This sounds like a vibrant neighborhood…

Marble statue of Virgin Mary stolen from plinth in east London street

Mr Theile said he was worried the crime may have been motivated by religious hate, saying people regularly used the nearby church garden as a toilet and school children sometimes spat at the statue.

      …This England….unbeleivable. Is this England? Noone in England invited the Normans in 1066, but even they would dare not defile a Church. And to think these disrespectful newcomers were invited into England by her own government.

    That alone would stop this sort of thing from the “restive youth”.

      Nope; Fatima is not a favourite with the Sunni. She and Ayesha were on the outs after Mohammed assumed ambient temp.
