    Coburn apologises for Abu Hamza gaff.

    UKIP MEP David Coburn apologises for Abu Hamza comment

    Scotland MEP David Coburn says he has apologised for comparing a Scottish government minister to a convicted terrorist.

    In a newspaper interview the UKIP member said: "Humza Yousaf, or as I call him, Abu Hamza".

    In a comment to BBC Scotland he said: "I've apologised profusely for it. It was a stupid thing to say. It was an inappropriate joke."

    Mr Yousaf has called for European officials to discipline the MEP.

    Farage must be going quietly mad over the number of gaff-prone people he has in his camp.

    I am sure that he knows that every time this happens he loses a few more thousand votes.

    What say you ?

    When Farage was pulled on the behaviour of this twit he just poo-pooed it and said that it was "only a joke"

    That is the great problem with racists, they do not know when their "jokes" are racist or not.

    If Farage wants to become a great leader he should have instantly sacked him from the party in order to make an example of him.

    Wow, that's a good word Papa. scratch

    As I see it, if anybody, like this twit Coburn, has a racist streak in them they are bound to give themselves away via the odd Freudian slip.

    Ahhhhh the "Freudien slip", what would we do without them ? Twisted Evil

    Just out of fun here is a website that I found recently that looks at the history of this man from way back.

    Find this curious site HERE




    I think that Farage really should look at this man again as he is doing UKIP more damage than they could ever get from the other parties.

    Anybody ?

    I personally don't think it was racist as he didn't express a hatred for him due to his race, or has the meaning of racism now been redefined?

    A good question Rider.

    I think that the word "Racist" has always been a very complex word with complex meanings.

    The politically correct types have widened this context to include any word or comment or behaviour that is even the slightest bit derogatory about colour or race.

    While I am not a PC-supporter per-se I do think that this definition should be a tight one so that anyone who is even slightly racist has to watch what they say and do along these lines.

    On this occasion I have to say that Coburn's words WERE Racist as all of these thoughts floating around in a racists brain can often generate the famous "Freudian-slip" that Angie talks about.
