True Brit 18

There are reportedly 3 different films presently in production dealing with the events revolving around the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Generations of British children are familiar with the date but perhaps less so with the actual events (especially in the absence of proper history lessons in school) Harold Godwinson was the last true English King and died defending these islands from foreign invasion.In his short reign he managed to defeat one European invasion and died only days later after being narrowly defeated by a second invasion force from France. Harold was our last true king and how I wish he was here now to fight for the rights of a Britain free from rule by European parliamentary diktats......a man truly to fight beside.

Films will probably be revisionist twaddle.

Listen here Thnump

What the bollock are you going on about? "rule by European parli....etc..."?

Had we been in the Euro - we would be better off. And our bleedin' economy is in tatters...worse than any other European country.

Our stand alone attitude is childish bullshit...and you know it.

Yea - perhaps in 1066 and all that - it made sense to stand alone. But now? In this age of globalisation?

Grow up. And wise up.

Make those things your new year's resolution. There is only so many times we can smirk at your naivity.....we are getting tired of Little Englanders like you.

You dont even bloody well live here.

You're wasting calories, tapping at the keyboard to reply to Mr. P. he's not worth it...snooze!

Word verification is 'wally' how appropriate :)

What odds Harold to be played by a black man?

A properly-done moving about that battle, and the events leading to it... that would be worth watching.
