    The Labour party hates Jews

    He’s been very private on the matter of religion (which to me suggests he probably doesn’t have any strong religious feelings in any direction). That said he had a Christian upbringing and has referred to Christian values as being ones he broadly tries to follow.. so I guess if anything he probably is very slightly Christian, or has a positive bias in that direction.

    I was hoping for something a little more juicy than “lady has a rant at JC and calls him an anti-Semite”. Well.. case closed Isn’t this all just because JC is very pro-Palestinian, which therefore seems to make him some kind of enemy in the eyes of those who see themselves on the other side of that very silly squabbling match? My enemy’s friend is my enemy.. or something like that. Frankly the whole thing is incredibly boring. Playground politics at their worst.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    That was pretty much the choice we had last time.. but apparently we gave the wrong answer

    Sure You’ll need to reconcile that against your own binary position though.

    I'm quite keen on the second referendum idea. Just two options though: Hard Brexit Soft Brexit

    Well, your reaction would probably depend on whether the kids looked scared or not.. and how close. To an extent though, if dogs playing on the beach scares kids, perhaps it’s a good way for kids to get used to being around animals if they don't have any at home. Obviously, if they are properly fighting that is completely different.

    Fair dos on the rich agricultural upbringing.. I wonder if the younger you would have minded so much about muddy clothes? Of course, you are right to a point.. dogs jumping up at you are anti social in the same way as people’s cats crapping in other people’s gardens is. Well, not quite as bad but perhaps still annoying for some. I would say it depends a bit on the social situation as to what might be expected.. but out in the countryside on an off-road walk. Well, perhaps we won’t reach agreement on that one. If you were walking down the high street in work trousers I can see you might be miffed. To me I just know that dogs get excitable (some more than others) and it doesn’t really bother me.. in fact I just sort of expect it and enjoy having a friendly dog bounding up to me. If I don’t want paw marks on my clothes I generally bend down and use an arm to shield my clothes. I guess since I don’t mind it is easy for me to tolerate. Perhaps dog owners probably should train their dogs not to jump up at people.. I’m sure my father did. Equally though it seems such a trivial thing to get worked up about. Bit of mud? Come on, it’s not really the end of the world 🙂. I guess I would argue it’s just being tolerant of other people. Other people, other people’s kids, other people’s dogs, neighbours not returning that screwdriver you leant them.. there are some things that just aren’t worth fussing over.. live and let live etc. People just don’t have big enough problems to worry about any more

    I found it very annoying, but I accepted that the world doesn't revolve around me. I tolerated it to keep good relations (and in the hope he would forgive me any of my annoyances). That said, living next to a rural rat run my irritation didn't last long. Karma perhaps?

    Eye opening thread for me.. how times have changed. I'm sure it wasn't that long ago that people walking in the countryside expected to get a little bit muddy. I guess we're all so much more civilised now

    Hopefully people will apply the same logic to cats too. The criteria for having a cat license should be proving you can train it not to shit and piss in your neighbours garden. One strike you're out and the cat is donated to the kebab shop.

    I guess I understand your concern, especially if you've not grown up around dogs. Were the dogs actually fighting? I only ask because that's pretty rare in my experience. Dogs love 'ragging' and chasing each other around, just like kids do. Are you sure it wasn't that? Dogs fighting is usually very quick and passes with both leaving in oposite directions. Proper dogs fighting is brutal and you'd definitely. In that case you'd be pretty justifed in your concern if it was near your daughter and she was scared.

    If you look at it from the other person’s point of view.. they have a warm fuzzy family pet that wouldn’t hurt a fly. They like to go to the beach and let it run around in the water and have doggy fun. They don’t imagine anyone would ever be scared of their pooch because because he’s a big softy. To be honest.. that is the view I tend to take if I’m walking my parents Labrador along the beach. Obviously, if someone is visibly upset by her proximity / presence I’ll whistle her back. Is this a breed issue, or general cynophobia issue or something else? It doesn’t sound as though any of the dogs have actually given you any reason to think they will attack you?
