Yes is always yes, explains our new advice columnist, Agony Uncle George.
So when you say, 'yes, dear, of course I love you,' that will always be the case. So says 4-times married Uncle George.
When you say 'yes' to visiting genocidal dictators and kowtowing to their propaganda stunts, that will always be the right thing to have done, no matter how many of their subjects they sent to their death. So says Uncle 'Friend of Saddam' George.
When you say 'yes, I will support you in the forthcoming election', that means that you will always support the candidate, no matter how crass their subsequent podcasts will be. So says serial constituency carpet bagger Uncle George.
When you say 'yes, I do seem to have the same views on women as the most antediluvian Daily Mail reader', that will probably always be true, too. Uncle George didn't say that, that was the rest of us.
