Quite a numlber who might be expec ted to go with. the majority have ex pressed themselves as holding oppo site views. I notice that "Also a Loyalist" does not attempt to refute any of the arguments advanced by me -. this, I claim, is tantamount to an endorsement of the views expressed by the other side. He refers to the "infallible judgement" matter which as a statem-n...
