    R.I.P. Pyro

    RIP Apostolis. I regret I never met him in real life but I remember him well on OCUK. He was always one of my favourite posters and seemed a genuinely open and friendly individual. His contributions in Speakers' Corner were always worth reading and his opinons on any number of topics were...

    Tintin in the Congo

    I don't know really, but I suppose it's up to the retailer. It's the risk of it becoming a prevailing attitude that worries me, or when the relevant pressure groups garner some support from the Government or other authorities.

    Tintin in the Congo

    I wonder what pressure the publishers were subjected to and by whom though. I also wonder how the "request" was worded. It wouldn't be the first time the media has leapt onto an otherwise innocuous event and blown it out of all proportion I guess ;) Personally, I never liked Tintin but I...

    Tintin in the Congo

    The problem with this whole Tintin debacle is what it might lead to. I read older books myself, and it's quite common for some authors from the 19th and even the 20th century to use terms, expressions, descriptions and assumptions that might raise some eyebrows. What are we to do? Should all...

    Tintin in the Congo

    :eek: You don't *read* things like this, you keep it in its original wrapping and put it on a shelf somewhere dark and dry! I predict that it may well increase in value ;)

    What deodorant & aftershave do you use?

    I just use what the wife buys - it's usually "Sure" cool blue or linen white which are for women apparently. They don't seem to stain clothes which is my main concern as I don't sweat very much at all (I use proper old-fashioned carbolic soap). My after-shave is usually pure witch hazel or...

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    So, even though he (and I) are both hard-working, decent human beings, none of that matters because we're non-white. Is that what you're saying? You are not happy that we're here in the UK. So tell me, where would you have us "returned" to? With reference to DD, "missed" is simply a...

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    dirtydog, I asked you a question a few pages ago that I believe you might have missed. I'll repeat it for you now:

    Actually, I believe he was quoting Bernard Manning but that's not to say Mr Manning said it first of course.

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    Well if you say you spent the entire time laughing, let me remind you of its contents: "PC 2322 Rob Pulling was one of the police cadets whose racism the Secret Policeman exposed. PC Pulling believes Hitler had the “right idea”. Had he been successful, his plan to rid Germany of Jews could...

    Could you tell me exactly what you found funny?

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    An ignorant and inappropriate analogy as originally voiced by a certain PC Rob Pulling; we're all the same species :rolleyes: Let's reword it (again): If a horse is born in a different part of a stable to another horse, is it not still a horse?

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    That's the awful truth of it I'm afraid. White nationalists exhibit a certain duality in their argument, that while they condemn Muslims and Asians for creating their own enclaves and refusing to integrate into Western society, they also abhor the idea of integration. Certainly, they wouldn't...

    I hope you're not abusing our goodwill simply to improve your chances with this woman... :p

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    You just need to look like one, right? Wasn't it you who said that after a generation or so, any white immigrant would be able to legitimately call themselves British, but that one drop of non-white blood would effectively preclude them or their descendants from doing likewise?

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    That's a completely inappropriate analogy. We're not talking about a different species, we're talking about nationality, *not* species. It's nothing like a dog being born in a barn at all, it's a horse being born in a different corner of the barn.

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    I'd like you to go further, I'd like to hear you admit that you're happy someone like @if is here in the UK because he sounds like a decent, intelligent human being and this country benefits from his being here. Is that something you'd be happy to say? What about me? I'm non-white I know, but I...

    We don't feel British, say Asians

    I would say such a thing because I think delimiting immigrants by their nationality, skin colour or culture, is inappropriate and irrelevent. I don't care whether or not an Asian feels 100% British with regards to immigration anymore. My disagreement with the idea of immigration is based solely...
