As an aside, on the same day that Racist Tube Woman was sentenced to 22 weeks in nick, another woman was given a 12 month suspended sentence after her kid died due to her criminal neglect. That should give you some idea of the priorities that have been imposed upon English justice by years of thick, self-serving, socialist cretins holding the levers of power.
But anyway… these ‘racist women’. They do have a point.
Not about race or religion, and I’ll leave the question of culture (vis the cancer that is multiculturalism) until another day.
These women have a point in respect of language. I grew up in Manchester with kids of many different ethnic and religious backgrounds, but one thing bound us all together: language. We all spoke, read, wrote and understood the same language. We understood each other and were able to interact and transact. We were all as English as one another.

But things have changed. Have you walked down any old high street recently? It’s a Tower of Babel. In all too many towns, you are no more likely to hear English than you are to hear Polish, Farsi or – God help us – Australian. You go into a shop/pub and you are served by a foreigner. Not because some foreigner is ‘taking our jobs’. Far from it. I have no sympathy for the feckless British who make such complaints.
The problem is this: I don’t know about anyone else, but I really have trouble understanding a lot of these people. It makes transacting business difficult and stressful. It drains some of the joy out of my every single day.
Communication is a fundamental human need. It is a great deal of what binds us together, fostering mutual trust and understanding. No two people who speak different languages can be an ‘us’.
So, I do have something in common with these two women who were jailed for voicing their frustration, albeit poorly. I feel like I’ve lost my country. Not to foreign people, but to foreign languages.
It’s right, therefore, that those who come to this country – MY country – for any length of time, and make inadequate efforts to speak the lingo should attract opprobrium, and short shrift from immigration authorities too.
Or, to put it into Tram Woman terminology, “speak English or fuck off”.
