Would just like to say that in balance whilst the scallywags who use the racecard to get away stuff get my goat too, the vast majority of "persons of colour" are hardwroking decent law abiding folks who dont need to nor would wish to use such tactics

No No No..... this thread is for grumpy oldsters - COMPLETELY different from pet hates.

Trendy clothes shops - I can't find anything in South of the River that either fits me or doesn't look like a teent weeny dress for a barbie doll :(

Whether Trixta is BBW or not, wise to stay away from racism, homophobia etc.

Ok. As witnessed yesterday. Foreign tourists who have no concept of queue convention. Possibly the last bastion of englishness that is sadly being eroded among 'our own' it has to be said.

Ok for you SL? Fwiw I don't think the post you mention was in any way wrong per se

Be honest Andreas son. When 'really' was the last time someone called you that?
