I've got a ZTE - bought it as a back up in case I break my main phone - I used it for a couple of months to get used to it / check it worked for me.

Seems fine for the basics, sat nav was a bit flaky but I don't use my phone for that much. Otherwise perfectly fine for voice, sms, and a bit of browsing.

The Barnett formula has NOTHING to do with oil revenue.

Always makes me laugh how Scots believe if they got all the oil revenue they'd be rich - despite the economic facts.

Fuck off and try it then!

If they really believed it the greedy gits would have voted themselves out of the UK no doubt - truth is they know better.

I had hoped that once they'd had their referendum they'd shut up their whining - fat chance.

My point is that the anecdotal example of a guy who had to fight for custody of his kids is pretty well trumped by the statistical example of 1500 women killed by their husbands/boyfriends each year.

What are you talking about? Trumped? What is the connection - how does women getting killed by their husbands relate to child custody. Are these not unrelated issues?

Yes both "PC loser" and "SJW" are ad hominem but they're insults not arguments. An ad hominem attack is a response to a person based on them rather than the content of their argument. This was not a response to his argument, please note he's the one that started throwing insults around.

Your claim of "Tu Quoque" is also wrong, I objected to him telling everybody who disagreed with him not not say anything "ever", but never suggested in my response that he should remain silent.

On a personal note: the "no you are!" defence? Really? I haven't seen heard that since I was six. What a pitiful attempt at rational argument.

Human beings were created by water to transport it uphill.
