Falkirk stadium gets green light

Falkirk have received a safety certificate for their new North Stand, which means they now have a stadium that will allow promotion this season……
………He hoped that the local authority would also be able to overcome the problem of receiving permission to build on the side of the ground that comes within the BP oil refinery blast zone.
Knew I had read about “Blast Zones” somewhere.

Mr Charles (big ands)* Green may have thought so too. :mrgreen:
*(why is it I always have a mental picture of Kenny Everett saying “lets bomb Russia”?

I know you’ve been criticised for your continued postings re the ‘Bear Land Experts’ but I, for one, find them most amusing and enlightening.
I second that emotion. The information ecobhoy provides, proves conclusively that the media are not fit for purpose, and blogs like TSFM are vital.
“asking the questions the media won’t ask”.

Ian – I exposed their petition scam back in December 2012 The House of Commons picked it up and investigated and changed their procedures.
Eco well played. 😀
Just think, all that effort from December 2012 to November 2013 and going nowhere fast.
One theory, held by the psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg, showed that
“cheating is governed by our moral development: the more advanced we are, the less likely we are to cheat. According to Kohlberg, we pass through six stages as we grow older, during which we become progressively less egotistical and more practiced at reasoning through the problems of morality. With each step in development, we become less likely to cheat. Cheating, in other words, is the result of a lack of moral fortitude and education.”
Stage 1 and stuck ❓

From RM, The Bears Den.
E-petition. get Parliament to debate HMRC’s Leaks. 22/11/2012
May be old news now, but this failed due to lack of signatures 41,292.
A few teddies upset that 100,000 not reached. 👿
“Must have been because Gov. Don’t want a scandal etc etc”.

Not really, read the information supplied after EDIT: below.

Mailinator is a free online disposable email address as described below but if used in the manner described, any confirmation email sent back will disappear straight into the recipients Junk email marked as SPAM in the header, ok can’t top Mr Custard. 😀 Or be deleted by spam filter.
There is also a complaint that there had been no response but the link below shows that HRMC responded when the number of signatures reached 10.000! ❓
TBD:- Closing 22/11/2013 11:20
can admin pin this?
There has been a few of these petitions flying around but this is the official one submitted to HM Government & endorsed by Chris Graham on Twitter.
This petition must reach 100,000 signatures before the end date to be debated in parliment.
Can we have this pinned in the Bears Den – be sure to share on Facebook, Twittter, you know the score.
EDIT: provides an instant, disposable email. When filling you the petition if you register the email as something like “” – then visit it will take you to that disposable inbox where you can access the confirmation email.
Therefore anyone who many not have an email account, or put off by having to confirm the emails – this offers a quick and handy solution. I’m also unsure if the T&C’s of the e-petition allows you ‘sign’ on behalf of someone else, such as a friend or family member, but if it does… Provided you know their address & postcode this would allow you to easily sign on behalf of someone else without needing access to their email inbox.
