That was legally very important information in the past.  Around here married women gained a separate legal existence around 100-150 years ago.  Before then her husband was in charge.

In many places, there was a time when a man was responsible for his wife's debts.  Not sure about Malta, it's been run by just about everybody over the last 1,000 years.

/ps..your marital status will still appear on any deed you execute in the U.S...to keep your spouse from selling marital property without your knowledge.

If you are an unmarried woman at 26, you evolve from a spinster into a thornback...which is far more awesome.

No, the report makes clear they directly surveyed twenty five thousand people across those countries, not relying on each countries figures. Their report talks again and again about 'respondants' to their questions.

iron de havilland: ??? The subject is racism. Farage is a massive racist, and he had a major platform in his LBC show.


Yet you responded to the EU survey results with "LOL Let me laugh harder". So why do you disagree with the EU report? You usually argue the EU is the sane, intelligent, competent organisation compared to the evil, stupid, hopeless British government, yet the moment they produce a report that disrupts your long held narrative the EU suddenly becomes stupid and laughable and we shouldn't listen to them?

Sounds like you are holding your opinions based on media headlines and personal bias over the facts given in a balanced survey. You have your opinions and no amount of facts or evidence is going to change that!
You are literally doing exactly what you disdain in others when you criticise people for relying on the Daily Mail for their facts. You are deliberately ignoring a report, from a body you have previously respected and trusted, and sticking your fingers in your ear crying "LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" because you'd rather stick with your "feeling" backed up with random isolated tabloid headlines.

If you had any actual argument or criticism of that report I might have respected that. But no, you just posted a "Wait, you're serious?" meme and quickly tried to change the subject.

And the new immigration rules he bought in make it easier for people from places like India, Pakistan, the West Indies etc to immigrate to the UK.

Mea culpa. I glanced at your profile and saw your Arizona location. But my point still stands. I didn't say "An American", I said "someone from America" which at the moment you are.

The big shocking police racism event in the news here right now is a couple of bobbies on the beat who asked a black couple in their car for ID. In the US the headline is still "White cop literally killed black man in cold blood".

Not claiming that is an accurate proportional representation of the situation, or that the UK is perfect, but for you to be in America right now and still criticise the UK for racism is still pretty rich. Even in your profile, which I have now looked at, you say "I'm an English expat currently living in Central Arizona.  The politics and people suck, but the amount of ineptitude you find makes for a nice pay cheque when you make your money fixing small businesses"

You are seriously living in the state that gave us Joe Arpaio yet picking on the UK for criticism?

What I said was that we have a classism and xenophobia problem, more than a racism problem, which is absolutely true.  As a society we're extremely distrustful of outsiders (especially in the villages where the closest thing to an outsider they deal with on a regular basis is the family whose "only" been there for 2-3 generations), and the classism is extremely well documented.  I also said that each of the three issues have some elements of the other two, which is also true.

That is the image, and while, again, not saying the UK is perfect my experience is that the US is just as bad. Classism? You saying that Ivy League snobbery isn't the same as Oxbridge? That people who live in the Hamptons don't look down on parvenus? We've seen endless articles on how New York society looks down on Donald Trump because his family money came from cheap housing. I think your "village" belief is based on watching Miss Marple episodes. I have friends who have moved from London to tiny villages, literally one pub, one post office places, and get on great with everyone.
Xenophobia? You mean the way we just elected a Prime Minister with a huge majority on a manifesto with making immigration easier for people from places like India, Pakistan, West Indies etc easier?

And the PM who married a half Indian woman and who has several quarter Indian children? The one who has made immigration easier for people in countries like India, Pakistan, West Indies etc?

And if there are racists in charge and still the UK has the least racism in western Europe that must mean that the British people are amazingly unracist! To have these racist leaders and still come out the least racist in western Europe? That's fantastic! Think how much better those figures would be if not for these "racist leaders"!

That is a huge testament to how open, tolerant and unracist the general British public is!

iron de havilland: Carter Pewterschmidt: Does it answer the question "What do you think of the EU report that says the UK is pretty much the least racist country in Western Europe?"?

It's a counterpoint to that, because racists are in positions of influence and power in this country.


And the really sad thing is that you won't even try to argue or justify your opinion. At least Murkanen actually put up a valid and reasonable argument. I respected that even though I disagreed, and replied with my reasoning.

But you?

Nothing but deflection and trying to change the subject. Only "Let me laugh even harder" memes and "FARAGE!" AND "BORIS!" comments.

"People in power"?

You mean people like the most senior ministers in government?


So farking what? "I've got a black friend" doesn't mean you can't be racist. Boris is racist based on the things he says and does.

And it's farking rich for you to be accusing anyone else of deflection.

Well I've posted a bunch of things Boris has done that are clearly not racist. Promoting minorities, making immigration easier, marrying one...

What has he done that is racist? He used the word picanninies in an article once. And likened Muslim women to letterboxes. In an article saying why the UK should not ban the hijab.

So judging by what he actually has said and done I'd say he's clearly not racist.

Says the guy desperately trying not to answer the question.

But then you do have form here. Refusing to admit you lied when you posted that Liz Truss video. Refusing to admit you were spectacularly wrong when you claimed the Tories had nothing to do with the NI peace process when in fact they started it and did most of the work. And who excuses SNP campaign lies by saying "They didn't lie. They just made promises that turned out to not be possible".

So, what do you think about the EU report that says the UK is pretty much the least racist country in Western Europe?
