I think it has become necessary to use a wide variety of news

Presumably you no longer consider yourself a true Brit after
completely abandoning the UK for several years.

Do you now have a South African passport?


Define "true Brit".

Being a member of an ethnic or sexual minority is not a belief.
Your idiotic and bigoted ideas are, though.

So you supported the white minorities in Africa?

Care to define normal? If brown eyes are the most common does that make
those with green not normal?

Defining sexuality as normal or not would be fine if sex was only for
producing offspring. As some religious nutters would have you believe.

Omn my return in 1983, I realised the BBC was no different, just more
subtle at it.


Yes. Stick to the Express for your unbiased news.

* I idly look at the BBC news on
my phone. I read about the recent bad road accident in Birmingham. It
seems that "It is not known what caused the crash", and there are no
details about the 'men' in the car that crossed the central reservation
at 100mph and hit the other vehicle head on. However the innocent
victim
in that car is identified as a hard-working Asian with a large family.
Strange that yesterday's papers said that the car that caused the
accident was driven by an Asian drug baron who had recently been
released from prison following a 120mph chase. Funny how the BBC missed
that.

Comprehensive coverage on the BBC website.

Nope, being burnt to a crisp. Birmingham Fried Asian.

Apparently they get a fast track to heaven if they kill themselves in
the process of killing unbelievers. Even if they have not been
particularly devout in their religious observances during life, the
right kind of self-elimination can negate the effects of this neglect.
However, in this case the killing of unbelievers may not have been the
primary objective so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

Yes, Youtube is probably my favourite source of information on just
about everything now. However I am old and cynical and can make a
reasonable attempt to separate the interesting the valuable and the
true from the morass of utter garbage that accompanies it. Goodness
knows how the young manage to learn anything these days and to discern
which of it is worth knowing.

The dictionary defines normal-

[...]
3. Constituting or conforming to a type or standard; regular, usual,
typical; ordinary, conventional. Also, physically or mentally sound,
healthy. E19.
[...]
b. Heterosexual. E20.

(From the OED)

He never said it was.

He siad 'minoroty beliefs' and to those actually educated in this
country, that means 'beliefs belonging to a minority' e.g. that
'socialism can actually be made to work' etc. etc.


Your idiotic and bigoted ideas are, though.


How about the idiotic and bigoted ideas of Islamic minorities though?

At one time Christians became saints for similar reasons.


Christians from Constantine onwards have aimed to sin all their lives
before repenting just before dying, wiping out all their sins.
