- British stoicism goes to shit – nice one. As if it’s not bad enough that everyone who looks a bit foreign is being stared at suspiciously on the tube and made to feel deeply uncomfortable, attacks on “asian” people (which may or may not include Brazilians these days) have risen significantly since the bombings. Due to the same ignorance which leads people to get confused about the different Islamic sects, this has included attacks on Sikhs and Hindus.
So, what started out as a fight between “us” and a small group of fanatics has seemingly started to expand to take in not just every Muslim on the planet, but into a full-on racial division throughout British society. Which is one of the least British things going – the last time we had such a racial split was just after the Norman Conquest.
