Re: ENOCH POWELL WAS RIGHT

Folks, Daschund is clearly just trying to wind you up, but if you must respond to his meanderings, please don't quote them in their entirety in your reply, as it makes the thread even more unreadable than it might otherwise be.

Interesting that the article was written some 27 years ago. I wonder how the author would view political correctness now. It certainly hasn't gone away. If anything it has become more entrenched and become mainstream normality.

Re: Missing Thread

I can remove threads, and sometimes have. I'm pretty sure I didn't delete that one, though. If I had, that action would probably show up anyway in the log that AMod consulted. (At least, I think it would - not 100% certain about that). Like AMod says, there will probably be a new moderator/ass-kicke...

Re: hi i am back

From memory, Bill Bryson in his book "Mother Tongue" speculates that Yankees is derived from the Dutch "Jan Kees" meaning "John Cheese", apparently the name of a sort of stock character in Dutch culture. If correct, this would mean that the word Yankees dates back to the time of the Dutch colonies i...
