B-Lucky. Very well put across - imho. And I am one who joins in the political hoo-has. As ever a live issue on here.
Some inconsequential musings:
Why read/ join in? Well, there are a few (a very few) who make me stop and think because their insight is just much better than mine. Sure you can get that from a newspaper (some newspapers) but a forum thread is somehow rather interesting by being live and interactive. As for the rest, well there is some amusing argumentative devilment which is best suited to serious subjects. We would lose that, I think, if we were confined to tits and bums. Much is tongue in cheek and intended for mutual entertainment. In many cases its not just intellectual jerking off. Even the pomposity can be amusing. The Pythonesque 'this is an argument- no it isnt' posts are, however, just a pain.
Some, however, disprove Abe Lincoln's adage-
You can piss off some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time. There are some on here who can and indeed seem to relish pissing off all of the people all of the time. I contend that they would do so regardless of subject matter.
As per forum tradition, you will, of course, have been taken to task on your underwear choices. Happens, when no counter argument is available.
One really serious question arising ,as someone has stated above, is there a ganging up /bullying going on by some self selected, self-styled elite. Hope not.
Mr Dartney - no criticism this, but I don’t think you chose the right word in altruistic. I don’t claim to know your intent there but I suspect a flattering term like altruistic does not fit with it.
Anyone I have'nt slagged off? I do think I have included myself (at least by implication). I should certainly be doing something more purposeful than this.
