Your post basically says "Somalia is home to terrorists, therefore it's likely he's a terrorist, and I'm vindicated because the media have confirmed he's a terrorist".

As far as I'm aware, the fact that he is Somali still has nothing to so with the fact he's being held under terrorism laws (but I am open to being shown otherwise). He could've been inspired by white supremacists for all I know.

I am not picking on you in particular Hunk, but this is the trope that the media play on all the time. Just because someone is from Somalia/Yemen/Afghanistan etc does not automatically make them a terrorist. I don't think it has any relevance at all.

It leads to widespread blanket fear and racism, and it's wrong.


Itís ok mate, I donít feel like you are picking on me. Just a conversation, nothing taken to heart. Iíll respond properly to your post in a bit when Iím not flirting with women at Buzz Bingo 😉

Iím going to have to puss out of this one. I have so much to say about your post but Iíve re-written and then deleted my response about ten times already. Iím very comfortable speaking about this kind of contentious issue face to face but a majillion billion times less so online where itís so easy to be misinterpreted, and I donít want to do myself an injustice. Thatís why I donít usually get involved, I guess the attention I was getting from the milfs at Buzz Bingo over-rode my better judgement. Weíll discuss this over a pint at some away day or other instead 😉

Or at least a basic grasp of it might be helpful.

My cousin Kerry in Australia from advanced and aggressive MND which was only diagnosed in the summer. Because of restrictions she was surrounded by her closest friends but her only daughter could only be present by a video link from Sydney. Fuck, that was quick, to quick. 😢
