge explosion,it sounded like war, I thought I was gonna die.”

Glasgow: “There wis a bang, yi know when yi throw BO basher intae a fire it wis like that.”
America: “I’m too traumatised even to speak,I thought I was gonna die.”


Glasgow “Here mate, gies 2 minutes till a phone ma auld dear, if am gonna be oan the telly a want her tae tape it.”

& finally, two genuine quotes from a real eye-witness aka John Smeaton.

1) ITV news. The interviewer asked, “What message do you have for the bombers?” Smeaton replied, “This is Glasgow, we’ll just set about you.”

2) CNN. The interviewer asked, “How did you restrain the guy?” Smeaton replied, “Me and other folk were just tryin tae get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him."

Pure class.

And God created.......

In the beginning, The Lord God Almighty, sitting on His throne on high, turned to His mate, the Archangel Gabriel and said "Gabby, today I'm going to create Scotland. I will make it a country of dark beautiful mountains, purple glens and rich green forests. I will give it clear swift flowing rivers and I will fill them with salmon. The land shall be lush and fertile, on which the people shall grow barley to brew into an amber nectar that will be much sought after the world over. Underneath the land I shall lay rich seams of coal.In the waters around the shores there will be an abundance of fish and beneath the sea bed there will be vast deposits of oil and gas".
"Excuse me Sire", interrupted the Archangel Gabriel, "Don't you think you are being a bit too generous to these Scots"?"Not really", replied the Lord, "wait 'til you see the neighbours I'm giving them".

Terror Attacks...........

For the first time in recent history Scotland has become a Target for terrorists. Even the conflicts in Ireland in the 70's and 80's did not involve any part of our land.
There are many theories why we have now become targets including the transfer of power from Tony Blair to Gordon Brown, a scots man.

Scotland has suffered at the hands of mental terrorism for 3hundred years at the hands of the English Government. The tories tested the council tax on us but only scrapped it, like us, when the english public said NO. The first coal mines closed were in Scotland and we are always treated like a small region of England rather than a country with its own identity.
We have always fought against this, and now that we have a Scottish National Party government it is obvious we have had enough.

It will not take is 3hundred years to stand against the tyranny of terrorism. We stand united in our defiance to let this ruin our way of life. We are a proud nation, proud of our heritage, proud of our land and proud of our strength.

To anyone thinking about hurting this beautiful land of ours, we say:-

" away ye go you stupid buggers! Before we drag you doon a close an kick yer feckin heed in!"

Some excellent Quotes....................

"There are two seasons in Scotland - June and Winter."

"The great thing about Glasgow is that if there's a nuclear attack it'll look exactly the same afterwards."

“We Americans live in a nation where the medical-care system is second to none in the world, unless you count maybe 25 or 30 little scuzzball countries like Scotland that we could vaporize in seconds if we felt like it”

“Land of the hill and heather Land of the awful weather. Land where the midges gather- Scotland the Brave"

"KILT, n. A costume sometimes worn by Scotsmen in America and Americans in Scotland"

"In Scotland there is no such thing as bad weather - only the wrong clothes."

"Anyone going for a job in Scotland is advised to get themselves checked out by 15 psychiatrists"

"Dont tell me how to do my job. Do I come to your work and tell you how to sweep up?"

"Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that who gives a fuck, your a mile away from him and youve got his shoes."

Death of the Television......a bloody RANT!

Originally the BBC had only 2 television stations available and only 6 radio stations (some regional) and earned no revenue from advertisements or products, except the TV times. This was why we started paying th Liscense fee. Fair enough as we wanted to pay for the good content and classic programme quality.
Now, however, the BBC has roughly 32 Television and Radio channels available in the UK and a number of others in different countries around the world.
Last year the BBC were given £3.1 BILLION in liscence fees, £800 MILLION from selling productions to other channels and countries and a further £627 Million from selling DVD's, adio cd's and other related products.
Now if it wasnt bad enough that the whole of the UK have to, by law, have to pay the yearly fee please consider the following:-

17.5% of Scottish residents cannot receive the BBC's digital channels wether television or Radio (a higher percentage cannot recieve freeview.)We cannot instal Freeview because there are no relevant transmitters for digital, Cable companies wont consider installing the equipment it requires to receive this service due to the fact it would cost millions of pounds to lay the cables to these remote areas and to top it off we are unable to errect sattelite dishes due a rediculous "English" law which states that most of these affected areas have "CONSERVATION STATUS."
This means that we, us poor folks that cant receive digital, can only tune into 2 tv and 4 radio channels and we still pay the same fee as most of the population of the UK even though they get a hell of a lot more viewing choices!
Why oh Why should we when this is of no fault of our own I ask?
Another point, quite worrying this one, is that the area I live in will be the first region in the UK to switch over to digital and the analogue signal will end. This means in the Scottish Borders there will be a staggering 29.5%(13% will ahve to pay for a subscription service) of residents unable to watch their favourite programmes. More importantly I AM IN THIS CATEGORY!
To make things worse, and yes it can get worse, is that there are no deadlines for this to be resolved!
Bye Bye television, my old friend. You were my babysitter, my trusted confident and a truly special friend, but now it seems we will be parted for ever never to laugh, cry or gasp at the wonderful experiences we have shared. You will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

I must go and get really drunk now to try and forget the impending certainty that I will lose my best friend soon.

