Based on past experiences aboard this fair ship, it's undoubtedly a wise move.

However, isn't it somewhat sad that there are those of adult age not able to lock horns intellectually without taking offence and/or interpreting honest and genuine difference of opinion as a personal affront? A sad reflection on how our education system fails to prepare some of our population for the big bad world.

It's a good point Bozza. In my experience people will gladly post to a forum words that could never say to someone face to face. Also, when reading a post, it's difficult sometimes to divine what someone is truly trying to say, as we only have their words to go on. No wonder arguments break out. The psychology of forums!

Three cheers for Stu and three cheers for the debate forum.

But you can have a frank and open exchange of views in the debate forum. I choose not to join as I know I might easily lose the plot in such a forum. I think that the nature of forums is so different to a face to face interaction. Here we can misinterpret posts and use the anonymity of the boards to say what we might not normally say face to face. I do not think that it is anything to do with the failure of the education system to prepare some people. I might well be one of those people who would get embroiled in an argument if I hadnt the option to opt out. Quite honestly I am glad to have that option, otherwise I might be banned due to lack of self control.

I don't think I could get heated about any of the current political parties - I don't have strong views about any of them TBH.

Nothing political but I don't like the way GB sticks his lower jaw out when he takes a breath!

I love politics and I'm certainly going to have an exciting few weeks - but I appreciate politics can be heated enough, without trying to interpret emoticons!

Thanks mossyflossy. Do you want to carry the briefcase for my first budget? It will include the abolition of Air Passeneger Duty and will increase the duty free allowance for countries outside the EU to 1000 per person.
