Campbell's mockery of Irish 'bordered on racism'
Racism? No. Plain old ignorance? Definitely. Though why anyone is shocked I don't know. It's a typical comment from the anti everything that isn't Protestant white heterosexual and male party (or, as they are better known, the DUP). Oh, and I'm a unionist - just not a unionist voter.
Very sensitive is Martin McGuinness in his old age. As for "Yoghurtgate", yawn. Move along.
Racism? Get a grip, politically-correct morons. It was a just boring attempt at humour.
It's not racism. Irish isn't a race. The Irish language isn't a race. Playing the racism card when it's not racism devalues the term.
So, when we take a hand out of other languages, say the French, or the Swedes, is that racism? For goodness sake, there really is more to get hot and bothered about.

It was wrong, but racism is the wrong term. Both nations are of caucasoid origin, therefore race has nothing to do with it.
No matter how you look at it it's embarrassing on all fronts. Personally, I don't believe he was being racist. Ignorant, yes. Racist, no.
Has this not gone far enough? It's not racism, it was an ill-advised attempt at humour, for which he should apologise.
Nobody gurns harder than republicans. World class at making a mountain out of a molehill.
It looks like Martin is becoming a very delicate flower.
Everyone needs to lighten up. I found it quite funny.
So did I.
