Under-fire private security firm G4S was at the centre of another embarrassing Olympics scandal today after an employee allegedly called a soldier a 'baby killer' as they worked at a Games venue.
The Asian civilian guard, who faces the sack, is said to have spat at the serviceman and made the abusive remark at the archery contest at Lord's Cricket Ground.And what prompted this, I wonder?
Misplaced anger at the Hiroshima or Nagasaki Bombs? A festering resentment over failure to intervene in the Boxer Rebellion or the Fall of Saigon?
The remark is believed to have been a reference to the soldier's service in Afghanistan.Ah. Say no more. I suppose I should have known...
And as QM points out:
"There's that ubiquitous 'Asian' tag again, which is a gross insult to the vast majority of Asians who are polite, civilised and generally not Islamic in nature. You can pretty much accept that if the roles had been reversed the police would most likely have been called and an arrest made for a hate crime."Well, indeed!
