After reading through the comments and getting a flavour for the discussion.
Doesn't matter. I'll comment if I feel like it.
Commenting on the internet is a good way to…
Engage in an informed discussion.
Hit out at the political elite.

"OF COURSE HE DOES!" The sooner him and his ilk are slung out the better!!!!!!!"
"This is a blatant ploy to distract us away from water charges and the housing crisis!"

Never one to jump in with both feet, you're balanced and considerate when you comment on the internet. You prefer a considered debate on the TTIP to a gladiatorial showdown on water charges. TJ Love will steer you towards like-minded moderates.

You know what you like: facts. The occasional political diatribe is all very good, but what about the hard info? Edelweiss the Austrian national anthem? Wrong. Einstein failed maths in school? Wrong. TJ Love will pair you with someone with just as much of an eye for details.

You didn’t come down in the last shower - or the shower before for that matter. You head to the comments section to show that you won’t be taken in by the latest political spiel. You’re nobody’s fool, so let TJ Love help you find nobody else’s fool (if you catch our drift).
