Hmm.. I didn't mean that word as racial, just as a abbreviation of some kind. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Somebody obviously doesn't keep up with the Royal Family, one of whose younger members was heavily criticised for using the P-word in jest.

Sweat of the driver and a million passengers is probably the main cause

Personally, I think the airfreshener scent will just lie on top of the stale sweat smell so you get a disgusting mix of floral scent and stale sweat - yuck! But maybe it's better than nothing?

No - because he made an apparently genuine and heartfelt apology - which his dance partner graciously accepted. Last night they won through to the next round.

no idea...but have to say that in 5 years time I've only had a few times when I didn't dare to breath through my nose...
not keen on those airfreshner things though, would be like riding in a toilet...

yes I saw the show, I can't stand that Anton though I was rather hoping he would have been seriously binned.

I find the whole P*ki thing a bit odd:

Aussie
Kiwi
Pom
Paki
Seppo

Not sure what the panic is?? These terms have been around for years, whats the dif. between them?
