Blame one man for playing the game you guys and your "representatives" of sport created ( and corupption seems to be the requirement of sport these days) and you do no more than highlight your own uncertainty about nationality, achievement and, ultimately, moral commitment to freedom and equality. Let the powers that be dictate your appreciation of sport, why not? Moan all you like: Ypou created this situation, treating sportsman like messiahs, kising the rumps of commercial sponsors, and refusing to modernise...Fans? no, Slaves...

Spin: you're talking to yourself again. Keep it together, remember that (philosophy notwithstanding) we're not figments of your imagination: we are really here.

Gille: I know the posters on this thread are not figments of my imagination because my imagination is more pleasant and desirable than the reality presented by posters on these threads..."Hell is other people" (Sartre) =)

[Booing from the gallery] More pleasant and desirable I can believe - at a pinch - but also, I'm afraid, a lot less sensible.

Obviously Britain's 'takeover of world cycling' (not my words, the News's) is some kind of international plot to make us look good (in the eyes of people who are impressed by cycling).

Can they do the same for the footie please?

Yes, it would be handy.

Strange really that Boydy, who says he doesn't believe in nationality, keeps raising the issue.

Strange?.....the fount is simply pointing out the absurdity of modern nationality...

How will you organise and administer your nationless world Dearie? Will there be one gov, no gov or what?

Beloved...the fount had always thought that as humanity moved into the twenty first century that a maturation of the human 'mind' would develop...a "growing up" that would make all isms and all governments redundant...sadly the fount was very wrong.

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Jul 2013 22:42:28 BDT
Very silly.

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Jul 2013 05:14:06 BDT
Very kooksy.

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Jul 2013 10:33:53 BDT
True, very sensible.

Please say why you thought that folks would <<mature mentally>> because champagne corks popped when the calendar said, "2000".

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Jul 2013 11:59:03 BDT
Beloved...the move into the next century...was (even though a mental construct) a big moment for reflection and change....

You raise an interesting and difficult question. It is good to know that there are other cases where things are much simpler, i.e. Andy Murray is Scottish!

G. Heron...the fount appreciates your feedback.

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Jul 2013 14:32:52 BDT
LOL.

and British (or rather UKeydonkey as our passports say now).

McMinty is many things: son, brother, mummy's boy, lover (ooooh), dog pal, tennis player, right handed, 6' 3", 185lb of toned sinew and muscle with 7% body fat (nice), footie fan, likes boxing, 50 Cent, digital devices, Feast ice creams, go karting and Starbucks coffee, worth 50 million plus...there's a lot more to Andy, than mere 'Skittish'. His birth certificate says he was born in Glasgow but he was reared in Dunblane where he owns an hotel and lives in posh Oxshott in a 10m mansion that he shares with two dogs and his lover. His middle name is 'the Barron'.

Did you ever question Mo Farah's Britishness?

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jul 2013 15:07:22 BDT
Yes....

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jul 2013 15:40:20 BDT
Oh yus, the Funboy lies awake in the genuine Navy Seal surplus man hammock, all night, every night, doing isometrics and questioning 63 million folks Britishness, 1.4 billion Chinese their Chinesesness, 29 million Venezuelans Venezuelaness, 2,500 Falkland Islanders Falklandsness, 66 Pitcairn Islanders Pitcairness...he's working his way through the Planet's 7.5 billion sheeple... its making him a nervous wreck.
