The Enrichment Spreads...

A man has been charged after an incident involving a machete blade at...
Croydon? Islington? Barking?
...Bury St Edmunds railway station.
Police arrested two men yesterday (Thursday, July 11) after a stop and search, that led to one resisting arrest and running onto the railway tracks. Trains were suspended throughout the altercation.
Aaron Neziri, 18, of no fixed address, has now been charged with possession of a knife/ bladed article.
He was remanded and appeared before Ipswich Magistrates’ Court today (Friday, July 12) - where he pleaded guilty. He has been remanded in custody for sentencing on August 2.
Meanwhile, in Norwich:
Work is due to start on a £1 million mosque and community cafe being created at a former pub site in Aylsham Road in Norwich.
A new mosque is needed to accommodate the East Anglian Islamic Centre's growing congregation of 250 people which is currently based on Rose Lane.
Soon we'll no longer recognise England.

Take it from me, who has seen it happen in various places, once a town gets a mosque then the quality of life for non Muslims goes downhill and the Muslims in the mosque set about trying (all too often successfully) to gain influence over local politics,which further degrades an area. The London Borough of Redbridge is a good example here as the area was once racially mixed, with a large Jewish population and a place that people in other parts of East London aspired to live in. Now it's got a Labour council that falls over itself to pander to Islam, the Jews are feeling increasingly under threat and isolated and other non Muslims are starting to flee the area.

Isn't Norwich, especially in the Aylsham Road area, a breeding ground for the protected lesser spotted newts? Gotta protect the newts. Surely someone can 'discover' a couple there. Strangely enough, there are no newts in Basra.

Connecting to the recent report of travellers moving on to a site used for a charity, why not give travellers recognised sites next to a mosque, and vice versa? Both types seem to have an effect on neighbourhoods, so placing one next to the other can only enrich the diversity so urgently needed.

Oh, yes. In a few decades, it's become a no-go area at night, and in places, pretty dodgy in full daylight.

"Surely someone can 'discover' a couple there."

Or bats?

"...why not give travellers recognised sites next to a mosque, and vice versa?"

Well, it'd concentrate all the animal cruelty in one area. So that'd help the RSPCA travel costs.

Wait, what am I saying? They don't bother anyway!
