The most senior Labour Party official in Britain was caught up in a bizarre racism row last night after he was accused of insulting people who speak with a Scottish accent.
A formal complaint of racism was made against Labour General Secretary Ray Collins when he asked for a ‘translation’ of comments made by a man from Glasgow.
It would appear that I am also racist, when watching Rab C Nesbitt I need to put on subtitles. The same would apply to some people watching Auf Wiedersehn Pet.
The Racism card is being played too often at the moment. What is racist about this?
Are people so sensitive about their regional accents. When I get through to a call centre in Mumbai and cannot understand the person on the line does that also make me a racist?
What next, state funded elocution lessons?
You couldn’t make it up.
