I would also be careful with throwing accusations of racism...

Sounds almost like a threat.....Besides, get off your high horse. I react very badly to threats to be completely honest with you. Don't know if you can appreciate that. Cheers.

If it is not racism, what would you call it? In my book, it is racism against Moslems and Jews. In the 70s and 80s most of it was aimed at the Irish and Jamaicans but but was before your time in UK.

“ I still have trouble trusting in all his promises"
Why? It's not like he's a politician or something.

PS, what's wrong in comparing someone to a letterbox if they look like a letterbox? What's wrong with letterboxes? What's wrong with comparing??

I think those were careless words. It's part of his Eton boy shtick. Hope he grew out of it.

Not really.
It's probably endemic. 
You are too young to know.

OTOH from all the leaders yesterday, Johnson was the only one speaking to the whole nation. Corbyn sounded like the voice of public sector employees and welfare recipients, Swinson fought for the Remainers and Sturgeon for Scottish nationalists.

Interesting that the BBC hasn't managed to find a single Scottish person who would be against independence. Didn't know that it has 100% support.

Person A: "No Scotsman would vote for independence."
Person B: "But my uncle Angus is a Scotsman and he  votes for independence
Person A: "But no true Scotsman  votes for independence"

Depends on who Persons A and B are, e,g, the Big Yin. Did you not see the double quotes?

So, are you blaming Eton??  Cheap one. Eton is a fine school.
You can also call it ethnic profiling or racial slurs. Of course, you need politicians with cojones and these are lacking.
