Once done you will see what I have done to your's that I corrected up a few messages before you called Plavt a Russian :lol: ) You can do that with any message and then delete any portion of the text leaving the rest but always remember to have

[quote]
which will give you
or

Code: Select all

I can't tell whether you guys got my Russian joke or not ! I've certainly not met any Russians in this corner of the woods. But sms you'd mentioned your 'states' origin so I thought I'd have a bit of fun with the other poster's handle! Ooh that sounds a bit.... right ....mmmm....
Anyway, glad you enjoyed it and plavt I meant no offence. And any Russians reading this no offence that I'm apologising for my Russian-handle joke..God this is giving me a headache.....
Why am I on this site anyway- I could be doing something exciting like queuing at a taxi-rank or shopping in Mustafa's.

Oh yeah... this quoting thing....dear Lord save me from computers but I'm gonna try again. I will attempt to follow sms's latest, long-winded explanation. The first sentence of this post will be my next valiant attempt at public humiliation- again. And sms- don't give up your day-job.

I came to Singapore as a work transfer...did I have a choice? we all have a choice eh.
We came because it was financially more beneficial to us as a family and I could live here with everything paid by the company,luckily got my house rented out at home and it would be great experience for my son.
Will I go back....of course I will, UK is my home and bitching about it from here will change nothing.
I dont believe we pay nearly enough taxes in the UK, thats why the country 'doesn't work'.
We need more REAL taxes and more discipline to become 'GREAT BRITAIN' again.
Singapore is ok for a short time but in my heart I love and am passionate about Great Britain and would like to think one we can get some of the values and tolerances shown in society here.
