    I also found the treatment of George Floyd unacceptable, but I do wonder what went before that, which we don’t see on video? A citizen going about his legal business in a peaceful manner and -if arrest was warranted because he was wanted- not resisting same? Doubt it.
    Which reminds me of the media narrative that ‘people of colour’ are unfairly subjected to ‘stop and search’ more often. This would indeed be unfair, if there were no empirical evidence to support the necessity for this apparent discrimination. But, we know, don’t we, why this happens? It is often for the safety of the members of that very same offended community. But THAT is NOT what the would-be revolutionaries want publicised.

    What I find doubly unacceptable is the hijacking of that (incompletely recorded) event (George F) by would-be revolutionaries, hiding behind ‘injustice’ and ‘inequality’ camouflage, when the officer concerned is due in court where the FACTS will be established. ANYBODY STILL INTERESTED IN FACTS, MEDIA?
    What I find trebly unacceptable is the incitement from the media, disguised as news reporting, to get ‘protests’ going.
    The fact that these become VIOLENT ‘protests’ is never mentioned, just as the fact that there are ILLEGAL migrants crossing borders, is also never mentioned.
    The MSM have become skilled in omitting/leaving out important descriptive adjectives, because it serves their purposes to MANIPULATE LANGUAGE.

      My first reaction to the video was that the police were well out of order. It still is. But I’m also well aware that there can be far more to an incident than what shows up on a bit of video, and justice must be allowed to run its course.

      The media, BLM protesters and virtue-signalling businesses aren’t interested in justice. They want a head to roll because they’ve already decided what happened from partial evidence. The outrage when TR was adjudged to have put a trial at risk and jailed for merely asking questions at the wrong time has disappeared, to be replaced by statements in advance of trial that the accused are all guilty and must be locked up.

      Meanwhile, the antics of these brainwashed imbeciles and their cheerleaders have removed any feelings of sympathy I originally had. I despise them all, and their self-hatred.

          Stew – which leads us ever more confidently to the conclusion that this isn’t about George Floyd at all. The assassinated BLACK policewoman, who was sitting in her police cruiser when she was shot this week, has gone ENTIRELY without so much as a whisper from the mob.
          So could it all be anti-police (i.e.Law and Order?) That would mean i.a. that The Donald read the situation perfectly yet again.
          But there is also not a whisper about WHITE lives, say thousands of them, being lost in the South African farm murders! So, one has to conclude, THEY don’t matter at all. In fact, so little do they matter that no-one would dream of taking to the streets to protest their mass execution. Does that mean THEY matter even less than black lives?
          Certainly, beeb -which has just fed us a lunch-time bulletin full of BLM hate propaganda- couldn’t care about them one bit. Even though MANY OF THEM DIED A MUCH FOULER DEATH THAN DID GEORGE FLOYD, because they were deliberately tortured in vile ways, often quite beyond description.
          But that is of no interest to beeb or the MSM in general. Wrong agenda.
          The stench of hypocrisy drifts across the US, UK, SA and many other places, where the media stir, and a very foul smell it is.
          Disgusting too, the manner in which George Floyd’s death is being hijacked and manipulated by people who claim to care about it.
          Maybe this is -at least in part- all about BLACK POWER? And for a little visual update: the raised, clenched fist has now been replaced by the ‘taking the knee’ thing; if you think about it, it certainly makes sense that it has exactly the same meaning.

        RD and fnw above, I agree with your horror at the way the police behaved. Not for the first time on here, I find myself wondering out loud in print about the intelligence of some Police Officers whether European, UK or American. It is not as though the death of a BAME person on challenge, arrest or in custody has never happened before now and has provoked and been used by unscrupulous others to provoke protest, riot and criminality.

        The carelessness and thoughtlessness of ex-Officer Chauvin has caused a lot of damage and anger.

        You also have to wonder, in this case, at the mentality and ethics of the Democratic Party in the USA. They have truly moved far away from the Republicans (there used to be very little difference pre- and post-WW2.) and have very much become the Nasty Party of world politics in my view.

