Now't so queer as folk!

UKIP councillor expresses his views as to the cause of the recent flooding as reported on BBC website. I guess we have some extremists in this country too.

Oh dear!!  They seem to have some odd people in the party don't they? At least the public can see what they are really like.

I wonder what he will say when the sun comes out and all the waters have receded (probably a drought is caused, because of the same reason!)

And people seriously vote for these UKIP Clowns?  Huh
The current government may be run by an idiot, but even Dave Cameron as PM is better than UKIP IMO.

You know why they never go camping? Simple, most of them are camper than a row of tents anyway Tongue

Re: Now't so queer as folk!

Agreed.
I don't believe in special treatment for anybody. 
We are all the same.
That is why I get so annoyed when minority groups get such large amounts of special treatment.
If you want to be treated equally, you need to behave equally.
Of course if it's a medical reason, then that's a different matter.

Some people demand equality though, according to the Daily F,,, er I mean Mail, you can't even look sideways at a foreign National in this Country without they cry "racist!".

Re: Now't so queer as folk!

The same can be said for the gay community though, or even [mremoved] I mean 'travellers'.
They are both minority, granted 1 is a pest, and the other shouldn't be seen as a minority, because sexual preference shouldn't be a consideration, but for some gays, it seem's they demand to be more equal then the average non minority man in the street.

Re: Now't so queer as folk!

While you’re moderating, is it really right and proper that a not very nice term is used in the title of this thread to depict gay people, albeit that I don’t doubt the poster meant no insult?

Re: Now't so queer as folk!

Tsk tsk - you'll be accusing me of whistling dirty tunes next  Grin.  I was using the phrase in it's original meaning from back in the 1960s.

edit: and the issue is now pretty much moribund given the councillor is no longer "under the whip."
