Gang work in Times: The response

I wasn’t really sure how people would react to my work in the Times. I think part of the small victory was getting it in front of some eyes that would normally like to think of these people in a negative way. The response – through comments posted on the Times website – has been quite vicious, racist and sadly dominated by people whose line of thinking is so very different to mine. On one hand it is great that the photos and words actually made these people think, and react. Alternatively it fills me with fear and regret that many of those posting comments are content with a level of racism and bigotry that, for me, showcases more of what is going wrong with society today than anything I ever saw in the ‘badlands’ of Brixton. 

One example (not the worst):

Ed Harris wrote:

Any pro-immigrant liberal who sings the praises of multi-culturalism – especially Labour politicians – should be forced to live with their families amongst this pack of third-world invaders for a good few months. 

A few knifings and muggings and they’ll join the rest of us in demanding an end to turning Britain into a third-world hellhole via letting people like those in the article flood in.

    I’m sorry to say this on your blog, but Ed Harris should take a flick through some history books on GB’s self invitation into other countries and in turn making it hell for the people there as well. And it’s still happening…