        As I understand it from a media that I have been fed on here, Floyd was challenged and questioned about a currency violation. What happened next I know not but then the video comes into play and he is seen face down, cuffed and with the officer leaning his weight via a knee on Floyd’s neck.

        Coincidence, but I have just been watching through the Pandemic Lockdown a boxed set of Hill Street Blues Series 1. I would normally have expected at that point in the video of Floyd to have seen two officers pull him to his feet using a baton under his arms, Marandize him and get him in their car for the trip to the Station and booking and detention. Unless a smart lawyer turns up and frees him if there is no case to hold him further.

        Why the former Officer continued to kneel on Floyd we will have to wait for the trial of ex-Officer Chauvin. The UK media have been negligent in eliciting facts of the challenge and arrest of George Floyd and they must bear responsibility for what happens here, just as any negligence in correct reporting in the US must take its share of the blame for what has followed. The media in the UK, US and maybe elsewhere may pass the blame to the limitations imposed by the Pandemic.

        That, I think, is a lame excuse. In the 24/7, telecom era of news there is nothing to stop an Editor at the BBC (or anywhere else) telephoning or e-mailing for a statement from the Minneapolis Police. That is what I would have done and reported factually what was known by them. Then it is important to wait for the trial and for facts under oath to be presented to the Court in the US.

    I often notice that when someone who is complaining of “structural racism” is asked by journalists what measures they would like to see introduced to tackle it, nothing specific is ever mentioned. It happened again on the Today programme this morning. The truth as I see it is that there isn’t any more (fair) legislation that could be passed to improve opportunities for blacks. They already have everything they need to put them on an equal footing with whites. It should occur to BBC interviewers to then ask the obvious question: If they are chasing phantoms with the “structural racism” myth, is it something inherent in blacks themselves that accounts for their relative failure, their poor outcomes, and their perpetually unresolvable sense of grievance? That could be the starting-point for an illuminating discussion, an oldstyle BBC discussion programme that for once might be interesting, socially useful, reverse their plummeting viewing figures and even be worth the licence fee. I would watch it.

    Zelazek – This ‘structural’ or ‘institutional’ racism phantom is such a favourite, precisely because it would be hard to define, and is very complex when you attempt to do so.
    That generalisation can, however, be employed when you have a political objective, as the self-loathing, virtue-signalling McPherson showed in his ‘report’, in which he simply tarred every officer in the Met with the same brush, regardless.
    His approach reminded me a bit of SS/Gestapo tactics in WW2: Don’t know who carried out the assassination of, say Reynhard Heydrich or whoever? Well, solve the problem: simply execute the entire village to which the assassins are suspected of belonging.

      “… Well, solve the problem: simply execute the entire village to which the assassins are suspected of belonging.”
      My understanding is that you are wrong.
      Conquered peoples have certain rights under international military law, if there has been a formal surrender.
      Those resisting the conquest lose most of those rights when taking up arms against occupying forces.
      When occupying forces are acting in accordance with these laws, and their forces are being, in effect, murdered,
      it is legal to to take hostages and carry out reprisals, including shooting INNOCENT people, to discourage further lawbreaking.

      Let us see what the experts say.

    Seriously, though, this blatant difference in treatment before the law cannot be allowed to continue without descending into anarchy. Yet the media and authorities are evidently prepared to risk this to achieve their goal.

        For all this talk of BAME people being attacked by a racist Covid-19 virus and killed by it, Yemen and Syria have had precious few infections and consequent deaths.

        OK, it can be argued that both are still Civil War zones and diagnosing an illness, let alone collecting & reporting statistics, may be very difficult. But I recall the BBC at the start of the UK Lockdown speculating how the Pandemic would devastate Yemen and also possibly Syria.

        Stew, conservatives (and I include many US Republicans especially some ardent Republican friends of mine under that term) want all people to do well in life, all people to have work and the dignity of work and enjoy a measure of increasing affluence irrespective of skin colour.

        Opponents of conservatives seem to only be wanting to find and promote grievances and find and promote victims and to use them as political cannon fodder in attacking conservatives.

