      What annoys me is the media’s continued use of the term ‘Asian’…he is obviously not a Chinaman!…the term South Asian would be more accurate …they are obviously scared to use the term Muslim or Pakistani…. this Politically Correct nonsense is getting sillier by the day!
      And yes Belinda, this poor girl will live with this forever…God bless the poor little mite….
