As I said above, if everyone took as much interest in politics and the economy as they do in TV soap operas, and discussed them openly with others (as they do the soaps) we might not be in the collective mess that we now find ourselves in.

Perhaps there should be more political debate in the soaps? Just as long as it is balanced.

Finally, can I remind everyone that the sign above the Lounge door reads: "Relax, take a break from photo and camera talk - have a chat about something else for a change. Just keep it clean and polite!"

That would suggest that we shouldn't be discussing photography here.
I guess we'll have to agree to disagree then Nigel. My point is simply that I want to interact here without any fear of my perception of any of you being affected by my prejudices of your politics. I guess I can ignore the thread - that's probably the best thing
