      When the US banksters funneled money to AH they didn’t announce it to the entire world on the radio. They did it clandestinely because the didn’t want people to realise they were playing both sides. Funny how their puppets today can announce on national TV they are going to carry on co-operating with the enemy and no one bats an eyelid. When will the morons in the West understand they are being played and their economies deliberately sabotaged?

    How we used to pity Russian people, dependent on their countries biased media..
    Now they’re the ones laughing at ours, here at Daily Telegraph’s
    defence editor, Con Coughlin:

      The Telegraph is now like the Graun, only without the mass public audience respect.

      Have they hired Femi yet as Studmuffin Editor for the Cogar section on how to get hair like Nancy Pelosi even when your hubby is in the cooler.

      Speaking of our tv pervasive Europhile…

      And the mad cat lady lawyer from the other day. Lovely couple.

      This cost of living crisis is biting hard.

    The Radio 4 World at One 13.00 hrs today .

    The BBC are making out that the general public, the ordinary Joe , the hoi poloi aren’t so concerned about immigration now .
    It’s slipped down the radar in the public’s concerns.

    Quick Beeboids , open a bottle of champagne before the sizes are returned to imperial measurements.
    But not so fast . Are the general public unconcerned about immigration as the Beeboids hopes and skews the news with ?

    What are the ordinary Joes first concerns ?
    The BBC doesn’t really tell us . Does climate change beat the cost of living crisis ?

    But the big question is
    Do these polls tell us what concerns the average public and what the avpub thinks can be done about it ?
    Or have the avpub given up on what he/she thinks the Powers That Be will do to address their concerns and know the PTB will override their concerns ?
    Thus give up worrying about a serious issue that TPTB will disregard as the serious issue ?
    The best way to decide is to have a proper referendum on the subject . Which is what we would have if we really had a democracy.

    Jerusalem Flag March: Israeli nationalists stream through Muslim Quarter

    ‘A wave of deadly attacks on Israelis by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs, and the deaths of dozens of Palestinians, including attackers, militants and civilians, by Israeli forces has fuelled anger on both sides.’

    Not quite accurate there BBC. Again.

    The attacks on Israelis were terrorism : random civilians hacked to death with axes in the street. The Palestinians who got killed were in the subsequent response against those who did it.

    Just reading that article and I’m not sure if I’m just sensitised to it now or the BBC are doing their usual trick of gradually moving the red line of the amount of bias in their articles. They don’t make any distinction now between clear acts of terrorism and the response they provoked. They causally mention ‘Gaza’s Hamas rulers fired rockets towards the city’ as a reponse to clashes with the police as if it is of no consequence. These are unguided explosives being deliberately sent to try and kill civilians. It’s very different to attacking a specific position : it’s terrorism.

    The BBC seem to be gradually seeding hate towards Israel and sympathy towards Palestinians. Why are they doing it ?. Is it really just to keep Muslims ‘on-side’ for their ideological battle against the Right ?.

      Yeah I know. It’s almost as if building a nation in someone else’s nation upsets the natives (and you can STFU about brown people and WW2). But carry on with your “the establishment loves sand niggaz” trope. They’ve spent nearly 2 decades bombing them with quiet complicit support from Auntie Beeb.

      Are you simply looking for things to get angry about? Weather’s nice out (rain counts as “nice” after mid-April) Why not have a coffee. What does Israel have to do with you? It’s ruddy miles away (*awaits Christian fundamentalist bollox*).

    Ukraine round-up: Zelensky in Kharkiv and a pro-Putin propaganda machine

    These are the stories which worry me most about Ukraine.

    ‘The US government appears close to sending a long-range multiple-rocket system (MLRS) to Ukraine.’

    These are not defensive weapons, they are offensive.

    ‘They would greatly boost the Ukrainians’ capabilities – even enabling them to hit targets inside Russia, though such action would risk drawing the US and its Nato allies into direct conflict with Russia.’

    So give them to Ukraine and let Zelensky decide whether to provoke WW3. What could possibly go wrong.

    Camberley: Second murder arrest after teenager dies in party stabbing

    ‘The force issued an appeal for any witnesses who may have seen “someone acting suspiciously in the area before the police were called last night, or a young male running from the scene south down Green Hill Road and into the neighbouring roads”.’

    I think a description of this party-goer would have been very useful considering how many people live there.

    Shame on all these hypocrites and their pro-black racism.


