Jim, no-one here could shrug off an accusation of "extremely vicious" racism.
If you would only keep the Mudcat rule against personal attacks, we would not keep getting in to these binds.
You justify calling me that on the ground that I reported an opinion proffered by one Leftwing senior statesman and a Leftwing former MP, and later endorsed by three eminent Pakistanis.

The opinion was widely reported in all the reputable media, and was crucial to the debate.
