Colin, perhaps you have, in the past, overlooked your UK based, true blue colleagues’ reactions to any condemnation of their party’s actions; by Scouse or anyone else for that matter!
The reason as to why we were ’forbidden’ from arguing about politics and religion during our service time was a more than simple one............the two subjects cause entrenchment in one’s mind from a very early age; as does cissy ball.
True argument can only proceed when both sides or parties are capable of deference during the process and decline to sit in intransigence.
This is the very core of the failure of political argument on FR. There are few Labour supporters and a host of Tory ones. Few of them are capable of reasoned debate on the subject. Simply gainsaying and mudslinging proves nothing. BOTH the Reds and the Blues have been shafting this country for at least 50 years, either by incompetence or design.
I will say one thing in Scouse’s defence this time, however. It is that I agree with his question as to why you choose to ’rubbish’ the thread. Had this been misplaced on General (not unlike many crossovers here!) I could understand it but it is correctly lodged and should be discussed as such.
Maurice, bad news my friend. Poverty exists throughout time and as Jock has pointed out, there are other examples of this unpleasant and often unnecessary situation. It is (in this country)generally caused by poor administration. Administration of the type that we have suffered for many years. The party in power is irrelevant. What is relevant is the obvious lack of skills held by these tree swingers and troglodytes when it comes to the running of the country.
I for one do not need billions to be spent supporting other supposedly civilised countries nor frightening sums thrown to the winds in the name of overseas aid. Not when it is money that I and other hard working, genuine inhabitants of this land have had removed in order to ’progress’ our own country’s affairs. All this simply, to look benevolent in the eyes of a world which, in truth, sees us as the boil on the backside of the world.
We are impressing no one.
