Re: Boris Johnson on the Burka

Whatever his reasons for saying what he did, the words are true! - the Batman face coverages DO look like letterboxes, as many would agree (including some of the wearers themselves) - and as far as an apology is concerned, good for him for refusing; it really is not warranted. The whole thing is so ...

Re: Police Protection

Well, providing 24-hour protection in one place requires four people, working shifts (might get away with three for a short period). And there were - how many - about six boys? Thorough protection gets very expensive very quickly, especially with overtime / unsocial hours bonuses.... Speaking of .....

Re: " Gary Mannion discovers the world "

Ketchup - as far as I can see your link is to a forum thread on wikipedia rather than rationalwiki - I might have missed something though. You might have missed the fact that the link relates to the Editing Pages section of Wikipedia and some of its resident Editors , and the origin and raison d'êt...

Huge : thdown for the so-called "rationalwiki" site. :evil: T...

Can't find my favourite smiley for this subject ... (beating that poor horse with a stick) . Where did it go? None of the others express the appropriate sentiment.