  12. Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

    Two bi-elections on June 23 .
    Tiverton and Honiton in Devon has eight candidates standing. Four of these are to the right of the Conservative Party. That’s Reform, Heritage, For Britain and Ukip.
    Wakefield in Yorkshire also has four choices on the right. Reform, Britain First, English Democrats and Ukip.
    The public is crying out for a party to the right of Bojo’s Tories, but they are not going vote for rag bag of unelectable factions.
    They will more likely vote against their interest for the Lib Dems.
    There will be good people in those minor parties but they are wasting their time and energy if they don’t amalgamate.
    This is Peoples Front of Judea territory. As the Lib Dems and Labour are now working together one would expect the minnows on the right to get the message after countless humiliations at the polls?
    I am proud of my British heritage but I am beginning to suspect
    we have a trifle more ancestors off the Golgafrinchan B Ark than I would wish.

    Media relatively silent on this one, wrong colour ?

    ‘This is why we need the 2nd amendment!’ West Virginia mystery woman is hailed as a hero for using legally-owned pistol to kill criminal armed with an AR-15-style rifle at a graduation party a day after Uvalde school shooting

    The unidentified woman shot and killed Dennis Butler on Wednesday in Charleston, West Virginia
    He showed up to a graduation party at the Vista View Apartment Complex
    Butler, a 37-year-old convicted felon, had an ‘AR-style assault rifle’
    It’s unclear what his motive was or if he even knew anyone at the event
    He started shooting then the woman pulled her gun out, according to police
    The incident went largely unnoticed in the wave of stories about Uvalde in Texas where a gunman slaughtered 19 kids and two teachers



    • JohnC says:

      It’s against the Democrat political agenda to use the incident to introduce more gun control and the bad man with the AR15 was black.

      Hence the BBC don’t want you to know about it so the article appeared 2 days late, omitted to tell us the guy was black and disappeared quickly.

      Not telling you full story to deliberately hide the truth is no different from lying. This is the most common way the BBC lie.


  14. JohnC says:

    While trying track down another BBC report where the murderer’s identity has clearly been hidden from us, I had a look at the BBC’s ‘London violence’ page.


    What struck me the most as I browsed who is doing what to who in our capital city was:

    1) How I don’t recall seeing many of those stories on the BBC front page – even though some would be headline news demanding government action along with protests by activists in other circumstances (ie if the guy who did it was white).

    2) How often to perpetrator’s ethnicity is not revealed – even when his identity is fully known and/or they are appealing for witnesses. In the few cases I manage to discover who did it, they are always BAME.

    I wonder to myself what is going on that this racial discrimination against whites is never mentioned. Are people too scared to mention it because the Leftists will call them racist or do they think it’s right to racially discriminate because blacks need some compensation for earlier racism (as I read somewhere else a while back).

    If it’s the latter, when does it end ?. Do the BBC and people on twitter decide ?. It seems Leftists think the law only applies if they agree it should. But if they decide the law does not fit their agenda, they do what they like and nobody dare argue because they will be destroyed by the mob.

    Once people start putting their ideological agenda above the law and what’s right, they always get worse one small step at a time. We all know where it ends : we’ve seen it many times throughout history. Like Hitler : the ‘far-right’ socialist.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I believe a long time ago a deal was done by some government to encourage ‘assimilation ‘ of the third world coloured folk .
      This was disseminated to the key areas of public life starting with the civil service – ranging through the Police and BBC.
      So negative ‘incidents ‘ involving coloured folk – Pakistani rape gangs – West Indian teenagers killing each other – would be played down as much as possible .

      Obviously such a doomed policy makes things worse – together with putting blame for stuff on whitee …

      It stems from the failure to get the assent of white people to have coloured third workers in Blighty – because – of course that would have never been attained ….

      This theory explains the deceit ‘ practices used by the BBC when such killings take place . The truth is still the truth …


      • JohnC says:

        I can believe it.

        But at the end of the day, all this different treatment of people based on their skin colour is pure racial discrimination and it’s illegal.

        But it seems the law only applies when it suits someone to apply it. A lot like Thailand actually. One of many similarities I have noticed since Brexit : we are every big as corrupt as them – we have just evolved a sophisticated system to cover it up.

        I wonder what the result would be if someone took the BBC or whoever to court for racial discrimination against white people. They would receive the full wrath and venom of the Leftist mob of course – but I wonder what justification the Judge would give to say it’s OK. Because they definitely would. Imagine all the claims by white actors who didn’t get parts in advertisements if it WAS declared illegal.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Well I discriminate all the time – a treat coloured folk as a threat unless proved otherwise – it’s a London survival thing . I’ve never been mugged by a whitee – x2 by coloured – so I apply common survival sense .

