Yet another video appearing to show a female racist ranter relentlessly insulting fellow passengers on Britain’s public transport is spreading like wildfire on the internet.

In the latest shocking video to appear on the net, a foul-mouthed Londoner is shown asking a man “where do you come from? F****** like, f****** all over the world.” After saying that they come from all over the world, she asks: ‘I’d like to know if any of you are f****** illegal, I’m sure 30 per cent of you are. It’s taking the f****** p***.”  The woman then becomes aggressive towards the Asian man sitting next to her. “I hope they f****** catch up with you and shove you off,” she says, before adding, “I shall punch you in the f****** face. Ninety per cent of you are f****** illegal. I wouldn’t mind if you loved our country.”

The Daily Mail reported that footage of the incident emerged on YouTube on January 24, and is believed to have been filmed on January 23. The video follows hot on the heels of the infamous ‘racist tram lady’ video, which featured a woman with a baby hurling a steady stream of racist abuse on a Croydon to Wimbledon tram. The ranter, Emma West, was charged with a racially aggravated public order offense in connection with the incident, which took place in December, and will appear at Croydon Crown Court at a later date.

The latest ranter is also likely to also face charges. A British Transport Police spokesman said: “BTP is aware of the videos posted on YouTube which show a woman making alleged racist comments on board a Central Line Tube train between St Paul’s and Mile End stations during the evening of Sunday, 23,” reported The Daily Mail. “BTP treats all allegations of racism on the London Underground very seriously and would urge anyone with information about this incident to contact us.”

Besides ‘racist tram lady,’ there have been other similarly shocking videos. One called ‘Welcome to London’ showed a woman holding a pink rose on the London Underground as she abused passengers. Another showed a drunk woman who tried to punch a black passenger on a London bus, but ended up falling over herself then being thrown into the street.
