I hardly ever come on this board now and this thread reveals why. Whatever people’s views might be they deserve to be heard and respected, but that rarely happens on here.
The main problem I have with ‘the knee’ is, first, that BLM is a political organisation and whether you agree with BLM’s views or not the football authorities should never have associated the game with ‘Black Lives Matter’. They’ve now put this right but it should never have happened in the first place. The second reason is that after a while all these gestures become routine and instead of reinforcing a message actually begin to diminish it.
As for the EU, Gurnelista’s comment is a classic example of pure dogma. What people such as Gurnelista refuse to accept is that the remain camp used tactics every bit as bad as the leave campaign and couldn’t win the argument even with the entire Government propaganda machine behind it. The vast majority of remainers accepted their argument was well and truly lost with the result of the last election, yet ideologs such as Gurnelista still maintain everything is down to the media and some mystical power.
Of course there are problems associated with leaving the EU but, again, people such as Gurnelista refuse to accept there will also be a lot of benefits. Failure to accept this reveals, at best, complete ignorance or, at worst, a complete lack of respect for anyone else’s views and opinions. The only person Gurnelista believes to be right is himself.
