It just gets old, Theravad.

We don't speak properly.

We don't understand humour.

We're all thick, etc.

It's a stereotype and it's old.

I'm not so much offended as just tired of it.

It was a joke, tongue in cheek, no offence meant - and was meant as an extension of the comment in

Are you seriously offended by this? If so I apologise.

It is quite simple, revoke independence, swear allegiance to the Queen and we can welcome you back to the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and North America.

This will (1) make you use GMT/BST instead of all the silly time zones you have (pacific, mountain, eastern, yeehaw etc) (2) stop the McCain / Obama nonsense (3) give us a use for Gordon Brown (you can have him)

Technically the clocks should go back at 01:00GMT 02:00 BST on the 26th.

But I'm not waiting up ;)


Well neither am I , hence the pre-emptive strike :)
