Racism – the hospitable environment


Horrified last November by images of the burning effigy of Grenfell Tower, I resorted to song and recorded Nice/Not Nice.

Today we learn that in defence of one of the perpetrators, Paul Bussetti, his lawyer claims his actions to be no worse than those of the Prime Minister, directly quoting Johnson’s “flag-waving piccaninnies” and more.[1]

We warned you in 2008, and again in 2014. He’s not a harmless fool, he’s a dangerous ideologue. The Prime Minister’s racism validates racists. We live in dangerous times.

One thought on “Racism – the hospitable environment

  1. And, in the end, the news isn’t good. Bussetti was acquitted on last minute evidence, that the police and CPS had previously failed to disclose, that there was a second video uploaded to WhatsApp by a friend of his, casting doubt as to which one was uploaded to YouTube. That and a last-minute claim that the figures in the model tower represented friends and family, not residents of Grenfell Tower, because burning effigies of your friends and family is normal, right?

    Justice? Or just us?
