It really did nothing other than expose yourself Tim.

Was it you who called me out for using the term 'spastic' a while back?

Maybe it was someone else and no way am i gonna go find it, and it doesnt really matter anyway.

So, i used to use the term alot and someone called me on it. Went so far back they quoted gollywog using it.

And im pretty sure i went something like

" Yes, I said that. yes its derogatory, offensive and inappropriate and i apologise to those offended and wont use it again .....(+some poor attempt at humour)"

Then i never said it again using a keyboard or my mouth.

I dont why its so hard? I really dont.
As usual your incoherent ramblings are lost on me.

Sweet.

I take that as high praise indeed.

Ive got cows and weed to spray and govt subsidies to justify.

Au revoir

Do the Irish Protestants really wear orange today on St Patrick's Day?
Is that a riddle?
Went to NI early 2000s... the communal division that was still evident, the fortress like police stations, the armoured police car and shuttered shops in the centre of Derry, the painted cobblestone to signify Protestant area, the wall in Belfast Made me quite uneasy, Centuries of history, hard to see it being totally eliminated within a generation but hope it is heading in the right direction.

One thing that floored me was how compact the Bogside was And how impoverished it looked .... Wouldn't be bigger than the punt Rd, Lennox St, Swan St, Ricmond Terrace block.

At significant risk now because of the potential of the reintroduction of a hard border between ROI and NI due to Brexit.

Hasn't it been like this for decades? I've always heard it's their sign to detest Catholics on this day by wearing their flag colour.

Thought the West Coast video released yesterday with Bateman narrating was simple yet very powerful & thought provoking. Reckon it would give a lot of people pause to think. Hopefully leads to change.

This, on the friendship between a devout Muslim and a devout Christian, in Texas is most excellent.
