Not in my name

An RNLI lifeboat in Hastings blocked from launching by a boatload of protestors who don't want any migrants to be rescued.

And this on the Blackwall Tunnel

Practically encouraged by Priti Patel but certainly ignored

This is what my country has become and I don't recognise it nor do I want to.

It's sad that we are in a country where human beings are being dehumanised, I don't think any of these people who are clearly thinking, "let them drown" when actually faced with watching the horror of people drowning, would still think that.

I'm sure some people would say, "well they know the dangers" but either they don't know the dangers, or they do and they are trying to escape a life that's worth risking dieing for, either way... :/

Little bit confusing here. This is a bit local to me and I haven't heard anything. Turns out it was the lifeboat launching from a different side of the harbour arm than normal, and when they did a fishing boat was in the way. Words were exchanged which got heated, and the police was called. the woman who called into James O'Brien on LBC, it would seem, was talking out of her arse.

But those scumbags at the Blackwall tunnel cam do one.

I stand corrected on that one.
Though the fact that a boat load of Farageophiles doing that seems highly likely is a sign of where we are.

We had instances not long ago of fat skinheads with too-tight t-shirts getting in boats and taking it upon themselves to 'patrol the coast' to stop the dinghys reaching shore. They had 2 boats, patrolled a 5-mile stretch near Dover and gave up after 2 days.

And lets not forget the morons who gathered on top of the white cliffs and spent an afternoon shouting at France. 

Farage has brought the absolute worst of us to the front of our public image, and we're starting to look really stupid.

Starting!
Jeez mate that boat sailed years back.

I have no idea if I'll live long enough to see the stain washed off this countries reputation even when Johnson and co eventually get kicked out.
