Rapmaster2000: There's a lot of "harumphing" in the headline, but the quotes are pretty tame. At this point I'd start asking why the British press is so sensitive to dry statements of general economic policy and concern.Is it just because it's coming from the French?
praymantis: To bad France did not say that in 1939 1066.

At this point I'd start asking why the British press is so sensitive to dry statements of general economic policy and concern.Is it just because it's coming from the French?It's because it's the Daily Telegraph, the main mouthpiece of the Conservative party. It's the conservatives who are the most rabidly anti Europe, mainly because they think that it's still 1913 and the Britannia rules the waves and that Europe (both as a place and as a political institution) is full of smelly foreigners whose only goal in life is to drag Great Britain down (always pronounce with the emphasis of "Great") and preventing it from assuming its rightful place as a shining beacon of world freedom and prosperity.Seriously, you should talk to some of these people, they are completely farking delusional. In their minds it's like the last 100 years never happened.
imashark: Then, let's create a new government called the "United North Atlantic States."Let's see, 50 here in the US. Another 10 provinces in Canada. Let's make them each states. Except for maybe Quebec. Prarie shiat, let them in anyway.Then, in the UK-that's another 4 at least. Plus maybe Ireland. So 5.So the UNAS will be 65 states.66 if we decide to include Puerto Rico. Why not.We welcome our English-speaking relatives back into the fold.
mainstreet62: Do we really need Mississippi? Or Kentucky?
sheep snorter: Back a few years ago in Europe:Hey lets have all these countries use the same currency!Awesome!! Better cross border trade and no need to deal with exchange rates.Oh but what about those lazy lay about countries that will surely be a burden to the working countries?Shhhhhhh. We will secretly whip them into shape to not cause an eventual meltdown.Hey these mean old working countries are trying to make us work and cut costs. RIOT AND BURN EVERYTHING DOWN!!!!/Those lazy red States of the U.S.A. are a burden too as they keep taking free cash from working States with their ancient style governments needing to be purged.
NostroZ: Same goes for lower California, they don't start work until at least 10:30 and leave at 4:30.
jjorsett: NostroZ: Same goes for lower California, they don't start work until at least 10:30 and leave at 4:30.I hope that means Baja California or you're talking about government employees. Here in SoCal USA , I start work at 6:30am and frequently stay till 6.
Robo Beat: According to an article I read in Le Figaro on the way home yesterday, the British political right want the UK to be freed of any obligations or responsibilities they might have towards the European Union or the other European states, but still be able to trade with the rest of the continent without having to pay import duties or deal with any of the other hassles one would otherwise encounter when trading outside the customs union. Have their spotted dick and eat it too, basically.
