Shit-hole

Do you live in a shit-hole country?

Would you agree that your parents were born in a shit-hole country?

How would you react if, say, you were in a bar and someone accused you or your parents of being born in a shit-hole country?

Would you trade with a national leader who said that your country is a shit-hole?

Never mind diplomacy, could you resist punching some nasty racist if he said that your land of birth was a shit-hole?

What does it take to get rid of this utterly despicable 'president'?

I love the BBC. They have quoted the phrase, 'shit-hole' over and over again since dawn this morning. I love you, Auntie.

    Let's hope someone spills the beans

  3. I agree. Most of this government should have been sacked. He, Boris, is more embarrassing than Trump.

    1. You could not have picked anyone less suited to be Foreign Secretary.

  4. We have the shit hole country president. Makes us a shit hole, I guess.

  5. His mouth is a shit hole....because only shit comes out of it.

  6. I was trying to imagine any other President or Prime Minister using those words; I couldn't.

  7. Since when have you got so upset about someone calling a shit hole a shit hole? It doesn't sound like you at all.

    1. Don't be deliberately obtuse. There is a big difference between me calling somewhere a shit-hole and the President of the United States of America calling somewhere a shit-hole.

    2. I wasn't being deliberately obtuse. You are being so self-righteous and looking like a twat to me.

    3. In a way it is good to see you returning to your old self. We were all worried for you a few weeks ago.

  8. It all makes me glad I am not American - perhaps it is getting to the time when you can present him as a good argument against democracy. I never thought I would say such a thing.

    1. North Korea calls itself a Democratic Republic. Such descriptions are becoming meaningless.

  9. Whatever goes on in this crazy, crazy world, the Sun will still rise in the morning. As yet we cannot control that.

    1. And Trump believes we cannot control the climate too.

  10. My husband has had to work in places that we have described as shit holes, some have been in the Far and Middle East and two places that I remember were in the UK.

    1. I was born on the outskirts of a shit-hole and I have visited shit-holes on holiday, but I made a point of not letting the locals what I thought of their country.

  11. P regularly refers to having a day working in a right shit hole. It seems to be common parlance around these parts and nobody bats an eyelid. Britain is one big shit hole at the moment and I am not offended if somebody says it to me.

    1. Doesn't he empty shit-holes for a living? That was not meant to be an insult - just that he must know what he is talking about.

    2. I think you would feel differently if the president of the USA briefly visited your house and told everyone else in the world that it was a shit-hole.

    3. Bad premises are shitholes, nothing to do with the job he does, and bad people in them are called shithouse as in "he was a right shithouse". My house is not a shithole and nor am I a shithouse but there are plenty here in Britain that are. It's about time people stopped being so self-righteous and butter wouldn't melt in their mouths and face up to some real life facts.

    4. The Latvians around here wouldn't mind being told their country was a shithole. That's why they left it.

    5. We are forced to face up to them with Trump in office and Brexit a year away.

    6. That was a nasty thing to say. Just because you don't like a government it doesn't mean you call your own country or town a shit-hole - unless you come from Slough.

    7. That's where you are wrong. Too long with the culturatii of Bath. You could stand in a pub here next to a Latvian and say to him "your country's a bit of a shithole then is it mate, like, you know, that's why you came here?" and he would say "yeh, this is another shithole but at least everything's free".

      Delete
    8. When was the last time you stood next to a Latvian in a pub and told him his country was a shithole? You know nothing about what goes on here in Bath, and you certainly would not deign to go into any pub that I frequent. Too many foreigners for your tastes.

    9. Actually, I think you know nothing about your own area either, judging from what you say about it.

    10. You get it all wrong all the time.

    11. I think you may be Ursula in disguise.

    12. You are the most hurtful horrible person I have ever had the misfortune to meet on a blog who isn't a troll. We have idle banter all the time here wherever people come from. My favourite manager at the Council was Romanian. We had a laugh about the shithole of Bucharest frequently. It would do you good to watch something other than Harry Potter films and BBC News bulletins. Might broaden your knowledge a bit.

    13. You are being very unfair to me. I am one of many blog friends who supported you when P left you, and now - for some reason - you have reverted back to your old alter ego who wallows in self pity and obsession whilst drinking too much. I recognise this because I drink too much as well and have made the mistake of posting blogs having done so. I am the same person I always have been, so I don't know how you can like me one minute and hate me the next. Think about it, but not too deeply. Get some sleep.

    14. Yes, I take your point. Not much I can say really without looking more of an idiot and I hate reading sorry comments, the sort that say "I would like to say, [insert name] how much I enjoy your blog and I was completely out of order and I wish you well" because it just isn't me and I wouldn't mean it anyway. So suffice to say I haven't forgotten your kindnesses over the past four months and a few before that. I deleted the blog permanently in the night so if I come back it will have to be under another name. I don't think I belong here at the moment so will stay away. x

  12. The biggest shithole in America is Trump’s mouth. He is an evil and dangerous asshole. He wasn’t really talking about the countries, but the color of the people in them.

    1. Exactly. At least here in Britain we are completely indiscriminate about who we are prejudiced against. We hate all foreigners coming here and cleaning out our shit-holes for the minimum wage.
