        No, I don't think so. My response was instinctive and sincere. I think it was a crap joke that to me seemed tasteless at a time when violence has often been threatened, and sometimes enacted, against MP's. It just isn't the sort of thing I think is helpful in the current climate. But if everyone else disagrees and thought the joke was great, guess what - its a free country (yes, whatever you think of "lockdown"!) so they are welcome to it. I couldn't care less about the responses I received - as I say, I am for free speech.

          [QUOTE Indeed, I am waiting to hear from the police myself to follow up on a report I had to make earlier this week after receiving abusive email at work.[/QUOTE]

          That's not good. Sorry to hear this. I was abused a few times at work this week, for trying to take details for track and trace. A few customers didn't like it and became aggressive. You try to explain it is for their benefit but it cuts no ice.

            To be fair, it is water of a ducks back to me (I was a bus driver for years and did late turns, so have seen, heard and been called most of it), however one of my staff was also abused in the same email - - I simply do not tolerate my staff being abused, end of story. My team work hard for me and will pull out the stops when needed, so the least I can do is stand up for them and protect them whilst they are at work.

                Clearly not the vaccine that killed them for sure. Possibility that there was something (allergen maybe?) in the placebo?

                I clicked "Agree" to Simon's post so should I go and sit in the naughty corner too ?

                      I didn't agree with Simon's post, and I did reply in hopefully a non inflammatory way.
                      Personally I was surprised in the rebuke he got, as one word answers are allowed as far as I know.

                        I was also surprised at Simons response to a pretty run of the mill WhatsApp meme or joke ( not sure of the difference). I immediately deleted all my WhatsApp content as most are pretty high on the vile scale :)

                          Probably because it was raining or sommat..:rolleyespink:

                          To think no march past the Cenotaph for our fallen which I might add is the right thing under the circumstances but for this 'protesting' codswallop to be allowed infuriates me:gaah:
