Oh dear. Your racism is beginning to show again...


Fine, if you want to equate integration with racism.


I equate "but there's a limit to how big do you want your ghetto to be" with racism jra. Nothing to do with integration, just your description of foreign people.


Well, how do you want me to describe large enclaves of people with the same type of culture and religion?


You think ghetto is the appropriate word?

What culture/religion would it be that these people living in these 'ghettos' have?


Ghetto doesn't have to be a slum area. It could be any culture or religion and not necessarily foreign(from abroad) people as you call them.

They could be described as that. Apparently, many of these people haven't even bothered to learn much English.

They would more accurately be described as 'the British Quarter'. Historically ghettos are reminiscent of slums, which these are not.

That was then, this is now, regarding ghettos, but you'd know that if you'd read the links above.

Every dictionary definition of ghetto describes poor people crowded into a rough area.

And that is now.

Ghetto is a rather pejorative word to be using, as you well know.

Now, about the part you missed out, highlighted in large text for you. :dunno:

The Conservative party chairman, Brandon Lewis, has been accused of selectively responding to allegations of Islamophobia and other abusive online behaviour by Tory members, after 10 new cases were highlighted but no action taken.

Fresh material gathered by an anonymous Twitter user who has been drawing attention to the issue included one member’s complaint that “we’ll be a Muslim country under sharia law if Labour get in” and another’s that Muslims “steal dogs”.

A third member, who photographed himself with Boris Johnson in 2015, once wrote that he was “going through a few magazines the other day down at the local mosque … then the rifle jammed”.

The additional cases were drawn to the attention of the Conservative party online over the weekend but no action appears to have been taken......


Leaked letters also show Downing Street was forced to issue an apology to a Conservative association chairman who resigned over the party’s handling of Islamophobia complaints.

Ajay Jagota resigned as chair of the South Shields Conservative association in January, criticising the party’s failure to deal with his allegation.

In a letter to Lewis copied to Theresa May, Jagota said he had been subjected to “racist comments”, and despite raising the issue several times he had not had a response.

I have never heard that one before, it is worse than the exploding prayer mats and prophets going through the roof joke that gets sent around.

Can we have some new material please! I saw Paul Choudhary in the Houses of Parliament using Gavin Williamson as the butt of all his jokes and he was funny--but if I'd said what he did :yikes:

My complaints of Tory Islamophobia were ignored, so I had to resign

The party I was proud of seemed to want to brush my case under the carpet. What is that if not institutional racism?

Theresa May famously once said “they call us the nasty party”. If my experience reflects how we handle serious complaints, it wouldn’t be unfair to call it the racist party.

That may well be why he is so concerned about Labour membership on another thread...

Yes, it's a good start.
Long way to go to catch Labour though

"A letter from the party's general secretary, Jennie Formby, revealed the figures after she was pushed by MPs for specific details.
She said 96 members were immediately suspended from the party for their conduct between April 2018 and January 2019, and 12 were expelled."

So you justify your racism on the premise that others may be racist too - disgusting. :shake head:
