It's ok mate...I'll not report you for sarcasm, insults, off topic ranting or a personal point of view. You know why? Because it makes absolutely no fekin difference at all... I doubt that Barnier or Boris will be looking in here to pick up a few tips.
We can scream hysterically all we want... but only I will get to say, I told you so.
Fleet Operational Sea Training now - they've undergone a bit of reorganisation and rebranding recently.Flag Office Sea Training, it’s who puts ships and crews through their paces to make sure they are fit to go to sea, to deploy and fight.
It’s a necessary balls ache.
My brother is very, very anti Macron and socialist to the core*. Does not stop him joining Macron though in his condemnation of Brexit as France are really seeing the cost now, and there will be a cost to the EU, which they don't like.Interesting . In our neck of the woods - or, rather, just over the border, a rural area - they are very much on the side of Brexit, anti-Macron and the 75-bubble in general. Marine is a poster girl.
The General Secretary of Rassemblement National, Nicholas Bay, an MEP, had this to say in the Express:
"The media caste was unanimous, and the political class was not far from it.
“Since then, without having been disturbed by the result, most of the French media have continued their fake news: they persist in portraying Brexit as a disaster and the United Kingdom as solely responsible for the situation.
“Turning his attention to the UK's decision to quit the EU, Mr Bay added: "I think France is in a very special situation vis-a-vis Brexit.
"First of all, the French media propaganda during the British referendum was appalling.
"We were predicting the apocalypse in the event of a Brexit victory, we announced the 'no' as a sure thing.
"The European Commission has never been criticised.“
Naturally, there will be many who plead the ‘Keeler Defence’ to that.
@Brotherton Lad OK, My Bad, just googles FOST and see it has indeed been changed to Fleet Operations in May this year; whereas Flag Officer is now COMFOST. A downgrading of the post from Flag Rank to Commodore.Now that is just typical of you. Your mistake has been pointed out and you cant bring yourself to acknowledge it. You just belittle yourself - which is a shame.
Pay attention BL's friend the Chief Swiss Admiral of the Grand Fleet told him. Or you know, Google.OK, My Bad, just googles FOST and see it has indeed been changed to Fleet Operations in May this year; whereas Flag Officer is now COMFOST. A downgrading of the post from Flag Rank to Commodore.
My sincere apologies.
I doubt that you hold that sort of responsibility to our O/Cdts.I'll be checking on their welfare in an hour or two.
Have a nice day.
I prefer the idea of a Northern Economic Community, with the four UK nations plus Norway, Portugal, Sweden and Denmark. Possibly adding Holland and Germany but never France, former Eastern Bloc countries or Club Med.If you really want blue sky thinking about what’s next for the EU, how about but Eirexit being a possibility?
In a scenario where UK devolution approaches an end state of an independent Scotland and Wales, wouldn’t a “British Economic Community” of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland be a logical conclusion?
Sorry you cannot use the term “handbags” anymore.Sandbags to some, Handbags to others
