So many threads here are about doom and gloom for my brit freinds as if their way of life is dissapearing.
1/ army storm trooping the country
Scaremongering. Not happening
War games, first time i've heard of them, might be fun, lol
2/Russian plane with nukes buzzing within 20 kms
Misconception. No one's ever said - in any article or news piece - that the plane was armed.
3/ cctv everywhere OMG WTF being watched
Urban myth, 90% of cameras are privately owned
In Cumbria, every town and city centre is CCTV'ed up to the eyeballs, all owned by the police and the council, and they are now on a lot of housing estates, i fear to watch my sick twisted german festish porn these days in case i get caught out, lolz
4/ Crown calling in Her jewels and wants a hand out [sic]
She didn't call in her jewels, but she did ask for some help maintaining palaces that are open to public viewing
She has enough money as it is, why do we need to fund these german imposters? Seriously, I respect the monarchy, but what do they do? really?
5/ All the brits local councils are indebted to Iceland !!! lol really?
Untrue. Some councils held money in Icelandic banks and investments
Didn't know that, and I would like to know why and what is the point, whats wrong with HSBC?
6/ Icelands assest are frozen ROFLMAOCOPTER
Assets were frozen to attempt to recover monies held in Icelandic institutions that were closed down
I second that, true.
get a grip pom's Really is it that bad ?
No its not, despite what some doom mongers, wind up merchants and newspapers would have you believe
Im sorry neformore, but it is bad, not with the army, not with the monarchy, but with the finacial situation in general, the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, yup, although it seems like some of the rich are getting poorer now.
resist fear THINK
Who's afraid and unthinking?
I'm afraid for my son's future, i'm afraid I can't provide for his upbringing, i'm afraid the world that he's gonna grow up into is gonna one of depravity, famine, war and hate.
Again, sorry neformore, i'm not trying to blast your comments, just putting my own forward.
p.s. (lol) i'm sorry for having to put the WOOGLEUK before my comments, dunno how to do it any other way
