    Crossman makes a valid point that some pieces written by Holland should be tagged as opinion pieces.

    Exactly. That's why I thought it strange you had a very specific answer as to who decides what is reasonable. Its not coherent.

    Bill Clinton didn't assault children. I'm not excusing Clinton's nasty behaviour either.

    Mitsui as ever spot on. That was it exactly.

    But what was really nice, and Merc missed this bit of it, the ordinary people, they knew, without saying, and they were just lovely.
    And I was serious, it was like being on p.ie, only with sound . Rory O'Neill is just marvellous.
