Patriotism

A good thing or a bad.

Just before this topic a big hand to Plump who starred on Philosophy.

So this weeks topic

"Patriotism, the last refuge of a scoundrel." Samuel Johnston
of aarvark fame in Blackadder.

It has been said to cause wars, and certainly people use it to cover nefarious actions.

But is it bad or good. I have an opinion which I will give later, due to the fact I am the chef and a bottle of Crozes Hermitage is calling seductively to be opened and tasted.

A tout a l'heure

I’ve said to the wife many times since moving to Spain there are only three things I miss;

1. Birdseye Potato Waffles
2. McCain’s Hash Browns
3. English beer

I’ve even had all three together in the darkest regions of my misspent youth.

That can't be true, there's loads I miss. English humour, landscapes, good curry, M&S ready meals, driving on the left, good TV and lots more.
Of course if I came back I would miss some French things

Groundless.

Like so much of the weaknesses of humans.

Probably the only animal on this planet that constructs their individual psyche, and sometimes collective twattery, on ridiculous abstractions.
