The estate now has a population of 11,560, of which more than 60 per cent are white British. I arrived in Farley Hill having conjured the image of a rough, white estate plagued by far-right groups. But my ﬁrst impressions were very different: it appeared quiet, and residents were going about their daily chores, keeping themselves to themselves. I looked but couldn’t ﬁnd the Union Jacks that you see in places like some of the run-down estates in Dagenham, east London. As I strolled around the blocks of ﬂats, a white man with a 15 ANGRY WHIT E PEOPLE shaved head walked past and looked at me with some curiosity.
Local white residents began to want to move out, as Bury Park was less and less of an attractive place to live, owing to the location of the football ground and the trouble and violence it had seen over the years. The neighbourhood bore the image of low-cost housing with low standards of living. Also, as cross-community relations began to deteriorate, some white residents moved out in favour of whiter neighbourhoods. As a result, shops in Bury Park gradually stopped catering for people of Darren’s background and fashion tastes, and, as it happened, youngsters like him began to lose their interest in coming down here.

From 1985 onwards, for about twenty years, everything becomes more settled down and you have mostly South Asian population living in Bury Park. This is us, this is you, everything becomes ﬁxed. As we walked on, Darren said he is still recognized by some passers-by, from the old days of the Migs. He himself still spots faces of those involved in the drug scene in competition with the Migs.
