On behalf of the proportion of Brits who would never dream of treating a valued friend in this way, I’m so sorry. If I’d known this was what my country was really like, I’d have left it long ago. If health permits, I’ll be expatriating myself too, because I no longer want to be associated with these myopic, xenophobic bellends.
