Woman fined for 'racist' English insult

A Welsh woman has been made to pay compensation for using a racist slur against an English woman after calling her "an English cow".

Elen Humphreys, 25, of Garndolbenmaen, near Porthmadog, pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment, after she branded Angela Payne, who had an affair with her father, an “English cow.”

The court in Prestatyn in North Wales heard that Humphreys levelled the insult at Ms Payne when she went to her house in Rhyl to collect some of her father's property and told her : "Leave well alone, you English cow".

For Angela Payne it was the final straw, said prosecutor James Neary, as Humphreys's mother had previously been warned by the police about her conduct. The court heard Humphreys had also called the victim other names previously.

Humphreys was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay Angela Payne £50 in compensation.

"Racism" is stretched too far as the Welsh and English are too closely intermixed to be distinguishable "races" that could insult each other. Yet another new law would have to be enacted about nationalities or specitically designated regions whose denizens must not insult each other, if indeed that is worth the taxpayers' money in police and court time!

Since when is English a race? Then again, what does it matter. Britain is dying. It's being killed by it's addiction to the most extreme form of political correctness. Good riddance to the pansy twits.

It reminds me of the (probably apocryphal) story of a Foreign Legionnaire who was disciplined for calling his fellow legionnaire a "dirty, stinking, German pig". It was all right, said his CO to call him a dirty, stinking pig, but "German" was verboten because there are no nationalities in the Legion.

The only RACE I am concerned about is NASCAR. Anyone got some sunscreen? My neck is getting a little red.
