Don't you dare say you didn't see this coming

Andrew Gilligan has been documenting this for a long time:

"Victims say that officers in the borough of Tower Hamlets have ignored or downplayed outbreaks of hate crime, and suppressed evidence implicating Muslims in them, because they fear being accused of racism."

Do read the whole thing, from 2011, it's a litany of failure on the part of the executive arms of the establishment tasked with protecting us from this kind of violence and intimidation and taking radicalisation seriously. Failure mostly as a result of the kind of fear generated by useful idiots like UAF of being accused of racism via disingenuously fuzzing criticism of islam or muslims with racism.

Gilligan has been documenting this for some time now.

UAF types were already at it on twitter yesterday just a couple of hours after the incident already labelling anyone speculating on an islamist connection of being racist. This in spite of the very first reported eyewitness accounts detailing that a white man had just been hacked to death by two black men.

I wanted to call the irony police, but I didn't want to wait 20 minutes.

One of the (I think we can safely say) murderers (rather than suspects) said that he was fed up with British soldiers killing Muslims. Well, I'm getting a bit f**king fed up with hearing that jihadists are but a tiny minority, as it were, calling Islam into disrepute, it being the religion of peace, an' all. Not all Christians choose to express their religion by converting the natives; few Muslims choose jihadism, but it no way follows that Islam is a religion of peace.

Time to start expressing your displeasure with the authorities by carrying a "walking stick" with you wherever you go.

Rattan makes a particularly fine "walking stick" in my opinion. Strong and flexible, yet dense and rigid enough for "walking".

For my own use I laminate my "walking sticks" out of very thin strips of red or white oak and good Canadian maple, shod with stainless steel or brass ferrules. Extensive testing in some of Ontario's less salubrious environs shows even the most vigorous "walk"* won't leave a mark on it.

I find a gentleman so equipped will be less bothered by Islamists accosting him in the street.

As an added bonus, Constable Plod will have difficulty making a weapons charge against a man for possessing a mobility aid. Not impossible in modern Britain I fear, where men have been shot dead by police for possessing a table leg wrapped in a green plastic garbage bag. But difficult.

I'd say more, but I don't want to have the Avon constabulary apply for extradition. But rest assured, if the male half of Britain takes up the habit of carrying a cane when out for a "walk", the random abuse from unwashed street rats will decrease precipitously.

*in the colonies this is known as a shit-kicking.

@The Phantom - I'm awaiting the knock on the door for failing to express the opinion that every Muslim is a cuddly, bundle of joy and fun, the backbone of the village fete and that their raspberry jam would've won first prize had it not been for racist 70year old ladies called Doris Jones.

Unless the chattering classes stop trying to appease by demanding that the indigenous (I can hear the knock now) population accept that Muslims who live in our country do not have 'British' values (and even if they're second generation they won't) at some point there's going to be real trouble.

Y'know, I used to be uber-PC before the term was even coined. Then it was hijacked by those who don't truly understand its spirit, but either use the term for political ends or because they're bloody sheep who've been brainwashed. Now Im proud not to be PC.

Sorry - above should have read ..."do have British values..."

Ain't that the truth Jay - the spirit of PC has truly been abandoned in favour of slavish adherence to the letter.

That's why certain crimes and types of intimidation are invisible to the likes of UAF (c.f. Choudary and all the nonsense that has happened in Tower Hamlets etc)
