Iraq is not on the list.
But Egypt is 12th and Thailand is 16th. Both lunch time jobs.
So tell me who should be on the list with supporting data of personnel, and air, sea, land, equipment then.

You tried Egypt before, when you were rather higher up the list, and as soon as Uncle Sam started a run on sterling you stopped pdq.

The Suez Crisis I believe it's called.

Wiki I know, but on the whole historically correct. Have a read : :thumbup:

Any word from our resident EU lovers about the Italian budget. Brussels have given them 3 weeks to redo it in a way the EU like it or they will be punished.

List of nations that will be punished by Brussels in they don't do as they are told.

Greece (took several beatings)
Ireland (took it KY style)
Hungary (laughed at EU)
Poland (not a flinch)
Slovakia (not a flinch)
Czech Republic (not a flinch)
Italy (we wait)
UK (not a hope in hell)

That is 8 of the EU 28 and ignores the Catalonian's in Spain. This is going well. I'm sure there is more in the baltics and others but the blowback hasn't even started.

The EU elections next year will see the majority of MEPs be from protest parties.

Nobody is talking boots on the ground. The key is to just render all their installations useless over lunch and let them crack on. That's where things have been learned now.

Poland, Czech's, Hungary and UK have their own currencies and can set their own monitory policies and can devalue their currencies .

Italy is in the Euro so it doesn't control its currency therefore will be told what to do.

Or, in other words, stick to agreements the Italian government has made, and face legal sanction if it ignores the agreement.

And here is where it will unravel. Italy isn't the other Euro nations, its a little more important that most of them.

Oh my God it wasn't at all predictable what you were going to post next.

UK will unravel faster than the EU due to how divided it's going to get.

Also Italy will probably have a new government next year. Italy wants to leave the Euro, not the EU. If anything Italy for a very long time wanted closer EU integration.

Actually most Italians 60% + want to remain in the Euro.

Not a hope. Its bringing many people together against the EU.
The EU is actively trying to break up the union and that is a threat to the UKs national security. A stronger leader then May would have laid down a marker much earlier that this is unacceptable and made it clear to Brussels nice in early to step back or relations would go south very fast. The UK has to look at the EUs efforts to interfere at this level as a clear indication that they should not be trusted.
Hard Brexit and a Trump white house is an ideal time to send the EU back in their box and is in both London's and Washington's interest.

The EU doesn't have to try and break up the UK union. The UK will do that themselves. First a United Ireland, the Scots will get confidence from that and leave, then it's England and Wales isolated.

Funnily enough they were the country that paid the most of the UK's rebate. So that 350 million on the bus minus the amount Italy and other EU countries were giving back to the UK.

You are off your rocker. The actions that would be taken long before such things are even a possibility would have repercussions far and wide. You are very naive if you think Scottish independence has any hope. I suggest you spend time anywhere in Scotland outside of Glasgow Celtic sink estates.

I've never been to Scotland. Brexit is a vote and expression of English nationalism. Yugoslavia broke up after Serbian nationalism became too dominant and while I don't ever envisage violence in the UK, I do see a peaceful breakup of the UK. It will be beautiful. England would be better off alone anyway .

Scotland is a national security thing for a nuclear power with a seat on the security council. By hook or by crook that land will not be given up. Sturgeon has had her chance,, she blew it. Post Brexit when the doom doesn't happen she will look like all the other remainers and will have her credibility ruined. SNP gone for another few decades into the wilderness.

Both sides were telling pure lies. The chancellor and the governor of the bank of England included. I don't know why people hang on this £350m as if that turned people who wanted to stay in into people who wanted to leave. Personally I think the expansion of the EU to include the Eastern European countries was the beginning of the end for the EU.

Just a taste

Funnily enough they were the country that paid the most of the UK's rebate. So that 350 million on the bus minus the amount Italy and other EU countries were giving back to the UK.
True or not that bus thing wasn't about a rebate was it ?
There was no mention of a rebate. That was the problem. Pure lies swallowed by an ignorant population.
Ignorant people says a man so obsessed in another country. He posts daily about it for years wishing the British people follow blindly, ignorantly and sheepishly behind a project with no idea where it is going.
Another country that's on our island. How wouldn't I be obsessed.

The project knows exactly where it's going. Going to speed up now once the UK are gone.

I've never been to Scotland. Brexit is a vote and expression of English nationalism. Yugoslavia broke up after Serbian nationalism became too dominant and while I don't ever envisage violence in the UK, I do see a peaceful breakup of the UK. It will be beautiful. England would be better off alone anyway .
Scotland is a national security thing for a nuclear power with a seat on the security council. By hook or by crook that land will not be given up. Sturgeon has had her chance,, she blew it. Post Brexit when the doom doesn't happen she will look like all the other remainers and will have her credibility ruined. SNP gone for another few decades into the wilderness.

They were gone until Brexit vote. Now they're back. You'll regret the day you voted leave.
What polls are you looking at. Their support hasn't moved in years. 3-4% nationally.

Both sides were telling pure lies. The chancellor and the governor of the bank of England included. I don't know why people hang on this £350m as if that turned people who wanted to stay in into people who wanted to leave. Personally I think the expansion of the EU to include the Eastern European countries was the beginning of the end for the EU.
It was the UK's policy to encourage enlargement so as to weaken it. How that failed.

We agree there. Onward to the socialist utopia. Good luck with your veto on the tax. :lol:

Common market
Economic community
European Union

At this point in time you're still in the EU and there is a chance if there is an extension, the leaving could be delayed for a few years, even permanently. If the UK remains in the EU it's a win for Britain and a loss for English nationalism

Has it? As I sit in Slovakia.

Not as popular as you might think and Brexit and Italy aside Poland is the one to watch.

I hope they make a success of it. I can't see how with the olives and the eastern block countries sucking the life out of the northern Europeans but good luck to them.
