I'll add another word:  Mimickers (of letter boxes).


This is because I agree with the comment from Boris that the women wearing Burqas with slits for their eyes look so extremely ridiculous. I find it offensive that they refuse to let people see their face.

I would refuse to deal with anyone like that on the basis that they are being offensive to me and treating me with contempt in refusing to behave normally.

My main issue with Islam is the way it encourages some advocates to live more in the Medieval world than modern Britain and the way this holds back integration between different ethnic groups. I also see the oppression of female Muslims as wholly disgusting and offensive to the extent that, whilst I dislike the militancy of contemporary (bonkers) feminism, I see this as an obvious area where women are being oppressed in a disgusting and offensive way.

Let's be honest, it's the way some choose to twist the religion to fit their ideology that's the issue.

You can't tar everyone with the same brush.

I've spent a fair chunk of time in various middle eastern countries and never had an issue with them....Well the War zones had a different flavour but Qatar, Dubai and Bahrain were great. As long as you showed some basic respect... as you should in a different country, it was great.

In all countries, colours and creeds you have good and bad eggs. You can say the same about our fine country. Too many idiots starting to appear who seem to like the far right, I guess they forget that their grandfathers fought to stop them taking over.... so is life, things always seem to come back around. 

People hating and killing each other is hardly a new thing, it won't ever stop.....
