A lot of us sometimes go off on a tangent occasionally, but this thread has turned very nasty. I have a request to the mods/Joe here. Please can we close this thread as it's meandering off the vertical and turning into a slagging match.

Now it has taken a new twist, it's turning into a witch hunt for guest posts from members (a lot are guilty of that if we trawl through old threads). Please close this thread and every accept eachothers apologies.

The bloody march isn't going to take place now anyway.

Jesus! I wish I could stop reading threads like this. I get drawn to them with a kind of fascinated horror, in much the same way, I suppose, as people who can't stop looking at the aftermath of a serious road accident, even though we all know we shouldn't.
And when all the protagonists are exhausted and have had enough , someone decides that they must needs have the last word, and off we go again on a never ending merry go round of claim and counter claim.
Will it never end?
I'm not part of this discussion, by the way. Just morbidly fascinated.
I need to get out more. Perhaps when the weather gets better?

"then, 'Emma B' comes in, who has walloped me on numerous occassions, in an unpleasant manner, "

Don't you come the 'innocent victim' with me Lizzie, Liz or Lisa or whatever you wish to or don't wish to be known as.

I have only ever posted to refute some of the absolutly appalling and grossly misleading inaccurate statements you have made in various posts here; but then anyone who disagrees with you is 'unpleasant' aren't they?

This Includes your allegations that all home educators were to be placed on the Child Abuse 'at risk' register and the 'fact' that anal intercourse was being taught in state schools as a form of birth control!

Total 'horlicks' as Dave would say! but then anything to back up your world view irrespective of truth!

I had made up my mind not to post to this forum again exactly because of the sort of attitudes displayed in your posts but I will not be dragged into your unpleasant 'poor little me' games in my absence!

Furthermore I have lived in England longer than you and resent you referring to it as your country all the time
It is 'ours' all those who live here and have made it what it is today not the mythical village green of some imaginary past.

Get a life Lizzie

I don't need to count the minutes between your posts Lizzie. Just the minutes between you contradicting yourself.

And I have had a word with the Vicar and frankly he objects to the fact that you have suggested his wife is some sort of tart. I told him to bow to your greater knowledge of tarts.

"Secondly, I wasn't rude to her...in fact telling her over and again how lucky she was to have such a happy education, but pointing out that many children had the exact opposite and had a terrible time at school."

No, you were sarky, rude and patronising, sneeringly implying that she led some sort of cushy, privileged life. You sneered at her "spiffing" life, you questioned her veracity about her exams and her social life, you questioned the validity of sending her to her single sex school, you implied that something must have gone wrong at her previous school for her to have moved to her current one...you were a complete bitch, basically.

"Then, after a long time,"

Of you sneering, dismissing and patronising her

"a few comments started coming in,"

Quite a lot, actually, if you look at the ones I posted earlier.

"then, 'Emma B' comes in, who has walloped me on numerous occassions, in an unpleasant manner, saying that 'Daisybell's Mum' had contacted her to get her to ring 'Daisybell' to substantiate that she was a 15 year old girl,"

Daisy was very upset that you insisted on implying that she was not a real person, but some sort of made-up identity. She asked how she could prove that she was who she said she was. I suggested maybe a Mudcat member that I was acquainted with could speak to her on the phone and substantiate the fact that she was a real person (unlike the many different fake identities you have created over the years).

"then 'Daisybell' comes on thanking everyone for praising her courage at coming into Mudcat..."

No, she thanked everyone who had been kind and supportive in the face of your nastiness and badgering. She hasn't posted again because she found the experience rather unpleasant. In other words, you bullied her off Mudcat. You, Lisa 'Liz', perpetual victim, were so bitchy to a 15 year old girl that she left. Well done.


"And then, on top of all that...it would seem that 'Daisybell's Mum' cut and pasted every single comment that was made by her pals just waiting for the right moment to put them down"

Um, no - just like you, I went and found the thread today. It's not hard. You claimed that you hadn't been unpleasant and nasty; I found the thread and simply copied all of the posts from various members who told you, in no uncertain terms, that you had.

Quite simple, really.

I just need to get this straight, having been back to the 'Home Education UK' thread, in which 'Daisybell' appeared.

First of all, she was reading Mudcat, for the music, but never contributed to any thread, other than the Home Ed. one.

