Currently this: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Is the most true I guess!

I'm a little surprised at that, Ed, but early days I suppose.....more good folk to vote yet....see whether the leader changes.
Question Author
I would have thought this was no.1 in all honesty:

A watched pot never boils

Because, quite frankly, the tea round takes forever if I am anywhere near the kettle.

Here we go.. .......i knew they were out there....lol ........now the chase is on :0)
I agree with you there, Ed.......thats one i did tick and vote for too :0)
Question Author
Certainly is Yogi!

I will do some more of these if they catch on. I like the idea of taking a pulse of a community by offering defining "truths" to agree or disagree with!

Spare Ed
LOL...Spare Ed.

....remind me to bring a flask with me if I ever visit AB Towers then......lol

You're team must be parched if you're on the tea rounds.

Question Author
Dr.Filth, I would have put it in there, had I thought of it.

I am glad: "I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend, to the death, your right to say it. "

is creeping up the poll.

Spare Ed
A witty saying proves nothing.
How many of those who checked "I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend, to the death, your right to say it.", would really be willing to die defending another's beliefs? Most of us are not even prepared to die defending our own...
I'm just happy to get my bottle, and have a good splash in my nappy.
