All these luvvies make me sick. I can't think of a single one who has actually housed a refugee.

It's a sad state of affairs where people receive applause and kudos for pledging support to something but not actually following through with their pledges. Hashtagging 'refugeeswelcome' instantly gives people the moral high ground without the need to ever lift a finger.

Oh SA it's all relevant, but you already knew that. The word you are looking for is 'personal'. No need for Latin or italics: just plain language. Oh and on reading my post it seems relevant enough. So it's your turn. No more backchat or glib remarks, what do you actually believe?

Yes the word is personal, or as the Forum rules say, "Play the ball. not the player".

I notice from other people's comments that you are gaining a reputation for making personal insults. Perhaps it's time that you stopped.

Bragg has to be the biggest hypocrite in the country (and that takes some doing). He has spent decades promoting immigration and the joys of a multi racial country. So what happens when he gets his wish and his home town is turned in a great melting pot of humanity from all over the globe - he ups sticks and moves to the whitest area in the country. Leaving behind all those who dont have his money and cant afford to move out of the dump that Barking has become.
