good to see the police spending there time on important issues
It's just typical of Britain today: some petty jobsworth idiot does something stupid and then the media hype it up to make people angry.
Anyway - Scots and English are the same race ...... but different nationalities.
If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
i suppose buying a scotland shirt for the world cup would be a waste of money so they may as well get one of these
Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .
What a load of nonsense. If someone wants to make a stupid t-shirt backing against England then so be it. It's just what the Scots do. I have a Scotish friend who always backs against England, but that's just part and parcel of who he is. Why would you get irate about it? Nobody is getting hurt and it's just a sport at the end of the day. The police have no business getting involved in the first place, they would be much better suited trying to catch the hordes of drug dealers.
There is too much political correctness in the UK from what I read in the media and it seems you can't even make a tongue in cheek joke anymore without people getting up in arms and calling you sexist, racist or whatever the latest -ist word is this week. It's all a bit sad really.
The UK seems to have turned a bit strange really having become a rather tedious and pointless nanny state where you cannot speak in fear of upsetting other people. Maybe that's an exaggeration, I don't know. I will be going home for a holiday in the summer, so I will be able to see for myself how bad it's become. Surely, it's just the media that makes it seem so ridiculous.
Absoloutely cringeworthy story
The scots dont like the english - someone in inner mongolia would be able to tell you that.
We are there as per usual and as per usual they arent. Thats more than enough satisfaction for me
one dangerous horrible bloke
I only heard the expression "a person of colour" quite recently on TV and thought it quite bizarre. What's wrong with calling a dark skinned person "black"? Maybe I'm old fashioned, but a spade is a spade. Language is an odd thing and I just don't see the point in getting so worked up about it. Some words will insult, but it's down to the individual to decide how they express themselves. You can't be dictated from above on how to use language. If a man wants to wear a T-Shirt with "Bugger the Queen" on the front, I really don't see the problem. It could say "Bugger miles" and I would still say fair enough. Not that I want to be buggered mind.

yeah all seems a bit pathetic to me!
For example Hatton the Hammer might believe that Bernard Manning telling a joke about a black man is ok because it's funny and harmless, wheras somebody else might take offence to it.
Choosing to take offence over something and being offended are two different things, and claiming to be offended when in effect you aren't, isn't right. But it's also not right to decide that something isn't offensive, just because you don't find it to be so.
