""Do you REALLY think that you should GET respect that YOU deny to those you disagree with???""

My political comment is, for the most part, aimed at the ineptitudes and stupidities of politicians.

While I often attack political opinions which I consider naive or dishonest, I do not make personal attacks upon others here who disagree with my stance, unless I suffer personal attacks from them.

Having identified myself as a British Tory voter, such attacks are now a daily occurrence from a small group of people who lack the good manners to allow others the freedom to speak without being slandered or ridiculed.

Thus far, I am managing not to respond in kind, having been brought up and educated (at Grammar school) to behave in a gentlemanly fashion. Would that some of our University and Law school graduates had the same upbringing.
