On the tension in London
Here's the score: for twelve years now, successive administrations from Blair's New Labour onwards have been playing divide-and-rule between Muslim communities and the rest of us. Meanwhile they've bombed every Muslim country that they can find an excuse to bomb.
It's understandable that the Muslim community would feel a bit picked-on, a bit resentful; and while violence is deplorable it is nevertheless understandable that some turn to violence because of their anger at what they see. There has been a race war brewing for twelve years and now our chickens are coming home to roost.
Idiots on both sides want blood. A soldier has been decapitated, a grandfather has been run through on his way home from the Mosque, a Mosque has been firebombed, and the EDL are out on the streets of London in ski masks.
This is a time for human beings to start acting like human beings, not pouring more fuel on the fire. If you've got anti-religious views about any group, I don't wanna hear it right now. Keep that shit to yourself, because trotting it about like it were fact in this climate could well get some innocent person killed. Just stow it until this shit blows over.
