Should we get a room?
Seriously though, I did read an earlier post of yours concerning cyclists and although I am not enamoured of their misbehaviour on the roads and pavements, I do not advocate the death penalty - merely that they be dealt with accordingly.

Ron.

Best not let Albitz be the judge. He is rather fond of hanging people. ;D

Wasn't that French spies?  ;D


His 'to do list' of people to be hanged come the glorious day is extensive. ;D

I have no doubt that I am on there somewhere :D

I think his plan is to start with EU officials and then work his way through the whole of France. ;)

It's really quite a simple task, put your brain into gear before engaging your mouth but obviously this task is beyond some people.


That's especially important when you earn a living by engaging your mouth. His comment and subsequent reactions were crass, ill-judged, inappropriate and didn't manage to be entertaining either. That is why his employers should discipline him. How they do that is their decision.

Quite the reverse. You willingly signed on the dotted line to serve/ defend / protect the country. Your one of the few groups of people I would happily spend tax payers money on if and when needed.  ;)

Ive now had a bit of time to look into this story a bit and I find his sacking fickin hilarious.
He is indeed a right on lefty liberal, fully signed up to the whole PC agenda. I believe he is so dismissive of the Royals that he was vaguely aware one of them had a kid,and so decided to allude to how he thinks they are a bunch of upper class privileged twits, by using the chimp pic. Apparently he has a thing for using chimp pics to paint people in this light.
He has been hung by his own PC petard, and he cant even complain about it as that would be un PC.
Brilliant.  ;D ;D

Some people are offended by almost everything. Think generation snowflake.
This is indeed the problem.

I'm offended by do-gooders. Can they all be sacked?

The guy is a Dick, always been Dick, Ive met Him a few times and had a few Beers with Him when he was on the LWT 6 O'clock show back in the 80s,

He's one of those who are all very good at a laugh and a joke and dishing it out but He certainly cant take it when His on the receiving end.

The other side to this is, maybe he had no idea she, and her child are mixed race? I mean, I didn't until I read about the story today.

Or is this one of those "I've never seen star wars" moments where I find out I'm totally on my own on this?!

Does being Canadian count as a race? Or is this just another Millennial thing  ???

If you actively play in the spotlight of the court of public opinion then there are boundaries it is sensible not to cross. There are plenty of ways he could have done this & a few very stupids ways, one of which he used. :-[ No sympathy here, that he has fallen on his self inflicted sword.

One sensible rule is that none of us choose our genetic physical characteristics or ethnicity, they are bequeathed by our family lines & are generally a very poor way to score political points. Another is that we mostly are incharge of our actions through our minds, interface to the world & the use of uncommon sense, which may result in making good or bad decisions & these are quite rightly open to possible praise, ridicule & criticism.

Where I have over 500 followers on Twitter & do discuss controversial subjects like quality of UK politicians, Brexit & climate fraud, it doesn't get me into trouble where I follow the above self-imposed rules. :y
