Re: Deviated Septum and smell

I have a bad deviated septum in my nose and really can't smell for shit. I mean I can smell a little bit but my face pretty much has to be in something to smell it. I can barely even smell my own farts anymore unless they are extra rotten and that is depressing. Am thinking I should perhaps get thi...

Can't remember Noel Reid playing 13 for Leinster. It's prob happened but can't remember seeing it. Will be a test for his improved defence... We have 2 great defensive 13s in ROL and Ringrose, but no harm to see if Noel can do a job there. Ball in hand, it should suit him. ROL isn't a great defensi...

Re: Catalan Referendum / Independence

Massive demonstrations going on. The PP government, which itself has a questionable mandate to take such a hard line, given their small majority, is driving people into the pro independence side. In huge numbers. It's crazy. There needs to be a vote of no confidence in the PP and somebody elected w...

Re: Catalan Referendum / Independence

Seems a poor show that the Catalan government and Madrid can't come to some agreement for holding a referendum. if Whitehall and the Scots can manage it, anything ought to be possible...

That's not the army, nor Guardia Civil. And I don't see any violence whatsoever. From what I read on this thread it's like people was eager to see riots in the streets.

They're not. Central government can call a referendum. Regional governments of autonomous communities however are on much thinner legal ice if they call one.

If Catalonia wants to be independent, history shouldn't matter. They've got their culture, their language and little by little an invisible frontier has been built between them and the rest of Spain. They don't watch the same TV shows, don't read the same newspapers, don't vote the same political p...

At the end of the day what independentists catalans are looking for is more money. They just want a larger slice of the budget. If you give them more money separatism is dead. The rest is fake news.
