For some time now you have thought it amusing to regularly change the country in your avatar. Ho ho, that will get 'em niggled. Not at all, it is seen by all as quite childish really. But your choice of Afghanistan this week does deserve some comment. Perhaps you might like to read through the full list below.

British fatalities

You choose to live in Britain, and have done so for many years, and as such you believe it gives you the right to regularly lampoon and denigrate our politicians. But what it manifestly does not do, is give you the right to insult our armed forces who have died in the service of their country.

I cannot imagine a better thread title to comment upon this, and I strongly suggest that you have a re-think.


You sad Welshman! Get a life! check Afghanistan out & you will find many allied military service personnel crunching various projects.

I stronlg suggest you think before you post & if nothing valid to say on the threads concerned, refrain from posting.

Sorry I didn't realise you were in the armed forces serving in Afghanistan.

Ha Ha well that applies to an awful lot of post in this section!!

When someone deliberately tries to hide who they are it shows that the next words out of their mouth will be a lie or their next actions dishonest and that they know they are going to lie or be dishonest or both.

& who might that be? Becoming quite the physchologist are we? How is it that something quite serious like the world's economy tanking & yet get no replies, yet a simple flag showing up besides a person's avatar, rankles so much that it invites displeasure?

Are those that comment on that flag changing really that immature or do they have an ulterior motive in commenting on it?

@ Mr Vine...yet you condescend to post on that thread? How charming of you. No comments from you regarding Europe then?

I have my daily chuckle at some of the comments in these threads. But I no longer need to join in as my sole purpose here has been accomplished.

could be the source has been considered and given the weight it should be given and the answer is that no reply is the correct answer.

Looks like the promise made of an In/Out referendum after the next election was all lies....

PM says that running a country is like Tantric Sex

"This is a tantric approach to policy-making. It will be even better when it does eventually come..."

Unfortunately, we can guarantee that Santa comes, even if it is only once a year, unlike this referendum!

Quentin Letts is just about the most limp wristed political commentator there is, but I did like his comment regarding yesterdays PMQ's.

Harriet Harman, beside them, showed little more sign of life than a Land Rover battery on a cold morning.

Well exactly :-) But I have the ultimate putdown for the PM, and he has my full permission to use it.

"In the midst of the economic crisis, France's Socialists are denying reality. The minister of industrial renewal is calling for nationalization of some industries, while the president shies away from necessary structural reforms. Business leaders fear the clock has been turned back 30 years."

French in Denial

Eurozone agree bank oversight deal

"Merkel on Thursday morning explicitly thanked German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble for "pushing through Germany's core demands." Er, excuse me Frau Corleone, shouldn't that say "Europe's"?

A cold heart for Europe

It seems that Der Spiegel has slipped up in it's reporting.......

"She currently holds the fate of Europe in her hands. If the euro is rescued, Merkel will get most of the credit, and if it falls apart, she will be forced to shoulder the blame.
No other German chancellor has had as much power on the European continent as Merkel. And yet, ironically enough, none of Merkel's predecessors were as dispassionate about the European Union as the woman currently governing from the Chancellery."

There was one more powerful than her..... AH

Quite right, and the groups of Federalists are beginning to be reported as moving towards the UK in an associate partnership with the EU. I think this is in anticipation of a new Integrationist Treaty during 2014. At least that is what today's Times is reporting in a very good article.

If this means moving back to the Common Market we voted to stay in during 1975, them I say good and look forwards to seeing that happen.

But I still contend that Edward Heath, when he took us in, knew the long term plan so, therefore lied to us. I hope he is spinning in his grave at a speed enough to cause him to burst in to flame.

I wasn't in the UK when Edward Heath was PM except for one quick trip. During the 3 day week, my mum said there were no candles and very few torch batteries to be found in the shops.

So I drove home, on leave, with 10,000 candles and 5,000 'D' size batteries and made a killing.
