Derek, your post was racist. You refuse to delete it which confirms a misunderstanding about what is and isn't a racist comment, there is no place on here for racist, bigoted or homophobic remarks.

Not written by me but by Brendan Cox, widower of the murdered MP Jo Cox.

Derek, it's got zero to do with Doug. Your posts are your responsibility. This is not just one person 'misunderstanding' and objecting to the tone of your post. Look at the comments from the many who have posted.

What on earth is the point of referencing a 'private' joke on a public forum which has absolutely no prospect of being understood by other folk?

Your refusal to delete the post or indeed clarify which term you would not use for fear being 'lynched' only goes to reinforce people's understanding of what was written.

Can I invoke the 1st rule of holes? Derek, the simple answer is to delete your post that has clearly upset some people, and stop digging.

Personally I don't think Derek's views are that unusual. It is what a number of the papers have been encouraging.

Derek in case you were not aware it is trivial to remove the content of a post. Just click the edit button at the bottom of your post and you can replace/remove the current content.

Is there any wonder that Prince Harry wants to get away from the UK when the Daily Mail prints this sort of rubbish:

Other coverage seems less toxic

If I New how I would delete the post seeing it has upset a few ,, but in one way that would say I was  putting on a racist post which I have said many times it wasn't racist or meant  to be  

the ref to Doug starting it was meant has  a lighthearted joke , it was not being serious

You cannot delete a post, but you can edit the text within the post and remove/correct anything you want.
