    fascists dont work like that they have an inner circle and the top man, the inner circle trys to over power him, it works on fear and propaganda

    fuck it we are nearly fascist already we have a queen right who has divine right who can do whatever she likes not that she does

    social values are different from whats actually happening just because one society finds it okay dosnt mean that it really is

    if another war starts we should hide in our little island and use our navy and air force to save us, face it we dont have an expedition force anymore its not like people in the UK are healthy and fit to fight if we needed conscription

    who the fuck would we fight anyway its not like there is a huge power that we hate, okay iran but they are hardly worth it

    i wonder why we havnt seen a NOD copycat group (command and conquer) LOL

    Super cheddar's fine, if I have a packed lunch I'll take a breezeblock of the stuff, just I was after something to drink or a cereal bar or something.

    A few slices of mature cheddar, a few spoons of ploughmans pickle and either a can of carling, carlsberg, fosters or a bottle of bud and Im set.

    wtf do mean arnt you under the age to drink?

    a pure block of cheese lol just biting chunks out of it i can imagine it perfectly
  9. kyle2020 Guest

    Its in my own home under the supervision of parents - in other words legal ;)

    Telling me you never drank under the age of 18? :laugh:

    And the language thing - have you ever noticed that despite us being a very small country in comparison to say N. America / Russia, China and so on, we are one of the most influential in the world and expect all other nations to speak our language :laugh:

    call it the british empire sure it crushed other cultures and was pretty harsh but it did a lot for globalisation!

    No i have never drank alchol untill i was 18! AYE RIGHT! TBH i just dabbled in it, still dont drink much these days and im legal. Legal sounds so nasty lol.

    You want some sort of mind control then to get them to do what ever you like, like build a giant stature from mature blocks of cheese in honour of you!

    The British Empire still exists, it just has a less imposing name.

    I disagree, we all think we have independence but really in the end we all going to need one another for one resorce or another.

    All this crap about the economy (money) we don't even need it to survive, IF we used other ways of payment the whole world would be better off in the long run and we'd probably have more technology than we do at this moment in time if things wasn't all about GREED.

    But just to add.... England should own all! haha... okay and Wales, Scotland & Ireland should too. LOL! :D

    Dont you forget it a Scottish king united the crowns and technically wales dosnt exist!
    In 1536, the Act of Union brought England and Wales together, united into one.

    So its a principality in part of the UK not its own country.

    English law means its part of England and then the UK later when Scotland joined.

    IF we went back to barter trade and not a banking and money system of trade it would be a backwards step youd have to trade something someone wanted to get something else, its like you would need to trade with the butcher something he wanted to get meat you couldnt just work and buy meat.
