Since I have been posting on RR I have until late kept well clear of politics religion and current naval affairs/strategies of which I know very little and care even less. But,....I have noticed a rather unrealistic trend towards tolerance, but always directed towards Political Correctness. That is the problem. I live in the real world, where opinions are expressed across the board, and either I am living in the centre of the British Nazi Parties homeland or else the views expresses until of late on RR are very one sided. I heard or rather read the accusations or suggestions (please yourselves) that frogman was a racist for making a few remarks that were in my mind timid compared with those so often expressed openly in most places I have travelled. For instance, at the moment everyone and his brother are making remarks about the Pope the RC church and the sexual preferences of its staff, with the associated jokes. Where's the outrage bus? in for a service. I'm a left footer, I ain't bothered I have been insulted by experts to no avail and unable to answer.(Try RN DQ's staff their polite folk). I recon if it were a thread trashing Muslims to that degree the bus would be parked outside at full revs. Why is it trendy to support the Muslims. If you insult one it's racism. Wrong its not unless they suddenly have a diversified from creed/religion into a nationality. Mention cutting aid and straight away you are the voice of evil and obviously a fascist or paid up member of the National Front. Why is it such a crime to be concerned for whats happening in this country to us as opposed to worrying about the rest of the world? If I get reminded once more about what the British did in years gone by I will puke. Who cares, it wasn't me and as far as I know we never had a slave in our family, more likely the other way around. So Cameron went to see where the British shot a load of Indians,...who cares, go look at the Black hole of Calcutta they did us. One of the biggest ner' do wells in the midlands is related to me by marriage, and has caused a lot of grief to a lot of people. I'm supposed to do what? Apologise on his behalf? Fuckin forget it wasn't me I am a nice guy and help people who need it when I can. I have lived in this country a great deal of my life and whilst not being English would not think too badly of anyone suggesting I am, kinda flattered really. Anyone not liking it can do what I do live in another place, and those that do not reside here have no valid input into how we should feel seeing our future diluted by a politico with no agenda other than staying in power with the big bucks whilst the rest of us are expected to share the little we have with anybody that comes just because we have a little more than them. I know lots of poor British people I have some as friends. Not scroungers but people who through many varied circumstances are not doing too well and they are in fact to the majority employed. So in conclusion I am neither a racist, an intolerant towards religion bugger (whatever their called) and I have no ideas of my supremacy over anyone. I just want to not be dragged into poverty by too many on the friggin life-raft.
