I’d heard that the problem was we live in a “gammon” world.


Ironically the "gammons" are bigger snowflakes than the "snowflakes"

The Gammon is the natural enemy of the Snowflake.

The bald, reddy-pink, ruddy faced man screaming for Brexit at any cost, decrying political correctness at every turn because they can't refer to women as birds and homosexuals as poofs and unironically claiming everyone is too sensitive in this day and age with out realising that they are the most hyper-sensitive, easily offended people going.

Charles Dicken used “gammon” to describe Mr Gregsbury MP, a large, self-satisfied, middle aged man who professed extreme patriotism to disguise his essential selfishness and corruption in Nicholas Nickleby. Now used largely by SJW's (social justice warriors) to described various Tory nabobs.

Let's hope SW can avoid both snowflakes and gammon and simply be united as relatively diverse but united followers of GRFC and rugby...…..

Page 1 of this thread was fine, discussing the arrival of a young prop to try out for Glaws but the discussion of the thread topic didn't last for long … well there's a surprise ;) :roll:
