No Iam still there. The moderator appears to have taken my complaints on board as there are far fewer racist posts.

Can someone explain the difference (if there is any) between racial discrimination and racism?

I can appreciate how racial discrimination would be seen as being unfair but I am not sure what 'racism' is if all it involves is name calling.

So you have kissed and made up with the people there ? Do they still hold you in the same high esteem?
The problem with retirement is that you never get a day off.

The problem with playing golf with the seniors is that half the players could not see where your ball went and the other half can not remember.

No I have not kissed and made up. And they still regard me with envy and awe. FWIIW, the mod has removed some of the more extreme hate speech. I have just complained about one of the idiots there calling the boat people "parasites, let us see what action he takes. He knows that if he crosses me I will take affirmative action,

Actually , Dippy has a valid point . These are human beings we are talking about .
However they are being used by the human trafficker criminals and by the
woke wanker mob . Both sets of undesirables have an ulterior motive .
The trafficker mob .....money
The woke brigade ... a false sense of worthiness
Cos anyone who would encourage their own children/grand children to cross the
English channel in an inflatable is a liar .

More to the point ..what on earth is happening in the EU that desperate migrants will risk life and limb to escape such tyranny?

The real problem is that large sections of the world still think that the UK is a land flowing with milk and honey, social security benefits and personal freedom - then they arrive wet and cold on the south coast and learn the truth

I think it has more to do with having friends and relatives who already live here and will give them a home. There is also the fact that English is spoken by more people than those who speak French or German for example. If people want to come here it could be that imigration tolerance has reached its limit in Europe.
