    Brtiah values?

    https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...cs-sajid-javid

    I hope all those asked to agree to such an oath show due respect for british tradition and tell the establishment where to stick it.

    A banker, a Daily Mail reader, a Tory MP and a Polish cleaner are sitting at a table sharing 12 biscuits.

    The banker grabs 11 of them and scoffs the lot.

    The Tory MP leans over to the Daily Mail reader and whispers: 'Watch out! That Polish cleaner is trying to steal your biscuit.

    Re: Brtiah values?

    This is along similar lines.
    A Dutch woman who has lived in the UK for 24 years, and has two children with her British husband, has been told by the Home Office that she should make arrangements to leave the country after she applied for citizenship after the EU referendum.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...after-24-years


    The entire tale is one of an incompetent process designed by a group of civil servants at the Home Office who are not fit for employment anywhere outside a recycling tip.

    The sting in the tail about UK/EU marriage rights sounds like a horrifying piece of drafting error.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Saw Lorf Heseltine on sky news being asked if he had any confidence in theresa Mays government. Not a fan of his but I'm coming round.

    Well I don't see why you guys are so upset. Children have to do that every day in the U.S.

    "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    Heck, ours is so screwed up it even contradicts itself by pledging allegiance to liberty, then stating that the whole country is under one God, no others allowed!

    I think it was in the film Inherit The Wind when the subject was brought up about the US supposed to be legally detaching Religion from Government, but using the evidence of the words "In God We Trust" above the doors of the court as well as on the currency (although I also seem to remember hearing that the words didn't appear on currency until sometime in the 50s.

    That's notes. The phrase "In God We Trust" appeared on coins from 1864.

    Interesting thread, but what is "Brtiah"?

    And what, or who, is a "Lorf"?

    It's an Internet search engine promotion technique. If you google Brtiah or Lorf Heseltine you'll find ForumGarden is the first hit worldwide. Mere cash wouldn't get you even onto the first search page. All the first hit combinations results in ForumGarden punching far above its weight in the international arena, rather like Brtian itself.

    Make fun of my typing all you like I have other redeeming abilities that more then compensate. You know what they say - being good at typing is a sign you think very slowly.
