Sorry mate, thought I was talking to nugent
Easy mistake....no worries
Those that voted because they were fed up of being told what to do by unelected EU officials must be sleeping easy now that the unelected Dominic Cummings is running government policy. Add in an unelected Prime Minister and it's all coming together nicely. Take back control. What a fucking mess,
Now the tweet is unavailable
The Leave.eu tweet was the height of idiocy, or at least I thought it was until I saw the sheer amount of online virtue-signallers falling over themselves to let everyone within earshot know how racist and xenophobic they thought it was.
We don’t elect Prime Ministers in this country
‘Racist’ has been abused so much by the bedwetters that it has lost almost all of its meaning.
All right clever clogs we know that. He has no mandate then. Adds up to the same thing really.
I agree. I didn't think it was racist. I just thought it was stupid as well. Kids playground stuff.
Oddly the "Two world wars and one world cup" probably bugged more, apart from being the stuff of a Millwall terrace, it was England that won the world cup, the rest of Britain couldn't give a toss and in any case, Germany's won four of the things
Arron Banks apologises for xenophobic tweet targeting Merkel - https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/oct/09/arron-banks-apologises-leave-eu-tweet-calling-merkel-kraut
So thinking the tweet is wrong is more idiotic than the tweet itself? Not sure about that.
The general rule of thumb is to always avoid the comments anyway
The wife's best friend is a German living in the UK. Haven't heard from her about this, but I wonder if she'd find it kids playground stuff.
Wouldn't most sensible people just laugh it off as stupid bastards with a twitter account. I just thought it was stupid myself. Obviously I'm not German. Maybe they are properly offended. I dunno. I like to think they are a bit more grown up than that but that's probably just another stereotype on my behalf.
Well that's the thing, perspective. We've grown up with don't mention the war, Hitler jokes and so on.
If you're German, no idea of your status in three weeks time, then you see it differently. To you it's not a stupid bastard with an account, it's the official account of a movementt hat 52% voted for.
Knowing what it's like to live in a foreign country with a young family, I wouldn't laugh it off.
Never mind all that.
Just leave Colleen Rooney alone.
I wouldn't laugh it off. I just thought that people don't take them seriously. I can see why some might be offended though of course. I suppose I think that everyone thinks they're full of shit like I do.
It's Farridges lot, loads of people take them seriously.
