There is nothing wrong with a bit of discussion between those who hold one side of the debate and those who hold the other. The idea that the soaps should go out of production because of the restrictions and that the existence of Dancing on Ice on the tellybox was a foible to lob the restrictions rulebook out the window was a ridiculous thing to suggest in the first place to be frank. That's sort of like saying I can't get a new MOT because I shouldn't be using the car, not withstanding the fact it's also illegal to have a car on the public road without an MOT - it either has to have one or be SORNed (or I relinquish ownership of it, which solves the MOT problem but leaves me without a car).
Anyway you have your viewpoint and I have mine. Let us agree to disagree. Here, have an elbow bump
