Thread Name: American Stupidity....
Subject: RE: American Stupidity....
well if you lived through the period of the miners strike, you would realise that the English media have virtually no understanding of anything that happens outside flippimg London.

everybody round here just clenched their fists in annoyance throughout every newscast as the London media failed to grasp even the the most rudimentary points every party in the discussion was trying to make.

I suspect that is, in some measure, what is at the bottom of the ugliness in tone of some posters from Northern Ireland - although why they feel more disenfrancised by the London toffocracy than the rest of us, beats me.

leave the yanks alone - most of the ones here are okay, and the tone of this thread is racist and offensive.
