Reports of disturbances in #Barry. My dad's sister's second husband's third cousin lives there, and we drink in the same pub. He's gonna keep me in the loop.

A black man has been accosted on the street by a white man called Frederick H Longman. He accosted a man called Charles Emmanuel. He's French and from the #WestIndies. He also used to be a soldier.

You can't just kick off at someone because you're a soldier when they're a solider too, what's that all about? Enough space for all of us here like
Shit, Frederick just turned around to Emmanuel and he goes "Oh, why don't you walk down your own street?"
