Does anybody remember Lenny Harper sacking that constable for saying 'porko' in the station canteen and then another copper complained about it. There was a big out cry about it at the time.
I vaguely remember that, but I think the difference between this case concerning Prince Harry and that one is that Harry was talking of a friend who accepted the fact he was nicknamed Paki. The guy wasn't offended by his given name, so why should anyone else take offence at it? As for the constable, he wasn't talking in terms of endearment concerning a friend, so what he said was considered offensive.
When my son was younger he couldn't say 'Portuguese' properly and so along with him I got into the habit of calling people from that country 'Pork and Cheeses'.
Don't say that now though.
