That 'Y` Word

That 'Y` Word

Right its official; don`t use the 'Y` word at White Hart Lane this Sunday.

If you do, you are likely to end up cuffed and down the nick being charged.

The Metropolitan Police won`t think twice about running your day with a spokesperson from the reference force being quoted as having remarked,

"Some words like the 'Y` word which, historically have been perceived by some as acceptable, cause harassment, alarm or distress to others."

"People who use this language could be committing a criminal offence."


In that case can we expect any opposition supporters who use the derogatory term - 'Pikey` - to describe us to be treated in a similar fashion?

I thought not!

Hi Rossy, friendly intruder..... We Spuds will also have the same punishment as opposition supporters. I wonder if that would happen if you used the Pikey word, IF it were banned too? Bloody PC gone mad, I don't think there's actually a law prohibiting it, so what is anybody going to be charged with? It's alright for foreigners to call us brits but we can't shorten there names (Pakitani etc) without falling foul of the law. Sticks and stones etc.... whatever happened to that?

Apologies, he followed me, we keep getting him on our threads too. I won't read and therefore don't respond to him. Sorry again you Hammers fans.
