    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    just think you ****s are making this out to be worse than it is, imo foreign policy and abbott's work overseas has probably been the strength of their tenure so far

    Mr Abbott told the Times: "What the Scots do is a matter for the Scots and not for a moment do I presume to tell Scottish voters which way they should vote.

    "But as a friend of Britain, as an observer from afar, it's hard to see how the world would be helped by an independent Scotland.

    "I think that the people who would like to see the break-up of the United Kingdom are not the friends of justice, the friends of freedom, and the countries that would cheer at the prospect... are not the countries whose company one would like to keep."

    BBC News - Scottish independence: Australian PM Tony Abbott's comments 'offensive'
    I don't think that Tony Abbot's comments are outrageous at all. In fact, for all the fuss that Alex Salmond has created it seems like that he is the knee-jerk politician prone to gaff like hyperbole. However, I wouldn't expect much different from a leader of insular minded people contemplating a vote in favour of reverse racism.
    “I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”

    no it's the "I think that the people who would like to see the break-up of the United Kingdom are not the friends of justice, the friends of freedom, and the countries that would cheer at the prospect... are not the countries whose company one would like to keep." thing.

    Yet another minority with an enormous chip on their shoulder over.

    Did we mention the Balkans per chance? Another bastion of 'getting on'.

    if this were the 1990s we quite possibly do. What was the Friends Of Freedom point of view regarding Yugoslavia and the various 'minorities' it consisted of? German re-unification?

    Don't get me started on those Americans! Pesky buggers wanting their own independence. What do they think they are? A separate people? Pah! Everyone knows they're British through and through, and will remain so forever. An ocean cannot challenge the supremacy of the British identity!

    That'll be just great. A Civil War between the Federals and the Confederates just north of Gretna Green starting some time soon when Glasgow decides it doesn't want to be ruled by Edinburgh any more.

    Honestly, when does it all stop?
