Michael Caine is still a very patriotic Englishman and must still love his country.

He has stated that he wants Britain to leave the corrupt and horrible EU, which shows that he does have a wise head on his shoulders.

Not just a good actor but also a good and wise thinker. agree

He can have his door painted any colour he wishes, and he may well have a red door, but I can assure you that he is not one of the loony lefty idiots that now swamp British politicts.

Like myself, Maurice Micklewhite was born into a working class family and educated in the time before the interfering marxists took over and created the daft generation of the 60's, and this once great country has gone downhill ever since, I am sure that Keir Hardie would be turning (nay spinning), in his grave if he could see the marxist mess that his creation has become.

'Not a lot of people know that' may well be Michael's catch phrase, however, if we don't get out of the awful EU, then this once great country and its indigenous people are doomed, and I am sure that 'a lot of people know that'.

Now, talking about indigenous people, could it be that Mickelwhite (Mickelthwaite) is Viking in origin from that Europe place?

Hi Steve.

The surname Micklewhite might well have derived from a viking name, there might have been some wounded vikings left behind and survived after they were thrashed by the English at Stamford Bridge.

Let's see, (Micklethwaite), mickle meaning great, big, and over time the thwiate became twite, which (again over time), twite became white and the name became micklewhite, and that would mean (Great White).

Nothing against Europe, it's the horrible EU that I and many others like Michael Caine and the ones with common sense, who can see that we and our future generations are doomed if we don't get out. Anyone who votes to keep in this stupid, idiotic and unelected corrupt NWO club should be taken to the nearest mental institution for treatment, or (along with Merkel and her ilk), put against a wall and shot to put them out of their lunatic misery.

I am glad Michael Caine is firmly backing the out campaign, it shows he has got some of the little grey cells which are sadly lacking nowadays in the younger generations.

I can see what you are hinting at Steve, that the indigenous people are actually a bunch of mongrels, however, I think you will find that the horrible EU and the lunatic Merkel were not around at the time.

You also seem to forget that long before Britain became an island, it was connected to Europe by a land bridge and people could come and go as they pleased. After the land bridge was drowned by water, it is obvious that the people left on Britain (The Britons), became isolated from the rest of their 'cousins' in western europe, however, they were basically the same people, and over the years they developed independently from one another and formed their own ways and languages. Many years past, and when people from western europe came to Britain it should have been more like a long lost family re-union, however, some came with peaceful intent while others had different ideas, and this led to conflict. Many of the original Britons moved over towards the western side of Britain and settled there, that is why the true original Britons all come from the area from the south of Strathclyde and all down the western side of England and down to Cornwall.

In time of course, the wealach gave the name to what we now call the welsh, the Irish tribe from the Dalriada became the scots, and the anglo saxons gave the name to what we now call the English, however, a great thing about all this is the matter of fact that DNA researchers have found that the 'English' DNA has most of the original hunter gatherers DNA of the ancient Britons, more than any other people of Britain, not bad eh for a bunch of Heinz 57 mongrels.

We were, are, and will always be, the real and true people of this once great country, that through stupidity and loony lefty ideas, is sinking faster than the Titanic, and if nothing is done about it soon, then our children, our grandchildren and their children are going to suffer unbearably under the rule of a totally ruthless cult.

I am totally with Michael Caine on this, he is correct in what he has said, and it is good to have him on Britains side.

Apparently Michael Caine wasn't very happy when they painted his door red, he had only asked the painters to sand his door down and then remove the dust by 'Blowing the bloody door off'.

Blowing a couple of van doors off or a front door off can easily be put right, however, the stupidity of blowing the bloody floodgates off causes an unwanted flood which can take ages to put right, and I, and many, many others only hope that the floodgates can be re-built as soon as possible to stop the tide coming in and destroying us all.

Hey waterloo, I have just noticed your age mate (100), my word, you must age a lot faster than the rest of us, did you get your telegram off HM the Queen? agree

I was altering some info in my profile and I noticed that it's not possible to enter your age as 100, question is,  how did I do it?
Another 47 years to go before I see a telegram. Salute
