Your initial post was lacking IMO. Simply saying that the "government are liars" has become a phrase that means feck all on here these days, it's a
call sign for nothing better to say except "I'm not a sheep", it's empty rhetoric IMO.

phrases and, lest I repeat myself rhetoric
, so please forgive me for misjudging you.
