They are oppressive bully's, only in groups though. They give rise to the notion we can all be bullies if given an opportunity.

I am fairly sure if some left wing Comedian had tweeted something ''amusing'' about the Royal family's supposed German origins , like a baby in spiked helmet   would not have been sacked , as idiots like the late and not missed Jeremy Har and the ridiculous Mark Steel do it on panel shows constantly

0:03 this photo looks much like any other Royal baby op to me.. i would not have known at a glance whether it was kate or the other one who is NOT 100% snow white.. that is only an issue for the people infatuated with the minutiae of the Royals lives.. any person who is genuinely upset by racism as a problem is more concerned with the countless thousands of brown skinned people inc children killed by UK military in the name of the crown..

@5888max The plan is written in black and white, you can even find it on Wikipedia. IF IT IS NOT BEING CARRIED OUT, JUST TELL ME ONE PART OF IT THAT ISN'T HAPPENING. JUST ONE. You can't, can you? Because it *IS* happening, whatever name you attach to it. You've shot yourself in the foot by engaging in this discussion. You must now admit the Kalergi Plan is real, or skulk off with your tail between your legs. Isn't open debate a bitch when you're in the wrong? That's why people like you jump straight to insults.

WTF political correctness is such a fucking joke. That "photo" is just plain bullshit and obviously set up to show "just how multi cultural we are" its like the constant bombardment of tv commercials showing black men with white woman and half cast/mixed race kids. Its offensive to think that this is FORCED onto the public and that a black man will discard black woman to be "multi cultural" or vice versa. Government needs to face up to what they have done and caused

The fact is that MONARCHY is a form of racism. What amazes me is how the far right who support racism are aren't upset that their racist monarchy have their blood line blackened. I can imagine all the little alt-right incels realizing that their white imperialist privilege has totally been shattered. Young white men have totally lost their place in the world yet many still support the imperialist, capitalist, monarchy, that has now relocated their seed to the dustbin of history. Personally I find out all amusing and admire the dissonant hypocrisy, people are so stupid!

Claims that the BBC sacking a well known Leftie some how proves that the BBC has a Left leaning political bias is staggeringly illogical. If anything it reflects a right wing bias. But such comments show just how desperate English nationalists are to protect poster boy Tommy Yaxley Lennon from public scrutiny. 90% of commenters here are obviously Tommy "Robinson" cronies.

Oh how the BBC has fallen. It seems to of been taken over by the Leave campaign . The facts are there to see ; Arron Banks story pulled before ref , None of the big winners ( all remain parties) of local elections on Question time, but Farage was on. Show pulled with pro remainer as guest ( no excuses for this unless the BBC forgot election was on!!!) ....but Farage on over weekend. No hard questioning of Breixteers before or after the referendum on the lies told. The BBC has lost all credibility across the world now . I stopped believing anything that comes out of the BBC after discovering they censored Johnny Rotten in 1979 after he exposed Jimmy Savilles abuse of children and the BBC are complicit in that .... who in the BBC paid the price for allowing Savilles continuing abuse of children ??? BBC handling of Danny Bakers tweet is just another episode in the sad demise of a once quality broadcaster!
