And I am suggesting without specialist help from those qualified in  
law, it is absolutely pointless for us to debate it, as there is *no*  
way to make an informed and accurate decision on the matter.
Intelligence doesn't enter into the argument, after all, if it did,  
we would all defer our legal queries to Steven Hawkin, so we have  
another non-sequitur.

Once again, I am leaving the thread, as we are getting nowhere, it's  
off topic, and a waste of both our respective time.
