Good call...

The picture of the document was taken by the freelance photographer Steve Back, who specialises in spotting secret documents carried openly by officials entering Downing Street. The document was in the hands of an unnamed official attending a meeting of the national security council (NSC) called by the prime minister to discuss the Ukrainian crisis.

The document said Britain should:

"Not support, for now, trade sanctions … or close London's financial centre to Russians."
Cameron and Hague, they'll huff and they'll puff and they'll roll out the red carpets.

What a pair of limp dicks. Of course Lord Halifax was also a Yorkshireman.

What is ironic in the extreme is that this pair wanted UK involvement in the war in Syria, a war that would have been hellish to win, involved the risk of direct confrontation with Russia and had utterly incalculable consequences even if the initial military campaign had succeeded, due to the vast numbers of disparate ethnic groups involved.

Never mind about international affairs - think internally.
I just thought of how you could get to become ECF President and Carol CEO.
You and Carol join as Bronze members - if you have not already been forced to.
Then apply to be the two Bronze reps to the ECF.
(Or if you want to carry more weight upgrade to Silver class there are twp empty rep seats there too.)
That will at least get you ring-side seats at the Paulson-Short bout in April.
And, with ECF reps secret hidden powers yous can take it from there.
All manner of chances and opportunities will arise for you to climb the greasy pole.
With so many set to slide down the snakes while yous two climb the ladders you'll be tops within no time.

Hope he reads that when he gets back.
Afternoon All
I go straight to being President none of that toadying to various members of the board for me :wink: The ECF could not afford Carol shame as she would put them onto a sound business plan. I guess if i was made President then maybe Carol would help,

Weather good here sun is out so i I washed all the bath towels today and tonight it is Ham egg chips.
when you are successful many losers bark at you.

So your hands must be clean after all that washing, Peter.
That's a good thing for standing for any office.
Sorry you don't want to be Bronze/Silver reps.
You'd think someone would be interested with all that's going on.
Maybe I can downsize from Gold member?
