Just seen on itv news,   English land owners are to donate hundreds of British Oak tree's to the French, to be used in the rebuilding of their Cathedral  ! What a joke after how they have treated us. Don't they have any of their own ?

I think it's a wonderful gesture, and if it shows up the French as British despising , then all the better. That place is a heritage site and belongs to us all.

A billion Euros raised already to fund THE rebuild.
You can absolutely GUARANTEE that some capitalist tax dodging crooks will siphon off some of that to feather their own nest eggs.

Only an idiot would take a poor view from where people look to help here

No doubt the same people that often give to charity

The factr you make this about politics, says everything about you Andy

Why not see this as it is?

People giving for what they see as a symbol of France and its heritage

I know that means fuck all to you, being the pathetic communist that you are. That you only want to make some bullshit political point on this

At least I made humour here, but, you have to make some commie bullshit point

Thanks for the red, you pathetic low life commine  Laughing Laughing

I take that as a scar of charm

The reality is, the many people who have donated, do so for the poor

What have you done. That even comes close to what they give, you selfish middle class soclaist champange tosser andy?

You are such a low life commie, that you care less about the poor and homeless, but to use, them to promote your irrational socialist bullshit

So bring on the reds, you commie... Laughing

And another 2 bite the NF forum dust. Geli and Didge himself.

I agree raising funds to rebuild is worthy, I simply pointed out that there WILL be some to abuse the system for personal gain.

I don't like the idea of fine English Oaks being cut down in this manner.

No he didn't. Are you suggesting that using Oak to rebuild the damaged Cathedral will help the poor and homeless?

Yes, he was wrong. There was nothing wrong with what you said, but he seems to think you said something completely different.

Really, as where is the evidence for his claim that people will abuse this for their own gain?

It's not just a hate relationship, it's a love-hate affair.
The history of the two countries is very intimately intertwined and goes back centuries. 
French Hugenots fled in numbers to Britain when they were persecuted. Their descendants are still here. 
''Entente cordiale'' is not heard much in these EU-phobic days, but its ghost remains.

I'd like to know how Oak beams 2ft thick burned through ? Oak is a very dense wood and close grained, it might char around an inch or so deep. No way it would burn through in several hours !

Are you kidding me?

How old was this wood and how dry was it?

Old oak makes for excellent fire fuel mate