My Journeys Around Scotland.Part 1.1

It was quite a few years back, 20 to be precise, that my "Discover My Country" obsession began.
We Sarted in Crieff Perthshire, gateway to the Highlands, and embarked on a journey I will never forget.

My first "car", bought for me by my Farmer Parents, was an old Hydro Electric 1.1 deisel Ford Fiesta Mini Van. I am sure the mileage clock had gone round at least 3 times, oil constantly tried to escape from the rust ridden engine and the radiator went through water like a weggie on Irn Bru. Despite this I decided to cram two Ozzy friends, my best friend, myself and a lot of camping equipment and two case loads of Tennents Lager. I should point out that it was a very compact two seater with very little room in the back compartment and we had only 72 hours to discover the West Coast, the Grampian Mouintains, Braemar, Angus and then back to Crieff.



A rough plan was mapped out and was to take an overly optimistic route. First to Stirling for food supplies which takes about an hour, this part of the excursion went without a hitch.
Next stop was Kenmore on the banks of Loch Tay where we drove up the Moniche (pronounced Monzie (???) to Aberfelday back road and turned off at the first left single lane road which leads to our first proper destination. Beautiful scenery abundant, avoiding roaming sheep and sometimes having to stop and get out to scare them off the road, a high cliff ledge to our right and a very long drop to our left and very few passing places. After about an hour, travelling at about 26miles an hour due to the gradient of the hill, we encountered what seemed at the time the largest Bin truck I had ever seen. No room to pass, a drop to our demise at one side and a verry impenetrable cliff on the other, there was no way round and no way the truck driver was reversing. It was up to little, inexperienced me to reverse about three quarters of a mile to get back to the last passing place. I begin to reverse and to my horror the rear window was so small and dirty I couldnt look out there to navigate, I had no passenger wing mirror and the driver side mirror was pock marked with the kind of bubbling you only see in old victorian mirrors. We where DOOMED!
Slowly but surely, helped by my passenger hanging out his window, I started to reverse with the bin truck coming toward us in a very threatening manner. Just as I thought we were going to make it there was a scream from my three passengers, I panicked and instead of hitting the brakes I hit the accelaralator before hittng the brake. We were inches from plunging to certain death, and all of us were white with fear. I clambered out of the car, sorry van, and walked to the back and realised we were closer to the edge than we first thought. One wheel was over the edge and the other Flat. You guessed it, bloody rear wheel drive.
The four bin men, environmental technitions as they are known as nowadays, jumped from the cab of the truck and rushed to the back of my rust bucket vehicle and pissed themselves laughing. by this time my friends had joined me and we all burst into nervous fits of laughter that only occurrs after avoiding a near catostrophic accident.
The kind gentlemen helped us push my wee van to the middle of the road, changed my tyre and we all elected to push it down to the passing place to avoid another disaster.
We thanked them for their patience and help and handed over half a case of lager for their trouble, let them pass and slowly, much slower than before, eventually made it to Kenmore where we elected to go to the only pub, get very drunk and stay the night and leave very early the next morning to head on to our next stop. Onich.

19 hours gone 53 to go!

More true Stories.......

Scotrail are trying hard to keep customers informed about the reasons for the late running of trains. So when the train arrived at Edinburgh from Glasgow and the doors remained shut, the loud speaker announcement ran something like this - "We would like to apologise to passengers for the late opening of the doors. This is due to the guard's incompetence. This incompetence was caused by an accident at birth and everything possible is being done to rectify the situation."

When the ferry company in the Western Isles charged reduced rates for vehicles transporting sheep, some customers took advantage of this and took a sheep in the back seat of their car when going to the mainland (and had the same sheep on the way back). Eventually, the company had to change the rules.

In the middle of foggy night in the North-west Atlantic.....two lights are heading directly for one another... and on the radio an American voice is heard saying "We suggest you alter course by 10 degrees to port". Back comes the reply "We suggest YOU alter course by 10 degrees to port!" Then the American voice says "This is the battleship USS Missouri leading the American Atlantic battle fleet. You had better alter course by 10 degrees to port." Back comes the reply "This is the Outer Hebrides lighthouse, but it's your call, Jimmy".

