So I want to make this proposal, but if I do, you'll be irritated and 
won't listen.

No, that doesn't work...

Could I politely ask that you not bring up the subject of irritation, so 
I could lay this proposal before people who haven't made up their minds 
about principalities, or who might be convinced to change their positions?

Now that seems a little better...


I'll try not to be irritating, could we focus on the debate?

That sounds good.  What do you think?