Secondly, I wasn't rude to her...in fact telling her over and again how lucky she was to have such a happy education, but pointing out that many children had the exact opposite and had a terrible time at school.

Then, after a long time, a few comments started coming in, mostly from people who er....aren't too fond of me....then....and this bit I missed as I'd already left that thread..then, 'Emma B' comes in, who has walloped me on numerous occassions, in an unpleasant manner, saying that 'Daisybell's Mum' had contacted her to get her to ring 'Daisybell' to substantiate that she was a 15 year old girl, the daughter of 'Daisybell's Mum'....(are you still following this?) ;0)....and then 'Daisybell' comes on thanking everyone for praising her courage at coming into Mudcat...(all the regulars again) and she disappears...never to write on here again...

Okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk


Now some of 'Daisybell's Mum's' replies to me were removed (don't know why), but the ones that weren't were very specifically aimed at me and about me..

Yeeesh, what a palava!

And then, on top of all that...it would seem that 'Daisybell's Mum' cut and pasted every single comment that was made by her pals just waiting for the right moment to put them down, which I presume was strangely, on a thread about an Islamic Extremist March...

Cool, huh?

Dave, do give it a rest, there's a dear...or take some aspirin or something...or read a book, or make love with the vicar's wife...*anything* but sit there counting how many minutes there are between my posts!

Someone phone the vicar's wife up and get her to call round, PLEASE!

"One of the reasons you were banned from Mudcat on at least one occasion was because you kept creating alternative identities for yourself, when you were specifically told that it contravened the posting rules."


And tell me, Joan, how do you know that?   I know it has utterly incensed you, to the point of weirdness, that Joe let's me post on here, but there you go. Get over it.

And tell me this, how come you didn't respond to 'eanjay' a few posts back, after she came on here saying pretty much what I've been saying all along about this march....

Anyone would think it was only me you were out to call 'racist' when you completely disregard the opinion of others that tie in with mine...



"The BBC actually asked for other contributors to not respond to you, but to let a Mod know, every time they spotted one of your alternative identities. "

The BBC did that AFTER I had written to them to tell them that if they did not answer my emails, explaining why they were letting you and your buddies put my real name down and say appalling things about me, then I would take over their board and cause mayhem. They did not respond and so I did exactly as I told them I would. After THAT, they then asked everyone to be on the look out for me.

I also asked them, in fact...BEGGGED them to send their Special Investigations Unit round, as they had threatened to do, because I had been asking them for YEARS to investigate the witch hunt that was going on. From time to time, I repeat that invitation, publicly as well, on my Myspace page, but guess what, they have never sent anyone around. Reason? They know there is way too much evidence on their board to wriggle out of what they let happen, which broke all of their own rules...and that is why you were put on 'watch' Joan, so that you could no longer say lies about me. You should, of course, have been banned, as should Ralph Jordan.

You know all of that, every single bit as I have put it on here several times over, yet still you spin the truth to fit your own agenda.



"Just to set the record straight: I did NOT reveal your name on the BBC messageboard."

Oh really? But hell, you joined in repeating it over and over, didn't you?

As to the rest of your contemptible post, it is not even worth rising to, because the more you lie, the more I realise that there is something not quite right here. However, despite you assuming you know more about my life than I myself do, I'd like to point out that you have no idea who Sam is, or my relationship to him, or if we are still in contact. It is absolutely none of your bloody business either...

As to the 'Daisybell' fiasco....well, as I said before, seems like the weirdest set up I ever did hear about on the internet....with a friend talking to her, then you emailing Joe, laying a line of people who could all agree that 'Daisybell' was who you say.....almost as if you wanted it all to happen...and then all those people saying all those things.....when I wasn't even rude to her...

Well, well......

Get over it, Joan, for your own sake, get over it.   


And folkiedave, I see you've now called for this thread to be closed too. Well, well, well, well...........

And just think, HAD it been closed way back, when I asked, then none of this would have happened, eh?

"You have taken over Sidmouth, you've got Show of Hands eating out of your hands, you've done all sorts of things to 'have one up on me'...."

That's right,Lizzie. Despite the fact that I have been working in folk for 20 years, I have engineered my entire career just to get at you. What a glorious mix of self-aggrandisement and delusion.

"Go back and read those posts, I was not rude to 'Daisybell'."

