    How "The Chap" Saved Savile Row.

    Even if what you are writing here were true, how does this evidence that I am pushing for England, or even the UK, to be a third world country?

    Spotting fake Burberry.

    Why would a fake advertise the fact? why make a coat that looks like a Burberry and then add a label that would make it a fake, if Burberrys weren't made in Poland.

    How "The Chap" Saved Savile Row.

    Indeed. So let it stand or fall by it's own efforts. A free market either exists, or it doesn't. If protection of any kind is supported, it should be supported across the board, not just to help the wealthy maintain their particular interests.

    How "The Chap" Saved Savile Row.

    What makes Savile Row a special case, or Harley Street? When the traditions of the Wear, the Tyne and the Tees can be discarded without a second thought? Why is protectionism in the case of Savile Row a laudable enterprise, when protectionism in Redcar isn't possible? Is it anything more than a...

    How "The Chap" Saved Savile Row.

    Sorry, I wasn't offering a criticism of you, or demanding an answer from you, it was more in the nature of a rhetorical question aimed at the world in general.

    How "The Chap" Saved Savile Row.

    I'm very pleased to read something posted by you that I very much agree with. Why is saving an elitist trade that most people can't afford (and never have been able to afford) and which employs a couple of hundred people at most a "good thing", when saving industries that employed hundreds of...

    How "The Chap" Saved Savile Row.

    Wealthy elitists have saved an elitist institution in an elitist area that has an elitist local authority. Other breaking news: Protection of areas of natural beauty irrelevant, as long as they are somewhere in "The North" and money can be made from development......

    Sore Losers

    If a person uses racist language to describe people of a different race, then I'm inclined to think that person is racist, even if they deny it subsequently. The conclusion has thus already been reached, with justification. Do you consider that derogatory language (n-----) being used towards a...

    Sore Losers

    If you read again, "If one expresses support for Farage and his views" in the context of his know racism, the meaning should be clear.

    Sore Losers

    Quite. Expressing, or espousing racist or fascistic views, or expressing support for the views of somebody who has expressed racist or misogynistic views, for example, could well result in one correctly being described as such. As an example, Farage has expressed racist and xenophobic views, so...

    Leonard Cohen, may his memory be a blessing

    Indeed. Curiously, Halleluia by the man himself came up on shuffle on my iPod during my drive to work this morning.

    Trump. Beyond criticism?

    As the extant Trump threads have been closed, does this mean that, unlike previous presidents, the president-elect is now being regarded as being beyond criticism, or even beyond discussion? I can't think of any other reason why threads on Trump should be closed.

    They're almost as bad as triumphalist winners who alienate the significant numbers of people who don't agree with them.

    Donald Trump and Republicans

    indeed. The same pattern of racist and populist demagoguery are being peddled throughout Europe. The xenophobic anti-immigrant rhetoric and sentiment that resulted in the victory of the Brexiteers, despite the obvious dishonesty of the campaign, has been mirrored in the US, and is similarly...
