    I tried look for a pic from dead ringers where they impersonate Greg Dyke (Ex-director general of the BBC)

    so i could say "My name is Greg Dyke - I'm the director General of the BBC" but i cant find any youtube videos or pictures :(

    Lately this forum seem to be less about the uk and more about coordinating the consumption of food and drink

    tea is an english drink... :p

    so here's some UK related things for you; 100,000 protestors to march in london against spending cuts... riots around the corner perhaps?
    and it's funny that we slash the education budget... yet build huge-ass aircraft carriers? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Queen_Elizabeth_(CVF)

    wait no... now i get it! we don't bother to educate the children as well as we should... so we prepare them for the future by building massive weapons of war

    to be honest, to keep fuel prices down... somebody needs to go to the CEO of one of these huge oil firms in saudi arabia and point a gun at his head. Never mind... 2003 that already happened.
    does anybody remember a time last year when fuel prices dropped to like 88p a litre? :) good times.

    Something surprisingly interesting and UK related:
    BAE Systems (UK) is the largest manufacturer of firearms in the world...
    UK is the 5th largest exporter of firearms in the world.
    As of 2008.

    Not too near to folkestone, about 25-30 miles away from folkestone actually, but BAE seam to have loads of locations according to google maps

    and my definition of near is less the 30 minute drive so thats a wide area

    Yea, you're the same distance from me as Ashford, but it takes longer to get to Canterbury because of the A roads. You're the same distance from me as France aswell!!

    I need to get out more!! How do I not know this shizzle???

    What did you have? :laugh:
