Re: Is the countryside racist?

Reading the Twitter response, most of the outrage comes from those saying things like "Hedges and trees are racist are they!!?!" which is just a wilfully over-literal interpretation of the point that's being made. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to imagine that minorities might feel the cou...

There are huge numbers of them on furlough with fudge all to do. If you think the north...

Lots of outlets reporting three dead, and two more hospitalised.

There's an eyewitness account on Mirror online of a lone attacker running around a circle of friends stabbing them - the eyewitness said he thought it was a game of 'duck duck goose' at first then saw the blood.
