Alright Alan, I can sympathise & to a degree agree with some of both Terry & Mauricesí oppinons & can understand why they should see it that way. The only fly in the ointment is when you see shadows of Mccarthyism rearing itís ugly head as shown by Michael. To the Mccarthy ultra right everything that happens or anyone who voices a different view is either Left Wing & part of the Liberal Elite or has been brainwashed by them. Michael has even, on other posts accused the current & most probably the most right wing Tory Party to gainpower as being Left Wing Liberal elite. When views like his are aired it automatically turns every thinking man against a view, that in reality, has merrits.
† Sorry Michael this is not America in the late 40ís early 50ís, this is the UK in the 22nd century there will never be a House Committee on UnBritish Activities.

Given Scouse, that you consider yourself a to be a Thinking Man, I am surprised that you are not aware of how the political system works in this country, and, how the media is manipulated to do their bidding, in order to push through their agenda.
In relation to the right wing tories, I can only count about 80 to 100 MP,s who could be consisdered to be of that persuasion, Boy Dave and many of the others are only to happy to be in government with the Liberals, it means they do not have to take any radical decisions, eg Europe, which of course lets them of the hook, and ensures the blame will fall on the Liberals.
I was sorry to note that you are beginning to show the usual trait of the left, for when challenged, which they hate, they resort to insults.
It was great listening to the BBC this morning, subject, Terry. How a minor incident like this can warrant all this hype, is beyond my comprehension, could it be that it is the interests of certain elements within our society to keep it on the boil!!
