That is an interesting story. A place where pretending to be foreign is a good idea... in your own country.

On the whole I am not surprised. This is a country that allows people to wear Jansport bags with impunity, it is no wonder we feel inclined to damage property. On the other hand I don't think this sort of, well xenophobia will have to do (damn you limited vocabulary), should be allowed to come in and kick holes in the wall. Quite frankly it is essentially the same as not allowing a ginga into a bar because they have red hair.

So, what do we think?

Im Großen und Ganzen diese Übersetzung ist schrecklich, aber wer bin ich dann dazu zu äußern? Alles, was ich getan habe ist stehlen die Worte von anderen Männern und nannte es akademische.

Ich komme aus Neuseeland.

New Zealand does seem boring, and people do crazy things when bored.


"It's just not worth it. It's my house, my business, and I can choose who I have here."
Errm... no. You can chose who you have in your house. Not your business. As soon as you turned your house into a business you forfeited your right to discriminate on who's allowed to enter.

He has not had trouble with other nationalities, he said, and does not consider himself racist because he is a Kiwi himself.
Not racist, not a twat... this guy considers himself a lot of things which he can't back up.

The one, the only... The chunter hunter... Great Yorkshire.

But is it still the same if you feel that there is legitimate cause for ejecting them?

Breaking your wall is a legitimate cause for ejection. Having the same accent as someone who once broke your wall isn't.

Pretty much this.
"The sovereign represents the state; he and his people form but one body, which can only be happy as far as united by concord. The prince is to a nation he governs, what a head is to a man; it is his duty to see, think and act for the whole community, that he may procure it every advantage of which it is capable."-Friedrich der Große

Sadly, for I love an argument, we agree. Also sadly, this is an unpopular topic.

It is possible to be racist toward oneself, it means one isn't a hypocrite. Something that this nutter is for allowing himself within the premises.