Well, don't take my word for it - here is what other Mudcatters had to say:

"Lizzie you want everyone to respect your point of view and spurious rantings but the minute a teenager comes on you manage to sneer at them and patronise them."

"Read your attacks on a fellow Mudcatter's daughter and then tell me you don't understand why you have been hounded in what you call a witch hunt... You really should be ashamed of yourself."

"i am also with you on lizzies responses to daisybell.
it takes courage to stand up to you lot and fight your corner."

"lizzie, i find your response to the anonimity of daisy and her mum outragous and frankly worrying."

"I don't understand why a grown woman would be so resentful of a child whose only crime seems to be that she is happy and successful. Daisybell and Mom - I too salute your patience and humor. Congratulations to both of you for a job well done."

"I too am greatly exercised as to why Lizzie WILL persist in putting quotes around this young woman's name, when she has been told repeatedly that it is regarded as disagreeable and unacceptable. WHY, Lizzie? What good do you think it does you & your cause to be so persistently, ostentatiously, contrarily, & UNNECESSARILY offensive?"

"Throughout we have seen nothing but calm reasoned statements from Daisybell and her mother, against overwhelming antagonism."



One of the reasons you were banned from Mudcat on at least one occasion was because you kept creating alternative identities for yourself, when you were specifically told that it contravened the posting rules. The BBC actually asked for other contributors to not respond to you, but to let a Mod know, every time they spotted one of your alternative identities.


Just to set the record straight: I did NOT reveal your name on the BBC messageboard.

I did NOT threaten to tell your husband about your internet affair. Why would I need to? You'd already splashed it (rather seedily and messily) all over every single folk website - butwhen you split, I DID say I might buy him a drink and congratulate him on a lucky escape.

"You're right, Lisa 'Liz' - anyone can post as a Guest here. That's one of the reasons you got banned, remember? For repeatedly making up multiple identities for the purposes of provoking people and shit-stirring. You used to do it on the BBC board as well. Of course, there is fantastic irony in you getting into a high moral dudgeon and accusing a 15 year old girl, a new poster, of behaviour which you have persistently indulged in yourself."


No, it's not one of the reasons I got banned. I got banned because I wouldn't back down from the Traddies Witch Hunt.

What the hell is the matter with you, woman? WHERE did this paranoia about me come from?

I posted, and Joe knows this, under a few other names, when I was not allowed to post under my own. At no time did I try to 'disguise' my writing, nor did I *ever* use those guest names to be nasty to people, or abusive.

For fuck's sake, leave me alone. You are doing nothing but embarrassing yourself.

As for 'Daisybell'...again...this is all being blown totally out of proportion...and sorry, but it sounds like a complete set up to me. Go back and read those posts, I was not rude to 'Daisybell'. If you choose to read my words with a 'sneery' voice in your head,then they will come out sneery.

I gave Joe permission to read my PMs, he still has the permission, so he's read the ones from you, I'd presume. He also has my full permission, at all times, to read my replies.

You have turned this into some strange and weird internet game.

At no time, Joan, have I ever personally insulted your intelligence or your family, or been deeply personal, as you have to me. It was wrong of you, and your band of buddies, to reveal my name on the BBC, it went against every single one of their House Rules, what happened in their....That's why Diane was banned and you and Ralph were put into being watched at all times.

Do not come the holier than thou with me, because I have been way too insulted by you, even to the point where you threatened, here on Mudcat, to talk about Sam, to my then husband, during our divorce, when next you saw him at Sidmouth. How bloody weird is that?   I have never, ever done anything, or said anything like that to you or about you.

I suggest you see someone about this problem of yours, because it IS becoming one big problem in your life.   'Daisybell' is free to read whatever she wants, I have never stopped her, nor said anything to stop her....

Get over it, Joan, because this insatiable hatred of me is colouring your life in bad colours.

You have taken over Sidmouth, you've got Show of Hands eating out of your hands, you've done all sorts of things to 'have one up on me'....enjoy it, m'dear...but remember, as I told you in a PM, you wil never be the new 'Diane' to me, because Diane and I have always had a strange 'connection' that is fuelled by humour and a grudging respect for one another...It's why I never go beserk at her but meet her with humour, no matter what she's says....well,....apart from the occasional time of course...but Diane is a one off and can never be copied, so accept that...and move on with your life.

Better still, go and watch a Show of Hands concert...and then you might start to be a nicer person.


"What interesting heroes you have Lizzie."

