A crowdfunding appeal set up to help the family of the Polish driver who died in the Berlin terror attack has now passed £110,000. The fund was started by British trucker Dave Duncan from Otley, West Yorkshire and almost 7000 people have donated already.

Lukasz Urban was found dead in the passenger seat when his lorry was hijacked and driven through Breitscheidplatz market. Twelve people died and 48 others were injured in the attack.

Mr Urban, a 37-year-old Polish national wrestled the driver for control of the steering wheel despite being stabbed, according to investigators. The trucker was reportedly on his way home to his wife, Zuzanna, and their 17-year-old-son when the incident took place.

“Although I did not know Lukasz, the story of his untimely departure shocked and disgusted me, and I cannot comprehend how his family feel at this awful time,” Mr Duncan wrote on the gofundme page.

“So, as a fellow trucker, I decided to reach out to the trucking community and beyond to help in some small way.”

So the next time some moaning “remainer” or arrogant and privelidged “actor” bleats on about the racist, xenophobes that we Brits have become post Brexit, just show them the above and suggest to them that the vast majority of us are reasonable human beings, have empathy with this mans family and have shown a generosity of spirit that you would do well to match in other countries.

    I hear you. But it seems to me that there really has been a shift towards racism and xenophobia over recent months. The Brexit vote reflects that. The fact that one individual has responded to one tragic incident by helping a foreigner doesn’t change the general trend. It does, however, give us some hope.

    There has been no real shift towards xenophobia or racism as you claim, this is merely left wing propaganda. See my blog of 21 December 2016 about the lying and deceitfulness of Hope not Hate and TellMama organisations. The latter is a rabildly anti-western values organisation which promotes islamophobia victimisation at every turn, when we know that there is no such thing as islamophobia, as a phobia is an “irrational fear” of something, well given recent events in Turkey I think we have every reason to be fearful of the followers of a sick perverted ideology. I will also throw in Berlin, Nice, Brussels and Paris for good measure.
