*shrug, so nothing.
Emma West - A gobshite who mouthed off on public transport. No way should she do time for it though.
I'd like to see Boris do time for it
At least the public transport rants in London have some kind of political content.
I've not bothered to read this thread until today because by the time I saw it, the video had been taken down. I got curious and found it, though. I also found this:
No doubt it's already been posted, so apologies, but I can be arsed wading through 55-odd pages to see if it has.
Woman held over racist bus rant
A woman has been arrested on suspicion of making racist comments after police examined footage of a woman on a bus.
The 34-year-old was arrested on Tuesday at an address in Hackney, east London, on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence, police said.
It comes after footage of a black woman in a distressed state proclaiming her African heritage and disparaging white people was uploaded to Youtube.
The Metropolitan Police said they were trying to determine when it was filmed.
A police spokesman said: "On Monday August 20 MPS officers began to assess footage of a woman that was brought to our attention.
"It shows a woman making comments on a bus. Officers are continuing to try and establish when and where the footage was taken."
Police said the woman had been taken to an east London police station.
That one is quite funny though. 'Shut up square head'.
The woman is clearly unwell. Perhaps we need a bus service that serves a transport based therapy service.
I'm not sure, but I think the BNP are paying for her legal support.
That may explain the poor quality as they are virtually bankrupt.
You lack a sense of humour, dude. You're also violently opposed to any mention of power relations as I recall.
You deliberately (or perhaps wilfully) misrepresent what I'm saying. Would you suggest that the presenters on Loose Women are 'sexist' because they bash men? Take your time and have a think about it.
Racism is nurtured by a combination of myths and pseudo-science. Emma West tells people "to go back to where the come from". That's revealing in itself. What myths sustain the black woman's alleged 'racism'?
I notice that you edited out the word "colloquialism". In the 1980s many people referred to Thatcher as a "fascist". Was this true? No, but it was used colloquially by some on the left to refer to the Tories and their policies.
Furthermore, if you think I'm condoning what this woman said, you are very much mistaken.
Finally, I'm not a liberal.
Nope. An "ism" is by implication is ideological.
That's what you tell us.
Sexism, fascism, liberalism, racism, conservatism. See the pattern?
The Rheumatic Party of England and Wales? It's a possibility.
Pugilism, astigmatism, anglicism, eroticism, metabolism, dwarfism... ?
Rheumatism at least has root that it stems from. But prism?
Where is the left on London public transport these days?
Knowing you, I expect you were taking me seriously.
Have you read the Daily Mail today? Apparently jizz is good for depression.
Beware, the jizz harvesters!
That right there is one of the reasons the mail is so good at getting traffic to its website. How many times is that link going to be circulated?
Your point about power relations misses the point that everyone, at the very least has the power to insult and abuse another and hurt their feelings.
But does it cure cancer?
Yes, but sadly it causes it too. They're still looking at its possible effect on house prices. Immigrant jizz is the worst.
They're too busy driving.
