You are Mr T, and I claim my five pounds, sterling.

Course nobody in good old Blighty would resort to colloquialisms, local dialect or accents, in their derision, would they...

I think my spirit belongs in France, or Italy or pretty much anywhere else but this Neanderthal island nation of ours.

5 or 6 times at least, Brought the bike to Brittany last time i went. Early each morning I rode the 10 miles coastal path into town and back. Had 2 cigarettes and 2 coffee's and watched the Britons beginning their day before cycling back with a bagful of freshly baked croissants for breakfast for the wife and children who were just waking up. I love Rural France , can not abide Paris though.
