    I have been pondering on a couple of things, as I have been rather idle the last few days and admittedly fueled by copious amounts of red wine.

    Feel free to comment and tell me if I am right or wrong.

    I am white caucasian.

    Authomatically it makes me a racist.........

    I don't vote "left"...

    Authomatically I am a Fascist

    I am eterosexual......

    So authomatically I am Omophobe

    I was born a Christian..

    Then I am an Infidel by default

    I treasure my identity and heritage.

    It would classify me as a xenophobe....

    I would love to see all criminals in jail and the death penalty for child related sex and murder crimes

    That makes me a populist..........

    Life is getting more difficult

    But you've not confessed to your most serious crime: that of not being an ardent supporter of the European Union. That classifies you as one of this country's uneducated little people who should never be allowed near a polling station.

    People will always judge you for something one way or another.
    When you always care what they think, you won't be able to live the life that you want.

    Sometimes you have to not give a ****.

    You like to drink.

    You are a drunkard...

    I think you are born Christian if you are born into a family that practices the religion, when you are born into a religion there is no way of escaping it until you get older at least :)

    If your other thread regarding the Queen supporting Brexit is correct I wonder how she will be viewed by the Re-moaners? :)

    Like you I perhaps have had a bit of time to ponder Ive concluded
    No one is born a racist
    nor evil
    nor good
    nor a bigot
    nor charitable
    nor a christian

    I get your point about this. It seems that we are all being labelled in some effort to pigeonhole us. There is only black and white nowadays. No shades of grey. And no attempt to understand by those who are not the same - no tolerance, no live-and-let-live. Or precious little.

    Not only that, but those who ARE the same seem to want to fight a crusade, battling to the bitter end in order to force everyone to think the same way.

    Me? I didn't think the EU's faults outweighed the benefits of membership, but agree that reform was long overdue. I think that Britain's natural trading partners are in Europe and that greater integration between European people is better than isolationism.

    Of course, immigration left unchecked is ridiculous, and I think the EU expansionism has been its downfall. The Balkan states should never be allowed entry, Turkey neither, and the admission of the eastern European countries of Romania and Bulgaria has been detrimental, with little or no benefit to the EU.

    I think the Euro is a failed experiment that has caused grave and unnecessary strain on the peoples of southern Europe and crippled the economies of the PIGS nations. I believe that borderless states are a mistake, and a European Army unworkable. But I still believe in a united Europe, just not as it has been tried so far. And I believe that a good percentage of the people who voted for Brexit were never made aware that Britain was better placed than many other European nations to effect the change that would benefit Britain most.

    However, democracy being what it is, although I live in Europe, I would wish that anyone who voted, whether Brexiter or Bremainer will forget these two ridiculous terms for one another and pull together to improve their own little patch of Britain.

    But having stated all that, I assume that some people will wish to put a label on me too.

    One member here once expressed that I was not only a racist but a "white supremacist" !!
    He did apologize a couple of months later but to be honest,the damage was already done.
    This thread is a time bomb.
    Its only a matter of time.
