Subject: RE: BS: Uk Labour Party discussion II
Absolutely, Keith. Jim and I have had this conversation many a time and always remained on civil terms. I think he understands that when I disagree with him it is only from th epoint of view of my experience and I always accept that the experience of others may be different. I have said, twice now but as you seem to be ignoring it I will try a third time, that to those looking out for them, such as travelers, they will be more common than they should be. Unlike you who insist that they do not exist at all.

In one of the posts you have copied you have emboldened some passages. We all know by now that your understanding of what I intend is flawed at best so your emphasis is entirely driven by your agenda. Whatver that may be. Also, you have not highlighted the following

Yet I am still willing to accept the premise that they are more common than they should be and, were I a traveler, I would notice them more.

This is the reason that you rub people up the wrong way, Keith. You are so insistent that your view is the only one that is right. I have, as you have clearly demonstrated, been willing to listen to others and accept their point of view even when it is outside my experience. On rare occasions even you have some valid points and, when you do, I said so as you demonstrate.

As to anyone being racist, yes, anyone who tars an entire nationality with a particular trait is being racist and I have said the same to Jim many a time. Yet we have remained friendly and civil about it. You may want to ask yourself why. If you like you can ask Jim as well and he will tell you the same.

But I doubt you will.

So much for your 'little gang' theory as well eh?
