    Well we are cracking down on bigots, racism and sexism, that's true enough.

    Plenty of that, but liars or people who spread lies are getting called out these days, which makes a change from them just being able to make up/believe stuff and claim it to be true without checking.

    The right-wing PC myth is amusing. They complain that they're denied the free speech to say what they like about other races (for example), and then complain of political correctness when others use their free speech to call them racists.

    they're (we're) all getting old

    and basically, we've discussed everything to death and everyone's knackered

    on top of that as we discussed last week in another thread there are basically two camps these days on CUK,

    there's the expats who are happy as larry and living the dream and the rest who are stuck in blighty and depressed

    As a racist I deeply object to being singled out by this unelected authority!
    Ldoenn : 'we're hloding a referneudm to laeve the Eureopean union
    EU: 'OK'
    Scotland: 'we're holding a refeerndum to leave the UK union'
    Ldonon: ' Oh no you're not'.

    on my summer holiday, on the beach, I read my first Terry Pratchett book, recommended by a friend, "Guards, Guards!".

    I gotta say, CUK could actually be one of the "guilds" in a Terry Pratchett book

    surreal isn't it

    bigots, racism, and sexism are not defined very well by the middle class bbc view of the world