        President Trump seems to be of the same or similar view. “Get people working, get people richer, then they can afford to stay at my resort and have a great vacation. Let’s make vacations great again.”

      First it was ‘racialist’ then it morphed into ‘racist’.

      However the word has been over-used, over-applied and its just possible that it can be used against the people using it and ‘we’ can’t have that.

      So now we have ‘white supremacist’, a term once used against some whackos holed up in the middle of the Texas outback, used against anyone who is ‘white’ who refuses to accept that they are guilty of original sin. It has the advantage of being ‘one-way’, a ‘black’ can’t be a ‘white supremacist’ though some might (foolishly) try to asset that ‘blacks’ can be racist.

      It also follows the pattern of extending a slur wider and wider; back in 1940 one had to murder six-million Jews to be a Nazi, now merely voting for Brexit or stepping into the path of a red-light running lycra-lout is enough!

    75 years on from the Normandy landings and the BBC’s only focus is BLM.

    Who’d have thought, that those men who sacrificed so much, did so for people who hate our history, desecrate our statues, loathe us personally (and by extension the D Day veterans) and march against the law and therefore the health interests of us all.

    We all know it’s mainly the same mob who marched to ‘stop the war’, the same people who apologise for Islamism, the same people who did and still do everything possible to stop Brexit.

    If there was a march against the abandon of Care home residents, illegal channel crossings or flights arriving form infected countries, you could bet everything you have the police and the state would throw every instrument at prevention and the BBC would shame every face.

    Who’d have thought that the government, the police and most of our media are, despite straw man objections, in hock to such a divisive movement. Terrified of offending or preventing protests, despite the public health interest, for fear of nothing more than a word. Racist.

    The problem of that inaction is bigger divides not less.

    The British never asked for mass immigration or the problems it brings, it was imposed. Therein lies the fundamental problem, unresolved throughout most of Western Europe. A host population simmering and festering against alien concepts and cultures who seem to hate us and our history.

    I watched (on the BBC) yesterday some kids cleaning graffiti off historic statues, only to be barracked and berated by BLM protesters for having the temerity to remove their message. These were historic national heroes!

    How can our country be like this? Would any 75 years ago have dreamed of this Britain? Where is the leadership? The national pride in our ancestors? The kind of backbone to demand respect and deference to the giants on who’s shoulders we stand?

    The American political ideological gap is now so big most issues are beyond healing. We are going the same way and there’s only one possible outcome.

      Somebody needs to remind Piers Morgan what the objective of the lockdown actually was. It was to prevent, as far as possible, the spread of the Coronavirus and to protect, especially, the most vulnerable in our community.

      I think, and so do Durham police, apparently, that Dominic Cummings, at worst, may have made a minor transgression of the guidelines, but nothing they would do anything about – whilst making sure he did not come into contact with other members of the public, and taking care, as best he could, he believed, of his 4-year-old son. Autistic or not, it really does not matter.

      Now, Piers, explain to me how these stupid protest marches are preventing, as far as possible, the spread of the Coronavirus and protecting the most vulnerable in our society.

      And you, you moron, Piers, think that Dominic Cummings is to blame if these is a huge re-spike in Coronavirus a few weeks from now.

    On sky, I was flipping through channels and on their news channel they had one of these panels of 4 (all lefties) and a wall of about 50 faces on tv screens.
    I just caught a question asking who would support Trump trying to do some sort of WHO job to improve the state of things such as this pandemic. I must admit I didn’t hear the question properly but my point is that of the 50 on the screen, 0 would support Trump.

    What’s the chances of randomly finding a crowd where 0% would support DT unless they were handpicked and vetted first to make sure they were the right kind of random audience.

    Even question time let’s in a handful of the audience who are not of the far left.

      From the Geller Report of 5/6/2020:

      “As a Washington Post database for 2019 makes clear:

      10 million police arrests in US

      1004 fatal police shootings

      41 were of unarmed persons

      19 of these unarmed were white

      9 were African American

      13 other – Asian / Hispanic

      (As the Wall Street Journal points out in the piece below, The Post defines ‘unarmed’ broadly to include such cases as a suspect in Newark, N.J., who had a loaded handgun in his car during a police chase.)

      The Wall Street Journal: “A police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.

      In 2018, for every black person killed by a white in America, there were 11 blacks killed by a black person.

      This past weekend, 80 Chicagoans were shot in drive-by shootings, 21 fatally, the victims overwhelmingly black.”

      International media have said “the four white officers arrested for Floyd’s murder”. Two of them are not white.

    All this crap about Black Lives Matter. What is not being reported in the BBC annals is all of the riots going on across Europe, and further afield in the world. Most of this stuff is a convenient cover for one organisation only – Antifa, and the snowflake generation is so dumb that they can’t see it.

    Unfortunately, the media aren’t investigating it either.

    There was a trial run of all this late last year – in Chile. Until last year, Chile had been very peaceful, since the Pinochet years. The country was beginning to really get on its feet, it had no enemies, and its economy was a strength in South America, with many outsiders flocking their from neighbouring countries.

    I was in Santiago on the day the riots started off. There was discontent when the basic fare on public transport (bus and metro) in the city was raised – by about 4%. A lot of Chileans travel into the city from surrounding poorer areas, and this represented a significant rise in cost of living for some.

    At first, there was a day or so where Chileans demonstrated their feelings by standing out in the street banging pots and pans (sound familiar ?) – the standard protest medium used.

    However, the next day, it really kicked off when hordes of people suddenly rioted, and kettled Santiago by burning all the Metro stations and every bus they could get their hands on….which sounds crazy, if you are protestring public transport fares – but makes sense if you want to get people out on the street, since they can no longer get to work. Thousands of people from towns all around Santiago were also stranded in the city, because there was no transport out.

    I was in the city centre the following morning, and all over the place, Antifa symbols were spray-painted across every targeted building, mainly government, finance and other businesses head-quartered in Santiago. According to people with whom I spoke, Antifa had hardly been heard of in Santiago. They were using any discontent they could find as a shield to create the anarchy they desire. This blew out to cities all across Chile in a matter of days, like Valparaiso/Vina del Mar, which had never had any issues around public transport whatsoever – it became riot central wherever you looked. Within days, therefore, the economy was tanking.

    The economy of Chile has not recovered from this, and many are worried that it might never do so – which, of course, creates further discontent.

    That’s the Antifa strategy – and we’re seeing it played out all over the world now – any excuse will do, blow it out of proportion, sit behind a convenient shield (BLM, for instance) and start the fires burning in exactly the neighbourhoods where unrest can be agitated again and again, because they have nothing left after the fires and looting.

    Make no mistake – Antifa are a group to be feared, all they need is a little bit of discontent anywhere, and they can blow it out of proportion in no time – and COVID lockdowns have provided a great many people with time on their hands….

      Richard -I think we all make the same mistake, listing facts and truths. Facts and truths don’t matter to Antifa. They didn’t matter to those feeding Madame Guillotine and they didn’t matter to Trotsky or Lenin.
      What matters to them is achieving power through violence and intimidating anyone who disagrees with them; at present that would include most of our weak-kneed politicians, media and even policemen. Look at the way they are all coerced into submission by BLM, inculcating guilt or simply threatening violence. Losers all, who actually don’t understand that in future, what they think is conciliation will have nasty consequences.
      Antifa and the BLM crowd thrive on signs of weakness, and I have a feeling that would include any attempt at rational debate.
      Just watched Chichi Nzundu on Beeb dragging Windrush, the virus and even Grenfell into the ‘racism’ narrative, so on the rare occasion anyone from the Left does have something to say, don’t look for rational. When ‘the blood is up’, rational don’t come into it.
      As for facts and truths, don’t expect those from beebworld, hotbed of propaganda either.

        Antifa is every Student Union. In spirit, it’s our entire education system, her majesties opposition, the fabian society, large sections of our police. It’s our media, the FA, our unions, some in the Royal family and most of the British establishment.

        Their tactics are simple: disruption and violence. They close down any debate, shout, chant and disrupt to deny voice to anything alt-right or beyond.

        Despite the irony of ‘fascist tactics’ against ‘fascists’, they justify these actions very simply. Opposing anything they perceive as racism trumps any argument against their methods.

        Pernicious anti intellectual marxist zealots, they are aggressively anti free speech.

        Hiding their identities, they go out of their way to expose the identities of those who do nothing more than exercise their right to free speech. Sometimes this exposure has ruined lives.

        In my view, they exacerbate, not aid racism, they divide not heal and they should be banned here as they are in the US. Trump was 100% correct to label them as a terrorist organisation.

        No body should be allowed to close down free speech. We all deserve to be listened to, criticised or applauded on the strength or weakness of our arguments. The ballot box should be judge jury and executioner not Antifa.

    I was looking at a clip on YouTube where New York governor Cuomo turns on his own police force in Buffalo and uses a bit of video to condemn them.

    Now what I saw was a police line moving forward and an elderly man refusing to move. If the police stopped advancing then he would have achieved his objective and the police would have failed and their forward movement halted. One of the officers gave him a slight shove and he fell over backwards.

    With the wisdom of a post-event Governor or journalist one might not have shoved someone backwards, but what was the alternative?

    The police are getting a lot of on-line criticism for not stopping but in fact one cop makes a move to bend down but is directed forward by what looks like an officer of higher rank who then starts to organise a cordon around the fallen man. But the clip ends at that point so it isn’t too obvious that that is what happened.

    Of course the event is made into a story, top n’ tailed with the media’s narrative and the Governor joins in. More petrol on the flames, more lives damaged and virtually impossible to have a fair trial.

    But now it is all trial by mob!

    Just wait until the mob comes for you.

      JimS – I saw that (or a similar clip) and also heard an officer say, quite clearly, on the clip I saw, that there was an EMS (Emergency Medical Services) team right there with the police group, and that the police team should move on, presumably so that the EMS team could safely get to any injured, and not be on the ‘front line’ whilst trying to respond to a medical need.

      I also read yesterday, somewhere, that the police team are specifically told to keep moving forward, not to touch any injured – because they have no idea whether they may be doing them more harm than good, and to leave the treatment of any injured to professional medical experts. Seems perfectly sensible behaviour to me.

      What on earth the old guy thought he was doing in walking up to the police team, God knows – but he literally put his own life in danger since the police would not have known if he had any weapons or not. Any other action is obstruction of police officers….. but I’m guessing that he knew that, and that was his intention – shame it didn’t turn out too well for him.

    The BBC continue to cream themselves over George Floyd.
    Today the anarchists/SWP/ Extinction Rebellion on furlough folk are demonstrating in close proximity in several cities.
    Two points.

    1. Has anyone seen any evidence that the attack on George Floyd was racist in nature? The cop was a thug, the action was illegitimate, he should be investigated, but was it racist just because the victim is black? Are we mow saying that any crime of any kind on any BAME person is first and foremost racist, irrespective of any evidence ?
    2. The R value is apparently fractionally above 1 in the North West. Yet 15000 demonstrated in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester. They were not 2m apart. They will almost certainly kill someone of Coronavirus because of their actions. where are the Police, the government, the NHS, PHE on that one? All AWOL.

    And what does the BBC do ? They dredge out a black Professor of African Studies from Duke University in the USA to carry on the race victimhood FFS.
    Scraping the bottom of the barrel doesn’t come close. But keeping the narrative going is all that counts with the BBC.

      1. Precisely what is being attempted – they hope that any perceived ‘attack’, physical, mental, verbal, imagined or fabricated, on BAME groups is, by definition, racist – so, also by definition, it is a crime ! QED.

      2. They are successfully breaking the law, and will feel entitled to break laws with impunity, if they perceive their ’cause’ to be ‘right’, so, in their eyes, it is not a ‘crime’.

      They are, in effect, creating new ‘law’, and appointing themselves judge, jury and executioner as well….. can’t be bad, if you can get away with it.

Black mothers die in childbirth at over twice the rate of white mothers, according to national health data.

    It doesn’t take long to “fact check” this to see if this is racism or something else.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5614457/
    Table 2 shows blacks were 8.24 times more likely than Whites to have a sales (drug dealing) charge.

    https://minorityhealth.hhs.gov/omh/browse.aspx?lvl=4&lvlid=25
    Black females were 2.3 times more likely to be overweight as compared to non-Hispanic white females.

    Looks to me that the BBC accusations of state racism are nothing more than bad life choices.

      Unfortunately you are not allowed bad life choices these days..

      You are only allowed life choices.
      Ones that are detrimental to you are no longer defined as yours but are attributable to the actions of others or poor or lack of government provision.

      Play truant and get into drugs = lack of money for schools
      Obesity= unfettered marketing by Mcdonalds et al
      Diabetes = poor people who are not given the state handouts needed for healthy food and gym membership
      No qualifications= lack of funding in schools especially for BAME.

      Etc etc.

    I note the BBC website reporting, in a very concerned way, that masks are being handed out, willy-nilly, (presumably in packs, since their useful life, we are told, isn’t that long) to protesters/rioters across the UK….

    …. and on the other hand, dentists and medical staff are telling us via their ‘unions’, associations, and high-level NHS Trust advocates that they can’t open because… PPE isn’t available for dental patients, hospital visitors and outpatients.

    Hmmm…. someone is telling porkies, methinks.

    And someone clearly does not want the British public to see the great unwashed mask-less. Otherwise it might spoil the narrative that it’s OK to have mass gatherings if you are protesting – honest, nothing can go wrong – and in the meantime you are under arrest for having a beer with friends from more that one household in your garden, properly distanced, etc.

    So many photographs staged for the media seem to bear out the ‘masked’ crimninals concept – until you then notice the one where the ‘slebs’ are completely ignoring all the rules – maskless, innit ?

      Spot on. People have now stopped listening to the police and stopped listening to the government.

      Our police impose a draconian interpretation of law to some, yet bow and kneel to lawbreakers. This lack of consistency and blatant hypocrisy undermines the fabric of society itself.

    As race riots and cynical political surrender to the race-baiters by the Democrats in an attempt to win Black votes in the coming election look set to destroy America and with a similar scenario in the UK as police bow down to the rioters and blacktivists we have Daniel Hannan, seemingly totally oblivious to the disasters that befall nations that import large numbers of alien people, both current and historic, suggesting we allow 3 million Chinese to come here….where will they live?…perhaps in a ‘Hong Kong’ set up for them here….I saw it on his Twitter feed and thought maybe I was looking at a spoof site…but no…it’s in the Telegraph today…

    ‘If China won’t tolerate a free Hong Kong on its territory, let us rebuild it on ours. As well as offering a path to citizenship for Hong Kongers, we should offer them space to build a new self-governing city – a charter city, as is currently being proposed by a group within the territory. Let them replicate the tax rates and legal institutions that raised Hong Kong to the highest opulence. Let that city be open to settlement to both British and Hong Kong nationals.

    It wouldn’t cost our taxpayers a penny: Hong Kongers would bring their own wealth. And, once they arrived, they would generate economic activity for the surrounding region, just as they did in their home city. It would be just the boost we need coming out of the post-covid recession.

    Where should we site the cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces? Perhaps in a northern English town that retains its old infrastructure, but whose population is falling. Perhaps somewhere new – in one of the sparser parts of Wales or Northern Ireland, say. Perhaps, as a Telegraph letter-writer suggested this week, on the Isle of Wight, which could be designated a Crown Dependency like the Channel Islands, allowing it to set its own taxes. Or perhaps we should take an existing regeneration project, such as the Thames Gateway, and let Hong Kongers raise their skyscrapers there.’

    This is how we ended up where we are today with our history, society and nation being trashed in order to appease the immigrants with the native population demonised and dehumanised, their very existence considered a horrible inconvenience to be erased by importing more and more immigrants to ‘brown’ Britain in what is in effect ethnic cleansing not just of the culture, traditions and history but of the people themselves.

    What of course is really odd is that there is almost total silence from the BBC on what is a bombshell statement and policy that Boris has set in motion with his unilateral offer of a new home in the UK for the 3 million…..just where did he get the authority and right to make such an offer? Can’t imagine the same level of silence if say Israel were to be wiped out by the Muslims and we offered several million Jews a home here. You can bet the BBC would be throwing open the airwaves to challenge and question such an offer.

      Nobody respects this gutless knee bending either. It’s utterly pathetic.

    What a relief, and from beeb, of all things! On bbc2 Michael Portillo is in Singapore, a model of vision, achievement, creativity, cleanliness, hospitality and RACIAL HARMONY. Colonialism is celebrated! A WHITE statue of Stanford Raffles, quite untouched by graffiti, stands proudly in the centre of the futuristic, gleaming, crime-free city, rising from the swamps.
    Chinese, Malay, Whites, Indians, Punjabis, live together, build, work, achieve, co-operate, celebrate. Polite, kind, splendid people, getting on with each other and getting on with work. All this from little space, no mineral resources etc. Nobody seems to be looking for what is ‘owed’ to them, nobody is demanding, threatening destruction, etc. Hard work, initiative, setting up shop, is the scene.
    For the first time in my life, I think of one ethnic group that would probably ruin everything, were they to be introduced, just by being there: resentment, envy, blame, underachievement, crime and destruction would suddenly appear. A certain political philosophy would be injected. Violence would then probably destroy the peace, tranquility and harmony. The statue of Raffles would likely get vandalised, for starters.
    This is probably an unfair assessment. But, after the last ten days, one starts thinking strange thoughts.
    There is that word again: ‘unfair’. And presumably ‘unjust’? In need of overthrow/

    I think I’m living in an alternative universe . The 9pm BBC TV news portrays the madness in Whitehall as ‘minor ‘ – yet if you see what is on Twitter it bears no relation to what has happened .

    I broke my boycott of the monster BBC to witness the bias .It’s disgusting .

    If ever there is evidence of the bias of the BBC in lying about events – Christ the talking muppet described it as ‘largely peaceful ‘ – which involves the trivial matter of fully equipped riot plod with a full on charge by mounted police .

    I’ve seen the Sky coverage as well even it treats this incident as ‘minor ‘ .

    Maybe the Chinese virus lockdown restrictions have really affective the mental condition of the feral

    This violent disorder /riot is a test for the MSM – will the newspapers cover it ? Justify it ? Blame any one ? Support it ? Condemn it ?

    Meanwhile a useless Home Secretary spouts empty words on Twitter and the woke police commissioner is probably busy clapping for something whilst her cops are attacked . I can’t see either of these ‘ladies ‘ holding their offices much longer ……

      The Left -I think when you squeeze 6 million diverse (there is that word) people into such a tiny place, yet maintain order and build, build, build, you need ‘draconian’. There would hardly be space for our House of Lords with about nine hundred ‘noble’ members talking, talking, talking. Then the Commons. The vast administration. The palaces.
      I remember Lee Kuan Yew, who seems to have imposed the order required, seemingly ‘all by himself’. A professor wearing a tie (wow) explains the ‘how’ and ‘why’ to Michael. Lee was in Britain, and thought the NHS was a good idea. But when he took it back to S. he decided everyone HAD TO PAY IN a little. So nothing for nothing. Just medical work, no empire of bureaucracy and no worship of a health service. No automatic entitlement and therefore, no sense of entitlement. Maybe therefore no resentment?
      There is much food for thought here. Very much.
      I pose a question: could we do with a little ‘draconian’ right now, perhaps just for a little while? (Certainly not from Khan, a socialist. Bring in socialism, and the whole edifice would blow.)
      But you tell me; you were there.

        fakenewswatcher, I thought Singapore to be a very lovely place to visit on the handful of times that I did but also very strange, almost fake and plastic.
        It was, and probably still is, illegal to jaywalk from memory, to spit, to pick petals off flowers and no dropping of litter just for starters. All of which I agree with.
        But as a city/country it just seemed soulless. 😶
        But I did like it there!
