The Big Debate: Are there too many manners?

The Big Debate: Are there too many manners?

Girl number two is too polite to ask who stole her glass

Jon Holmes has been keeping a sharp eye out for the latest cutting-edge debate.

He discovered that a five kilometre cycle path, which would link Waddesdon Manor to Aylesbury Vale Parkway in Buckinghamshire, could be completed by the summer of 2017.

Naturally, this got Jon thinking about manors and indeed, manners. With so many manners about, is it time we got rid of a few?

Al was politely invited on to the show, but quickly made it plain that he did not believe there needed to be any decorum about it. 

"I think it's been a problem for years in this country," he roared. "There's too many good manners and they've got to stop."

However, Philippa just could not see why there was any need to be frightfully uncivilised about it.

"It's a wonderful thing to have your Ps and your Qs," she offered. "Bowing, knock on the door before you enter. If we did that the pregnancy rates would go down."

If one cares to, take a listen to the full debate, and kindly decide with whom you agree.
