Pro

Whilst I am renowned for my compassion and respect for flids, mongs and other window-licking spackers, I don't believe that they should be allowed on the London Underground during the rush hour.

They don't always stand on the right-hand side of the escalator and thus cause undue delay for commuters who wish to walk up and, furthermore, they don't know how to use the barriers properly and so cause additional delays there as well.

As I said, I've got nothing against spazzas as people (unlike the obese, it's not their fault they are the way they are) but their carers should not be allowed to release them onto the public transport system during busy times.

Con

In the interest of removing this rubbish as quickly as possible...

1. A physical or mental deficit does not equate to a lessening off an individuals rights to public access.

2. It is more an act of society handicapping the individual by failing to account for a minorities need.

Whoops, too late! Remember, I was only joking, albeit in very bad taste.

I think you are right...It's probably best to pull this one before my reputation is completely ruined!

Apparently sarcasm does not translate well.

Hi Spiral.

I don't think it would be possible...that's why I've limited it to 1 round only.

Perhaps you can think of some even more offensive adjectives to describe mentally handicapped people? If so, please take up the debate and incorporate them into your reply!

Perhaps round 2 you could try to be even more offensive.
