  1. The article certainly raises some interesting points but it's not unbiased. Certain media outlets will always have an agenda, it's been that was for years. Do you think there is a problem with Islamophobia in the UK? Do you think the Muslim community could to more to out terrorists/terrorist sympathisers? What about the Rotherham pedophile grooming gangs? These mens families and wives still stood by them proclaiming their innocence claiming that the white women were sluts and went along with it. These young girls were ages 12-16. How would you feel if there were thousands of Muslims in Perth, women in Burkas in the Perth streets, Muslim men going around in cars shouting at young girls? In no way do I think all Muslims are terrorists and want to impose Sharia Law in the UK but there are some who's sole aim it to make us change to suit them and implement Sharia Law. Look at the likes of Saudi, women aren't allowed to drive over there and it's only been spoken of that they may be allowed to drive as of next summer. Having lived in the middle east and many majority Muslim countries I can confidently state that their principles and values are not the same as ours, they still follow laws from centuries ago. • Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death. • Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death. • Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death • A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death • A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death. • A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death. • A woman or girl who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s). • Testimonies of 4 male witnesses are required to prove rape of a female. • A woman or girl who alleges rape without producing 4 male witnesses is guilty of adultery. • A woman or girl found guilty of adultery is punishable by death • A male convicted of rape can have his conviction dismissed by marrying his victim. • Muslim men have sexual rights to any woman/girl not wearing the Hijab • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old • Girls' clitoris should be cut • A man can beat his wife for insubordination • A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a wife needs her husband's consent to divorce. • A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it. • A woman's testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man's. • A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits • A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval). • A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative. • Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah Do I hate Muslims, NO. Am I glad that I live in Perth where there are very few, yes.
  2. Dare I ask, but when you worked in the Middle East and Africa did you learn the language, immerse yourself into the culture and respect the culture by not drinking etc or did you stick with other ex pats etc? I learned the basics in every country I've been worked, it goes a long way with your colleagues and you will generally get the best of of them along with a little respect. No there weren't any locals who could have done my job, I was there on each occasion in a supervisor role and based on my skills/experience I was deemed the best person for the job. I did train people to fill my position in some countries but at the end of the day British skilled workers are chosen because they are generally more reliable and have credible education/degrees etc. The amount of Indians/Filipinos I have interviewed who have claimed on their CV that they are capable of XYZ and cannot answer the most basic of questions because their certification is not credible and the lie on their CV. Playing devils advocate obviously, but how many times are the ones complaining about folk coming here and not learning English etc, are those who go abroad and do not learn the language and get involved in the local cultures. I can't abide this, it's akin to the people who go overseas on holiday and sit in the nags head pub every night chatting with marge and dave then have their sunday roast. I've traveled and worked in many different countries, each place I've been I've made a conscious effort to learn the language (albeit very little) embrace the culture and food. Apart from Nigeria, the food there is awful. I've never actually stayed there as a resident, always on a rotation basis. Gender and Sexual Orientation equality, abortion etc are all areas that conservative Christians will argue against in the same way as conservative muslims. Gay people are still executed and flogged in many Muslim countries, not quite the same as arguing against it. Although many Christians are hypocrites. To me, being British or Scottish, isn't about fish and chips, bulldogs, union flags and all that, its about helping your neighbour, respecting others, being good citizens and treating others as you would want to be treated yourself. I agree with you 100% on this. Nice to see a rational response provoking a sensible debate.
  3. Auto correct on my phone strikes. How mature of you though, no actual retort of any substance so you pick me up on a typo.
  4. Where have I mentioned facebook anywhere on this thread? You're debating skill are terrible so terrible that you need to make stuff up.
  5. These are quotes from police officers, nice spin attempt by yourself though. Have I stated that me, my family or friends have been forced to adopt any muslim ideas? See my previous analogy. Just because it's not directly affecting me or my family it doesn't mean it's not happening. Why bother replying if you're ignoring any counter argument. It seems you have your own ideas and I have my own.
  6. There are no go area for british white people in certain area in England, what about the Trojan horse schools in England where they tried to force out English/white teachers and were preaching the Quran in classes? Is this acceptable because you can't see it or that it doesn't affect you? One serving officer in west London said: “Islamification has and is occurring. You have to have extra vigilance in certain parts when you are working." Speaking to Breitbart he added: “When I was a teenage lad in Burnley there were no go white areas. This is the case still nationally, including London where you have to have extra vigilance in certain parts when you are working.” Another officer with Lancashire police said that officers have to “contact local community leaders to get their permission” before they are allowed to patrol in Muslim areas of Preston. And a policeman posted in Yorkshire said police top brass were so afraid of potential terrorist attacks he had been ordered not to wear police uniform in his own patrol car.
