The Race Relations Commission has criticised the wearing of 'Anyone but England' T-shirts by Scots football fans, calling it a racial issue. Since we're all British, I see it as being like Sunderland fans wearing T-shirts saying 'anyone but Newcastle' - i.e., simply naming traditional rivals. Would the RRC consider that one racist, too, or are they simply overstepping their regulatory powers, and putting their nose in where it's not wanted?

On a slightly different vein, the welsh are trying to ban the noodle mining adverts as they are saying they are racist. It shows the welsh to be slow, mining-types who sing a lot. The world has gone pc mad!
I'm not Welsh, but fair play to them. I see their point -why should they be the butt of many a joke when the media is oh-so-sensitive about not offending others? The Irish get a hard time too with little said about it. And all this coming from an Englishman!
