Godders Bloom in "Paki" race row

UKIPwatch's favourite purveyor of casual racism, Godfrey Bloom, has again hit the headlines after treating Radio 2 listeners to his unique approach to race relations. Godders, who famously described the Archbishop of York, John Semtamu, as "as black as Newgate's knocker", told listeners that being called a "Paki" was no different to being called a "Brummie".
It's not a surprise to hear that Bloom thinks this, but the fact is they are not the same. Calling some a "Paki" is no different to calling someone a "nigger".

Maybe Godfrey should have a discussion with the Rev Arun Arora of St Mark's Church in Harrogate, the heart of his Yorkshire constituency who has penned this excellent piece in today's Yorkshire Post. Perhaps then this witless, offensive cretin would realise that using a term which dismisses any part of someone's personality and reduces them to their skin colour, is not funny or endearing, but poisonous, degrading and offensive.

Still, on a lighter note, we've found three great adjectives that sum up Godders nicely. Although he might attack the BNP's Andrew Brons extremist politics, Bloom's are no different. Poisonous, degrading and offensive.

Ok if you're so cleaver, what then is the abbreviated form of Pakistani?
