Hehe yeah right. I know we accuse the yanks of being a bit dim but even Bushie and pals can't be dumb enough to trust the Frogs over us.

A Tory government at any price eh?
Err more like a stupid piece of journalism which we saw through in the first paragraph. Hence the giggling at the beginning of our posts.

Not entirely sure how you got the Tory bit in there matey. But then again maybe in your parallel universe the story reads differently.

Just like your ravings it's bollox.

How is this scaremongering? If Harry Spam want's to snuggle up to Jacqies Le Frog then that's fine by me. If anything this is a pro-labour article suggesting that Broon will be rather less of a lickspittle to the Shaved Chimp than TCB was, hence Spam francophilia.

Can they become any more desperate? Yeah, they probably could.

I'm trying desperately not to bite over things like this but it's getting harder by the day. FFS we have lost more troops in Iraq than all the other members of the Coalition combined (except the US, of course) and are still there after many, many others have left - Spain, Italy and The Netherlands spring to mind. And Basra isn't half as bad as it's sometimes painted - I'd rather live there than Baghdad, for example. Not even mentioning Afghanistan. If this is the real attitude of some across the pond, they are ungrateful, dishonourable tossers at best.

Even the most noble fellow will occasionally choose to get into bed with a prostitute, than go for a beer with a true mate.

Not that I'm suggesting that Septics are nobles.

The Septics are welcome to the Frogs as long as they cut them out of urup and drag them over their side of the pond.

No doubt Washington is trying to a counter to Germany's increasing ambition, but whether they'll cozy to Sarkozy (I'm a poet and I know it) is a different matter. If they start calling it a 'special' relationship, the Frogs'll be running for cover and ramping up their LLAD.

Nice touch Smartascarrots. This site is often short of quality poetry. Any rhymes for Brown, Browne or Ainsworth?

As was once stated by a Chancellor of Germany once upon a time, "A Europe without Britain is like a body without a head".

To my minds eye, statements like, "It's time for Britain to take a back seat", are to be construed in two ways, one that we've done our bit for now, and two that others would like the opportunity to exert their stances.

Regardless of the actors in play, be they politicians or statesmen, France and Germany dug themselves into a very deep hole with their transatlantic relations, something which they are very keen to dig themselves out of as of late. If they use a supposedly "down & out, dejected spirit of Britain" to stand on while they go about this, then hey what's new? That typifies the relationship we have with the continent on so many levels.

But as always, the recognition will tend to dawn that you can't in fact slip a sheet of paper between USA, Canada, Australia & Britain on some intrinsically constitutional based agendas. Sure we might like to operate under vestiges of independence, but the roots and core which is there (and you don't need to scratch very deep to find it) often suggests our European partners are often in awe, though are loath to ever admit it.

The op-ed of the Telegraph article is therefore just the usual tripe from a disillusioned Eurolefty, and given that context, it's worth is to be measured in terms of shite paper available.
