Subject: RE: BS: Whither now England?
It has to said Stu, there are times when I am shaking my head.

Of course, most normal people in England are warm, inviting, non judgemental and kind. We are a very multicultural society and embrace diversity. T'was ever thus.

The snag is, it is the boorish ignorant peasants who shout loudest and are an embarrassment. The simple superstitious ones who think bigotry is respectable and the disgraceful ones who try to show our dubious past in a revisionist light.

But you know what? Fuck 'em. They are the sad minority, up their own arse and think people agree with them when in fact their popularity is due to the celebrity fascination of the self serving media. We even get them on here for crying out loud. Winding themselves up like they were Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse as The Self Righteous Brothers.

Mind you, there is hope at the end of the tunnel. One on here claimed to support UKIP once and has been wriggling out of his claim ever since.

No, I'm not quite as sceptical on these matters. A wake up Euro election will frighten people into not letting loony twats get in next year where it matters, in the real election. Despite the urge to give Cameron a bloody nose, I hope most Scottish people won't vote for another Darian venture for that matter.

The snag is, everybody has to be somewhere. We live amongst bigots, angels, sports teachers and idiots. Their vote is as valid as the next and as in all matters, the vast majority of people are too intelligent to fall for ideology. That's why we have a coalition. Nobody fell for dogma last time.

Politicians from soap boxes are like vicars from pulpits. They pontificate and get all judgemental but intelligent people smile and look the other way.
