I see how to stop the whole world domination thing. Start an argument about tea and it will be stopped cold in its tracks.


That's how we lost the empire in the first place.

It was the milk marketing board and there propaghanda combined with the British sugar industry moving away from cane and into beet.

It's a little known but fascinating nugget of UK history.

And here I thought all you did in the UK was sit around bragging about your corgis and arguing over what is the best way to drink tea.


You think we get animated over the correct procedure to drink tea?

Wait until 'The Sauce War' starts;

Bacon Sarnie - Brown Sauce, only HP, Chop or Daddies are acceptable.
Sausage Sarnie - Red can be used but Brown is also acceptable.

Pork Pies - Brown or Red or is English Mustard, (must be Colman's), acceptable?
Or is Mustard merely a condiment and not allowed to be considered as suitable for discussion in The Sauce Wars?

Hmmmm See I like a sauceless Bacon Sarnie nowadays, used to be Red sauce but now, just butter.
Sausage Sarnie yes red is best but a full English or Fry -Up then it HAS to be Brown sauce.

Um.... Sauce.... On PORK PIES??? What the **** man? LOL

Gotta be without and if the pork pie ain't got jelly in it then no way.

You fool, the pork pie is only ever to be accompanied by a good dollop of Branston pickle. End of conversation.

Bacon butties I will agree brown and only brown.

Red sauce is what children and illeterate's use as they do not know any better.

Colemans mustard has it's place as long as it is made from powder. If you ever get through a whole tin of this you have a problem.

On the subject of Colemans mustard powder the heat of the resulting mustard can be adjusted by the temperature of the water used in the making.

Brown sauce in a Bacon sandwhich? Milk in first? I am surrounded by uncouth barbarians!

You're all from "the North", aren't you?

I can go with the sauceless sandwhich - as long as the bacon is done so the rind is a nice brown and crunchy...

Yeah mate, gotta be a crunchy rind but the bacon still has to be juicy and not dried out.
It's a delicate procedure.

Scotland better be allowed in, ha ha. Thought with that in mind perhaps we should maybe have a British Issues forum, after all Britain is the name of the location we live, The UK is more the description of what we are at the moment, if we split up it would save renaming the forum and arguing over who was and wasn't allowed to remain in the forum, ha ha

I second the motion.

This little island has a LOT of crazy on it.


Well it has us or a start!

As long as it is not seen as some sort of seperatist issue I see it as a valid proposal.

As long as no one suggests that Scotland should not be a allowed to be in it.

Maybe another devisive question but are we talking back or streaky when it comes to bacon?

Smoked or unsmoked?

It's no wonder we argue with the choices we have eh?

I'm a grilled and crispy smoked streaky man myself but then I have a little bit of class about me unlike the plebs that go for that other stuff...

Sorry Gents, a small amount of Brown Sauce is a must for Pork Pies.
And occasionally a portion of Colman's mustard - sorry, never used the powder, I'll have to hunt it out and try some.
But never too much to overpower the Pork Pie.

And as a slight aside;
Taylor's Pork Pies reign supreme!

blup, I can appreciate and savour a bacon butty without any sauce if there is no suitable Brown Sauce available - but never, ever, under no circumstances should red sauce be placed on a bacon butty.
I also like bacon and egg butties without sauce....but the yolk absolutely must be runny.

And all bacon must be well done.

Britain is just the larger island, so includes the Porridge munchers, the sheep fanatics and the civilised paortion of the island known as England. The UK includes the Northern Irish - I'll leave that down to others as to whether they should be allowed in

What is the point of a well done fried egg with no runny yolk? Really what is the purpose?

I will let your other silly comments regarding food slide because of this reason but will keep an eye on you so you are not out of the woods yet.

Well that depends... What sauce do you put on your Bacon or Sausage Sarnie?
And do you eat your Pork Pie Dry??

Ah, we have a consensus! An egg done with a hard yolk should go nowhere except the bin...
