MGM·Lion BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit (1036* d) RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit 19 Jun 16

Your opinion as to my 'tone' is of little interest to me, peregrina.

I note your wish virtually to disenfranchise me on account of my being old enough to have lived long enough to survive the Blitz on London, although my N London school near my then home was destroyed in an air raid in 1940, and a landmine fell less than ¼-mile from our house in 1944 and blew out several windows; serve my country in its armed services; work long enough to qualify as an old age pensioner — your thanks for all of which would appear to be to endeavour to prevent my having any say in how succeeding generations of the nation I have served should be governed.

Comment, in any 'tone' in which I might have chosen to deliver it, would be superfluous. I can't imagine such proposals would be very widely supported by many of your fellow citizens, most of whom [to avoid the sort of mildly pejorative locution to which you appear to take such peculiarly fastidious exception] I would take to be rather more sensible, rational and intelligent than are you.
