    World at one

    Listened by accident – lady Brooke was having a chat with 2 wimmin about the future of the welfare state … all 3 were believers – all 3 on the same page – no dissent – no answer – no one saying ‘it’s all too much ‘. All 3 saying You Must Pay More ….

    God knows what the dependent – life long ‘customers ‘ of the welfare state – the new arrivals – the feckless – the over breeders – will do when there is no more money …. Because any spare cash is being spent paying the interest on the money trees …

      Hello Fed

      Maybe the way forward is for us Brits not to give to charities in Africa.

      But advertise on African TV to give to people back home – here in the UK as we slide into being a turd world country

        Hello Andy – I fear the English cities are already 3rd world – with liberals hiding in the remaining ‘nice’ ones – until the Albanian gangs arrive .

        The only charity I’d consider is my own – Dementia UK – the charity industry is otherwise self servicing with CEOs – advertising budgets – admin sucking on good people and their good will …

    Will the likes of the bBC run this for days and then never let white people forget they are racist


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      In some instances, rather than asking “Where are you from?”, a more appropriate question might “And where are you going back to?”.

      Immigration officials, Border Farce and RNLI staff take note.

        I find that the more I read of this sort of event, the more I avoid any interaction with other races. One innocent comment, and a woman’s career is over?
        I read frequently about the offences caused by cultural appropriation. Young white guys with dreadlocks etc. Not my thing, but live and let…
        The next time I see a black guy in a suit, I may tell him that I’m offended by him stealing my culture, and the next time I see him I expect him to be wearing a cloak, carrying a spear, and with a bone through his nose. Don’t steal my culture. By the way it’s missionary on the menu tonight, and I expect you to ride an elephant to work. No more of the “Mighty white mans magic which moves without horse” for you.


        • Greencoat says:

          The offending ‘Buckingham Palace aide’ is Prince William’s Godmother who is 83 years old. She was born in an age when, if you asked a straightforward question, you expected a straightfoward answer.


          • BRISSLES says:

            She also may have been hard of hearing, so repeated the question – which this woman has taken offence to in saying that she was repeatedly asked.

            But I’m with MicknotMike on this, I rarely meet people of non-white colour except on my visits to the hospital, so my interaction with them will be less not more, if I have to internalise every word before it comes out of my mouth. Even at the hospital I find that BAMEs lack the art of conversation anyway, they either don’t answer, don’t listen or treat you with disdain.

  6. vlad says:

    If you’re feeling masochistic, type BBC News into your mobile, and up will pop this story, front and centre:

    “Lady Susan Hussey quits over remarks to charity boss Ngozi Fulani”

    Yes, the BBC are in their happy place, sniffing out racism, or alleged racism, or a tiny amount of almost-racism in someone’s mind, maybe, sort of, perhaps.

    Like sniffer dogs with drugs or explosives, beeboids can smell 1 in a million particle of racism, not just in people’s deeds and words, but in their very souls.

    So never mind war, famine and pestilence, the really big story in BBC Land is that someone at the Palace asked a black person where she was from.

    Oh, the inhumanity.

    Of course, sometimes there’s no drugs or explosives in the bag: the dog’s just caught the scent of a mouldy old ham sandwich.


    PS. I, too, have a foreign sounding name, and people are always asking me where I’m from. Perhaps I should start suing for discrimination.


    • Guest Who says:

      This majority non white media created societal shift really is working out great.


    • Guest Who says:

      Ms. Fulani’s PR team has been hitting every ‘news’ outlet going.


      As a global traveler my accent has always been hard to assess. Luckily white socks and sandals usually prevented me needed to call BBC Pidgin.


    • Beltane says:

      Must admit I’d normally expect to agree with you vlad, but if you read the full exchange, Lady Susan Hussey can only be described as quite peculiarly stupid – not least because she so signally failed to recognise the grenade pin she was so keen to pull and with providing clowns like ‘Dr’ Mos Shola-Mogadishu.etc.etc with more grist to her inherently racist mill.


