    So why use the term 'brown skinned' in relation to immigration in Ireland, if it's the large amounts of immigrants you have the issue with?

    I certainly think the Eastern Europeans are a serious problem here, but they do come from the same general European religion and culture as we do. Also their genetic heritage is close to ours. For that reason, while they are a problem in excessive numbers - they are not as great a problem as brown skinned people in excessive numbers.

    Yes. Its a well know fact that I am a beer snob and only drink Ken {short for heineken). Other beers like hophouse 13 are too hoppy for me.

    Yet you have 'nothing against people with brown skin'.

    I see.

    I can't believe you have lived on the continent that long and you say such blasphemy.

    Or is it that the homegrown Ken is better than the export pish?

    Speaking of beers. Tesco do a fine Czech 500m bottle own brand beer for €1.39. Praga I think its called. I like to call it my everyday beer. Table beer, if you will.

    Indeed. Some of my best friends have brown skin. It's a question of numbers - not of the moral quality of the brown skinned people.

    My ilk? What are you on about. There was no malice in any of my comments. Sorry if you feel aggrieved at the fact that I think Heineken is a bland enough larger.

    Banter is not not your strong point Amster. You were the one who started talking about, 'foreign phiss'. Then all defensive about 'Ken'. Have a bit of craic, or don't. But don't berate me for calling your drink of choice píss when you call others the same.

    PS - I asked this as a serious question: 'Or is it that the homegrown Ken is better than the export pish?'

    This Amster isn't the one on P.ie, who's an arsehole.

    This one is someone having a laugh, so take his/her comments with a pinch of salt.

    I don't really care tbh. If it is not the P.ie Amster then it is pretending to be that Amster. Either way I have no interest in someone losing the cool because I said I didn't like a drink they drank. Especially considering their initial post had absolutely nothing to do with the thread.

    And Debenhams have a red haired woman shacking up with an African. They've been actively deleting people's comments below.
