Shane Barry, in the blog above this monkey, has taken a certain amount of umbrage at the Rough Guide’s suggestion that Ireland (Republic and North of) are amongst the “most backward places when it comes to racism [...]“.
This monkey can proudly reveal that in Northern Italy innovations previously unthought of are being hatched on a regular basis in the area of racism.
Post-Fascist party Alleanza Nazionale, in the form of a number of its elected mayors throughout Northern Italy, are stepping into the breach with hands buried deep into the communal coffers.
The police in a number of regions are strapped for cash, and are thus having difficulty escorting illegal aliens to the border (under the yet to be reasonably modified Bossi-Fini immigration laws).
The mayor of Padua, it would seem (from whence Portia did implore Shylock on the qualities of mercy…), with the approval of his party (AN) is stepping up to charter a plane, to get rid of these w.o.p’s
