    A German police officer was badly injured over the weekend following a riot started by drunken immigrants who smashed up their accommodation center with iron bars.

    It’s been reported that two men from Togo and six men from Ghana, all aged between 18 and 28, turned violent at the asylum hostel on Saturday night in the town of Rees-Haldern, near the German-Dutch border, because they were “unhappy” with their new living quarters. The African nationals, who had been drinking, had moved in there the previous day.

    Among the complaints which triggered the riot was the lack of cell phone coverage in the building’s reception area.

    Twenty-four police officers attended the scene after emergency calls were made as the men laid waste to the center’s furniture and fittings.

    At least there was sufficient coverage for an emergency call.

    A nice benefit of EU membership is that in-country cross operator roaming is on the horizon for all calls, not just emergency.

    Brexit is great in every way.

    That's your take on it, is it?

    The men rioting and complaining are from Ghana and Togo. That means they are 99.99% certain to be economic migrants, not refugees, not fleeing persecution.

    But by posting the way you have, you give the impression that it is refugees who are doing this. Now, it's possible that could happen, but it didn't in this instance. Now do you still wonder why people think you're bigoted and xenophobic? Personally, I'm going with pig ignorant, but you seem determined to prove me wrong.

    Limited value to the public at large though. And if t-mobile's coverage in Germany is anything like O2's in the UK then it would be abysmal.

    Well my T-Mobile is pretty damn good, I get LTE nearly everywhere in Germany
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
