Watch out, with your tan, and Ukip in control of the borders, you might find yourself getting a bit more familiar with Rhodes than you might like.

And here's one to mull over while you're quoffing your sparkling vino: if the immigrants cost more than they pay in taxes, and put pressure on public services, how come a treasury analysis has shown that Scotland will need 500,000 new immigrants in order to fund Scottish pensioners? : -

Doesn't quite fit the old "they're a drain on public finances" canard, does it?

When did you start believing the government?

Late yesterday I was noticing among the British media a certain discomfort re the elections. It sounded like barbarians had breached the walls. Something is truly out of kilter within the FORCE.

SoD? "[H]ow come a treasury analysis has shown that Scotland will need 500,000 new immigrants in order to fund Scottish pensioners?"

That's an easy one even from Austin (well I'm in a plane an' likely nearer there than where I started)

Your treasury probably been watching over here - our's has been on and on about we too needing "new" immigrants to fund my Social Security. You'll know for sure if the immigrants you're being told "you need" are, rather than being highly skilled at some useful profession are rather highly skilled at taking away in Welfare payments what we natives were promised 40 years ago.

JK, maybe your immigrants ain't got what ours have, I don't know. If you ask a Ukipper, he'll tell you ours are both stealing our jobs and stealing our benefits. Yes, a tricky one that, unless you go in for that parallel universe stuff. If you ask me, I live with one and observe her friends, and I'd say ours work harder, pay more tax, and claim less benefits than the locals.

"Ours are both stealing our jobs and taking our benefits". Take a look at Detroit.

Myself used to fly, that'd be until changed medication.

Up2L8...."Myself used to fly, that'd be until changed medication." I know what you mean. On prior meds, I didn't need a plane.

Whew!

Well Ups (Hold down Arkansas til I get back) Whitewall, might see about getting yourselves some of those little blue tablets. In 10 mg size - two under the tongue, allow to dissolve then swish your mouth out with a snoot off a 40 ounce, swallow.

Leave about a third remaining in the 40 ounce so when you get to boarding (depending on whether it's a civilian flight) so the TSA (or otherwise) guys can feel good that they've performed their mission.

Now if it's to be a helicopter ... might wanna switch out the beer for the high octane. Might wanna get to boarding a little earlier too.

I never thought I'd live to see Germany elect a Nazi again, but it appears they just have.

And France has elected a majority National Front.

So how's the golden dawn looking over Lyndos this morning?

Do you really think you can control them now?

First of all, Sod, thank you for that piece of film genius.

But second, don't just blame the extreme Right, save your ire for the piggies in Brussels/Berlin, to say nothing of Westminster who have kept their snouts in the trough and ignored the voices of the people.
