Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

Because we cling on to past glories while the rest of the world moves on.

I’ve worked with German lads  for years - none of us guys were alive when that happened.

 

I’m not embarrassed one bit about what the British soldiers did in the war - I’m proud of it - but I’d be excruciatingly embarrassed about us flying bombers over a football field 70 years later.

 

“Morning Christoph - good game last night - oh did you see that reminder that we beat you in the war?”

 

come on.

So why do you want to have that re-enacted when we play a German football team 70 years later?

 
maybe we could all watch the game in Anderson shelters in our garden on black n white TVs aswell? Make it proper authentic.

He doesn’t want anything of the sort. He’s just a bit immature and likes to think he’s being controversial.

 

I’m hoping that’s the case. If he really believed the rubbish that he posts, he needs some help.

It's just banter in the build up to the match. 

 

Just for completeness  a Lancaster bomber and Spitfires are often used to mark important anniversaries in relation to the second World War.  A Lancaster bomber flew of Ladybower Reservoir to mark the 75th anniversary of the Dambsters raid.

Yeah, that's obvious. But not over football matches when when we're playing the germans.

Can’t remember what year it was but I think it was a World Cup. Carling black label did an ad where the German sentry on the dam turned into a goalie and saved all the bombs. Made me chuckle.

The England versus Germany is the best football match in order to engage in pre match banter. From and Englishman's perspective the pre match banter is more enjoyable than most of the matches because Germany normally win and have the last laugh. A German comedian was on the television this morning and said the England versus Germany game was more important for the English because Germany have more important matches afterwards.

 

Will you be supporting England or Germany tomorrow?

They were the good old days before political correctness was invented.  The newspapers also had some amusing front page headlines before the matches.

England of course. I've already prepared my matchsticks to keep my eyes open.

Let's hope it doesn't go to penalties. The winners should make the final because it looks to be an easier route than the other side of the draw.

EU agrees to delay Brexit meat checks in Northern Ireland for three months.

Although...

Quote

The request was granted after the UK agreed not to change domestic law on meat products for the next three months.

So effectively the UK has agreed to keep to EU standards during that time.

 

It sounds like it's been put in place to delay having to implement a solution until the NI marching season is over.

I couldn’t find the omelette mega thread, so I’ll drop this in here. Mostly because of the claim that Brexit happened over less.

 

The guardian is reporting a fierce and deep seated disagreement in Spain, over the inclusion of onions in tortilla de patatas.

Maybe they should have a proper referendum

While in other news, the Belgians are taking legal action against the French for siting an enormous wind farm off the coast of Belgium, in French territorial waters but in Belgium airspace, which as the wind turbines will be 300 metres in height, could cause potential problems.  Additionally, the siting of the wind farm may also disrupt the traditional shipping route from Belgium to the UK, including the Oostende route, as well as damaging environmentally sensitive sand banks.

There are apparent EU directives that state that neighbouring member states affected by projects such as this one, must be consulted first.  The French have just ignored the relevant directives & are pressing on regardless. 

 

What!  The French doing as they like & ignoring the EU rules.  Well I never. 

 

EU brotherly love, eh?

If only we (I am ignoring NI) were still in the EU then we could help them sort out their little disagreements. Not of course that we would do this by providing wise and sagacious counsel but rather our presence would serve to remind them what it's like to deal with a real bunch of spaff weasels.
