A minor disagreement

I fear that I have tweaked the tiger by the tail a little in the blogosphere! I’m a regular reader of To Miss With Love and a fascinating read it is as well.

It’s the regular rants of an inner city teacher. She’s probably what you’d called a moderate conservative, Edward Heath or Ken Clarke as opposed to Margaret Thatcher. I.e. in some things we agree and on many we disagree but nevertheless they are still views that I am able to respect.

Anyway take a look at the posts from her entitled Panorama and Damn White People and the comments that follow and you will see that perhaps I have managed to drive her (and some of her more interesting readers) round the bend this time! Ah the joy of the blogosphere!

Make of it what you will.

Anyway, tonight yours truly is off to Stamford Bridge to join one of my old house mate sin supporting his beloved Burnley against Chelsea in the Carling Cup. An interesting day awaits!

Putz, it happens sometimes. I prefer to stay calm and come back with reasoned arguments (with the occasional dash of satire thrown in!). Up and at 'em buddy, up and at 'em!

I used to read her blog regularly until her racism grew to be too much. I'm white and live in the U.S., and I am not a racist. Apparently we don't face the problems in middle America with race that she does in inner-city London schools, but - GAWD - could she give up her high and mighty sometime?
And I agree with Putz - if you don't fawn and drool over every word she writes you're written off as conservative, racist, BNP or some other acronym that means rich old white guy.

Anonymous, you're very welcome to drop in here and chew the fat any time and I promise not to call you racist (Unless you turn out to be a memberof the KKK of course!)

Welcome aboard!

I find the characters at Snuffy's blog a fascinating bunch, while I too find some of them a bet high and mighty I also enjoy taking a very calm approach to it all and questioning everything.

well, if I'm welcome, I'll probably be back. I really enjoy reading blogs that don't originate in the U.S.
Thank you for being so gracious.
