Good Old Boy #38
Rick Muir has a good article on Comment is Free defending multiculturalism and making some sensible suggestions.
The comments are hostile, and fall into two categories:
1) "I am too thick to understand the argument that Rick is making. I am angry about this, and it is the fault of the author."
2) "I have not read the article, but I believe it is about 'multiculturalism'. This has provoked me to write on the internet about how I don't like immigrants."
All of which made 'pregthwr's' comment all the funnier:
"This so-called Rick Muir is typical of the chianti-swilling, stoke-newington living chatterarti who are destroying Christmas and this country.
Mince pies? I bet they are organic mince pies made by Guatamalan immigrants not good wholesome ENGLISH mince pies.
Yes ENGLAND! Have you ever heard of that so-called Rick - I think not.
Only if the common-sense patriots who comment on 'articles' such as this are put in charge of the country rather than muesli-munching PPEists who have never done real job in their life will we have any future.
So in summation so-called Rick - BOO! CiF posters - HUZZAH
FOR QUEEN AND COUNTRY!!!!!"
