antony1969 - 2018-11-21 5:51 PM......…………...Dum dum ... If you'd put just plain old fake news alls good but you choose to use my birth place to make some kind of point ... Very racist

Are you arguing that the good folk of Yorkshire are all of a different race to the inhabitants of the rest of the UK Antony? If they are, where on earth are they from? I thought most of your reservations about the inhabitants related to their religion, not race?

It seems Huddersfield has been in existence since before the iron age, so there seems little chance that a single identifiable, dominant race could, actually, persist. According to Wiki the white population seems to be about 80%, compared to about 90% for the rest of the UK.

Therefore, I don't see how you can attach "racist" to any description of such a polyglot bunch as the British, with their mix of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Roman, Norman French, Flemish, Viking, Jews, Roma, Huguenots, Indians, Africans, Germans, Russians (Jewish), Irish, Arabs, Belgians, and more. We are a race defined only by where we were born and live, not by our ethnicity.

Derogatory references to "Yorkshire" may certainly be discriminatory, just as references to "leafy Sussex" are discriminatory when intended to give the impression of a pampered part of Britain (I wish! ), but using "racist" in that context seems to me wildly hyperbolic. Yorkshire fake news may even be accurate, depending on whether the news was, indeed, fake, and originated from Yorkshire.

Methinks thou doth too much protest!


According to the loony liberal lefty brigade .........It appears only white middle aged Tory voting Anglo Saxons can be racists ..........

Where else could this nonsensical statement exist other than the insular Mad Hatter world.

I never said it was dead (I presume Im nobby), I said it wouldnt win and overcome Europe.

Then again, it does seem that some people do not learn from History.
