    “Sweeping Generalisation”

    So you are suggesting that there is an element of truth in it then ?

    Fair enough.

    Could it be that bigotry pays? Separate schools, doctors, community centres, leisure centres, anything public money pays for gets built at least twice in NI, leading to low unemployment and high investment as all these places need staffing and maintenance. Maybe the UDA think that if they can work up a third warring faction of immigrants they can get the proportion of NI employment in the public sector up from 68% to 99%. Appeasement has changed the bank balance and electoral status of the terrorists, but not their mindset.

    Too late – I’m already here! 😉

    Ernie – glad you follow my threads so closely. How did you guess I’m part French?!

    Midlife – you’re spot on. There is a lot to be said for the situation in Ulster; relatively high disposable incomes, when we had the soldiers on the street we had the lowest crime rates in Europe and a grossly over paid and underworked public sector – a model for paradise in the U.K? 😆

    Sentences which contain no generalisations are pretty boring. You can’t make a point without generalising, certainly not on television.

    The question is whether there is enough truth in the generalisation to make it a sensible point, or whether it is over the line and is basically rubbish.

    I know very little about Northern Ireland, but the fact that there are (obviously) plenty of people there who are not “addicted” to hatred/violence/killing policemen or whatever doesn’t, by itself, seem to make the suggestion worthless or offensive. You just have to assume that the statement comes with the caveats about it being a generalisation, and deal with it on that basis. People who try to make perfectly nuanced points on television end up making no sense. It is a big weakness of the medium. 🙂

    I don’t have anything humorous or incisive to say about Rantzen’s more than likely ignorant comment, but I will take umbrage with the above.

    It’s true that sectarianism led to a situation where it may seem there is two of everything, but if a moment’s thought were utilised it becomes apparent that regardless of the split society there would still be two schools etc, and from my own experience more than likely full to bursting point. It’s just that one is a Catholic school, one is a Protestant school, or one leisure centre is in a Catholic area and not 50% under utilised, and the other leisure centre is in a Protestant area, and neither is it sitting half empty or losing money.

    I’ve not heard of doctors for Taigs and doctors for Huns, but I’ll take your word for it.

    In Italy they are fine with Gypsies, as long as they are ‘dead Gypsies’.

    Italian sunbathers relaxing and enjoying the beach next to the bodies of two dead Gypsy girls :

    Europe is entering an new era of barbarism.

    The Guardian, eh? Have you read it lately? Cosmo for the literate yummy mummies.

    Anyway, do you think much would change on Brighton beach should someone drown? Would anyone not related go home in mourning? I doubt it.

    The world’s going to hell in a Gucci handbag.

    Yes I have. Why you asking Sodafarls ? Were other papers saying that it never happened.

    You did see how I used the word ‘Europe’ didn’t you ?

    Just to be clear, I’m not answering any of Che’s questions.

    A Gypsy I’ve no connection with, drowning on a beach is of equal consequence to me as anyone else…Anglo Saxon, First Nation American, African, Celt…blah de blah. I’d imagine lots of people drowned on beaches all over Europe in the last year. Did the Guardian report all of them?

    I don’t see why their death should be special, but then I’m not the type of person who believes The Guardian has any insight into the wrongs of the world or inclination to right them.

    I don’t want to kick Ton’s head in, I’m just saying I could. Maybe.

    And I’m sure he would like some sodafarls, with bacon, sausages, blackpudding and beans or tomatoes.

    I don’t mind the statement. Just the headline grabbing slef serving old bitch who said it.

    Now if she had the balls to say “Northern Irish are all a shower of racist bastards” I’d applaud her, because broadly speaking she’d be right. But she didn’t so **** her.

    So you’re saying that “Northern Irish are all a shower of racist bastards” wouldn’t be ‘headline grabbing’ then ?

    have you been in Belfast recently, we’ve masses of immigrants here now, more polish that anywhere in the uk per head of population, best thing that has happened here is a foreign influence

    broadly speaking I’d say we are very tolerant to immigrants, it’s each other the inbreds seem to have a problem with.

    I’ve lived in glasgow and edinbrugh, belfast is a much more tolerant city. leeds/london/bradford/watford/manchester are all cities I’ve spent time in that feel very similar to belfast but currently most have worse gun crime than we do

    Bloke dropped dead in a pub I used to drink in, stuck him under the pool table whilst waiting for the ambulance to show.

    People carried on playing pool with his legs sticking out from the end of the table (one bloke had to slightly move one of the legs to get a better stance)and someone else drunk his leftover three quarters of a pint.

    Can’t imagine those two gypsies bodies would have caused that much distraction or upset to the evenings drinking.
