Can't you see the link?
The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.

eh - what guy??
I guess you don't actually live in the UK: Much that goes on there escapes your notice -- unless it's prominently featured on the telly! (Would you like me to redact one 'l'? You gave me a hard time about "torry"... :) )

What guy? Hm. Probably your next conservative PM. But never mind: Scots are not important for matters of state.

Wrong as usual dear ex-colonist. Way back in the days of Empire Scots were great administrators of it and in more modern times a whole selection of Scots have been outstanding in the GB parliament. but there again being a Yankee you lot don't know much about the outside world. Every time Yankeeland is involved in some regular military thing or confrontation hen your citizenry are asked about where it is re street tv interviews they are mostly blank. Unfortunately for some God forsaken reason we constantly get groaned with internal USA news which is ridiculous. However as you are a regular i wil let you know we are 3,000 miles away across what is called the Atlantic Ocean. Happy to be of help.

Howie, you misunderstand me (or as GW would have said, "You misunderestimate"... :) )
Being bureaucrats and cannon fodder does not make you statesmen.

Brexit puts a final end point at this thread.
We finally get rid of anglo saxons.
A matter of attitude.

Being a European and Portuguese Belfager it is not just the Anglo Saxons but the Scots, Welsh and Ulster people. I will try nd make allowances for your double background.
