Oh to be in England, now that summer's here,
Grey cloudy skies, dripping rain,
No end to it, I fear.
Lights on all day, lights on at night,
The longest day has gone,
So we return to our homes,
The brightness is all done.
Soon we will need the heating,
Expensive bills to pay,
I loathe our ruddy climate,
Let's all go away!

    Noooooo rob you aren't allowed to say what you see these day's, your meant to say it is similar but we need more minorities to make it much more realistic as it enhances the indigenous populations perceptions on the wider concept of a "global" village and in doing so introduces the concept of exclusivness of the "whole" regarding global humanity, and it also breaks down the barriers created by the white Anglo Saxon western males racial bias, enforced by their ignorant/arrogant post colonial hangups they still harbour towards the foreigner/outsider, who we are told repeatedly "only what's to live in peace and "enhance" our western culture and country as a whole.

    Mind you some might think that a load of old liberal c$%p designed to beat/shout down any chance of voicing/debating the concerns that the indigenous population has by the clever use of a modern alter fascist "mulitcultural" minority biased/positive discrimination doctrine, enforced by constant repetition of the same core "laws" until they effectively become the normal socially accepted default until all other views become negative and not aired due to fear of exposure. flippin heck me spleen went pop big style Rob!!.

    I did look it up, and I am trying to remember. I also googled Male IC1 and finally found the answer I wanted, after a quick look at some very interesting things! (fnar!fnar!) Thank you for the hint, and the answer Rob. It is raining again here and the temperature has dropped suddenly. DD
