Go Home: UK Sends Out Racist Van Across London to Tell Brown-Skinned People Please Go Away

Proving other countries occasionally do even dumber things than we do, the U.K. is being blasted for a "stupid and offensive" so-called immigration campaign in which a quickly-dubbed Racist Van drives around London warning: "In the UK illegally? Go home or face arrest." An oblivious Downing Street says it may be extended nationwide because it's working so great and has inspired "a great deal of interest." They may not know much of that interest is in the form of hilarious spoofs and memes. Sadly, given the van and other recent racist incidents, it seems the U.K. has about as much work to do as the U.S. on formulating a humane and workable immigration policy.
