|Rifleman (inactive)||BS: Plastic Paddy slur (174* d)||RE: BS: Plastic Paddy slur||20 Jun 09|
Richard Thompson is on record as saying, in response to a slur against him by Shane MacGowan (something to do with Thompson being a has-been and being overated), that the last thing the world needed was another stage Irishman, no one, at the time (this was when The Pogues were at their height, they opened for RT), said a word. I'm wondering IF some people simply want to offended by perceieved racial slurs? Just asking.
