If it walks like a duck, and squaks like a duck it's probably Gerry MO.

Yop, mate, its me! Next target on my to do, Goodw***! Bauble I count on you to supply a lot of help. From the dedicated threads, I understand I should protest a lot, criticize sharply, moan a lot, complain, raise a lot of doubts about any car compliancy, competitor driving standard, official attitude, color of the grass, animals food and so on… till I get an invite! From this blessed instant I'll say how great a meeting it is, the best on earth so far. Sounds good for you?

Gerry you old geezer, not 'arf, gripe about everything, and you will be a true Englishman, we love to put the world to rights, without actually getting out of bed. Everything is wrong until it suits you personally - then it's the Bees knees, ace, brill, and A1.

Lord Chas's extravaganza is just a load of Hooray 'enriys, pomcing about in snap brim trilbies and hacking jackets guzzling buckets of Champers, and guffawing at a lot of old bangers racing round the track. Of course if you should get invited to compete it is a nostalgic trip back into the good old days when men were men and they raced in green, a fantastic tribute to the heroes of the past. Lord March would be a paragon of virtue for his insistence on originality.

Hope this helps put across the proper English attitude to most things.

Toodle pip,

Bauble.

Thanks Bob Mate! It helps a lot in my understanding. Well, hope so. Being at last English, I havent to hyde anymore my fascination for our Admirable Nelson's life. All trains coming from the other continent should arrive, again, at Waterloo after crossing Trafalgar! Lets rename Abbey Road rue d'Aboukir!

To please one of our future official gov' member, I shout:
"Cry God for Harry, England and Saint raaaaaaasp"! Loudly. Just wonder what it really means though…

Going back to the topic of the thread , when I came back from Spain the Portsmouth Customs were searching every truck, which I’ve never seen before. As usual they lost concentration when they saw the contents of mine.....

If they asked how many pesetas you had in your pockets, sure they are very knowledgeable officers!

Going back to the past, I think that certain members of the motor racing fraternity relied on that happening when they tried to pass through Customs.

From stories I've read, that definitely was the case! Given comments during the ‘search’, I don’t think it was stowaways they were looking for, either. Luckily I was one of the first off the boat, so guess those last to join the queue would have had quite a wait.....

So taking stock, where are we now? I gather our elected are back and hard at work, but there is some concern (according to the Beeb this morn) for their mental health. Apparently the stress is getting to some.....

Concern for their mental health? We should open a # like "bring a shrink" for all politicians. Or: free the lions and put the real crazy people in cage! I guess next step in France will be something like "lets have a Frexit based on the Brexit rules and results! Bonne chance with that!

France is looking good for a retired racer's base again; Nice M Macron has promised lower taxes, increased pensions, and the workers (if you can find any) are going to have to work harder. Utopia?

I think I saw headline in a UK newsprint wasting publication today that suggested the UK was heading in the other direction.

No more free TV licence for the over 75s and older person's bus passes canned for example.

I think it's time to be completely honest with the millennials and point out that the western style pension system is completely unsupportable 'going forward' (I think that's how they speak isn't it?) and so they can expect to work until they drop - probably achieving little more than growing just enough food to support themselves and their family once our mad politicians have adopted the policies defined by Extinction Rebellion.

No way would anything as noxious as motor sport survive the transformation and in fact almost anything to to with transportation of good will likely be working with far smaller volumes and to different protectionist rules.

However if personal trackers are widely implemented even the old time creativity of smuggling will be challenged to come up with full proof cloaking devices although the, er, 'management' of the payments required to operate without interference are likely to be payable to Beijing rather than Westminster.

That said the two above named places may, in effect, be under the same ownership by the time any of this matters.

So should one attempt to learn French or Mandarin?

Think the House of Lords came up with ‘get rid of pensioners perks’ yesterday, which is how I saw it reported!

So France it is, then. I already have a gilet jaune, so am sorted!

Spot on, David! Workers are missing as you say and if you want to meet a wise French retired you've better go to Spain, Portugal or Morocco! Remember Aznavour's song? Il me semble que la misère serait moins pénible au soleil!
