England's worst enemy is Saudi Arabia* - not Russia or China - and being an "ally" with the Saudi dictator family isn't an asset but a disaster in cooking.
* The Saudi "custodians of islam" are the world's main supporter of islamic terrorism, and the homeland and leader of the world's biggest Human Rights violating sharia organization OIC. England has repeatedly been attacked by Saudi sponsored and agitated muslim terrorists.
Macron also wants to borrow some English helicopters for killing muslims in Mali. Klevius thinks English helicopters aren't too busy right now.
An English army helicopter was reportedly yesterday seen hovering a few meters over some dog walkers and football players on a public park in southern England - for no particular reason.
Frank comes from the Germanic word for "javelin" (such as in Old English franca or Old Nordic frakka). Words in other Germanic languages also mean "fierce", "bold" or "insolent" (Old and modern Swedish fräck and frank, German frech, Middle Dutch vrac, Old English frǣc and Old Norwegian frakkr).
EU is historically a "pagan" Gothic/Viking project initiated by France. And the "British" seems to become a sharia muslim project against "pagan" Human Rights.

Christianity had been the official imperial religion of the Roman Empire, and the first churches were built in England in the second half of the fourth century, overseen by a hierarchy of bishops and priests. Many existing "pagan" (i.e. Celtic/Gothic/Viking) shrines were converted to Christian use and few "pagan" (i.e. Celtic/Gothic/Viking) sites still operated by the fifth century. The collapse of the Roman system in the late fifth century, however, brought about the end of formal Christian religion in the east of England, and the new Germanic immigrants (i.e. Gothic/Viking) arrived with their own polytheistic Nordic gods, including Woden, Thunor and Tiw, still reflected in various English place names. Some minor Christian communities still survived in more remote areas such as Gloucestershire and Somerset.
The movement towards Christianity began again in the late sixth and seventh centuries, helped by the Frankish Vikings (the Northmen) in Northern France, who carried considerable influence in England.
Gaul (from the Latin Gallia) was the ancient name for an area roughly equivalent to modern France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany west of the Rhine.
In the late 3rd century, "barbarian" (i.e. Goths or Northmens if you like) raids devastated Normandy. Coastal settlements were raided by Saxon "pirates"*. Christianity also began to enter the area during this period. In 406, Germanic tribes (Goths or Northmen if you like) began invading from the east, while the Saxons subjugated the Norman coast. The Romans withdrew from most of Normandy. As early as 487, the area between the River Somme and the River Loire came under the control of the Frankish (Goth or Northman if you like) lord Clovis.
* Klevius is puzzled about the use of the word 'pirate' because muslim pirates are never called that of some funny reason. Muslim pirates are instead called "conquerers", so Klevius politely resåects this but also wants to use it consequently about non-muslims as well.
The Franks (Latin: Franci or Latin: gens Francorum, from Old Swedish/Nordic/North-Germanic) were a collection of Germanic peoples (Goths), whose name was first mentioned in 3rd century Roman sources, associated with tribes on the Lower and Middle Rhine in the 3rd century AD, on the edge of the Roman Empire. Later the term is associated with Romanized Germanic (Gothic) dynasties within the collapsing Roman Empire, who eventually commanded most of Europe incl. the region between the rivers Loire and Rhine, and imposed power over many other post-Roman kingdoms and Germanic (Gothic) peoples, later being recognized by the Catholic church as successors to the old rulers of the Western Roman Empire.
Although the Frankish name only appears in the 3rd century, at least some of the original Frankish tribes had long been known under their own names to the Romans, both as allies providing soldiers, and as enemies. The new name first appears when the Romans and their allies were losing control of the Rhine region. The Franks were first reported as working together to raid into Roman territory, but from the beginning this was associated also with attacks upon them from outside their frontier area, for example by Saxons, and a desire by frontier tribes to move into Roman territory.
Known Frankish peoples inside the Roman Rhine river frontier were the Salian Franks who were permitted to live in Roman territory, and the Ripuarian or Rhineland Franks who, after many attempts, eventually conquered the Roman frontier city of Cologne and settled the left bank of the Rhine. Later, in a period of factional conflict all over Gaul in the 450s and 460s, Childeric I, a Frank, was one of several military leaders commanding Roman forces with various ethnic affiliations. Childeric and his son Clovis I faced competition from Aegidius and his son as competitors for the kingship of the Franks, and commanders of the Roman Loire forces. (According to Gregory of Tours, Aegidius held this kingship for 8 years while Childeric was in exile, while in contrast Gregory refers to his son Syagrius as "King of the Romans".) This new type of kingship, perhaps inspired by Alaric I, represents the start of the Merovingian dynasty, which succeeded in conquering most of Gaul in the 6th century, as well as establishing its leadership over all the Frankish kingdoms on the Rhine frontier. It was on the basis of this Merovingian empire that the resurgent Carolingians eventually came to be seen as the new Emperors of Western Europe in 800.
In the Middle Ages, the term Frank came to be used as a synonym for Western European, as the Carolingian Franks were rulers of most of Western Europe, and established a political order which was the basis of the European ancien regime that only ended with the French revolution. Western Europeans shared their allegiance to the Roman Catholic church and worked as allies in the Crusades beyond Europe in the Levant, where they still referred to themselves and the Principalities they established as Frankish. This has had a lasting impact on names for Western Europeans in many languages.
The Vikings started to raid the Seine valley during the 9th century. 841, a Viking fleet appeared at the mouth of the Seine, the principal route by which they entered the kingdom. After attacking and destroying monasteries, including one at Jumièges, they took advantage of the power vacuum created by the disintegration of Charlemagne's empire to take northern France. The fiefdom of Normandy was created for the Viking leader Hrólfr Ragnvaldsson, or Rollo (also known as Robert of Normandy). Rollo had besieged Paris but in 911 entered vassalage to the king of the West Franks, Charles the Simple, through the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte. In exchange for his homage and fealty, Rollo legally gained the territory which he and his Viking allies had previously conquered. The name "Normandy" reflects Rollo's Viking (i.e. "Norseman") origins.
The descendants of Rollo and his followers adopted the local Gallo-Romance language and intermarried with the area's original inhabitants. They became the Normans – a Norman-speaking mixture of Norsemen and indigenous Franks and Celts.
Rollo's descendant William the Conqeror, became king of England in 1066 after defeating Harold Godwinson, the last of the Anglo-Saxon kings, at the Battle of Hastings, while retaining the fiefdom of Normandy for himself and his descendants.
Besides the conquest of England and the subsequent subjugation of Wales and Ireland, the Normans expanded into other areas. Norman families, such as that of Tancred of Hauteville, Rainulf Drengot and Guimond de Moulins played important parts in the conquest of southern Italy and the Crusades against islamists.
The Drengot lineage, de Hauteville's sons William Iron Arm, Drogo, and Humphrey, Robert Guiscard and Roger the Great Count progressively claimed territories in southern Italy until founding the Kingdom of Sicily in 1130. They also carved out a place for themselves and their descendants in Asia Minor and the "Holy Land" that had been raped by muslims.
The 14th century explorer Jean de Béthencourt established a kingdom in the Canary Islands in 1404.He received the title King of the Canary Islands from Pope Innocent VII but recognised Henry III of Castile as his overlord, who had provided him aid during the conquest.
