    Thanks for the chuckle Jeff. That refers to his comment
    on the previous page

    Jeremy Corbyn egged: Man charged over Finsbury mosque attack.

    John Murphy, 31, from Barnet, has been charged with assault by beating, the Metropolitan Police said.

    Does that mean he beat the egg before he threw it?

    I’ll get my coat.

        G,

        So true. The BBC pretends to be against discrimination but they themselves discriminate continually based on religion, race and gender.

        There are no limits to their hypocrisy.

    What’s wrong with these people on R4? Some disingenuous idiots talking about knife crime and austerity, then exclusion from schools of special needs children. So, they are trying to say that it is only children suffering from autism etc that are behind the epidemic.
    Same on Sky where some misguided person is in the Seychelles trying to rescue coral, says he’s waiting for global action on mitigating man made Climate Change. Has he no common sense? The world is going to carry on in it’s own merry way regardless.
    It matters not whether it is man made or not because it is unstoppable. Apart from destroying world economies and sending us back to the stone age, science has no other technological solution.

    From the NetWeather long term forecast for winter 2018/2019:
    “For February, temperatures are about 70% likely to be below average (the percentage likelihood would be higher than that if it wasn’t the last month in the forecast period and thus traditionally the most prone to uncertainty as new atmospheric signals develop nearer the time).”
    Whatever happened to your gobblygook, “new atmospheric signals” then?

    Funny old world….WATO, and all credit to it for doing so, was discussing the Democrats’ fear of being labelled anti-Semitic, ending up as the Labour Party has. Why might they have this fear? Curiously coincides with the appointment of two Muslim congresswomen who are very vocal about Israel and the ‘Jewish Lobby’. Apparently there has never been this problem before and it comes from no-one else within the Party.

    Curious no?

    Another curiousity, not unconnected is how fast the police move to arrest and charge the man who egged Corbyn. All praise to the police for their rapid action cracking down on this eggregious act…however when will they be arresting the man who has throughout his career vocally supported terrorists and even now has just refused to back a plan to make a terrorist group illegal in Britain….not to mention his utter failure to deal with anti-Semitism within the party.

    Maybe a referral to Prevent might be in order. Not a bad idea….the Islamist Warsi first though.

        Juusuf Muhamed Abbudin was convicted of “aggravated sexual abuse” because according to Finnish Law it wasn’t classed as “aggravated rape”. There was no “culture defence”.

        This from “NewsPunch”…

        **Finland’s Supreme Court has ruled that sex with children as young as 10 is not ‘rape’ if you come from a culture where sexual relations between adults and kids is ‘normal’.**

        A load of work has been done on this – including by me when studying criminology at masters level . Police numbers matter – particularly with big populations rapidly expanding in places like Londonistan .

        But decades of loosening discipline on children also adds to the mix

        Personally I’m still surprised that the number of gun incidents hasn’t gone up as well but I suppose they are a bit more expensive and less convenient to get than a blade .

        The BBC and MSM are interested in this today but tomorrow it will be something else but the killings will go on . Average homicide about 1 every 3 days in the capital. I’m glad I’m not a kid in Londonistan now

    This morning we heard from a police officer that the main cause of the rise in knife crime was a rapid growth in drug crime, a leap in the use of drugs especially by students that ld to more drug gangs and that the police were distracted by having to deal with other ‘priorities’ such as mental health issues.

    So…immigrant drug gangs running wild across our nation because the BBC et al oppose a crackdown on uncontrolled immigration, rampant drug use because the BBC et al encourage it and promote legalisation of the ‘harmless’ stuff, and the police are too busy dealing with twitter cirminals due to the BBC et al’s outrage about ‘hate crime’ and too busy looking after people with mental health issues because the BBC tells them it is a priority.

    BBC helped create the knife crime epidemic….though they do have their own explanation…the real cause, R4 tells us, is youths being expelled from school, being sent to Pupil Referral Units and picking up bad habits in the PRUs….no…really….oh…and of course cuts to police funding.

    No mystery why the kids get involved…either by coercion and threats or by waving £50 in their face to deliver a packet…..what looks like easy money and street cred or a job flipping burgers…what’s it going to be?

    Problem is obvious, solution not so obvious….and not sure 20,000 more coppers will stop that.

