Got to agree with you muttley. It seems that the Tories want the Scots to be British but that they don't want them to be able to influence British politics, which is bloody odd at best, and at worst it shows why the scots don't trust the English govt.
I'm not wholly in agreement with all SNP policies, but there is a feeling that we don't matter to most politicians unless it suits them. Like just about everyone in the country that's not in the South East get ignored until election time.
Nicola Sturgeon has said* that she will work to improve politics for the whole of the UK, because Scotland have voted to stay in the union. One thing the referendum did for Scotland was to get lots more people engaged in politics, voting and caring about how the country was run. That can't be a bad thing.
I guess it's a difficult position for the SNP to be in - having got the majority in the Scottish Parliament, and getting the referendum, they then lost the independence vote which is seen as their raison d'etre. Should they just have thrown in the towel then? They will need to be very careful if they do any deals with any party in Westminster, given the backlash against the LibDems (especially the Chief Secretary to the Treasury...). They could easily find themselves out on their ear in the Scottish Parliament if they are seen to be too cozy with Labour (if they get in).
And if they do survive in Scotland, and there's been an unwillingness by the UK government (whoever that may be) to work with them, that may give them a perceived mandate for another referendum.
There could be a whole shitload of repercussions whatever the outcome.
*but she is a politician, so who knows what the reality will be if it comes to the SNP having any power in Westminster.
Not stinging stories per se, but I did once take a large swig from a can of Fanta which I had left out on a warm day. I counted 7 wasp body parts in the sink when I spat it out, but I'm not sure how many whole wasps that related to.
Another time I was hit full on by a bumble bee when doing just under 40mph on my bike. Thank heavens for sunglasses.......................
You'll probably find that the speed comes back fairly quickly if you start running regularly again. It's muscle memory/conditioning in your legs that's missing, rather than aerobic fitness, which you probably have in spadeloads with all that rowing.
Run 3 - 4 times a week for 3 weeks, then try again. You'll see a big difference.
