I m not going to fall into the trap of arguing with you in your present mood. I am by the way a Right of Centre local politician standing for the United Kingdom Independence Party. I am also an historian and Archaeologist with awards and Fellowships to my credit and 40 years service to Classics including a Fellowship. No I'm not going to call you racist or any other term beloved of the Left! Nor will I stoop to insult! You started this. Like I said, I do not know you, nor wish to in your present mood since nothing I say would make the slightest difference anyway.

You may indeeed regard me as an old fool but as Cicero stated: 'We have achieved much by reaching old age! '

So there we have it. If you want to debate in a civil manner then I will as well. Otherwise please desist. The option is yours. Option by the way comes from 'Optio ad spem' the rank of understudy to a Centurion.

Why do you condemn those you disagree with so vehemenently? Why is everybody that disagrees with you' ignorant and should attend primary school'. If as you say you are well known and recognised as 'knowlegeable and respected' by Ianus for example, who by the way informed me you were not too happy at present, then why do you not allw others their views? That is why I stated you are hiding something or not confident of your views.

When people rant and shout nobody hears! When you speak quitely you speak with authority and people hear you! I know many on the Left that rant and shout like you! Are you perhaps on the wrong side? It is only a question after all!

I do not know you, hate you nor want to OK!?

Civilised disourse yes. But if not, then desist please!
