TWO DISGUSTING attacks this week brought home the reality of what the ‘racial problem’ is in Britain. It isn’t the failure of immigrants and refugees to ‘fit in’. It’s the racism and violence they face.

Last weekend a Somali man was the victim of what the police called ‘a brutal, racially aggravated attack’ in Hackney, east London. The 40 year old was approached by four white men. They demanded a cigarette from him and when he refused they hurled racist abuse at him. They then kicked him to the ground and beat him with a metal bar. He has lost his sight in one eye and was left with multiple injuries.


A RACIST gang attacked three men in a takeaway shop in Durham on Saturday evening. The victims, who are Algerian, Libyan and Kurdish, all worked in the shop. They were left with severe head injuries after the gang attacked them with pool cues. Racist graffiti was also daubed on the shop.
