Pre Brexit: East Europeans and gypsies

Post Brexit: Chinese and Indians / Pakistanis - the replacement cheap labour for the above.

Anti-leave Brits.

Any 'others' that tickle their xenophobic tickly bit.

Remainians

Themselves. It's self loathing.

HorseEasyEast - 14 Apr 2019 18:56:00 (#6 of 173)

People that don’t do things proper like.

Poles are Tommy's bodyguards. Some sort of skinhead nazi faction. He tried to hire local but no joy.

Swots. Teachers' pets. Speccy four-eyes.

It's a bit of a pointless question, isn't it? Every bigot has their preferred scapegoat groups, while others may get a free pass, or at least admit exceptions, generally because they have know some friends who are members of those groups,or theyor a mate has hooked up with one.

For people here, the preferred scapegoat group seems to be those who voted to leave.

Chorus of, "That's different!"

Tripos - 14 Apr 2019 19:30:03 (#11 of 173)

The darker ones most.

I have a gammon neighbour who refers to 'our Commonwealth friends'. For him it's an Empire thing - we're welcome there, but they're not welcome here.

solomongursky - 14 Apr 2019 19:34:37 (#13 of 173)

Muslims over Caribbeans 100% definite.

Tripos - 14 Apr 2019 19:35:13 (#14 of 173)

Nick Ferrari continually going on about east European immigrants (as he used to his breakfast show) was easily decoded.

RosyLovelady - 14 Apr 2019 19:43:58 (#15 of 173)

Romanians often come in for some very unpleasant and unjustified slagging off.

bossab2 - 14 Apr 2019 19:46:28 (#16 of 173)

I suspect anyone with a dark skin.

Eastern Europeans aren't noticable.

Delighted_User - 14 Apr 2019 19:47:09 (#17 of 173)

Perhaps that's why they get slagged off. "They're wearing camouflage, sneaky bastards."

FleurDuMal - 14 Apr 2019 19:50:23 (#18 of 173)

Eastern Europeans aren't noticable.

Until they have the temerity to start speaking forrin on the bus.

machiavelli - 14 Apr 2019 19:55:01 (#19 of 173)

Muslims?

Neither an ethnic group nor a nationality.

Islamophobia is a more recent phenomenon.