      • vlad says:


        1) Assuming the conversation really went as reported

        2) Lady Hussey is 83, so of a generation less aware.

        3) Have you seen what Ngozi Fulani was wearing? If you’re gonna look like you just stepped out of Africa, don’t be surprised to be asked from which country. You can’t have it both ways, looking all effnik and simultaneously claim to be all integrated and British.

        4) Then there’s the tone. Was Lady Hussey just making conversation and angling towards “Oh, you’re from X, what a delightful country. Is that dress from there?”

        5) But even given all that, is it really front page news, unless you’re race-baiting?

        6) How many times have i been introduced to someone with an unpronounceable name and wondered where they originated from, whatever the colour. Try saying Konstantynopolitańczykowianeczka.



        • Zelazek says:

          Vlad, Beltane

          Another point that might be worth making:

          Ngozi Fulani I think misinterpreted Lady Susan Hussey’s question, “Where do your people come from?”

          I suspect Fulani thought Lady Hussey was saying something derogatory like “you people” which as we all know has come to be regarded as a dismissive term especially in relation to race.

          But “your people” is an old upper class term meaning your family. Not much heard these days but someone as old as Lady Hussey would probably use it all the time. There is nothing offensive about it.

          I think this is a case of a newcomer to Britain (in spite of her claiming to be born here) not being au fait with the customs and figures of speech of the natives, especially those of a class she wouldn’t normally mix with. And seeing the interchange not just through her limited experience but probably through a persecution complex as well. She does sound incredibly touchy.

          I am appalled by the response of the Palace. Fulani should have been told to take a hike.

    Billionaire Sir Chris Hohn has just raked in a staggering £575 million in dividends – the biggest ever payout enjoyed by a UK individual. Now this wouldn’t be of note – Guido isn’t in the business of wealth-based grievance politics – were it not for Hohn’s extra-curricular antics. For Sir Chris is the biggest individual backer of Extinction Rebellion, bunging it an estimated £200,000. Road closures are all well and good when you can afford to avoid them…

    With £575 million, Sir Chris could contribute to a range of causes. He could plant millions of trees, cover the WHO’s malaria vaccine roll-out in 10 African countries or expand free school meal coverage to 1.1 million more children. Instead, he’s paying for oat-milk-drinking interpretative dancers to prance in Trafalgar Square and glue themselves to classical art. Hohn’s penchant for spending is less surprising considering the company he keeps. He used to be Rishi Sunak’s boss.

    “Why Nigel Farage is wrong about London being ‘minority white’ ”

    Who wrote that article ?


    • StewGreen says:

      Did he actually say “minority white”
      or “minority white British” ?


      • StewGreen says:

        Ah no he didn’t
        He tweeted about London, Manchester, Birmingham etc.
        becoming minority white
        Sajid Javid tweeted back
        “So what ?”

        Ah the BBC’s narrative is ‘ah people think that White’s are a minority but you have add in gypsy, Roma and other etc.
        ..and then it becomes just over 50% ‘

        Their graphic shows that
        It’s too big for this page


        • StewGreen says:

          See how Farage is right about Birmingham
          no matter if you include all other whites




          • StewGreen says:

            “The left say that if you’re in the minority you can’t be racist.
            Well I’m from Birmingham and apparently white is now a minority here
            so I can say what the heck I really want to say now”


          • JohnC says:

            And it’s obvious Nigel meant British white when he said ‘white’ because that’s what the figures directly show. It’s particularly obvious when you see that both Manchester and Birmingham dropped below 50% for the first time for this census.

            He then said these cities are seeing massive demographic changes. They have changed by about 10% to non-whites in one census – so he is absolutely right. The BBC ignore that bit.

            So everything he said is true if you correct his statement to mean ‘white British’ instead of just ‘white’.

