Sometimes I read some of the online UK tabloidish publications. I was just reading one that said some BBC host was being fired and was "reported to the police(wtf?)" because he said some minor racially sensitive remarks, that not only were not racist or remotely offensive IMO; but were pretty much the truth.

The thought police are already pretty bad here in the US, but not that bad.

Well being from the UK I know all about this tale.

The guys name is Kilroy, he does a morning chat show.
He was WELL out of line with what he said and thats summut comming from me.

The guy said in a newspaper [he writes a small column in one] that ALL arabs are - to sum it up in a nutshell - trouble, never put anything into the world. He also said that the UK/USA should go to the arab countrys and FINISH them off.

I think hes a racist.
Went well over the top - branding all arabs bad cos of that 9/11 thing.
Not right in my opinion.

I agree some Arabs are wankers, but saying that so too are some Asians, Africans, Amercians, Europeans etc etc etc.

The guys show has been suspended, he has 1 month [4 weeks] to do summut about whats been happening, otherwise he could get sacked and sued.

And YES the UK is VERY strict on racist scum, if ya say Paki over here it is a fine at least, can be a 6 month jail sentence.
The N'' word is a NO GO for certain, would mean a deff'' prison sentence.

The Laws in the UK are built to suit the immagrants IMHO, they get better treatment than the actual peeps born here, but thats another story.

As for Kilroy - he had a valid argument about the Arabs, but IMHO he worded it ALL WRONG, he ended up branding the whole Arab soceity, they are only fit for suicide bombings and shit like that, which isnt right cos theirs some good Arabs out their.

Yeah, I only saw some quotes, and the quotes I saw were not any big deal. They were basically just factual like "Arabs killed 3000 people in New York." It didn't say "ALL Arabs."


However, that is fucked up that you can get fined and or arrested for speech. It is definitely not a free speech area where you live.

I am against racist. I think it is the lowest most miserable form of collectivism. BUT, you should not be arrested or even fined or ticketed for it. Actions are criminal, thoughts are not.

EXACTLY bud.
I agree, I agree 110% it isnt FREE SPenis EnlargementECH HERE.

I cant go into this [peeps will call me a racist like lastime remember ;) ] but to sum the UK's law situation - its made so that the Non-whites get priority, i.e. they get off with more crimes, get away easyer etc even though they [blacks] get pulled in more [not coz their black coz they are more likely to have drugs] , the UK's laws are a FUCKING SHAM,,,I hope tony blair drops dead that sack of turd, everyone HATES Labour party overhere, bring Thatcher back I say.

Anyways, if ya any colour in the UK apart from white you have more chance of getting away with crime.
Reasons being - the UK were bastards many years ago, we rules alot of the world, conqured the caribean and Africa and fuck knows what else- anyways it all went downhill, we could not fund our selves and them lands, so we let um rot [some] and they ended up a shit-tip - real poor and fucked to the bone.

I blame my own country for whats happening in South Africa and Zimbabwe know...we gave all the land to whites < aint good.

Now, what happened is alot of the countrues the UK ran started re-voking and fighting against us, they were given independance [nearly all] and left to sort um selves out.

What happened is that the UK gouvenrment said we owned you....so now as ya going independant ya have a choice .... stay in the new [example - India] of come to the UK as we have run ya country for years so ya can come along.
So tons and tons of many cultures came to the UK...THEY WERE ENTITLED TO, we killed most of their ancestors and ruled them and now had a chance of a better life, so they took it.
Over the yeard they had to put up with lots of raceists , and thats why the laws are so HARD in the UK, cos we have SO MANY diff'' cultures.......bare in mind the whole of England is smaller than the state of Georgia.....and yet we have as many cultures here as the entire USA.
Tthis is why we have laws favuroing the other races, cos I suppose we had to [alot of bad blood] and they complained, and theirs lots of human rights here for them.

Hope that sums some of the sitiation up and I presented it in a non biased way, if not tell me.

Redzulu,

The TRUTH is not racist. Its just commentary. People twist things around. they think if you tell the truth and it happens to hav a racial element., you are racist. Its the liars who are racist. So, in other words I didnt see anything racist in your post. You just presented how you see things and why.

You would be astonished at some of the shit that goes on over here, the policies, the laws being passed, the logic behind the governments thinking( which is farcical!), and lets not forget the most fucked up tax system ever known to man! Land of Hope and Glory! Yeah right!!Perhaps I will end up in jail for saying this!!! For the most part, the people in the UK, are good hard working people, that just want to have there chance to be the best that they can be, but thanks to the governments policies, there is no hope for this ever happening!I hope that I haven't strayed too much from the topic, but the simple matter is that you can not do much here, and most definitely you can not voice how you feel, especially if your in the public eye!Your only allowed to work your bullocks off, and pay taxes, and go home, and do it all over again the next day! If your lucky, you may have a bit of spare change at the end of the week to get a couple pints, and thats a fact!!!!My opinion, but I dare say it want change, so don't even try to engage me in an argument anyone, as my beliefs are concrete!I am living the great English dream!

Thats about it dude, the UK works the second longest hours in the world - behind Japan, that could be argued ''the developed world'' for the ass'ess out their.

But Girthius is right, the system here is WANK.

Lets put a sign over the UK, saying ''all immagrants and people wanting a free house, free hospital, free legal aid, free car, free fucking this that and the other, step this way.....in the small print it says ... .. By the way the people who wre born here....BRITISH people, blood in their veins dont get fuck all for free,,,,they have to work all hours god sends and have no free speech''


^^^ That is the UK.

What?? Under what laws can they lock you up? Do you have any example cases? I just can't believe this... maybe if you shouted it at a black judge as he was letting you off a sentence, but just for using them?

You say that there are laws favouring black people now - and so they are favouring white people too. White people are finally realising what it feels like to have the shit end of the stick, and all i hear is complaints. Bring back Thatcher, bring in the BNP.. please, as if that's going to solve things. What really needs doing is a change in social attitudes, on white and black peoples parts.

On the original topic of the thread - libel and slander, yes; but these laws exist in most countries in the world, if not all.

My ex was a police officer and as you are from the UK you should also know, YOU CAN go to prison for saying Paki or Nigga in the UK, FACT.

I stick to my opnions about the laws fav'' other cultures.

And sticking with the topic, the guy who said all them things, well over 90% of the UK public that were asked about it [results out today] said that they AGREE with him on the Arab issue, people are SICK AND TIRED of these immagrants coming to oir country and getting better treatment than us, actual REAL British.

I am white so maybe I am biased some, I will admit that - what race are you Anon?
However what I have said is THE GENRAL feelings in this country, people are TIRED of it.

I aint wasting my breath on it, I know I have worked alongside the police in Drink driving cases and other such crime, and from what I have dealt with, BLACK [coloured] people are nore likely to get off with the crime than a White man, white is the native race to the UK so I mean the natives here.
Laws are built to suit our coloured freinds, immagrants or not - this needs to change so if a crime is done we all get the same kinfe, not diff'' rules for one and other for another.

Just saying opinions, even if they are not racist is not libel or slander. And it is a civil crime, not a criminal one subject to prison time. Also, you would actually have to say something derogatory about someone ( a specific person) that is malicious and untrue.

I figured it would be that way, with most people agreeing with him. So why do the "powers that be" ( The television bosses, polticians,etc) feel such a need to overreact and quickly "disassociate" themselves from his words?

Libel and Slander do not exist in many countries. But if you live in the Middle East and you say something bad or at all controversial, you could get thrown in prison, stoned or even beheaded.

I remember in England there was this whole Prince Charles Sex Scandal thing that no one could talk about but was the one question everyone wanted to ask. I remember if the tabloids printed something about Prince Charles and the Butler, they would get sued or something.

Now there is this whole Princess Diana Conspiracy thing going on. Something about how she predicted her own death in a car crash and something about Prince Charles wanting to kill her, so he could re-marry.

I dunno mate, its the UK, its FUCKED UP.

This Kilroy did an interview on TV tonight.
Was 15 mins long, with a BLACK [famous] British media guy.
Anyways it was intense, he was grilled left right and center.
Basiclly the papers got it WRONG [as usual] they printed this article TWICE ... it had been printed in April [same one] and no complaints...weird???

anyways Kilroy stucks by his story....I agree with him now after looking into it more, his words were twisted dudes.

He is like the majority in the world [hopeing] that these extremeist arabs like suicide bombers and 9/11 jackass'ess should be executed, he also went on to say the WORLD needs to get the Arab world UP TO DATE...meaning their laws and views are PRIMITIVE....I,e they treat women like dogs, they are strict for shitty things etc etc etc - Kilroy said these issues were his main target when doing the column.

Anyways , alot of the UK, is agrreing . they WANT HIS SHOW BACK.

I say HURRAY for Kilroy....the guys had BALLS to say this stuff...and its TRUE.

Also he mentioned what Bigbutnottoo has, the UK doesnt have a FREEDOM OF SPenis EnlargementECH.... like he said where the fuck is it?????

-------------

Nexus:
As for the Diana and charles stuff..
I reckon she was MURDERED for deff''' the royal family and Gov'' in the UK are the evelist bastards going....you yanks dunno the half of what goes on here.
Discuss diana in another thread please if ya would, me bad mentioning it here.
But I will add this - the UK is GREAT, everyone LOVES the UK, they reckon we are SOOOOOO NICE Penis EnlargementOPLE and the GOV'' and ROYALS are great ... WRONG, our GOV'' NO JOKE kept hidden for 15 years the fact that the UK public were eating - LISTEN - Infected beef with BSE....only uncovered in the mid/late 90's the GOV covered it up....what type of regiome does that??? you USA peeps have a good leader in Bush no matter what ya say ... AT LEAST HE HAS the BSE shit in Iowa at the moment out in the open RIGHT AT THE START....unlike the UK which hid it for 15 years. Many people ahve the disease human mad cow disease and are dead.

The UK system is diabolical.
Dont belive me? search on google on articles for BSE in the UK and cover ups.....theirs TONS and TONS.
Even the UFO shit over here, we had a Roswell once here - some of the men who witnessed the craft were executed in their own homes [not proved] said they were burgled but the wifes had an inquery years back saying the UK GOV'' had them assasinated for leaking vital info'' - this country is DEADLY.
