Casual racism is still racism and racist my post was not!

You said in a post above you left around 10 years of age, have you experienced South Africa as an adult? As while it's a good country, it's political and legal systems are a joke, it takes a lot to get anything done and business wise it's unfriendly as hell with various quotas needing fulfilment!
Your post was a massive generalisation, saying that a 'drunk rapist who's still in power' epitomises a whole country. I'm not usually overly PC but knowing as many good, decent South Africans as I do I felt I should call you out on it.

Yes I have, the way the government bows down to China is despicable, but if I said that Hollande summed up all French people you'd have a word or two to say about it!

Been to South Africa, within one hour of arriving one of my friends had been smash and grabbed, apart from that it was a wonderful experience.

How many of you actually have all-British ancestors? :confused: Let us say parents and grandparents born and raised in Britain by British parents.

By the way, perhaps the whole African continent is the best place to get robbed so we don't even need to mention politics and justice which are a joke down there.

Not me . I'm Dutch, my parents are Dutch, my grandparents were Dutch, and going further back, I have some French ancestors. I also have some Belgian family members, and family members from Indonesia and the Netherlands Antilles.

One half of my heritage is entirely British and the other entirely Irish.

What circumstances brought you to South Africa, if I may ask?

Nice! We don't want any half-bloods or muggles in the Conservatives…

I'm 100% ethnically Chinese. I guess I'll just defect to the Liberals then.

Much better chance of making the football team. No, my Dad's an engineer and he had a project to do out there (He currently lives in Kuwait). Me, my brother & sister were young enough that it was feasible to go with him.

I suppose I'd better leave then considering my father is of Polish descent, with Russian and other mixes further back and my mother is English, Scottish, Polish and others going further back... I'm as mixed as you can get!

*broadly related* Have you ever seen a population pyramid for Kuwait/other Gulf countries? I'd imagine it would be fascinating to study the effect such a huge migrant worker population must be having upon the countries.

Eh, I wouldn't go that far. You guys do seem to be going a little leftwards, though I have faith you'll be the more pragmatic members in the government.

I think we've got a good balance - there's certainly some left-of-centre members like myself, but we do still have prominent former UKIPpers and Libertarians amongst our MPs. We are united, as you might expect, in our belief in liberty

I'm about as white as you can get. Before you get to vampires, that is. And yes, I fit your definition of British.
