Total misinterpretation. It isn't Cambridge students kicking up a fuss, it's the anti-fascist magazine Searchlight. Just clearing that one up in case anyone doesn't understand.
It's a stupid protest though, and I echo the view that a reader posted in response to it, if we're not allowed to have themes like at balls, presumably Searchlight magazine will be against German being taught in European schools?
Chuck me another mag, mate? Just checked where I live, o yes, Britain.
"If you are white and upper class maybe it does not get into your head that this can be distasteful." So being white is distasteful now is it? Feck my old boots, the loonies are getting out of hand.
Perhaps theyâd like to consider what life could have been like under a German or Japanese empire? Whilst it may have been imperialistic & exploitative, the British Empire did bring hospitals, railways, industry, trade & for the most part, peace.
I don't give a flying feck about these cnuts. I wish that they would just creep off to what ever Marxist utopia they choose and leave my friends, my family and myself alone.
These swine make me want to puke blood. They want to destroy everything that this Country stands for.
If they are so dense that they cannot see when something is a bit of fun then I don't even feel sorry for them. I just wish that they would die: Preferably, somewhere other than the UK. This way they would not place an additional burden on the NHS
A total non story. Who amongst us has not had firebrand ideals? Did none of you want to change the world when you were 17? Who amongst us has not dressed up as little Miss Muffet and gone around the naval dockyards calling out 'Want to see my tuffet?'
Whoops, sorry. I meant, have we not all adopted stupid ideas when young? Like the idea that drinking 11 pints of Old Bishpos Stnky Finger and then going for a Curried goat afterward?
These students are exactly the same as any of us. I live in this university city, and see the same thing every year. The freshmen all arrive, filled with ideals, ambitions, bursting with new notions. That generations before them have had! Give them 6 months and they will have discovered 'The Granta, The Anchor and STD Sally.
Our Glorious British Empire, the period in which we brought civilisation, language, culture, science and wholesale abuse to the rest of the planet. Hoorah!
Many of those who we brought into the light are still somewhat grateful to us, let's not forget that - the Merkans - we gave them a country and language, the Indians - they got reservations of course, oh, sorry, the OTHER Indians - did rather well under us they did. Do a 'before, during and after' on ANY African country we had under our boot-heel and you'll find they did alright - don't see them building many railways NOW do you?
China - well, we got Hong Kong, they got smack - who's complaining?
The French? All the better for the odd period of English control, albeit not during Empire.
The Argentinians? Aren't they glad we've still got the Falklands? I should coco, because if we didn't, they'd still have Galtieri.
It is a glorious past I tell you, and we should be rightly proud. All these native wallahs, if left to their own devices will just pick themselves a murderous despot. Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Ghengis Khan, Hitler, that bloke in Zimbabwe, er, sorry, Rhodesia to name but a few - not ours I think you'll find, but home grown lunatics.
Proud to have such a cultural heritage I tell you - no, don't thank me for the industrial revolution, I wasn't born then, but my forebears were.
Nothing to be ashamed of and everything to be proud of. We ran our colonies better than many of our European colleagues ran theirs, and we all did a better job than the natives.
Stand down, searchlight magazine are so carp about being lefties that even other lefties hate them, some people even acuse them of being a state asset, I just think they are a dead end alley for raving single issue tosspots and a career for Gerry Gable.
Another bunch of useless , unwashed, lazy, unwanted, good for nothing children who sadly think that because this is supposed to be a monarchist democracy, with an armed forces consisting of volunteers, that are willing to fight to the death to preserve the right of free and unfettered speech, they can just say whatever is on their mind. What a bunch of losers!
