    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.

    Dunno why he needs to learn how to sail. He won the America's Cup

    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, MORE Marxist government tbh because National weren't precisely tight with the purse strings. But still, at least they provide entertainment. I think Labour is heading for a 2nd term the way national seems to be crumbling provided Adern doesn't collapse under the pressure of new parenthood combined with one of the most demanding jobs out there. If she pulls it off, good on her. But better her than me.

    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.
