If our people feel that they are part of a great thread and they are prepared to will the means to keep it great, a great Useless Thread we shall be, and shall remain. So, what can stop us from achieving this? What then stands in our way? The prospect of another winter of discontent? I suppose it might.
But I prefer to believe that certain lessons have been learnt from experience, that we are coming, slowly, painfully, to an autumn of understanding. And I hope that it will be followed by a winter of common sense. If it is not, we shall not be—diverted from our course.
To those waiting with bated breath for that favourite UT catchphrase, the 'U-turn', I have only one thing to say: "You turn back to Pokemon talk if you want to. The UT's not for turning." I say that not only to you but to our friends outside the UT and also to those who are not our friends.
