Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

^^ Which makes him a fruitcake in my view. Plenty of madmen show similar traits. Greed for power over others and personal financial avarice. He is missing a quinissential point about human existence. His moral hypocrisy alone is enough to make one cringe. Have you not noticed!? The world is owned a...

Re: Simple Question: Is anyone else fed up with having to be PC ?

There is a fundamental difference between using terms such as white or black. White people do not suffer racial prejudice . They are not exploited or demeaned because of colour. Demeaning has been the lot of black people for millennia. Really? They may not in a country or area that's predominately ...

Re: Simple Question: Is anyone else fed up with having to be PC ?

I for one am really pleased that it is less acceptable nowadays for my youngest daughter to be called a pikey on the school bus than in my elder daughter's day. Get over it; using offensive language can really hurt some people. It is bullying. If you hadn't realised before that it's offensive, then...

Re: Simple Question: Is anyone else fed up with having to be PC ?

Hi all, It was Reohn who capitalized the word as "GAY" (Good As You), but left it as Gay, meaning Happy. So no slight itended to anyone, but it does show that it is a fine line between okay & iffy or even offensive...... No it doesn't,context is everything when used in the spoken word...

The word Gay is certainly not to be confused with GAY. But I note that the poster who pointed that out then went and fell into the trap himself! Oops.

As that poster I'll need explaining to me as to what trap I've fallen into, if you could be so kind.

Re: Simple Question: Is anyone else fed up with having to be PC ?

These days in Britain one has to be PC otherwise the Plod / Moderators / Religious Plod etc will step in. In America everyone is free to say what they want, so we are considerably less free than them. Oh pleeze :? I dislike the effects of PC and agree with Rowan Atkinson that its had a bad effect o...

Re: Simple Question: Is anyone else fed up with having to be PC ?

.......I think a reality check is needed. TTFN MM Dictionary definition:- PC= "the avoidance of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against". Blackboard I'd say is self evident...

Re: BMW driver walks free from court after deliberately running over cyclist

..... . Does it make any difference if an aggressor uses a posh car or a banger as a weapon? Absolutely not - but my observation is that is seems to matter on this Forum to an unusual degree. I agree it shouldn't but my experiences tell me there are certain marques of car that seem to attract a hig...

Re: BMW driver walks free from court after deliberately running over cyclist

Elsewhere on these pages it's always Audi drivers. Prejudice and sweeping statements are without logic . The newspaper article was wrong in mentioning the brand sin the first instance. Just like when a person caught up some criminal act is referred to as "..the blonde mother of three..." ...

Re: Britain's 'angriest town.'

Do the people of Tavistock have a say in every new business that comes to town.... They have an LA who have to go through a process of asking the residents if they think there's any objections to the building of a new business,the residents can then object or not,if there's enough valid objections ...
