Tolerance

Every time I read our mouthy politicians preaching “tolerance” it does make me cringe. It sounds like “I will just tolerate you cos oh well, I guess I have to”. Tolerance isn’t acceptance. It’s guarded, cautious, much like “we are watching you carefully just in case you step out of line”.

am I the only one who sees it that way?
