A résumé of Juan Watterson Speaker of the House of Keys, would be considered spurious if it did not somehow mention that episode.

I can give you my background on this, if you like. In recent years, as I have aged, I find myself becoming increasingly angered by the attitude and behaviour of our elected representatives at nationa

Oh dear! Is that you, Rob? Trying to deflect attention from your obvious outing over on the Rob Callister MHK thread. #Pathetic #SocialMediaTraining #Ask4ARefund

Are we to assume that Juan Watterson has a better sense of humour than Rob Callister as this massive thread taking the piss out of Juan and his exploits is still open and allowable when a similar thread that takes the piss out of Callister has now been closed? I’m sure posters would be interested in knowing what the exact rules on taking the piss out of MHKs are which affects a threads long term viability and from comments being shut down. Some might wish to take the piss out of Juan and raise this thread again this Christmas so are we to assume it won’t be locked as Watterson actually has a sense of humour and can take the stick when others clearly do not?

Bit of "leaning on" gone on at a guess.

It would be good to know what the rules are as this forum does like to take the piss out people. It seems to happen a lot. Except in some clear cases recently were it seems ok to take the piss out of some MHKs but not others. It seems a bit arbitrary to be honest to close one thread yet allow another of equal size to continue right at a time it is usually resurrected each year. You can only assume it’s down to the subjects attitude to the piss taking. Maybe one has a sense of humour and the other doesn’t?

The closure of the Rob thread had nothing to do with taking the piss out of him, and everything to do with the pages and pages of absolute toss served up by total nutters.

It’s a matter of timing I think. The Rob thread was active at a time when action was needed.

You mean TJ got it closed in the end as many had already predicted by posting thread after thread of slanderous and mental rubbish until the Mods got fed up?
