Antares, I do understand your side of the arguement. But lets turn it around. I believe that you come from London. For all my life if a visitor to Norfolk was to behave in an unacceptable manner then the local retort would almost certainly be 'blo*dy Londoners', even if they came from another city! Today the comment might appear to refer to their aristocratic bearing as being 'king'. I suspect that most Londoners might find that offensive, and rightly so, even though it is in common usage amongst many country folk. For that reason, other than to illustrate this point, I wouldn't normally use the term as I have no wish to cause offence to my city friends, that is if I have any left now! I trust that you will not take offence, as non is intended, but will now see why I drew attention to the offence that your comment might cause.

By the way, for a Romany to call a mate a 'pikey' is fine, just that some are a mite miffed if outsiders, Gorgios, use it as a term of abuse.

Really, all I am saying is, since most of you would not use racist terms on a public forum, please be aware that 'pikey' is a racist term.  

Jenny Morgan,
Being the name of my boat and the generic name applied to the flag atop of a Norfolk Wherry mast, unique to Broadland. Now you know!

Absolutely no offence taken JM particularly as I know none was intended, but even if it were I am comfortable enough in myself to shrug it off. Although all my work life has been spent both travelling Internationally from Laos, Russia, Chile, USA, Canada, Iceland, Vietnam et al. London is my adopted home and I love the varied cultures I encounter all day every day. I was raised in a northern fishing town and in rural Lincolnshire and would not take offence at being called a "Yellowbelly" for that reason as, again I am comfortable with myself. I mention all this solely to illustrate that I am neither ignorant nor unappreciative of other cultures. Xenophobia, sexism, homophobia and racism are all inexcusable but neither should the accusation of such views be used as a method to stifle valid and reasoned debate on related matters. I still make no apology for the use of the word pikey but am deeply sorry and indeed saddened if it causes offence to those it was not aimed at.

Cat logic: I once saw a spider go under this mat, ergo there is always a spider under it so I will sit and watch it all day every day.

Phew,

Glad I was out tonight

And glad my boat wasnt one of those that got damaged.

Having said that the incidence of willfull boat damage around the broads is thankfully rare, as is  wanton vandelism, car damage and general low level crime (large towns excluded).


But at the end of the day isnt this exactly why, we who do bother to pay it, have insurence for.


Given time hopefully the current crop of reprobates, chavs, pikeys,carrot crunchers, swede bashers,toerags,scumbags,taffs,jocks ,micks and spiks(anyone else I havent insulted/offended?) will grow up just like the last generation of reprobates,chavs pikeys etc that operate in the Stalham area and become part of our "greater good " and join  the generation that abhors such acts.

Just like the generation before them did.

I wouldnt want to  moor my boat anywhere else and would not want to live anywhere else in the world apart from the UK and Broadland in particular.

Put it behind us folks.

It is an Isolated incident and hopefully the perputrators will be too busy doing community service or attending their councillors/lawyers to be bothered to do it again before they grow up and get a Job/life.

You mean the other Starboard then...

WELL SAID ROD

ANDY

PS.....IF I HAD TUNED IN HALF WAY THROUGH THIS DISCUSSION I WOULD NEEVR HAD GUESSED WE WERE ON THE SAME THREAD.

DON'T THINK I'LL BOTHER DOING THE NEAR 40 MILE ROUND TRIP TO POST ANT MORE PHOTOS, AS NO ONE SEEMS REALLY INTERESTED IN THE FIRE ANYMORE,

JUST SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE ALL GONE OFF TOPIC A TOUCH AND GOT INTO WHAT I CALL TAP ROOM TALK.

Your picks are much apreciated as is Poppys original post.

Living a good 3 hours drive away, (I'm a Tyke of Bog Trotter and Haggish Basher descent, living on a council estate), I would have been unaware of the fire if it had not been for the forum.

No we don't moor our boat at Richardsons, but are within spitting distence. (Would have said a stones throught but then I'd get the blame next time a window gets broken).

It is a shame that the thread wandered a little for Christs sake.  (There that's all the religiouse people offended).

By the way Rod, you forgot Dagos, Wops and Jungle Bunnies....

If this offends anyone, tough, the topic is supposed to be the fire.

Graeme

All right so what is the technical name, sharp end or pointy end?

Hi Graeme,

Yep You are right I did forget them didnt I and I suppose they are now offended by my lack of inclusion.

Anyway I am surprised you of all people would mention broken windows Tinhat Playful

You still havent updated us on the joys or otherwise of owning your own boat and what you have named her (pm if you like). I take it its yours I see in the new bit .

Cheers

Rod & Shirley

Just got off the plane from Spain.

Totally gob smacked about this fire.

Cant belive any  thing like that could have happened.

My heart goes out to Richardsons.
