Thinks about this, takes deep breath, types anyway. Mrs B doesn't like me telling people this since I sound like a nutter. For years I have concientiously turned up for every election and spoiled my ballot paper. I feel I can't complain about the lieing, thieving bastards if I don't participate but ...

Just a reminder that the "quote" may not be verbatim (sorry, I haven't been able to check) but it is fairly close.

Sidney Poitier plays the reporter, Richard Widmark the naval officer.

Not Dr Stranglelove. And not a comedy. But was made within a year of Dr Strangelove.

The wikipedia entry for United Kingdom looks pretty good. I didn't read past the first couple of paragraphs though. Great Britain is (generally) Scotland, England and Wales. The UK is GB plus Northern Ireland. The various offshore islands, Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey etc. are Crown dependencies ou...

Note to self, never believe a word Enzo says . . As to a lack of swords to finish the job, a recent incident where the Household Cavalry lost two officers in an RPG attack reminded me of this from one of our 19th century excursions into Afghanistan. Do you like Kipling? I don't know, I've never kipp...

Apologies Enzo, I'm losing my ability to tell who is serious and who isn't. I can't even blame it on the time of day since it is mid(ish)-morning here. :oops:

Iran and Iraq are mortal enemies and have been for some time now. Trying to be buddies with both would make you look duplicitous. In contrast to our being buddies with the Israelis and with everyone else in the region. Which makes the US look duplicitous in exactly the same way, and taints the Saud...

A couple of points: I know I'm resurrecting an old thread simply to be pedantic, but I only just got here and I'm trying to catch up. :D The Anglican Church is the worldwide church, the Church of England is its branch in England. I'm sure it is possible to be a member of the former and not the latte...

Re: Looking Back Now...

World Peace was missed. After 911 George Bush had the rare opportunity of uniting the world against one single cause: To crush that psychotic cult, Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda is not a cult by any definition; it is a loose coalition of terrorists. It is also arguable if they are psychotic as an organisation...

My point was exactly that, that Isrealis do this with their dead, to no great reaction.

Boy, you're a tough crowd!

Ok, might not be verbatim but close enough.

Character 1: What happens if they fire one?
Character 2: If they fire one, we fire one.
Voice off: One fired sir.

Warning: Picture of dead child being paraded around for the camera. Can you imagine the worlds reaction if we had done this on 911? Or if Israel did this with their dead? This is sick. http://eureferendum.blogspot.com/2006/07/milking-it.html Pictures of Israeli dead, both adults and children, are s...

Yep, nothing dumber than living in a country where you can't get a drink until you're 21. :D
