I really don't get why you all have such a downer on her, but then I suppose we have quite similar views. I sometimes wonder if it's that old male discomfort when confronted by women with brains and opinions though.

I always presumed that the Southover Queen was male. I thought only a man could profess to be such an expert on absolutely everything but as they say opinions are like a-holes, everyone's got one.

I don't recall anyone ever having a problem with its gender! But well done Bruce, perhaps (s)he's too busy swanning around town all puffed-up with pride because there is a thread all about him/her. Any suspicious sightings? Thought there was an odd one strutting around School Hill earlier this morning....

Probably buying her finest Sirloin from Offham before going to the Kings Head for lunch, followed by the Pelham Arms for the evening. Then giving advanced driving lessons tomorrow morning. Funny though, he never has more than a couple of quid to rub together.

Yep, it would be nice if a few other people had the intelligence of SQ on here. It would make it worth reading a little more often.

The person you are posting about is very well-informed, and I have often noticed him/her to give sensitive and helpful advice to people. What is the matter with you whingers? Could it be that you are jealous? Certainly, I wish I were equally intelligent and erudite, but I am not, so never mind, I still enjoy my life in my limited way, and appreciate what wiser people can contribute.

That's the trouble Blip. I don't believe SQ is so well informed. the majority of the information comes from the internet. When he comes up against someone with practical experience of a subject he disapears into the background. Granted, he has a better command of English than me, but then so have most liberal academics.

You know how funny that is, don't you Country Boy? Where do get 'information' from other than an 'information' source? Or do you conjure it up from nowhere? AKA 'making it up'.

I probably didn't make myself clear and that is where SQ is better at this than me. To me, being "well informed" means having knowledge and experience. So many people today think they know it all, simply because information is so easy to come by via the internet. You can't beat experience. Further, much of what SQ preaches (and lets be honest here, he is very patronising) is politically biased, so it is one sided to say the least.

I thought SQ was a well known mature lady living in the Southover area; until I hit a raw nerve by mentioning homosexuals. That made me wonder if she (or he ) was not another type of "queen"! However, I do enjoy reading the posts from this obviously highly intelligent lady, even if she is a bit brainwashed by being left-wing.
The season's greetings to you, Southover Queen.

By which I assume you mean, Country Boy, 'has a point of view'. And you probably also mean 'Has a point of view I disagree with.' You remind me of one of those unfortunate people who either did not have the opportunity for an education or, if they did, wasted the opportunity. They spend the rest of their lives telling everyone 'Education, waste of time. University of life, that's where I learned everything I know.' And doesn't it always show.

Yeah, agreed again Clifford, I sometimes wish I wasn't as liberal minded as I am, its becoming a bit of a chore having to tolerate Country Boy/Bruce Willis etc. and her girlfriends, and their ilk, to impart 'their' silly opinions, which rarely amount to more than a bitching.

Jump on my horse Southover Queen and I will take you away from the baying mob. We can look down on the unruly mob from my castle and perhaps throw insults at them. Anyway enjoy your Christmas one and all and I am sure deep down you would miss Southover Queen if She or He ever left this forum.

Expat and Clifford my heart goes out to you both, being as liberal minded as the two of you must be awful. But you should be celebrating , the king of British communists is back in the news, good old Arthur Scargil. How dare the miners union not pay for his London flat any more, after all he did for them. But still , just hearing his name on the news or reading it in the papers must have made you both feel a whole heap better, Merry Christmas Brothers. Hopefully see you at the hunt on boxing day.

I hope to see Southover queen back on the forum soon. She is excellent value, intelligent, backs up her opinions with openly sourced information and is prepared to debate with anyone without resorting to name calling, which so many on this forum do.
Seasons Greetings to all , and I hope all is well with SQ

So do I.

Liberalism: Handy catch-all term used by those like Boris to tar a whole range of outlooks with one brush so don't have to bother with thinking and can continue to take comfort in sneering at those that they fear are intellectuality superior to them.

Only someone with as limited an outlook, and as small minded and bigoted as Boris could confuse liberalism with supporting rent payments for Arthur Scargill's flat.

Idiot.

The political side of this thread reminds me of a young colleague at work in 1980, just after the winter of discontent. I said to him "you won't always be a socialist, you will grow out of it". I met him a few years later when he had a wife and children and a mortgage. He said: "You were right. I may even vote tory next time".

Oh dear. This thread seems to have backfired a bit, doesn't it? (I don't mean the political stuff which is all very much as expected).

Thanks to all for your concern, those who expressed it. Like ACT I've no idea why I should attract such vilification and yes sometimes it's a bit wearing. One of the more puzzling accusations thrown at me is that I'm a bully: I wonder if the boot isn't ever so slightly on the other foot.

Anyway, I wish everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas and splendid New Year.
