Marco

Delighted to hear you're on the mend. Fillet steak w/ asparagus in hospital? 5-star facilities!

See you in a short while

Cheers, Paul :-)

There was a young fellow from Rostov... er, best left there.

Hope you're feeling well and that you're recuperating nicely. Hospitals are seldom fun and it's always good to be home.

For myself, I've been feeling a bit jaded recently and I attribute this to overexposure to politics, Twitter, news sites and the like. So - rather like having a dry January off the booze I'm going to have a dry Feb/March off the web - or at least, those areas which elevate the blood pressure.

I'll see you back here in a month or so. Have a good one!

I think you're entirely correct that changing peoples' minds on web forums is a hopeless task, though there have been a couple of times when I've thought 'Oh. Perhaps I should reassess my position'.

In most cases, though, posts on political web sites are a continuation of war by other means. Sometimes (on forums other than ConHome) I go off-piste as a deliberate attempt to de-rail conflict between others. It doesn't work so well on ConHome because of the way that posts are nested (ugly).

In any event, I've been feeling a bit jaded recently and I attribute this to overexposure to politics, Twitter, news sites and the like. So - rather like having a dry January off the booze I'm going to have a dry Feb/March off the web - or at least, those areas which elevate the blood pressure.

Some suggest that the close result of the Referendum and the opaque nature of the question requires that a compromise be struck. The UK can be 'out' of the EU, sure, but must retain formal links via other institutions such as EFTA or the Customs Union.

Fair enough. But one wonders if they would they be so ready to propose this kind of 'compromise' had the result been 52:48 in favour of remaining.

I do not know but I think we should be told.

Moreover that the previous Taoiseach launched a technological working group to investigate a frictionless border solution. His successor Mr Varadkar soon put a stop to this.

I wonder why.

The new Ireland / Spain ferry is much to be welcomed, though it offers only two sailings a week compared to the ten a day between Dublin and Holyhead. Doubtless it will be of use for time-insensitive hauliers destined for Spain, Portugal and Southern France, though not so much for businesses trading with Northern Europe.

Anyway, good for Brittany ferries! The more choice the better.

No one here can stop you espousing self-defeating bigotry. I wouldn't even want to try.

Indeed. Having both worked in radio for years and listened to the Moggster's last show I can confirm without bias that he's a natural broadcaster.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm looking forward to the day when 17.5 million elderly bigots are hurled into the fiery pit, there to suffer the torments of the damned.

It won't affect me, though. I am a terrifically important senior manager with limitless worldwide contacts and many, many senior and important friends. I shall shake the dust of this broken, bigoted land from my feet and embark upon a global odyssey, alighting from time to time in foreign parts where important, senior people shall gather at my feet to imbibe my wisdom.

You'll all be sorry when I'm gone.

I'm utterly convinced that Mr Shepherd Bushiri can walk on air. Rush me the Prophet's book 'How to do Totally Amazing Stuff Without Any Visible Assistance'. I enclose $32.99 and full details of my bank account including passwords.
