Ashamed of grave desecration

24th Dec 2014

Sir, Those racists [who desecrated Muslim graves in Newport] makes me ashamed to be a secular white Brit. I am so ashamed that my countrymen are capable of this.
Have they so little respect for themselves that the only way they can feel powerful is to disrespect the dead, profoundly hurt families and fuel the flames of tension?
I am sickened by this attack and, being from Newport, I feel the shame more acutely. I cannot apologise for acts I have not committed or condoned, but my every sympathy goes to the families involved.
Yours,
Laurence