  7. I was at the station when the bus came, there may have been a slight surge, but nothing that could be described as a charge. This is subjective, what has the point in charging/surging for the bus and banging on the windows? They had sticks holding banners in their hands at the time. You seem unwilling to categorise the SDL as nazis In no way am I categorising the SDL as Nazis, I didn't see any Nazi salutes or swastikas. calling a group of SDL activists nazis is not on the same planet as calling all muslims isis activists. Again this is subjective, I am against Muslims trying to force their way of life, sharia law and general treatment of woman/gays onto us (this is happening in some cities/towns. Does that make me a Nazi? The antifas protesters are student activists from Dundee, masks and and smoke bombs are as violent as they get. Again this is subjective, I saw them trying to break the police lines to get to people, do you think they were going to give people wee cuddle when/if they got to them?
  8. "you and your ilk" What are you implying by this? I've already stated that I'm not an SDL follower. I have no issues with any muslims I've met. How has your life in, say, the last six months specifically - specifically - been affected by this mysterious "growing Muslim influence"? Just because it hasn't directly affected me, doesn't mean it isn't happening it isn't an issue. Nobody in my family has died of Cancer, does that mean cancer doesn't exist or that I shouldn't acknowledge it? I've spent years working in the middle east and African (muslim) countries and have found most of them to be everyday normal people in their own country. You can't deny that there are a percentage of muslims in the UK hell bent on changing the British way of life and forcing their ideas onto us.
  9. There wasn't 800 protesters, plenty of onlookers who were there to watch but not 800 protesters. The protesters DID charge the bus at the train station, I was standing right next to where it happened. The smoke bomb was thrown and the protesters were rounded up by police at which point they started abusing anyone in the area calling them nazis. The counter protest were calling the SDL protest Nazi scum, how is this acceptable? This is no different from people branding all muslims ISIS supporters and suicide bombers.
  10. No it doesn't but I did state earlier that there's no doubt the SDL used this as an excuse to protest. There were people from perth within their ranks.
  11. Every group has its fair share of oddballs, it's like saying all old firm fans are racist bigots (which they aren't). Not all of the SDL look like as you've described. I"m sure there are people within their ranks who are genuinely concerned the the growing muslim influence within the the UK and the muslim grooming gangs etc. I certainly wouldn't want to bring my daughter up in the likes of Luton etc.
  12. You're presuming, not really great for a debate is it.
  13. There was one arrest on the day and it was someone who was part of the counter protest. I saw people from the counter protest, charge at a bus (near the strain station) charging police lines (in south street), throwing smoke bombs (again in south street) and abusing locals who were just down to watch. So yes both sides were as bad as each other, in fact a case could be made that the counter protest were worse. I'm not an SDL/EDL follower but they have distanced themselves from Nazi salutes etc and seem to oppose the muslim take over in the UK (as they put it), they also protest against the muslim grooming gangs in the UK. There was a gentleman of colour in their ranks so there certainly aren't "white supremacists" as you put it. They used the building of the mosque as a crutch for their protest no doubt about that but they were a lot more restrained and less confrontational than I expected. Certainly not the Nazis they have been labelled.
  14. I watched the whole protest (both sides) and didn't see any hitler salutes. Both sides of the protest were as bad as each other with their hangers on who hijacked the protest with their own agendas. There were 5 objections to the mosque out of the handful or residents that were informed of the plans. I know someone who lives near the proposed site who wasn't informed. The mosque has a wider impact that just the immediate (adjacent) neighbours imo and more of the residents should have been informed.
  15. If there were flats built there instead then the company buidling the flats would be bound by regulations to provide additional parking (see below). Why should a place of worship be any different? I honestly can't see the mosque being made for public use, what else do you think it can be used for? Muslims do not allow footwear in their place of worship. There are parking issues at the current mosque as worshipers park at Aldi car park and walk up for prayers. It will be bedlam at the proposed new site and I sympathise with the locals in the area who want to speak out but will no doubt be labelled racists. The counter protest the other week looked more like a political rally with lots of separate entities waving their own flags/banners with their own agendas. A small percentage of the counter protest were from perth. Type of Accomodation Dwelling size (bedrooms) Total no. of parking spaces required per dwelling (unassigned spaces) Total no. of parking spaces required per dwelling (assigned spaces)* Apartments Bedsit and 1 bed 1.25 1.5 Apartments 2 ed 1.5 1.75 Apartments 3 bed 1.75 2.0 Terrace houses 1 and 2 bed 1.5 1.75 Terrace houses 3 bed 1.75 2.0
  16. I notice that these are cheaper than buying directly from the brewery, even in Tesco/Asda it's cheaper than buying directly from Inveralmond brewery.
  17. I have to say I'm surprised at that, I've not tasted sunburst but tried and loved Lia Fail, Ossian and Thrappledouser.
  18. Saw this advetised last week, i'll not make it due to work commitments but i'm dropping in to get a keg of Ossian and Lia Fail for over the Christmas period.

