I have noticed that since this site became a talking shop for firemen and thier apologists we seem to have lost many correspondents. Too many moderators where too quick jumping in and stopping debate just because they seem to think firemen had an equal right to spout unending political nonsense. But when non-firemen wanted to add to the debate we were directed to the NAAFI bar!!!! I am also deeply concerned by the amount of "anti-war" threads that have appeared of late. By all means question the rights and wrongs but this is verging on some sort of crusade to "stop the war". My final concern is the amount of bigoted and racist threads regarding anything from asylum seekers to ethnic minorities. A casual visitor to this site could think that he had landed on a BNP wed site!!
