  1. It is. You're just very stupid. This is also, sadly, incorrect. Britannia was the original name the Romand gave the island. When they named the province they had control over of they used the island name. Similar to Luxembourg being the name of the city and the state I guess. Same name for two places with one within the other. Also ignores the original name of Britain from the p-Celtic. Britannia wasn't made up from thin air. It was the latin transliteration of the name of the locals. (Although that doesn't mean the original Celtic name referred to the whole island. It probably didn't.) If we were going to argue that Britain refers to E&W as it was what the Roman's called their territory it should include Brittany as it was named Brittania as well (Brittania Amorica... spelling might be off) Britain is just a shortening of Great Britain. If it had any other meaning it would be the British Isles + Brittany
  2. Nope. You're just an idiot. The "great" in Britain refers to size and size alone. There's a weeee bit of debate about whether it refers to Britain being the largest of the British Isles (in a similar way to the largest of the Cayman Islands being called Grand Cayman, etc.) or if it refers to it being bigger than the other Brythonic area of Europe: Brittany. The Gaelic for Brittany, for instance, still refers to it as "Little Britain". Happy to help
  3. What level you loaning them out to? Try and get them to the level they're at. So if 2 stars is a Championship player don't let em go to League One. Try and get a feeder team sorted... Elgin or some shit. Help build em up to the required level and yer laughing
  4. Fucking hell. The idiot's showing himself up again Hopefully the pretty colours will help it sink in for him this time
  5. Probably gonnae catch Morton v Hutchison Vale. Kinda weird seeing that name without the Lothian Thistle attached now.
  6. The next IndyRef campaign should just be showing everyone the 2014 Better Together campaign. Vote No for cheaper energy bills, wage rises, lower inflation, to remain in the EU and we'll give ye more powers as well. Honest.
  7. Probably wont know what it means. Will just shrug "che?" before stabbing some gammon in the arse and riding away on a scooter
  8. Well we had freedom of movement with the good people of Greece for a coupla decades there without any issue so don't see why it would be an issue with Albania and other south eastern European states. This was previously answered on this very thread. I know you're an idiot but even you can use the search function.
  9. Don't really have a line on border control tbh. The current use of passports/visa/asylum seems to be working fine for the most part across the world. What do you mean countries "like" Albania. Can you name other countries "like" Albania and let me know what the common links between those countries are? Hard to give an answer until I know what you mean by "like" Albania.
  10. I'm not angry and I'm only abusive to arseholes like yourself and @Dawson Park Boy
  11. Yes, you don't see anything wrong because you're an idiot, we know that. But can you explain how this is a "play" on words? Is it a pun? Double entendre? In which way is the use of words used to denote, I dunno, a kind of wit or illicit a jocular response?
  12. So because I thought the word "invasion" was purposefully hyperbolic that automatically means I want completely open borders? You do jump to some ridiculous conclusions don't you?
  13. Just to confirm: Hyperbole for comedic purpose: nasty Hyperbole to stir up xenophobic idiots: fine Yoons are fucking weird
  14. Probably the word "invasion" which, generally, means an armed attack in order to conquer the existing populace. Seeing as I doubt there are sufficient numbers of Albanians to take over this island via dinghies from France and, even if there was, the complete colonisation of the British Isles is almost certainly not their aim I think him saying "invasion" if not wrong is clearly hyperbole and inflammatory language. The world really is a worse place for having him in it.
  15. tbf I almost greenied it but didnae want tae disappoint
  16. Say what you want about Farage it takes some skill to make ye regret the day they put seatbelts in aeroplanes
  17. I never said your opinion that a generation is 30 years is a nonsense Once again, the reading comprehension of Yoons is shown up to be as thin as their skin. I said your timelines for referenda is a nonsense.
  18. Not at all. They can take it that way if they want. No-one is denying anyone from taking a clearly subjective opinion from a statement (the fact the person who made that statement has clarified the meaning doesn't seem to matter to them either weirdly). I am not denying anyone to make up whatever definition they want. However, even if I was, I'm not denying them the right to self determination based on prejudiced viewpoint. Different thing altogether.
  19. And you would love them less if they were split into two nations rather than one? Suddenly Gateshead having a different foreign policy to Coatbridge would see your love for them diminish? Not asking you. No-one is. You have your weirdly specific timelines for referenda. Have yer opinion. I'm just pointing out that it's based on fucking nonsense.
  20. You got this on a spreadsheet? If so could you do a quick calculation to see who has the win%?
  21. I'd argue English non-league is a better watch. Has a wonderful mix of 6'4" mutants who can head the ball really far and 5'4" sand dancers who can beat five players then shin it out for a corner.
  22. I'm not angry. Just incredulous at people's blinkered reading styles. People must be really stupid to think it means that they are saying there can only be generational referendum. Even if they do read it that way, and believe it's plausible, they should at least be intelligent enough to understand it could be plausibly taken the other way. In which case they are denying a democratic right to self determination on the basis of their own, admittedly, personal take on a sentence rather than an objective stance. That seems remarkably selfish and self-aggrandising.
  23. I mind going to see AFC Wimbledon v Northampton with ma mate who was a Northampton fan. Made a joke after ten minutes I hadn't seen a single pass played forwards along the ground yet and made an effort to look out for one. Came to half time and there wasn't one. Genuinely saw better passing and control in the Fort William v Golspie match the other week. Although obviously either of those teams would have put double figures past Golpsie. They play to their strengths. But it's mind numbing and, also, explains why some Scottish players can't hack it down there. It's just not a system that suits them.
  24. Hate to be the one to break it to you but, as that report came out in the past, we are now in the future. In fact it was three general elections ago, each of which the SNP have won available seats at a landslide. They've also won two Scottish elections in landslides in that time. Won, by far, the biggest vote share in the council elections and also were the biggest part in the European election. Seeing as there is nothing written anywhere stating referendums should be generation shouldn't the seven electorate victories for the party promoting a second independence referendum not be a barometer for wanting another referendum as opposed to grasping onto a stock phrase used by an ex-politician nearly a decade ago?
