It's really time to allow cameras into every court in the country.

Christmas time should remain known as Christmas time not Winter Festival.

Is that an unpopular idea?

Northern Ireland is more undemocratic now than it ever was under Unionist majority rule.

Some people who use political correctness (or pc, pc brigade, or whatever way you prefer to say it) as a way to defend or reason for just being obnoxious and deliberately offensive. E.g. I can't say this because of political correctness

Certain obsessive threads in the TV section really annoy me. I'm not talking about the Cult section (which I never visit) but posts in the TV programmes forum.

There are certain threads about TV programmes which are heavy with fan fiction/ obsessive detail/ hero worship/psychology of characters posts. So much so that people who want to make a general comment or that they didn't like certain aspects of the show/continuity/ acting etc are put off posting.

I'm just not an obsessive person over TV programmes and so like to comment on what I see, not read through fans' imaginary scripts of what should happen, in-depth analysis of fictional characters' motives etc. That's what (I imagine) goes on in Cult which is why I don't visit it.
I know that this thread isn't meant to encourage 'I agree' posts, but I couldn't help it..I agree.

Actually I think that on DS and forums in general some people have become a bit over sensitive and could benefit from toughening up a bit.

There are a fair few posters who see the thread about their favourite shows as an appreciation thread and dislike it if it or any aspect of it is criticised, even mildly.

So what if I don't like a television character that you do? Why do some get so upset over it and take it to heart?

And, I hate to say it, but the worst culprits for this appear to be female .

Apparently asking people to vote for you in a competition is a crime

I find myself backing the protesters over the alleged health and safety reasons for keeping St Paul's Cathedral closed.

People who have to tell you they aren't racist or sexist.....usually are.

The way in which ratings are gathered- some people fill in diaries then it's multiplied- is so spurious that believing the data is ridiculous.

Threads such as "best boobs on tv" are cringeworthy and prove how everything is sexualised now.

People should have to take a critical thinking course before being allowed to buy tabloid newspapers.

I'm only half joking.

I think David Beckham is a lot more intelligent and articulate than he is generally given credit for.

I agree with this, Victoria too.

People who go on Facebook or forums just to post about how drunk they are need to get a life. You're night couldn't have been that good if you need to go on a forum and tell everyone about how 'drunk' you are.

The general British public are too stupid and ill-informed to give a reasoned response to a referendum on whether or not to remain in the EU.
Possibly controversial, but I'd agree with this.

People shouldn't be forced to wear poppies.
(This is in response to a Daily Express article which argued that wearing poppies should be compulsory!)

Poppies should be a voluntary way to remember the war dead.
If you insist on everyone wearing them, whether they want to or not, they lose all their meaning.

Doctors receptionists do not deserve a fraction of the vitriol that is aimed at them. They are simply doing the job in the way that they have been asked to do by the senior doctor and/or manager at the practice they work at.

If they did not make some attempt to find out how urgent your request to see a doctor was and just booked everyone in straight away, waiting rooms would be even more chaotic and waiting times would be even longer than they already are.

If you have a problem with the way your surgery is run, you should take it up with the practice manager, who I daresay has more experience of the best way of running a doctors surgery than you do.

Yes, I agree. It's starting for me to have (for me) nationalistic undertones, too. I'm all for the charity.

My brain now sinks when I see yet another DS thread has been started about paedophilia , arse habits or religion.

People who patronise others by trying to tell them "You don't really think that" or "You don't actually really mean what you say" or "No, you wouldn't really do that in the circumstances" are contemptible ****wits who should be pointed at, laughed at, scorned, reviled and generally mercilessly abused.
