    O/T There’s been another “knifeman on a train” incident, this time between Hamburg and Bremen in northern Germany. A change from Bavaria. Being put down to mental illness and alcohol. Knifeman’s identity not divulged, but if he’s a white German I’m sure the media would report it with glee.

    • Thanks. It’s been a busy morning already.