            And as usual for BBC agenda items, we get something which is odd when you read it again:

            Nigel said : ‘The ONS now say in future they will not ask the nationality or birthplace of those taking part in this census’

            And the BBC/ONS ‘prove’ this is false with the statement: “These claims are simply not true. We published the latest country of birth statistics from the census earlier this month and our latest migration estimates last week.’

            Thats THIS census BBC/ONS, not ‘in future’. That ‘proof’ is a complete lie. And the following waffle contains no actual statement to the contrary whatsoever.

            The whole thing is now a masterclass in ‘lies, damn lies and statistics’.

              Thanks for explaining that, JC!

              I wasted about eight miniutes trying to decipher the beeboid’s little hissy fit about Nigel Farage’s comments being ‘wrong’, but gave up and assumed that they were inaccurate as usual.

              When junior autocue readers try writing gotchas, they never realise that there will always be someone much brighter than them who will point out where they went wrong!


            • Ian Rushlow says:

              Statements from the BBC:

              “Farage’s comments play into the hands of conspiracy theorists, who believe that indigenous White Britons are being replaced in something called The Great Replacement”.

              “Next on your BBC – we celebrate the fact that more than half the populations of London, Birmingham and Leicester are from ethnic minorities, in an exclusive discussion featuring an all-black audience”


        • Rob in Cheshire says:

          Why should it matter to Sajid Javed? What does he care about Britain? It’s just somewhere he happens to live. I wonder if he’s got a green card lined up like Rishi?

    “Prisoners could be held in police cells to cut overcrowding”
    About 400 police cells will be used to temporarily hold inmates after an “acute and sudden increase” in the prison population.

    Also, could this “acute and sudden increase” be due to the sudden increase in foreign criminals landing on our shores ?

    “Met Police launches abuse and corruption hotline”
    “An anonymous hotline will be set up for people to report Met Police officers and staff for corruption, abuse and other breaches of trust or power.”

    From the BBC newspaper for the record. BEGINS

    The BBC will redirect its television budget to make “lighter” dramas and comedies in the belief they will appeal to Britons from poorer backgrounds.

    The broadcaster also said it would try to attract viewers from lower socio-economic groups by making sports documentaries and crime shows, after criticism from Ofcom that these audiences are more likely to watch commercial outlets such as ITV.

    While the corporation remains highly valued and used by most Britons, the media regulator found the national broadcaster was struggling to reach people from younger and less privileged backgrounds who have “persistently felt underserved by the BBC”.

    This potentially undermines the universal licence fee model, where every household consuming any live television or iPlayer services pays £159 a year.

    The broadcaster has already brought back BBC Three as a live television channel, six years after making it online-only, in a bid to reach poorer viewers outside London aged 16-34. Ofcom praised BBC Three successes such as RuPaul’s Drag Race UK v the World, Conversations with Friends, and Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star as examples of shows that had done well with younger audiences – but said it was too early to decide whether the move had been worthwhile.

    The longrunning hospital drama Holby City was also axed in favour of reviving Rochdale-based school drama Waterloo Road, in an attempt to have more shows made in the north of England.

    The report said: “A particular issue we raise this year is that we have found audiences in lower socio-economic groups and disabled audiences continue to be less satisfied with the BBC. This has been the case for a number of years …

    “Those classified as falling within lower socio-economic groups, in particular those referred to as the D and E groups, represent almost a quarter of the UK population. These audiences consume less BBC content and have consistently rated the BBC lower than other audience groups.”

    As a result, the BBC said it was “commissioning more TV content aimed at C2DE audiences, particularly lighter drama, crime drama and comedy drama, as well as factual entertainment competition formats and sports documentaries”. It will also focus on sports via BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Sounds to reach these groups, alongside some targeted speech and music output on BBC Sounds.

    One structural problem the BBC faces is that while older listeners and viewers grew up with the corporation’s services and then stuck with the BBC throughout their life, the corporation is struggling to build the same deep bonds at a young age with modern audiences.

