Now that the French and Germans own just about all of our water,power and god know what else and we are now appearing to ask them to help build our power stations as we don't have the expertise, can we find a leader that can say get stuffed until you put troops in Affiestan and help us. Why should our service people get killed whilst these grow fat on the backs of it? Why can we not build power stations and why do we need the French to help build aircraft carriers? I despair the weakness of this country,it's not as if the French,Germans,Spanich etc let others buy into their national important services. I hope Blair,Major and Brown end up where they deserve.Hopeless and inept does not cover what they have done to this country,in my opinion!
