Sinister leaflets have been placed through the front doors of residents in North Liverpool...Ooh! Sinister ones, eh?
The leaflets purport to be from the extremist racist group the Creativity Movement and call on people to become a 'White Racial Loyalist.'
The worrying deliveries were flagged up to the ECHO by former city councillor Berni Turner after one was dropped into her Anfield home.Just the local paper? That doesn't sound like the Liv...
She said she was furious to receive it and immediately informed the police.Well, of course! I mean, clearly junk mail is an offence on a par with theft and murder, right?
She said: "If I’d caught them I’d have thrown them down my 8 front door steps."Blimey, can you really do that? I must lie in wait for the spotty youth who pushes menus for the local kebab place through the letterbox; bastard has it coming.
"It's a very professional looking leaflet which makes it even scarier. Targeting places where folk are likely to be marginalised."Yes, I'd imagine a leaflet where everything was correctly spelled would be pretty terrifying to a denizen of Liverpool....
It appears that after a number of people informed the police about the leaflets, the police are on the case.
A response from the force's twitter account which said: "We are aware of these pamphlets being delivered to the area and are currently making enquiries into this.
"Tell your friends to throw this away."The 'police action', in a sane country, would be to stop with those seven words. But it's the UKm and it's 2018, so...
"This matter has been referred to specialist officers, who are examining the content of the leaflet to assess if a criminal offence has taken place."'Specialist officers'. Boy, I bet they had loads of fun attending that course!
The far right have often chose (sic) Liverpool as a target for their divisive and racist views - perhaps because the city is famed as a tolerant, left-wing place.Or perhaps because every whackado one-man-and-his-dog pressure group or loonytunes religious or political fringe movement knows they are guaranteed publicity in the press for their cause because the denizens have no sense of proportion?
