Excellent response Frank. Couldn’t agree with you more.
This always has been and remains a forum of the highest quality. Input is usually stimulating, intelligent and comments of all ‘colours and persuasions’ are tolerated. Why shouldn’t individuals feel able to post their opinions without the straight-jacket of political correctness? If a member expresses the opinion that immigrants to the UK are given ‘fast track’ privileges to available support, then they should be able to state that. It may or may not be true, but what is important is freedom of speech and an openess to debate rather than some narrow-minded individual attempting to admonish perceived racism! And then to state that they have been observing the forum for some time; well that just smacks of Big Brother tactics, lurking in the background watching.
