Forced resignation type deal. Contract was almost up and told him they won’t renew it and asked him to step down early. According to LBC anyway.

Farage will not be a loss, don't like him or the way he conducts himself, but be careful as he will now probably claim martyr status for his views. Its like deplatforming him.........

There's definitely a putrid stench around now

Gammon, perhaps...?

In other news, racist Nazi bigot Fartage has lost his job. Oh dear, How sad, Never mind.

There should be no tit for tat, everyone I see posting agrees that racism needs stamping out. Different views how that's all.
Regards armchairs, I play in a CoD team over the winter's, have done for years. The last 3/4 years the racist rants and comments have spiraled upward. We just mute the other team once it starts. Americans are the worst to play against for it, unbelievably vile.
Out of the armchair I help with a Sunday league footy team my nephew manages. It's a great laugh most of the time. We had one mixed race kid of 17 last couple of season's, brilliant player stand's out head and shoulders above the rest. The hammer he gets from certain opposition is awful. We've had more red cards for fighting as the lads stand up for him than for anything else. He's moved up a few levels this winter to the paid ranks. Hope it's better for the kid in that environment.
In my upper tier Stretford End armchair I've heard very little racism for several years

i think this is a misunderstanding on both sides, you and me, you say about 200 and counted 100!. its like the pictures of the beaches from one angle in the media everyone was sitting on everyone else's towel for a front page grab you headline and in the local paper a picture from a drone showed everyone at least 2 metres from everyone.

You get idiots from all sides and the media love to hunt them down and portray them as a reflection of society, eg all black youths are in gangs and running county lines, all young white youths are left leaning encompass all races, middle England is all gammons, i could go on and on.

The media, public role models and politicians want to box everyone into their stereotypical bubbles as its easier to control and dominate. You are now seeing the erasure of history, the control of TV and films and next it will be literature and then rules put in place to make people comply to the narrative they want. Sound familiar Stalin, Mao and Hitler!

In relation to your last paragraph i am not trying to spin anything or condone anything. Both you and I were not there, but if you was I stand corrected, you are basing your opinion on 2nd hand writing and hearsay evidence.

I am not trying to justify or spin it, but thanks for stereotyping me as a part of the issue, you have assumed what I am and you are as bad as those abusing each other over race, sex or sexual orientation. You are now part of the issue!

And with that i am stepping back from this thread to leave all the armchair pundits to carry on the tit for tat slanging matches that this has become.......

They are removing a statue of Baden Powell in Bournemouth the founder of the Scout movement which has done so much good IMO.
Reason is he has been ACCUSED of racism, homophobia and support for Adolf Hitler.
Let's hope it's only temporary or If we carry on they'll be nothing left of our heritage

Think you misunderstood. The protest was happening and the group of white men, yes about 200 as there is a picture you can count at least 100 on, approached them. My point being the media can’t even call what they said racist without trying to downplay it. That is exactly what’s wrong with this country because millions of people will read that and now think it’s not really racist to tell people to “go back to Africa”
Ignoring the point of things is rife in British society, just pick out the bits you want to talk about and spin.

Large group of White men were racist AND sexist to Black women who were peacefully protesting BLM, Witt social distancing. Spin it whatever way you want that’s what happened. Trying to justify or excuse it simply means you’re part of the issue.

Mate don’t believe the media outlets they wouldn’t have a story if they didn’t embellish it. 200 people it was probably 50 with the odd comment. Yes these 50 are as bad as the people fighting over the weekend but to be honest why would a single BLM girl approach these people. It was probably race baiting by the journalists. I am not defending the 50 just pointing out what can happen. It’s probably me but the the more Older you get the more cynical or is it realist you get or a mixture of both!

This will now turn into a left versus right argument the thoughts and meanings of the initial peaceful protests will be lost and the emancipation, closing of old wounds and coming together for a better fairer society will be a sideline as the years old ideaologies will fight for control, whilst the numpties in parliament from all sides sit back and rub their hands in glee doing **** all and virtue signalling to appear to keep themselves relevant!

Throw in media racism or whatever you want to call it. Article in the mail yesterday about a peaceful BLM protest being targeted by 200 white men apparently ‘defending’ the town statue.
Shouting abuse such as “get your tits out”, “are you on your period” and most disgracefully “go back to Africa” at the majority female protestors. Do you know how the mail described it. They put racist in apostrophes!!! Racist is what it was. Using apostrophes implies it isn’t actually racist, I mean wtf?

You had racist people saying racist things and the media outlet told the masses that the racist statement wasn’t really racist. And there apparently isn’t systemic racism in the country? That’s gone through multiple people before being printed. Either they are racist themselves over at the mail or just plain stupid (probably this one!)
