British man verbally attacks migrant for 'speaking Turkish'
A British man has been captured on video while verbally attacking a migrant in London and throwing his zimmer frame off a bus for “speaking Turkish,” the Daily Mail has reported.

The video shows a man, travelling with a baby, launching a racist verbal attack against a Turkish passenger for talking in Turkish while living in the United Kingdom for “free benefits.”

“You’re talking in a different language but nobody knows what you’re saying,” the assailant can be heard saying.

“Go back to Turkey if you talk that sh*t. Oh no you can’t because sh*t gets blown up in Turkey,” he adds, perhaps referring to the double suicide bombings in Ankara on Oct. 10 that killed at least 102 people.  

The attacker threatens the passenger before actually throwing his zimmer frame off the bus while getting off. 

“‘That’s why you’re here mate - free benefits and a walker. Well your walker is going to go flying when this bus stops mate,” the clip shows the man saying. 

The man then grabs the passenger’s zimmer frame while getting off the bus and throws it away while the rest of the passengers remain seated in silence. 

The attacker also appeals to the rest of the passengers by urging them all to “vote UKIP,” referring to the U.K. Independence Party, an anti-EU party that wants strict quotas on immigration.

The man has been arrested and will be brought before court hearing next week.