    Despite investing heavily in podcasts aimed at younger listeners, the number of BBC Sounds users aged 16-34 is flat at 570,000 a week – below the BBC’s target. The corporation said it would invest in sports content and other material in order to grow its audio reach among poorer audiences – a category that includes around a quarter of the population.

    Despite the long-term challenges, Ofcom said that overall the BBC continued to “perform well” and reached about eight in 10 British adults each week. It is also the UK’s primary source of news, reaching 73% of UK adults.

    Yet, its audience is smaller among children, potentially setting up further problems for the future. This is partly because while toddlers – and their parents – are big fans of CBeebies, the broadcaster is struggling to convince older kids to watch CBBC programmes rather than YouTube or TikTok. How to lure these audiences back in adulthood is a major concern for a corporation already struggling with a licence fee freeze.

    On Wednesday, Ofcom gave permission for the BBC to increase the amount of archive material on its iPlayer streaming service, lifting limits on how much vintage material could be available for streaming. At the moment, most programmes are available only for 12 months after their initial broadcast. However, viewers are unlikely to see a rapid increase in the amount of shows available as the corporation would be likely to have to pay ongoing licensing fees to programme makers to keep old shows available indefinitely.ENDS

    Excellent news – a policy aimed at alienating even more of the people who still pay for their BBC …

    The royals invited some coloured woman to a do at the palace – one of Mrs Windsors ‘ helpers made the mistake of trying to make small talk with the ethnic – asking her where she was from ? – ie family origin –

    The coloured girl took offence at this leading – I think – to resignations and inquiries and investigations and ‘calls for change ‘.
    Thickness of skin as well as colour of it added to No Class’…


    • G.W.F. says:

      Careful consideration should be given when handing out invitations to effnics of this kind. Out of respect for their feelings there should be a very strict limit on invitations. And if invited contact should be limited to a wave or handshake.

          Surely the real responsibility for the institutional racism of this old lady lays with her employer and he / she should resign ? The commonwealth should be abolished because by default it is institutionally racist .

          Since royalty cannot be trusted they should have body worn cameras to monitor their language.

          More seriously – who ever decides what sort of character gets invited to meet royalty needs to be a bit more careful about excluding chippy coloured folk – and ensure that there is minimal ‘small talk ‘ with coloured folk just gagging for the opportunity to chuck racs accusations about .
          But in the end – they invited this rubbish – so they can deal with the consequences ……

          BTW – this character is now disputing that the royals have been in contacf since the event …. I think they’ll stick her on the ‘honours ‘ list .

          Note to palace – if one of these coloured folk turns up in African fancy dress – avoid .

There was a shortage of staff as the nurses were attending a combined Pie Eating & Macarena Dancing Contest.

    She was 83 years old for for F’s sake!

    I really hate these new professional whiners who do seem to be overwhelmingly black.

      It’s just more proof there’s no such thing as ‘racism’. The usual shocked silence follows this comment followed by denial – of course there is what are you talking about?

      OK give me a definition of what it is – something everyone agrees on and covers all the bases.

      That’s when the floundering and the thrashing around starts as they desperately attempt to ratioinalise the irrational.

      Just try it for yourself to write a definition, even the Left haven’t managed to do it.

      I too am particularly disgusted by this story and it shows just how racist these black people actually are.

      If I asked a black person ‘where they are from in Africa’, I would mean their heritage and their ancestry – even if they were born in England. Same for an Asian.

      The conversation the BBC are gloating ‘as recounted by Ms Fulani’ show exactly that – but with an extra bit of confrontational stuff I am 100% sure ‘Ms Fulani’ has carefully added herself just to suggest racism.

      And just by chance, she happened to be sat across from ‘The Independent’ – a far-Left sheet – telling the whole story.

      And of course Lady Hussey cannot reply. They cannot lower themselves to this type of racist gutter press. She has quit to stop the BBC running the same thing every single day until the pressure of our racist press force her to. Just like they been doing a lot recently.

