Aparece en esta canción aunque, me temo que pueda llegar a ser afrikaan porque en otro lado de la canción menciona una zona de Sudáfrica (el Soweto)

Now there`s a rocker in Vladivostok
Got every side by Jerry Lee
But for accidents of disorder
That guy could well be me
I want everybody to know this
I want everyone to hear
Immigration built the nation
You got a bloodclaat standing here

Explanation:
bloodclaat is an insult used by West Indians in UK. It literally means \'sanitary towel\' (blood cloth) but translate it for any strong insult you can think of.

Seems like an appropriation of insults when talking about oneself, cf US black use of \'m*therf*cker\" (don\'t want to get banned!)
