    Why are you trying to de-rail the thread? do you think that they are justified?

      I think if politicians tweet this rubbish they might want to consider leaving politics altogether and if they insist on spouting then do it at the golf club or the masons with their mates, out of earshot of normal folk.

Brighton and Hove Albion have taken 4 points off ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB. Let that sink in. Let that sink in. Let. That. Sink. In blud. F*cking Brighton. Pebbles and sticks of f*cking rock. Pebbles and sticks of rock, blud. That's what they're f*cking known for."

      I don't care for any politician but this is about what Islamophobia means. He certainly made a racist comment.

      If I made a comment about a Khashoggi Kebbab would I be classed as Saudiphobic?

      Think I’ll just class you as a knobhead and go to bed.

      A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation.[1] The phobia typically results in a rapid onset of fear and is present for more than six months.[1] The affected person goes to great lengths to avoid the situation or object, to a degree greater than the actual danger posed.

      Nah the definition is ambiguous and fluid.

      The Labour party has formally adopted a definition of Islamophobia, arguing that it is vital to tackling the rise of far-right racism.

      The definition reads: “Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness.”

      More than 750 British Muslim organisations, 80 academics and 50 MPs have backed the definition. https://www.theguardian.com/politics...n-islamophobia

      Mind you all of the above are accused of antisemitism ironically anyway.

      You can't even read and yet you respond. It's really quite sad. Like a beached whale desperately thrashing about on a beach, except there's no one willing to push you back into the sea. Because the whale is a ****.

      The point here is : Why does it matter?
      The original thread is a out the back-door reinstatement of some islamophobic/racist Tory councillors and you've turned it into an etymology discussion. Surely the original post by the OP is a more pressing topic of discussion that the dictionary-binfest that you've turned this thread into
