Apartheid in GB

#1
as we natives are now second class citizens in our own country, isn't that called Apartheid?


shifted before the usual happens and it gets messy, which is a pity as there were some amusing posts and it had potential to stay that way. If the "grown ups" want to have a serious chat about the issue start a thread in CA or Int Cell. The NAAFI is not the place. mk

No, it's called social inclusivity. Apartheid is the exact opposite, but at least you know where you stand (unless it's reserved for the other lot).

If you're gay AND a native which class can you claim? Do you have to officially claim gay status or can one just mince about in Jelly sandals with a T shirt tied at the chest?

Is there a reason for asking?

How long before you can be a native and join the 3rd class? Is it one or two generations? I could be going up in the world!

Yes, the opening post sugegsted that natives are second class citizens. A further post indicated that natives are now third class citizens after gays. I was just asking for clarification on which class a native gay person should claim at their local government office. Ideally, if one would like to be put into a classification, one would want to claim the higher bracket as I am sure the perks are much nicer. I was curious as to how one would go about requesting the higher class status, for reference only of course.

Can one be officially gay AND be a native or is one forced to chose?

Do gay females get classed as 4th class as they are technically woman and so come after men or does the gay bit elevate them?

So therefore an immigrant pregnant woman working as a traffic warden would be the height of sophistication?

I better get my make up kit out...

One question and so many answers....

Gay females are technically women. Technically? Woman and technical in the same sentence is bad grammar.

Women come after men? Isn't that a bit selfish? I know it's quicker and easier that way, but you should at least try to get her to come first.

Does the gay bit elevate them? No, you're thinking of ladders.

Only if she's waiting for her mock GCSE results.

nodigitsever, if it wasn't for the fact that your spelling and grammar were atrocious (yes, even worse than mine!), I'd say that you were a journo hoping to get some squaddies to say nasty un-pc things about immigrants so you could quote them in your left-wing newspaper.

All of your posts seem to be about immigrants (and now seemingly gays too), or how vast hordes of immigrants have attacked/robbed/raped/cheated you, your entire family, and all your neighbours.

Do you by any chance live in an asylum centre?

No. You are confused. Apartheid occurs when people's rights are dependent on the colour of their skin.

One example would be the former regime in South Africa, where a person's right to vote in elections was dependent on the colour of their skin.

This contrasts with democratic, anti-racist organisations like our own National Black Police Association where a person's right to vote in elections is dependent on the colour of their skin.

Err, emm - I hope that clears things up for you.

Is there a National White Police Association as well? Or National Asian Police Association for that matter? What about a National Red-haired Police Association?

Just curious.

I've heard lots of talk about black issues. Even some about brown issues and yellow issues. Green issues are in abundance.

But the only white issue I've come across is called semen.

(Oh and that stuff that comes out of zits).

Ffs man, grow a set! The 1st/2nd/3rd class scenario you are alluding to, only applies if you want to take something from society.
As a general rule, those at the bottom of the ladder give little and take much from the system, whereas, those at the top, give much and take little.
What is it that you think life owes you? Does your tax input exceed what you take from the system in terms of schooling and healthcare for your children, family income supplement, tax credits etc? Probably not. :roll:

No NWPA or NR-HPA, but then white people and gingers haven't been historically oppressed (maybe not about the gingers) - so do they really need representation in the same way that black people, gays, women etc do?

Yes, it's possible that the pendulum will swing (arguably has swung) too far the other way, but without organisations championing the rights of opressed minorities we might still be in the 50s in terms or parity.
