Getting all uppity about St George's day is often (not always!) about being a secret racist. You know:

How dare we not be able to worship St George in our own country, when all them foreigners get to worship Lord Samosa or whatever weird thing they like!

Typically, no-one has even stopped them from worshipping St George. They just read about one case in The Sun and cry persecution. Like yeah, the British people are sooooo hard done by.

Usually interchangeable with stuff like:

My local university was stopped from using the term "black coffee"! It's PC gone mad! Even though this never actually happened anywhere and it just feeds into my fears of all non-white people taking over.

Yeah, we're the BNP. But now we're different. You know, a bit like calling ourselves the Nazi party only we're different.

I'm not a racist, but....

Look at all them foreigners, coming here, stealing our jobs. Even though there's a reason they get jobs cleaning toilets for 50p an hour- because I won't.
Hello my darling it's me again. Where are you?

God. THE SUN. My grandad buys it and it's the most awful hate-infested bile-rag I've ever had the misfortune to read.

I once read something along the lines of "POLISH IMMIGRANTS DRAINING NHS RESOURCES," which is typical. Who needs one scaremongering when you do a double? Seemed like a bit of an obvious attempt to cover up the main issues in both the immigration and NHS debate. Yeah, because a polish immigrant having a hip op is to blame for the serious flaws in NHS infrastructure :roll: Like you say, one small PC-madness incident is taken out of it's context, blown out of proportion and declared the standard way things work in "Broken Britain."

And you know what word I hate? "Britishness." Tea was imported from China, we were invaded by and traded several different peoples and cultures over thousands of years so any staunch "pure blood britishness" is actually the result of millenia of multi-culturalism.

oh god I'm going to shut up because I could rant about this for AGES.

I had some guy (with an afro, which is considered exotic where I live) trying to sign me up to a Daily Mail subscription this very eve. He was standing at my doorstep (with obgligatory clipboard) when I pulled up on the drive. I told him I don't buy papers (troof) and that I only occasionally glance at local rag.

I actually said (rather loudly) as he left, "Save the Planet!"

He said 'I like that'.

Eh?

made me 'eh?':

Woman driving down a road, on phone with one hand and applying lipstick with the other. HAD NO HANDS ON THE WHEEL.

Seriously, what the hell? No wonder women drivers get so much stick.

Nah- personally I think women drivers get so much stick because of misogynistic society. I mean, not that the women you're talking about didn't deserve some stick. But generally, there must be a reason that women get better cheaper car insurance.

Because largely they're safer, saner and dare I say it, better drivers. Nearly every single person who cuts Ethel up at roundabouts and tries to ram their way into traffic queues and overtakes on dangerous turns at 100 miles an hour- male. The mistakes I see women making are rarely of the life threatening or car crashing variety- usually it's going a bit slow, being a bit timid, etc. And with so much bad attitude aimed at them from male drivers, and so much of the road and driving being dedicated to now, faster, harder, MORE! I'm not surprised.

I remember reading, once, about a man- a transexual. And after he became a women he noticed, in particular, how much his driving attitude and the way he drove changed. Not because women drive differently, but because of the attitudes constantly aimed at him* on the road.


*I wouldn't usually use him, here. But it just looks weird otherwise.

Dear God in Himmel! It's the vindaloo man from Red Dwarf! It's that thing from the end of Alien 4! Be honest: you would not be surprised if one of them slooped out of the big space eggs from Aliens, would you. And what is that extra bit? WHAT? A bit of fried skin flap?

I once wrote a 90 page zombie rip-off of everything, in which it was postulated that the outbreak came from ground up brains in cinema hotdogs. Until this day, I honestly thought my character was joking.

Now I just think we're all going to be eaten by each other because of chicken in a can.
I will never recover from seeing these pictures. They will haunt my dreams.

A question to an expert on swine flu on the radio, from a deadly serious (or a good actress) old lady:

"Will sacrificing pigs stop the epidemic?"

*facepalm*
