No British in that name I'm afraid

you see no one was worried in No10 - staff, Doris, wife , parties, trips up north, rules broke (and they worked with the scientits and 'experts' daily!) SO WHY DID THE REST OF THE COUNTRY HAVE IT'S FREEDOM TAKEN AWAY NEVER AGAIN - BIN THE REGS .....NOW

Wow. This tweet is a total bigot magnet

He was NOT British, just because the liberals let him into Britain and gave it a passport he was not of our people or land.

Good - we didn’t want him being sent back here.

Great British name that 🤔🤔🤔

I like the way the reporter said you can clearly hear his British accent NO

Good, Worthless and Evil

My thoughts and prayers are with the families.


Fuck sake Malik. Told me he was going on a stag do. Signs were there though. Definite Midlife Isis. Hope he didn't hurt anyone

Was it another mr smith ?

Jeremy Corbyn will lay a wreath tomorrow
