No we don't Silas: we are aware of past history as you and Jim. We just recognise that, although lessons where appropriate must be learnt from it, it is not invariably relevant to the immediate case. The important thing is to be able to make distinctions in this particular. We can. You and Jim are so hidebound in your thinking that you can't; you can only bluster.

This applies both to the history of the world and of our nations; and to the 'history' of what posters on this thread might have said on previous occasions. The fact that Keith and I once made certain points on a different thread on a different topic may be relevant to this thread; but it is not NECESSARILY so, as Ira Gershwin observed.
