Barnsley...the BXpress was getting too political and I was largely to blame. I was at my computer most of the day and answered most anything that came up.

Guess mod removed it. He's not wrong, this is the BX forum, not one for debate.

I'm thinking of starting a forum for poltical debate. Interested?

Barnsley...OK, it'll take a few days to set up.

I'll host it outside UK so our friends who watch our every move won't be able to do much about it.

When it's done I'll post a link in this forum.

As Terry said it was getting a bit too political so I took the decision to remove it. The debate was good but not on here :wink:

Religion and politics have no place on this forum, we argue enough over cars and wheetrims without adding fuel to the fire :wink:

Who's argued over wheel trims?
Right, on to someone whose opinion on this matter, err, matters. Mr B, respect your decision and hadn't realise it had got to out of hand sorry though agree with Dean that a message might be good to say where it had gone.

Well, fair enough I guess, and ok this might be a car forum, but politics affects us all. Personally I think it was the best thread thats been on here for ages. But then I am very political, in a very right wing, capitol punishment kinda way.

Terry, YES! Believe it or not I was talking to my best mate about a forum for political debate this very afternoon, I'm in!

I also agree with Dean, since I seem to be at work whenever somebody blows up on here, or the sky caves in, a note to say it's gone and why would be good I think.

Tim, religion has no place anywhere. Politics should have a place everywhere, it affects us all, like it or not. The thread may have become a political hotbed, but it's good that people get passionate about politics still. If they didn't, we'd all be even more screwed than we are now.
