Politics/Brexit and Religious topics need banning, Too many on here have turned into ass hats because of it, Myself included, Certain people only use them to insult others and have done so since the first Brexit thread, I have asked 4 or 5 times for these posts to be locked in the past but got ignored, I apologise if I've offended anybody with my posts
In all honesty I believe that the Remainers are now beginning to smell the Coffee Meds. They now want to Save face before the inevitable occurs. Talk of Trolls makes me smile The biggest trolls are the ones calling for the Topic to be banned to save face it seems to me.
I came onto the forum primarily to defend a leaver who was being "verbally abused. I defended this chap and the abuser immediately turned his abuse on me.
I remember KittWazza complaining about political topics on what was essentially a Sports forum, to no avail he doesn't now contribute to the forum. As don't many others. The administration of the forum need to take a look at themselves for the divisiveness of this thread.
We are all of us to blame but most of it both on this forum and in parliament as SEFC stated in his post some days ago everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Opinions are not factual and should not be put forward as putative facts. To correct an opinion by facts is sound but to disparage some one 's opinion by an opposing opinion seems somewhat vulgar to me.
The decision is yours Mike. If it is allowed then policing the forum needs tightening 🐇🍷cheers
See, this is the problem. Point scoring is all we get even when we're trying to move the conversation on.

Again another example of throwing pointless point scoring into an unrelated thread.

This was not an advisarial thread. But now it is. Because of leavers inability to respond to anything in a balanced way. Thread locked.
