‘This is England, my country’: Thug’s sickening racist tirade at Newcastle Metro worker

James Lee, of Jarrow, made disgusting remarks to the employee and spat at him after being told he was not allowed to drink alcohol on the Metro… Read Bob Kennedy’s article here

TWAFA Comment: Another totally unnecessary incident of racial abuse from somebody who will now have to pay the price. We have seen this so many times before, but there two other points to make here.

Firstly, it is noticeable that those committing crimes such as these often use similar phrases. One has to ask who, in the political and media worlds, is promoting these kinds of racist thoughts in the first place and begs the question of whether they should be dealt with by the law as well.

Secondly the story yet again shows the true spirit of the Northeast as the other passengers on the Metro train, who had had to endure listening to Lee’s appalling rant,   applauded when he was dealt with by staff at the Central Station Metro station.

Quite simply racist, vile behaviour like that shown by Lee is not wanted in our region.
