That is even sillier than †your last post. †You know damn well I have never accused Campbell of phone hacking but asked you three times to justify your assertion that he has never been associated with it.
Since you will not, or cannot do that, I can only assume that you have some reason why you will not give a straight answer to a straight question.
Your tactics in argument or discussion are always to change things around to attempt to make it seem that your antagonist is in the wrong. †This is the clearest example you have ever given.
It is a classic Communist ploy to besmirch the opposition by any and all means possible. †You claim not to be a Communist but you certainly sing from their hymn sheet.
In addition you are once again bringing in someone to whom I have not referred in this discussion and who has no bearing on the argument.
Give it up Scouse. †You are well beaten and you know it. †What is more every one else who reads these posts knows it as well.
This is the last time I will discuss this matter with you so any future reply will go unanswered - not because you have won but because of the sheer futility of getting a sensible answer or any answer from you.

I fully agree with your comments Terry.
Well, Iíve thought long and hard about whether I really need to be here at all, given the puerile arguments advanced by some people, and †the level of ignorance displayed by others who should really get into the habit of reading all thatís happened in a thread before effectively taking sides.
What you get here in place of rational discussion †is †misrepresentation of an opposing viewpoint,achieved by twisting his/her words or by means of [false] assumptions. All quite deliberate.
The opposing view is replaced with superficial hyperbole †without ever having actually refuted the original position or †by presenting an over-simplified version of the opponentís original statement. Again, quite deliberate.
Then you get the "joyriders" who take no part in a discussion but inject criticism at a personal level when they clearly havenít read all of the posts, or didnít understand them. I have been personally abused , and when that didnít work, comments, albeit utterly ignorant and ill-informed were directed at the country I live in, yet when I made an in-context response, one of the side-line commenterís decided I was delivering a "low blow". Another, who clearly hadnít read anything, suggested we leave poor Scouse alone!
As I said at the beginning, I have thought long and hard as to whether I need to be here! Iíve got Scouse on ignore, so I canít read his nonsensical socialistic claptrap and yes, I appreciate thatís an opinion but it is mine, and I donít really care if anyone disagrees because thatís my mindset at present.
Iím going to give myself the weekend to consider whether I breally need all the bolleaux that goes on here from time to time.
