    I've been safely in my basement at work, not to worry - how awful though, under normal circumstances my bus home goes right past that hotel. You never think something like this can happen so close, until it does.

    Apparently the Park Inn is currently housing asylum seekers, which makes it fairly obvious it was racially motivated.

    I wondered that, will it turn out to be a far right thing? One of the victims was a receptionist though, but I suppose he might have just got in the way.

    Awful! And so soon after the Reading one too. Always seems like these “smaller” attacks come in bunches.

    They're now saying only the attacker is actually confirmed dead. Hope that's right...

    Feel like this isn't quite the story the media were 'hoping' for.

    I’ve probably said before that Mr K’s hotel also is housing asylum seekers just now from the same contractor. He’s had messages from some of the Park Inn staff as to what happened. From what I know, the attacker was an asylum seeker who lost his appeal for asylum and he went back to the hotel and lost it there. A receptionist and maintenance guy in the hotel were among those attacked.

    Is this knowledge publicly available?

    No. This came from a delivery guy who works at both hotels who was at the Park Inn when it happened and gave the maintenance guy first aid.

    The Scottish Government have confirmed this is not a terror incident.

    Still hasn’t stopped the ignorant and racists of social media asking why we are allowing refugees and immigrants into the country in the first place. :goodgrief:

    I don’t agree with them housing asylum seekers in hotels though. It’s not the right environment for them and it’s not fair on the hotel staff who are not trained to deal with vulnerable people.

    There's been a lot of local uproar and MP's flip flopping about housing asylum seekers in one of the hotels hotels round here. This will clearly make the gammons come out in force. :(

    To be honest I think finding out that asylum seekers are being housed in SWANKY five star hotels while R. Braveboys are forced to wank for loose change on the street just to feed their British kids is fuel enough for the racists.

    I never knew people were so keen to goose the asylum seekers. At least it’ll take their mind off things.

    In fairness it's Tisch who brought up the fact that his entire town is clamouring to give an asylum seeker a good goosing.

    Me: "oops, it says goosing, better change that" *edits*
    Kate and BT: GOOSE LOLS!!!

    So judge, I was the innocent party.
