I thought Philomena Cunk pointed out that the vikings came over to visit the Jorvik Viking Centre in York?

I was pretty sure that you knew that. Or rather entirely certain. I really should have added a winking smiley to my post.

Although I wasn't just referring to the 'northern army'. I was also referring to the Norman Army since it contained other nationalities than Normans. It contained troops from all over France. Large part of it was from Brittany, or Flanders.

Anyway. It all was just a silly attempt at a joke.

A different take on the Arthurian legends. Not BBC but definitely British.

I'm British. Hence I can read the English statement "No discussing politics on our forums.".

If you have difficulty reading or understanding the rule, I can get it translated. Otherwise I'll consider this the end of the discussion.

"War is the continuation of politics by other means" Clausewitz.

This whole site and its money making proposition is based on war, and re-visiting it, and mimicking it, and what-if-ing it.


I started this thread so like a dog returns to its vomit I've looked at the posts and I find it hard to see why anybody is taking offence at anything that has been posted.

My sensors need re-programming.


Ok I admit in the BBC mockumentary clip I linked to the presenter, Philomena Cunk, calling the "Bayeaux Tapestry" the "Baywatch Tapestry" could offend me because Ivo de Taillebois was one of my ancestors who came over with William the Conqueror. But I survived the insult. :)

And if I were an animal lover I could be offended by dinosaurs being described as of two sorts - as seen in archive footage - as "the across ones; and the up and down ones that ate the across ones."

Or was it that people don't like burning fossil fuels because they think it means they are burning dinosaurs?

Nobody too offence to your post or the replies. A single poster attempted to inject politics into it. We disallow political discussion on the forums because it causes too much unpleasantness.

Cheers

Pip

I like the Cunk character. 'She' began on Charlie Brooker's shows and now has a show of 'her' own. I don't know if you have seen The Day Today which was made by the BBC in the 90s but if you like Cunk then you would probably like that also.
