Casual racism was given a big thumbs up this week when the British Prime Minister told the world the word that chanting “Yids” was fine and dandy for the white middle classes. “Provided you’re not too beastly about it , and stick to the less frightful epithets you should be fine” says Professor Richard Marx, Chair Musical Politics from University of Life “stick to being prejudiced against people who don’t look any different – Jews, Gypos and the like and you’ll be fine. Your table talk will remain the toast of dinner parties from Islington to Putney”.
The news was not welcomed by all commentators with both Richard Littlejohn and Jeremy Clarkson facing book sale slumps as the middle classes lose their guilt and no longer feel the urge to stop and take a careful look around before telling each other that while Poles make fine plumbers they undoubtedly all run brothels on the side…or maybe that’s the Albanians.
“What the fuck are you talking about?” screamed Cheryl Cole’s publicist when we eventually spoke to her through the toilet door of the Slug and Lettuce in Jarrow “Fuck off or we’ll sue, besides she can’t be racist…she married one”.
