This episode focuses on Iceland, the extreme nation. A nation of just 300,000 people face the challenges of life in the far north with style and panache.

    Outstanding video, well worth the donation.

  4. Iain says:

    Yet another very interesting programme presented by the bigoted Lesley Riddoch, “bigoted” only on that strange Imperial planet inhabited by Jakey Rowling when she’s got some product to flog.

    O/T – just to lift your spirits as the World Cup game progresses . .. for the night that’s in it and the day tomorrow!

    In Northern ireland it’s bonfire night and the start of the annual riot season

    Don’t forget that one of Iceland’s sons made a home for himself in your country and although he never renounced his Icelandic citizenship, I understand (perhaps wrongly, so do correct me) that he was also proud of his adoptive country. I am referring of course to the late Magnus Magnusson.

    I do understand however that the Scottish nationalist community don’t look as favourably on his daughters.

    It’s good to see people progressing the way that suits them and not what suits any other country , That is what normal countries do.
    That brings us to our situation , because that is far from normal , we are a colony of England, a occupied nation and such are hostage to the whims and needs of our bigger neighbour , it can’t be dressed up that’s exactly what it is .

    o/t – right now in the English parliament, MPs are questioning the cost of the US presidents visit and most are referring to the money allocated to Police Scotland this has really got many of them going, why are these pesky Jocks being automatically reimbursed when our police services are having to apply for funds , I know many of them don’t follow things that involve Scotland but this has given them a excuse to have a go at all Scots ,including the Proud ones .
    It might come as a bit of a surprise to many of them it was the English Tory government that invited The Donald ,the elected Scottish government are not involved, but the Viceroy Fluffy is ,so why should we pay for their arrangements.

  9. Robert Graham says:

    o/t Again, a good start by the new Brexit minister he has managed to bring business to a halt in the House of Commons , by making a statement about the future relationship between the EU and England, this without MPs having read the statement ,even his own side are objecting to this slight of hand shenanigans, The Tory party go from strength to strength one f/k up after another , This lot are running the country, the destination? Who knows .
