So, I'm guessing they have wi-fi there? (As well as the free communion wine, of course).

I hope Ami prayed for the Eu, I don't imagine anything less than divine intervention can save it now. :lol:

I reckon that wine the preacher hands around must be pretty powerful stuff.

It may come as a surprise to those unfamiliar with "the rest of the world", but we actually have electricity, water, mobile phones, TVs, cars, roads, supermarkets, shopping, food, and all kinds of modern stuff, including 4G internet. :ohmy:

Careful, Dick seems to want everything to collapse at the moment. Maybe he'll beg for the collapse of all mainland European roads or internet or water networks.

Nasty little man.

There is a new series of telly tubbies coming out soon.

If that was a Spanish Church I wonder if they were doing a 2 for 1 special offer before midday Ami.

Maybe that would account for your confusion. :unsure:

Nasty little man.

He and others have been saying that for a long time - plus that we're all terminally impoverished, of course. All of which naturally, provides the rationale to fear it as they do.

Oddly though, in the midst of all this despair, I still have yet to find much visible evidence of it. In fact, the standard of living just seems to keep improving, visibly exceeding even over there on that utopic GMT fantasy island of modernity and "sophistication". But I'll keep looking for signs and keep you posted...

The Brexit White Paper.....


2.1 The sovereignty of Parliament is a fundamental principle of the UK constitution. Whilst Parliament has remained sovereign throughout our membership of the EU, it has not always felt like that.
Unlike the Leave Campaign, the SNP can at least legitimately play the 'sovereignty' card, as Scotland awaits permission to run its own referendum.

Magaluf isn't even open yet, Dick. It's still all boarded up, awaiting the Brits abroad pub crawl crowd. Thank god that is one area that's not expanding. Besides, it's becoming a bit pricey for Brits now.

Anyway, here's a preview, framed in a way even you can comprehend:

Two types of people in this world it seems.

1. Some people are happy enough with leaving the game.
2. Some want to puncture the ball, set the nets on fire, push the goal posts over and shoot the referee.

Read the bit in bold again, and tell me you understand what it means. Then stop shit-posting BS that says the UK isn't sovereign.

It does make one wonder why if you've "won" the game, what's the point? Unless of course, they're worried they actually didn't.
