'All the garbage that is coming into your country'

The Daily Mail reports that two Chilean Rose tarantulas have been found in Bolton, and a vulture and a corn snake have been spotted in Devon.

One person leaving a comment decides this is the perfect story for an anti-immigration rant.

And this comment was approved in advance by the moderators:

  1. Unusually though, it has been given 141 'red arrows'...

  2. Yes, immigrants (probably illeagal) are obviously to blame for exotic animals appearing, sporadically, in Britain. It has absolutley nothing to do with the rise in pet shops stocking these types of animals and the ease in which these animals can escape and/or are released into the wild when the novelty wears off.

  5. Absolutely foul. Good on the 141 people who voted this comment down. It's just a shame we can't see how many people voted the comment up...

  6. Interesting that (a) they're from the US and (b) it's voted down for once. Why is this person reading the Daily Mail? Even if they're an expat (and with a name like that, maybe also from an ex-immigrant family)?

    The mind boggles

  7. To why that guy in the USA is reading the Mail, perhaps it's on the recommended reading list of the KKK?

  9. I have asked the Daily Mail to not only show the overall result, but to show how many positive and how many negative, needless to say I have had no feedback. However, I do think the 141 negative are a positive, as it were. God where do these people come from?
