Richard Madeley wants racist thugs jailed
“I think personally we’ve had enough of this racism,” fumed Richard on GMB today.
“It’s not enough just to decry it and call it disgusting.
“We have to track these people down and it is possible through IP addresses.

“We need to spend some money, some time and get some officers to get these guys and to bring them to court and lock them away.
“It is not representative of this country. It is a disgusting distortion of what this country now is today.
“It didn’t used to be, but now we are a properly diverse, wonderful country to live in.
“These people who are sending these messages are breaking the law, they’re breaking a profound moral code.
“They need to be dragged by the scruff of the neck into the dock.
“I don’t think it’s enough just to criticise them or call them names, we need to bring them to justice.”

Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho all missed penalties – and the trio were all targeted on social media.
Sick morons left vile messages and sent monkey emojis to the young players.
The PM said this morning: “This England team deserve to be lauded as heroes, not racially abused on social media.
“Those responsible for this appalling abuse should be ashamed of themselves.”
The Met Police has vowed to launch a probe into the repellent trolling.
The force said: “We are aware of a number of offensive and racist social media comments being directed towards footballers following the Euro 2020 final.
“This abuse is totally unacceptable, it will not be tolerated and it will be investigated.”
