oh yes thats right ,they wouldn't get the free hand outs from the tax payers if they went home.!!!!!!!!!!!
no need to preach to anyone in the uk about P.C.
seems like all the personalities of this site are getting their 2 cents worth in herewhere does tax come into this discussion??? As I understand we`re all here to avoid it and I think you meant free`speech`....which incidentally Im all for, `mate`!!! Now chill!! Oh yes and I totally agree with the free handouts comment....not that it was relevent to my post at all! PC is one thing and yes it can be overdone but bigotry and racism are inexcusable in my opinion. Thats neither `banter` nor `humour`!

lebanese are cuties? hahahhahaha..you really haven't been out of the UK before have you? anyway, your indignation at Tockalosh was a classic moment on the bored. mr biggs even joined in to pour some petrol on the fire by implying he is the Grand Imperial Wizard and you swallowed hook, bait, sinker and about 15 meters of line..

clocking up airmiles doesn't mean you actually understand what happens in the real world. i'm sure your mummy and daddy (how old are you?) kept you well and truly protected from the ugly things that happen 'out there'.

your ignorance has given me a laugh anyway, and i am very happy i'm not you. bahrain is not a good place to be moving to at the moment which most of the comments on the bored make quite clear. bye now!

[by the way just because the forum lets you add smilies doesn't mean you need to put one of each in every post]

Think you're heading for a very steep learning curve. I can see it ending in tears.

'Nasty Norsk' eh? If you care to have a look at his 1200+ postings, you will see that he has given a great deal of helpful, generous responses, given freely, albeit with cheerfully warped humour.

And you?

We're the nasty bastards who break little children's toys. Who do you think we are?

Or could it be that we are the ones who get on with it without making waves, and generally survive by taking advice from those who went before us?

Don't be so prickly. You get more bees with honey than vinegar.

i was nasty to you? okay fair enough i called you ignorant, but you haven't exactly given me proof that you are anything but...and nobody is bullying you. you have to realise that we get plenty of newbies with massive blinders on coming on the forum asking the most ridiculous questions. you'd know this if you'd bothered to read some old posts. there are in fact loads of people who will share really good information on this forum, but if you act like a twat expect to be answered in the same way...it's just how we are...

Pardon me but if anyone who was objective would see clearly,its you coming across as a totally foolish `twat`at the moment....and all this pulling rank is pathetic!!!! Oh and if you read back I havent asked ANY `ridiculous questions` so dunno what you`re on about there. I understand how sharing info at times like this can be helpful which is why I came on BE in the first place! What I fail to understand is how you some of you guys seem to get your kicks from being personal and rude....not to mention certain comments that were definitely racist! Now why dont YOU just be nice!
