Andy Bishop, here is the news for you.

Do not waste your time feeling sorry for me; because I choose to remain in UK.

Its a good place to be; in most areas; most of the time.

Perhaps you have the same idea about France and the rest of mainland Europe ?..so be it.

Live and let live. I do not want your sorrow or sympathy.

hear hear :slight_smile:

But I can’t help but extend sympathy to you for having to endure such a poor set of incapable and low quality current leaders

Going, going, gone !!!

The only mistake in that video is that they pointed the folded corner of the flag upwards. Should have been downwards pointing the route to hell :wink:

Hear, hear !

Hard to believe it was forty years ago. Same difference as 1910. Your post made me reread the Wiki on the programme. I’d forgotten this gem

" One critic of the show was Richard Ingrams, then television reviewer for The Spectator , who wrote a caustic condemning piece on the programme. Cleese got his revenge by naming one of the guests in the second series “Mr. Ingrams”, who is caught in his room with a blow-up doll.[45]

There’s 48% I feel terribly sorry for, dragged out through lies and misinformation. I’d be distraught in their situation. I also feel sorry for those in the 58% who have already come or are coming to the conclusion it was a mistake.

I was listening to the World at One yesterday and they listed the changes people can expect when traveling to or in Europe. I thought if you just turned them around and used them as arguments to join the EU they’d be very compelling. It’s a wish list on freedoms. That “project fear” slogan to minimise the negative impact was sadly very effective. .

I hope they’ll be back someday Colin. The old guard will die out and the youth who voted remain will start negotiations.

Did you see the odious Ian Duncan Smith say on television last night that the UK was now free to “dominate the World”. I don’t know what Kool-aid he and his ERG pals are drinking but it’s a dreadful pity that they, like Jim Jones, are taking so many good people with them.

Yes I saw that John - never a clearer revelation of the level of hubris and self-delusion involved in brexit.

and please don’t forget that he is really just a plain old Smith… The faux double barrelled bit was his own device to make himself look important and landed gentry when he sought to be elected to Parliament :wink:
