Pat Condell om Muhammed the Bear



Jeg elsker den mand. Ikke alene for hans skarpe meninger og skarpsindige analyser, men også for hans helt vidunderlige engelsk. Ikke en stavelse går man glip af.

(Tak til Steen.)

Racisme at kalde folk "englænder"

Man skal virkeligt passe på med hvad man kalder folk nu om dage. En hvid irer er således blevet idømt ti ugers fængsel for i et øjebliks ophidselse at beskylde en hvid walisisk kvinde for at være englænder. (HT Tim Blair)
A grandfather has been given a prison sentence for racial harassment after calling a Welsh woman "English".

Mick Forsythe used the term during an argument over a scratched car in his Welsh home town.

He called the vehicle's owner, Lorna Steele, an "English bitch".

She and her husband took great offence at the jibe and decided to take him to court.

The 55-year-old former lorry driver was found guilty of racially aggravated disorderly behaviour, and received a ten-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months.




Det arme offer for denne åbenlyse anglofobi er tilfreds med at retfærdigheden nu er sket fyldest:
[S]he insisted the incident was no joking matter.

She said: "I'm Welsh – I was born in Welshpool.

"But we couldn't let him get away with what he said."

Hendes mand - som i øvrigt er den eneste englænder i sagen - har heldigvis støttet sin viv i hendes kvide:
Her husband, a 40-year-old Englishman originally from Hull, added of Mr Forsythe: "He is a racist. He doesn't like the English.

"He's from Ireland originally and he's lived in Wales for years and some of them don't like English people."

Det er ikke nemt efterhånden. Måske skulle man helt lade være med at tale til andre mennesker. Man vil jo nødigt risikere at støde nogen.
