MISSING CAT, South Dell, Ness, Isle of Lewis by Penny (Member 10186040) on 14-Jul-2006
Lally is an all white male cat, with blue eyes. He is deaf and cannot be called if he can't see you. He has thick, but not long, white fur and a stumpy tail.

He is missing in the South Dell area of Ness, but may be in neighbouring villages.

Please call 07859876406 if you see him. A reward is offered for his return.

    Most pubs are shut on Sunday, but a few open their doors for the hardened drinkers.

flat for rent in stornoway by smartie (Member 10184407) on 12-May-2006
Hi
Going to buy a flat in Stornoway for renting. Want to know what flats rent for there and where do folk advertise their property. Would anyone be interested in renting a 1 bedroom new build?
The net is rubbish for any information.
Cheers

    i'm moving to Stornoway in march and i'm desperately looking for a cheap (preferably under £500 a month) 1 bedroomed flat or house - as long as it's in or within walking distance of Stornoway, i'm not really bothered about anything apart from having a roof over my head and being able to afford it, is there still a flat going?

Rape Crisis Centre threatened legal action by Penny Campbell (Member 10077131) on 28-Jul-2004
My previous message warning people, especially men, of the forthcoming rape crisis centre in Stornoway, has unfortunately had to be removed by the managers. Rape Crisis Scotland threatened State51 with legal action should they fail to comply. I think that goes a long way to supporting what I said about them. If I was lying, they wouldn't feel so threatened would they? My deepest sympathy to al... more >>   
  • Re: Rape Crisis Centre threatened legal action by whitesettlersclub (Member 10027001) on 29-Jul-2004
    While I sympathise with those unjusty accused of a crime. I do feel that there has been a bias towards men in the past.
    When a man can claim consent for acts such as urinating on his victim and this can be upheld in court... (as on tv doc)as a possibility and the man can walk free... things certainly need to be looked at again.
    There is of course a danger in things swinging to far the other way... more >>

  • Re: Rape Crisis Centre threatened legal action by Penny Campbell (Member 10077131) on 3-Aug-2004
    I am in no way belittling the devastating effects of rape, but the situation has become damaging to those falsely accused and those who are genuine victims. Those who for malicious reasons cry rape are causing great damage to the claims made by genuine victims. So in my mind there are no winners.

    The pendulum has swung too far the other way.

  • Re: Rape Crisis Centre threatened legal action by whitesettlersclub (Member 10027001) on 3-Aug-2004
    I do think there is a big divide between the Police response to a child being raped and an adult being raped.

    Children it seems are believed years after the event and cases are taken to court. Full grown women are often not believed even after presenting forensic evidence.

    I do think that if as a society we do not respond apropriately to an adult being raped; then we may as well stop pretend... more >>

  • Re: Rape Crisis Centre threatened legal action by Adrian Davies (Member 10000789) on 6-Jun-2006
    Don't really want to get involved in this, because it is such an "emotionally charged" subject. But, has it ever occurred to anyone that among the ten commandments, the first three are focussed entirely on the worship of G-d, and the remaining seven do not concern themselves in any way with rape?????

Western Isles 'Satanic Abuse' Case, yet another Orkney by Penny Campbell (Member 10077131) on 4-Jul-2004
