I lay into you because you post a load of bollocks. Not because I'm unduly sensitive.

More recent family relocations mean that when we visit the UK these days we base ourselves in Glasgow or Dumfries. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
Maybe you should be directing this at others who have criticized and not at me. None of this makes any differnce to me you know.

It's different, there's less knife crime in Canada because everyone who wants one has a gun. If you want rough try Rexdale or any reservation; the third world right next door.

Anyone emigrating from the UK, to Canada or anywhere else, might want to be careful about burning bridges. It would only take a medical problem requiring heavy drug therapy to make living in Canada less sensible than going home. The same is true for the US. I expect luck is important in Australia too.

If you are going to post bollocks about me personally then I'm going to correct you.
And you have been rather eager to criticise the UK in the not too distant past

Neither of them. One was rather dismissive of my performance in bed this afternoon but, oh well, you can't get it right every time.

By saying that you could have lived in Woodbrige or somewhere similiar is hardly bollocks just a possibility! I even gave you the option of correcting me which you did. So I don`t see your problem on this?

As for my criticisms that you refer too.........Well I think you will find, that it was only people like you that blew it out of proportion in the first place and gradually destroyed the thread for the many others who were participating.

I think many others just on this thread alone have said negative stuff, far stronger than anything I have ever said in the past, so remember that before you start putting the blame around. So stick all of this in your pipe and smoke it, you old misery

That never happens. If it seems likely I just lie back and think of England.

It's better to give than to receive but I can live with being the relatively passive partner. I think of architecture, art, history, culture in general, sports cars, access to Europe, physically beautiful landscapes such as the South Downs or the Cornwall coast, and let the foreigner do as she will.

Certainly is better to give than receive, but I suppose that is just a matter of personal opinion Sadly I don`t think about any of the stuff that you put, just in the thrill of the moment or hopefully momentS as I don`t believe in selling anybody short

Obviously, if one is in Canada, the thought of a well designed building or a bottle of fine wine at a price one can afford, is overwhelmingly exciting, but one might think that, for a European, such things are humdrum. Surely you don't explode whenever you think of the Sagrada Familia?

Pardon the lag in posting this, the horses were hungry.

Heh, I think this thread has taken the inevitable turn it deserved, and in a mere four pages too; dbd33 on good form today

Cheers, Iain (also ex-Suffolk, and also having never visited Woodbridge)
