"beating heart" of the British people.

#1
Well, thanks to CMD for pointing that out..I was under the impression that the opposite was true...this seems to be the political view of the electorate in a nutshell.

There's a famous seaside place called Blackpool
That's noted for fresh-air and fun
And Mr. and Mrs. Ramsbottom
Went there with young Albert their son
A grand little lad was young Albert
All dressed in his best quite a swell
With a stick with an horses head handle
The finest that Woolworths could sell
They didn't think much to the ocean
The waves were all 'spiddlin' and small
There were no wrecks, and nobody drownded
Fact nothing to laugh at at all
So seeking for further amusement
They paid and went into the zoo
Where they'd lions and tigers and camels
And old ale and sandwiches too
There were one great big lion called Wallace
His nose were all covered with scars
He lay in a somnolent posture
With the side of his face on the bars
Now Albert had heard about lions
How they were ferocious and wild
To see Wallace lying so peaceful
Well it didn't seem right to the child
So straight way the brave little fella
Not showing a morsel of fear
Took his stick with his horses head handle
And pushed it in Wallace's ear
You could see that the lion didn't like it
By giving a kind of a roll
He pulled Albert inside the cage with him
And swallowed the little lad whole
Then Pa who had seen the occurrence
And didn't know what to do next
Said, "Mother! Yon lion's ate Albert."
And Mother said, "Well I am vexed."
Then Mr. and Mrs. Ramsbottom
Quite rightly when all's said and done
Complained to the animal keeper
That the lion had eaten their son
The keeper were quite nice about it
He said, "What a nasty mishap."
"Are you sure that its your boy he's eaten?"
Pa said, "Am I sure, there's his cap."
The manager had to be sent for
He came and he said, "Whats to do!"
Pa said, "Yon lion's ate Albert!"
"And him in his Sunday clothes too."
Then Mother said, "Right's right young fella."
"I think its a shame and a sin."
"For a lion to go and eat Albert."
"And after we'd paid to come in."
The manager wanted no trouble
He took out his purse right away
Saying, "How much to settle the matter?"
And Pa said, "What do you usually pay?"
But Mother had turned a bit awkward
When she thought where her Albert had gone
She said, "No! Someone's got to be summonsed
So that was decided upon.
Then off they went to the Police Station
In front of the magistrate chap
They told him what happened to Albert
And proved it by showing his cap
The magistrate gave his opinion
"That no one was really to blame."
And he said, "That he hoped the Ramsbottoms."
"Would have further sons to their name."
At that Mother got proper blazing
"And thank you sir kindly." said she
"What waste all our lives raising children."
"To feed ruddy lions. Not me!"

Is this in relation to anything, or is it just an outburst of spontaneous rage on your part?
Oh yeah...forgot that bit...CMD reckoned that "the beating heart of the british people wanted to stay in the EU" in an interview today...ITV's daybreak I think.
 
#5
But alas, the rest of the body doesn't.

Democracy?

When there are extremely lucrative post Westminster jobs to be had in the EU trough, you don't get a choice.
After all, what would little Nicky Clegg do after 2015 when he gets his Westminster P45?

"Mit" Like your reminices of the old music hall Monologues, do you do barmitzvahs as well as the old folks homes ;-)
I like this one
He was my brother Sylvest (What's he got?)
He's got a row of forty medals on his chest (Big chest!)
He killed fifty bad men in the West,
He knows no rest, think of a man, hellsfire
Don't push, just shove, plenty of room for you and me
He's got an arm like a leg,
And a punch that could sink a battle ship (Big ship!)
it Takes all the Army and the Navy
To put the wind up Sylvest

He thought he'd take a trip to Italy
He thought that he'd go by sea,
He dived off the harbor at New York
And he swam like a man made of cork
He saw the Lusitania in distress (What'd he do?)
He Put the Lusitania on his chest (Big chest!)
He drank all the water in the sea
Then he walked all the way to Italy.

Welcome to Call Me Dave's Theme of the Week. After a drubbing last week, in which those nasty Tories realised demonising the unemployed made them look a bit like terrible shits again, the PM's Press doctor has hastily written a rescue plan and ordered Mystic Meg to appear at Downing Street, in secret, with a crystal ball. "Yes Prime Minister, no need for a referendum, the beating heart of the British people will stay in Europe", saving the government countless hours of time. Dithering Dave would have been brilliant in Yes Prime Minister.

Not quite right but then you young 'uns are so politically correct/non divisive/racial cognisance aware these days. Why, I bet your sort have even tried to change the name of the dog of that crab fellow.

Ah! Memories of Aldershot Services RFC club house!


One of our players was the only player to be not only allowed but actively encouraged to enter the club house in a tracksuit. He was the most foul mouthed player I've ever met and a dirty bastard to boot. He was also a Major in the RAChD!

He is a liar

If he genuinely believed that he would hold a referendum on europe now.
Just the same as the previous two liars in No.10 he knows full well that the Great British public would vote for an exit in a heartbeat.

Which is why UKIP have done so well in the recent Parliamentary elections. Or not.

Farage is a smug **** who thinks that he holds the balance of power and can hold the Tories to his beck and call because of the existence of the wing Eurosceptic wing of the Tory Party. If CMD starts to pander to him, and them, then the Tories will be in the wilderness for longer than the term of the last Labour Govt.

I have to say I'm anti-EU in that I believe that they have aportioned themselves too much power over Britain's laws and the EU has had a baleful impact on British culture. I would like to see a massive withdrawal of power from the EU back to Parliament. However, given a bald choice of either In or Out I would be forced on balance to vote for In and live with the bits I don't like.

well to be fair the heart is only about 3% of the body but it does make a lot of noise about it

I caught a snippet on Radio 4 last week that said after a debate on Europe (it may have been the Oxford Union but I wouldn't swear to it) that a poll of those taking part on both sides showed an almost unanimous Yes to the EU. We may not like much of what it brings but overall we prefer to stay in.

This whole IN or OUT is a pack of politicians lies…

It's only IN or OUT on the politics, WTO regs mean they can't 'out' us from the EU on trade - exhibit A, B, C & D, USA, China, Korea and Japan. Major EU trading partners, most defo not part of the Brussels menagerie of lies.

QED: Only the troughing politicians who look forward to an extremely well paid post Westminster future have anything to lose by telling Brussels to do one.

I'm of a similar mind but would vote for Out as there are too many bits I don't like.

I wouldn`t be surprised if many of those at a Oxford Union function were intending to become involved in the politics business after leaving school. As a previous poster said the career path these days seems be University,Internship/Aide,MP, then of to a nice cushy number in Brussels. Democracy, don`t make me laugh.

Just remember…

the We must be in the EU claims are being driven by people with such impartial credentials as this fine fellow.


Nick Clegg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A product of the EU machine and a loyal apparachik.
His current surjourn at Westminster is a minor blip in his professional 'European' political career.
I don't have to do anything I don't want to.
