Celebrity chef Clarissa Dickson Wright has caused outrage after claiming that visiting a Muslim area of Leicester was ‘the most frightening experience of her life’. Writing in her new book, Clarissa’s England, she said visiting the city--which has a large Asian population--made her feel like a ´pariah and an outcast in the middle of my own country.´ And when questioned on her description by a local newspaper, she fumed: ´I’m surprised any of the people who might object could read what I wrote as it is written in English.´[Snip] She describes coming off the ring road to

Comments:
Clarissa was born without the diplomatic gene, for which I am immensely grateful over all these years.

While I sympathize with her feelings her constant bashing of American food and American culture leaves me ambivalent.

Clarissa might do well to avoid that ´´Asian´´ curry.
A couple of cases of honor killed female humans ended up in it over the years.

I loved their show but was always somewhat leery of what they were cooking, especially pigeons. Jennifer smoked to the end and lived to be 70. I see nothing to take offense here. She described how she felt. Is that a crime now?

Sorry for screwing up the header. It doesn´t matter that much because the DM has changed it to:

´I felt like a pariah in my own country´: Two Fat Ladies chef in race row after saying visit to Muslim area of Leicester was ´most frightening experience of her life´

And it looks as if the Mail has screwed up the header this time, writing "her" instead of "my."

They had a great show. Witty banter and some good recipes that we are not familiar with here in the US.

The pigeons they talk about cooking are wood pigeons not the statue-pooping feathered rats that we have here in our cities.

Clarissa is not PC. A refreshing change from the usual mealy-mouthed apologists on the air.

Nice to see someone telling the truth for once.

The Brits are rapidly losing control of their own country, and pretty soon it is the native British who will be crammed into ghettos.

A recent stroll around the neighborhood of the British Museum reminded me of nothing so much as the pictures I have seen of Peshawar.

The Law Society’s decision to issue a practice note to solicitors who may be interested in drafting “Sharia-compliant” wills for their Muslim clients is shocking. [Snip] The idea of equality before the law is being dangerously undermined. In Britain, unless you draw up a will, your estate on death will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy. I accept that people can do whatever they want with their assets, and it has always been the case that a lawyer must follow the client’s instructions. But this guidance legitimises discrimination towards women, “illegitimate” and adopted children, and non-Muslim partners or

When journalists saw first lady Michelle Obama on Sunday during her visit to the Great Wall of China, the few photographers permitted to see the event were forbidden to shoot from an angle that would have produced an unfortunate photo, framing her and her family with a decades-old rock sculpture that reads ´loyal to Chairman Mao.´ Instead, photojournalists were forced to remain on a Wall tower between Mrs. Obama and the 1,300-foot-wide carving, making that photo impossible to take. ´Photographers and reporters covering the visit were sent ahead to Tower 15´ on the Wall, according to a pool report, ´and told they

Barack Obama swooped into the Crimea crisis today in a desperate bid to rescue the region from all-out war as advancing Russian troops strong-armed Ukraine to order its remaining soldiers home. Making a dramatic entrance, The U.S. President touched down in Amsterdam in a military helicopter, flanked by a squadron of battle-green gunships, to press Europe´s leaders to further punish Russia for annexing the peninsular, including the possible exclusion of Moscow from the G8 club of rich nations.

U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama kept up her charm offensive in China by visiting the site of the terracotta warriors--but briefly talked about politics calling on the Chinese government to open up the internet to all of its citizens. The First Lady, along with daughters Sasha 12, and Malia 15, watched a folk dance by local performers during her visit to the City Wall, in Xi´an, Shaanxi province and later joined in by dancing and skipping rope, much to the delight of her Chinese hosts. The family also came face-to-face with China’s terracotta warriors on Monday on a week-long tour of

Just weeks after publicly claiming that former first lady Hillary Clinton was waging a ´war on women´ by enabling her husband´s philandering ways, the aide who accused the former president of groping her in the White House has penned an article for a far-right-wing blog under the headline ´America Deserves Better Than the Clintons.´ [Snip] Now, with a potential presidential run by Hillary Clinton in the works, Willey has resurfaced to warn the American public about the ´dysfunctional´ former first family. The basis for much of Willey´s latest criticism of the Clintons stems from Hillary Clinton´s handling of the attack

Malaysia´s prime minister has announced that missing flight MH370 crashed in the southern Indian Ocean. Najib Razak said this was the conclusion of fresh analysis of satellite data tracking the flight. Malaysia Airlines had told the families of the 239 people on board, he said. Earlier the BBC saw a text message sent to families by the airline saying it had to be assumed "beyond reasonable doubt" that the plane was lost and there were no survivors. Flight MH370 disappeared after taking off on 8 March from Kuala Lumpur. [Snip] Based on new analysis, the UK´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch

Ten years ago it would have been a shocking to discover that an American company was spying on practically everyone in Britain. Now, it´s totally accepted as the norm. In return for free web-based services, we´ve sleepwalked into waiving our right to privacy.

Using a tool called Collusion, I was able to see how many companies were mining my data. In my case, 87 firms were keeping tabs on my every move. While the usual suspects---Facebook and Google--were

Venice has just voted to become an independent city state once again. Last week, an overwhelming majority of the two million or so people living in Venice and the surrounding region opted to break away from Italy. The online poll is not, however, legally binding. Despite the overwhelming support, Venetian independence is unlikely to happen just yet. But what should we make of this Venetian vote? Just another example of crazy Italian politics? Another daft turn from the country that gave us Silvio Berlusconi, then the Five Star Movement? The idea of an independent Venetian city state is not as

U.S. intelligence agencies hacked into the email servers of Chinese tech giant Huawei five years ago, around the time concerns were growing in Washington that the telecommunications equipment manufacturer was a threat to U.S. national security, two newspapers reported Saturday. The National Security Agency began targeting Huawei in early 2009 and quickly succeeded in gaining access to the company´s client lists and email archive, German weekly Der Spiegel reported, citing secret U.S. intelligence documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The New York Times also published a report Saturday about the documents.

In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency.

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
