Is this sort of behaviour becoming more acceptable?

Not acceptable, it's just arseholes who feel more emboldened in the current climate and those that say nothing about it are as bad.

Laz is spot on. Can't add much more. We've all just got to challenge it more because it's getting on top. Earlier today in town a foreign family were being spoken to by police for being angry, because they'd just been kicked out of a shop literally for being foreign. The woman said she wouldn't serve foreigners. It's fucking mad. I just said to the fella we aren't all like that mate. Wish I'd have gone into the shop and had a go but I didn't think at the time. That's the kind of shit we're going to have to do though. There's over 500 incidents like this happening a month, they've been emboldened by Robinson, Trump etc.

Yep, I saw that story the other day, and I've seen similar articles in the past. This type of behaviour is all too common, and I can only see things continuing to degenerate.

As Sid says, I think people have become emboldened by the environment we live in.

So they're investigating far more Islamist threats than Right wing threats. I wonder how that happened? Probably something similar to Bradley's attitude to the crime committed by British forces in NI, kind of a 'let's pretend' attitude.
