Re: EU tariffs on US goods

Yeah? But that was a reported quote allegedly direct from our Home Secretary, Boris Johnson. Maybe you should complain to him? Maybe I've misunderstood? Did Boris Johnson say "business can f**k off"? If you can provide a published quote I will happily moderate my moderation (or ask a coll...

Re: EU tariffs on US goods

In the meantime, notwithstanding the current moderation issue... It is a negotiation. Of course no-one knows what the outcome will be until the final moments. For heaven's sake! Business will inevitably suffer during this uncertainty. Anything imaginable could happen to our economy during these time...

Personally I don't mind reading through long posts if they have been reported. It doesn't happen all that often. If I'm in a hurry and cant invest the time I just leave the report open for one of my colleagues.

Re: Removing nails applied with a nail gun

Does anyone know of a good way to remove nails which have been applied with a nail gun. I offer up this suggestion more as food for thought rather than a definite suggestion. Sometimes I have to remove sheets of board nailed down at about 1 foot centres over joists or floorboards. I use one of thes...

Re: Too many of the “wrong kind ...”

Democracy as we know it barely exists anywhere in the middle east. so it is entirely possible for Israel to both be the most democratic nation in the middle east AND not have democracy in the sense that we do. Then again during WW2 the UK really didn't have democracy and Israel is in a permanent st...

Re: Moderation again

Ordinarily I just get an alert, look at the post, deal with it, put a mod box on it if appropriate, maybe PM if time allows, close out the report, keep on trucking. It would be slightly better to close out the report just before dealing with it so that other moderators don't start working on the sa...

Re: Too many of the “wrong kind ...”

And it was quite obvious at the time of the UN landslide vote to create Israel that there would have to be some displacement. I'm no expert. My feeling is that the Israeli government no longer give a fig about the UN or its resolutions. I say this because I believe that various UN resolutions have ...

Re: Moderation again

One thing I will suggest as a thing to watch out for is the "play the ball, not the man" principle: exactly the same word (e.g. "ridiculous" or "nonsense") might well be a lot less acceptable if aimed at the poster (e.g. "That's typical of your nonsense.") th...

Re: Moderation again

So basically, while I agree it's a problem, I'm afraid I don't see any prospect of it being solved. Yes. My take on it is that if it is in my opinion a relatively minor transgression then I add a mod comment and leave it at that not caring too much if the (IMO) transgressor sees it or not. If I rea...

Re: Lords amendments

The will of the British people isn't a judgement call but a simple fact of how the majority voted I sort of agree. I think is was a judgement call based upon the collective voter experience at the moment of the referendum. The majority felt leaving the EU was the way to go. So, frankly, that's what...

Roll forward to today: we still haven't left, but some campaigners are shouting "see - I told you so" or "Ha! never happened", as if the predictions of the impact of Brexit could be judged now, before we've actually left. I believe those campaigners are shouting about those part...

Re: Tory MP blocks bid to make upskirting a criminal offence

Trusting your child's judgement does not equate in my world to resigning one's role as a responsible parent. I agree. All children are different, for example my eldest desperately wanted to be grown up and could be trusted with many situations whereas my next, at the same age, IMO could not. It was...
