UPDATE: Woman accused of racist rant on Croydon-to-Wimbledon tram

This is an update to the report I posted earlier HERE I notice that the You Tube Video that accompanied this article has been taken down from public viewing. I found this one which is not  as good quality as the original. Democracy? What fucking democracy?

A woman has appeared in court following an alleged racist rant on a Croydon Tram. 
Emma West, 34, of Grenville Crescent, New Addington, was charged with committing a racially aggravated public order offence. Miss West, wearing a white and pink Addidas tracksuit top and jeans, spoke only to confirm her name and address at Croydon Magistrates Court this morning. 
The court heard Miss West was arrested yesterday after a video was broadcast on YouTube, which showed a woman travelling on a tram between Croydon and Wimbledon making racists comments to other passengers. The video has attracted a huge amount of attention worldwide and received more than 2.2 million hits in 24-hours. 

Miss West was remanded in custody for a week pending psychiatric reports. She is due to reappear in court on Tuesday December 6.
