Brexit betrayal thread - Part 6

Recommended Posts

I dont apolgise for my sentiments. I apologise if I upset you but not for my feeling.

I am the bastard son from the four corners of my kingdom in equal measure.

I find this from England expresses things well but with no disrespect to my other quarters.

From Henry V and Shakespear.

 

(from Henry V, spoken by King Henry)

 

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'
 
 
The first film from Netflix I say is of sound and solid truth.
 
Good movie.

St George was a Turk and so is Boris. Maybe it’s a good omen?

Amazing how little scrutiny Boris' Brexit agreement is getting? The how and the what Leaving means; the why was asked in 2016. Reminds me of the immigration debate we were never allowed to have while the country was overrun and changed before our eyes.

That speech is from the siege of Harfleur. Another protracted and costly adventure that almost ended in complete disaster....... almost.

Wee Jimmy Whatever she's called said about the Scottish referendum that people had it spelled out better what leave/stay would mean

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/what-staying-in-the-united-kingdom-means-for-scotland/what-staying-in-the-united-kingdom-means-for-scotland

The United Kingdom economy is set to recover faster than every other G7 nation. As two-thirds of Scottish exports go to England, Wales and Northern Ireland ‚Äď more than the rest of the world combined ‚Äď putting up an international border with the rest of the UK would slow growth just as our economy is starting to take off.

As part of the United Kingdom, Scotland benefits from public spending that is around 10% higher than the UK average.

And consider that despite the extra spend they still can't manage the NHS in Scotland according to the interview clip with Andrew Neil

Ive never heard them spell it out that it'll be far better for the English to get rid of the 40/50 odd lefty Jock MP's, pushing English politics to the right and would save the English a fortune.

I wish she was more appealing to the public so more Jocks would vote the way she wants.

And certainly don't read any comments. :Sick1::wanker:

Absolutely bizarre, thank you foreign politician for doing an unspecified thing for our country. Must get a twitter account so I can send messages of thanks to the Chilean education minister and congratulate him on his change of job, he's wonderful. I can only imagine the commenters work in politics or government, normal people DGAF about Donald Tusk or his career.
