Careful Mary1547, you'll be getting snide comments from the diehards who will say that your post was nowt to do with Nottingham . Personally, I found it interesting. My neighbours Josie and Brian used to live in South Africa and they had a couple of servants. They tell us about times when they lived there, until there was a lot of unrest and said it was no longer safe. They too never mentioned Nottingham once. They did always say please if the wanted a drink or something.

The BBC Nottingham web page $%#@*&#....  When you click on it it opens up and you can see the content, two seconds later the screen goes black and then it opens again showing content, two seconds later the screen goes blank again and a blue pop-up appears asking me if I want to subscribe. No I f***ing don't, how many times to I have to tell you. Get some intelligence behind your pathetic website and stop peeing me off.

I am close to junking this site from my favourites list as the content is almost next to useless. I can't remember the last time I looked at the BBC web page as it too is useless.

Don.

There are plenty of explanations on the internet if you look. I’ll give a couple but there are many that go into great detail.

I think you mean Paki and Limey, but to answer your question yes, it is a minority trying to impose what they consider an acceptable code of speech.  There is a deliberate effort to shift the meanings and connotations of words and replace them with innocuous and meaningless euphemisms. The problem is with the hard-of-thinking buying into and slavishly following such drivel.

They're trying to demonstrate just how clever they are and claim the moral high ground to support their own inflated ego.

Often think it is a pity the pc brigade haven't got something more important to gripe about than the way we have spoken for decades. They do more damage to their cause by pursuing the wrong agenda. No matter what they preach or do history cannot be changed.

Maybe a 'shoot and Miss' there Centaur...

 

As a child, I took alot of ridicule for having a large nose, it never bothered me. 

Years later, when exploring my family tree I realised that it was a family trate, 400 years my ancestors lived in roughly 7 square miles of East Bridgeford..

Much later I found Romans pillaged the Midlands, hence the feature. 

 

In my teenage years at college, girls sniggered at me, and also mocked my size 14 feet.

 

Even when I disrobed, on the the night of the loss of my virginity, I was still accused of having a massive conk..

Hi HSR,

I too have a large proboscis but have always thought of ample sized face furniture as an asset.

You have my respect and envy for your size 14 feet and if on the dark night of your "loss" you had carried a torch perhaps the point of interest would have changed.

Live long and prosper.

 

Hi Brew,

Yes you are correct. My wife suggested that a Jimmie was not a tangible item anyway, but rather an abridged colloquial term for a chain of opticians trading in Scotland.

Now situated to both the North and South of the border they ply their trade under the banner of C. U. Jimmie,  Opticians.

All the best.
