I see that my MP (well, Tory candidate) - Philip Dunne, Ludlow - is in
trouble for saying to his Labour opponent, a Sikh, that he was 'talking
through his turban'.
This has sparked the usual outrage, from the usual quarters, with calls
for Mr Dunne to resign. Of course he has been accused of 'racism' -
hardly a unique charge these days.
We are seeing more and more of this intolerance, and of course it's
generally led and orchestrated by the usual subjects - and backed up by
the agenda-driven MSM. We are gradually getting to a state in this
country where no-one will be able to say anything to anyone soon -
unless it's an ethnic minority criticising a white person, which of
course is perfectly acceptable.
Banter and name-calling is a long established British tradition, so
perhaps it's not unreasonable to say to those who don't seem able to
accept our way of life that maybe they would be happier moving elsewhere.
'You are talking through your hat' is, and and always has been in this
country, a polite way of saying that you disagree with someone - so
what's wrong with modifying that to accomodate other kinds of headgear?
