There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Tetenterre was actually playing one letter too many [and a substitution]. It's a variation that was introduced after some correspondence with Mrs Trellis proved fruitful.

I will admit to having considered that variation myself a couple of times.

Ah, I only thought about it 'cos there was this really ace . . .

I would opt for the purity of the basic game, "One letter too many", without the extras, otherwise there would be anarchy - if one extra why not two etc. :D

We couldn't possibly allow anarchy. I mean, people actually taking full responsibility for themselves and their deeds? Whatever next!

But Alan is correct -- I originally put "To Skill ...", and thought, hey, "Swill" would be better, and did it without noticing that I was contravening the rules. And Mrs Trellis of North Wales can go hang...

TT, thank you for correcting me on my sloppy use of the word "anarchy" - that is, of course, the best possible form of government (but requires human race sufficiently ethical and integrated to make it work!)
