This race card bollocks has destroyed our once great country. So very sad.

I’m at breaking point and might go under, I just don’t know if I can go on. I’m devastated and extremely traumatised - someone asked me where I was from!!!

Asking a person wearing African dress and a badge with an African name which part of Africa she was from, and then clumsily explaining that you are trying to ascertain where her heritage lies, is not a hanging offence. A slightly awkward conversation does not equate to prejudice.

I would argue that being asked "Where are you from?" is very, very rarely an attempt to suggest that one cannot be truly British because they are non-white. A question which is usually asked out of friendly curiosity is now being framed as a form of ethno-nationalist behaviour.
"The inference is you cannot possibly be British because you are black." Afua Hagan says Lady Susan Hussey's racism was 'so institutionalised we now have to explain why it was wrong'. @sarahhewsontv | @Afuathescot | @daisymcandrew

Angela Rayner boasting about Labour’s win in Chester. She forgot to mention that the previous Labour MP, Chris Matheson had to resign, due to a complaint of ‘serious sexual misconduct’! Both Party’s contain a large number of reprobates. Nothing to choose between them 😡

ALL of us, at least once in our lives (for some us, many times), have made conversational gaffes, intending no offence, but ending up saying something clumsy. But, apparently, if you're an elderly Lady in Waiting to the late #Queen, you're totally NOT allowed to make a gaffe.
What an ugly, manipulative, twisted thing #RaceBaiting is.

2 December 1913 | A Dutch Jewish woman, Selma Nieweg-Cohen, was born in Amsterdam. In November 1942 she was deported to #Auschwitz. She did not survive.

Shame on us for becoming a society that condemns and judges so mercilessly. Our dear Queen's most treasured lady in waiting, Lady Susan Hussey has been branded a racist by the court of social media. She's been publicly flogged and banished. Is this how true justice works now?

Had the Queen been still alive, Susan Hussey would not have lost her job. Both Charles and William are running scarred of the Sussex’s Netflix documentary.

So, is the lesson for white people not to have a conversation with a black person who you don’t know, in case you’re accused of racism? One little comment, taken the wrong way, but not meant to be offensive, and you’re toast.

Can we assume that the race baiter had eyes on a bigger prey, but settled with a lesser scalp.

My wife's family are Anglo-Indian. When we first met, I asked her where she was from. "Stoke Newington," she said. I said I meant where were her family from, like, originally. Where were her roots? "Oh, Calcutta," she said. I'm glad she didn't take offence.

I gather that the Chester result is the worst result since 1832. And Sunak said Boris Johnson was a problem? 😂😂😂😂

I can't believe people think its a good thing that if you say a simple thing such as ‘where are you from’ - you can lose your job, be dragged in the media and ruin your life even if your 83. This is why it's so horrid being a young person in today's world - the pressure.

If someone is wearing culturally significant clothing that is clearly from somewhere other than the place they are at that moment, is it wrong to ask that person where they are from?

I too am left traumatised and violated when asked where I’m really from, and am forced to confront the fact over and over again that the answer is Norwich.

The #ToryParty has disembowelled itself and amputated all four of its own limbs ... and now it's wondering why no one wants to vote for it. Which planet were you people on?

That by-election result is bad news for the Tories. And to think they got rid of Boris for being 5 points behind in the polls.
