It's a tricky task, this, but I think the clues are there. See if you can spot what the Mail's agenda might be with this story:
Gang warfare on the streets of London as Asian and black youths battle outside Julie Christie's house
Horrors! Not only are the wogs battling, but outside a white lady's house! Have these savages got no standards?!
Cunts in the comments section:
The headline says it all.

Where's Sitts? Is there some kind of anagram going on here?
If they want to fight, send them all to Afghanistan or Irag. Don't blame the government.
Wherever their is a large density of people, you'll always get the hooligans. Look at the soccer stadiums. There's fist-fights every week amongst the supporters, and not forgetting the foul language. We have only our selves to blame, encouraging this sort of stupid behavior, with light sentences.

Hi John. I know it's hard to comment on Britain from Florida - though your fellow Floridian Richard Littlejohn manages it every week, raking in £700,000 a year doing so - but I think you'll find that fist-fights at footy matches tailed off around the 1980s. But thanks for the outdated bollocks.
Hang on a tick, though; a grain of sanity passes through the filter:
And this is different to the past how? Mods v Rockers anyone? Gangs fighting happens everywhere and has happened everywhere not just in England but when it happens in England, everything gets blown out of all proportion.
As for sending them in the army, that will not and will never work. Give people who are already unstable access to weapons and overburden the army in trying to keep them under control! Not a good idea.

You mean to say that white people have a history of fighting in gangs? You mean to say that the lagered-up wankers who go smashing seven shades of shit out of each other in every town and city in Britain every Saturday night, most of whom are white, exist? And it's not just 'black and Asian gangs'?
Welcome to Britian!

Yes, Ryan, superb.
Welcome to Labour's Britain.

I've noticed this sort of thing more often. I think if I tried to post 'Welcome to Labour's Britain' or 'Welcome to NuLab Britain' or 'Welcome to Britain, good here isn't it?!' on virtually any story ever, it would get published. But what does it mean? What does it say? Are Labour really responsible for every crime ever? Oh I can guarantee you that the moderators will have had to block several comments on this story... I know what they want to say, they're just not sure how to say it subtly enough...
