Yes indeed. However written speech should not be subject to emotion either.
When you're writing a factual talk, maybe. Otherwise, this an absurd statement. Emotion has an enormous bearing on our lives, why shouldn't it affect written speech? I'm quite sure that emotion plays such an important role in our lives, that it'd be quite the challenge to write anything without your emotions having [i]some[i] effect. Also, what do you mean by 'written speech'? Do you mean, in particular, written word that is intended to be spoken, or are you using it analogously to the phrase 'written word'?

In addition to this, what about novels, poems, haiku... How can you even consider writing for entertainment without emotion playing some role.

In that case I hope your fate is the same.
His response was to someone who said something along the lines of "This is why I would never live in London".

Yuo, unless you can live in the likes of Highgate or Hampstead or Kensington.
It's amazing that people pay extortionate prices to live in such small places and not pleasant surroundings. So overrated IMO.

It's the lifestyle. I've no qualms with you if you don't like it, but some (I suppose a lot, given the population) people love how there's always something going on, and access to the best gigs/shows/whatever else.

Most of the UK has a bad rep. In fact, most places in the world are criticised for something or other. Wh would describe any of the bigger cities in the UK as "safe" or "nice places to live". Those few places that ARE described like that are also described as "boring".

Because Suddam is old, lazy and fat after all those years of luxury lifestyle.
I don't think it's particularly fair to describe a corpse as "lazy". It's hardly got the choice of being energetic.

Yup I see that. I just think people underestimate how much there is on offer in a Manchester, or an Edinburgh or Brighton, or wherever else. It's too much seen as the be all and end all. Loads of other places have good clubs, gigs, theatres, sporting facilities etc etc etc.

Absolutely horrific, and once again makes me ashamed to be Bristish.
Why on earth would this make you ashamed of your nationality?

That answer doesn't actually fit the question I asked, but I guess I see where you're going with it.

Because there's no crime in Manchester or Edinburgh or Brighton? The former in particular has several areas which are very dangerous.

Yes I know Manchester is rough. But you can live in a decent suburb way cheaper than London. Crime wasn't the only factor -I was responding to the poster about stuff to do, general lifestyle, prices etc.

Well not on its own, but this news adds to my growing feeling of embarrassment at the British attitude towards foreigners in general. My hope is that the deaths were not race-related and that the media's focus on the victims' French nationality is unnecessarily provocative, but on the face of it I feel the media are encouraging us to believe that their French nationality is relevant. I truly hope it is not.

I have never felt any need to be blindly proud of my nationality, not having been born in England and having moved so many times I don't have many strong roots anywhere.

Twice in the last week, I've read in the ZaNu Labour mouthpiece "The Guardian" that crime is falling. This is in the same week that the 17th under-16 year old was murdered in London this year, and now these two poor students.
Round this way, a drunk man ploughed at high speed into an innocent pedestrian and drove off, leaving him dead, and a yardie drug dealer with no right or reason to stay SIX YEARS beyond his visa was caught with a massive amount of drugs and cash.

Both are out on bail and free to roam the streets.

I really never thought I'd say this, but I think it's time to get a bit vigilante. I can honestly see vigilante groups springing up. There are already private police forces here now. What have we come to?
