Never mind I suppose the $300 Billion Arms deal they just made means the Saudi King was not that upset with FLOTUS.
Can you show us some examples of what these 'warming to Womens rights' are, please?

btw, according to Sean Spicer, the deal is worth $109.7 billion.

In Saudi Arabia @POTUS has just completed largest single arms deal in US history, negotiating a package totaling more than $109.7 billion

Certain words are allowed and have been for some time. There are ones still in the filter that obviously still cannot be used.

No. I did say perhaps with a question mark. Did you miss this ?

So, an unsupported supposition?

Fake news, perhaps?

Can you provide examples where it's not supported, instead of doing your usual silly winking?

Can I nominate the phrases "Trump lied" and "Trump is wrong" as candidates for the swear filter. It would make oversight of this thread a lot more explicit

Erm, you put forward the statement, up to you to support it, not me to disprove it..

There is only progress if there is evidence to support it.

Otherwise, as you are so fond of saying, "fake news".

Sorry Hugh, I have to support Mick here.

He did not put forward a statement so there is nothing he needs to support.

Statements don't end with a question mark, they normally end with either a full stop or !

Technically, there are two elements to the last part of Mick's sentence:
1. "perhaps the Saudis warming to Women's rights" which is formally a statement and doesn't have a question mark after it.
2. "which is surely progress from two years ago?" which is formally a question and does have a question mark after it.

From what Mick has subsequently added, he feels both are questions. As the poster, the onus would be on Mick to prove something and not for Hugh to disprove it.

picked the wrong side again - not sure if that's a statement or a question

Thanks for that fine forensic analysis, however....

.... You get 0/10 For your English skills today, starting the question, which it was, starting with perhaps and ending the same sentence as a whole, which it was, was a question. So no it is not on me to support a question at all.
