You can choose your friends Mysty, I've got to spend a week with my bullying Tory loving MIL soon where we will no doubt be told what we're doing wrong for the millionth time.

What's with all this "Holier than thou" stuff?

I was born in the middle of WW2. Son of Irish immigrants. Started my working life in Harlesden. A part of London favoured by West Indian immigrants in the 1950s. Today I live in France and have a Tamil daughter in law. I was fortunate to be born in an era when travel was affordable and much of the globe was open to visitors. I made use of the opportunity.

There seems to be an assumption that all of us born back in the 40s are inward looking and basically ignorant and intolerant. I resent that. When I was a young man I saw with my own eyes the ruined cities of post war Europe and still recall the chill when I was hitch hiking back from Munich and saw the road sign to Dachau.

Two of my sons have emigrated to the New World. They give an interesting perspective on the whole immigrant experience.

I like to think I am tolerant. But when I return to the Midland town where I raised my family and see veiled women walking the streets dressed in black from head to toe with just their eyes visible through a narrow slot in their head covering I am annoyed. To me this is a sign of rejection. In the UK there are significant numbers of people of Chinese descent. But they dress like everybody else and their body language does not give a message of rejecting our values.

Enough said methinks

I played football in one. Photos must exist of that event. I will enquire.

Possibly not, but there will be others waiting to be elected by the easily brainwashed sheeple.
Visit historic Barnard Castle. Lockdown day trips now available.
