I imagine there would be a 'hard border' for all of this repugnant rubbish, in the deep West Winchester,..at the principality!?

More information please,..?..Woopyang?It doesn't seem like much is going to impede the progress west across the top end for Bufo Marinus(cane toad).

Agreed on the BCF,...very poor show in my view.A similar regular television performance from a national car insurer lost one customer for them that I know of.

It was embarrassing to me, with my kids watching the drew carry show way back when. I walked out of the room. "I can't handle this."
Out to the office I went.
I'd hate to explain that van's message to my grandkids. I'd be the one that would have to. Maw? No. Daughter? No.
Ask Grandpa. Oh thanks.
Oh trust me. The gubment would love to know the very few arms I have here and they try to stifle freedoms every day.
Usually with the media.
Sorry fellas. This is your place. I happened upon it and wanted to share my two shillings from afar. Oh, wait. Shillings?

It wouldn't be out of place here yet Duey to "share your '2 Bobs' worth"(" my $.02 US").
1 Bob = 1 shilling up until 14 Feb '66.The saying is still in fashion today.

Nothing wrong with joining in discussion on an international forum Duey, I personally just took issue with the fact the poster used the topic to simply say "ONLY USA FREE, EVERYTHING ELSE BAD GULAG COMMUNISM" and add nothing of value to the actual subject of discussion.

After all, on other, US-centric forums I enjoy having my 2c on some US-exclusive issues. (and normally get dog piled on for my troubles, but that's to be expected when you go to cheer for Team A in places mostly full of Team B supporters)

Also don't forget what the meaning behind your previous name on here too. It was not until it was mentioned (it's meaning) that I had heard of it, so just be patient please.

Yes I was thinking it was rather ironic that "Winchester Goose" was the op on this thread

Hello all
Huh???? . If your going to quote Alex at least get it right or are you saying we should not be constantly learning?
"A little learning is a dang'rous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again."

That passage basically means a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. It intoxicates, or clouds, the brain.
If we 'drink deeper' we'll gain more knowledge and we should realise we know didly squat. "Drink deep, or taste not".....or as put by an uncle of mine...keep your trap shut otherwise we'll all know your a smart @rse (or dumb as dog sh!t, pending on who he was referring to).

But anyways back to the original problem of slogans on vans. I personally don't find it offensive. I put it down to reality. I will admit some of their slogans do not belong on the outside of a camper van.
If you find it offensive then report it to your local members. While your at it report the TV shows, songs and everything else that you would find offensive if that slogan is offensive.
I remember an ad on the wireless in the 80's. "Ladies. Would you like something big, red, hot and throbbing between your legs? Then buy a Honda Nifty 50". That ad didn't last long. I thought it was funny.

Cheers then
Scott

Hello all.
It gives a whole new meaning to "I'm off to get a spotted dick from the poxy whore' doesn't it.
Before people go off....a spotted dick is a pommy pudding.

Cheers Scott

Well Winchester one aspect observed around these parts is these garish vans certainly attract a great deal of attention and usually from local law enforcement who swiftly do a search and usually find illegal and dangerous substances on board much to the dismay of the millennial morons whom are usually totally befuddled as for the reason why they were pulled over by the local law, not the sharpest tool in the shed the clowns that drive those vans.

Yes well it does appear that the majority of these offensive vans originate in Queensland. The occupants seem to be itinerant wanderers, mainly from overseas who as I previously made the observation are most unlikely to understand the objectionable scribe on the sides and rear of these vehicles. I must say that there has been a distinct absence of the offending vans in recent times. Again dare I say it but the vastness of the Nullabor Plain may be the reason.
Yes the hills of sweet smelling Lavender of the Principality invite me forth. I shall revisit soon and have a audience with Prince Graham.

I think you're selling the European holiday workers a little short there, I've worked with many of them and spoken to dozens of them on the road and generally their English is as good as most Australians.