Not really, Dave. Bader was a hero for many people. Of course, what you have written above there, about him, I could also write about you, when you are dead and gone....if I wanted to.

Douglas Bader had an arrogance about him, he had to, it is what got him to survive, but if you became his friend, then he was a Sweetiepie.

You will absolutely stop at nothing, will you...and again, as with Joan (Ruth) all you do is show others how obsessive you are.

May I politely suggest that perhaps the two of you book a double appointment with someone who can get you both to move on......it might work out cheaper..

I am inclined to agree about heroes.

I once met one of mine. A more unpleasant person I could not have wished to have met.

I make an exception as far as the folk world is concerned. Mostly wonderful people, musicians.

Bader is not just a hero of Lizzie's Dave, just one she happened to know personally.
He is recognised as a national hero of WW2.
All heroes have feet of clay.
His were tin.

I was not unpleasant to 'Daisybell' either, merely telling her how lucky she was

And I am not unpleasant to Lizzie - despite her obscene language directed at me. I simply point out that her posts do not stand up to examination because they are often ill-researched and that she frequently threatens to leave Mudcat but never does. (Latest example just under two months ago and already posted).

And that she contradicts herself. Record so far - twenty minutes.

"I was not unpleasant to 'Daisybell' either, merely telling her how lucky she was to attend an all girls school where she was obviously having such an incredibly 'spiffing' time...."

It was exactly that sort of sneeriness that many people recognised as the sort of bullying you often claim to be the victim of yourself, Lisa 'Liz'. Daisy explained repeatedly that she goes to a state school. But because her real life experiences did not match the nightmare picture of growing up in present-day Britain that you were trying to paint, you sneered at her, patronised her, trivialised her views and accused her of being a liar and a fake. Several people on the thread were rather shocked by your attacks and defended her against you, and said how much they enjoyed the perspective that she shared.

"Let's get this straight though, if 'Daisybell' was your daughter, then I'm surprised you got a 15 year old girl to come into Mudcat to write to someone you believe is truly racist and deeply unpleasant..."

Daisy reads Mudcat from time to time, like many young people who are involved in the folk scene - why should she not have the right to respond when she sees someone attacking her whole generation as a bunch of feral, sexually promiscuous pissheads who are being ritually abused every day by their schools? She was furious, so she decided to respond. I told Joe Offer beforehand that she would be doing so, and he gave his approval. Who the hell are you to tell her she shouldn't?


"And as far as 'Daisybell' goes, how the fook do any of us know, for certain, who we're speaking to in here.

Don't forget, anyone can post as a Guest in here, absolutely ANYONE at all, so 'Guest Daisybell' could be er...anyone."

Well, unlike 99.9% of people on Mudcat, Daisy spoke to a Mudcat member on the phone who vouched for her identity. Joe Offer also checked her IP address, so he knew she was not simply a member posting under another name. But it will serve you to ignore this, as your nasty, bullying behaviour is then - what - justified?

You're right, Lisa 'Liz' - anyone can post as a Guest here. That's one of the reasons you got banned, remember? For repeatedly making up multiple identities for the purposes of provoking people and shit-stirring. You used to do it on the BBC board as well. Of course, there is fantastic irony in you getting into a high moral dudgeon and accusing a 15 year old girl, a new poster, of behaviour which you have persistently indulged in yourself.

Sadly, Daisy found her brief sojourn at Mudcat very unpleasant, thanks to you. It's a pity: she's very involved in the folk scene. She goes to festivals, ceilidhs, she has a boyfriend who is a morris dancer - she had a lot to contribute. But I shouldn't think she'll be back any time soon.

Well said Lizzie. You have gained my respect. I think some people need to ask themselves what being British actually means to them. Some people were incredibly rude and arrogant towards you, they kept chipping away at your comments rather than admitting they were at fault. I do hope some members feel shame at this. One poster made a comment regarding Ruth over the weekend which she requested be removed, I am now inclined to agree with the comment in the light of her latest posts. Clarification from her would be nice.

Joan, the thing you truly do NOT understand is that those memories, those visions DID exist. They are not from my imagination, they are REAL!

You were not living in England at that time, so they would not be in your memory.

I have no memories or ideas of how the USA was at that time, because I didn't live there...

When will you get over this problem and stop telling me that my memories, my childhood, my teenagehood, did not exist. I did not grow up in a multicultural part of the country. That is not a crime, it's just a fact, because er...like..er...that's where I grew up.