      How about a bit of examination of the affairs and history of ‘Ms Fulani’ BBC ?. Oh, I forgot. That would be racist.

      I detest these virtue-signalling, racist idiots and the completely lop-sided world they are trying to make.

    Top story. One of the Queen’s octogenarian ladies in waiting, after serving for 60 years, has had to resign because of perceived racism in asking a black woman about her heritage.

    Also in the news. It’s the MOBO awards. That stands for music of black origin. Apparently it is not racist to have a competition which excludes music of white origin.

    One is racist. One is not.
    It’s this sort of BBC behaviour that gives hypocrisy a bad name.

      Palace row raises awkward questions about race

      Charity founder Ngozi Fulani was one of about 300 guests invited to Buckingham Palace for a reception to support a campaign against domestic violence. And it was not long until an awkward private conversation, in which the black British charity boss was persistently asked about where she was “really” from, became public. Within hours of a social media post about Tuesday’s events, Lady Susan Hussey – a member of the Royal Household – apologised and resigned. Her godson Prince William, who is in the US to hand out the Earthshot Prize and is due to meet President Joe Biden, condemned the comments, saying “racism has no place in our society”. The rapid reaction of Buckingham Palace is a sign of how seriously the situation has been taken, our royal correspondent Sean Coughlan says, and it adds more urgency to the King’s efforts to modernise the institution he has taken over. Read Sean’s analysis here.

      Sean should get a life. Or wonder how a private conversation so often becomes public.

    Funny how our repressed minorities behave when they have the “whip hand” :

    The countries where being gay could get you killed: As World Cup hosts Qatar become focus of LGBT campaigners, we reveal where homosexuality is still illegal and even carries the death penalty:


    The continent of Africa is arguably the most repressive when it comes to gay rights. 

    Around 30 African countries currently have bans in place on homosexuality, with most applying stiff prison sentences or even capital punishment.

    In Somalia and Mauritania, those found guilty of sleeping with people of the same sex can be given the death sentence. 

    Meanwhile in Malawi, Gambia, Kenya, Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania, LGBTQ people face maximum jail terms ranging from 14 years to life imprisonment.

    There are some territories, including Namibia, Egypt and parts of Nigeria where the law is not clearly defined, but there are widespread reports of LGBTQ people being persecuted in these regions. 

    Asia and the Middle East

    Many nations in Asia and the Middle East subject LGBTQ people to harsh treatment.

    A startling total of seven countries can still technically impose the death penalty on homosexuals under Sharia law – Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen – though in several of these territories capital punishment for homosexuality has not been meted out.

    Iran, Yemen and Saudi Arabia however continue to execute people found to be homosexuals. 

    In Afghanistan, where gay men were stoned to death under the first Taliban regime from 1996 to 2001, the returning fundamentalists have again outlawed homosexual relations but have not specified how LGBTQ people would be punished. 

    Beyond the nations where capital punishment is a threat, Malaysia stands out as one of the most oppressive places as homosexuality carries a prison sentence of up to 20 years. 

    A decade-long sentence may await those convicted of homosexuality in Bangladesh, Brunei, Myanmar and Sri Lanka.

    Respiratory illness may take up half of NHS beds this winter


    “It said the modelling, which has not been published, was very much a worst-case scenario – even during the peak of the pandemic, Covid did not lead to such high levels of beds being occupied.”

    Because worst-case scenario covid modelling caused the wards to be emptied of the sick elderly – who were shoved into care homes?
    While Doctors and nurses uploaded TicTok dance routines from seemingly empty wards.

    “But NHS England chief executive Amanda Pritchard said it was important to be prepared.”

    Basic plan : another management layer, firefighters sent to fallen elderly, care homes used to reduce admissions.

