I am not sure of the severity of it over there though so naturally I pose this question to the english on this board.

If I came over to england and said to a Muslim..."your mother wears army boots!!" could I possibly face jail time?


You'd wake up with a crowd around you. Britain does not have the same culture as the US, we're a different society and a different country; at least you wouldn't get shot for being a twat...

Freedom of speech according to much of the media seems to be allowed when they deem it fit.

I've always had the impression that American politicians fear their public far more than British politicians do theirs.

I wonder if thats because they know having a population armed to the teeth makes them more vulnerable to a successful uprising, whereas ours only pretend to show deference to us because all we can do is poke them with sticks. :dunno:

Guns were banned at the recent NRA convention. Can't think why. :wink:

They are always banned when the President or VP speak. The Secret Service does not negotiate on that.

Once the big wigs were gone, the guns were no longer banned. There were people all over the area, inside and out, very well armed. :paranoid:

Maybe, but I have to give the nod to your media. They don't suck up like ours, to curry favor. That's how Americans wound up on British forums. We were reading British media to get a different perspective.

We have several nationalities on the forum and you only want the opinions of the English.

:roll:


It's not xenophobic. If he wants to know what English people in England think, it's up to him. :dunno:




FUNNY how jack and lm think it's ok to be racist and xenophobic towards Americans though isn't it.
Or is it just to the white Americans?


Typical lefties, I can't be racist I'm not a tory bolloxs, and yet their words say different.


Racist?
Everytime you have a pop at me you show how fucking stupid you are.
America is not a race it's a nationality.

It's Statism, which comes from both sides of the political equation.
