Thanks, though I think you were pretty clear and what you said made
perfect sense. I thought I'd made it clear that I accepted what you
said entirely. I am usually pretty good at listening to arguments and
taking them on board. As I said, I ended up being caught out by my own
attempt to make too find a distinction.

Thanks. Apology accepted.

I was pretty careful not to even find out what the party line was. I
only looked at a part of the explanatory notes when people started
talking about them. Like you I much prefer not to have my mind
cluttered with what the government says they are doing with a law.
Maybe I should make a point of reading them through afterwards to make
sure I don't inadvertently toe the line.

I'm being kept awake for other reasons - I hope you have a good night.
