You are the fools who are responsible for Blair and his
propensity for giving rim jobs and felching Bush at every
opportunity and you have the cheek to try and insult us?
Life has insulted you already by having you born as soap dodgers.
I've got to laugh at these type of Commonwealth belonging, English speaking,
British christian named and probably surnamed twats. I don't know why you
don't deal with your anger and stop taking it out on us with these all too
common diatribes. It's not our fault you can't leave the apron strings of
the mother country alone. You'll never grow up as a country until you stop
all this envy.
I must admit that I just don't get it with Kiwis because, AFAIK (and I
know sod all about NZ history) the Brits never did anything bad to NZ
and yet there seem to be more anti-Brit Kiwis than anything else. OK,
a lot of guys died in the WWs but their countries sent them and I'm
sure there was still a sense for most of them - however misguided - of
being part of the Empire. The Aussies I can understand because we let
them down in the War but with hindsight only good has come out of that
- I doubt they would be so strong now if they had continued to face
towards GB instead of Asia and America.
My God, if there's a country on earth that you could understand being
hateful towards Britain it's India. Leaving aside the deaths and
problems created by the Empire, 1m people died as a result of a hasty,
bungled introduction of independence. Yet I work with Indians and
have some good Indian friends all of whom - though being mostly too
young to have experienced even the aftermath of independence - hold no
grudge. I have even walked alone in Indian cities without a single
person attempting to harm me. Astonishing? No, they know we're in
the 21st Century. Unfortunately, so many minds of their poor
downtrodden white brethren remain firmly in the 19th Century.
I feel sorry for anyone with prejudice against other humans. I've
seen prejudice, have been the object of it, and it's not nice. The
effect on the individual harbouring the prejudice is usually far
greater than on the object of their obsession - witness the
outpourings of pure hate we see here from time to time purely on the
basis of winning or losing a game of rugby fer chrissakes.
All the New Zealanders I've met have been honest to goodness people
but to read some of them you'd easily be convinced that they are a
nation of slathering psycopaths who spend their time trying to find
Brits to stomp because of some imagined hurt far back in the mists of