      Therein lies the problem.
      Why didn’t she just say that she was English but her parents were from the Caribbean?
      Because she doesn’t consider herself English (I am assuming she was born in England).
      As Starkey would say – ‘British’ is only a legal term for export.
      If you were born in this country you should consider yourself either English, Scots, Welsh or Irish. None of these people of whatever ‘heritage’ consider themselves primarily to be the latter – their allegiances lie elsewhere.
      E.g. all those ‘British Pakistanis.’

    One for the birds edition
    And we ask: Does the left hand know what the other left hand is doing?

    Free ticket for all or nothing – nope, that’s not the free-at-the-point-of-access healthcare promise as gifted gratis to each and every new arrival in the country. But, appropriately enough, it is the slogan for the Health Lottery as advertised on the frontpage of the Daily Express.

    And what a lottery our NHS is:

    The BBC go with: Forty-hour ambulance waits as NHS delays worsen – so how exactly are we going to notice a one-day strike?

    That’s like asking what time is the next bus on Monday and being told it’s Wednesday.

    The Times acts as a voice of moderation on ambulance wait times – of sorts – unless you have a cardiac arrest that is: Heart attack patients waiting more than one hour for ambulance

    It was comedian Dave Gorman who had a shtick involving a power point presentation and the catchphrase “Let’s see what that has done to the graph?

    Imagine, if you will, on the ‘y’ axis our expectation of care (cradle to grave) from our NHS.

    On the ‘x’ axis now visualise one million new visas issued, half a million annual net immigration, with 40,000 and rising small boat irregular arrivals (meaning just those intercepted) so far this year alone – correct your projection for zero deportations to Rwanda (ah, Rwanda, the frontispiece of the government’s immigration control policy – such pie in the sky fantasy-like a policy they might as well claim they’ll send them all off to the mythical comic book movie Wakanda) add one for luck for Shamima Begum – because you and I know full well it’s only a matter of time and legal appeals – and now, to borrow the catchphrase – tell us what you think all that has done to the graph?

    While you’ve got that paper and pencil handy, the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper quotes Lisa Nandy: Seven in ten will own their own home after new state-backed mortgage guarantee – a prospective Labour house building and borrowing claim so absurd it truly rivals the Tory Rwanda pipe dream.

    In a fast changing world it’s reassuring to note the chronically coronaphobic ‘i’ newspaper is still alive and thriving: UK playing with fire after Covid jabs U-turn, warn scientists… Experts believe next major pandemic could be bird flu… amid fears of mutation

    I’ve suddenly had visions of something akin to that scene from the movie Alien – you know the one I mean with John Hurt on the table and the rest of the space ship crew gathered around.

    Except instead of the space horror monster bursting out of his chest, this time in my imagination it’s Christmas and the expectant editorial staff of the ‘i’ newspaper, wearing their Christmas cracker paper crowns (like the good republicans they are) gather anxiously around the table for their festive fresh from the oven turkey – guest of honour is of course regular columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown who takes up the carving knife… but just before tucking in… what bursts forth from within the sage and onion stuffing…? A tiny little John Hurt. What a frightening avian flew (sic) to human mutation!

    I hear they’ve rebranded the Monkey Pox. You know, like Opel Fruits became Starburst or Marathon bars mutated into Snickers.

    Anyway, we’ll have no snickering: Monkeypox to be renamed mpox to avoid stigma, says WHO… (Guardian) – says who, indeed.

    [The] Disease is found in various animals and it is inaccurate to associate global outbreak with Africa… Prof Paul Hunter of the University of East Anglia welcomed the move… – presumably he’s some top banana in his field – “It is however a shame that one of the driving forces for making this change now has been the ‘racist and stigmatising language’ used online. Hopefully such language will now stop.” (Guardian) – good luck with that, mate.

    The Daily Star takes pride in its masthead motto: Proud to love animals – never mind their continual repeated shock horror seagull attack reports stigmatising our feathered friends for cheep (sic) laughs.

    You can’t turn a tern into a pet.

    But if you really want to witness a dog with a bone – turn to the FT for their incessant anti-Brexit coverage: How two years of Brexit have taken their toll. Series begins page 3 – it’s the start of a series, no less!

