You'll probably have seen a storm about gammon of all things online today - but it's not *really* about the food...

Emma Little-Pengelly of the DUP (of course representing the bastions of political correctness xxx) seems to kicked off something about the insult "gammon", saying it is akin to being racially prejudiced... What does that mean you ask? It's a reference to the ruddy pink complexions of middle-aged men who go pink with anger ranting about Brexit and political correctness laugh.gif I suppose it's like the right calling the left a snowflake. As always, it is fine for them to call everyone anything but a comment about their pink cheeks is suddenly absolutely awful.

Of course being a white right wing middle aged men pink with anger doesn't carry the economic, social etc. disadvantages as JUST ABOUT EVERY OTHER group they want to marginalise does, so they are being ridiculous, but I thought this would be an interesting thread laugh.gif

And she seemed like the only half sensible person in the DUP :’)

Can't say that I think calling people you disagree with politically silly names is the best approach to rational discourse at this current moment in time, but then again that must be my annoying centrism kicking in again.
