Getting out of the disaster zone at all?

Surely not! That would be hypocritical in the extreme - he was having a go at people who live in the EU voting to remain a while back. Reckoned they should have refrained from voting. And he's voted Leave and wants to follow that up by f**king off out of the country. No way!!

I love Mexican/Spanish insults. Puto, pendejo, cabron. They roll off the tongue beautifully.

Special mention goes to the Slavic 'kurwa', Russian 'cyka' and Finnish 'perkele' as well. But I might just spend too much time on Polanball ... :unsure:

I can insult people in English, French and Spanish but that's as far as it goes sadly. I should broaden my horizons....

One of the first phrases I learned in French was taught to me by my mother:

Tu as un visage comme un cul de singe.

I use it often.

I love the way insults are universally understood.

My smattering of high school French and Eddie Izzard's 'Dress To Kill' video (la singe est sur la table) helped me there.

Funny, when you think that the term 'cul-de-sac' really means 'the bag's arse'.

I hadn't thought of that, but you're right.

At this point, I'm almost ready to have Eddie run the country.

Now it's all you will think of every time you're by one.

He knows a thing or two about running.

You knew two families! Probably the elite I am speaking of are lower down the scale than yours--the lawers, doctors etc. However they were also a minority of the general population.

Economic developement without the British? What was Britain like in the 18 and 19th centuries the work-houses, the social inequality, illiteracy, poverty etc. The poor of the UK were not helped by the takings from the Colonies it was the growth of socialism that helped that. (Another topic.:lol::)

I was commenting on you writing that even the elite had " no personal possessions" etc. I mentioned two families I knew of which I knew their family history. I am quite sure the idea that lawyers and doctors not allowed top have personal possessions or they were taken away is quite incorrect- I am thinking you meant something else by your words.

If Britain developed economically from the various factors I mentioned, that doesn't mean during that period there were not problems- just like India is progressing today but there are still areas of terrible poverty.
