The suspect in a stabbing spree in Glasgow, Scotland, was a Sudanese man who had complained of being “very hungry” at the hotel which was housing him and other asylum seekers during the coronavirus lockdown.
“The attacker was a Sudanese asylum seeker and he’d been telling his friends that he was very hungry in the hotel. In the past few days he was threatening people, and it was reported to the staff the day before,” said Kurdish Community Scotland activist Ako Zada in comments to The Telegraph.
“These people had been living in their houses but were moved into hotels during the pandemic,” Zada explained — with “their houses” being a reference to taxpayer-funded accommodation the asylum seekers had been inhabiting prior to the lockdown, not their own private property.
“Their money for buying food and essentials was stopped and [instead] they were fed three times a day but people were complaining at getting the same spaghetti and macaroni cheese all the time. It wasn’t culturally appropriate for them,” Zada said of the migrants, who supposedly came to Britain because they were in deadly peril in their homelands.

The activist said that it was “completely humiliating” for migrants in Glasgow to have “their money” taken away from them after they were moved into hotels — which according to the left-wing Guardian provided “three meals a day, basic toiletries and a laundry service” as well as WiFi — and “very damaging for their mental health.”
Zada also said that “Sitting in a hotel for three months was a big issue” for the migrants, who “said it was like being in prison.”
Britain’s citizens and legal residents have also been subject to lockdown, of course, with elderly people and others considered vulnerable to the Chinese virus being expected to “shield” themselves at home with very limited contact with the outside world — and without the benefit of free meals, toiletries, laundry services, and Internet access.
Police Scotland have said they do not believe the Glasgow stabbings were terror-related — yet sources have told The Telegraph that they are investigating whether it was inspired by another stabbing spree in Reading, England, which has been declared a “terrorist incident”.
Horrible tragedy in a Glasgow Hotel housing illegal immigrants.
All over the UK, hotels are filling up with young men who are coming across the Channel every day.
It is a massive risk to our wellbeing — yet the government does nothing.