Wee Jim and Auld Jock.....

Wee Jim and Auld Jock are "wanderin' doon the toon tae gan fir a pint."
Jock happens across a discarded mirror and picks it up and says to Jim.
"Hey wee jim ah recko'nise this face"
We Jim takes it off him and has a look and slaps Auld Jock around the head and says
"Nae wonder you auld numpty, its ME!"


Jim and Jock are a bit strapped for cash one day only having a single pound coin between them. "whit 'r' we gannae dae Jock, ahm chokin' fir a wee dram."
"Dinnay panick wee man. Huv ah ever let yeh doon!" jock replies. A couple of seconds later Jock darts into a Butchers shop and walks out with a great big grin and a huge sausage.
"wit the hell did yeh dae? Thats oor last poond man, an' yeh went an spet it oan a bloody Sausage?" Wee Jim was not happy.
"Ahve goat a plan just do as ah say." Jock leads wee jim into the nearest pub and asks the barman for two pints and two of the best Malts.
"Wit yeh daene Jock wuv nae money wul git thrown oot or they might even call the polis!"
Auld Jock whips out the sausage and sticks it through his open zipper and tells jim "here while that bar mans tallyin' up oan the till swally yer drinks fast and then git doon oan yer knees and stick yer gums roon this sausage." So they both gulp down the drinks, jim kneels down and puts his mouth around the sausage. The barman turns around to get the cash for the drinks and upon seeing whats going on de,ands that they leave immediately as "this is not that kind of establishment!"
Jimk and Jock repeat this in several bars and get the same outcome, free drinks. At the tenth pub Jim, rubbing his knees, turns to Jock and says "Its bin a great day, but we need tae stoap as ma knees are killin me and im pretty plastered anyway."
Jock replies "Yer kneese are sare. How dya think ah feel! I loast that sausage in the third bloody pub!"

Scotlands had enough of..................

The Scottish Sun claiming to be the "Voice Of Scotland"!

National Sports channels ignoring the Scottish Premier League!

Being reffered to as "ENGLISH"!

Scottish Sports personalities being reffered to as "British" when doing well and Scottish when not!

The English!

The Rain!

Not getting Snow in the winter but in APRIL!

The wisdom of the Scottish School Pupil

"I would like to apologise for the grafitti in your room especially as I had signed it!"

" You cannae fight!...Yae'd get a better fight fae a deid coo!"

"But Miss, I don't like the tap water. I like drinking the water in the boys' lavvies!"

"How are ye gonnae sign fir yur giro cheque if ye cannae write?"

"Magdeburg was a German scientist with balls seven feet in diameter
and when he attached two teams of horses to them, he couldn't pull them
apart"

T in the Park 2007

T in the Park is just around the corner and after being voted the "best music festival" in the UK last year it is a must see for all music lovers of all ages.

This year boasts an incredible line up and for the first time ever the Arena will be open on Friday evening, exclusively for campers.

The Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party and Lilly Allan will be the first ever Friday Acts.

James return to T in the Park this year and are one of the best received acts at Balado along with the Kooks, Amy Whinehouse, Babyshambles, Dizzee Rascal, Lostprophets, James Morrison and Snow Patrol to name a select few.

Now with an amazing 8 stages 132+ acts over this amazing weekend!!


A bit serious for this site I hear you mumble........but no!

At T in the Park you will not only witness great Music and entertainment from the number of artists in the line up, but also (especially if camping for the weekend), you will witness the great humour and inane banter that is exclusive to us Scots.

You will stumble across all walks of life, in all manners of sobriety and everyone is in good form, always.

From the late night parties in the Camping Village, (the camping area is so large it boasts its own Postcode. although getting mail delivered can be tricky - Mr reveller, 4017 tent, row 2181, camping village, balado), to the very drunk, hyper, exzcited, stoned or wasted party goers in the arena (there is never anyone completely sober)it is in no doubt an experience in Real Scottish Culture and banter you are never likely to forget!!

All 140,000 tickets have sold out, but dont despair you can still enter to win tickets from various web sites (google search "win t in the park) but failing that I urge you to be ready to buy 2008 tickets no matter what country you are from as this festival always proves to be AMAZING!

(Big Day Promotions have warned that despite their best efforts there are counterfieght tickets and unscrupuluos ticket touts out there so please BE CAUTIOUS!)

Why Scotland is a Braw Place!

