Is this joke a wee bit racist?

stolen from elsewhere on the world wide web
A Cuban guy, a Polish guy and a Northern Irish guy all walk into a bar and sit down together. The Cuban guy takes out a huge cigar and starts to smoke it; after taking 2 draws out of it he gets up and throws it out the window. Both the Polish guy and the Northern Irish guy are in shock and asked him why he threw it away. The Cuban guy says don't worry we have loads of them where I come from.

The Polish guy then takes out a large bottle of vodka and pours himself a measure; he then stands up and throws the rest out the window. This time its the Cuban guy and the Northern Irish guy who are in shock. They ask why the hell he just threw a whole bottle of vodka out the window. The Polish guy says never worry we have loads of them where I come from.

Next the Northern Irish guy stands up, grabs the Polish guy and throws him out the window....

Yes. Probably its most famous outing in recent years was from the lips of Tory MP Ann Winterton, who was sacked as shadow minister for rural affairs for telling it at a rugby club dinner in 2002.

I had a quick Google on Ann Winterton and according to wikipedia she is a bit of a joker.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_Winterton

The joke they say she told at the rugby club is...
An Englishman, a Cuban, a Japanese man and a Pakistani were all on a train.
The Cuban threw a fine Havana cigar out the window. When he was asked why, he replied: "They are ten a penny in my country."
The Japanese man threw an expensive Nikon camera out of the carriage, adding: "These are ten a penny in my country."
The Englishman then picked up the Pakistani and threw him out of the train window.
When the other travelers asked him to account for his actions, he said: "They are ten a penny in my country."

Another joke(via wikipedia) she's famous for,told after the deaths of a dozen illegal immigrant Chinese cockle pickers in Morecambe Bay...
One shark turned to the other to say he was fed up chasing tuna and the other said, 'Why don't we go to Morecambe Bay and get some Chinese?'
I don't find them that funny and wonder what all the fuss was about.Maybe it was because she was a woman.
