Thanks for your contribution to the debate. I didn't realise you were a closet BNP supporter, Dullish Roy. I always had you down as a UKIP supporter (not much difference though, I guess). You have the right to be a supporter of them of course, because we are fortunate enough to live in a democracy. Just like I have the right to deplore their overtly racist and bigoted policies and tactics. They ...

Bank Holiday
26 Aug 2008

I hope that everyone enjoyed the Bank Holiday as much as I did. A fabulous but hectic afternoon and evening on Saturday was followed by a more relaxing Sunday. We were unable to have a picnic, so we opted for a lovely lunch at a riverside country inn followed by a brisk walk along the river bank. Monday itself was a very long day - exhausting but very worthwhile. If you've never been to Lincoln, ...

Thank you for a thoughtful, intelligent and insightful posting Don. The sentiments that you express within it will certainly be taken on board by myself.
