The Scottish invasion? What does that mean?

Postby Ray » Sun Apr 13, 2008 10:45 pm

I moved to Crete from Scotland after living for nearly twenty years in Glenmoriston, just six miles from Loch Ness side on the road to Skye. Before that I lived in Wales, England, Crete and France.

I was born in London in England and when I was younger I was proud of that. Now I am not so sure since moronic liberals have for years berated my heritage and now say they are multicultural, the morons. Now in the UK we are smashed by stupid taxes that mark the global warming of the planet and everything else that the 'intellectuals' are scared of - such as nice cars, good housing and a pretty reasonable standard of living. No, they say that we should all be eating organic food flown from god knows where, pay phenomenal taxes and never have a drink. I curse the lot of them. That is not why I moved to Crete, but it is certainly why I will stay here until I pop my clogs.

Goddamn them all.

Oh dear Ray! Hope this is a late night rant this is not like you. Was Mrs Thatcher a Moronic liberal?Do you still pay tax in the UK?Just chill out.Thought you were one of the original hippies here, have I got that wrong? you seem to have lost your sense of humour just chill out and enjoy whats left of your life.Your English heritage is no more berated than the cretan heritage is by the younger cretans of today ,it will still shine through in one way or another.My partner is Scots but he does not keep banging on about it.You seem to have travelled and worked in Europe so maybe you are the multicultural example.
Apparently there is someone here from my home town of Poole in Dorset so perhaps there is a Dorset invasion going on as well.we will all make you wear smocks and sing songs about linden trees.The ladies will make buttons and the men will morris dance most evenings and drink scrumpy, hows that for heritage,and read Thomas Hardy poems which will probably make you want to commit suicide

Ray, Latsida,

I thought the question was "the Scottish invasion , what does that mean".

Having read what your posts said i didnt see any answers or thoughts on it, maybe its the 10 pints of the black nectar i supped at the weekend. So i will read it again :lol:

Everyone is proud of their heritage for whatever reason, i to have travelled and worked all over Europe and take things with a pinch of salt.

The term i used in my posts was used to me by another member in a previous post and it just continued from that, so i hope that answers your question.
My beloved is Yorkshire and i am a Glaswegian and we are both proud of what and who we are.
Oh and so you know the wall in Istron is being built by the locals to stop said invasion :lol: :lol: :lol:

The invasion continues :twisted: Jim :lol:
whats for you wont go by you

the Scottish invasion started as a (tongue in cheek) knock on from global warming (sorry climate change) and the Gulf Stream slowing and stopping thus ceasing to warm Scotland and bring on a new Ice Age there and causing mass migration. Andheath was the forerunner of said invasion with instructions to renovate old properties etc. ready for the gradual increase in Scottish relocaters (I think I just made that word up).

Fortunately this plan was sussed early on and RIC was charged with building a second Hadrians Wall at Istron. (we told him it would be forever known as RIC's Wall to get him to start) Well it was going fine until the wall got a bit higher and John did himself a bit of damage lifting some of those stones to the higher parts of the wall. I am told that his new custom made, fur lined, truss is almost completed and that Pickfords (or white van man) should be delivering it soon and so we will be back on track.....ooops wasn't supposed to mention the truss.

hope this helps

Hi Latsida,

Ah a nice comforting late night rant. Why not? Margaret Thatcher was not a liberal, moronic or not. I hated her then because I will still in a socialist family. Stuff like the poll tax which in fact we would have approved of when we lived in Scotland, stuff like making Britain work, even reducing the toll of social security, stuff we thought as madness. Oh dream on, we need that now.

But like all socialists (not that I was one but Dad was . . .) we had to hate her.. Roll on the new labour government. But it wasn't was it? It was new labour and what the heck was that? We soon found out and are living in hell to this day.

And with it all came the political correctness. I won't labour on, so to speak, but just now they refused to kick out Abu Quatadar or whatever his name is in case he may be tortured in Jordan. I don't even know why I watch the news but 'er indoors seems addicted to it. Abu whatsisname is the right hand man to Al Quaida and has personally recruited many young men in the UK to Islam's cause. How badly do we need that?

Jimbolou

There are no answers or thoughts on it. It is complete bollox. I spell it this way in order to get around the monster life decrunching software that this forum contains. The black nectar you supped will probably poison you, but who cares?

Paul

What the phuque has the scottish invasion to do with climate change. Climate is always changing and with luck, always will. God preserve us from the morons that promote the indefensible global warming and tax us till we are stuffed to death with their bollox. See that spelling again, ah well. As for John, who cares if his muscles creak, they are supposed to creak, someone willed it.

I still note that no-one mentioned the screamingly quiet moronic liberals that seem to be running our lives and government and our pensions.

Especially our pensions.

Goddamn them all.

He He, and I know that just as Andy is lurking here on our forum, the Scottish Nationalists are a complete example on how to totally destroy a country. Just wait and see. I will laugh my head off. Alex Salmond is faintly credible. The rest of them are raving non deciders.

a quick answer for you Ray

global warming (if it is happening) means more rain and melt ice in the Arctic thus diluting the salination of the water. Thus it doesn't sink and the conveyor that causes the Gulf Stream movement stops. Scotland gets severely colder. Because of the "go commando" habit of the Scots (described in other threads) this could lead to severe problems right where you don't want problems. So there is a secret plan for a mass exodus from Scotland to Crete.

Subsequently a new solution has emerged where all the salt from the desalination plant in Porto Sidero is collected and shipped to the Arctic where it is dumped to keep the conveyor going thus rendering the exodus to Crete unneccessary. Thus it is golf which provides the solution to a problem for the home of golf. Neat.

disclaimer. as with Andheath, just because I write something does not mean I am writing truthfully.

Oh and there is a one liner generalisation in the middle somewhere of Captain Correlli's Mandolin about Greek youth being politically far Left then steadily moving to the far Right by the end of their lives. Your words reminded me of that Ray

ANDI is athina ray but is question you for him so emails is to gjon for copy pastes.

Ray I think you miss any point I have ever made on the subject:

First I don't think I have ever criticized the UK, standards, government, crime or anything in fact. If I have it was a mistake. I still think the UK is probably the best country in Europe. I did not leave for any, bitter, narrow minded, twisted idealogical reasons and I don't need any of that crap to justify my decision to live in Crete.

Second. My sole point on Scottish Nationalism is this: in a Democratic society it is the peoples right to choose. If a majority of the Scottish population vote for self governance then that is that, it cannot be denied. Alex Salmon does not matter. It does not matter if we think the SNP will ruin the country, that is not the point. Furthermore if a newly independent Scottish Nation decided to call itself Macedonia they should have every right to do so. That is democracy.
This Cretan Adventure thing is way beyond a joke.

Hi Andy,

You know, much as I love your prose, I feel that you are speaking out of your aarse for 98% of the time.

You know phuque all about the world in which you live. That is not a bad thing, almost 80% of the rest feel the same way.

Life is crap, Crete is a release.

Gjon,
if you are still at Andy's place after the dust cloud, as advised by Ray, passes over do you think you can spare some time to wash my car? How much is the going rate for a small(ish) car?
