Good.

As ever, intent behind it is a bit factor and there was clearly no malicious intent there but rather an oversight.

Maybe they didn’t look at a sweet little kid and automatically associate him with a simian because he happens to be black?

Yeah, you’re focusing on one issue - Islam.



Did you really just say that?

Whether they thought the kid looked like a monkey or not they would have known of the connotation it has with racists.

It's funny how his mum doesn't give a fuck though. Begs the question as to whether people can market themselves in a way that others thought would be offensive, like ethnic groups using slurs directed against them as promotion instead. Can his own mother not call him 'a cheeky monkey' as well?
 
Doesn't beat Japanese love for blackface though lol http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-42561815
 
Look at the tweets from Japanese people basically telling black people to fuck off about it, can't believe how insensitive they are really when they cry at the tiniest little possible slight let alone something considered full on racism

Looks like Carillion is gonna need bailing out in another great example of socialised risk, privatised profit.

What happened to the socialised risk and inevitable government bail out you were touting around?
 
It's been liquidated. Good.

And this will all happen at no cost to the taxpayer with no-one having profitted? 
 
Great news. 
 
Apart from the fact it is fantasy.


(ps.  "It looks like" is not equal to "I have concluded")

The correct course of action is happening in a free market. Failing companies go to the wall.

Congratulations, 100 internet points to you for pointing out that I was proved wrong when I said the binding phrase "It looks like"

I’d have let it slide if you hadn’t started hawking shit memes alongside fake news.

OMG Mistabishi was right. Before you know it it'll be "Her Royal Niggeryness". It's political correctness gone mad I tell thee.



Such incredible cretins.

UKIP is the least racist party you have ever interviewed, that much I can tell you.

Yeah I don't think the irony was lost on Guy Verhofstadt (who is great follow if you're on twitter)

I think he’s a knob. Like a watered down version of one of those troll Russian Embassy accounts. Not in this instance, just generally.

An obvious and small thing by today's political cuntery standards, but just seeing that has really fucking pissed me off.

Current polls are neck and neck and there is no way the Tories run a campaign/manifesto as bad as the last one.
 
This government limps on 5 years by which time Jez will be in his mid-70's and him and McDonnell can be put out to graze once and for all to lament the fall of the Soviet Union and attend vegan Cuba solidarity festivals.

Thought this quote from a source at one of Carillion's stablemates in the FT pretty much sums up the outsourcing industry:
 
“All we really do is pre-sell labour and make bets on the long term costs,”

Crimea wasn’t sovereign Russian territory and it wasn’t invaded by a hostile foreign power.

Strange comparison.
