YAY! Geordie money. Which, once we have the Kingdom of Northumbria up and running again, we can adopt as our official gelt.

Hmmm.How about a NewLinks revolution to reclaim Northumbria for the people? We could put God(Alan Shearer)on our £20 quid notes and stuff.

We're actually going to reinstate the entire country of North of the Humber Land, not just the Tyne and (you know) bit... we're reclaiming the lot. And we'll rule it from that island in the middle of the Tyne. Cool. ;)

mmChronic said...

The Northumbrian Liberation Front has 3 major demands.

1) Ancient Northumberland stretched from the Humber to Edinburgh and across to cover a lot of the Pennines/Lake district. We want that lot back.
2) We also want the Lindisfarne Gospels back. Thieving cockney fsckers.
3) Last and most definitely not least we want the Thatchbitch's head on a stick.

We will of course be putting King Alan I's face on every bit of money we produce.

Apart from the fiver. That'll have a big picture of my arse on it.

mmChronic said...

Arf arf...

Of course if it is to be to scale it should be on a 5 squillion pound note rather than a fiver. You are bariatric AICMFP! ;)

When we rule we will send the great unwashed back to Mongolia?

ILuvNUFC said...

Not quite sure where the "?" came from.
Doh!

bungers said...

That must've been a rhetorical question then... PARP!

ILuvNUFC said...

Erm... Yeh, that's right.

mmChronic said...

Or one of those interrogative statements or whatever they are called that we in the UK seem to be picking up from Australian/Californian TV. The ones where the sentence rises in tone towards the end but without actually asking a question? Like that? ILN obviously watches too much Neighbours?

As for sending the mackems to Mongolia - I would just use them as target practice for the Toon Army which would be the 1st Northumbrian regiment raised come the revolution.

Dogs said...

Greetings chaps. Just recovering from stag do exploits with a bunch of ex army lads. All brick netty types but to a man all jolly good professionals who deplore the gung ho attitude and lack of professionalism of the yanks. Which reminds me of a story I caught a glimpse of..some British officer suggesting to the yanks that they could solve their Bagdhad prison overcrowding problem by "doing the decent thing" and letting a few of the innocent prisoners go. To which the yanks replied "Who asked you?".

bungers said...

:lol:

mmChronic said...

Still doesn't work! :)

So how did Dogs end up on an Army stag night? Are his 'disappearances' actually stints as a 'contractor' in Iraq?

Our Army can sneer at anyone for lack of professionalism as they are the best. Did anybody else see this?

I like the way that Scotland has suddenly become "one of us", and they are referred to as "our" troops all of a sudden!

Are you trying to score points and soften them up for when we integrate them into the North Humber Land Army...?

hahaha!

mmChronic said...

It may have escaped your notice but Scotland is part of Britain as we are currently so a Scottish regiment is 'ours'. Of course when we establish a separate Northumbrian state things will change.

It may be that that regiment comes from an area of ancient Northumbria anyway but I don't think so.

My point was about the professionalism originally though - these blokes went into mortar positions with bayonets. There wouldn't have been much 'collateral damage' as there would have been if, say for example, the USAF had fired several missiles at them from a distance of 20 miles or so.

bungers said...

Re: Old part of Northumbria :lol:

Re: Collateral damage: nice point, well made..! Is our theme for today Football and Serious to distance ourselves from all the medical stories yesterday..? ;)

mmChronic said...

Yay for football. Dunno about the serious - that only tends to happen when one of us goes off on one! :)

To continue our footy coverage: Apparently there was some sort of game between 2 cockney teams at the weekend and one of the cockney teams won. I fscking hate summer. :(