          I don’t engage with coloured folk – if I can avoid speaking to them – I do – I don’t care about them – they don’t care about me – I’m just a whitee – but you can label me if any name you like …

          … I have as much respect for laws these days as the current PM does ….

            @Fed at 8.16am I hate to say this about myself but I’m the same Fed, an incident from last year illustrates this beautifully. The shooting of Sasha Johnson and the inability of the “local community “ to come forward and identify the attackers. I’m ashamed to admit that when her mother appealed for people to come forward to help the police I smirked and thought I can’t see that happening.
            Seeing her in the bed with half her skull missing hasn’t stopped or brought anyone forward, unfortunately you live by the sword you die by the sword or live in limbo in her case. All of the Beeb articles are attempts to get information since May last year and after the court case was dropped.

    I was in a job interview when the manager handed me his laptop and said, “I want you to try to sell this to me.” So I put it under my arm, walked out of the building, and went home.

      A proper ‘free press’ would now be asking where this steady stream of convenient ‘leaked’ information is coming from.

      It’s reached ridiculous levels of pettiness and is now clearly a politcial vendetta to remove our PM. The focus should shift on to who that is.

      We all know why it won’t. It’s the Left showing us what dirty scum they are again.


  19. Fedup2 says:


    Tricky one for the BBC – lots of hot air from the Frau running the ReichEU – but the reality is that countries close to Russia – Germany – Hungary – are not playing ball on oil – and certainly are being slow is supplying promised weapons …

    So with a bit of luck the EU will be shown to be less than united … putin might exploit this further by turning down supply again and putting up oil prices – making more money for less output ..
    Old arguments about the wrongness of being dependant on a nasty creature like putin are buried …..

    But the noises of Ukrainian support from the EU and its’ mouthpiece – the BBC will be loud and positive ….

    I have lived in the borough of Barnet in North London all
    of my life. And mostly in the West Finchley , Woodside Park
    area of the largest population . over 400,00 borough in the
    Maggie Thatcher who was MP for Finchley for many years
    will be turning over in her grave when seeing what has happened
    to her genteel suburban constituency .
    Barnet is one of the many boroughs that Tony Blair succeeded
    with his demographic policies. In North Finchley you could
    well be in Tirana Albania. With all the delights that go with
    that. I have only been mugged once at a cash dispenser. But
    I must be fair. My wife was mugged by a Romanian at
    another cash machine..
    Of course we have the occasional stabbings to death . The
    last one being a couple of days ago in North Finchley.
    Our local MP the very good hard working Theresa Villiers
    days are numbered. As Labour for the first time won the
    borough elections.
    Yes the BBC would be so proud of Barnet . One of your prime
    examples of how good “multiculturalism” has worked out
    in Barnet. Without doubt there are no one better than the Albanians at running brothels. As for cash machine robbery . The
    Romanians are the equivalent to what Real Madrid are at winning the Champions League. As for stabbings, of course
    you don’t need to be an Einstein to suss out who is numero
    uno in this field.
    Well done Tony Blair and the BBC you succeeded . Even
    better than a toothless budgie!!

      Foscari – I share your concern – with the coming recession – depression – now being put off for a few months by government ‘handouts ‘ -the situation is going to get far worse .

      …With crime levels amongst the third world – I’d include Romanians and Albanians in this – going up muchly .I use ‘third world ‘ not as short hand for ‘coloured ‘ but for primitives ..
      And cities are becoming primitive …

      Just back to the recession – I m trying to work out how the combination of increases in prices – intrerest rates and inflation – are going to be handled by ordinary people. ?

      How long will money squirrelled away during covid last ? Particularly as service industry jobs disappear quickly … with unemployment jumping at the end of 2022 …

    Grantham Margaret Thatcher statue vandalised weeks after egging

    I was reading about how it was rejected for Parliament square and instead a statue of Millicent Fawcett (no, I don’t either) will go up instead because putting one of Thatcher up ‘could attract “civil disobedience and vandalism”.’

    Proof (if more were needed) how nobody hates like the Left. And how they use violence and intimidation against people who do not do what they want.

  28. AsISeeIt says:

    Due warning – I must “red flag” some controversial hot takes in this edition – views which some readers hereabouts may decry.

