Where's your imagination? You have to line up your putt and say something like "jimenato...this putt for the championship...the crowd takes on an expectant hush..."

What's up with you, are you trying to bring this back on topic?

If so, then expectant hush my arse, more like frantic teeth gnashing and hysterical wailing.

Which ain't that easy at the same time.

Dear Ms Bot, I have a question..

I just love the game and spent the last 3 days in front of the tele
The passion of the Ryder Cup is just the best, second to none.
Did you see the crowds !

Have to wait 2 years now

Allez allez allez allez yes yes yes

Btw on my course it is a challenge ... 7,5 km up and down the slopes ... with a dog attached to the trolley.

Yes, pushing those trolleys is quite a challenge. Followed by hours on the putting green.

Sorry, it’s my fault for continung the subject. Totally off topic, now back to Chequers.

I only watched highlights of highlights, spent most of yesterday.. no I'll put that in the French forum or the Belgian thread.

Does the dog have a handicap, apart from being attached to a trolley?

Could it lead a UK political party?

I think the wait is a big part of what makes it so special. Those guys in yellow and blue ...

Tiger Woods has never had a good Ryder record, even when he was on top of his game. He just won a title as if "he's back" and he promptly lost all four of his matches. That, together with the world's current number one, winning only once and losing four, really shows the Ryder Cup to be something special.

You state 5% when the reality is 14% - the usual emainiac attitude to facts - was this another of your matter of public records?

I don't think you can be verbally abused on an internet forum can you?

I have no issue with remainers who can support their argument with verifiable facts , but nonsense such as losing our independence etc only deserves ridicule..

It's what children do when they don't get their own way.

I thought you were a remainer? Why would you ask for verifiable facts?

(In your previous post you asked a question regarding my OH, it was not a argument.)

The status quo is a verifiable fact, where as your brexit fantasies are far from them..

Being part of the British empire was once the status quo for the now United States. Do you think them delcaring independence was a bad idea?

Well, look at it this way. A little over half of those aren't from the EU. So, with with respect to Brexit, how will it have any impact on the other 8% or so? And what would happen if the UK actually started using the tools at its disposal, like all other EU member States do? Might that have an impact on the 6% or so of EU immigrants?

Still, these aren't big numbers, so while I can appreciate that you might not like 1 in 9 people on the street being foreigners, the question is, is the unlikely chance of reducing it worth the consequences? Especially considering that the UK hasn't even used the tools it has at its disposal?

Still, as post-brexit UK becomes a less and less desirable place to live, the "problem" may well take care of itself.
