And plenty of other posters pulled you up on it too.
Here is the quote -

So yes, I know exactly what he's talking about because I have encountered some of the same. Problem?

You have actual conclusive evidence that it is the most racist place in the world? Sure you do.

So you've really got no evidence whatsoever to back up your claims other than eh racism.. how interesting.

This happened the other day, he avoids answering questions he doesn't like by asking one straight back.

He has no evidence, just more bullshit. It's embarrassing at this stage.

Did you even read the Human Values survey report I linked twice.

Amazing.

He put up an advert that said "NO IRISH".

Now you're sitting there telling me that's not racist.

Wow.

I think you'll find you did. Where is it written that Northern Ireland is the most racist place in the world?

And where have you got the information that this man moved half-way across the world purely to live out a fantasy to refuse Irish people work?

I've heard plenty of stories of people taking the big plunge for varying reasons, but this one seems pretty outlandish. And, as the Australian authorities have come down incredibly hard on him for his ad, surely it must be time to realise now that it has all been for nothing.

Suppose he will have to move on somewhere else now....

That has to be some kind of record.

Point is the exact same - guy had bad experience, doesn't want more of the same working for him. Fair enough, it's not right but it's his opinion and he hasn't formed it out of nowhere.

Still problem?

How does that equate to a man who was previously racist moving to Australia expressly to live out his supremist dream? 2+2 =/= 5. Laughable though.
