Granted, it’s a very long time since I have lived in the UK and perhaps I have missed something during my years travelling and living in Majorca. But the fabric of the UK appears to have changed. And before I get accused of ‘being all right jack the sun shines all year’, I didn’t come here for the sun. Far from it.

So, when I see the captain of England’s cricket team saying he is proud in defeat, I just don’t get it. I would be totally ashamed and embarrassed. This was not some Sunday league pub match. It was The Ashes. Coming good at the end, that’s no good. England should have gone Down Under already prepared. You certainly would not get that kind of comment from England’s rugby players.

Why is the UK quite happy to be browbeaten? If you want another example, take Brexit.

The lowly standards of Mr. Moore unfortunately seem to be affecting Mr. Carter.

It’s called staying positive and moving on, which is a bit like Brexit and the sooner we move on and leave the EU, the better for the UK in the long run. (Not a pun).

You seem to have forgotten that you once stated in the MDB that the UK is not your country yet you are now an expert on the England cricket team despite not having lived in the UK for many years and perhaps you would care to explain just what cricket has to do with brexit.?

It's just a game and what has brexit to do with cricket.? We will be far better of out of the corrupt EU and we won't be browbeaten by the EU.
