I am, however, somewhat concerned that 2 members felt so threatened by a discussion of a kitchen tool that they felt the need to complain to the mods about it. I doubt either of them are willing to come forward, but I'd be interested in hearing what caused them such concern.
Me too. So, come on you 2, let us know as I'm baffled by it all

yes an admission of over reacting but its this same old nonsense (and by no means am I referring to all of the team!) that has made me pretty much give up with this place I used to enjoy so much. There are so many of the oldies that are rarely around now. There must be a reason eh! Bloomin shame really :(
Cheers now

While not wishing to poke a bear with a stick.....it can be argued that Brexit is not a political issue but rather one of sovereignty and therefore governance.

Governance, has been defined by Unesco as refering to structures and processes that are designed to ensure accountability, transparency, responsiveness, rule of law, stability, equity and inclusiveness, empowerment, and broad-based participation.

Political colour is arbitrary, as illustrated by the complete lack of unity over the Brexit question within the two primary political parties holding the vast majority of seats in Parliament.

Brexit should therefore be a permissible subject as long as it is only the consequential impact on governance that is discussed.
