I've been thinking also about the devaluation of our language. A so-called athlete on 1/4 million a week alledgedly legless on international duty, demands respect when confronted with his behaviour. His manager believes that he gets less respect than the manager at Arsenal. What kind of fantasy world do these people live in? I really dislike the way they misappropriate our language in order to explain away their failings.

Farage as our man in Washington? The world has gone completely bonkers and the loonies are running the show. Whatever next? Prince Philip as the ambassador to Beijing, Jezzah to Moscow, Tess Daly to anywhere a long way away, Ed Balls likewise.

Further suggestions welcomed.

Harold, it needn't all be exports. We could take a leaf out of Trump's mouth and invite countries to send people we want as their representative here.

Mel Gibson running Racial Equality Commission
Silvio Berlusconi as vice..............
Benjamin Netanyahu i/c of Palestinian Affairs
Hillary C . email server expansion programme
Anyone from Belgium. Did you know that the guy who invented the saxophone is in the list of the 10 most famous Belgians?
The prime minister of Iceland to be England football manager. It's a woman so probably a good idea.

All agreed with the above.

Perhaps we could also invite Sarah Palin to join parliament. I don't care much for her politics but she would brighten things up, and would make Parliament Today worth watching. :D

But does she understand the Offside Rule? ;)

(I don't. :o )

I didn't realise Audrey Hepburn was Belgian.

The composer Caesar Franck was Belgian, but the Frogs wouldn't let him study music in Paris unless he became French.

As long as Farage is overseas and out of my sight I don't care where he goes!
