Yes I know this is childish, but if we didn't get so much fun out of winding up the English we would stop doing it, wouldn't we?

It's that time of the year again for Australians to play havoc with an online vote. This time around its being conducted by the London Development Agency who want the public to name the new bridge which will lead up to The new Wembley Stadium.

Go onto this link and vote for the name of the new Wembley Pedestrian Bridge to be "The John Eales Bridge"

Link is here

Pass this on to everyone!!

Do your best!
Cheers,

Ivan

Will "skippy" - "not british" fit the bill.

And I haven't even been drinking either.

Silly POMS

I know. I voted and forwarded the email :-)

Would be funny if this gets a mention on their website when the votes are tallied.

Ivan,

Reluctantly voted for it... although "Tana Umanga Bridge" (yeh yeh, expat Kiwi, love sheep and all that stuff) was my personal choice, but then I wouldn't feel comfortable asking you the the following question...

I'm driving the same rig as your good self and was looking at some Tough Dog suspension. Did you look at this gear before making your decision???

Cheers,

Chaba.

Mate,

Never looked at Toughdog... - tried OME for six months, and then rode in GO_OFFROAD's 90 series. (Lovells/Bilsteins)

After that, I didn't want to try anything else (because they would have been an 'unknown', whereas the L&B were a 'known' quantity.

Very happy

I have tentatively named it Rugby World Cup 2003, since references to the Bledisloe, Tri-Nations or Calcutta Cup would be as pointless to Wembley as they are to the ARU.

For Oz comedy value, I'd suggest Campo would be a far funnier name for it. Also, Wembley is the home of soccer, not rugby so the whole gag will be lost on their intellect anyway.

That should stir the pot in the other direction.

Now now you colonial types. Leave our bridge alone or we might send Camilla to live over here to get even.

you can get every ocker in the world to send in John Eales' name but not many people would know who he is. England winning the World Cup may have lifted Rugby's profile over there but a real "footballer" (as opposed to an egg-chaser) is more likely to get the accolade. Rugby is and always will be a minority sport compared with football

You had me confused where you talk about football - but then I realised you mean soccer ;-)
