I'm surprised that your rules allow this sort of posting which I find quite threatening from someone called Lionel:

"Who is this Andi White? Oh, please don't bother to tell me, there's so much drivel around ... and most of it Socialist.

You're a troll. I've read so similar stuff in the Independent comments and the Guardian. Silly people without a grasp on reality. Like you, they only exist because others do a real job and, sadly, by political donations, make your life possible. That means you're a troll and a leech.

Your avatar is familiar. It reminds me of a deceiver, a hireling liar. Is that you? I think so.

We'll meet again, but I'd use another computer, if I were you, in another country. Got you logged!"