    Inevitably, the quacks strike back: ‘NHS: Calls to fine patients who miss GP visits MILLIONS of wasted GP appointments have sparked calls for patients to be fined if they fail to show up… Dr Sarah Jarvis, a GP and clinical director, said: “GP appointments are very precious because there aren’t enough of us.” Dr Jarvis said she supported in principle the idea of fining patients a small amount – such as £5 or £10 – for wasting doctors’ time. Almost four-and-a-half million consultation slots have been recorded as “did not attends” this year, costing the cash-strapped NHS about £175million‘ (Daily Express) – perhaps some of those no-shows were too ill to drag themselves out to the GP surgery – or perhaps they’ve died still waiting for their appointment? Figures on that please, NHS?

    They say Hillsborough, I say Heysel.

    The medias’ golden boys, those who travel overseas to support Liverpool FC get a very different treatment to your average English football fan abroad: ‘Seeing red at French farce. Club and British police deny UEFA claims that thousands tried to get in without valid tickets‘ (freebie giveaway Metro)

    Perhaps our media shouldn’t have set their own hair alight over this: ‘Euro 2020 final: Where ticketless fans breached Wembley Stadium security before England v Italy match. Social media analysis reveals security breaches… prompting violent clashes.‘ (Sky News – By Kieran Devine and Adam Parker, data and forensics unit)

    Our media helps project fans’ bad reputation abroad before them – sadly without the subtle nuance due to those special sentimental sensibilities of our Liverpudlian friends.

    Plaster saints in red shirts and shell-suits? ‘Are white trainers still cool?‘ (Times2); ‘Home working has turned us into a nation of sloppy dressers‘ (Jane Shilling in the Telegraph) – home working from Liverpool, I wonder? “Gizza job. Go on, gizza job. I can do that.” – please don’t headbutt the laptop – that was Yossa Hughes: ‘…in Alan Bleasdale’s classic BBC drama Boys from the Blackstuff, passed almost overnight into the language under the first Thatcher government‘ (Independent)

    Riot cops even tear-gassed my son, 9. Brits tell of brutal police tactics, attacks by local gangs & UEFA ticket shambles‘ (Mirror) – what in the heart of the glorious EU, surely not?

    Even Tories these days know when to don the red shirt and dog whistle Abide with Me: ‘Champions League. UK government calls for investigation into Paris chaos‘ (‘i’)

    Jamie Carragher. It’s disgraceful to blame Liverpool fans‘ (Telegraph) – you’ve been told.

    As for the formerly patriotic Times – to missquote George Orwell – they would be more comfortable standing to sing Ferry, Cross The Mersey than be caught stealing from a poor box: ‘Football’s night of shame. Uefa under fire after Liverpool fans tear-gassed at European final

    Speaking of patriotism, the left-leaning ‘i’ struggles to reconcile its conflicted attitudes: ‘How to host an eco-friendly street party + Jubilee is a chance to reclaim the Union flag‘ – once every 70 years?

    Crying shame! How could French police tear-gas Liverpool fan, 9‘ (Express)

    Perhaps much of the tear-gar tears are because they lost the Champions League final?

    No, really, they do say Hillsborough: ‘Families say Paris had echoes of Hillsborough‘ (Guardian) – of course that’s the trump card – the equivalent of playing the race card – speaking of which…

    Farewell to champion of champions Lester Piggot 1935-2022‘ (Sun) – many was the day Lester went through the card – as they say in racing circles.

    Farewell Lester… the housewives’ choice. From national hero to a tax villian to comeback legend… the life of a shy, complex racing genius‘ (Mirror) – speaking of tax evasion: ‘HMRC cannot put figure on tax evasion‘ (FT) – Frankly, I’d be more concerned and suspicious if they could.

    When I say race card…

    Home Office report decries 30 years of racist laws‘ (Guardian) – decries… that’s a new one. But let’s not get distracted by the Gruan’s unfamiliar semantics – let’s think about how many millions of ethnic minorities have scrambled to settle in Britian over the last 30 years… despite the UK’s institutional racism. Just imagine how many would have flocked here had we been just a bit more welcoming. I jest, of course.

    UK opens doors to world’s top graduates’ (Telegraph) – ‘cos us locals are thuggish work-shy thickos, right? Except for Liverpool fans.

