It astonished me too while I was typing that! I was trying to keep it simple.

You are correct. Being called European seems like a bit of an insult to me.

Nothing against other Europeans, but the UK is better suited as a 51st state if America would have us than a member of the EU.

I'd love to have the UK as a 51st state, but only if we can refer to it as England.

A friend of mine is from England. He always calls home the UK. Sounds cool. Now if I could only wade more easily through that heavy Manchester accent of his, our conversations wouldn't be nearly as long.

That's Mancunian.

I don't and won't ever consider the UK European. That is of course until the UK abandons the British Pound Sterling for the Euro, LOL! You guys did, however, hold your nose and build a tunnel to France, LOL!

All kidding aside, I consider our British brothers to be our closest ally and would stand with them until death!

I think you should have changed your name to creepy [email protected] gnome based on your avatar.

He looks like he is getting ready to get his [email protected] on with some other garden decor.

Any mancunian is good. My brother works there. The one thing I can't handle is the pathetic attempts at Mancunian from ALL the players on "Frasier". Including the English bint that's really from London.
