:lol:

I was thinking of the Forkandels sketch but thought it might be a bit too "British". A timeless classic.

I think we were lucky in the 70s. The likes of the Two Ronnies, Porridge, Morecambe and Wise, Fawlty Towers and Tommy Cooper. They don't seem to make 'em like that anymore.

in reality i am with corbyn on this one. we are both brexiteers because eu does not allow it's members to nationalise industires. so his idea of norway plus is the best of al the worlds. we will pay in to the eu and be free to as we please with our industires. we will have a fta with the eu and use the wto rules to trade with the rest of the world. and of course the eu with 600 million population was able to get a lot more beneficial trading agreements which i also disagree, they should be fairer to the developing world.

but mark my words with no deal-brexit if it should happen we will not only not have the fta we will also be unable to trade under the wto rules as we have no agreed schedules to trade with, we have been using the eu schedules. the assholes in the tory party actually believed that we could just replicate the eu schedules so they have done fak all till a week ago when they put forward this idea and it has been immediately blocked by the eu. thy have said you want to leave get your own schedules. of course no we have 164 nations to seek approval for the scedules but thats another story.

there are three reasons for staying in the eu, economic and human rights and regulations. they outweigh any advantages we may get outside

back to the entertainment.

There won't be a no deal. Neither side can afford it. It might seem to happen and they will say "Oh no! No deal! Disaster!" but actually there will be so much wheelin' 'n' dealin' to keep trade flowing it will make your head spin.

Anyway - yes. I'm enjoying this thread. It brings back a lot of memories. Shit - doesn't time fly though? :wink:

...good info, something to think about; and funny.

amazing how much truth is found in humour, isn't it? And in effect way ahead of its time.

We may judge a society by the way it treats its animals, but it is in this ability to laugh at ourselves that People are judged, as Freedom loving.
