New National Lottery Game.

New National Lottery Game.

New National Lottery Game started on the 10th of October 2015 adding an extra 10 numbers proves their last move was a dissaster that we claimed.

Now its almost impossible to win, it was hard enough trying to get 6 out of 49 now you need 6 out of 59 so the odds of getting the correct 6 is now much worse.

It’s obvious as it was when they last changed the lotto that increasing its cost by !00% and the first prize by 250% all other winning tickets was going to suffer so they thought to themselves increase the number of balls will decrease the number of winning tickets making us more profits!

What they should have done was to go back to the old ways and £1 per play, people are going to notice its much harder to get 3 out of 59 instead of 49 so it stands to reason this is one daft and crazy idea that once again will fail to generate more cash or even more players.

Euro-millions is now the only lottery worth its entry fee its lowest prize of two correct numbers out of 50 is £3 yet to get two from the New National Lottery Game out of 59 winners get a free lucky dip in the next game, WOW!

Government great train robbery!




Remember, not only did you and I contribute to our Pension, our employer did, too. It totalled 15% of your income before taxes.

If you averaged only £15 000 over your working life, that’s close to £220,500. Read that again. Did you see anywhere that the Government paid in one single penny?

We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to ensure that you and I would have a
retirement pension from the money we put in, it was not money that the Government had any right to spend elsewhere.

Now they’ve started to call the money we paid in an
‘entitlement’ when we reach the age to take it back.

If you calculate the future invested value of £2500 per year
(yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5%
interest (that’s less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows from overseas), after 49 years of working you’d have

If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive £26,787.60 per
year and it would last better than 30 years (that means until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

If you bought an annuity with the money and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of £1976.40 per month.



My foot !! IT’S MY MONEY!! I paid IN cash for my pension.
Just because they borrowed the money to spend on other things, that doesn’t make my pension some kind of charity or handout!!

Remember MP’s benefits? —

free healthcare,

outrageous retirement packages,

67 days paid holidays,

three weeks paid holidays,

unlimited paid sick days.

Now that really should be called welfare entitlements, yet they have the nerve to call my O A P retirement payments entitlements?
We’re “broke” and the government can’t help our own OAPs, our ex-service personnel, our orphans or our homeless

Yet in the past few years we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, Turkey, India, Pakistan, etc., etc., etc. Literally, BILLIONS of Pounds !!!

But they can’t help our own citizens!

Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed old age pension have to beg social services to receive additional aid, while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions of £££ tons of food to foreign countries!

They call the old age pension an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.

Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
It was supposed to be in a securely locked box, not to be used as part of the Government’s general funds.

We watch what they do next with OUR MONEY!




The SNP has today highlighted a new report showing how the UK Government’s welfare cuts are trapping people in in-work poverty – more than cancelling out any benefit from George Osborne’s living wage ‘con-trick’.

A report by the Resolution Foundation has found that George Osborne’s policy on the minimum wage “cannot guarantee a basic standard of living or compensate for the £12bn of welfare cuts that were announced alongside it” – leaving 6.5 million people in the UK in in-work poverty.

Figures from the IFS in July showed that the 63 per cent of children living in poverty come from working households – a figure which has grown from 54 per cent when the Tories took office.

Commenting, SNP MSP Joan McAlpine said:

“This new, expert report is even further evidence of the appalling impact the Tory austerity agenda is having on working people in Scotland and across the UK – and proves once and for all why we need to take a new and different approach.

“This Tory government should be utterly ashamed by its appalling record of pushing people even further into poverty – as their slavish devotion to austerity trumps any commitment to supporting those in need.

“And with this record, it’s even more astonishing that Labour under Jeremy Corbyn have decided to back George Osborne’s fiscal plans – proving once and for all that it’s only the SNP who can be trusted to stand up to Tory cuts.

“Working people who are struggling to make ends meet need and deserve a real boost to their pay packets – not a con trick on the minimum wage from a Tory chancellor while he callously cuts tax credits and other social protection leaving people worse off.

“This demonstrates exactly why the people of Scotland can no longer afford major decisions over the economy and social security to be made by the likes of George Osborne and Iain Duncan Smith.

