    This first thing that came to my mind, was all those who have questioned the lightning process.

    Cold

    "A chilling effect on public debate".

    Yes, it's been very cold here lately, a hard winter. Cold can have many consequences. (Does anybody know if Cold is OK btw? I have been quite worried about that question).

    I have never really understood Law, does this mean that anything and everything can now be questioned? Do we now know what kinds of things we are allowed to question? What should we be allowed to question?

    ETA: :victory::Retro smile::victory::Retro smile::victory::Retro smile::victory::Retro smile::victory::Retro smile::victory:

    ETA: Does it mean we can say anything we want about any public or private health service/treatment? Even if we're wrong? :eek::confused:;)

    ETA: I don't think it will make any difference to me, because I don't think I ever get anything wrong, but it might be useful for fallible people.

    Thank you, Mark, on behalf of "fallible" people everywhere for taking us into consideration. I hope you didn't strain yourself while doing so.
