There is no argument that the UK is a monarchy, clown. You've argued with yourself over that for months because certainly no one else had argued with you over it.

The US is still more religious, though. Hahahahahaha.

Funny how you can insist that the Wright brothers INVENTED the aeroplane yet they are not acknowledged as being INVENTORS of the aeroplane anywhere outside the US media hype, their patent makes no such claim, they themselves made no such claim.

Yet you deny documented facts that are accepted even in the US. How strange.

Let be know when you stop spouting syphilitic BS. I suggest you go to your local SDI clinic, I am told that antibiotics can be particularly effective. True they can’t repair the brain damage already done but they will prevent more damage occurring.

Yes we know, we have already agreed that, the disagreement is who gets the sun first, the UK which is in the east of the US, or the US which is a few hours later

How many times must you be asked to educate yourself and look up the definition or INVENTED

That is one thing we can be thankful for you obese T\/\/AT and you are welcome to say whatever you like and rant and rave and stamp you feet in frustration, that of course does not mean what you say is correct or even remotely accurate

In boom years.
Tell us: did you skip over the part which described how the plane got into the air and how the "profits" came before they paid back the government's cut?
"Why is Concorde being retired?
It is all down to cost: the Airlines are not making back the money spent on the safety modifications and other upgrades. With some other big costs coming up (tens of millions, before any life extension programme), BA need to write off £84M now, rather than £150M in 3 or 4 years. Air France will write off a large sum of money too. "
Nope if you rack your syphilitic addled brain and try to remember that I did actually mention the development costs and the benefit the Britain, France and eventually Europe as a whole.

Forget the cherry picking that you think you excel at, I will repeat the facts

“British Airways reportedly received £1.75 Billion in revenue for Concorde services against an operating cost of around £1 Billion. Air France made a much smaller profit”

FYI, that’s three quarters of a billion gross profit

Yes things have moved on and it is no longer cost effective after 27 years in commercial service

You denial is purely jingoistic: note your long list of other (ridiculous) claims.

All taxpayers in the UK (and France)paid for the Concorde flights whether or not they ever sat in the seat.
Wrong, again

Hey every one barfy butt face is wrong again, are we surprised?

UK and French taxpayers paid for the “development” of Concorde that helped to bind Europe in to what it is today. Many people think is was money well spent but I can understand how a yank can get the huff that Europe is bigger than the US with more land mass and more than twice the population. You will also notice that European currency € has remained particularly strong against the dollar by an average of 20% stronger than 10 years ago and particularly strong at over 35% just after the US bankers caused the world economic meltdown.

Concorde passengers paid for their flights and created an operating profit for two commercial concerns. After all they are commercial concerns and like commercial concerns everywhere would drop a hot potato like something hot, particularly if Concorde made the losses that US media back stabbing rants about.
