    Ah, we agree on something. Greek mothers are a force of nature. I'm surprised there haven't been horror films about them.

    The Germans though are only too happy to speak English. Especially if you at least make an effort to speak German.

    My German is coming along, but often I have to lapse into English and nobody seems to mind.

    I love that film.

    “Is this the Potato Farm?”

    “Yes, I am Emil Potato?”

    „The revolution will inevitably awaken in the British working class the deepest passions which have been diverted along artificial channels with the aid of football.“

    Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung is reporting that Ford are - very quietly - establishing their own bank in Köln (HQ of Ford of Europe).

    Why is this relevant?

    Because at the moment, Ford have their European banking and credit arm in Warley in the U.K., that handles credit for all Ford dealers in Europe.

    Going to the extent of starting essentially a new bank in Germany, is a huge step, and maybe they’ve not got much confidence in Brexit?

    Ford started pulling out of the UK back in the 70s as their plants in Germany and Spain expanded and on the back of all the industrial unrest they had in Dagenham.

    I would guess Ford still sell far more cars in the UK than in other European countries, which is why they are "quietly" establishing in Germany.

    I never owned a "Dagenham Dustbin" and have no desire ever to do so. Vive la Peugeot.

    there are 4 reasons that prove Jesus was a Greek in reality:
    1. He got a job after his 30s
    2. He stayed at home with his mother all these years
    3. He believed, like all Greeks, that his mother is a virgin
    4. His mother, like all Greek mothers, believed her son is a God

    Which probably explains this old chestnut?

    A Greek and an Italian were arguing over who had the superior culture.

    The Greek says, "We have the Parthenon."

    Arching his eyebrows, the Italian replies, "We have the Coliseum."

    The Greek retorts, "We Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics"

    The Italian, nodding agreement, says, "But we built the Roman Empire."

    And so on and so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion. With a flourish of finality he says, "We invented sex!"

    The Italian replies, "That is true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to women."

    You know what they say about people who keep going on about homosexuality. Is there something you would like to tell us all?

    Don't write so many words in your posts regarding Greeks please.
    There is not enough space anymore to write them on my balls.

    Bacon butty yes.....many years ago. (Kosher Macon is actually nicer than Bacon, it is less fatty and crisps up better)

    I never had any desire to try sodomy and after my prostate biopsy in 2006, that just confirm why it is definitely an abomination.

    We write important things down on velum made from discarded foreskins. You can write the entire works of Shakespeare on one if you rub it enough beforehand.

    We need to listen to Neil Kinnock now, because he and his family have made a mint out of the EU over the years. He was so inept he couldn't change a light bulb in the UK though.

    Bloody 'ell Chris what's all this about? The AfD trashing Mutti with a pro-UK speech?

    Dr Weidel, who oversaw the AfD surge in the German election last September, unleashed a fiery address at the Bundestag podium to a huge round of applause.

    She said: "The EU wants to make an example of Great Britain, a punishment beyond any economic or political reason. This is not how one treats a European partner.

    "And by the way the recession that was predicted ahead of the referendum did not happen! The British economy has showed growth.

    "Now Brussels, Paris and Berlin are afraid that others could follow, that other states in Europe could take back their sovereignty.

    "And that is why the European Commission is planning to restrict Britain’s access to the single market even during the transition period.

    "By supporting these plans of the ostracism of Germany’s biggest trading partner in the EU you are taking free trade and competition as a hostage and making a failed EU ideology.

    "The good trading relationship with Great Britain and the rest of the continent have to be maintained - otherwise Europe will be at a disadvantage in global trade."

    It’s smoke and mirrors mate.

    It’s common knowledge the right-wing apes in the AfD have reached out to the more extreme fringes of the Conservative Party, looking for a sympathetic ear.

    The AfD care about as much about the U.K. as I do about the average Derby fan.

    It is the same problem across the whole of the Western World, the traditional conservative parties have moved towards centre-leftism sociopolitically and created a void in the political landscape. Voids in political landscape get quickly filled.

    This is barely the beginning of deciding who's in charge. The system is hopelessly and typically complicated and as always, there's a lot of talking to be done before anyone settles into a new job.

    ....also a couple of decapitated horses and a few assassinations committed by the Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei perhaps?

    What clearly needs to happen is that all the heads of state in the EU (inc May) should meet, with the total exclusion of all the Brussels Mandarins, and agree a new way forward which involves the forced resignations of Juncker, Barnier etc and the plotting of a new course that involves greater sovereignty of nation states and a return to the old Common Market.
