There's a sign outside a mechanic's shop 20 minutes east of here. It's a chalk board with "I'm an Englishman. Get me out of here"

At first glance, you might not see the racism, if you're not from here. But the area has some, though not a lot, of recent immigrants and I suspect he believes that Englishmen are "white". He has the sign at the entrance to his garage, so it's like an advertisement. Not only is he proud to be a racist, the board is set up to attract other like-minded people into his business. The people who had pulled up into his garage were older or middle-aged white people, dressed very Home Counties.
