PAKI PAKI PAKI

RAG-HEAD ~ SOOTY ~ SANDHURST ~ HOUSEHOLD CAVALRY ~ BROWN VAZ ~

Oh for God's sake, if a chap can't take a bit of rag-heading while he's a cadet, lawd help him when he gets out and plays grown-ups.

Mr Mohammad 'Paki' Yaqoob Khan d'Abassi should keep his trap shut and know better than to abase himself butting in to help out fils Lieutenant Ahmed 'Paki' Raza Khan.

The video's three years old, and Prince Harry is facing disciplinary action? And this is the modern Sandhurst, turning out babies who can't take a bit of joshing?

I trust that 'Paki' Raza (as we fondly refer to him in the junior mess) carries the distinctive handle for the rest of his days:

"I say, who's that rather distinguished looking ... erm ... tanned gent talking to Lady Maureen?"

The Paki?

"Well, yes, since you put it that way."

That's Major General Ahmed 'Paki' Khan.

"Ohhh, the chap who-?"

The very one. Damn'd fine fellah - terror on the polo field. Come on over, I'll introduce you ... Pakkers old boy, like you to meet an old golfing chum of mine.

And so forth.

Here's the culprit video, hawked by a worm to the disgusting NoW. Notice how politely fluently Harry troubles to pronounce 'Paki' Accchhhmed's name - and how rude he is about the RSM's orders.

    I've tried to hack into the their subscriptions department and cancel your DT - but you must be picking it up at a kiosk in Kontokali or Gouvia. You've just *got* to stop reading this stuff - or at least giving it any attention. If you were older I'd be worried about your blood pressure - all that cliche stuff about ex-pats sipping a tiffin in the heat and grumblin' about the old country going to the dogs. Not you at all. This stuff doesn't matter! Then piraze! T S Eliot or someone quotable said it'll be wrapping fish and chips tomorrow or something like that. And by the way I guarantee this 'story' *won't* run - unless there's another film of him using a picture of Mother t as a dartboard or something. Paki *can* be a very ugly word but H wasn't using it derogatorily. It's standard squaddie speak being milked by the remains of a profession lower than estate agents in public esteem, but you know that, so why read newspapers other than as comics and future firelighters or for putting under act litter (now most lavs are indoors)? Most news and that of a growing majority comes via the internet, texting, twittering etc or by being in a direct loop. By the way have you watched any of the latest riots - about 40% of those involved are taking pictures of the police - talk about the panoptic society in reverse!
