Hot bed for Racism

When i was visiting for a whiled in 2007 things were great during the day. Come evening time and it was a very much different story.

I was called many names even though my parents are mixed.

Sad this place hasn't changed its ways

Thats Scotland for you. They really don't like the English.

Wake up! Bingham is in Nottinghamshire.

There is also a Bingham in Edinburgh.

Chronus "There is also a Bingham in Edinburgh"

The clue would appear to be in line five of the linked report

"...moved out of their home in Bingham, Nottinghamshire"

-hardly confusing, is it?

As an Englishman who has lived in Scotland for the past 33 years.

I can report that among White Collar Workers I have experienced no Racism and among Blue Collar Workers, I have experienced only very occasional Racist remarks, and from the female of the species, never a hint.

However among the drunken louts that I take home from the Pubs and Clubs, frequently supporters of one or other of the two major Glaswegian Football Clubs, I experience regular, and frequently hurtful, Racist comments.

These boys appear to be only marginally literate and have very few of the social graces usually exhibited elsewhere in society, I cannot imagine them being employed in any position that involved contact with the General Public.

I am only glad that I am not Colored or of any other visible racial stereotype. They must have a really hard time of it.

wee eddie, said - However among the drunken louts that I take home from the Pubs and Clubs, frequently supporters of one or other of the two major Glaswegian Football Clubs, I experience regular, and frequently hurtful, Racist comments.

As a Glaswegian, I can honestly say there is a truth in what wee eddie says, but the demotion of the famous Glasgow Rangers has reduced / diffused the biototry and 'bad-mouthing' that nobody wants.

Aitchbee: In many of the villages round here, the Union Jack still flies and the rhetoric hasn't changed one iota

biototry should be bigotry .... keyboard is laggy ;o{
