Such a brave dick to come running up from behind to stab somebody, what a coward too, couldn't do it face to face could it? No, it had to have it's face covered up too, and of course it would have to be the usual profile wanted in question. Scum.

After all the £millions of taxpayers money that was thrown at Woolwich to regenerate it from the Third World slum it is.

Just goes to show you can't polish a turd.
