Okies.... I'm an old (ageist) f cker (anti lesbian), white (anti everything else) working class (anti lower and middle and upper (if you're buying into it)), but believe in freedom of speach (anti moderator) as long as it is within legal parameters (anti anarchist) of not inciting violence (anti boxers).
Why didn't gC (not, GC) just stick to his position, give no other comments, if that was the only issue he resigned on?
Something fishy (anti vegan) about this..

I felt sorry for Greg Clarke as this not about racism, but egg-shell treading in 2020. What a ridiculous world we live in.
John Sopel on weekend described VP of US as first woman "of colour" to be elected.
He used the word "coloured", apologised and said that he HAD worked in US and got his words wrong.

One of us is off.
If your account is still active by the time I shut my computer tonight I'll be deleting mine.
I'm not hanging around for your next assault, which will almost certainly contain plenty more swearing and disgusting personal insults. In fact, scratch that, I'm off anyway, I don't want to be anywhere near you. The most vile individual I've ever encountered on any of the mesageboards I've ever been active on.
Not sure anyone has to. The irony of it! When you perceive stuff has “been done to you” we all react differently. This Summer some took a break from here and then returned. Some deleted then re-registered and carried on. BG is a grown up and has decided on what suits him so good luck to him. Hope he’s ok and comes back. UTG!
