We would laugh and take it in jest, as it was probably intended!

You would and I would but I doubt if we all would.

I don't think you would need to be French to do that!

Do you include the French response to BREXIT and the use of our vaccine?

It doesn't bother me at all, we're out of the EU now and Brexit is done with and, as a Brexiteer, I couldn't be happier.

Bozo is my local MP and everyone takes the piss out of him !

As for the "Ginger Whinger" (as you call him) , there would probably be a petition started but not about taking the piss ..... only about using the term 'Ginger'

What if someone objects about this forum , as 'in their view' it glorifies the Imperialist history of Great Britain ? Should we censor our history ?

I made my views on our country and it's history quite clear in post 15. As for the Ginger Whinger, in my opinion, the "Ginger" bit is very fitting and I don't just mean the hair.

But isn't that the point , you may feel the term "Ginger" is 'very fitting' but what if others (or even one person) objects , should your post be removed ?

I personally don't think any posts should be removed but that is not my decision to make. We are all entitled to an opinion but some people are more touchy than others.

All else aside, I have learned a new Britishism: Ginger Whinger.
American women have certainly caused the monarchy much trouble in the past century....

Yes, my first thought when I heard of Harry and her was good on yer mate.
My second thought, as I voiced to an American mate was oh...... she's American....... no good'll come of it then.......

I suppose we'd better think of it as payback for all the second rate actors the UK's shipped to America in the past.
