SO many racists take public transport. There seems to be welter of them. Still, it’s encouraging that racists are now wearing high visibility jackets.

British Transport Police are investigating.

The man was removed from the train at Brighton. He was cautioned for fare evasion. His details were taken, But his alleged victim, the one he threatens and calls a “mongrel” and a”monkey” told police he wanted things left alone.

A Southern spokesman tells media:

“One of the RNOs also took a statement from a witness who showed him a short clip of what had taken place on the train. The alleged victim did not want to pursue the matter and left the station without giving his details. Bearing this in mind, the RNO decided it did not warrant a 999 call, but reported the incident to his BTP co-ordinator the following day.

“He has provided the British Transport Police with the details of the man he removed to aid their investigation.”

But this is racism so it won’t end there. Transport minister Norman Baker, MP for Lewes, tells the BBC:

“I’ve seen the clip on YouTube and quite frankly I’m appalled that this could happen. People are entitled to ride on the railway without fear of intimidation and grotesque racist insults that we’ve seen from this individual.”

Well, of course they are. That should go without saying.
