Care to answer, or you will you just scurry off again to GCC, tail between your legs?
I know that your modus operandi on here is to continually needle in the hope of provoking a reaction, but I should just correct the following inaccuracies:-

I don't believe I have ever claimed I would avoid this forum - and have consistently popped in to have a look and occasionally post. My view was simply that the segregation of political threads was a good idea (although perhaps regrettable), simply because the toxic approach of many of you was such that it was ruining the wider GCC. I understand that emotions are running high for some of you, and the toxicity can be cathartic, but it has simply stifled any reasonable discussion. To me, this experiment by the Mods is actually working very well.

You are vacillating a little on whether you want me to articulate the benefits of Brexit generally or a no deal Brexit. Just to clarify - I have never advocated a no deal Brexit, although I have said that there is not nearly as much to fear about it as Project Fear (actually now from both sides of the debate !) would have us believe.

As to the wider question of Brexit, I am simply unwilling (rather than unable, as you like to try and slur) to engage on here simply because it will simply provoke flaming from the usual dozen or so emotive posters (who IMHO are driven by an ideological emotion, rather than an pragmatic view of the limited downsides from the most likely scenarios) and I just don't have the time or, quite frankly, patience to engage with all of that.

If you want to believe I am "scurrying" and have my "tail between my legs" then please feel free to do so. That fact that you need to express yourself in such a way rather validates my point.

And, there you are, I've bitten - so more fool me ...

Oh does the word 'Pack' offend you? I do apologise.

How about the 'usual dozen or so emotive posters who are driven by an ideological emotion' as Richard put it. Is that better?

Just love the conceit that you 'represent the majority of the people in the country' on any subject at all.

No offence taken. Just concerned for you because your throw away lines do have a habit of coming back and biting you on the arse, don't they?

Lol - 'Biting you on the arse' - that sounds very familiar.

At least I can think up my own throwaway lines.

Thank you Wolf.

It does not surprise me that the Ragman cannot detect irony.

Why don't you take your 'irony' to Warsaw? Take the pack with you, I am sure they would love you out there.

Or perhaps best to keep it safely behind a keyboard 10,000 miles away.

That lunatic has been deliberately taking things out of context from people he doesn't agree with. However he has nothing to say about Skintofbrain's continual use of the word "ladies" as a putdown.

It just shows he's selective in his holier than thou supposed defence of hard pressed minorities.

Give it up, It's over. The rest of the pack have admitted defeat.

The fat lady has sung her song, so to speak.

What has distance got to do with anything? Is Les more ‘safe’ than NTE?

Isn’t it bizarre when self appointed intellectual giants mention people “safely behind a keyboard” on an internet discussion forum?

I’ll just chalk it up as another win for the winner.
