In Australia, insulting the Prime Minister is a national sport! :lol:
Has been that way for many decades, no exemptions!
Yep. And it really used to be that way in America too.

Old newspapers often had articles and editorial cartoons very critical of public officials (often insulting)...and doing worse than calling them stupid. Then came the Pledge of Allegiance and the flag waving of the anti-communism era and some people didn't see, and still don't see, the parallel between that and fascism.

Being able to criticize your public officials is a GOOD thing.

Look, nobody is taking your right to be critical of politicians away. Hell, write editorials bashing him all day if you want and send them to newspapers. My problem is not the fact that you criticised him, but rather that you did it in an international internet forum, where sensitivities and sentiments toward our country might not be good as it is. If you liberals think President Bush has done international relations harm, as you all like to scream, do you think you are helping anything by dragging our president through the mud for the rest of the world to read? Please think responsibly about what you are doing! You are only contributing to the negative sentiments, not trying to repair them!!!

This forum needs to be about Electronics and fun things! Not negativities. We shouldn't be bringing up such hostile subjects and expressing hostile opinions. It is not good, and the end result is never good. There are plenty of political forums out there that are more appropriate. These are places where people actually WANT to read this kind of stuff.

I totally agree! Thank you for adding that amendment to the posting guidelines.

I voted Australia because I now live there. Maybe I should have voted UK as the question is "Where are you from" not "Where do you live".

Anyway, good to see Aus is well supported.

Heathtech.. I was born in Taxachusetts, er Massachusetts, but moved here as soon as I realized the quality of life was sooo much better here.
That was 27 years ago, only regret is that is that I didn't do it sooner.
Southern Hospitality is more than just a catch phrase, it's a way of life...
And yeah, if you " ain't from here" you probably wouldn't understand
Rocky Top or Big Orange... :D

Interesting to hear this "Terrible EU", in my country it is like the best thing that happened to us (We gained 2 car manufacturers in just a year :D ).

I'm quite suprised at how little of the active members here are from the UK. Australia is indeed well supported. There's an Australian Electronics supplier who advertises in Elektor Electronics every month and they have some quite interesting projects on offer, I've been tempted to order a catalouge.
