    Hmmm, sorry sparky - knowledge runs a touch deeper than that. Even if you like the EU as an institution, the fact that the single currency has been an unmitigated disaster for a good number of the EU countries is utterly undeniable to anyone with even a reasonable understanding of economics. An absolute inability to devalue their currency (or have it devalue naturally) is a very large part of why the PIIGS hit financial skid row. In case you are unaware, one of those 'I's stands for Italy. And Rennie, as for complaining about me raising the spectre of politics, I didn't - xlot did, I just expounded upon it.

    I hope like he'll 5 star lead you lot out of the EU, or at very least offer a binding referendum on the matter.

    Don't teach a pig to fly, you're wasting you breath and it annoys the pig.
  4. Whilst the absolute chaos does make them fun to watch, this is not what I was hoping for in the Americas Cup. Silly me. Oh well, fingers crossed that the 75s aren't the shit boxes I think they will be.

    And you questioned me when I said NZ has the ability to truly fuck this up. Shame on you Stinger!

    Yes mistress!
  7. I'm probably going to regret getting amongst all this crazy, but yup dropped the Mike big time. Can't have it both ways. Either the boat is "righteous" once the MC signs off or it ain't. If the MC erred in signing off either ETNZs AC50 or Orifices AC72, then thems the breaks. The referees made a call and you live with it.

    Ah, well played. Sorry, I'm a bit slow today.

    Spithill. He was going on about how him, Couts, etc al were wankers as if somehow I don't agree with him. However my point has always been that just because they are pricks, doesn't mean Dalts should stoop to their level.

    Proteas? You, but pretty much everyone outside of Oz thinks they are pricks and probably a good number of people in Oz too.

    I never said Jimmy had grace. The guy is a total cock sucker. I just wish Dalts would rise above it and demonstrate once and for all that he is the better man.

    Well, we all have preferences I guess. I admire a lot about Dalts and in particular his dogged determination. However, I prefer a far more dignified approach to sport such as Peter Blake demonstrated. Otherwise we are little better than the Oz cricket team who are the epitome of douche bags.

    Actually Dalts have shown a lack of grace on a good number of occasions. However the two that most obviously spring to mind are post victory AC35 plus when he publicly put the boot into the designer of Camper (etnzs VOR entry) when the pace of the boat was found wanting. I think anyone who suggests that Dalts is a gracious individual is being pretty disingenuous.

    You don't go into the actual match with a 50kg piss take on board. So despite the absurdity of it, some fucking Einstein seemed to actually believe it was gold and not the comedy kind!

    Yup, if you were to look back in the threads last year i genuinely thought it was tbe Orifice boys winding up ETNZ because the concept was just fucking ridiculous. You know, how they "covertly" carried bows around to Japan's based to wind up the likes of Spindio who fervently believed that Orifice were going to purposefully destroy their boat so they could race Japan's which apparently had jet engines retrofitted to it. So yeah, that "bmx" was the purest of comedy gold.
