A bit of racism…welcome to London!

Overheard as we queued at passport control at Heathrow Airport:

One passport officer to another (in disparinging tone: ‘Here comes another lot of bloody Koreans! What do you call them?’

2nd passport officer: A swarm of Koreans?’

I also personally witnessed a poor Korean guy being grilled and verbally tortured by one of these passport guys. The Korean guy couldn’t speak English very well, hadn’t done anything wrong but seemed to be a fun target for UK passport control.

Yoda commented that most of the Koreans on our plane were no doubt a lot more civilised than the ÚK Government Officials’ who were making snide remarks about them.

Unfortunate to report we had some Australians in our bus on the way to Seoul Incheon Airport. One said – meaning to be funny – ‘That’s the one thing wrong with Korea – it’s full of Asians!’

The coach driver was Korean and we were praying he didn’t understand that. We were cringing in our seats.
