Did you read the article you linked to, Stardelta?

It’s time we reflected on the horror of comparing working-class voters to pig meat.

Yet you appear to be doing just that?

I have never quite understood why someone would put another on ignore then go to the trouble of actually telling them they are on ignore. Kind of defeats the whole point if you ask me.

Still….. nowt as queer as folk and there are definitely some queer folk around here

For the purpose of clarity, here is a Gammon, and it is the most delicious cut of the cured pig, particularly if the pig has been cured in Denmark

Do you mean like you have done when I have asked you something?

Tommy Tee,
the OP is using gammons in a racism manner against working class people and brexit supports although he slams others for doing so,
double standards or what ?

Tom?
A point of observation on my behalf.

How can a comment directed at a certain group of people be deemed racist when the group of people concerned are not actually............a race?

You could argue its mildly discriminatory but then again so are jokes about blondes, dyslexics, scousers, leythers the overweight and of course council employees and many others sections of society, all of which have never seemed to bother you or anyone else in this forum or indeed yours for that matter

Well instead calling such people Gammons, why not just call them Pillocks instead

which would mean calling "some people" on here, that.

Stardelta: “You could argue it’s mildly discriminatory but then again so are jokes about …”

That’s the issue, Stardelta; the term isn’t being used here as a joke, but as a way to belittle people and their opinions.

Its a funny situation TTS. Those who object to being called gammon and term it as racist are usually the first to describe millennials as "snowflakes".

I wonder when the snowflakes are going to start claiming they are being racially abused as well????
