When, and only when we make a success of it, I agree. It's early days, but I'm sure we'll succeed. I just don't believe in invoking sods law.Given the bile and vitriol aimed at the UK and Brexiteers by the EU and by many Remainers I see every reason to be celebratory of our successes. Our successes should be shouted from the rooftops - loudly and clearly and often.
In that, I agree with both your points.When, and only when we make a success of it, I agree. It's early days, but I'm sure we'll succeed. I just don't believe in invoking sods law.
Also read my post in context. The "success" I was saying we shouldn't be jubilant about, was the death of fellow human beings caused by the incompetence of the EU!!
No, as witnessed by those who were present at the ARRC formation parade in Bielefeld.Can they run faster backwards ??
And boy oh boy is that going to cause them a headache.Many of the French reactors are reaching the end of their life.
Indeed. A few years ago when we were in Nice, again, there was a parade with the Legion doing their slow thing followed by the Italians doing the running thing. Was quite impressive and got a great reception from all.To be fair, the Bersaglieri band playing at the double is quite a feat: must take a lot of puff to play brass instruments on the run for several hundred metres.
That film was taken at the Festa della Repubblica (2 June) in Rome.
The veterans, too, put on a proud showing.
Do our Jogger veterans do a similar march past on relevant occasions?
Those 24hr direct ferry links to the continent will save you a bomb.
Er no, actually.
Using a freight booking agency it would appear that the Rosslare to Dunkirk service is £1,295 each way for a driver and lorry up to 13 metres long.
A flat rate for goods vehicle whatever sailing you choose, and knowing DFDS those prices are not going to go down any time soon.
Add the VAT on and it is £3,108 total for a return journey.
Rosslare to Fishguard or Pembroke is a quarter of that price.
Dover to Calais is around £210 each way depending on timings.
I can see why Aidan Flynn has the hump now.
Not many single owner/operators will be able to swallow those prices.
