So, An Un-united Kingdom Awaits

I was amused by the Mark Steel column in the Independent today :

"Maybe Alex salmond's best response, the next time it's claimed that the RBS are threatening to leave, would be to say they're not going to be allowed to stay even if they want to, as they're nothing but a nuisance"


Races that don't have a UKA licence

Wow, didn't realise that there was politics involved. Similar to previous posters I think that it is important to have an accurately measured course. There have been times where I completed a race only to find out that the distance was wrong. Usually caused by errors in setting out the course on the day, annoying but these things happen.The main benefit for me of sites like runbritain is that they show results in age group categories and I can compare myself to a similar peer group. race results that are shown as 40+ don't cut the mustard for me, especially when you are at the top end, in age, of a 10 year age span.

Races that don't have a UKA licence

A lot of the races that I do locally don't have a UKA licence. It is a bit of a pain because most of my pb's never count towards my runbritain ranking. I don't know how much it costs for a licence, but is this a short sighted approach by race organisers? I imagine that a lot of runners now avoid such races. Is it a false economy and does having a licence attract more entries? How many on here avoid non-licensed races?

Do you think that once they move south that those yes voters won't then vote with their feet and go elsewhere, thus denting their allegedly vast balance sheets. The RBS still isn't financially out of the woods just yet and in a worst case scenario they could still go under.

However it won't contain the huge debts run up by UK banks.

Thank god, DFMB, that the decision about independence is being made by people and not by economists. Of course there'll be problems, but this really really is at the moment simply about whether or not the people of Scotland want to rule themselves. Anything else is just window dressing.

totally agree PC, many people are getting too hung up on the debt and use of sterling argument. It isn't the only one part of the debate.
