Slavery was grand too. Different era.
Wise up Dave, why not throw in the Holocaust for good measure. Hardly comparing apples with apples.
I don't think the Holocaust was ever grand.
The very worst aspects of the holocaust were not common knowledge.

Re: And today, joining the underground .....

I suppose they were related. 3rd cousins whatever that means. Sent from my 5001D_EEA using Tapatalk They shared a great-great- grandparent, in this case, Queen Victoria like most of European monarchy. Also 6th cousins once removed, i believe (via Geo II) Also 4th cousins once removed via Geo III ?

Re: And today, joining the underground .....

Tell me this and tell me no more. Why the absolute f*ck has the BBC got exactly the same output on BBC1 and BBC2 i.e wall to wall coverage on Phil the Greek with extra helpings of that arch sycophant Nicholas "the Scab" Witchell? Wtf am I paying for here. Think I'll write to Barry Took. These proto...

Re: And today, joining the underground .....

If Benedict XVI has disagreed with anything Francis I at any stage in the last 7-8 years, does that mean Hans Kung was right and either or both Popes were wrong? Double barrelled proof there then apparently . . . but I might be wrong. I'm not infallible. and yes, i know that "Papal infallibility" r...

Rapper DMX. I'm sometimes over-suspicious, but did anyone ever see him and Prince Philip together, in the same room?

Re: Quins game in the bic biro

I suspect we will be playing a first 15 next week which will be more of a test. This victory didn’t really tell us anything! I think we probably learned more from the Dragons Northampton game. For me it was that Northampton are very beatable. Discipline will be key, but a well drilled, speedy defen...

If use of the word keeps growing at this rate, we'll need to get Rooster in to remove them. If only he had a special vehicle for the purposes.

Given a high enough pressure air-line and the right

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

The bookies have Ulster 5/2 favourites to win this competition. Other odds: Montpellier 3/1 Leicester 5/1 Bath 11/2 L Irish 8/1 Northampton 10/1 Newcastle 12/1 Benetton 100/1 Ulster currently 4/9 to win in Northampton (6 points on the handicap) Seems about right to me. It will however be a test of ...

Re: Quins game in the bic biro

Saints turn round 15 point deficit at 39-24 down to win 43-39. Saints looked the more beatable of the 2 yesterday tbh. I couldn't see Ulster doing much against that Dragon's defence. We must be shyte if saints can put 43 points on them. Well that's a matter of opinion, of course. Nhampton kicked ov...
