A video has emerged online in which a woman on a tram in Britain is overheard launching an alleged tirade against foreigners coming to the country. “My Britain,” she notes in My Tram Experience, “is fuck all”. Her identity isn’t known, but thanks to the power of the internet, that’ll probably change pretty fast.
Perhaps the most horrifying part of the video is the expression on the face of the child (the woman’s son?) sitting on her lap. Other commuters sit quietly while the woman talks out loud to, it seems, the whole carriage. It’s not clear what caused the woman to start talking in the first place.
The video has re-opened the debate over race relations in Britain, although anyone who gets out of the house regularly will know that racism – both quiet and loud – is still a part of life here, as it probably is everywhere. Still, the video is pretty shocking.
