If Ian O'Doherty goes to hell, I'll follow him

I am an expatriate now living in Poland and Ian O'Doherty's articles are a great source of trivial amusement, comic relief and, God forbid, some sanity in a modern society where, thanks to evolving communications, complaining has been elevated to a dangerous preoccupation for some.

I don't always agree with some of Mr O'Doherty's rants, opinions or conclusions but I do respect his right to have a different opinion than my own.

Generally though, I find we are both on a similar wavelength, so at least I won't be alone in hell. And that is the important point, with the freedom to communicate freely we seem to have lost the respect for others to have differing opinions. Those who hold opposing views are castigated.
