“Petra
Ecclestone (editor’s note : daughter of the famous Bernie) has spoken
of her relief over moving to Los Angeles as a soaring crime rate meant
she did not feel safe walking around Chelsea (editor’s note : London,
not NY).

The heiress said other mothers in the playground
expressed similar worries, and that stress about violent crime has
dogged her recently.

She told the Sunday Times Magazine: "It’s crazy how unsafe the UK has become — so much more so than 10 years ago.”

 "Talking with mums at school, there have been so many incidents, so
many attacks, robberies, knives during the day.
You don’t feel safe
walking around the neighbourhood.“

East
of London, again, but suburbian this time, with one more pathetic story
about the fucking sugary sections, who this time, managed by their
usual criminal harassment on the web and “IRLife”, to disgust so much
the women who had opened this cafe-restaurant in a white city (which
means that the sugary sections want EVERYTHING) that the women decided
to…close something in which they had fucking put all their heart.

““Any of our customers, past and present will know that
we send all our food out with an England or Union Jack flag in it, this
is not to insult or induce any feeling other than Great British pride.

“We are a little London cafe, we are British, English and Londoners. We
are patriotic, not ‘pathetic’ as someone called us last week. We
celebrate our country.”

(…)
"The cafe was rated “excellent” by 34 out of 38 reviews on TripAdvisor.

But trouble started after the World Cup, when there was a sudden rise in the number of complaints on their Facebook page.”
