Gaming the System

Racist and Sexist

When the BNP set the bar low they set it fucking low. For those who are unaware, TV Chef Nigella Lawson “may” have been a victim of domestic violence. Domestic violence in a public place. He was photographed holding her by the throat at a restaurant. Honestly? It’s a cut and shut case. There is …