    Christmas Plans

    I love Christmas, the whole time of year is braw. I look forward to seeing my kids excited and looking forward to Santa coming, we go to Edinburgh for a day trip each year, its really nice at the market and Christmas wonderland. I love having lots of different food in the house and get some nice beer in, i'll be getting some from the Inveralmond brewery as they do some cracking ales. It's a good time to catch up with friends who work away and are usually home visiting family at that time of year. People are generally in a better mood at this time of year, I hope everyone has a great Christmas.
  20. Can't comment on the food in Inverness but we have some great restaurants in Perth.
  21. I'd say Stirling for shopping and Inverness for the attraction of more business.
  22. I agree with ejksjfc, the retail park is looking much better than recent years. For a while I thought it was going to be done away with there were so many empty premises and rhe car park was terrible. Granted the stores aren't great but it's an improvement, Perth really needs to attract more businesses and move forward as it's been left behind by so many similar sized cities.
  23. I know this topic has probably been done to death but that building is ugly. It needs to be levelled and have a city square, the restaurants and cafes would reap the benefits and there would be space for farmers market, Christmas market, food market, entertainment etc. It would also open up the view of the St Johns church which is a lovely building.

    If you're referring to the Nigerian girls who were kidnapped, I was i Nigeria at the time and many of my colleagues said that it was massively over estimated the amount who were kidnapped. That said, when in Nigeria I hear of whole villages that are wiped out by Boko Haram and the west hears nothing of it. I suspect that the reason we don't hear about there bombings etc from other countries as it's more the norm there, not saying that makes it ok but when a bomb goes off in Europe of USA then it's big news as it rarely happens. Much like in the USA when a shooting happens it's not news as it happens so often but if it were to happen in the UK it's front page news.

    I'm not sure if it's pressure groups but he said that there were parents asking for muslim holidays off school rather than the christmas holiday and that they were meaking life very difficult in schools. I couldn't tell you what parts of luton are no go areas in Luton, i'm just going by what a colleague told me and I have no reason to think he is lying. Just a quick google and I found this, very compelling. Note this is not a racist site....

LutonLuton, where one quarter of the residents are Muslim, is situated 30 miles (50 km) north of London. Luton has a total population of 200,000, including some 50,000 Muslims. Most are Pakistanis (30,000) or Bangladeshis (13,000), according to recent census data. Many of the Muslims in Luton have settled in Bury Park, a well-known Muslim enclave where the native British population has all but disappeared. Muslims in Bury Park have been accused of "ethnic cleansing" for harassing elderly non-Muslims to the point that many have been forced to move away. BBC reports on "white flight" in Luton can be viewed here and here (links to original videos here and here). Bury Park, a "town within a town" that abuts the Luton town center, is known for high unemployment, drug trafficking and domestic violence. Bury Park is also known for its nearly two dozen mosques and madrassas that cater to at least ten different Muslim groups or sects, including: Hizb ut-Tahrir, Salafism, Sufism, Deobandism and Barelvism. The largest mosque in Bury Park is the Luton Central Mosque, where loudspeakers attached to a minaret call Muslims to prayer. Bury Park is home to at least two dozen of the more than 600 British jihadists who are fighting in Syria and Iraq. A BBC report on Muslim women from Luton who want to join the conflict in Syria can be found here. e.
