Slow news day?

IMO the rag that published that link is no better than the racist idiot who recorded it. They would not have published it if it had been a link to anti-black or anti-Asian racist ranting, so I am not sure why it is considered appropriate or necessary to give a platrform to such an offensive vitriolic rant when the targets are white British citizens.

Could be any of a number of pro-Brexit posters on this site, tbh.

There have been some pretty unrestrained comments about non-English UK citizens from some of them in TIO

This, which was only secondhand reporting of what was said, not giving someone a platform to spout racist vitriol.

Are you suggesting that racist insults are treated equally between different target/victim groups?

OK - I misunderstood your post. My mistake entirely.

Apologies.

I spent most of my working life outside of Scotland. Never worked in England because I cannot stand the endless racist remarks directed at us South of the Tweed !

Alex Ferguson managed to stick it out for 25 years.

So did I, but invert the racism. I was born and brought up in Scotland, and my father was a Scot, but I 'inherited' a lot more of my mother's Durban (South Africa) accent which sounds rather like middle class English to some people. You do get a bit tired of snide remarks from bigots, including high school teachers, about 'you being English' and so on. I never experienced any of this in Hong Kong or South Africa.
