    Ah.

    Yes, I do know I'm not the right public face for this.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    That's true enough. Middle-of-the-road, moderate, and balanced is a somewhat rare beast these days. When you have formulated a manifesto, I would be interested in having a read.

    Is Bruv suggesting in post #10 that you've got the face for radio?

    Joking apart, I hope you can produce an electable party. There's one heck of a pile of ongoing work running a party, and if you DO start to get anywhere near the threshold for gaining MP's, the main parties will all be taking pot-shots at you!

    Well, I can't fault the sense in that, or the honesty! Though you CAN get on peoples'wick' at times (we've had our moments, haven't we?),
    I also find you to be a mine of information, and a matchless sentinel overseeing Forum Garden security and dealing with technical issues.

    You can't have everything, it would seem....

    I've a suspicion it's the Tooting Popular Front, to be honest.

    Power to the People!

    You're right, I shouldn't speak to reporters.

    A brief question for the panel, if I may.

    I need a term for the smallest social group which can be taxed. The Revenue and the Benefits-people-as-was (who might now be called the Universal Creditors) know the following words: single person, couple, child(0::n). I'm reluctant to call a combination of these a Taxable Unit because it sounds a bit formal. Can I get away with Household, or is that something different?

    I fear Household may include Several Taxable Units if it includes grown children, cohabitees or separately-taxed marrieds but, if we discount Household, what can I use?