    The left-leaning coronaphobic ‘i’ newspaper is on full alert for action stations: ‘Exclusive. Covid inquiry to start in days‘ – the anticipation is agonising – perhaps I should book an appointment with my GP?

    Meanwhile, during the apparent sparse news interim period, the ‘i’ has to content itself with anti-Brexit anti-Boris headlines: ‘PM plans bonfire of EU laws to appease rebel MPs‘ – or in other words to appease 17-million-odd Leave voters?

    The ‘i’ adopts their awkward west indian patois-style for the sad long litany of Brussels’ benefits to mankind: ‘i is told regulations most likely to be repealed will cover the enviroment, workers’ rights, transport, tax and health and safety‘ – wow, and the Remainers told us the EU only contributed a small percentage of UK law.

    UK law: What proportion is influenced by the EU?‘ (Full Fact Update 6 June 2016): ‘There’s no single definition of ‘UK law’… 13% is likely to be too low, in reality, but 62% is much too high‘ – sit on the fence, why don’t you? Fact is – many of our laws were being made by unaccountable foreigners. You know, the sort that tear-gassed our friendly scousers.

    But don’t worry, EU-inspired health and safety rules-armed little Hitlers – many WFH – some turning up with a hi-viz jacket and clipboard will continue to measure every move you make: ‘Jubilee “killjoys” warn against unauthorised street parties‘ (Telegraph)

    Our friends sur le continent…

    Bliar’s ‘progressive-solutions-r-us’ conference planned for 30 June is already getting coverage.



    The Future of Britain conference, set to take place on June 30, is hosted by former BBC broadcasters Jon Sopel and Emily Maitlis, according to several people involved in its planning. It is intended to discuss progressive solutions to the biggest issues facing Britain, including the economy, technology and climate change.

    The Britain Project, a new group said to take its inspiration from Macron’s LREM, is holding fortnightly meetings to organize the conference and discuss wider plans.

    Blair has been closely involved with the project and mentioned it in a keynote speech he gave in January, when he said the planned conference would seek to “set out a broad direction for the future of Britain.”

    Notable in his absence from any of the discussions is Peter Mandelson, the architect of the New Labour movement, who remains close to Blair. An insider says he is focused on getting Labour into government.

    This is sure to get lots of bBC attention.

      The fire started in a Hotpoint brand fridge-freezer in a fourth-floor apartment. The flames traveled from the kitchen and up the exterior side of the building, which was filled with 300 low-income residents. From there, the flames moved fast, engulfing the other sides of the building as well.

      Tenants had repeatedly complained about electrical power surges causing appliances to smoke and such a surge may have set the fridge-freezer on fire. The local authority knew about complaints and had paid tenants compensation for damaged appliances. Nonetheless, the surges continued. Judith Blakeman, a local Labour councillor, said the surges affected many appliances including fridges. Blakeman maintains that the cause of the surges was never solved.[159]

      On 27 November 2018, evidence given to the Grenfell Tower inquiry by electrical investigating engineer J. Duncan Glover suggested that in Flat 16 the fridge-freezer compressor relay wiring was not tightly fitted. In his view, this probably created additional electrical resistance leading to overheating and igniting the outer plastic insulation of the wire at 90 °C. Glover described the state of the fusebox following a short circuit to the compressor. During questioning, he compared US and UK safety standards, noting that US regulations require a steel back to the fridge to help contain a fire, whereas UK fridges were allowed to have only a plastic backing.[160]

      The Guardian saw a certificate from the building inspectors’ organisation, Local Authority Building Control (LABC), which stated that the chosen insulation for the refit should only be used on tall buildings with fibre cement panels, which do not burn. Combustible panels with polyethylene were put up on top of insulation known as Celotex RS5000, made from polyisocyanurate, which burns when heated, giving off toxic cyanide fumes. Despite the above, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea certified the Grenfell tower building work as allegedly conforming to “the relevant provisions”. Council building inspectors visited the site 16 times from August 2014 to July 2016. Kooltherm, a phenolic insulation, was also used on Grenfell. Kooltherm was never tested with polyethylene core aluminium panels according to the manufacturer. The manufacturer, Kingspan, “would be very surprised if such a system … would ever pass the appropriate British Standard 8414 large-scale test”. Kooltherm’s LABC certificate states phenolic products, “do not meet the limited combustibility requirements” of building regulations.[166]

  41. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    When the bbbc mention Linton on Ouse where they want to send 1500 ‘asylum seekers’ they say the local population will be outnumbered something like 2 or 3 : 1

    That sounds a bit bad but look at it another way.

