Everyone is entitled to an opinion and post it as they wish, but not to the detriment to others.
I do not expect this forum to be PC, heavens above that would be bloody boring, but can we stop the bickering and sniping just to gain points.Can we at least be polite and understand that some members have different understandings to us.

AND, can we bicker on the OFFICIAL thread rather than CONTAMINATING every other goddam thread with the moaners griping !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WARNING.!!... The above post may contain an opinion

Academia and government artificially select for particular traits, among which is a lack of life experience. This is why it's possible for a person to be exceptionally bright while failing to grasp something as rudimentary as supply and demand.

Andy, you, and others, have said this "In a democratic society the minority accept the majorities wishes. " and other versions of it many times.

I think this is where the disagreement between us originates. You appear to be saying in that phrase, and other versions of it, that you think that once the referendum result was announced that should have ended the matter.

I, and others, believe that is to ignore the fact that the referendum was advisory only, and several other important considerations surrounding the vote. It ignores the fact that we still have no idea what brexit will actually entail and the fact that our PM has been trying to avoid allowing Parliament to debate the topic preferring to begin the process of taking the UK out of the EU on her own signature. Many Brexiters are content apparently to ignore these dubiously democratic considerations and concentrate on just one aspect, the referendum result.

I'm saying that while I accept the result, how could I not? It's a matter of fact. I don't think the matter ends there. In politics everything is up for reconsideration, that's democracy, as you know.

We are all free to express our views in the hope that they may prevail, that's democracy too.

So I'll be very happy to discuss the issues and developments with anybody but it would go better if all the Brexiters would follow your excellent example and allow that remainers are entitled to hold and express views, even if the Brexiters don't agree with them.

Why don't you put a sock in it, I hate saying this to anyone, but you just don't know when to dry up.

You don't hate saying it. You've been saying the equivalent to anybody who defends their right to express an opinion on Brexit for weeks.

I do not see the point of a thread talking about exchange rates and drifting into politics.

There are lots of factors that affect exchange rates - economic, bank rates, short-selling, George Soros and the like.

If you want to know the rate you will get go onto the website where you do your exchange.

I have noted this week that the rate betweeen the £ and the Polish Sloty has been worse in the morning than the afternoon. I moved some money last evening - the rate is worse this morning. I gained 1% - peanuts, but it pays for a bottle of Cava for when Basia comes home tomorrow. That is more important in life IMO.

Hope you both continue to keep well.

Me? ... Disappointed with this forum. What happened to discussing good old MoHo topics etc? Just about had it 'listening' to all the crap flying about.

Probably time to go now.

Best wishes to everyone on the run up to Xmas, and a safe, happy and above all healthy 2017..

Esp' you guys Sandra. You both deserve it.

Alex...

Where in hell has this expression 'MoHo' come from?????? I am seeing it everywhere........... Awful expression!!

You are easily distressed!! By an abbreviated word??? (not an expression) But... Always nice to see someone with a good gripe. Well worth it too. What is this wold coming to when people will not fully write out the full words.. Tisc tisc tisc.

Mohos.. That's what this forum should be all about.. Moho's. NOT POLITICS.

Great fun these Mohos But why we bother with this Moho forum god knows.

The hatred is really something now. Shining through loud and clear. Not for me though. Not anymore.

Another member ..... GONE.. Congratulations...


Hey Sandra..

We are off this forum now so just a quick all the best to yourself and Albert. We wish you all the luck and good health possible..

Take care and sorry to say.... Goodbye Sandra.

Alex black..
