    "Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones"
    Because I believe the gay cake case was a reflection of a lot that is wrong with this country and the thinking that drives cases like it. Your conclusions were wrong about that and I'm glad the supreme court saw sense even though for all the wrong reasons. Is there a connection between the kind of thinking on these issues and the thinking on Brexit? Absolutely!


    Oh and another thing: you act in all self righteousness accusing me of nastiness towards Graham when I was just telling the truth and you're there openly cursing. As you say those in glass......

    On the one hand we have John Boulton this week declaring openly and happily how the US and UK can make it happen. A let's get it done attitude, positive and uplifting. On the other hand we have the EU and its rot in hell mantra. The same can be said of Brexit adversaries. Nigel Farage's attitude that we can be an independent self governing nation that can make things better for it's people. And James O'Brian's attitude that we should stay in the EU because otherwise you'll get chlorinated chicken from America.


    And he hasn't got the sense to realise the water supply here is full of the stuff.

    So given we were long-standing members then remaining was the only intelligent position to hold because whilst no-one could accurately forecast how calamitous the outcome of the negotiation to leave would be, a child of 5 with an IQ above 50 and a few months of playground experience would have already had enough life-experience to know that leaving would be a disaster because of spite and revenge prompted by rejection etc.

    And so it has come to pass.

    But hey! I have just been out for a ride in the sun on my new Italian Bianchi/Campagnolo 22 speed, after going shopping in my German car and I am now sipping a lovely French White Burgundy and planning my next holiday in Finland (EU Member since 1995)...and life will go on.
    Graham are you telling us you didn't discipline your children when they were younger because you were afraid of them holding it against you?

    And is the main reason for being a remainer the ease to which you can enjoy holidays abroad?

    No.

    No. (And anyway neither Thailand, the good ol' USA nor Kazakhstan are in the EU).

    And, for the absence of doubt, I actually like you and welcome your Forum contributions (...pause...) and, like knowing where I was when John Kennedy was shot, I remember exactly when and where I met you (to put you right about Pantani).
