Commendable @ for pointing out bananas 'error' but what makes you think he wasn't born in the UK ??. Barnsley should be renamed Bigotley

If the information was honest and correct bananas wouldnt need to post the comment, and they probably assume that this person wasnt born in the UK because the information is not available...why? i wonder. WAB are very good at 'selective information'. For your information Barnsley, particularly Monk Bretton has recently had an influx of people from other countries - Fact. How dare you suggest that Barnsley should be renamed Bigotley. Not everyone is racist and your comment/opinion is bigoted and offensive.

@theword. When ever there is a story on this News Site (I do use that term loosely), and there is mention of any person who may have a link to another country, the amount of racist bile thrown by the local one would assume white salt of the earth followers is beyond equal, that is why I call Barnsley the most bigoted racist phobic town I have ever encountered, and if that offends you it's supposed to.

I used to there is good and bad in all walks of life. It is time people went back to where they came from. They say they want to escape bad life, but yet they live here and do very much the same as what they have left. ITS rubbish. They come for benefits etc. set up terrorist cells that kind of thing. Get shut of them all.

Monk Bretton man...How long has this lowlife lived in Monk bretton??...we won't be told that information. These newly built houses were only completed in September 2013 and the attempted murder was in October!!!. Was this scum born & raised in Barnsley??...That information should be made public..Will it??....Doubt it. ...Kirkland Gardens... The first newly build estate in Monk Bretton for years, consisting of mainly housing association propertys, mainly occupied by people from other areas, not people who have been born & raised in Monk Bretton....Its wrong.

I will wager the racism dissolves when you are down Barnsley hospital getting treated for your problems come a Saturday night. !!.
Dear old Lee, Barnsley has one of the lowest influxes of foreign migrants in the country but one of the highest cases of racism ...go figure

Lee I know a lot of white British people who have never even tried to get a job, have their houses paid for by the tax payer, commit crime, are ignorant and can barely grasp their own language....are they better than the "foreigner" just because they were born here in your eyes???

If folk listened to Enoch Powell all those years ago we would not be wasting money on trials for folk who would not have been here in the first place !

I've been in hospital for the past 3 week. The surgeon who saved my life was a "foreigner" and the bloke in the bed next to me was a white Barnsley man who was in having his leg chopped off due to years of drug abuse..
