“I feel an itch, a creeping itch, for drink as we walk through Forest Gate. We can’t find a pub. The Interpreter keeps pointing out the odd shop with a dirty England flag. ‘This is Muslim land, man, there are no pubs here because there are no English. But if you wanna go into one of those gross last of the English pubs we can.”
Ben Judah, This is London: Life and Death in the World City

“It’s like this: Russian and Ukrainian people hate Polish and Lithuanian people. Eastern Europe peoples hate Indian people. Everybody hates the black people. Whites hate everyone . . . That’s just the way it is.”
Ben Judah, This is London: Life and Death in the World City
