I wonder which is worse. The NHS or the HSE.

I have been thinking about you. Giving up is not the Irish way.
The banks get bailouts while entire industries are sold out.
I am looking forward to this coming back.

Quite a modern video by the look of it.
My Great Granddad was a boilermaker in the Sunderland shipyards turn of the century and as was custom his son (Granddad) followed suit but they all closed down. In 1936 he and my Grandma decided to march to London because they couldn't feed my Mum who was 3, (the Jarrow Marches https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jarrow_March ). Got as far as the Midlands and they were pretty much done for, having to carry Mum and with no food. Luckily in Bedworth in the Midlands someone took pity and got granddad a job as a blacksmith down a pit where the family settled....

Paul,
there was decline from their hey day but many ship yards were still functional when I started my apprenticeship in Gateshead at 16.

There is a lot of history there. I started watching videos of the yards along the Wear and the Tyne. I like people from both sides.
I got sucked into watching all this recent history and I must have lost at least 3 hours. LOL.

The landscape is completely changed along the Wear now.

The video is not available in the US! Pity, I really like that track, pretty funny. My favourite Geordie expression is "jaw-nee inta space" meaning a good Friday night out!

A journey into space sounds more like a magic mushroom episode to me than a "Friday Night on the Toon".

But your pronunciation was perfect.

The way Geordies pronounce "space" is not spellable phonetically as far as I can figure. I am a born and bread Mackam. We need a real Geordie to help us with that. They probably think they just say "space".

As an interesting little aside. I hope you can get this video. My Brother inlaws dad is one of the kids skipping and singing in this vidoe.

Coopz,

I cannot imagine the French cartoon industry being effected one way or the other.

and ironically the cartoon references the sea, and of course Brexit promises the prospect of a revitalied UK fishing industry and recovery for some of the fishing grounds. I'm hoping the UK will begin to import bananas from the West Indies again, and maybe there will be NZ lamb in the supermarkets, free from the huge tariffs imposed by the EU. And Canadian wheat.....

Thank you 2 Doggs.
NZ lamb, ... there is non better as far as I am concerned !

Great!
the intention of Broke Dad who started this thread, was a celebration of the moment of Brexit.
