This is a hell of a letter.

The GSA conference produced a music video in Vegas that went viral on You Tube. I think we taxpayers need to see what our monies paid for at the VA HR conference in Florida - Show the PATTON tapes!

Take a look at that man Patton ... now take a look at that man Cameron ... One is a born leader, the other is a 21st Century Clusterfuck ... as Clint Eastwood would say!

Do you think they watched lock stock and two smoking barrels before sending that?

Shame our lot can not do the same.

The 'born leader' was a delusional psycho who shouldn't have been given command of a latrine cleaning detail.
The other one is a corporate manager in the 21st century clusterfuck style.
Choose which one you want in charge of nuclear weapons.

Er...You DO realize that the man shown is the actor George C. Scott playing George Patton.. right? :? I have no idea if he is a psycho or not but he did turn down the Academy Award that he was given for playing that role citing political reasons.

Nearly anybody is better at 10 Downing Street than the two-headed monster of Nu-Labor of Blair and Broon - or so I am told. You'll have to figure out that one for yourselves. :p

Yep. We don't confuse actors with Presidents. Unlike ... Er... Reagan?
Quite seriously, I've read a lot of military and political history- and one of the very few of a wide range of pretty unsavoury people who I personally felt like hitting with a pickaxe was Patton. A monster of ego and arrogance.

Thanks for that. We have managed to 'figure' things out for ourselves for the last 2,000 years or so. This includes discovering your country and populating it with the sweepings of European gutters. Then deciding you were a bunch of fat ******* whiners and buzzing off to nick India, Africa, the Caribbean and some islands. Then we consolidated and invented art, culture, rock & roll and being the coolest ******* on the planet.

Currently we are watching Ken (life partner of Barbie) do battle with wassname... the Kenyan one?

It is funny as ****.

But please don't hesitate to come back if you feel there is anything us Brits need to 'figure out for ourselves'.

Do you think they'll take up the recommendation?

(More to the point do you think the VA had a slight pause before posting it and then thought...sod em'..!)
Whats wrong with the V&A their not going to charge to go in it like the science museum are they?

You needn't have bothered; the country wasn't lost we knew where it was all the time. ;-) So just take your big canoes back across the water and take your European sweepings with you. We have enough on our plate as it is with the Spanish attempting to big it up down south. We don't want to get ugly.

Tecumseh.jpg

Tecumseh grew up in the Ohio Country during the American Revolutionary War and the Northwest Indian War, where he was constantly exposed to warfare.[SUP][2][/SUP] With Americans continuing to encroach on Indian territory after the British ceded the Ohio Valley to the new United States in 1783, the Shawnee moved farther northwest. In 1808, they settled Prophetstown in present-day Indiana. With a vision of establishing an independent American Indian nation east of the Mississippi under British protection, Tecumseh worked to recruit additional tribes to the confederacy from the southern United States.[SUP][2][/SUP]
During the War of 1812, Tecumseh's confederacy allied with the British in The Canadas (the collective name for the colonies of Upper Canada and Lower Canada), and helped in the capture of Fort Detroit. American forces killed Tecumseh in the Battle of the Thames, in October 1813. His confederation fell apart, the British deserted their Indian allies at the peace conference that ended the War of 1812, the dream of an independent Indian state in the Midwest vanished, and American settlers took possession of all the territory south of the Great Lakes, driving the Indians west or into reservations.

Hey Dukey old boy, forgive me for being familiar but I love your view of world affairs. Get a position with the UN immediately.

Yes, but you had not invented the wheel in 2,000 years, had you? The ******* wheel. It is round, and it goes round and round. The wheel. No wonder you were a pushover to invade.

after the British ceded the Ohio Valley to the new United States in 1783


We sold you down the river. It was a long time ago and we were busy nicking India. Adjust.

Tecumseh's confederacy allied with the British


Jesus. You people just do not learn, do you? I bet we sold the stupid **** down the river, didn't we?

the British deserted their Indian allies


Bollocks. We sat down to make a brew and they fucked off into the woods. And people wonder why we do not trust Americans?

Your Grace, as a popular arrse pundit I only wish it was you who were giving us the analysis and commentary on the septic prez elections.
Paxman would chew the contenders up if they had the guts to stand up to real questions rather than cuttin'n'runnin' at anything like a question of substance.
So your grilling them on the arrse barbie would be as good and a damned sight more enlightening than these faux interviews which they then have to have a flack walk their inane answers immediately back.
Getting a history lesson on Tecumseh was amusing though.

A pox on all their blankets,
makes an apposite electioneering bumper sticker.

*Sigh* Those were the days. ;-) I call dibs on the English slag. :p (Unless it's [ugh] the slugster)



We Indians were quite puzzled by how you English fight. Les Francais were just as bad - giving quarter when a fellow is beaten, marching all your soldiers out of the fort so the commanders can shake hands and then exchange places... we didn't see the sense in that at all. Tomahawk the lot we say. :-D

And you wonder why things like Wounded Knee and the Chevington Raid happened.
