Sky News sent a reporter to South Africa to see how dangerous it is ahead of the world cup.

He was mortified :

Thought Leader Michael Trapido Sky News report on Jo'burg an outrage requiring a response (http://www.thoughtleader.co.za/traps/2007/12/01/sky-news-report-on-johannesburg-an-outrage-requiring-a-response/)

That's our response :)

If by some Keira-Knightley-slim chance England win this, I will actually leave the country. As my brother's MSN screen-name says: "ENGLAND YOU ARE CRAP. DISENGAGE FROM THE FOOTBALLING SUPERPOWER MINDSET ALREADY." If 1966 is repeated then England will be gloating well into the future, when football is actually played with our cybernetically enhanced telepathy-capable brains and not the feet.

New Hampshire sounds nice. Do they need high-school English teachers?

New Hampshire is as much like Hampshire as New York is the spitting image of York.:eek:

I didn't mind Hampshire when I visited at the grand age of about nine, but I didn't have that particular comparison in mind. :tongue: More like the Live Free or Die mentality along with the New English heritage.

"Colonel"?

I'm honoured - When I served two years in our artillery I was a bombardier who trained officers on course during my second year.

First year I did officers course.

Artillery School in Potchefstroom 1982/3

the next world cup should be quite intresting,the football hooligans there make the supporters from Millwall or Roma look like boy scouts ,its not the security in the ground i am worried about ,but if any of you have been to the waterfront in cape town can any of you imagine Italian supporters and lets say england supporters sitting in the same pub drinking ,i can,t thats why i a and always will be an ex player and a supporter of the real beautifull game

We don't have time to sit in aircon trucks - As soon as we fired on a target we had to pack up and move - or eat the shells coming back at us.

Even then they plotted where those incomings were coming from
in a matter of minutes.

Michael,

I'm failing badly at trying to put you at ease. I'm retired and my rank is only used here when trying to portray certain aspects of my job. There are few posters here senior in rank than me, most notably the good Brigadier Ray of the Indian Army.

The only thing I can fault you on vis-a-vi rank is that ... you don't know a good single malt scotch.

You put me at ease from day 1 - But an officer still doesn't earn his pay :)

Pari the Baa Baas was a funday game.

Soutie - for the uninitiated is the Afrikaans name for an Englishman in the army. He has one foot in South Africa one foot in England and his "piel"(guess) hangs in the sea which is salty hence - Sout (salty) Piel.
