    I think Norway remains outside the EU - which means, according to the arguments advanced in 1975, that it should by now be starving or overrun by the Russians.

    I love it!!!

    To paraphrase a diarist of the American Civil war period, men who saw the rise of the Eurozone may well live to see its fall!!

    Jordan - you're welcome. if you have any other questions about the Queen, her family or the UK monarchy, just ask. Royal history is another interest of mine.

      Phil, about a year ago I came across a little book about a man who bought the island of Lundy, and minted his own coins, with his head on them. He didn't get away with it, of course, but they dealt with him very gently.

          Jordan Not really the thread to answer your question in JtR suspects. I set out my stall in a recent thread asking posters to nominate their three top candidates. I responded in some detail.

          I've been interested in Jtr since the early 1960s and I suppose I have latched onto most of the suspects at one time or another (including Druitt, the "Knight" conspiracy, for a while, and Kosminski - though I have ALWAYS thought the "diary" an obvious forgery.

          However, I have recently added Charles Cross to the list having read a couple of deeply fascinating dissertations here.

          These people appear from time to time - a lot depnds on the national offshore limit. Most of them are harmless eccentrics with more money than sense!

          (Come to think of it they might have royal genes on that basis!!)

            Hey Phil,
            Maybe then you could direct me to the post where you discussed the suspects that would be great.
            Nice chatting with you

              Jordan:

              I think this is the link:

              http://forum.casebook.org/showthread.php?t=4666

              It can be found - unsurprisingly - under Suspects: General Discussion.

              Happy to help,

              Phil

                  What do the Royal Family do? Thats a very good question.. Erm...well...erm sometimes they open things, when they can spare the time from jetting round the world at taxpayers expense, or deciding which of the royal residences to live in this week, that must take a lot of time. Strange how we can't afford to fix leaking school roofs but can afford to keep our German/Greek royal family in luxury.

                  Still can always rely on Phil the Greek for a politically incorrect chuckle.

                  Oh hang on theres a beefeater at the door wants to know if I will accompany him to the tower, funny you think he'd know the way by now.

                    How very witty, Brummie! Oscar Wilde reborn! Noel Coward manquee!!

                    Is that based on the vacuuity of your own life experience, or on inner knowledge?

                      The word you struggle for is VACUITY.

                      Still, your attempt isn't too bad for your average civil-servant, I suppose.

                        There was an Oscar Wilde remark, made while standing on a miserable, rainswept railway platform while handcuffed to a warder :

                        "If this is the way the Queen treats her prisoners, she doesn't deserve to have any."

                                Couldn't agree more, Jordan. This thread is entertaining and was jogging along nicely, but posts such as #24 above are neither entertaining, necessary nor indeed remotely funny.
