Slovaks go home.

London has been a multi-ethnic society for as long as I've been here and longer still. Everybody has been welcome and myriad cultures have made their contributions to London's cultural life.

We thought we'd got Racism licked to the point that only the extreme right or otherwise retarded would still make racist judgements or remarks even in the privacy of their own homes.

Now, I've seen and heard Eastern Europeans approach black people on the bus and say things like, "Hey Nigger, this man here is from Romania. He doesn't speak a word of English but he has a job." Then on being told that the man he's speaking to HAS a job, the Slovak (or whatever he is) says, "Smoke a spliff".

My stepdaughter was told by one Albanian using the little English he'd bothered to learn, "You're a nigger. You're dirty".

Pim Fortuyn once attacked Muslims on the grounds of their intolerance. I begin to think we should have the same attitude to the Eastern Europeans trying to reimport Racism to this England. Neither racism nor racists have any part in our society and it's high tide we started deporting them... even the English ones.
