      We are all entitled to opinions, and discussion is valuable. But it needs to kept in a good mannered form. I quite enjoyed most of the posts, though not brainy enough to join in...……...

          My experience of the Brixit discussion is that I get to know the opinions of (OK, a limited selection) of people, other than politicians and journalists, of which I would otherwise be unaware.

            Its always interesting and enlightening to discover other points of view. But they have to be made in a good mannered way, and respect others thoughts/ views. Getting overheated is a human condition, but most of here are of an age when we should be aware that "we are all friends" and thus take others views with respect and perhaps (hopefully) with appropriate humour.

            Whilst we are primarily interested in photography, Oly in particular, I see no reason why we cannot express "political" views, with manners and moderation.

              I make it a point to never say anything online I wouldn't say in person.
              Not sure that applies to everybody and rather cowardly if so.

              Internet seems to bring out another side to people hence all the online abuse.
              Can't imagine some saying the things they do face to face
              Always liken it to the people you see browsing magazines in WH Smith.

                Oh dear, when I posted this thread it was intended to encourage members to restrict their political discussions to the appropriate place. Instead it seems to have become yet another platform for debate. My bad, I guess, for not immediately closing it after posting.

                Well, let's put that right and in fact I think we could all do with a break so I'm at least temporarily closing the other thread too.
