David Cameron and the elite should thank the Chelsea racists for their Paris show

by | 19th, February 2015

A man has been barred from riding the Paris Metro by a gaggle of Cheslea fans. The episode is caught on video . The Chelsea fans are white. The man trying to board the train is black. Some Chelsea fans sing about being racist and enjoying it.

And kaboom! a small, nasty incident in a foreign city becomes a huge deal. The elite wade in.

The Sun leads with the news:

Yes, the Metropolitan police leadership team is all white. Yes, anti-Semitism remains the default position among the upper classes. But look at those Chelsea fans. The elite like their racists white, shaven headed and, preferably, working class. They’re easier to spot and accuse.

In the Mail , a Mitchell McCoy is quoted as saying the man trying to board the train was “really agressive”. The Mail says eyewitness Mitchell is 17. The Star says he’s 16. Mitchell says the victim  was a PSG fan.
