    Syria

    Given the recent allegations of the Syrian dictatorship using chemical weapons against its own citizens, what do people think about the UK becoming involved in military action against Bashar al Assad's regime. Should we, or should we not? I'm no fan of George Galloway, but he certainly got his point over during the recent Parliamentary debate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgxzpQrqSkg (p.s. lovin the new shetlink!)

  2. My wife had a 'black' baby doll when she was a young girl. This was in a completely white working class Yorkshire town in the 1960's, she's still got that doll now and it is sat in our spare room as I type this. Some other kids had gollywogs, no-one saw them as being a parody of a black person and no-one bothered to comment on the fact that a white girl had a 'black' baby dolly. No-one cared. Remember that this was in the allegedly 'bad old days' when fowk weren't 'enlightened' regarding race issues..... Fast forward to 'caring' touchy-feely piltocks trying to label anyone who doesn't toe a sterile line as a racist. We've really moved forward, haven't we? Give yourselves a pat on the back, you wonderful champions of racial equality. My bowels are moved by your incredible worthiness.

  3. Having taken te time to read the man's blog, I to am deeply saddened and shocked as well but only because so many people seem to think that a doll can be an indication of racism. For goodness sake, a doll is a doll, is a doll..... When I was a kid, I used to collect the paper golliwogs from Robertson's jam jars and, shock horror, exchange them for the enameled badges that were on offer. Nothing 'racist' about it, I just collected the badges. It never 'encouraged' me to think that black, yellow, green, blue or any other colour of skin was an indication that the persons within were, somehow, different or inferior to me and to this day, I do not care what colour, race or creed anyone is. It just isn't important so, why do so many people get upset over it. In my opinion, if you accuse someone of being a racist then, you to must be a racist. Think about it.. Maybe I'm just not 'PC' enough and need to be 'educated' into thinking like a lemming.
