Thread Name: BS: British Rule.The vote
Subject: RE: BS: British Rule.The vote
Language, or syntax anyway, is a reason for my preference for following exchanges between Wolfgang & McGrath. Can we agree that six counties are under John Bull's Tyranny? Hm. No, didn't think so. Well how about Northeast Ulster? // I know: Give Gibralter Back To The Irish. W. & McG: "Back? BACK?" Well, yeah, good point; but Eire likes tax havens too, right? Shouldn't be only for poets. The Celtic Tiger tekkies could go & work on Gib. / Then, Spain could get the Falklands instead, provided the Sheep so vote (a minority will say Bah); Argentina could have Hartford, Connecticut (nobody else wants it); and Great Britain can have the State of Rhode Island. I'd like to get some civilized neighbors over here.

(OKOK, sorry. When the issues are too complex for my little brain I revert to mental anarchy. Back to the serious discussion.)
