He’s no better than the scum who abused him then. 
 

It will be interesting to see what the daily mail

gammons make of it though. I’m sure they’ll be saying “why’s this being brought up now” same as when it came out that people had been using the term p**i 

Gammons?

 

Grow up mate

Yeah. He’s made an absolute twat of himself no doubt about it. A sorry saga all round really

I think what it does do is allow the possibility of redemption for everyone.  A fulsome and heartfelt apology should be enough for Vaughn, Bumble and Rafiq to get on with their professional lives.

Righto, though it seems its offensive to some but not to others, mind you I wouldn't call an Indian a Paki, asking for it as when a Sikh friend of mine got called one he went bonkers, he was an angry ant mind, sadly died 2 days ago of a heart attack at 49. 

 

Could it be possible he went bonkers because some Sikhs and some Pakistani's don't get on at all, rather than him being offended by the racist connotations of the word itself?

 

I obviously didn't know your mate so sorry if wrong and sorry for his passing.

Sorry to hear about your mate x 

To be honest I just see it as short for Pakistan but yes they can be racists like the time my brother in law, union man, had to represent a Sri Lankan  bus  driver as he was getting stick and being shunned at the workplace by the Indians who also sought his help and advice at times, I think it was something to with him  wing a Tamil or something, mad. 

Yeah 2nd one to go in a week, the grim reaper has been doing the rounds down here.

Possibly, like the sorry situation I mentioned above about the bus drivers, I can't remember the outcome, he was a tiny fella and I felt sorry for him.

I've known since I was a very young kid that the term "p**i" is derogatory. I don't care for the this thats and maybes, it is a racist term.

It does appear that its not offensive to some Pakistanis. I think when you add something before or after it is offensive so better to be cautious. Sorry to hear about your mate. Lost some younger friends here through covid.

Who knew cricket would be such a cesspit?

Well if it’s ok for Justin Trudeau then surely it’s ok for a cricketer.

"Just short for Pakistan"...

 

Leaving aside octogenarian recluses, if I heard of anyone in this country using that word I would know they were using it in a deliberately offensive manner. The term may have evolved from a shortened version of 'Pakistan' but it has long since evolved into a racist term.

Yes just short for Pakistan, I wonder who decided it was a racist term and when? 

Anyway I should of known better to comment and I'll stick to other threads where there's less lecturing on the rights and wrongs of it all, if it's alright for that crying cricketer you know when the cap fits and all that. 

Aussie twats.

I think when the national front started using the term “p**I bashing” when they used to go and kick the fuck out of anyone non white British is probably when it became offensive.

Yes, we don't like to be called a P*** because some of us don't get on with some Pakistanis.

 

Gnasher showing the same amount of forethought and intelligence on this thread as the EU one.

 

I'll tell my fellow Sikhs not to take it too seriously as we aren't all from Pakistan.

The point is that we now know that its being used in derogatory terms nowadays unless you live on the moon. The correct term is 'Pakistani.' An extra syllable or two but doesnt have those connotations.

I think you’re far too sensitive. There was nothing arrogant about what he said, in-fact he articulated the feeling around that word quite brilliantly.

It's inherently racist. Like the N-bomb, it's a word coined by racists, for racists. This "it's short for Pakistan, so it's not really racist" bullshit belongs in the bin with "well, the rappers use that word all the time".

He's a fucking first class prick, I've fought racism all my life and not going to have some silly little cunt throw labels on me without a retort. 

 

As for him being right wing I take it you were willing to turn a blind eye to his defence of billionaire factory bosses who subjected workers at two sisters poultry factorys to low pay and atrocious working conditions?

I'm going to challenge you (in a comradely way) on this.

 

I've no doubt you've gone toe-to-toe with Fascists, but fighting racism is much more than that. What do you do to fight the embedded, institutionalised, normalised racism that exists in every corner of this country?

    • With the exception of Bissouma and Lamptey, none of their players are that good. The players started the game came from Wigan, Bristol City, Leyton Orient, etc.
    • I hear they may have enough no confidence letters to trigger a no confidence vote. 
    • It's payback for the public apology he had to do for it. I don't think he could believe Johnson made him do it. 
    • Problem I have with our pursuit of the cheating bastards is this:   They are squeezing the life out of the game - literally suffocating it to death.   I can handle us not winning league and chasing a better team, but there has to be a glimmer of hope you can actually catch them, that other teams might beat them, that winning is hard for them too.....some sort of jeopardy.   There is literally none with them and it is soul destroying....even the mancs under demento would often lose 6 or 7 games a season and win titles with 'normal' pts totals in the low to mid 80's, even the odd one or two in the 70's.   We knew it was pretty much fucked when 97 pts was not enough to beat them - ok we went again and won it the next year with an even higher total - but it was always going to be extremely difficult/nigh on impossible to maintain that level season after season.   As the OP says "So we have literally gone toe-to-toe with this multi-billion petrodollar outfit who have cheated to get where they are (this isn’t an allegation, it’s been proven to be so in the courts)" and arguably our best ever team or certainly one of them (and we have had some great teams) and its not enough.....They can spend 100m on a player like Grealish, he be dead average and its no bother....   Rest of league so often just curls up in a ball against them and begs not to be hit too hard - teams often fail to register a shot on target v them (even a side as good as chelsea) or win a corner.   They are strangling the life out of the game....pretty much no competition.   The feeling that pretty much every droppes point is likely to kill you just becomes so draining - recent draws away at Chelsea and Tottenham (whilst being weakened by covid) are not bad results at all 'normally' but frankly they have pretty much ended our hopes (along with the leicester shit show, but that is it isn't - can't really afford any bad days up against these now)   They'll probably win next 5 leagues at a canter and every time a challenger comes along ala us from about 2018-2020, they just swat them away with their chequebook...
