    Default Is it me ori is this Irish stereotyping of the Irish in Britain in this article in yesterday's Daily Telegraph?

    Home truths on race and colour put us in a spin at the launderette - Telegraph


    I don't really understand the point of the article - but do I discern ignorant, ginger haired, worn appearance (Punch magazine) in the launderette in his forties with his wife (i.e useless) and drunk?

    Hard to know what to think.....

    Good article.
    I would assume the Indian man owned the Launderette too.
    However,its bad manners to comment on people when they leave the room-disgusting habit.

    That article had such potential to be funny. Pity that potential wasn't fulfilled.

    Mr Archer mentions in his column about skin colour "Our generation can’t say, “Separate the whites from the coloureds”, even about laundry, without thinking of historical crimes."

    Now Mr Archer, British history is not your strong point, ignorance is bliss.

    What a clown, this is why the media is over, morons like Archer are just gossip, nothing else, he spends 5 minutes in a laundrette which he turns into a bitch fest.

    I could show you 20 examples a day of crazy incidents caused by bogus asylum shoppers in this town but it would not make the papers, it is just reality.

    no need to make a big deal anymore, it is just the way it is, you just have to laugh at politicians and media types, they are a joke,
