A scene of modern Britain

Hat tip to Mike the Mad Biologist.

Update 6/26/2016.  Alex Small is right.  The story is possible, but unlikely, and smacks of an urban legend.

Note to self: Beware of confirmation bias.  Just because I like a story as a fable doesn’t mean it is true in fact.

    I agree with the previous commenter about the unlikeliness of the myth relayed above.

    It doesn’t need to be true. It’s like an Aesop’s fable (minus the animals). It is a scene from modern Britain in that it sharply paints the intolerance of others we’re currently experiencing, combined with the sheer lack of understanding about everyone’s immigrant origins and our own place in society.
