    Is 'Little Englander' really a derisory term used by Germans about us?

    After the several kickings you have given me on the issues of rationality and free-will I am merely, and, I suppose, somewhat cheekily, pointing out that you are working from the basis that people are emotional and react on the basis of emotionality rather than Smith's rational self-service. Not that I am casting up, you understand.

    Well apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the EU ever done for us?

    Some of them were the Romans, who were a bit stroppier than Jean Claude.

    When you say "we", I take it you include the:

    Welsh, Scottish, Irish, French, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Czechoslovak, Soviet, Indian, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, South African,......... ?

    You previously wrote: Would little Englanders (a German form of derision before we 'twice' kicked their behinds)

    I questioned your use of "we".

    But I see you are incapable of remembering your own witterings for even a day.

    Your deflection is noted and to clarify, I merely pointed out your glaring and very telling omission.
