Really Nay shock. That sounds awful.

Just reading the many comments to the articles. Thanks to you DrDance I actually looked to find something British and there are loads of comments, which shows how well-balanced and fair the British view on Germans actually seems to be smile.

What??????? What's going on Nay????? I'm a regular poster!!!!! Go and do YOUR research please.

And? Doesn't mean you aren't drumming up business because you've a vested interest.

It's the documentary version of that new David Walliams comedy Big School - lazy, flabby, been done before but a million times better.

If our government could only support small businesses instead of taxing them out of business. And support sahms.

If only hmm

Nay Don't know whta to say to you??? I truly am feeling bullied by you sad

KellyHopter Tue 20-Aug-13 01:31:07

Erk...

I think I saw that llast week, fascinating. The texts and rows did look fake though.

worldcitizen Tue 20-Aug-13 01:36:53

I just looked up what erk...could mean...I feel like going off my own thread, as this is getting ridiculous. Sorry sad

GoshAnneGorilla Tue 20-Aug-13 01:39:38

Nay - Bit confused with the "not trusting immigrants" bit. Why would immigrants be any less trustworthy then your average German?

I say that who lives in an area with lots of immigration and have never had issues.

Well that's nice for you GAG.

I speak as someone who's MIL has been mugged twice behind the main police station, by the people living next door to the police station, whom the police would not even to attempt to interview or let my MIL identify as they did not have interpretors. So the main problem there is inability to communicate. That and getting mugged.

Of course doesn't mean everyone speaking their language is criminal/violent.

Additionally Aussie family visiting Europe for nieces wedding cannot visit the Louvre. I am of course talking about the Romany Gypsy children mugging visitors.

You're saying Germans do this too are you?

KellyHopter Tue 20-Aug-13 01:50:30

Sorry world, I didn't mean to confuse you...erk was my slack jawed reaction to the mouthful you'd just received!

What I should've said was:

Give over nay, you sound unhinged.

KellyHopter Tue 20-Aug-13 01:51:42

Oh my god...are you saying that there are no German muggers??

Oh my god.. are you saying there are good and bad in all races? And it's too easy to stereotype and trot our RUBBISH????????????

KellyHopter Tue 20-Aug-13 01:53:39

Good grief! grin

NayFindus Tue 20-Aug-13 01:54:32

Slack jaws all round!!!! grin cake

"...I am of course talking about the Romany Gypsy children mugging visitors.

^ that's what I was asking you about nay.

worldcitizen Tue 20-Aug-13 01:55:30

Kelly thanks. I have reported this as there is something awful going on here. I am posting a normal question and anyone doing their research would see immediately what type of threads I am posting on.

I don't know what's wrong with you nayfinder Really don't know, but you surely have a talent for shit-stirring. Thanks for that angry
