Latest post of the previous page:

What puzzles me is the title "Royal Highness". Why is it not "Royal Height"?

I have yet to find a republican who is remotely enthusiastic about anyone they would like to be president. Who should it be? Prescott?

A presidency is a transient position, unlike a monarchy. So we can enjoy Prescott wading into barracking spectators before finding somebody else in a few years time. How about Michael Foot, or the guy in the white suit, or Richard Dawkins, or ..

May I shyly ask you a favour:
Would you please hasten to suggest Tony Blair as the UK President in order to avoid the danger to have him elected as the EU President?
If you do you will render a service to the whole Union :innocence: :nod: :notworthy:

He looks quite smart in a suit, though.

You just want Berlusconi as EU President, don't you? Admit it.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Not just me Alan H, I can assure you that a great number of Italians would be extremely eager to send Silvio up there .....where less damage would be surely done; he is very good in telling jokes however, especially if encircled by girls :party:

The Belgian PM, Herman van Rompuy, has got the job of President of the European Council, with Baroness Catherine Ashton as European Commissioner for Trade. He's a Catholic.

I am told that Mr. Van Rompuy is a pragmatist however and he is a good economist. If his behaviour is composed of, say:
50% Pragmatism (very much needed in the EU building)
40% Keen economist (to mate with the ECB)
10% Catholic (better if not doing well with the Vatican)
then we might be happy :popcorn:

Currently living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Fairly large town. High desert biome.
I'd move elsewhere if it were convenient and I could speak the language, as this country seems to be deteriorating rapidly.

Welcome back Cole! I thought you had disappeared; I've read your blog and wish you a good time in Minsk. I humbly bend to the amount of snow there ....more than here on the Alps! :innocence:

ok. birdcrazy I have seen this post which answers my query about your location. My saying Morayshire for my location might not mean much to you. It is in North East Scotland just East of Inverness, on the Moray Firth.

Born in Flint, Michigan (many moons ago) and grew up in the beautiful little village of Holly. It's about 70 miles north of Detroit.

I've lived in England for 10 years, this is now my home. I live in the midlands, Lincolnshire, nice place to make my new home. I still have my strong American accent though, guess some things never change...lol
peace
koz ;)
