.....with the USA isn't something that was borne out of mutual fondness and friendship. Quite the opposite. The "Special Relationship" began when the USA declared war on Japan. Japan had an allied agreement with Germany, so Germany then declared war on the USA. The USA didn't come riding over over the hill, like cavalry to the rescue for the UK. As a consequence, military co-operation was a necessity and so was intelligence. Churchill was reluctant to reveal Operation Ultra to the USA but when he did, that was the start of the ridiculously so-called "Special Relationship" In 1934 the USA developed a plan called War Plan Red. This involved the possibilty of the USA declaring war on Britain and the British Empire. The initial stages of the "war" would involve invading Canada and British held Carribean territory. The "Special Realtionship" was war time thing folks. Nowt else.

Thank you for the warm welcome and appreciative comments.
What's upset you this morning?
Is there a point to your anti British BS diatribe?
Was you watching The Last Leg last night?
Question Author
There you go again,TTT. Anything factual really does grind your gears don't it? It's just history mate. That's where it originates. What's anti-British about that?
Question Author
I don't know what The Last Leg is, so no, I wasn't watching it.
//It's just history mate. //
Perhaps it should be in the history section.
I'm just curious as to what you want to discuss me old china. You regurgitate some selective history that suits your general anti British stance and then what? What would you like to discuss? Do you have a question? or is this just a na na nana na post?
didn't we understand you to say you were suspended, TTT?

I love this website. :o) Facts is facts is facts. The anti-British thing pervades your head permanently, TTT. Something akin to Fred Doberman (Harry Enfield) who gets worked up about nothing.
well I thought I was about to be but I wasn't.
10cs: "I love this website. :o) Facts is facts is facts." - indeed they are and they can be cherry picked to support any point of view.
The Last Leg is a great show on C4. Watch last night's on All4 and see what they say about the special relationship. I found it entertaining

I'd think you need to redefine what you consider "anti-English" Tora.
Question Author
Actaully, it's Frank Doberman, not Fred. But everything else is the same. Time for brekkie. Thanks for all the replies folks. Byeeeee!!!
10:40, who said anything about anti English?
Triggering intensifying.. Reaching critical levels...

RUN, HE'S GONNA BLOW...
