    For some strange reason I suspect the “teen” is one of those “Asians”.

      Aw jeez, I remember when I was a carefree teen working thirty hours a week and going to school for forty and I had so much time.
      Once, I accidentally spilled a pitcher of milk on the back of a waitress’ head.
      Fuck, that was embarrassing.

      Me too, but we would have been wrong.
      However, had this been a dusky savage, rest assured that it likely would not have even been reported as being connected.

      Aren’t those “Asians” also “Muslims”.
      When I first heard the news I thought the victims would have been un-veiled women. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8e7ac70c90bd65105977aa63f3ba826505842a6f6fb6745c006f6c1ed3654a8a.jpg

    It’s diversity acid that makes us strong.

    • Bikinis not Burkas

      One day hydrochloric, next day sulphuric, next day muratic that’s diversity.
      Time for an acid buy back amnesty so that the honest people can get their own money back, and the crims will still have their stash at home!

    Did you see the chart in the article? HUNDREDS of attacks. Hundreds. More than one a day every single day. Hmm well good thing the Jews will be driven out of England soon. At least they’ll be safe from that .

    And even if it is not an ‘Asian’ responsible, this is probably a result of the Diversity bringing in new cultural norms that native Briton are picking up and implementing themselves.
