2019, Graeme Wall remarked:

Tell me how Khan could have appointed different contractors?
¬******** Boris was mayor when it started but Livingstone¬* was mayor in
******* the actual run up, when, presumably, the contractors were
******* appointed.

¬*I thought this red herring had died.
¬*When did I suggest Khan should be appointing contractors?


Lost yourself again? Look at the first line you've quoted,
though¬* as¬* you've snipped the attributions you will, no doubt,
be even¬* more¬* confused.
¬*It was asked by michael adams[1], and my reply (which has been
snipped¬* by along the way) was to deny I'd claimed he [or former
mayors] should¬* be involved in choosing any contractors.
¬*Why have you resurrected this zombie?

Look at the dates, I haven't, you have by coming in late.
¬*Which dates? I see you commenting on a thread the relevant bits of
which¬* are over a week ago.

Pleas yourself, you have again magnificently missed the point just
so¬* you can start an arguement with yourself.
¬*As ever, you'll have to explain what exactly the point is, as far as
you¬* perceive it.
¬*To possibly shorten the agony, no-one has suggested Khan, or any
previous Mayor[1], should be appointing contractors.
¬*[1] I've restored the bit which got lost, for clarity.


No you haven't. You have carefully snipped the original statement


Date and author please, so we can find it easily.

and my follow-up questions. Also Recliner's link to an article that
lead to the appropriate answers.


We can do that later.


I'm sorry, is this a five minute argument, or the full half hour?

Graeme has the means to truncate it to five minutes.

That's fair enough, but confirms my view that the posting which started
this subthread was a complete wobbler. Glad we got that sorted.

On balance, as you refuse to justify your position, it fails.

You really are pathetic, desperately trying to have the last word so you
can justify in your own mind "winning" an argument that only ever
existed i your head. For heaven's sake grow up and stop acting like a
spoilt child.

It's hard to believe that Roland was once a high flying international
business executive. Although I suppose it's this sort of childish behaviour
that brought that career to an end.

I was giving you the benefit of the doubt that you had an actual point
to make earlier. I'm disappointed that you didn't back it up, but if you
had, then *that* would have resulted in me "losing the argument" (about
the Mayors not appointing contractors).

Wrong on both counts. I'd never call myself (any sort of) business
executive. And if asking (in a roundabout way) "cite" is childish
[rather than standard Usenet protocol], then at least I did it without
resorting to personal insults.
