I've just known neale for a long while, and he really is a bit racist. Though that's not as accurate as 'old school British imperialist holdout.' Which is also slightly inaccurate, but it's mostly just the views on race that he holds out on, a lot of the time.
Oh, except for Jews, of course. He's incredibly racist against them.
