Suck It Up, Sweetie…

“Basically, the smart bits of Hackney are getting bigger, but sadly a lot of locals are being shifted out. All of a sudden, we’ve got lots of new bars, which is good for progression and moving with the times. But those who were born and bred here simply can’t afford to live here anymore.”

“Now, if you walk along Kingsland Road on weekend nights, there will be several dozen people standing outside the retro bars and clubs, and, I’m sorry to say, they are all black. It’s impossible not to notice.”

A quote from Nick Griffin? Well, no, not quite. Just a reworded quote from the so-called ‘heroine of Hackney’.

And, since no-one listens to others’ concerns about changes to the demographics in their area (and when they do, it’s only to condemn it), why the hell should anyone listen to her?

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, she said the gentrification of places such as Kingsland Road and Mare Street has “brought unrest of a different sort” to areas that were affected by looting and vandalism in 2012.

“There are a lot of issues with the social cleansing that is becoming increasingly evident around here,” she wrote.

Well, at least this sort of cleansing comes with pricey coffee and irritating beards, and not drugs, violence and arson.

    Imagine waking up in the morning, looking in the mirror and realizing you were still English, German or Nigerian.

    What would piss you off more?

    XX and, I’m sorry to say, they are all black. It’s impossible not to notice.” XX

    This is PERFECT proof, and an exemplary show of the “Not in my back yard” attitude of the Commy/”liberal.” red wine drinking, crotchet nicker wearing, poetry reading twat.

    Move a gang of niggers into Liverpool 8, and that’s just fine and dandy, but “NOT in MY area, pal!”

    @ Furor Teutonicus You have been suckered, the original quote said “I’m sorry to say, they are all white.” because the area has become gentrified, over run by the yuppies from the City,taking the property prices beyond the locals income.This area has been upgraded from a previous black area, the indigenous black population has been pushed out by the incoming white nouveau riche.
    Funny old world isn’t it ?