“It’s time for these powers to be transferred to Scotland  – allowing us to take real action to truly tackle poverty, and support low-income families – rather than continuing on the UK Government’s course, which is trapping too many hard-working people in poverty.”

Argos Online Customer Chat Room one of the best retail customer help-lines in the UK.

Argos Online Customer Chat Rooms.

Argos Online Customer Chat Rooms.

At International Scotland the usual order of the day is to slag off most UK retailers/and car dealers for offering the worst consumer experinces in Europe but today we are breaking traditions and singing the praises of Argos Online Customer Chat Room and its agents for a job well done.

I have used and tested this service many times and its yet to fail in the delivery of excellent customer services that even puts John Lewis to shame.

Yesterday I had to use the services of Argos very own Katy who managed my return of a faulty philips 58 inch 4k TV and exchange it for a brand new PHILIPS 55PUT6400 Android OS all done and dusted in just 12 minutes, fantastic service by any standards and should be copied by all nationwide.


The 55PUH6400 has to be one of the most exciting TV releases in 2015 and Argos has these in Stock…

This 55put6400 has no 3D or Sat TV Tuners that was on the 6800 series but adds Pixel plus, proper Job 4K with HDMI 2.0 and HVEC as standard and ofcourse Google’s excellent New OS only to be found in 2015 philips and Sony TV’s.

Google has stated all new platforms will be updated for the next 3-5 years at least making them the best by 4K TV deal in the UK.

Argos sells the 55 inch 55PUH6400 for only £750

John Lewis will also sell these UHD Philips TV acording to TA/Philips Europe at Berlin show 2015.

All these UHD 4K TV’s come with excellent 2 years onsite warranties and the bonus from argos of free delivery within 5 days any where in the UK.

TV Price Matching Fixed might not be a surprise to some UK shoppers or even to most shoppers in the rest of the world but do you know how they do it?

John Lewis Stores used to be the best on the high street at price matching just about everything but now they don’t have to.

Before the high street fixed the market shoppers only had to pick a consumer item get the model number, stick it into a seach engine and instantly get the best supplier price on the day including delivery costs for a like for like comparison!

Most people cant do that any more because of less and less high street competition manufacturers are making the same models but supplying electronic stores with different part and model numbers so shoppers cant get the best deal and thus supplied locally.

Argos has some high end Samsung TV’s that is only exclusive to them at a very attractive pricing but if other suppliers has the same goods and spec’s shoppers can’t ask for a Price Match because it will have a different part or model numbers.

Is it any wonder then TV Price Matching is becoming a thing of the past which only benefits the retailers and must be anti-competitive and subject to review.

To do your own research, pick a any TV on line, copy and paste the model number into any search engine and see how many retailers has the same model?

On the popular models most retailers have the same ones but not surprising is the fact they are all very similar in price therefore go big gains in local price matching offers.

They dont call this island “Rip Off Britain” for nothing.

Why Do They Hate New Labour Leader

Why Do They Hate New Labour Leader.

Why Do They Hate New Labour Leader, the simply reason is they cant control him or his supporters.

The days of political parties being in charge of the country are but distant dreams, the real power and game changers are basically your faceless civil servants who tells ministers what to do or what they can get away with.

The reason they hate the new labour leader is he wont ask the establishment for advice and that means he cant be controlled like the two Davids and as MP’s are controlled so to are the press and media.

People all over the UK is screaming for change, if anti austerity is bad for your health how was it possible for the SNP to gain so many seats at the last election simply because they offered its people hope!

Pre May general election who offered HOPE in the rest of the UK, answer no-one so the status quo was assured and labour simply surrendered to the will of the Torries.

If Austerity only works in the favour of the UK’s top 5% who represents the interests of everyone else in England and Wales?

The New Labour Leader won 60% of the labour party vote, wake up time for establishment and the reason all evorts to damage him before he starts dismantling all the plans to make the rich even richer.

Warning for labour MP’s who refuse to budge, labour activists will get rid of you the same way they ignored your calls for steady as we go!

People want hope, voting for the same with no choices meant conservatives were home runners, given a straight choice between even harder austerity and fairness for all who do you think will win then?

That was the reason why they hate the new labour leader!


