Whether or not he served with distinction in an irrelevance; buffoon with stoat round his neck now springs to mind.

LOL... Thatcher would have stood up and clapped.



But instead.

Finks,

His remarks were 'undiplomatic' and he gets shafted.

Had he been more 'PC' then he would have been accused of using weasily words befitting of your 'stoat'.

Poor fellow is on to a loser either way but I prefer his 'undiplomatic' approach, much nearer the stark truth in this case.

Who sups with the devil must use a long spoon. The pix of him parading outside 10 Downing St begging people to vote for Gordon Brown finished him for me, ex-1SL or not. Not that he will lose sleep over that.

Fcuk all wrong with Belgium ; I had a night of wild savage and rampant sex in Antwerp. And I didn't finish up in Rose Cottage!!
 
No but i was present when he became 1SL, but i agree with him.

If your 'present' meant 'serving at the time' then your length of service should add some value to your RR Posts.


I'm intrigued and at some loss to wonder whyever not; particularly as much seems to 'grind your gears' and is often a 'joke'.


Re your Signature - 'Time waited for your 2nd Op'.

Is that 2nd Op. to remove the remainder of your foot from your mouth, perchance? They do seem to have left rather a lot remaining after your first operation.



Back on Topic - I agreed with him too, at my earlier post, but it now concerns me that we have something in common...

He spent his time in the mob when we had a navy, now the poor deluded fool doesnt realise we are a second tier power, and only retain our place at the security council due to 4 bombers.

Our permanent seat on the UN Security Council has nothing to do with our nuclear power status. After all, four of the five permanent members were still years away from such status when we got our seats. We have, along with the US something else in common. Can you tell what it is yet?

As for Admiral West's remarks, I haven't thought them worthy of analysis. Cromagnus on the otherhand................

Seadog IMO if we succumb to the great european misadventure France and ourselves will lose our seats to the United States of Europe.
