Well, given the standard of English comprehension around here, who could blame me for reserving room for reasonable doubt? ;)



Then my work here is done.

That's pretty much it; Greece's Government has a mandate to oppose the austerity measures, but to maintain Greece's membership of the eurozone. Since it now looks as if it cannot reasonably do both,...

That's good to know.



I remarked that the term "real change" was subjective. You and angarrack between you chose to make a bloody great mountain out of that molehill. I make no apology for sticking...

I'll just have to take your word for that, I suppose.



Well, if you think it's subjective, it would be useful to explain why. At least I offered an explanation - or at least a starting-point of...

I haven't said that either. I stand by the claim that "the middle ground" is less subjective, on the grounds that - as I said earlier - you can measure it statistically. That is definitely not the...

False. If you're having trouble understanding what I am saying, ask; do not assume, don't leap to conclusions and don't falsely represent what I am saying. That way leads nowhere useful.

The "finer detail" in this case being an optical illusion... perhaps not the wisest analogy to pursue, and I am not sure that that kind of remark is particularly helpful anyway.

Missing words round...!

Should read: "I do not think the notion that these decisions are made in a political vacuum really flies."

"Real change" is another of those subjective terms. It means different things to different people; it makes for a good political soundbite, but it lacks any substance in and of itself.

"Doesn't include" is perhaps a poor choice of words, and I shouldn't have allowed you to feed it to me. "Is not represented by" would be better.



Nowhere do I say that.

Be honest. You're not going to make up your mind based on anything Cameron comes back with. Nor will clinch. You've made up your minds already.

So to answer your question, the 'general public' - and...

The poll didn't ask about Muslims. Many Muslims are as ignorant of their own religion as any non-Muslim - and we can probably be profoundly thankful for that. And many Muslims are normal, decent...
