Maybe it will take the collapse of a couple of Italian banks to focus the EU mind.

"The German chancellor and other state leaders oppose ‘coronabonds’, arguing that such a concept would punish those countries, like Germany, that have built up reserves during good times."

Google translate tells me "Sod you Jack, I'm all right" in German is:

Verdammt du Jack, mir geht es gut!

Everything I've said before - yadayada ...

Oh, maybe just one more wafer thin mint? ...

European 'til I die.

SoD

"European 'til I die"? Where will you be buried then?

SoD, you crazy dreamer!

When I go, I want my ashes spread in three places: In New York Harbour at the feet of Lady Liberty, in the river Thames in Windsor, and in the river Vltava in Prague.

See to it comrades, please, see to it.

Excuse me, I'm getting a little lip-wobble ...

SoD

SoD, I have always had an uncanny admiration for you....

By George, that's the second compliment after Mary in one day - after nada in three and a half years!

If this continues the upper lip-wobble could become unbearable and I might have to dig out the old service revolver and do the honourable thing.

SoD

SoD,

You are a comic genius.

Sod, if it has to be the service revolver put some plastic sheeting on the carpet. I heard a true story from a train driver. He approached a station near Glasgow and was shocked to see a guy lying on the track in the rabbit position bollock naked and with his clothes neatly bundled next to him. Turns out the guy read the train time table wrongly and missed the fast straight through to Glasgow.

Jimmy, perhaps that extra wee dram confused him - and saved his life!

So now that there is harvest time for a lot of vegetables, guess who's missing?
Same the wealthier old, who are not willing to go to retirement camp, for whom they long for?
We are a lot too educated to crawl in the dirt we nourish ourselves from, let's take the cheap labours away from their families and pay them just ... accurate.

David, it was in Glesga Buckfast territory.

Mina, if you join the Plain English Society it would be helpful for us poor and oppressed.

Glesga,

If everyone were as considerate of carpeting as you this would be a much more attractive world.

Totally off topic but it is the 72nd anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel.

Chag sameach

Am Yisrael Chai

G'day Whitewall.

Indeed.

Here it is set to music

Well said, Mina!

When the time comes, do you know anyone who'll wipe the Gaffer's arse because I don't fancy the job myself?

Welcome aboard, keep the comments coming, I need all the help I can get!

JK,

Apparently some Americans don't measure up to "reasonably intelligent":

"KDHE: Man drinks cleaning product 'because of advice he received'"

Bob, your fellow Yanks have been taking substances for decades including your well off politicians and students. A wee injection of turpentine or toilet cleaner seems to make the USA function.

EU financial aid to the colonies is boomerang dosh.
It flies out to the periphery swoops over the needy, who stare up in grateful awe at their benefactor's munificense, and then zooms back to the German banks, just in time to save them.
