Information for UK walkers

Postby Lophophaps » Fri 08 Aug, 2014 10:33 am

European Union Directive No. 456179
In order to bring about further integration with the single European currency, the Euro, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase "Spending a Penny" is not to be used after 31 December 2014. From this date onwards, the correct term will be: "Euronating" .

It is hoped that this will be a great relief to everyone.

Durks, what do expect from a Sassenach? Accurracy? Lindsay, LOL. For information, as they were sinking in the bog there was a show of hands. One person could not swim but he went through the motions.
