I was wondering if Les would comment on the ‘Christian’ comment, above.
“Impassioned and crossed lines”? Here we go again with that old Spanish proverb ‘Zapatero a tus zapatos!’
Because if anything is likely to kill off this board, it’s posts merely dedicated to ‘judgments’ about others…. Gurn, Heathy, DM, BRI… you just forgot to give everyone the usual marks out of ten!
But since you’re so keen to hijack this thread, what do you make of those who use this board to spread lies, fake news and propaganda?
Or those who use it just to influence others for personal / political gain?
Or those who use several identities to appear numerous in the political and culture wars, in the full knowledge that if their cover is blown, they can reinvent themselves without any responsibility whatsoever? I think it must rather appeal, no? A bit like ghost writing, or assuming a nom-de-plume.
Or what has made you so convinced about Farage, Trump et al., that they’ve made you able to believe things which are demonstrably false?
Yet despite the litany of lies, hate and malfeasance, the racism, misogyny, even blasphemy… you claim on here you want ‘courtesy and respect’!
Strange, but if you like Farage and Trump and their brand of free speech, you’d be better off with Jim Davidson.
So, instead of preaching about others, you really should get on and engage with the topics, call out the lies and fake news, and show some Christian/moral leadership.
No wonder the country is in such a state, with such a catastrophic failure by those who should know better. Not unlike the club, as Ferrite wryly observes elsewhere.
