    Well Ill tell ya we loved Blair and I think he did a lot of good for the relationship between the nations. I know "being up Americas arse" isn't the cool thing to be but would you rather be up China's arse?

    Also didn't Brown sell off all of your gold worth? Just in time for a massive world economic collapse? If he hadn't done that you guys would be sitting pretty right now.

    thats half the problem MM,you guys loved him coz he went over smiled,shook hands and drunk tea while showing crooked teeth(playing to your stereotype of english people),he done nothing but wimper and follow your idiot PM's whims instead of roaring like a lion for his people.

    yea brown fucked us up several times over:
    one year he announced he had taken like 1.13 billion too much in taxes?
    he thought he was doing us a favour by giving a couple million back..

    No we liked him because he backed us up in a time of trouble. Felt like we had a friend for a change. Never felt like the UK was sucking up. Believe it or not American respect strong personalties and I think Blair had that.

    Also you do realize that the relationship between our nations has gone south since Obama. He even sent back the bust of Churchill.

    I'm extremely glad that I don't give the slightest sh*t about politics. Got enough to worry about.




    TMM, did you just say that Blair has a strong personality?
    There is no emoticon that could possibly describe how funny that statement is.

    For Americans, right or wrong we like people who do what they say they are going to do. When Blair said he would do something (when America was involved) he did it. Our own Presidents don't even do that. Thats what we like.

    I bit the bullet on that memory, even if it was a little more expensive today. I figure now I finally found employment I deserve a treat.

    TMM, I was also annoyed when Gordon Brown sold off our gold. I reckon it would have been worth upto 50% more today. Plus it would have given the UK more financial security during the recent financial problems.

    Out of Blair, Brown, Cameron, and Major (i think I missed someone out) I think the ranking would go:

    Blair > Major > Cameron > Brown

    Tony struck me as quite intelligent for a politician. But, he said no tuition fees then introduced tuition fees. Typical.

    i can understand respecting strong personalities,thats a universal thing.
    its not like we would have gotten a share anyway so why waste so much other peoples lives...
    but i think we differ there,to me he was weak as dishwater.

    nice one finding a job millenium

    I don't think he was spineless. I think he was mislead IMO.

    And given the current situation in the UK I bet you would be missed. :rolleyes:

    Didnt last long? Only 11 years as Prime Minster lol 1979 - 1990, and she was much farther up regan's arse let me assure you ;) It was she who was one of the prime causes of the riots in the early 80's sadly. A good woman but her greatest failing is she never listened to anyone.

    I liked Blair, I never voted for him, I didnt agree with Iraq either but this country prospered better than any other time post war, just too much really!

    Man it's crazy the things you can find at the back for the wardrobe.

    An I/O shield
    A woman's cardigan (not my mrs's)
    A silver Tesco duck-shaped photo frame (never seen it before in my life)
    A half eaten dib-dab that went out of date in may 2010

    WHICH 'NETBOOK' TO BUY????

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGH

    HP Pavilion DM1-3200SA

    Toshiba NB550D

    the HP one looks good for the money. its got more power and more ram. so I was gonna put more ram into the NB550D if i bought it....

    but the E-350 equiped netbook wont last as long on battery as the NB550D.

    so many decisions

    No one agreed with the war over here really ether. I know I didnt. But we were blood thirsty as hell and you know......war is the best business.

    But like I said I think Blair was mislead. Hell a whole nation was. Doesn't make him a bad leader.

    AND MORE:Get the HP freedom, trust me, 11" screens are all right for everyday use, 10" screens while only an inch in it are usually of a really bad ratio and make using the PC a lot harder

    EDIT:They both have a 9 1/2 hour battery life rated, and while the HP may use slightly less if you really put load on it, it will be 1/2 an hours difference max


    Bottom line:Go for the HP

    Double EDIT:The HP has many more screen pixels as well
