We all need a good laugh.

Yet reality is on the side of Greeks as we cannot carry on living with delusions!


No... that was just one of the early signs of Greece going the wrong way. Why is it humor to say something offensive about other people who have done nothing bad to you? :roll:


what did the fat lady say back to them, how did she react? did she start crying and go to the back of the bus hiding? or did she put them all in their place with a comment or gesture?


I can't remember but she didn't seem upset or too distressed by the situation. She might even have seemed quite proud to be a big lady and getting lots of attention. I'm sure if she wasn't, she would have done something about it. My mum used to tell me that during the war and for many years after, because of the starvation in Greece, it was regarded as very attractive to be plump. It's all about cultural perceptions.

The racist thug is Alexandros Plomaritis, 44, a deputy candidate in Greece's parliamentary elections last summer. GD claimed they didn't know they were being filmed but judging from the quality of the fiming I doubt it.

Greece belongs to Greeks, charlieboy. If foreigners don't like it, they can bugger off to London or some other shithole. :wink:



And where should the hundreds of thousands of Cypriots in the UK bugger off to if they don't like it cyppoboy?

I wouldn't give a f*ck! I'm a Cypriot, not a bloody charlie!

Because he was joking, but the British TV channel presented this as evidence of racism. :roll: BTW, he was not a GD MP candidate.

The real problem here is the presence of millions of illegal immigrants in Greece. But the British hypocrites mentioned nothing of this growing problem. :twisted:

Meanwhile, UKIP, EDL and BNP are going from strength to strength with the help of British propaganda (world's No.1), re-inventing themselves as "anti-immigration", "anti-terrorist" and "neo-nationalist" patriots (rather than admit they are the blueprint for any racist neo-nazis groups starting up in other parts of Europe).

Pollocks 1...!!! ... At the last Local Council elections in GB, in the Spring of last year, the fascist frigging buggers of the British National Party lost a great deal of their support and were thrown off practically all (if not all) their local council seats. They did as laughably badly as the jokers of ELAM/Golden Dawn at the CY Pres Elections a few days ago.

Pollocks 2...!!! UKIP did well in coming second at the Eastleigh By-election but only the psephologically-challenged would rely on notoriously fickle and unreliable GB by-election results as measures of how people would vote at a General Election.

Pollocks 3...!!! Those of us, who wouldn't even wrap their fish and chips in the reactionary GB newspaper The Daily Mail, ("g"IG is clearly an avid and rabid reader) will know that the EDM like the BNP are fragmenting and are on a downward slope.

Pollocks 4... !!! ...errr ... well am sure there is one ... :P

Bill c. can carry on burying his hairy head in the sand and hypocritically excusing the British Far Right parties (at least 3 of them) - whilst the Guardian reminds us that the most recent election saw UKIP surge ahead beating the Conservatives (who are pretty far right anyway) as has been predicted since their great showing at previous elections ...

The Ukip leader took to the airwaves after his party scored its best result in a Westminster byelection, when its vote soared by 27.8 percentage points to secure second place.


I'm not saying the haven't got a point. The British have seen what minority groups have done to Cyprus and they don't want the same to happen to their country.

You'd have to be completely ignorant of British politics to label UKIP a racist neo-nazi group... :roll:

Fine, I'm not the one who throws such labels around. But, UKIP are far more to the right than GD, for example, as UKIP want nothing to do with other countries whereas GD at least are supporters of EU co-operation with other states.

But, between UKIP, EDL and BNP (as well as some wings of the Conservatives) - that's a hell of a lot of anti-foreign feeling.
