Olympic table - British Empire style

#3
In our lifetime I can see the tally getting reduced when Team GB becomes Team England, Team Wales and Team Scotland. Team Ireland will cover the whole island of Ireland but with British funding withdrawn it will not even be able to afford drugs for their gee-gees! :wink:

How many of our former colonies excelled at sport when we still ran them?

If you add up the number of medals Europe has won, it would be logical to say that when Team EU enters the Olympics, we will be the best at everything.

Some of them where pretty good at Cricket :D
Ah, but they only started to be good enough to beat you once they were independent. They've routinely thrashed you senseless ever since.

Care to explain how we are not European since we are part of Europe?
Geographical location does not mean you have to join in.

Are Jocks English? Or are the English Welsh?

All part of the same geographical bit of rock but distinct peoples.

Any way if the Israelis can be included in the European song contest then it makes fcuk all difference where you are.

I think he means that although we are European both geographically and politically, culturally we are not and never have been – speaking in generalities, of course.

Though I suspect that you knew that's what he meant....