      Pug- once the police become ineffective and lose public confidence there’s no going back . The hate crime nonsense is a distraction and there is a fear of confronting baddies because of health and safety and a cautious culture which seems to have grown as police numbers have fallen

    Are we being fed a lie and being softened up for the Brexit betrayal?

    BBC is happily promoting this astounding ‘new’ finding…

    ‘Crossing Divides: Has the UK changed its mind on immigration?
    Almost half the people in the UK believe immigration has been positive for the country, a poll for the BBC’s Crossing Divides season suggests.

    Just over a quarter of nearly 1,500 people who took the Ipsos-Mori online survey felt it had a negative impact.

    The findings are in line with other surveys suggesting Britain has changed from being generally negative about immigration before the Brexit vote.

    In 2011, 64% of Britons told Ipsos-Mori immigration had been bad for the UK.’

    Why is this news exactly? That’s of course if you believe it anyway. Last May the same Professor said the same thing….There’s a remarkable change in the air – our hostility to migrants is on the retreat …but also came out with the obvious conclusion from this data that the BBC doesn’t seem to want to highlight….

    ‘The conventional wisdom in many liberal circles holds that Britain has turned in on itself, encouraged by a Leave victory that has legitimated chauvinism and xenophobia. Yet the public opinion evidence consistently shows the opposite – the British are more open to migration than ever, a trend that Brexit has encouraged, not reversed.’

    Last year the Professor said….

    ‘For more than 15 years, between a quarter and a half of poll respondents have spontaneously named immigration as among their biggest political concerns. Yet since Brexit, complaints to pollsters about immigration have collapsed. More than 40% of respondents in Ipsos Mori polls named it as a key issue in the run-up to Brexit. That figure has slumped since and now stands at under 20%, a 15-year low.’

    So in fact the recent data actually shows negative attitudes towards immigration have risen from 20% to 25%.

    I doubt anyone has changed their opinion about migration…they always thought some migration, controlled, was good, it depends on what sort of migrant you get…highly skilled, prepared to join in British culture or unskilled and not prepared to iintegrate and in fact more likely to attack British culture.

    Just what was the question and who was being asked?…It’s alright saying you asked ‘British’ citizens but which ‘British’ citizens…..I suspect many are as British as those ‘Germans’ who did all that sexual assaulting in Cologne.

    Most people are concerned about the actual numbers and that concern is there whatever the skill level but all the more so if low paid, low skilled migrants are swamping the system and overwhelming and displacing British people, culture and society, forcing them from their homes, jobs and land.

    We’re patronised and insulted as the BBC reports we are being educated out of our ignorant prejudices..

    ‘Prof Ford suggested the political environment could be a contributory factor, with opponents of Brexit and US President Donald Trump championing the benefits of inward migration.’

    The BBC’s Mark Easton, mass migration, open borders champion, continues this theme…

    ‘The national debate on immigration during elections and the Brexit referendum may have focused people’s minds on the social, practical and economic trade-offs involved in cutting migrant numbers, resulting in a more nuanced response to the issue.’

    Ah yes, now we get it….no-one knew that cutting migration would have some consequences…both good and bad.

    I really doubt the truth of this claim last year…

    ‘More British people also think of migration as enriching British culture now, after 20 years of unprecedented migration inflows, than felt this way in the early 2000s, when the current wave of migration was just beginning.’

    And do we really believe that Leave voters have changed their minds on controlling migration? Even Prof. Ford has doubts about his own work….

    ‘This collapse in concern about migration is puzzling, as there have been no major changes in migration policy since Brexit, and though migration levels have fallen, the decline has been modest. ‘

    Let’s remember this was a poll for the BBC…and all BBC polls tend to find exactly what the BBC wants them to find…by sheer coincidence.

    Can’t help thinking it’s all bollocks due to wishful thinking and an interpretation of data that is shaped by a particular mindset helped by questions designed to elicit the desired answer.

    The questions and the framing of the narrative shifts and changes…from do they think immigration is positive [what does that mean exactly? Which migrants, how much migration and what are these benefits…I might be positive about a doctor coming here and say nice things about ethnic food but it doesn’t mean I want to open the borders.] to whether migration is the most important issue…completely different question but which gets conflated here in the poll write-up…

    ‘The UK leads the world in being most positive about the impact of immigration. Globally, around a quarter (24%) think that immigration has had a positive impact on their country. This aligns with findings from previous Ipsos MORI research, which shows that concern about immigration has been declining since the EU Referendum in 2016. Concern peaked in September 2015, with over half (56%) identifying immigration as the most important issue facing Britain, whereas now it is nearer one in five (19%).’

