While the race of an offender should be as irrelevant as that of the victim, the migrant crisis has allowed problems to be concealed that are too important to be left to the far-right to champion, and to use to furnish support. The crisis has always been a game of dodgeball, but we all must play.

It's time to start writing headlines about real victims, rather than those who simply shout the loudest.

If any of these occurrences had been done by a stranger or a random club-goer I would probably have shouted or slapped or let the Irish rage bubbling up inside erupt.

Lee Williscroft-Ferris

In an age of rampant Islamophobia, it is entirely responsible of politicians to reject arbitrary anti-Muslim rhetoric, seek to insulate oppressed communities from the adverse impact of runaway prejudice and emphasise equality before the law, regardless of a person's origin. Conversely, we liberals must be resolute in our opposition to both Islamophobia and misogyny...
