Re: Wales Vs Scotland 6N Match Fred

Scotland showing their usual lack of game management and composure so almost hand the game to a poor Welsh side. There is something wrong in Scottish rugby. Clubs and the national team seem to lack the smarts to make the right decisions and to get the critical decisions right. Or they identify the ...

Re: SNP waste yet more millions of taxpayers money

Actually seems it's even worse. The shipyard they awarded the contract for the unwanted ships to - their only contract - had to be bailed out to the tune of £57m along the way due to trades union disputes. It then went bust owing the taxpayer £50m. So the SNP nationalised it, and the cost of the sh...
