Well done Bradders on 2nd in the Championship..
I just wish he was..well..a bit more manly about it.
His camera wave is pure girly, 1st time in years we've had anyone up the front and.....it's embarrassing. Sort it out please Bradley. :blush:

Bradley Smith is english is he!, never knew that, so what nationality are the others, the writer would have been best served if he explained where the englishman is actually from, as in which bleeding town. what nationality where all the others, so this Simon fellow, do we pronounce or say his name with an English accent, French, German or maybe a Spanish one.
Take hart though a BBC writer used the enlishman term six times to describe Button and Hamilton

I am having a go at the style of writing, you knew he was English, so do I, so do quite a lot who follow the sport, if your not gonna mention where other riders come from why mention the obvious.

Why don't the writers tell us something we don't know.

(Al) I am so pleased you think and he knows what his nationality is, but he won't get far though on his English Passport, his nationality is British and his country of birth is England

probably for the same reason that every time they mention Renualt they have to call them Regie and Button is always the Frome born Ace... it's just down to bad journalism....

and yes Decko, I know his European Union, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (or as we tend to call them, British) passport won't get him any favours, which rather begs the question, why is it that half the planet seems to want to have one ?

And just for the record, I'm also English and I make a point of putting just that on any form that asks.

Al, you will find that some folk might prefer the US one, you try flying from LA to San Diego with a UK passport, your made to feel very second class and thats after Tony declared that we were all allies, maybe, he was, I certainly didn't get that feeling. You can write on any form you wish your willingness to declare your English nationality after all it will be the judgement of the recipient that will decide if your right or wrong or if you get it or you don't get it.

Also I have followed Bradley all year, and was cheering him on in Assen
