Hmmm, £2000 per head? Nice little earner for the Snivel Serpents

Said in jest over 14 months ago: -

Yep, definitely time for a military coup...

Blow up the Euro Tunnel
Royal Navy in charge of all harbours
RAF in charge of all airports
No more regional police services but a national police force & paramilitary at that

Just wonder how many will want to enter illegally then?

Nurse! He's out of bed again!

Just wondering how long before that becomes a reality?

yep, didn't do them much good though :-)

Anderson & Finn are the 1st England bowlers since that great series in 81 to take 6 wickets in a match.

Thanks for pointing out these threads Sirius. Looks like you've done a lot of hard work here over the years. I'll probably binge-read all of 'em someday soon, when I have the chance.

Thanks, however, I only started the ball rolling, the contributions from others is what made these threads.

If you do start on them, start from Episode 1, you'll come across a post from Nick - people often mention hindsight, in this case, no, it was foresight. How was that achieved? Quite easily, look & learn, something those at the top have failed to do for decades.

I'm linking to Nick's post as it is awesome: - 1177196

& I'll quote something highly relevant today from it...

"President Charles de Gaulle used this worry as his reason for blocking the UK's entry into the Common Market back in the 60's. For he felt that if the UK came in then the Americans would gain influence through their close relationship with the UK. de Gaulle was no fool, so he possibly had genuine reasons in fearing American over-influence in a new post war developing Europe. But this fear could also have been a fundamental mistake on his part. For he stated that, upon the Common Market being formed, "We must not let this formation lead us into building a European State for to do this will lead to eventual failure."

After hearing today's news, immigrants waiting at Calais rather than riot, all started singing...

Aussies currently 245-8. Could this be another 4 day win for England?

LOL - 265 all out...

...they think it's all over...

...it will be soon...

...6 hours for England to score 121 for a 3 day win :-)

With Anderson out injured, Finn doing well 6-79.

I would think the pub is a far less appropriate place to show me your evidence about the mental state of a German politician. Unless of course your evidence requires alcohol to seem true ;)

Yeah, let me translate what you just said. Essentially you're saying that discussions with a keyboard are more prolific than an actual face-to-face conversation (and you are finishing off that statement with a silly beer joke).

I beg to differ.

Will this help?

No? Then how about this :-)

Get it right Del-boy...

...it's what the country needs, NOT what you want!

"When asked if there were any circumstances under which he would recommend people to vote 'no' in the referendum Mr Cameron said he ruled "nothing out" if he didn't get the changes he wanted."

"Now the negotiation is under way, technical talks are happening now in Brussels."

Technical talks? What's technical about these words?

In/Out
Yes/No

Much prefer my versions...

EFU

Wow, that was close for the Aussies, a 2 day defeat.

Aussies 24 runs ahead with only 3 wickets remaining. Looks like 2-1 in the series for England :-)

I stopped using WMC since I started using XBMC (now Kodi), so that bypasses that problem.

The smell of bacon and eggs?
But seriously there are so many refugees risking their Lifes to leave their home countries...

Muslims can't touch pork, so that excuse can't be used :-)

How many more doing just that now that Air Travel is an everyday occurrence compared to years ago?

Probably being doing that for some time but the airport closure caught them on the hop.

Just like the shipping/cruise lines - profits before safety!

Well my solution is a simple one but the PC Brigadiers won't accept it.

You want to live here? Okay, sign this (5 year enlistment in the army), survive that & we'll give you a passport.

Bad news though, when you finish your training, your 1st posting is Afghanistan.
