    Question What's a Bob (agent/resource)?

    Reading a few posts, I gather imported staff are sometimes referred to as "Bobs" and that Indian agents/agencies/outsources are also occasionally referred to as Bobs.. So, what's a Bob (as it seems, multiple people/things can be one...) ?

    Cheers..

    Bob is a racist CUK term for Indian. A bit like Dago (as in Diego) for Spanish speaking people.

    Yes it's a racist term. Just like jock is for a Scottish person.

    Rasism, you get used to it.
    London : 'we're holding a referendum to leave the Eureopean union
    EU: 'OK'
    Scotland: 'we're holding a referendum to leave the UK union'
    London: ' Oh no you're not'.

    Still Bobs are more like lords or dukes compared to eastern europeans or russians. I think it is because those have never been conquered.

    It is a term that was of its time.

    Its use is no longer encouraged and I remove it and replace with the nationality of the person it refers to.

    Unless it refers specifically to Mr Shawadiwadi.
