    Now any chance you can stay on topic instead of using the old tactic of derailing threads that dont fit your agenda.
    You missed an apostrophe in "don't", Tom. And forgot the question mark at the end of the same sentence.

    Their goal is to pit ordinary folks against each other to keep the spot light off them, dont vent your anger at the Polski or Indian working in Ireland, it's not their fault. If you are angry or frustrated vent at the politicians who allow exploitation of ordinary workers, vent at the big business elites who's goal it is to drive down wages and working conditions.
    If you are intelligent enough to see this then I don't understand how you cannot see that this is exactly what those with a racist agenda are doing.

    What issue, what facts?

    Why do you keep conflating the argument for controlled immigration with the argument against multi-culturalism? Why do you ignore anyone who says that they are in favour of controlled immigration for economic reasons but not of racism?

    Post some facts there Tom, dazzle us with facts.

    They have been conspicious by their abscense from your posts up to now, so you will forgive me if I don't hold my breath, okay?

    How much do you get paid? Are the conditions in the propaganda department good?
    What type of psychoanalysis do they teach you or have you not reached that level yet, hmm?

    I already answered that, Tom. About 1,000 posts ago.

    Do try to keep up, there's a good chap.

    As ever, the real Tom emerges.

    That story really riled you, didn't it?

    Felt a bit too real, I bet?

    Historically I've no doubt that at one stage "countermeasures" was written as two words (and almost certainly, at some intermediate stage, as a single, hyphenated one). But while one does still occasionally see the hyphenated form, the single-word usage is nowadays (as best I'm aware) the normal one, and I've rarely if ever seen the word written "counter measures" - which could, after all, legitimately be read as a reference to measures involving, say, shop counters, and would therefore actually be unclear.
    The need for clarity in a contemporary context has a great deal to do with the way words, languages - and indeed populations - change over time.

    With the many millions of English-speakers in the world, the language is constantly changing, and the truth is that what you might personally feel about particular linguistic uasges is pretty irrelevant in the end. The world marches on regardless - as I've no doubt at all you've found in other areas as well.

    But somehow I suspect this is all a new field for you - I don;t get the impression you've spent much time thinking about the development of labguages. Or indeed languages. Or indeed development. Or even, indeed, thinking.
    Have you ever tried Flotation Tank Therapy? Its fantastic, one of the best things iv ever done. It teaches you how to see the universe as it is; constantly changing. You should try it some time. It might help with what must be a a very unhealthy disposition to constantly tell people off for not spelling things properly and it might help to cure you of the need to be witty (and most prob laugh at you own jokes) all the time.
