I suppose the difference would be that he wouldn't have been shy about slapping manners into gobsh*tes.


Dermot O'Leary has often spoken about getting thumped on visits over here when he was younger.

Surely he got thumped everywhere?
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Probably, but him getting thumped anywhere else wouldn't be relevant to this page

Really? My experience is that racism, particularly casual racism, but often up to this level, is incredibly common in Ireland and certainly amongst the older generations. Racism in England tends to be, with the exception of the lunatic fringe who have become emboldened by certain political events, institutional rather than of this sort. We don't tend to have institutional racism as it was never necessary, although we have certainly played our part in it abroad. I think as a colonised nation ourselves we seem to think we have always been the victim; that's far from the case.
Over here it is far less likely a young lad would get any comment at all at a football club. It certainly wouldn't be as blunt. To paraphrase Stewart Lee on the changes in how racism is expressed over here; if political correctness has done anything for us, it has made the racism of the Tory party less overt.


Agree with all this. My other half isint Irish and took a long time to settle here, says friendliness here is widespread but superficial, making it difficult to make friends.she is frequently surprised at the amount of casual racism here too,interestingly I asked if it’s any one group of Irish that do it but she says no she’s worked with a wide range of people and it’s both country and city people she’s heard do it.my experience is in Britain it’s less openly done but it’s there too in the Brexit supporting lot.
