Then what did you mean by "you, of all people,

I do believe I already answered that, Michael, by saying "I meant that you are, or were I understand, an intelligent person with influence in the media."

Maybe it was a peculiarly unfortunate choice of phrase. but that only goes to prove my point. There are very few people, including yourself, who have the literary skills and potential platform to swing the majority for or against a section of the population. If you had known that in a number of threads I have lambasted the press for their part in stirring up hatred you would have probably gleaned that meaning. There is no reason why you would know my views as I accept that my poor scribblings are not universally know so I apologise for that 'poor choice'. Equally I have not read everything that you have posted so I do hope you will excuse me for not knowing that you would jump to a different conclusion.

Ake - is that is will soon become socially unacceptable to refuse testing. So are you now saying that you do NOT approve of compulsory testing?

Kendall - You know I respect you and your posts. Why the 'last few' posts in particular? I have just re-read through the last half dozen and compared to earlier ones they seem to be a perfectly civilised exchange of views with no abuse therein. Am I missing something?
