Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
re: this term 'leftard' now, i know i have mentioned this before and got nowhere - but it is really offensive. i work with disabled people who, over the years, have suffered many insults and derogatory and dismissive names. one of the worst is 'retard' Thankfully, it is a horrible term that we never hear in decent conversation anymore. clearly the term as used here is a mix of lefty and retard. i have asked before about people (well, iain) using the term but the mods seem quite happy with it.

please, could any mod come on here and justify tolerating such hateful language from a contributor with absolutely nothing positive to contribute.
