So what do you make of this then? I am no fan of Royalty but then this Baker chap is an idiot at the best of time.

Reminds me of the comment Half-Breeds which had to be deleted on this thread by a certain member of this community. Another idiot lurks here. See if you can guess who.

He's a very silly man if he thought he could do this without there being any repercussion.

As a believer in Evolution i wonder what impact this controversy will have on depictions of ape and man,satirical cartoons abound from the 19th century onwards with the Darwinian view being ridiculed ceaselessly in the press.

Never listened to the man but to state that "i did not know" from someone in the media all his life is pure ignorance or self serving flatulence,the Police rightly should investigate and act accordingly.

daz60 the Police rightly should investigate and act accordingly.

Possibly so but what exactly would they charge him with?

  daz60 10:29 12 May 2019

That it what an investigation is for,if found to have commited an offence of 'racist behaviour' or 'hate crime' ,which foorball fans have been charged with, then prosecute. His view is it was a comment on class and privilige in which case there are far better ways of expressing discontent.

citizens advice looking here it seems the Police have a broad view of what constitutes racist or hate crimes.

I'm probably naïve but I saw no racial context (or indeed humour) to the cartoon until I read the furore it caused.
