Posters saying "[redacted]" have sparked a police hate crime investigation. They were found on lampposts in two roads in Basingstoke and near Basingstoke College of Technology.
Hampshire Constabulary was alerted to the posters by a resident on Thursday and said they are being treated as a hate crime.What did these posters say? "No blacks, no Irish, no dogs?" Or "Only women have vaginas"?
Resident Priya Brown said: "These tactics are divisive and they have no place in today's world. They're tactics that are used to divide deliberately by neo-Nazi groups and white supremacy groups. It started in the US but we have seen it here in the UK."
So does that mean that posters and statues proclaiming 'Black lives matter' are now fair game for a complaint on the same basis? Do you think police would be forced to investigate if a complaint was made about them?
If you say 'Yes', then would you like to buy this?
A spokesperson for the police force said they were liaising with local community groups as part of the investigation.
Will any of those be majority white community groups, I wonder?
