My Hungarian colleague told me on Friday that his kids, who speak with Manchester accents but have Hungarian names, were told to “fucking go home” by a group of parents at the school gates this week.
His kids are 7 and 10.
This is what we’ve become. Shouting at foreign kids.

Landlords no longer rent homes to EU citizens and EU citizens can no longer easily find work either. Many are being forced underground, into being exploited. And foreigners are no longer very welcome at foodbanks either.
And this remains, too.

There is no way in hell I’ll visit a British hospital while this stays in place. That’s essentially the only protest available to me.
I am seriously worried about all these hostile measures. It all seems too much like those days when people became required to wear a star on their sleeves and that’s creepy.
But there is this, too – plenty of Brits do protest against what the Conservative government is doing – and like the previous time when tens of thousands of people marched in London. the German news (Tagesschau) reports on it, but the BBC does not. The previous time, they marched past the BBC’s offices… Probably today as well.
It appears @BBCNews does not think Tens of thousands marching on Downing Street today is worth reporting! Let’s show them they are wrong by sending this photo viral! #FundOurNHS pic.twitter.com/I25qr9WUcK

And once again, the UK government has gone back on two promises it recently made to EU citizens in the UK. It keeps doing that, and as a result, it is impossible to know whether the UK government considers you to be here “legally” or “illegally”, and as a foreigner, anyone can get arrested and placed in detention indefinitely. Indefinitely!
