Some very funny stuff.

I think I was being a little more serious and putting it into historical perspective.

Thanks

Well I watched it, wasn't bad.

It did make a few good points about why the white british working class feel under fire and marginalised. I find in general most Muslims who have not grown up in the UK, and many that have, fail to get a grasp of the Class destinctions and social descrimination.

One of the points it glossed over was of course the affect on immigration of the 60s and 70s on the dreams and asperations of the working class. Just when it loked like we were going to start getting our fair share of the material spoils, because there were more jobs than people to do them, so wages would increase the government bought in workers from all over the Commonwealth and wages stayed low.

This I believe is one of the roots of Working Class Rascism.

We must remember that the vested interest that control the Media are not working class.

Peace

Indeed. Envy is often at the roots of many forms of discrimination.

Though discrimination is also irrational - witness the racism of some white working-class Brits to Asian workers, yet those same Brits' enjoyment of Asian curry.

I agree with you completely.

Racism has no rational basis or logic.

I agree with the curry thing as well, just an illustration of the stupidity of racism and its self contradictory nature.
