yet more Political Correctness gone mad!

Some people get wound up over the smallest of things. 'Working like a black' is a saying that has been in use in Ireland for only god knows how long.

And so what if a FF senator glibly makes a remark that praises her election team for helping her secure the nomination as a candidate for the next general election, saying they had "worked like blacks".

It was not a racist slur as the Residents against Racism suggest. Us Irish have always used language in a colourful way and I pray it remains that way without fear of the PC brigade getting all uppity.

i remember playing a gig in cork years ago, was the Cork Rocks festival 1995 and we were headlining it, we were introduced to the stage as the "black bastards from the north"! so maybe she meant they worked like Protestants? lol