In the beginning, The Lord God Almighty, sitting on His throne on high, turned to His mate, the Archangel Gabriel and said "Gabby, today I'm going to create Scotland. I will make it a country of dark beautiful mountains, purple glens and rich green forests. I will give it clear swift flowing rivers and I will fill them with salmon. The land shall be lush and fertile, on which the people shall grow barley to brew into an amber nectar that will be much sought after the world over. Underneath the land I shall lay rich seams of coal.In the waters around the shores there will be an abundance of fish and beneath the sea bed there will be vast deposits of oil and gas"."Excuse me Sire", interrupted the Archangel Gabriel, "Don't you think you are being a bit too generous to these Scots"?"Not really", replied the Lord, "wait 'til you see the neighbours I'm giving them".

Scottish Slang..........??

Act it
Deliberately behaving in an obtuse manner. Trying it on. ie 'Twelve pints isnae enuff tae get ye pished so dinnae act it.'



Aff
Off or from, depending on usage.
ExamplesYer aff yer heid - You're madAh goat it aff the broo - I got it from those nice people at the Employment Exchange

Chib
Noun: A non-projectile weapon. May be blunt or sharp, can include razors, lead pipes, bits of wood with nails hammered in, Stanley knives, etc... . Possibly the main feature that these will have in common is that a chib is something which has been adopted for use as a weapon, possibly with ingenious modifications, rather than something originally designed for that purpose. So a survivalist knife with a 10-inch blade wi the wee jaggy bits (What ur they fur anyway?) is probably not a chib. A crossbow or catapult is similarly not a chib. A Star Trek phaser is not a chib. Probably connected to the word shiv.Prounced TchibA chibbing is an attack from such an implement. Verb: To employ a chib - usually against another human being, but often against a ned. One who has been subjected to attack with a chib is said to have been chibbed. Examples: Hey, did ye see that pigeon chibbin that seagull wi the Irn Bru boattle?Ah'm no sayin it's a rough pub, but if the chucker-oot frisks ye an disnae fun a chib, he gies ye wan!

HISTORY O' THE HAGGIS

Here we introduce the Haggis - a wee fluffy animal native to Scotland.
Haggis are notoriously hard to catch. There is only one sure way of capturing a Haggis and that's by luring it with the sound of a piper playing the bagpipes. Once the Haggis hears the pipes, it is completely hypnotised by the sound and follows the piper. At this point, the piper's accomplice hides nearby, ready to kill the animal with a large stone.
The animal's feet are shorter on one side than they are on the other, this means that when they are trapped they can only run around in circles and are an easy catch to the Haggis Hunter. This aside, their feet deformity makes it easier for them to climb round the Scottish mountains

Haggis hunting is now banned in Scotland although in some areas it is still illegally conducted under the cover of night. If you are staying in the Highlands during the summer and you hear the eerie sound of Bagpipes being played during the night - it's not a ghost - it's more likely to be an illegal haggis hunt.

There's also been some rumours that a local animal testing laboratory in Central Scotland are considering testing cosmetics and toiletry products on live Haggi.
Local animal rights activists are currently planning demonstrations in various cities to protest.

Thankfully the practice of carrying out live Haggis vivisections in primary schools in Scotland has now been completely outlawed to protect the species.

when theres a fire-Jump on a Donkey?

Oh little town of Newcastleton....

In the sleepy Borders village of Newcastleton, Police are currently investigating the theft of a statue of the baby Jesus from the village's nativity set. A police spokesman said that a 17 year old male would be the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal although enquiries into the whereabouts of the baby Jesus were still continuing. It is thought by locals that the statue could be hidden in a local inn or hotel although at the time of the theft, there were no rooms available. Margaret McPherson from the local church added that the thief was probably not a very wise man to carry out such a crime and that his reward would be great if the statue was returned.

Getting Extra from Halifax

Stephanie McLaughlin from Aberdeen was waiting for her monthly bank statement to arrive from the Halifax and sure enough, arrive it did, along with another 75,000 bank statements for other customers which were delivered to her in error! Stephanie complained to HBOS and was told they are currently investigating the error to find out why it happened. HBOS apologised in a statement: "We are treating this matter very seriously and are investigating in full and we will take steps to ensure there is no security issue for customers as a result of this matter". A member of staff from HBOS who wished to remain anonymous, said: "I can't really see what the problem is here, our slogan is we'll always give you Extra!"

Local delivery Bus!

Passengers on the Glasgow to Wishaw Coakley bus service were very surprised when their driver made a detour to deliver a chest of drawers and a cooker to a friend in Motherwell. The passengers on the bus had noticed the furniture tied-up in the space normally reserved for prams and buggies and thought it was a bit strange but were later astounded when the driver actually diverted the route to an address in Motherwell for his home delivery! The director of Coakley buses apologised for the diversion and confirmed that they had used an interpreter to speak to the Polish driver and further had now been given a warning and lost his bonus as a result of the incident. Aparently the driver was unaware that he was not allowed to deliver furniture on his route.
