thing is though. the term prince harry used is used mostly as a racist term. real racism, nazis kicking lumps out of an asian racism. i dunno but being called a limey by an oz doesn't even register on the racism meter to me.

when the scots highlanders went over the top in the first world war at the battle of loos british men said the germans were in for it now the jocks were bearing down on them. i dunno but if i was a scot and i read that in a book i'd kinda flush a bit with pride.

same with me if i read that people were saying the germans are going to get it now the limeys are bearing down on them

i'm just not so sure that Deeps' for instance would feel quite as flushed with pride if he read that the guys in the trenches were saying that the germans are going to get it now because the pakis were bearing down on them. not with the connotations that lie so heavily with that particular slang term.

anyway, i hope that me saying that didn't come as patronising or owt, it wasn't meant to x
