I was walking home with my girlfriend from work this evening down Bermondsey Street
when a couple of teenagers approached us and one of them knocked into her, nearly knocking her over. I of course shouted at them to be more careful and they both marched up to me and whilst one offered me out for a fight the other spewed racist abuse at my girlfriend - 'chinky slag' to be precise.
Now, being a reasonable kind of guy - who also doesn't want top get sent down for battering minors black and blue, I kindly told the two little vagrants to get lost before I lost it. However, I am still very irritated at this (enough to register and post on this website!) and also I recognised the teenagers as locals on Tower Bridge road. The young fellow that was spewing the abuse at my other half is the son of a regular in the local Ladbrokes betting shop. His father is the sidekick (middle aged white guy) to the Indian alchoholic guy who hangs around either costcutter or Ladbrokes on tower bridge road drinking Holsten Pils every day - just down from the Hartleys. These two are always knocking about there together so if your local you probably know who I'm talking about.
So, my question is this - what is the best way to tackle this behavior - clearly they need a good hiding but the kids know that you can't touch them.
I'm going to find the father tomorrow.
