    Arrested for Singing 'Kung Fu Fighting'

    A British pub singer has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of racism for singing the disco hit "Kung Fu Fighting" as two Chinese people walked past.

    Simon Ledger, 34, was arrested after offending the couple as they walked by the Driftwood Beach Bar in Sandown, Isle of Wight, on Sunday, The Sun reports.

    Ledger regularly performs the 1974 disco smash, originally performed by Carl Douglas, at the seaside bar.

    "We were performing 'Kung Fu Fighting,' as we do during all our sets," Ledger told the newspaper. "People of all races were loving it. Chinese people have never been offended by it before."

    Ledger will be questioned by police later Wednesday after he is granted bail.

    "I thought it was a joke but they were serious," Ledger continued. "They seemed pretty amazed but said the law is the law and it was their duty. It's political correctness gone potty."

    A police spokesman told the newspaper that a 32-year-old man "of Chinese origin" claimed he was subjected to racial abuse. Investigators are now probing allegations of "racially-aggravated harassment," he said.

    I guess Turning Japanese is going to be off limits in the UK also.

    I don't mean to be a dick, but England sounds like an incredibly rediculous country after reading some of this garbage. I think I'll go vacation in Somalia and not expect any racism come my way.

    We have to let Rapists and Murderers out of Prison early to free up jail cells for the nasty racists.
    Something else you must not do here, if you decide a trip to a nice restaurant is in order, do not ask your companians if they "fancy a Chinese, or shall we go for an Indian?"

    Hilarious, I should do that once in my life while it's still legal.

    I don't even blink an eye at absurd news stories like these anymore.

    The United Kingdom has seemed to have gone over the edge in regards to PC multiracial sensitivity + law enforcement. The arrest of a 14-year old schoolgirl for refusing to participate in a study group with Asian girls who wouldn't (or couldn't) speak English is another example of diversity enforcement on steriods. Examples of UK police refusing to protect the indigenous population from assault by non-Whites like the 14-year molested by Gypsies & a woman who had her guns confiscated after calling police for help after being attacked by Gypsies she caught cutting down her trees. These stories seem to be becoming more frequent with the Labour Party out of office & the Conservative-Liberal Democrats in power.

    The country went to the dogs some time back. Tory & Labour & LibDem are interchangeable and equally bad. It's no better or worse under any of them.

    Enjoy your relative freedoms wherever else in the world you may be while they last.

    The terrible laws are one thing, but I will also never understand the mindset of those people actually calling the police for someone singing 'Kung Fu Fighting'. Even if others would really throw some racial slurs towards me, I wouldn't involve the police (as a native European probably futile anyway as we're not protected, but the thought to do so wouldn't even cross my mind).

    Oh, GOOD GRIEF.

    Are the English gone entirely mad? Ultimate Nanny State.

    Are there any actual English on this board? I think some of us need to move back and retake the country (I'd keep the monarchy, like the Royal Family and its stubborn principles, but the entire nation would have to be re-educated).

    Jeez, I should be Queen of England, I'd get that job done.

    (I knew England wasn't as big on freedom of speech as America - but we're probably gonna get there in the next 20 years, too).

    Jackie Chan had better stay out of the UK then, or he will be arrested for "racism" against Chinese people...

    And I guess Tom Jones can never go home now.. it's him singing it.. in a Chinese film.. How suspicious! Big Brother decrees that Sir Tom needs to go to prison now...

    (Check out the end title, starting at 4:20)

    Supercop Ending


    What a perverse abomination that anyone could be arrested for something like "suspicion of racism"... just unreal.