    They might be positive about immigration but still have concerns and think it is the most important issue.

    And who was questioned? Are they the same people as in previous polls….no of course not…so the poll is entirely unreliable and useless….and very small in nature….A grand total of 1490 people…

    ‘ In the United Kingdom interviews were boosted in nations to give 206 in Scotland, 202 in Wales, 208 in Northern Ireland. In England 874 were conducted.’

    Not a coincidence this ‘new’ poll has just been released at this time…presumably meant to soften us up for a Brexit betrayal and the news that we are still in the single market, still in a customs union and still subject therefore to freedom of movement….in other words still in the EU.

    Wonder what messages have been flying between the government and the BBC? A bit of coordination going on?

    If you’re suspicious of who was polled you might be right to be..how many were actually of migrant heritage?….here’s what the good Prof. says about the changing demographics here and its influence on democracy…‘there are some demographic trends that will influence opinion in future.’….No coincidence that as migration booms pro-migration attitudes increase….migrants will nearly always vote to allow more migration….

    Demographic trends will pull British public opinion in a pro-European direction

    In this blog, Rob Ford and Maria Sobolewska (University of Manchester) explain that while no one can predict for certain how the electorate will look in coming years, there are some demographic trends that will influence opinion in future. These changes will tend to pull British public opinion in a pro-European direction, and should be sufficient to produce a majority of 52%-48% for ‘Remain’ in 2021, and 54%-46% by 2026…. All the Leave-leaning groups – school leavers, white- and British-born voters, and those who grew up before Britain joined the EU – are shrinking over time. Simultaneously, all the Remain-leaning groups – graduates, ethnic minorities and migrants, and the younger cohorts who came of age after the Maastricht agreement – are growing.

      What’s Migration Watch UK say ? they tweeted
      \\The BBC reports that 48% of people think immigration has been positive for the UK. Up from 19% in 2011
      But these findings miss the point

      #1 The issue is not with immigration as an abstract concept.
      It can be beneficial, but only at sensible levels and when properly controlled.
      #2 Don’t forget that a large majority (73% according to Deltapoll in 2018) want to see a significant cut in immigration levels.
      #3 Other polling (e.g. by Ipsos MORI, 2018) suggests a significant portion of those who have become more positive about immigration did so because numbers have already fallen since the Brexit vote, or because they expect Brexit to lead to a reduction going forward.
      #4 Another Ipsos poll conducted by the BBC last year found that half of respondents in the UK cited differences between immigrants and people born in the country as the number one source of tension

      I watched the Very British History, and it was very biased in reporting how the UA were all made very welcome. I was in my early 20’s at that time, and I remember a very different scenario. It failed to show how much opposition there was by the public. And I almost choked on my tea when the Mayor of Leicester was interviewed, and ‘couldn’t remember’ any issues when his city was flooded with the migrants.

      The Asian interviewer’s parents clearly live in a good house in Lincolnshire, and it was telling that the mother had to be shown how to use a cooker or make a fire by her new neighbours when they arrived back in the 70’s – because back in Uganda she had black Africans as servants to do her bidding, and didn’t she cry about it on camera ! The grandmother who arrived in the UK at the same time, and now clearly in her 80’s still cannot speak any English – wonder what she has cost in interpreters over the years, and not much integration there I thought.

      I hope the programme got good viewing figures, because this generation probably have no idea about that episode in Africa’s history. Idi Amin clearly wanted the Asians gone as they were the business people subjugating the indigenious Africans as their servants. Even Yasmin Alibaba Brown had the decency to admit that the UA’s were more racist than anything they had to endure in this country – which, she claimed she has to fight and endure EVERY DAY !!

    I’ve just personally witnessed a complete waste of NHS funds, you know, the constantly underfunded and cracking at the seams NHS.

    My husband is a taxi driver and the firm he works for has a contract with our local NHS trust. He’s just done a account job for his firm taking medication from one hospital to another one. Now you would think that it may be a box of various tablets or supplies, it was one small box of tablets. Easy enough for a member of staff going off duty to take on their journey home or for them to have staff to take from hospital to hospital even at night. My husband took me along for the journey and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it.