    If Linton has a population of 1200 then it will be fair to say the about 600 will be female.
    From that 600 about a third will be aged from about 10 – 35
    From this 200 many will be married or will stay inside.

    The 1500 male 16-40 year olds (probably over 90% of them) will then give a ratio something like 10-15 Somalian/Afghan/etc for each of the girls/wimmin.
    Add on the local boys as well where it would have been roughly 1 : 1 ratio.

    So then, can anyone see where any trouble might come from.

    I think many of the villagers will sell up and go (white flight) but there’s a problem. Who would want to move there.
    The house prices would collapse and then you would only get other enrichers buying up these cheap houses which would result in more villagers leaving.

    In a couple of years time it will have fallen.
    Is there any flaw in this reasoning?


    • digg says:

      Emmanuel, the only flaw in your reasoning is that the people in power and in the border agency, law firms etc. don’t care, just keep them well away from London is the only plan they have. They have a problem and want to offload it, unfortunately for Linton on Ouse they have drawn the short straw.

      A matter of time before there are multiple Linton on Ouse’s out there and all where opposition is weak or can be ignored and a matter of time before the first rapes start. The Government are practically setting this up as a certainty waving the foxes into the chicken coop.

      10 immediate flights to Africa would have sorted it out, protected Linton on Ouse and slowed the next wave.


      • Flotsam says:

        Linton on Ouse will house 1500 illegal immigrants. Sounds like it might solve the problem? Think again, that’s only one month’s intake.

    • Doublethinker says:

      I think that you are correct. If this plan goes ahead life in the village will be intolerable. Even if the invaders were kept inside the camp with no access outside I still think that the village would have huge problems. Of course the human rights lawyers would howl and within weeks the government would be forced to open the gates. But we all know that the invaders will cause non stop trouble. Lock up your daughters until you can get them well away .
      If the native population wants to stop his sort of thing then serious civil disobedience is the only way. Meekly accepting what the liberal left want to do to us must stop and we need tens of thousands of protesters at the RAF base showing the government that we will no longer tolerate our country being invaded without protest.

    “School grub” takes on a new meaning in Wales.

    Elsewhere in Wales I see (or rather I don’t!) that the putrid Reach plc of Wales Online ownership (some call it Cardiff’s answer to Viz) have it seems a totally fake journalist who specialises in f-wit clickbait garbage – usually of the scary variety. These stables of non existent writers hiding fake news purveyor teams seem to be getting more common – I wonder at the Kieran Doody who’s a regular fake news pooper for NewsQuest UK.

    Surely only a matter of time before we see some virtual correspondents at the BBC?


    • harry142857 says:

      Kieran Doody often appears in my local newspaper, the Reading Chronicle.
      Unfortunately they have about six regular reporters, average age about 22, know nothing about the history or geography of the town, and whose articles are mainly copy and paste jobs, and/or full of basic spelling and grammatical errors.

      Expect this is now typical of most regional papers.

      The principal ritual of Rastafari is the smoking of ganja, also known as marijuana or cannabis.[223] Among the names that Rastas give to the plant are callie, Iley, “the herb”, “the holy herb”, “the grass”, and “the weed”.[224] Cannabis is usually smoked during groundings,[194] although some practitioners also smoke it informally in other contexts.[225] Some Rastas smoke it almost all of the time, something other practitioners regard as excessive,[226] and many practitioners also ingest cannabis in a tea, as a spice in cooking, and as an ingredient in medicine.[227] However, not all Rastas use ganja;[228] abstainers explain that they have already achieved a higher level of consciousness and thus do not require it.[229]

        Ahmadis suffer vicious persecution around the world. The main source of fuel for that persecution is in Pakistan, but what happens in Pakistan does not stay in Pakistan.

        I know that from my experience in the Yorkshire market town of Batley. In August 1985, when I was 11 years old, my parents organised an inter-faith meeting in the town hall. It was interrupted and disturbed when, according to West Yorkshire police, more than 1,000 extremists, led by Pakistani hate preachers funded by the Pakistani state, were bused in from around the country. The mob brutally attacked my English mother and my father, a dermatologist; my eldest brother and I; and a Welsh Ahmadi schoolteacher who was with us. My first cousin, a GP, was by chance driving through the market town that day. He saw the mob and saw his family and friends being attacked, so he stopped. He was recognised, pulled from his vehicle and savagely beaten up.
