Police blame worst rise in recorded hate crime on EU referendum

Mark Hamilton, head of the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), said: “I believe the referendum debate has led to an increase in reporting of hate crime. It is very clear in the last couple of weeks that more people have been aware of experiencing such incidents than we have had before.”

Reports to police increased by 42%, to more than 3,000 allegations of hate crime across Britain in the week before and the week after the 23 June vote. “It’s probably the worst spike,” Hamilton said.

    British police have zero credibility. They’re a gang of meathead thugs who say and do whatever their political masters tell them to. Brexit or no Brexit, Britain is an alien country that sold its soul after WWII and is since slowly and inexorably transitioning from a Christian society to an Islamic society.

      The same British police looked the other way when Muslims were raping British girls.

      Every one that is called a hate crime.

    Top cops can give the sleaziest politicians a run for their money because they are all cut from the same cloth at least 90% of the time.

    I know what that means.

    Notice the wording. They don’t say increase in hate crime, they say “increase in reporting of hate crime”. A crucial difference. I have no doubt that such an increase occurred and it was caused by the referendum, but it means something entirely different than the narrative they’re trying to advance. It is in fact multiple attempts to advance that same narrative.

    So the natives are starting to dish out a fraction of the crap that they have to deal with every day. Can’t get jobs because they don’t speak Polish, can’t afford housing because of depressed wages and massive increases in housing costs due to millions of aliens, daughters get raped and the police protect the rapists. Cry me a river. The aliens are lucky their towns haven’t been burnt to the ground.
