I was in a pub yesterday, and the amount of people saying they were returning to the BNP at the next election was quite staggering, and I live on the south coast but work up town

I wish for a good hard dose of bad karma on these gangster rap rude boy rubbish....far too much of this type of rubbish clogging up the social housing system as well as the croydon borough....the police need to wise up and carry out more stop and search as well as up the number of bobbies on the beat.....those youths who don't like it must be trying to hide something.....mainly knives and stolen goods !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
