    I accepted the guy's apology that there was no racist intent in his tweet, but at the same he must have rocks in his head if he didn't notice this possible conflict before he pressed the ENTER key.

    A bit like the Crystal Palace goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessy, who seemingly was completely ignorant of Nazi Germany.

    I always thought he was an annoying little jerk.

    Lots of racist posts about that royal couple on the social media sites... some clumsily disguised as humour, some not. The morons have inherited the earth. :rolleyes:

    I have enjoyed Danny Baker over the years but he was incredibly naïve to post such a thing.

    I see nothing wrong with the photo that he posted, there was no hatred intended.

    What a vile, vindictive place the UK has turned into for anybody who does not toe the extremist PC line.

    He claims that he was completely unaware that Meghan had already given birth when he posted. Perhaps he should have been given the benefit of the doubt.

    I agree: you and I can see that from our vantage points outside the UK and it really isn't a good sight. Fortunately much of Europe is not preoccupied with political correctness and none, it seems, are as PC as the UK, with the possible exceptions of Denmark and Sweden.