    Now, the mileage was logged by my husband and the firm he works for will invoice the trust at the end of the month, when my husband will be paid for the job. I should add, it’s not the first time he has done jobs like this, even taking and collecting blood samples.

    Good for my husband as he will get a decent rate for doing it and it’s easy really, but what a absolute waste of what is public money.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-47435039

    Yet we never see an article titled:

    “Rotherham: “What was life like for the 1400 children subjected to Islamic gang rape?”

    I want to hear the stories of every one on the 1400 children subjected to Islamic gang rape, and i want everyone else in the world to read about that as well… so we all know about this sick depraved “religion”.

    Lets hear the stories of people who were involved and get a true understanding of the extent of this to everyone:

    Rotherham has a population of 8000 Muslims, of these 50% are women and 30% are children, so there are about 2,800 muslim Men.

    Yet the report described 1,400 child gang rape victims. The Majority of court cases describe victims being raped hundreds of times in total.

    If just 10% of victims were raped 100 times, this would already be 14,000 rapes, That means 5 rapes per adult Muslim male on average.

    The Jay report, also describes at least 4 perpetrators for every victim, so 1,400 victims means 5600 perpetrators, so the average Muslim male has multiple victims.

    According to police there are currently 420 Adult Muslim Males under investigation for serial gang child rape of infidel children. That is fully 15% of the Adult Male Muslim population in that town.

    Government report:

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/child-sex-abuse-gangs-could-5114029

    with a million victims and 8 perpetrators per victim, we are looking at 8 million perpetrators… even if the numbers were 10% of this, that would mean 800,000 perpetrators, which would mean half of all Muslim men are involved in infidel child gang rape.

        TrueToo:

        I realized these numbers while sat in a cheap hotel room in South Carolina watching the Manchester child massacre unfold, it’s one of those moments i will remember till i die.

        I’d read there was up to a million victims, but hadn’t put it in to this context…. and it dawned as i sat on my bed that a million victims meant 10 million rapes…. and that we only have 1 or 2 million Muslim me in the country… so pretty much a majority were involved in child rape, or at least knew about it.

        Then i started researching Islam, bought a koran and wot not, and saw how horrible it was. Then watching Tommy Robinson… i could not find any racist statements, he’s maybe mis-spoken a couple of times in 10 years and generalized to “all Muslims”… but thats just twice in 10 years, and in context even that wan’t particularly bad compared to the substance of his complaint.

        The media is a tissue of lies… and the biggest cancer is the BBC.

        I’m willing to change my mind as well on Islam, three years ago i had no opinion on Islam and assumed the best as most do. But no-one has been able to debunk theses statistics…. even if the number is just 10% of those reported… this must have been well known about in the Muslim community, yet there is not one single report of a Muslim reporting that to the police.

        The BBC is downright evil for it’s under reporting and lies on this.

    Bit of cosmic resonance…..Campbell was promoting, sorry debating, transgender athletes and whether they can compete as ‘women’. One caller sensibly suggested that as with the Paralympics for disabled athletes perhaps there should be a separate sports category for transgender women. Campbell immediately shot this down and said it was ‘ridiculous’. Not though is it? There’s a reason they’re called ‘transgender women’ and not ‘women’…because they are not just ‘women’. I can put a body-kit on my car, even put in a new engine, to make it look and go like a Porsche…but it will never be a Porsche.

    Anyway, cosmic resonance….reported today…..

    Britain Opens First Transgender Prison After Sex Attacks at Women’s Jails
    ‘Britain will open Europe’s first transgender prison wing this week, after sexual assaults at women’s jails by male inmates who ‘identified’ as female.

    Three offenders who were born male but have since legally changed gender will be the first inmates housed at the new unit, which The Times reports will be situated at Downview prison in a building previously named after the Victorian-era feminist, Josephine Butler.’

    And linked to this and the BBC’s curious world-view is their outrage on Sunday that ‘hardline, right-wing’ Christians should be asking for bible studies to be taught in US schools.

    The BBC, on the other hand, has no problem with transgender propaganda being force-fed to very young and vulnerable children or any other LGBTQETC lifestyles being taught in school, so to speak. Why is it OK for some groups to propagate their views in schools but not for Christians to do the same?

