Or you could just grow up and see that other than a description for finding the perpetrator their race doesn't come have any relevance and stop trying to use a description of someone to justify your own xenophobia.

Maybe I'm missing something, but the fact the victims were taken to the flat, surely a big clue to who did it would be whoever is down as renting/owning the flat? Unless they mean the managed building and not the flat itself.

Steve, you often write a lot of sense, but on this subject you have let the mask slip. You prove the point that UKIP is the party for racists. Anyone thinking of voting for that rabble should be aware of the murky company that they will be keeping.

It is now known that every single person in the world is descended from one of seven women who lived in the Olduvai Gorge, in East Africa, about 70,000 years ago. There is only one race of humans: the human race.

Boris have you actually read anything about UKIP because when you read deeper into there stance on Immigration they are far from racist.

"Proper controls on immigration Our housing, education, health and social services cannot cope with constantly rising numbers of people coming to live and work here from abroad. We must end open door immigration from the EU and run a properly controlled system to admit manageable numbers of people who have something to offer our country.

• Prioritising services for local people We must end benefit and health tourism and give priority to local people for housing, education, health and social services. In planning, local people's opinions should be respected and not overruled"

Can you read anything there that indicates racism?