Normal Service Has Been Resumed

Normal Service Has Been Resumed

Normal Service Has Been Resumed – International Scotland is back to its normal service after four weeks due to holidays and going to places with no internet connections was pure bliss.

So much stuff to report on, its seems child abuse claims are going into overdrive and labour activists telling labour members of parliment their voices can no longer be ignored proves our point labour MPs were indeed a rightwing mob.

SNP has no choice but to go indy part 2 as new,new part 2 labour spells dissaster for another 58 SNP seats in 5 years time they might never get another chance again.

Plus we have more consumer woes to report on.

Normal Service Has indeed Been Resumed.



Labour is a right wing party as demonstrated by the 3 out of the four candidates claiming to their supporter’s to not pick a second preference on their ballot papers.

Jeromy will get more votes in a national election not because he’s a leftie but because he’s different and offers hope to the people who have felt betrayed by the Tories.

The current shower of right wing labour party members (Blair-rights) are living in the dark ages and are anything but progressive.

You only have to see how they voted for more austerity after this years general election, they voted for Tory welfare cuts, WHAT?

This shows they have lost their way and shows the SNP are the only real opposition to the Tory party mark one as the labour party is the Tory mark 2 in disguise.

Jeromy has one thing in his favour he has never-ever changed his views on these political matters and labour activists are fed-up being treated like children and ignored after successive party conferences where their views were completely ignored!

To get elected its about being different, not the same as the other lot  and this is why the other three has not a hope in hell of winning!

If you cant convince labour party members your the one then you know your views are not of those that do your ground work.

The SNP would win most northern English seats if there was a vote tomorrow or even in 5 years time because they care and offer a real difference, so why do these has-beens think their way is best.

Jeromy also offers the people of Scotland greater hope and will give Scottish Labour more support than any other labour leader.

The current labour party is to close to the current Tory government that people don’t have a real choice in the ballot booths a Jeromy win will send shivers down the Tory spines as it would be a true protest vote in the making.

How To Fix Windows 10 VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE error.


Bad news you cant, good news there is one working work around, it only works when lid is closed and opened again and it means it stays on constantly when closed.

We think this is down to the intel onboard graphics not being fully teseted as its only around 5% of all PC’s that has this newer onboard chip but you would think the beta testers would know better.

First go to start menu bottom far left of your desktop

> next in the box search for windows type;

> Power Options,

> Chose what closing lid does,

> Change all values to do nothing,

> Save changes.

One other bug has also been reported over last 24 hours it seems rumours were perhaps true bit torrent software is crashing on updated windows 7 and 8 versions to 10 MS has stated in the past they hate piracy even though bit torrent is used for other means if true; Way to Go MS nothing like killing your own products stone dead.

Windows 10 Update Crashes On PC Resume

Windows 10 Update Crashes On PC Resume.

Windows 10 Update Crashes On PC Resume – Windows 10 updates on three different tested PC manufacturers including ASUS, SONY and Toshiba laptops cant handle MS Windows 10 update.

Yes its true the update loads OK but as soon as you close the lid it cant resume you either get a blue screen of death or you get a blank screen and the only solution is to cold boot your PC.

Windows users were promised there would be no bugs in this release.

How is it possible to release a product and within 3 days there was no less than 3 critical updates that users have no choice but allow as there is no facility to now stop updates taking place or even removing them!

Windows 10 offers nothing of note to non-touch screen users its basically a windows 7 and 8 put together job with a proper start menu, on three laptops tested so far its also more power hungry which is really strange, so this is a fair and balanced report it is more user friendly for the novice user or first time windows 8 buyer.

Microsoft has a bad reputation for releasing new platforms without proper testing in the past and it looks like this is no different users updating from VERSIONS 7 or 8 wont be able to go backwards as there is no facility and if the upgrade fails will have no choice but to either format there Hard-drive or wait for a fix but with so many potential manufacturers affected this may be next to impossible to achieve.

Microsoft will need to make windows 10 disks available to current licence holders or be accused of profiteering by offering updates that were not fully tested before being released and this programming error on the Windows 10 Update Crashing PC Resume will damage its sales big time.

Will take photos and post from my ASUS G750 so you can see the various error codes so you can compare,

Windows 10 users reading this warning should post their error codes here and perhaps help Microsoft sort this huge embarrassment.
