QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperI notice that neither of you have any sympathy for the victimThe pronoun neither is the subject of the sentence. Neither is singular and requires a singular verb.ergo: 'has'. // Like 'none were injured'.

QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperI notice that neither of you have any sympathy for the victimYou can't know that. Just because someone doesn't publicly express their sympathy doesn't mean they don't have sympathy.

QuoteOriginally posted by: daveangelQuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnQuoteOriginally posted by: daveangelQuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperand RIP the deceased: a mother and father have lost their son, wife or girlfriend has lost her beau, siblings have lost their brother, and perhaps children have lost their father.I know nothing of the man who died (I'm not sure if he has been named) other than that he was in the UK military.There is no good way to die and this seems to have been a particularly horrid way to die.This poor man was targeted simply because he had enlisted in his countries armed forces and the perpetrators picked a random member of the UK military to die,viewing this murder as a tit-for-tat attack. I've heard reports that there have been at least 2 previous plots (thankfully foiled by the UK authorities) to kill serving military personnel on recent yearsyou mean country's not countries.You forgot the kommaQuotecountry's, not countriesarrgghhhhhhhYeah, those damned kommas.

If you must know, I have tremendous sympathy for the poor soldier who was brutally murdered in Woolwich on Wednesday 22 May 2013. My thoughts, for what they are worth, are with his family, friends and colleagues.

My thoughts, for what they are worth, are with his family, friends and colleagues.And what about empathy/sympathy (English is difficult) to the quite numerous members of my family murdered and kidnapped (without a trace) by muslims? To be honest - it happened before Wilmott forum, even before internet. But you know - they are still dead.
