Words fail me What a country we live in Again a case of THE TAIL WAGGING THE DOG My mate has told me that there is a new series of DARLING BUDS OF MAY starting on Sunday (WHY what is wrong with the old version??? but we know why, there were no black people in it SOOOOO this time "CHARLIE" is black.
Also that the Blackpool Illuminations tableau of Red Indians dancing around a totem pole which has been there for as long as I can remember… is being removed as TWO PEOPLE complained.. When I was young I always said I WANTED TO LIVE FOREVER Not anymore..

Why let these things bother you, it’s meaningless and not as if any of this will affect your quality of life.
Those responsible and the media want an audience and a reaction and you are playing right into their hands.

It does bother me, not for me, but I wonder what sort of country my kids and grand kids will grow up in. Yesterday they put up a statue of a Black woman in Cardiff. Can you imagine the furor if it was a statue to a white person.

This is diversary behaviour and is not helping the black / white / brown issue at all.
How can we have 'equality' amongst different colours when they are constantly singled out as being 'different'?

Perhaps Cinderella should be banned as it highlights ugly sisters. I expect nearly every traditional children's story will now be scrutinised to ensure it conforms with the modern PC views!

"A more tolerant one perhaps?" There is only one group of intolerant people and they are the ones who are continually trying to change the course of History. I think the British people,as a whole, have been more than tolerant up to now, with people trying to change our heritage and our way of life. As I said, the statue of the Black woman in Cardiff is still standing after 1 day. I bet it wouldn't still be there or even put there in the first place if it had been a white person. If you perceive what I say to be Racist then Fine I've no problem with that. However I think I speak for the majority of British people.
The boxer Anthony Joshua said the all black people should only buy from shops owned by black people I would love to know. Do you class this as being racist? It appears that only white people are racist in your eyes

well put admin, I f we were to use the n*****r word, we would be prosecuted but, a black person can say it out loud in films, streets and on stage and its considered ok, how is that equality ??

Are the woke brigade going to try to ban Robinson Crusoe because his man friday was coloured? Also Any book with pirates with wooden legs or eye patches or hooks for hands because they would say the writers had a downer on disabilitiesIn real life did Lord Nelson not lose his arm and an eye during his life but ended up an Admiral

No I won’t.
If they want to try and change their world let them get on with it. They are not going to change my outlook and they don’t affect me on a personal level. Furthermore the situation is totally out of my control……therefore the whole thing is not even worth my time let alone concern.
All I see is the gammons with nothing better to do with their time moaning about others and thinking their opinion is the only one that matters

It’s comical Tom, it really is.
You and many others of your generation want to pigeonhole and insult sections of society different from yours and constantly complain about their motives and beliefs but if anyone does it to you, you kick off!
Where exactly is the difference?
Replied: 1st Oct 2021 at 13:30
Remember what I said earlier about a more tolerant society Tom?
Try being part of the solution for once instead of being part of the problem

Basil, yep I agree its coming to something when our own people have to rely on food banks and can't afford to keep warm. The basic necessities of life and the fundamentals of 'Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs' and yet we have people coming into this country under the guise of 'Asylum Seekers' who are given 3 meals a day, accommodation in decent places probably akin to a 5 star hotel in the country they come from plus mobile phones and spending money. I am not against people seeking asylum from countries such as Afghanistan as I have stated previously. However 90% of the people you see coming over from France or young men. no doubt riddled with all sorts of diseases. AND I bet they get better and quicker medical treatment than me or you If venting my anger at this is being a RACIST well O.K. I'm a RACIST. and so or 99% of the population of this country if they spoke their minds openly.

then you've got coppers and social workers saying they didn't get involved in grooming cases, sooner, because they didn't want to labeled racist.

your right sledge it really is comical , " My sections of society" WTF ??
you mean White ,British born ,straight man with a family and paid tax and NI all his working life, I buy British goods were possible , shop local, pedal rather than drive , grown own veg in season, I don't litter the streets, never been arrested and go to Church on occasions,
I was told by the Sisters who started my education in infants skool,
" be good and you will go to heaven and have a house made of chocolate"
Chocolate did't mean a lot to me then. At 5 I'd never had chocolate because its was't on the 'must get' list from the farm shop she bought from,
Sinse then I've learned those Sisters were cruel ,loved caning us and so Heaven is not on my bucket list of places to go,
So where do I fit in your " section" ??
Replied: 1st Oct 2021 at 14:26
The way I read that Tom is that you expect society to conform with and match your ideals and upbringing and yours alone
Rather a selfish and somewhat insular viewpoint. You need to get off your high horse old son!
