As originally sung by The Supremes, but perhaps most famous when covered by the gorgeous Bananarama: Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye We’ll never love you, the way that you love you ‘Cause if we did, no no, we wouldn’t make you cry We might be thrillin’ baby but a-my love (my love, my love) So dog-gone willin’ So kiss us (I wanna see you kiss us, wanna see you kiss us) Go on and kiss us goodbye Na na na na, hey hey-hey, goodbye Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye Listen to me now We’re never near you to comfort and cheer you When all those sad tears are fallin’ baby from your eyes We might be thrillin’ baby but a-my love (my love, my love) So dog-gone willin’ So kiss us (I wanna see you kiss us. I wanna see you kiss us) Go on and kiss us goodbye Na-na na-na-na na na na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye Hey hey-hey, goodbye Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye Henry Crun March 29, 2017 at 9:41 am Tinkety Tonk Old Fruit and Down with the Nazis DuckyMcDuckface March 29, 2017 at 10:06 am Ahhh. Bananarama… Wasn’t one of them clean? Interested March 29, 2017 at 10:08 am Lunch? I suggest humble pie and sour grape gravy train, with bitternut squish, fresh garden piss and Brussels pouts. Juncker can do the booze.

I also understand the underlying panic those same people feel as their project starts to fall apart. Making a good deal difficult might shore it up in the short-term, but I am sure other countries which do not want to punish and which have their own doubts regardingn their future membership will take VERY good notice. I am prepared to put up with those short and medium-term problems to be free of a moribund, politically perverse, socially malignant and economically incompetent supranacional entity (for want of a better word).

Then I thought, but shouldn’t I get something else? Some NZ fizz, maybe something British. But, no. It should be vintage Champagne. Because it’s still the best IMO. Because this isn’t about us buying Champagne, or les Francais buying find shoes from Northampton or Germans and Spaniards trading BMWs and chorizo.

More like Motorhead – Brotherhood of Man: ‘You cannot hide the truth from me I know what’s in your heart, Greed and jealousy each equal, all your days now dark. Mighty mountains fall in dust the world falls into hell, Faith in lying prophets, no one to lift the spell.’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSodCuo73ig Flatcap Army March 29, 2017 at 2:26 pm eloquently summed up in this image https://twitter.com/MrSkipLicker/status/847017535354621954 Theophrastus March 29, 2017 at 5:02 pm BiW Vintage cava tends to be better than NV champagne, imo.
