The idiot in the first article is obviously a throwback to an earlier generation, when Lords and Ladies could say what they like. A complete moron.

The second article isn't as serious, imo, as I don't believe the comment was used in a racist manner, and many of the black community use this term all the time, (I heard it used on TV the other day, by a black man). It seems odd to me that the black community can 'reserve' a phrase for their own use, and get upset when others use it, (is this some form of inverted racialism ?) As for the MP, it calls into question her understanding of the modern world, as well as her decision making. I think she's in the wrong job.

Pretty much agree with you glos and glad to see the idiot was found guilty. I hope he gets a custodial sentence but will be surprised if he does.

As for the use of the n word I also think too much fuss is made about it. Yes it is a racist word but I don't really believe it's use is quite as harmful as some claim (but then I am white of course). However to use it in the way she did shows just how out of touch she is.

I agree. I don't like the use of the N word and I can understand why so many people find it offensive especially with its slavery connotations.
However, if it is so deeply offensive why do black people still use the word so frequently? They always seem to use it in films. Agatha Christie had her novel changed to Ten Little Indians because of the N word. It's as if the word is okay to use if you are black and to me that is wrong.

Totally agree

Black people use the word 'nigga', as opposed to 'nigger',which is a derogatory term.

The difference is subtle,but very real.

And now an example of inverted logic:
