    The trouble is that half the time it isn't the coloured people complaining, it isn't the muslims complaining they are as embarrassed as the next person, it is some twonk who wants to feel their own importance by making an issue out of nothing because they have failed at everything else in life.

    When I was a 'lad' Wog didn´t refer to anyone who was black it was an acronym for Western Oriental Gentleman, so referred to Arabs, Italians, etc so olive skinned people. Why all of a sudden it should now be seen to only refer to black people and be racist I don´t understand.

    I went in a shop in Croydon, Great big Black geezer was the owner. He had Golliwogs in there. Jan said, "Golliwogs, not seen those for ages". I said, you can't say that anymore". Big black guy said, call me a bloody wog if you like as long you buy something, bloody brilliant.
