    • That is terrible. A handful of racist certainly do not speak for me and I am sure they do not speak for the majority of decent local people in the Borough. There is always someone going out with the sole aim of causing trouble somewhere.

    • Considering it’s members of the far-right promoting ethnonationalism it’s fairly safe to categorise it as racist; anything else would be pure deflection.

    • Then there’s the timing; considering the day before one of the founders of racist, anti-Semitic neo-Nazi organisation was convicted under the terrorism act.

    • Considering the U.K is over 80% white ethnic British there’s no existential threat at play. As far as the language used: it’s intended to incite racial hatred; that’s why the police are involved.

    • 100% agree Ballard, well done.

    • Peoples of colour have been in Britain since the Romans. Whiteness is a construct and easily undermined by the discovery that an ancestor was, say, Chinese. In any event, we are all ‘out of Africa’.
