About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Police investigate Happy Brexit Day poster telling council tenants to speak English or leave country



Police are investigating a Brexit poster which demands people living in council flats speak English or move out.

A photograph of the notice, which was headed “Happy Brexit Day”, was shared widely on Twitter after it was spotted by a resident of the building in Norwich on Friday morning.

A typed A4 sheet of paper was placed on a fire door in Winchester Tower, a block of 95 flats owned by Norwich City Council, on the day the UK left the EU.

Fruit loop. But being a fruit loop is not funny anymore.

For him and his ilk the constitution is just the same as the bible. Deniers of democracy lay claim to it saying whatever bollocks they want it to get away with their far right nasty. . . and just like with the bible the far-right devilish fuckers consider themselves experts on the matter all the while never even having been arsed to read the two main documents they claim gives them the right to be the awful human beings they are. Go figure...
