“A shebeen (Irish: síbín) was originally an illicit bar or club where excisable alcoholic beverages were sold without a licence. The term has spread far from its origins in Ireland, to Scotland, Canada, the United States, England, Zimbabwe, the English-speaking Caribbean, Namibia, and South Africa.”

So definitely a honkey thing

Which spurred me check the origin of the word honkey…

“A derogatory insult towards white people it's a catch all term meaning rapist paedophile, murderer, thief & coward. Its origins comes from ye olde english for white rat (Ratus Honkus)”…

OMG I learn something new everyday

Those were the days for me.............I tell my kids about them & they're gobsmacked.

Some people tend to think racism in the UK is just whites v black & end of, those who do are living in cloud cuckoo land. Racism comes in many shapes, forms & names. Lets not forget the race card has been used over Eastern Europeans. Asian shopkeepers interviewed after the referendum openly said, "we don't want them here"............no shout of "racist" then.

Damn right Spurs - just try getting a job in the new South Africa.

Some years ago I read an article in an English newspaper about a white policeman in Cape Town giving a black kid a clip on the ear for stealing a hub cap – front page news.

On page 5 (?) there was a paragraph re Amin feeding some 20 people to his pet crocodiles.

So Black on White OK & Black on Black OK.

It’s a funny old world.

Re: Integration

I left Brum at the age of 16 & moved to Skeg, came back to live here when I was 18 with wife & child, she thought I had took her to India...............I kid you not. I still rib her about it now. The closest she had ever got to a "darkie" was at the fair ground with one of those machines where a black dummy tells your fortune. Our child was literally terrified when a Rasta friend visited us, dreadlocks down to his knees..............ya just couldn't make it up. "Fred locks" as he was known then became a bus driver & did it for 30 years, locks are gone now................ and he's just a "Fred"..................happy days.

Happy days for some but some as you know there are areas where integration hasn't succeeded and I've recently found myself visiting the Turkish MFA (for information on voting in London in April) and read this -

Unemployment rate among the Turkish community is above the host country’s average.



It strikes me as strange to read through their own findings on immigration but also begs the question, should the country of origin take more responsibility for the financial situation of its citizens when it comes to them relocating abroad?

Obviously they care about the spiritual well-being *according to the site* but surely then they should be held to some kind of economical accountability if reliant upon the new host country.

I'm talking a good few years back now, you could walk out of a job & start another one the next day, there was a housing shortage but nothing like we see now.
