During the summer South Devon super market town Newton Abbot was infected by a canker of racist literature.
The Mid-Devon Advertiser reported the distribution of a Sick Britain pamphlet, produced by an organisation called Devon Patriot, the website of which is ‘operated in support of the British National Party’.
And we’ve stumbled upon the cap-locked rantings of the Keyberry Crusader (Keyberry being an area of Newton Abbot), who also decided that Britain is sick.
The Keyberry Crusader is so far-right that even the Daily Mail frustrates them!
Maybe they’ve run out ill-informed nonsense to spout, or maybe, after venting their ignorant spleen they are a little ashamed, but the Crusader seems to have taken a sabbatical, and not posted since July, 2012.
We can but wait with bated breath what the Keyberry Crusader will turn their bitter caps onto next. Whatever it is, expect it to be embarrassingly dumbass… or just lifted from the Devon Patriot site.
After a summer of such joyous celebration of Britishness, it is a pity that people still dirty the nation with the slur of their vile ignorance and lies, and then try to mask it under freedom of speech.
Still there’s far more to living in Devon than the rantings of a loon, so it’s a pity they’ve decided to take on the mantle of patriot, when they are anything but. And the views of the Keyberry Crusader aren’t shared by the rest Keyberry community.
