I’ll leave it to you to figure out whether that’s an appropriate display of patriotism.

  1. however that it is near impossible to put a ctieratge paper between them speaking literally and that regardless of how really awful they are by default (as if according to a pact) to others standing at the door looking in who are excluded.

I always begin to read every article and every comment considering each thoughtfully to the best of my ability and sure enough sooner every time, I feel alienated. I understand that the dominant voice is purported to be the left wing inasmuch as it supports the voters of the Labor Party and the Greens, so help us all if this is going to swing support to a left wing vote or for that matter an intention to pursue engagement in the political arena or needs of people of diverse electorates, needs that are rarely referenced. Savage earth. No, I am not writing on behalf of Carisbrooke who is so persistently provocative I noticed after a while he is all over the place to the point I wondered if he was a stoolie trying to bring the pub unhinged. I think that wouldn’t be hard if all we have left participating actively is us. A number of people will not throw their hat in this ring or participate by sending in contributions. Hell, I’ve tried.
