And I just asked my Husband to delay a delicious meal so I could post this...
One all apparently!!! in less than five minutes.
Wow how the Icelandic banks took a hammering and stayed true to their own unique sense of country and pride.
Just like we are with this Brexit vote. Ouch.
My Husband said we want to win this game so we can play the French and go and stuff them too. I said will they let us play now we have decided not to be part of a huge Europlot to become a federalised unination? (Urination)
He said no, the French will tell us to F**K off and they won't play us now we don't want to be part of Europe!
At least we don't have to be part of that awful Eurovision song contest, not that we are likely to win it anytime soon. Anyway I will miss the Eurovision Grand Bretagne nil points if we arent allowed to enter.
Perhaps if we had done better in Eurovision we may have decided to stay in!
Fickle us Brits... and if this team don't win tonight my Husband will think the UK have no pride left at all. Huge groans from the lounge...
I said the Icelandic team have nothing to lose as they are not professional players. They have a national pride that bucked the banks.
But we will fight it out on the football pitch. I noticed all our players were singing the National anthem, 'God save the Queen' with a gusto and lip service I have never seen before.
The Newspapers were saying that the Queen was asking dinner guests three good reasons to leave the EU.
1) No European Army
2) A new policy on Immigration. (we need to be able to invite anyone from anywhere if they have the skills we need).
3) Not to be part of a federal united states of Europe. We want to be able to lobby our own ministers.
If the European Federal Bank, and the Federal Parliament project comes together, it's war with Russia next. We went into the EU on a trade deal, not to lose our right to sovereignty.
By the way we are already losing 2-1 so our team had better up their game!
As Jersey is a 48 square mile island with a population of over 103,000 we have similar issues to the UK. We have had to comply with all the EU directives without a vote at all in all of this.
We do have an immigration policy which has failed over the last 10 years too. We have a system where businesses have to apply for non locally qualified staff to work, and their capacity to employ non locals is diminished.
We also have a housing policy tha only allows for a given number of non locals to either rent housing, and only after a given number of years allowed to buy housing. It has slowed up our population growth. Although at the moment over the last 10 years the situation has become slightly tipped, and our infrastructure cant quite cope, so internally we face tax increases.
Thats unless our tourism figures take a dramatic upturn, so please consider coming here for a great holiday! See trip adviser because we have some of the best blue ribbon beaches, and superb restaurants you could wish for.
We have a great Island, and so does the UK. We are open for offshore trading, and I assume the UK will be soon as well. (Very well regulated offshore trading in Jersey).
