Hi road sport I have read my post again and it’s what people read into the piece I put , so you are all putting your own thoughts which are possibly wrong cos I didn’t mean anything derogatory  in what I put , as I said some one put negro which I thought was a bit of ,, unless I read it wrong 

Derek 

I will keep,my mouth shut now so won’t upset anyone

Derek, you said "...he should have left her in USA , I think he was nocking of a lovely blonde​ so why he got hooked on a ,,,now.  ,,I better not say this or a mate of mine says I would get lynched ,so you will have to guess what I think she is...".

This really doesn't leave much room for misinterpretation.

You were clearly reluctant to use a particular word or description, for fear of being "lynched".

Nobody wants you to disappear from BC, but you need to be aware of how your comments may be interpreted.

For this very reason, when commenting or here or any faceless conversation medium, I always type, read and read again to ensure that my meaning is clear and not open misinterpretation or likely to offend. Like it or not, conversing on social media is not the same as having a natter down the pub with your mates.  More's the pity.

Still lots of support for the monarchy (surprisingly?) https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2018/05/18/who-are-monarchists

Sorry I disagree ,people who read my post come to there own conclusions of what I put ,maybe they are reading into it the wrong way ,,as my post as some Think was  racial ,, but it was not racial in any way or not meant to be one bit ,

What was it supposed to be? I read it again and again before posting. What was so bad that your friend thought you would be lynched for if you were to spell it out to us? (that was a poor word to use too in the context of your rant)

It wasn't a rant it was just a post in line with others,, what was the poor word I used ,??, poss my fault in a way the lynch piece was nothing to do with the post really just a private joke which did not seem to go down very well ,poss my fault for putting it in and confusing things ,,as no one would now what it was about ,,, but I say again get a life don’t take things to heart and to serious ,
