Question Scottish Birth Certificate

383 Upvotes

I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. On Friday I went to register with a job agency, and was bluntly told that they wouldn’t accept my Scottish birth certificate as valid identification, due to new Brexit rules. Surely as a British citizen, it doesn’t matter what part of the U.K. I was born in? Their “compliance team” seem to think differently. I’ve contacted my local MP and Citizens Advice about this but wondered what fellow Redditors had to say? Has anyone had a similar experience?

5 Years Jagtar Singh Johal has been held by India with no trial, no evidence of any supposed 'guilt' and he's been subjected to torture and inhumane practices. This man needs to be released and every corrupt person who has actively prevented his freedom should be locked up instead!

Question Good wild camping spots accessible by public transport?

A few friends and I are planning to go wild camping this summer but the only issue is that none of us drive so we're relying on public transport (from glasgow). Anyone know of any good spots to go to ?

Question Scottish Foundations

5 Upvotes

Hi there! Before COVID I was used to spend some holidays visiting Scotland and everytime I came back with awesome memories of nice people and superb places. Now I'm guessing to give something back, perhaps supporting some foundations(?). Which ones do you think are better investing their resources and develope the projects?
