Zero Tolerance Required

The comment added to the Marlowe attack on foreign students, reproduced below, did rather interest me, as I'm just back from giving a speech at a middle-eastern universities conference.

Now if Thanet really wanted to re-build its vital EFL sector and could reasonably assure the security of foreign students and particularly those from the Arab world, then the connections to re-explore our potential exists with among the universities across what's called the MENA region.

"A few months ago I had a discussion with an Egyptian businessmn who was planning to set up a language school in Libya and wanted to recruit British EFL teachers to work there. He cited the racial abuse and assaults so many Libyans and Egyptians had suffered in recent years in Thanet as being a major reason why so many foreign students are frightened to come here."

So who are these little thanet diamonds, who beat up our foreign guests and ruin everything decent and respectful all other residents are forced to suffer. Have the Police bothered to follow any leads? Have the TDC bothered to set up an enquiry as to why these things are allowed to happen.

I'm not afraid to say, that it is scum brought into this world by scum who commit these vile mindless hooliganistic crimes, because they are too stupid to know otherwise.
