Plymouth wants to ban foreigners from city centre shops

by | 9th, January 2012

TO Plymouth, where Operation Drake intends to make the city centre safer by limiting the number of foreign students who can enter shops at one time. This will cut down on shoplifting and anti-social behaviour – because what is more pro-social than treating all foreigners like thieves and thugs?

REICH MOVE 1: Foreign students will be required to carry cards on which are printed useful contact numbers, their name country of birth and eye space to arm length ratio. (Papers!)

People who merely look foreign and are heard talking in a language not believed to be English will be asked for their papers and then, upon refusal, eyed with great suspicion.

REICH MOVE 2:  Stickers on shop windows (rumoured to be cheerful yellow stars) will declare how many foriegners are allowed inside at any one time.

REICH MOVE 3:  Foreign hang outs, such as language schools, will display Operation Drake posters.

A report states:

“Over the past five years we have seen in Plymouth, especially the city centre area, a large influx of foreign students. Feedback received from retailers has been that they have experienced an increase in shoplifting and antisocial behaviour from foreign students, incurring large financial losses.”

All cracking stuff.

And it’s genius naming it after Sir Francis Drake, who brought African slaves to The New World and was widely thought to be a pirate.
