    This isn't my normal Elite bashing thread, i am genuinely interested to hear how you feel you are treated in the UK in 2020.

    Do you feel we have a fair justice system for all races and creeds?

    Do you feel that others you work around and meet on the street are positive and have a similar attitude to yourself?

    When i say 'feel' i mean the way you personally experience those situations, not facts from websites or government figures etc, how do YOU feel as an individual?

    Yeah I think it's reasonable. Work hard, get rewards, that sort of thing.

    Clearly not.

    Fears over race relations appear to have played a part in senior police thinking when tackling grooming gangs, the report into child sex exploitation in Manchester suggests.

    The 'assurance report' reviewing how Greater Manchester Police (GMP) dealt with the street grooming of vulnerable teenage girls, perpetrated disproportionately by Asian men, states officers were aware of "many sensitive community issues" around policing in south Manchester in 2002 and 2003.

    The report, by Malcolm Newsam, a renowned child care expert, and Gary Ridgeway, a former detective superintendent with Cambridgeshire Police, concludes vulnerable girls in care were groomed and abused in "plain sight", with police and Manchester City Council failing to act after shelving a major investigation to tackle the problem, Operation Augusta, in 2005.

    For the most part, yes. No system or society is perfect, but I think we sometimes forget just how much freedom we have in a personal sense, how fair the police and judiciary are and how us Brit still retain a sense of 'fair play'.

    Gremlin. The eternal optimist.

    Isn't everyone who relies on a wage to survive, working class?

    If your wage tops up your trust fund you're middle class and if you've got a title then you're upper class.

    I'm one of the most opressed and vilified types of society out there. White, middle aged male. My life sucks.
