Actually, it's your tête a tête, I was only straightening you out on your threat assertions. Like the EU dictatorship "threat", this one also isn't a threat.

It's not unlike someone who would say, smash their TV because they didn't like what's on the news, then claim damages because of unfair practices of the broadcaster.

Simple Definition of threat. : a statement saying you will be harmed if you do not do what someone wants you to do. : someone or something that could cause trouble, harm, etc. : the possibility that something bad or harmful could happen.

I have to correct you again. The statement was a reiteration if the same policy that's existed for decades, abd frankly, one that is completely sensible.

And, in the event of Britain choosing to effectively reduce its "footprint" in the world, naturally, there would be no particular motivation to negotiate any new trade agreement. They're already finalising one (after many years of negotiation) with the EU, one of the largest trading blocs in the world. Britain, separately, represents only a mere fraction of that.

It wasn't a threat, merely an explanation of how the world actually works. Something this debate could really use.

I know that seems unreasonable to you, and you want to spin it as a "threat", but that's simply how the world works. Obama was actually trying to tell us that, but we're so self-centered and still believe we're the dog's bollocks, we just can't accept it, even if it's the hard truth.

Warning: a communication that if you do x then something bad may happen to you.

Threat: a communication that if you do x then I may do something bad to you.

I think Obama was giving a warning, not a threat.

I'm with you there. No store is so huge that you can't haul your fat arse back to the shelf you got an item from to put it back if you don't want it. I do that all the time.

Also, **** people who can't put trolleys back in the designated storage areas in the car park. Ever bloody day I see millions of lazy mother****ers who just dump them at their arse and drive off, often blocking a parking space. Twats.

Oh just shoving them in the vague direction and then ignoring the trolley crashing into the car parked next to the trolley park

Oh yeah, I've seen that too. Or on windy days I've seen them slam into cars when I haven't had time to jump out of my own car to try to stop them rolling.

Then there's the people who sit right in the middle of the damn aisle, waiting for someone parked in the first few spaces to pack seventeen billion bags into their boot because it would just kill their delicate little feet to walk an extra 50 feet to the entrance of the store. **** them, too.

Don't get me started on the people who blatantly ignore the '15 items or less' signs in the express lane, or who take a fully stuffed trolley through the self checkout.

Serves you right for shopping in a supermarket that doesn't have "15 items or fewer" signs.

Did a big shop over the weekend, this is just my normal way of blowing off steam. I've never been grocery shopping when the store isn't chock full of asshats, of course.