That does not make me racist you know, nor the hundreds of thousands of other people who still live in places that are not multicultural.

You live in an English village yourself, so how the fook can you tell me that chocolate box England doesn't exist, even to this day?

And as far as 'Daisybell' goes, how the fook do any of us know, for certain, who we're speaking to in here.

Let's get this straight though, if 'Daisybell' was your daughter, then I'm surprised you got a 15 year old girl to come into Mudcat to write to someone you believe is truly racist and deeply unpleasant...
I really did not believe that even you would stoop that low to get at me, but perhaps you did, who knows?

Don't forget, anyone can post as a Guest in here, absolutely ANYONE at all, so 'Guest Daisybell' could be er...anyone.

Yeesh! But hey, don't let it stop your campaign, eh....and...I was not unpleasant to 'Daisybell' either, merely telling her how lucky she was to attend an all girls school where she was obviously having such an incredibly 'spiffing' time....

And yes, I did care for Douglas Bader, who DID fly Spitfires, and no, he was NOT a part of my imaginative chocolate box racist memory, but a real person, who would run circles round you and your ilk for daring to tell him what his country was, or is, were he still alive.
And Sir Douglas is part of this nation's proud history...because there are few alive as brave as he was...An amazing man, from an amazing country.

So, put that in your Spiteful Pipe and smoke it, kid...and get off my back...

As I said, go over to your FAF page and start dealing with the 400,000 people who'd you'd deem racists for saying that they wanted that bloody march stopped.

"Therein lies the rub, Bessy. You could afford a car. We couldn't. We didn't even have TV until I was 10 in 1963. When I first married we had no TV either, or telephone. While you can look at your past with the rose coloured glasses of privelege the vast majority of us look back at the reality."

Oh, come on, Dave, get real. My Dad never owned his house, throughout his entire life. When he died he didn't have enough to bury himself...and his children helped to pay his bills, towards the end of his life. We lived in a rented house, the same one from when I was 6 months to age 27, when I got married..it was an ordinary, small semi, nowt special at all....and we never had holidays abroad, or fancy this or that...hand me downs from my brother were often my clothes...

Yes, Dad had a car, but not until I was about 10 years old, so that'd be 1965...

Privilege?

Ha!   Every month he worried about paying the bills, all his life long...but he loved his ocuntry, loved the countryside, and in those days it was dirt cheap to run a car, as well you know...so it didn't cost much to go out, nor to have a drink and a sandwich once a week...



"Don't get me wrong - I loved my childhood and upbringing. Even if it was amidst the dark satanic mills of t'north. It was a wonderful time, amongst ture friends, many of whom remain the same today. It was a past of discovery and getting the most out of every last experience. It also taught me the true value of England. Not that of the Village Green Preservation Society (Good song btw - Better by the Kinks than Ms Rusby in my opinion). The England, and note I do use England rather than Britain, that accepts and welcomes all peoples, races and, above all, allows changes to accomodate everyone."

Exactly. But sometimes, changes come which aren't always for the better...and that's when the rose coloured glasses really are put on, by those who refuse to see with clear vision....

Try to make out I'm Mrs. Middle England, if you so choose, as others have done, but sadly, for them, I grew up in the wrong part of Pinner, not on Pinner Hill where the private roads and huge houses were, but down the bottom, where ordinary people struggled. Nowadays, of course, those houses go for crazy amounts, but my happiest memories were helping Dad in the garden, playing in the trees, picking the fruit from them..simple, free pleasures....

So yes, chocolate box England was all around and it still is, even oop north....and there's nowt wrong with admitting that..

It's like we've all been sprayed with Dozy Lotion, where none of us are allowed to remember England as she was, let alone talk about it...

Well, I was inside the day they crop sprayed my island to make people forget how it was...and I have never believed in NOT looking back, nor taking the best from the past into the future either...

I don't give a fuck that my country is now of many colours, because that has brought it's own enrichment...but I can't stand tribal hatreds, be they from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, or from White skinned Skinheads or Mods and Rockers...

I love this land, with every breath in my body and I will never, EVER give in to those who tell me that I can't be proud to be English, to be British, or that I am from a truly amazing country that has a history the rest of the world envies, even if some of them try to rub out that history and leave us only with the bad parts....We are a great country, and anyone who tries to undo that greatness......can shove off...

