Ronan attended the Queen's jubilee yesterday. As she passed by, he bowed down.

I watched it on TV yesterday and I almost threw up.

I am very proud to be a royalist, and I have great respect for our queen.

How many heads of state did you have in France in the last 60 years?

..... You should also know that I am a believer of tit-for-tat policies. If France treats Canada as a province, then Canada should treat France as a province or a territory too! Let the Queen of Canada rule France?
..... How will, if at all, the election in France on June 9th affect Canada?
..... Does it matter that the Federal NDP's leader has dual citizenship from Canada and France?

ohhh don't be silly - you almostgot in a fight because of YOU not Ronan -

Unless - maybe Ronan told you to get in a fight - he held a gun to your head and he said Alex yell at people call people names or else.

oh that's just awful - Ronan shame on you :(

--nice to check in again on this site--I see there is another lady on one of the threads trying her best to find out if it will be easy for her to find white Frenchmen to sleep with if she goes to France. too funny that should determine a woman's life choices.

By the way - I didn't watch the Jubilee, but I saw a few photos, I can't work myself up so much for it anymore - after Di's death i am not much of a Royal watcher. But I wish the Queen all the best.

My uncle sent Mom a nice commemorative pen. I am pretty sure most of Mom's brothers and sisters are at least not anti-royal.

Well, of course...

Greece hasn't been able to keep its monarchy and drifted towards socialism in the 60/70s.

Just look at the state of it now: the country is chronicaly unstable, heavily undebted and on the brink of bankrupcy.

The best thing to come out of Greece was Phillip Moutbatten, the Queen's husband!!

England is 200 years behind, you still have a queen, and you bow down to her like a slave.

French people took care of this problem in 1789, now noblemen corpses can be found at cemeteries like the cimetiere de la Madeleine or the cimetiere de Saint Margerite. millions of rotting corpses and skeletons (over 2 million) indeed from the revolution are gathered at these cemeteries. you see, French people dont like be treated like slaves, then and now things havent changed.

Our monarch is the figurehead of our country and not the actual ruler; I thought you knew that.

And we don't "bow down" to our Queen, we just respect her. You are just jealous; the world evies our Queen. She is an admirable Lady.

In France, as soon as you elect a new head of state, you lampoon him and turn him into derision. You cannot even respect your leaders. In Britain, we have a monarch who ensure continuity in the life of the country and the institutions.

Your anti elite stance isn't matched by reality in France: your society is more divided and more class-ridden than ours.

In Britain, we don't call people Monsieur, or by their title, but by their first name in a friendly manner. In France, people are constantly back-bitting, at work, among neighbours, between relatives, etc... We, Brits, live in harmony and in a positive atmosphere. The French are very insecure, constantly jealous of esch other; very unlikely with the Brits.

Anyway, what is your contribution in the Greek bankrupcy?

In joke form here are some very important things to know about the French or anyone associating themselves with the French:

A: Semper Fi (Always Faithful)
Q: What's the motto of the French Army?
A: Stop, drop, and run!

Q. Why don't Master Card and Visa work well in France?
A. They do not know how to say "CHARGE!"

Q: What do women who are snipers in the French military use as camouflage?
A: Their armpits.

Q: What’s the difference between a Frenchman and a bucket of crap?
A: The bucket

Q: Why do the French people seem so hell bent on kissing Jacques Chirac's ass?
A: Because the French, in general are less sensitive to bad smells and certainly more tolerant of bitter flavors!

Q: What do you call a French man killed defending his country?
A: I don't know either, its never happened!

Q: What Does "Maginot Line" mean in French?
A: "Speed bump ahead"

Q: What’s the new French flag look like?
A: A white cross emblazoned on a white background!

Q: Why did the Post Office have to recall its series of stamps depicting famous Frenchmen?
A: People were confused about which side to spit on.

Q: Why do French people always wear yellow?

Q: How many gears does a French tank have?
A: 4 reverse and 1 forward, in case the enemy attacks from the rear.

I play a positive role here Ronan, thats all you need to know.

London is the most corrupt financial center in the world, it's well known. Brits have always been into trade, shuffling paper and ffccuking you in the process.

Tell us more about it.

Someone said that you were a waiter. Business must be grim at the moment.
Do you make much tips?

London is an ideal place for business, and a magnet for foreign investors. You can't say that about Paris or .... God forbid... Athens!!

How is your ...Euro doing, Stavros? LOL

I recently bought some; now 15% cheaper than in February!! LOL

Even in Algeria, tourists are now welcome with Pounds Sterling rather than Euros!!

How do you explain the Greek debacle, eh Stavros?

You used to be a waiter in Paris; now you are a deckchair attendant in Athens, right? LOL

That's a promotion....