    Tourists shun London for Europe after end to tax-free shopping, says Mulberry… VAT-free shopping was scrapped in the UK last year. However, it was temporarily reintroduced by shortlived chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng… before being scapped again by… Jeremy Hunt – Do make your mind up, FT. Are you all for high taxing Hunt or tax cutting Kwasi? Or could it be that as a globalist rag you just reflexively like the idea of cheaper luxury goods for foreign shoppers priced higher for the plebian locals? And any line that puts europe ahead of the UK must be cool, right?

    The Guardian frontpage today offers one of those awkward odd juxtapositions of two conflicting narratives behind the headlines that has one wondering whether the paper really has an editor or whether there’s a committee doing the job blind. The left hand not knowing what the other left hand is doing?

      Very good point about the 24 hour ambulance strike versus ambulance response times . So surely they should make it 48 hours so that victims might notice ?

      No doubt the MSM will be desperate to find someone killed by the delay in ambulances because of the strike – as opposed to regular delays now killing people every day ….

      … I recall those expensive NHS adverts for strokes and heart attacks encouraging people to ‘act quickly ‘ …. A bit out of time now …..

      … my most recent contact the the 999 system was a few years ago at around 0400 one day when I decided an elderly member of my family needed the hospital .

      I can still recall how long the 999 system took – how I was transferred to another ‘controller ‘ – how I was questioned in such away as to avoid sending medical help . I’d don’t an advanced first aid course ( which I paid for ) and knew there was a serious problem ….

      Any way – I eventually got proper medical help after 2 hours …. And a long day at hospital …..

      I guess it must be even worse now …..

      .. I think it’s Darwinism …. I just wish my private health cover ( very expensive ) also had an emergency ambulance response – should I ever need it . ……

    TOADY Watch #1 – much fussee over Hussey …..

    … and if you are Chinese and are offended by that, I apologise, tough! Actually speaking of Chinese origin people makes me think that all Lady Hussey was, was not intending to be racist, but interested in Ngozi Fulani and her background including where her ancestors were from. Because of my background I can make a decent stab, sometimes getting it wrong, at guessing from names, accents and skin colour where a person has originated from and, personally, I find it interesting to learn from people of other places and cultures.

    It was a Chinese origin friend who explained to me that it is not just whitee who can be racist. He was directly from Singapore although ethnically Chinese and he told me his future Malaysian parents-in-law did not approve of their daughter marrying a Singaporean Chinese although he was a lovely person. I think I have previously recounted here how a Trinidadian colleague used to make my ears come out on stalks and turn bright red with his personal opinions of Jamaicans in general. Inside I was horrified but externally tried not to show my embarrassment.

    Maybe Lady Hussey now wishes she had ignored Ngozi Fulani and left her standing there with her companions?

        Fed, my colleague had a brother who was in the Trinidad Police and may have had some ‘received wisdom’. 😉 In addition, he came to the UK as quite a young student and may have encountered Jamaicans living here in the UK, long before I got to know him.

        Trinidad had/has quite mix of races: Indians and Chinese as well as those of African origin and elsewhere from the Carib. If I recall correctly, the expression ‘coolie’ was first applied to the Chinese in Trinidad because they would work in the fields through the heat of the day.

    Earlier I suggested that Lady Hussey was stupid to use such a contentious line of questioning, but after a bit of reflection maybe it was almost inevitable, contrived even, since Fulani chose to dress like a tribal elder for her palace visit.

      An anecdote – i had a boss who was UK born but of Eastern European derivation – an east European surname . He was very touchy about it ( don’t know why ) – anyway – there was a formal social thing with big bosses . One of the big bosses didn’t like my boss – so during small talk he asked where he was from – and kept drilling to get the place in Eastern Europe his family came from ….
      My boss was a nasty piece of work – so I enjoyed the spectacle of his discomfort …. Funny what you remember ….
