Something I read today on twitter, with all the stories of people trying to abduct children, on family had set on a password that they would tell the person. A girl was approached by a man saying her mum had asked him to pick her up, she asked for the password, which stumped him and he ran off. Not a bad idea.

Not really much to add. Other than embarrassment at their behaviour.

While a certain pair are busily posting anything to denigrate any attempts at highlighting unfavourable treatment of black lives there's this report from the UK.

Investigation launched after black barrister mistaken for defendant three times in a day
The head of the courts service in England and Wales has apologised to a black barrister after she was stopped and mistaken for a defendant three times in one day at court.

Kevin Sadler, the acting chief executive of HM Courts and Tribunals Service, has condemned the “totally unacceptable behaviour” and promised to investigate the complaint made by Alexandra Wilson, who specialises in criminal and family cases.

I read that earlier. Not very flattering to our co-nationals, is it.

That certain pair will now be scurrying around the internet looking for an instance of a non-white person impersonating a barrister in order to get into a courtroom

They both need to get a haircut and a real job.

Anyway, how about this new party, seems interesting don't you think ?
I think it's the second new far right party emerging over the last few months, the more the merrier Labour thinks

To be fair, you lasted a long time. The others caved in after only a day or two. Though I always knew you were secretly hanging onto every word I spoke

New right wing party? We shall have to see. It's early days yet and a tough gig to get it up and running - let alone to get people voting for it.
