If examples like you come to agreement with UKIP and merge the anti EU Tories with them and jettison the pro Tories. Not rocket science is it, old ghostly cleric...

Carl. The UK on it’s own shines above the EU. This is how it should be, this country looking down on the socialists. Uk awake, it's time, don't you know !

How can a country run by narcissists, feminists and public schoolboys ever achieve greatness?

Didn't you watch the Opening Ceremony?

And anyways. Does France really deserve to rate this high? It's been 200 years this Fall since Napolean lost his Army in Russia. They haven't produced much since besides left-wing revolutionaries, dense thick prose pretending to be literature, and decent champagne.

But then, I am an American, so I might be slightly biased.

Nice picture, Your Grace. It shows us in the right place.

Except... just a quibble: I flatly refuse to label Britons as europeans! By the Grace of God this land got separated from them 10,000 years or so ago. By that same Grace, our ancestors later came here: to the end of the known world ... as far away as they could get from euros :))

I say it's a terrible betrayal, and utterly unnatural, to bundle us under the euro label, at this late stage!!!!

In the days of the British Empire Britons were more than happy to call themselves Europeans.
At the mess in Malaya British troops ate European food.
What kind of food do you eat?
Cheeseburgers,hot dogs,french fries
and Jell-O?

Your Grace, if Alex Salmand gets his way, at least one part of "Britain" may well be pleased to declare itself "European" and team up again with the "Auld Alliance."

Genetically, at least until fairly recently, the "British" are European, being decended from the various invading tribes since the ice began to retreat. More recently it seems our DNA sources have begun to diverge, with a great deal of it now coming from Haplogroups more usually associatted with West Africa, the Middle East and the Orient.

Perhaps it is time for e rethink as to who we think we are ...

It has been suggested, Carl Jacobs, that one way of looking at the US War of Independence, and the UK/US war of 1810, was that they were both really about Britain v France, and rulership/domination of Britain or France in north America (apparently, France's role in support of the Colonists, in 1776, was crucial). Interesting ... (oh, er ... off topic? Sorry ...
Well, I suppose we have to say that we are in the end European in some sense - but we are all still better of politically separate.

I think we should pay tribute to Norman Tebbit as the inspiration behind Britain's success in riding bikes.

It has been suggested that if FIFA ban the Scottish football team from competing in international competitions and insist on us fielding one team for the UK, the result of the Scottish independence referendum will be a foregone conclusion.

Sigh. Well, Your Grace -- I promise not to delve into all this yet again. Suffice it to say that my claims as to British origins stem from the work of Bryan Sykes**, which seems not to diverge greatly from that of Stephen Oppenheimer.

Sykes interprets his analyses as indicating that we are predominantly 'Celtic' ... not of the central european type, but of a Neolithic-->Atlantic type. Whether most of these Celts came here from Spain or more directly, earlier origin would be Balkan-Indo-european rather than western or Germanic. However, the study also indicates that our most Germanic inheritance (probably Scandinavian... difficult to distinguish), is evident principally in the north and east of GB.

This view integrates with studies in other disciplines such as Linguistics, Cultural Narrative, Archeology, and British-History-before-the-marxists-re-wrote-it.

Certainly, I am deeply sceptical of newer studies put about and funded by europeans or europhiles, conducted by people with foreign names, and which employ dense foreign terminology and measurements to explain us to ourselves. It suits the devils to contend that we are what they say, and not what we are.

Culturally: where we've adapted their cultures to suit ourselves, fine; 'twas ever thus. Otherwise, our culture's been going downhill fast since they've forced themselves on us.

As to what I eat... that's irrelevant and the suggestions are insulting. I never buy anything euro if I can help it.

Politically and practically then... I refuse to be european. If they don't like it, they can do their worst. End Of.

As to late additions to the "mix" ...well they're not British indigenes. They're what they are, and they exhibit every intention of staying who they are. My response to that is not inconsistent.

Spain and the Balkans are in Europe. These studies confirm that you are indeed European.

Mighty Mouse is quite correct !

The peoples of the British Isles are very different to the peoples of Europe and it is getting worse. Germany will eventually eclipse France and become the European driving force. The problem is the Germans were never colonised by the Romans, which no doubt explains the different approach to law, the foundation and bedrock of all civilisation.

We should do what we are manifestly extremely good at, and that is not so much extending, but continuing our influence in the rest of the world. Non so more than in the English speaking areas we created from lands occupied by the frequently savage but always ignorant indigenous examples who (…AHEM…) ‘kindly’ stepped aside and allowed the miracle of this seeding to happen.

If we fail to do this, we stand to become the neglected back water off the north west coast of the continent while Fritz the Efficient and Johnny Frenchman continue to link arms and plunder the hapless satellite states around them to pay for their European socialist madness…

Rule Britannia or else, what an easy choice !

Manfarang: Well... East is East, and all that. So they did say in the bits of empire that I saw ...places we studied while we consolidated our knowledge of geography--- and got as far away as possible from eurolanders.

You have ignored the main points of my previous post, and that is certainly your privilege. However, you also need not bother to tell me who you think I am. I don't have time for "debate," especially as my position is longer-considered and better-informed than you apparently conceive.

Besides, tedious definitions of what each us means by "european" would be off His Grace's topic. Why, they might even lead to ramifications from the premise that both East and West are "Out of Africa"!

So my stand remains, simply: Over the course of the last 10,000 years, indigenous Britons chose, not to travel with other tribes from Indo-european lands. Some minorities later defected from eurolandish settlement among their own tribes and chose, instead, our "pleasant pastures." Ultimately, we all fought to retain independence from enemy euro-tribes.

By the same tokens, I REFUSE TO BE euROPEAN - ---
even if "Hell is empty, and all the devils are here!"(Shakespeare. The Tempest; I.ii.213-14) Ferdinand).

END OF.

The UK team has just won gold in the ‘500 metre sprint laden down with riot loot’ race

PS: Too much haste, alas!
For Clarification of mine @ 20:22:

even if "Hell is empty, and all the devils are here!"(Shakespeare. The Tempest; I.ii.213-14; Ferdinand):
the "devils" I refer to here are not indigenes, but present-day masters/invaders!!! They effect some pollution, of course.

Also:
that should be... 'what each of us means'...

Thank you, OIG!

The Olympics are getting embarrassing: others have begun to notice our exhibitions of mass "emotion." So maybe it's time to "man up" and stop all this weeping.

franco-german psychology pretends that wetness becomes us; however, it really acts like a flawed mirror. It hides the fact that euro-culture has already infantilised us... And we'd better watch out because the next step is nationalised encephalectomy.

So ... about that medal count:
The truth is that we do best to consider it in terms of Anglospherics. Together, we and those who share our cultural/linguisitic heritage are racking up a total of 105 medals.

The number reaches 111 when we add in other English-using Commonwealth countries (India, Singapore, Kenya).

Yes, indeed: we are stronger if we pull together with our own.

We are much weaker if we allow the euros to decapitate and dismember us: and that is the effect of their 'divide and conquer' policy. As I recall this is also one way of interpreting the monstrous baby image in that clappytrappy deconstructionist-style Opening-Show...

The west atlantic people in the Republic of Ireland don't seem to be winning any medals unlike more multicultural Britain.
