Ernie was correct, I have no intention of reading that report. I've told you quite clearly my opinion as to why what is being done is not only a very bad idea, but possibly even constitutes dereliction of duty by the ruling coalition. The facts I've used to come to this conclusion, I feel, are supported by common knowledge and insight. They seem to echo what other posters have stated.
So, THM, you tell me why I'm wrong. Or, accept that you are.
Try explaining, rather than ranting, and you may find others more open to your viewpoint. This is, after all, the point of a discussion. Not only to get your point across, but to also listen to alternative views, and perhaps take them on board somewhat.
