....who's more PC? I always thought we had it pretty bad in the UK, we've just had 13 yrs of a socialist government who were obsessed with being politically correct, if anything was seen as a problem we'd get hundreds of laws costing millions which was as much use as t*ts on a fish. We had people employed to shove diversity, carbon neutralism, healthy living down our throats, all on the taxpayer, even before the global financial drama we were wasting more money than we made employing people to tell us how to live. But I still think your average Brit is unchanged, he still has a dark, none PC, sense of humour, and likes to drink and fight more than he should. Australia on the other hand, is there anything that's not banned in Oz? From just about every violent game to e-cigs and large parts of the internet, it seems like every other news article I read it's about something being banned, anything that looks fun. The Yanks on the other hand are a mixed bunch, on the one hand you have the right to say anything no matter what, for example the recent Koran burning thing. Here was a guy who is obviously out to cause trouble and should be stopped, but he can't be because his constitutional right says he can do whatever he likes ,which I admire . In the UK we had a bunch of ignorant chavs burn Korans and they were charged for inciting racial hatred. You can also own an automatic rifle and pistol which is banned in the UK, even a bolt action rifle is hard to get a licence for, I'm a former soldier and I can't get one. But like I said you're a mixed bunch , you are very emotional, what's with hetrosexual men hugging each other all the time and wearing your heart on your sleeve, no man should cry unless he has an accident with his fly(zipper). And what's all this 10 small bottles of beer a night and you need rehab business, not to mention all this African-American crap, are you African or American? Make your mind up, have you ever been to Africa? What's wrong with being black? As for the whole Irish American thing, I find it rather amusing that people who's family emigrated a century ago are still talking in pigeon Irish, wearing Celtic tops and having shamrocks tattooed on their arse. My mum's Irish, does that make me Irish? Helmet on waiting for incoming , btw rant was made in jest , by all means have a go back ,but keep it friendly please.
