I dont think you can compare a poxy cricket game with a world war - practically every man woman and child able to lift a tool played a part it that - and they deserve to feel proud of their country as do all their descendants.

hard1 - you crack me up

I fear that trying to argue with certified members of the barmy army (I think thats what they call them selves) is a lost cause.

I concede.

Phil, I think he spelt it as in the chant 'Engaland, Engaland Engalannndd!

All is explained in his recent posts, the countdown in days to delivery of his new Ribcraft, so be a little understanding, the poor guy is Ribless
Hang on in there Roy

Thanks Kernow

I have the boat show this weekend to releive the boredom - I then have mine then my daughters birthdays in october - then theres fireworks night.

The withdrawal symptoms mainly kick in when im at the coast and the sea is dead calm and i see a load of boats nipping in and out of the coves and beaches. Aghhh.

I took the kids down to Lands End the other day (by car) and when we looked out there was loads of boats exploring and it was a lovely day.

I was so pissed that I had no boat I went and took the kids on a scenic flight round cornwall from St Just to cheer me up. Ouch that flying lark is expensive.

Don't worry. O/B fuel is reassuringly expensive also.

Not to mention hard to come by...

I dont know about else where in the counry but here in leeds (where I work) all the petrol stations are out of petrol and diesel because of the panic buying.

luckily I have a full tank so will be able to return home to sunny cornwall at the end of the week.

I did like the picture in todays paper of that criketing chap, looked like a seriously sore head lay behind the eyes.

Love the GB relationship to sport; if we invented it and we're losing you never see it. On the other hand.....wheel out the bleary eyed sentimentality.

Ofcourse any sponsored sport isnt sport its an industry that as a by product, waste even, produces light entertainment with a minor reality TV involvement angle...smashing if you like that sort of thing, where were the streakers? We've not seen any of them for a while.

Anyway well done chaps, comiserations to our antipodian cousins.
