Much as I'm enjoying this thread, I'd like to remind all the posters that Politics are verboten on this forum (and I can see why). It's an emotive subject and one that's very much dependent on where you were born and bred - so no point in thrashing it out on here.

P.S. No posters were intentionally harmed, insulted, belittled or sneered at in the comment above. JK's had a very long week and he'd like a rest now pls

The frigate had .50 caliber M2s on each corner, all manned by a gunner and a spotter. Anyone within about a quarter mile had a gun trained on them. I have no doubts they were locked and loaded.

Yeah they are totally hypocrites on that up here too. They will cut you off or do whatever the hell they want but lord help you if your speed and direction of travel (in their minds) brings you within 400 yards.

Ah, you'll have to forgiven me. My old man trained in Frankfurt in 1964, so a lot of childish activity was "Verboten" in our house when we were growing up!