    The BBC’s other problem with these hardline, right-wing Christians is that they want to ‘protect the unborn child’…pretty controversial stuff huh? The BBC is of course very pro-women’s rights [except in sport obviously….see above] and the right to have an abortion on any grounds…their body, their life, their choice….aborting what is a perfectly healthy child because it doesn’t suit the woman’s lifestyle is OK with the BBC. Personally I think if they don’t want the child have it adopted not killed.

    Anyway…all change, paradoxically, if the child maybe disabled, say with Down’s Syndrome…then the BBC is all against abortion pumping out numerous stories about mothers who have Down’s children and think it is all wonderful….which it maybe…not the issue here….the issue is BBC hypocrisy.

    How is it OK, in BBC-Land, to abort a perfectly healthy child because it doesn’t fit in with your lifestyle at the moment and an outrage to abort a child with serious, life-limiting, health problems?

    BBC, as always, picks and chooses its stance to suit its narrative rather than straight reporting or discussion.

    Her claims were rejected by the High Court and Supreme Court but the European Court of Human Rights eventually ruled in her favour.

    The Home Office said it was disappointed by the ruling, which it has three months to challenge.
    Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, whose constituency covers the airport, said: ‘It’s sickening. These people are big on human rights but not so much on their responsibilities.

    ‘We all have a duty to cooperate with the police with regards to terrorism and anyone who doesn’t want to is breaking the bond of loyalty to our country.

      EU ensures we are unable to deal with terrorist wives visiting terrorists in jail who refuse to co operate with police

      A primary example of why we should leave and secure our own country ourselves

      (and kick her off the cliffs of Dover )

      “‘It’s great she can use the law to protect her own right to family life, but she has strong links with a convicted terrorist and Al Qaeda have not shown any regard to human rights in the past with their victims.’

      According to court documents lodged at the ECHR, Mrs Beghal was stopped at the airport after visiting her husband with their children.

      Officers said they wanted to talk to her to establish whether she might be ‘a person concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism’.

      She refused to answer questions until a lawyer was present “

        Algerian-born Beghal settled in France in 1987 and married in 1990. He became a French citizen which allowed the couple to move to Leicester seven years later.

        Beghal was banned from the UK in 2009 after being jailed by the French for a plot to blow up the US embassy in Paris.

        His wife is believed to have cost taxpayers more than a quarter of a million pounds in handouts since moving to the UK.

      Once we are OUT of that monsterous controlling, supressive, subjugating comminist EU, the UK airport Police can question this evil chief wife all they want and throw her out of this country. I really do hope perhaps against hope that, Britain will grow some balls and protect the white indig peoples of this now, seemingly frightened nation, and return the pride we once so deservedly had. Traitorism has engulfed this nation promoted by the likes of the BBC and the all but communist media. Bring back Capital Punishment when necessary no matter the persons sex, colour, or religious following, bring back a form of National Service geared as much towards social works as apart from keeping the NS men and women fit and healthy, bring back pride amongst themselves, respect for society for their fellow human beings. Yes perhaps too much Sha’ngri-La, but once I knew a young man whose outlook on life was wretched, after two years National Service it built him back into a very decent hard working individual who succeded as an electrical engineer, it was the Army that gave him that, career opportunity.

    Baroness Warsi on a programme on World Service whinging about people not trusting her coreligionists. Does she not think the gang rape of vulnerable children might have something to do with that?

    Political correctness is another word for fake news which is what Trump is attacking. It is immune to reality as it is permanently fixed what can and cannot be said. How utterly absurd that Warsi can say this with a straight face and the BBC lap it up. We kind of frown on gang raping troubled children. To claim victimhood in the wake of such evil is fake news on stilts. Whilst the BBC remains so ultra PC they will always be fake. God bless Trump for having the courage to stand up to these tyrants.

    Part of their hatred of Trump is that he is against political correctness and that spoils the party for them. They hide behind convenient fictions and make mega money, have high status etc without ever leaving the comfort blanket of lying about uncomfortable truths. Trump forces them to confront these harsh realities and how they hate him for it.

        In Cabinet she keeps making copious notes, clearly thinking of material for a book rather than the issues at hand.

        She complains that someone referred to her as the enemy who cannot be trusted. She then publishes a book when she leaves Cabinet which stabs everyone in the back, thus totally proving their point! Can she not see how absurd she sounds?

