..that 'someone you know' is a genuine, swivel eyed loon.
I'd ignored the 'I'd vote for Boris' & 'UKIP are right' nonsense spouted on the last couple of visits.
But tonight, I was reliably informed that a certain Northern ex-mill town, which has had a perfectly integrated British Asian community since the 1950's, is experiencing a drop in property values because of, and I quote, 'the Muslims'.
Who are 'taking over'.
I tried pointing out that:
1. Property prices in said town have risen steadily for a number of years.
2. There has never, ever, been any kind of religious conflict in said mill town.
Not even during the reformation, when it was just a dungheap by a river.
3. The proportion of Asian families in said town has remained constant for the past thirty years.
4. Britain is a country built on immigration & we're a completely raciallly mixed nation.
All the usual arguments applied against small minded ignorant racists basically.
Time to cut loose I think.
Shame, her kids are nice and she always brings cake, but I just can't put up with that level of ignorant stupidity in my house or my life.
