Just recently Theresa May has demanded that the EU should treat us with respect and I’m inclined to think she has a point, which caused me to comment on her statement on another news site.
I wrote in response that; I’ve had many holidays in France over the years but if the EU continue to treat us like this I’m beginning to think that I no longer want to go there.
To which someone else wrote back and said; Do you think the French will care, or that the Brits are the only people that go on holiday within Europe.
My response was as follows; It’s obviously going to surprise you but I had noticed there were other holiday makers in France other than the British. I think the big clue was the fact that they were not speaking English and sadly I have to include the Americans in this as they too have lost the ability to speak English as well.
Whilst not being old enough to remember World War Two, I’m beginning to imagine how we must have felt; one tiny nation standing alone against the massed hoards gathering across the English Channel.
Whilst I’m tempted with the old war time idea of fighting them on the beaches I feel I may have more impact by not spending my hard earned money in France. I’m going to draw the line at digging up our railings for the Spitfire fund as I know last time they were not used, although a few pots and pans could be sacrificed.
When those of us that do take holidays in France band together and collectively refrain from doing so causing the enemy to weaken and finally capitulate and I hear the words; Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few, ringing in my ears. I shall be a happy man, I’ve always rather hankered after a DFC.