        Imagine how compromised the meetings must have been with her scribbling incessantly, every speaker knowing their ostensibly confidential words were being written down for a subsequent book the liberal media would drool over. It may well have massively compromised the smooth running of government. I would not say anything controversial with that snake watching me, and you must be controversial if you want to run a country well.

          “Deeply concerned” was how Warsi greeted the recent appointment of the Commissioner for Counter Extremism, Sara Khan. When pressed, Warsi lets rip in a way that sounds almost personal.Khan is dismissed as a “Home Office construct” — and this from a former Conservative Cabinet minister.

          Warsi is referring to a series of anti-Isis rallies in 2014 inspired by Khan’s anti-extremism organisation, Inspire. Aimed at helping British Muslim mothers protect their children from the toxic ideology of ISIS, ‘Making A Stand’ was a roadshow to which the Home Office provided logistical support — something Inspire openly acknowledge.

          Why would Warsi oppose anyone who stood for human rights and female empowerment in the face of brutal theocratic extremism — with or without government assistance?

          Should Khan now say “I am so sorry for running an anti-ISIS campaign?”.

          As I say, it’s a puzzle.

          More puzzling still is Warsi’s relationship to an organisation she admits has accommodated views that “although not illegal, are clearly illiberal.”

          That organisation is Mend, Muslim Engagement and Development, the fastest growing and most active Muslim advocacy group in Britain today.

          Mend insists it’s striving for a harmonious, integrated, cohesive, stable society. The Baroness says Mend “has the potential for real change” and has called for “broader and deeper engagement with British Muslim communities, both individuals and organisations.”

          But the Home Office is wary of “engaging” with Mend and a web trawl shows why: multiple examples from its supporters of rampant antisemitism including nasty and idiotic conspiracy theories about Jews; vicious sectarianism against fellow Muslims like Khan who dare to challenge Mend’s opposition to the government’s anti-radicalisation programme Prevent,

    The number one concern of the editors of the Trotskyist, Anarchist
    editors, sub editors and researchers of the Londonistan programme
    is if the Metropolitan Police should be allowed to use
    “Stop and Search” in the capitol.
    Well Liz Rateef , Asad Ahmad and the rest of you, the 20-25% of
    indigenous still left in London think that stopping mostly black
    murderous drug gangs slaughtering their own fellow
    blacks and 17 year old girls in a park, just enjoying themselves
    is more of an important issue than you theorizing on ” Stop and
    Search.The answer is to have is what happened in New York
    with their ” Zero Tolerance” Just possessing a knife should incur
    a lengthy prison sentence. If this offends the Londonistan Programme so be it.
    Commission a statue of Mark Duggan and place it in the studio, where we can

      If a violent career criminal who had never done a day’s work in his life from my ‘community’ were shot dead by Police on his way to collect a gun I wouldn’t lose sleep over it. It is sad but most would think: ‘Good riddance you scumbag.’ Only in a parallel dimension would I be really upset, yet alone actually riot in his defence.

      That another ‘community’ were so upset by a violent criminal’s murder that they rioted for days shows you the drastically different views of criminality. They saw him as a glamorous hero rather than a total scumbag.

      Until we address the issue of attitudes towards crime – which of course will never happen – the carnage will continue.

        The intensiy of the Californian forest fires was according to the BBC World Service news “due to too much vegetation due to global warning” However , in reality the reason was poor management of the forests. If the forest management organisations had been diligent in clearing unwanted growth between the trees then the fires would not have spread as they did. This is not rocket science!

      Agree in principle Foscari, but how is a penknife regarded if kept on ones person or kept in a car to use in an emergency such as cutting the seat belt enabling one to get out of the car in said emgency? What about Boy Scouts who always have or did have a sheath knife as part of the gear, or indeed the Skean Dhu kept in the sock of a Scots chappy? And in fact any person young or old could just as well take a kitchen knife and use in an attack or as might be the case as a weapon of defence. I know my wife would not hesitate to defend herself should a person break into our house with mull intent-bang him or her over the head with a sucepan or if she had a knife in her hand would use it, its natural in a defence situation. Trevor Phillips has a point in suggesting that the Police should look at who are the main cause-black gangs mostly, but that would be seen as totally racist-pathetic.
