Yup. I am also in Berkshire County often. My firm has an office there, and we pay a lot of UK taxes. Surely we can have an opinion about it.
Berkshire County indeed?

Well, your opinion is vital, then! I beg forgiveness for my impertinence, Your Excellency!

No, that was Franco, who took Spain from GMT into Berlin time as a token for his admiration of Hitler, and none of its successors have dared turn back that particular clock despite the time zone being totally unnatural for the location.



Teddy Heath did not take anybody into the EU as the EU hadn't been invented yet. We were a nation of shopkeepers and we were told it was a trade club (of which we approved). That's how we've been trying to keep it ever since. We never wanted a Euro emperor, Corsican, Austrian or Belgian, as our own German monarchy is quite enough.

Nobody forced the Brits to adopt the HANNOVER-folks and the SACHSEN-COBURG-GOTHA Folks and the BATTENBERGER as monarchs. The trade-Club trading originally as Montan-Union and later as EEC is simply the EU in its old guise. In other words, Teddy Heath DID take the UK into the Club Napoleon
