Do you think this Guernsey politicion and his golly wog gag is racist?

I do. The joke was very much at Obama's expense and hinged around the fact that he is of black origin, and nothing else.

This is far different to the Prince Harry story. using such a word that has a bad connetation is definately unwise, but doesn't instantly make you a racist. That would depend on the context in which it is used.

It was a thick thing to say.

It was just on the news that Prince Charles calls a black friend 'Sooty'.

The guys name is Kolin Dhillon.  Pronounced 'coal-in'.  I'd imagine that's where his nickname came from.

Was giving some thought to Harry the lad whom is a popular young chap, with whom many can identify. At least he has got his hands dirty, but like it or not he is still a working chap with long holidays and trips abroad, but has decided he is at a crossroads.

Michael Thornton for the mail, puts it all in interesting context, part of the article:

But Harry is now over 30, which seems rather long in the tooth to be taking what amounts to a 'gap year', something which he first did at the age of 18, and which most young people do while they are still students.

As the Queen's grandson, his life and activities are supplemented by taxpayers' money from the Queen's Sovereign Grant, which replaced the Civil List when it was abolished. He is also heavily subsidised by money from his father's £19million Duchy of Cornwall revenues.

There is also the huge cost of police protection for the wayward Prince. He has been rumoured to have six SAS minders, and one of his royal protection officers reluctantly admitted that the task of minding him has been made more difficult and also costlier over the years by Harry's occasionally outrageous antics.
