Was speaking to someone earlier tonight who said they were told by a councillor that the whole thing was an intentional marketing ploy to sell more tickets!!!

I have no doubt that my source was told that--he has absolutely no vested interest. Apparently the council is losing a lot of money in the theatre and is desperate.

Not doubting your source Jock, but to give credence to what he was told is crediting the feck on Newtownabbey Council with wayyyyyy too much smarts imo. Like I said, a good cover story, but basically, ballix.

Ballix or made up bullshit, adds up to the same thing, not credible unless you are immensely gullible.

So much for a free & fair decision by the people of Scotland, every turd in Westminster now making every possible move to put the frighteners on the Scottish population.

Scotland is more socialist than England; Scotland is pro-Europe, England anti-Europe; Scotland is anti-Nuke, England pro and even keeps said weapons in Scotland. Why would Scotland want to stay in the Union? Also surprised no-one has mentioned that if Scotland votes to stay in the Union, England will vote them out of Europe in 2017!
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Scottish independence hangs on the soccer world cup. If Engerland were to win a YES vote is a certainty :lol:

The biggest reason for a "Yes" vote in the Scottish referendum is the way the "No" campaign are carrying on!

The biggest reason is that they are letting uneducated people vote who have only recently watched Braveheart

The only logical decision is a no vote.

Whilst you may be right Russ, what sticks in my craw is how "Call me Dave" is such a democrat, offers a free & fair vote then sets about trying to scare the financial bejasus clean out of the tattie-hoaking haggis-munchers.

This is not my idea of democracy, it you are a democrat you state a cogent argument, you do not resort to bullying & scaremongering. Whilst I had no firm feelings yin way or t'other, I'd love to see the Scots wave their baws at Dave & say, "byeeeeee ya backtilfront"

Then wee feckin' Gideon*** frae no.11 chuntering on about the pun stirling. Oh no Jock you cannae ha' a pun', it's uuur British pun'. Completely ignoring the fact that both having a shared currency is not only practical but desirable given the amount of cross-border traffic & trade. The is not one reason he has given that is insurmountable - simple politicking.

A flood on all their houses. Scots wha hae. >bud
