    Oh and I would spend Hs2 money on hospitals and schools (but I'm probably wrong again)

    Invasion. Its happened twice what makes you so sure?

    Oracle spoke well and true

    Tuborg fuelled.

    I may be wrong, history isn't my strong point, but were we invaded "twice before"? Or are we now including the Romans?

    I don't really like to insult anyone really... and you may be a "forum legend"... but your posts are utter cobblers, and that would apply whether you've made 1 post on the forum or 10,000

    This is down the pub. Bit of banter, no need to attack people.

    I love weekends on Isle of Aaron and they have so-called island mentality. But its fine.

    Personally I feel certain that had there been a vote for the tunnel or not, it would have been the same result as Brexit.

    Do you also have a problem with my Turkey holiday schedule?

    What's Efes-fuelled?

    The tinternet gave me these choices...

    EFES European Federation of Endocrine Societies
    EFES European Federation of Employee Shareownership
    EFES Education for Environment and Sustainability
    EFES Enhanced-Force Entry Switch
    EFES Elmsdale Fire & Emergency Services

    It can't be the first 2. No. 3 is questionable (for Our Stagger). No. 4... got me sniggering. I'm going for the last one. Well done lad.

    Efes is a popular Turkish lager! Possibly more popular amongst tourists over there, and certainly a popular drink of choice amongst inhabitants of Wetherspoons pubs over here...

    Arrr yes. When our lovely French cousins were selling arm's to Argentina to use against us in the Falklands conflict.

    Yep I remember that.

    History throws up strange things.

    I see for some the tunnel is great and that's ok too.

    Just not my cup of tea.

    The Normans and er.... Guernsey in 1940?

    Just found a Daily Heil article that suggests 73 invasions since 1066!!
