Lost? I would have voted no in that referendum too.

If you would have voted no but are instrumental in censoring the reasons for doing so, you are a very confused person.

But at least Jack has a basic grasp of grammar. As to calling Jack 'confused' after your various racist rants, I imagine that this is just another example of your well developed sense of self-parody.

Looks like it's over, Greece has won. Carl, in the light of this, any chance of restoring the pro-Greece comments which you removed earlier?

I removed nothing and didn't see the comments posted but I am here now to monitor.

So how many people here do have the power to remove comments with which they disagree?

You ( Jack) seem to delete anything that appears to criticise important people in the EU,

The point was not that the comments were ones with which I disagreed - I allow all kinds of comments with which I disagree to remain. The point was specifically the comparison of the EU leadership to Nazis. The EU leadership have all kinds of policies to which I take exception, but they are not genocidal fascists.

Produce some examples of their "genocidal fascism", then.

And I am somebody who, like Jack, is very pleased that Greece voted "No".

Highly humorous, I'm sure, but I would still like to know. I understand that you're irritated that your guys have lost a silly vote of the general population, but what is wrong with my grammar?

I didn't see Nick's comments, and am a bit surprised at the strength of his anger, but I have to say, Mike, I also am curious to know what precisely is wrong with his grammar. It is perhaps unconventional nowadays to use the conditional mood in the way that used to be considered proper, but it seems extreme to me to regard so doing as bad grammar.
