No, I never said any of those things.poohcarrot wrote:So are you both saying that;
a) Vimes has never been bribed?
b) He never allows the other Watch personnel to accept bribes?
c) He has never broken the law and not been held accountable?
PS I don't think my comment was obnoxious in the slightest. Cynical, maybe.
As Dotsie pointed out, his younger self in Night Watch, before he came under the influence of John Keel, was being influenced by other members of the Watch who would certainly accept bribes.
I'm talking about the Vimes of Feet of Clay. I never mentioned anything about what he allows other members of the Watch to do and I never mentioned anything about him breaking the law. I'm puzzled that you think I did.
I did say that in many ways Vimes was as strongly moral as carrot. By that I mean that Vimes believes in the law, but he will use very different methods to Carrot to make sure that the law is kept.
And I'd agree that you are more cynical than obnoxious.
