Its going to be an 'interesting' weekend.

Any bets on this forum lasting without being locked once again and posters being emptied by 23:59 Sunday night?

People need to stop responding to bait, it is obvious bait.

If posters used the ignore function correctly it would result in the trolls being invisible.

Interesting take from the Mail, notice that by being 'migrants' they are not regarded as people or individuals so their names aren't mentioned regardless that their pictures are. Its a way of dehumanising them, treat them as unpeople. Calling them criminals is assumption or slander, doesn't matter if they try to defend themselves and deny this because they have no rights anyway and its neither here nor there if they are or not, its an open goal for the far right. There is also the use of the word migrants, should it not be illegal immigrants, migrants also cover those who are successful in being allowed to stay here and start a new life. We are now reaching the point were migrants are bad, all migrants are bad.

What is striking about all this and any news article on Albanians is that there is nothing about the root cause of why Albanians decide to come here of all places, why would they leave their homeland and their loved ones?

I can only speak for myself, but there's certainly no seething at my end.

I see great value in keeping old languages/dialects such as Gaelic and Scots alive in places they've been historically spoken.

My mum's side of the family spoke Gaelic and I sometimes feel guilty that I've never made an effort to learn it!

I'm not responding to bait!

How dare you. 🙂

When I was a kid, I'd occasionally see roasters seething when shop workers would speak to each other in Hindi or Urdu. I presume this raging pish comes from the same place of, "they could be saying all sorts about me and I'd never know!"

Probably best to ensure they'll be slagging you off by having a hissy fit, eh.

I just bite my lip and resist the urge to reply. However, I must admit my lip is almost completely severed, so ignore might be on the horizon.

There are often people from one part of England who have no ability to understand somebody from somewhere else in England even if they are supposedly talking English.  Similarly Scotland or Wales.

Don't know what the issue is.

Lol at the thought of a 999 call handler being bamboozled by someone asking for the polieas or poilis.

Presumably the same made up person who has no idea what one one these vehicles is.

I remember patiently waiting in a shop in a shop in Peterhead for a couple of shop girls to finish chatting in Polish to each other so I could get served. Turned out they were talking Doric and one of them switched to standard Scots to help me out.

A shop in a shop!  Did they sell Russian dolls?

Can guarantee folk phone 999 and speak Scots every day of the week. That guy has basically wasted a lot of ink with his ramblings.

"We have someone on the line who wants to talk Polish or talk to somebody who is Polish or something like that.  Honestly I don't know what he is on about."

I've mentioned this before but I "translate" for my missus when we go up the road