Wow...what a load of self-regarding, posturing old bollocks.

Just to be clear: nothing gets "thrown at you in the name of Folk Against Fascism" (note spelling). I, as an individual, representing no cause or voice but my own, have debated certain points with you and demonstrated that your arguments are factually incorrect and intellectually bereft. At which point you started throwing tantrums. So, all is as normal in Lisa 'Liz' World.

Lisa 'Liz' said: "Joan took umbridge at me for saying that I recalled cricket matches being played on village greens, whilst the church bells rang out in the background"

What I actually said, after a long, misty-eyed bout of whimsy about spitfires and cricket and church bells and village greens, was (and this was a thought that has since been echoed by many of your countrymen) the England you were trying to conjure up was a sentimental image that ony existed on biscuit tins and Hovis adverts, and it did not take into account the real, multicultural society that we live in. You responded (and this is the important bit) that I would have to have "England running through every part of me" to be able truly understand your vision. The implication being that, as I was not born here, I could never properly understand or appreciate England in the way that you could.

It was THIS statement that I told you was racist. It implies that people who were not born in England don't have a right to its heritage in the same way that people "with England running through every part of them" do. Would that be a matter of birth or of blood, by the way? It says that only native-born English people can understand and appreciate England properly.

You have since twisted this into the statement "I was told that to love the sight of cricket being played on village greens was to dream of an English idyll that no longer exists and therefore, it showed that I was racist."

Which was not what was ever said to you. And moreover, I think you know that. Aren't you bored of these arguments by now? Picking over statements that were made several years ago, pulling them out of context, and still trying to use them in sad little games of point-scoring? Because god knows I am.

"A 15 year old girl posted on Mudcat to counter some of your more hysterical claims about "the youth of today" by talking about the experiences of herself and her friends. You insisted on putting quote marks around her name to imply that you didn't believe that she was who she said she was, even though she asked you repeatedly to stop doing it (and she was quite upset by it, because she put a lot of consideration into her very well-articulated posts)."

Ah, 'Daisybell' you meam...

Strange, but 'Daisybell' sounded awfully like someone not too far away from those words above...which is why I kept the name in '''s.

Chocolate box images, Dave?

Why yes, there were...and still are thousands of them in this beautiful country.

Joan took umbridge at me for saying that I recalled cricket matches being played on village greens, whilst the church bells rang out in the background. There were many village greens where I lived, many that I visited, as Dad would always take us out for a drive every Sunday afternoon, and we'd stop off at a pub somewhere, that allowed children in, have a sandwich and a glass of orange squash...

My Dad adored this country, and it was his dream to one day be able to travel through every village and town in it. He fought for it, his friends died for it....but the Britain of today, in some parts, would be unrecognizable to him, because of the filth, the graffiti, the simmering tensions, the poverty and the total lack of care of our surroundings that so many now seem to have. The out of town towns, the vast amount of cars, traffic etc...the stress in so many places...

Show of Hands, of course, have written many songs about what's happening here, as I'm sure you all know, being their new fans.

The Miner's Strike filled me with horror, as the hatred it unleashed has never gone away, and whilst I understand the horrors it caused to those communities, time has to move on, hatreds have to be laid to rest, but they never were, were they?...Class War, the Extreme Left, the division, those who've fought so hard TO divide...and the hatred now thrown at Middle England, whoever they may be.....

My country has been deliberately dumbed down and divided...and it has been almost taken over by a brigade of bullying types who shout you down if you dare to shout out that many things are wrong, as can be seen in here...Mob Rule now replaces conversation...and some people are subjected to highly irrational lambasting, purely for having the guts to come out from the crowd and tell The Emperor that he has n clothes on.

Once he wore clothes made from Honour, Truth and Integrity, which shone in the midday sun, reflecting the warm and contented people of his land...

But now his clothes are dull, being made from Arrogance, Ignorance and Greed, and the only reflection they give off is the Emperor's face, for he sees no-one but himself, no longer cares about his country or her people...

And if anyone dares to stand out from the crowd and call out to him, they are immediately set upon by his henchmen, who drown out their voice with cries of "You RACIST Bastard!"

Luckily, I still have clothes made from Honour, Truth and Integrity, which protect me from all the viciousness that gets thrown at me, in the name of Folk Against Facism...
