    Hainault: Boy, 14, killed in sword attack

    This story is an excellent example of just how racially biased the BBC, Guardian and other Left-leaning MSM have become. They have no fear about how far they push it any longer. Nobody dare complain because THEY will be labelled as the racists.

    I don’t recall seeing photos and videos of a blade attacker in the very opening articles of a story for a long time. Can it really be a conincidence that he is also white ?. Especially as we have observed this kind of racist bias here many times in the past.

    This one has gone through the roof with both Khan and Sunak releasing statements. This before they even know who did it or why.

    Meanwhile on the Evening Standard crime page, I see 5 other stories about murders by BAME. Not a single one to be seen on the BBC.

    And just watch how quickly this story wil disappear if he’s any kind of immigrant.

    How many times have we seen this racist bias by the BBC now ?. What did happen to Sashsa Johnson anyway ?. Her story was huge but dropped the instant they learned it wasn’t whitey who shot her.

    Case dropped against ‘traumatised’ former Met officer

    ‘Former superintendent Novlett Robyn Williams, 59, was accused of failing repeatedly to comply with her sex offender notification requirements.’

    Believe it or not, the case has been dropped because she is extremely upset with her ‘legal ordeal’. No other reason whatsoever.

    ‘Judge Richard Marks KC said the mental health report made “sad and unhappy reading”.’

    ‘He said he could “well imagine her being completely traumatised by the conviction”, adding: “Nobody could describe her as being a sex offender in the true meaning of that expression.”‘

    ‘But added: “As far as I am concerned, she leaves the court with no stain on her character.”‘

    Just in case you are wondering, here’s what she looks like. A rising star in the Met who we only now discover has severe mental issues:

    One can only wonder if the treatment would have been the same if she was a white male.

    Southern Lebanon: BBC sees air strike destruction in deserted towns

    The BBC chasing empathy using Muslim victims again.

    And again without any real inclination or interest to examine why. We get the one-liner that it’s because of Hezbollah terrorists – but that’s only because they have to. And it shows.

    ‘As the BBC team was filming, what seemed to be Israeli drones could be heard in the sky. Moments later, plumes of thick black smoke appeared in the distance, an apparent Israeli strike. It was not possible to know what had been hit.’
    Deliberately written to blame Israel without actually saying it was them. Since when was ‘seemed to be’ a valid claim for any kind of proper journalist ?.

    Then of course it is pure empathy focussing on individual ‘victims’ and their heartbreaking stories about how they cannot go home because of Israel. I fully expect the vast majority of them support the terrorists as do the people in Gaza. But the BBC don’t go anywhere near telling us that.

    Meanwhile the UN peacekeeping force why by definition has utterly failed has this to say:
    ‘”We see many people are tired of the situation on this side of the border and on the other side as well. I think it’s time for peace,” he says.’
    Oh – is that enough reason ?. Ranks up there with Judi Dench’s reason to Remain : ‘Isn’t it just better if we are together ?’.

    It’s always the same with the Left : if it suits their agenda it’s all about the agressors. If that argument doesn’t have a leg to stand on (as in this case) they just focus on empathy for the victims.

    Totally pathetic and as far from what the media are supposed to do as you can get.

    Lets see who wrote this lopsided rubbish. Another MSN and Yahoo veteran who seems to exclusively report about Muslim victims:

      . . . .

      Open drug use and increasing anti-social behaviour have left residents of St Austell “exasperated”. Graphic photos on social media have led to a petition being set up to “formally address the heroin problem”. We went to Cornwall’s largest town to talk to people about the situation.

      There are “shoplifters and drug addicts everywhere”, according to a retail worker in the high street, and extra police have been drafted in.


  6. AsISeeIt says:

    As previously noted hereabouts, some white man is on the naughty step because he has done something very bad with a weapon type that’s soon to be on our ever-lengthening banned list.

    So as Victorian poet and playwright Robert Browning once wrote: “God’s in His heaven— All’s right with the world!”

    And as the low circulation Guardian once again secures top spot in the BBC online press line-up – our BBC breathlessly relays, re-ephasizes, illustrates, highlights and underscores the approved headlines:

    Almost all of Wednesday’s front pages are dominated by the news that a 14-year-old boy was killed after an attacker armed with a sword went on the rampage in Hainault, north-east London. The Guardian has the headline “22 minutes of horror” (BBC) – further comment would seem superfluous

    – except to say the BBC’s online news map of the Ukraine war (last updated 21 February) has now completely disappeared from the featured items under the War in Ukraine clickable tab – sadly, gone the way of the Daily Express now lost and lamented “United with the People of Ukraine” masthead motto

    …oh, and the BBC have a new major news theme clickable tab: India Election – is if we’re interested

    ‘I could not protect her’: A dad mourns his child killed in the Channel

    So either this man has gone straight to the BBC or the BBC have actively sought him out in order to produce yet another 100% empathy article which reports everything this Iraqi illegal immigrant tells them as gospel truth.

    Here’s the news BBC : he will lie as easily as stab you in the back. You are the most gullible of idiots. This story has one single solution : stop the boats. The only way to do that is to take them back to France so these people know they are risking their lives for nothing. They will ALL instantly stop if we do that.

    But the BBC don’t go anywhere near any of the truths behind these immigrants. We are never told how most are young, male economic migrants who dump their passports and mobile phones as soon as the UK rescue ship is in sight.

    This article has no actual news content whatsoever. It’s nothing but virtue-signalling empathy from people who live in a false reality bubble. Of course it’s tragic the little girl was suffocated by the others on the boat. Why did none of them help her ?.

    We would get a much better idea of what we are importing if the BBC focused on things like that.

        Millions … in benefits – health – education …..

        Sink the boats ( or at least return them – Irish style )


        • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

          The Today Programme from 8 a.m. confirmed why I’m right not to listen to it any more than very occasionally. The lead story in the headlines was the drowned 7-year-old (Sarah Hashimi) and then we had about 15 min’s from 08:10 on this story and people-smuggling more generally.

          Why is this even UK news, let alone the number one item? The father, whose daughter was born in Belgium, put her in danger by his decision to get on a boat illegally and it was the selfish people cramming onto it which led to her death. It is nothing to do with UK and occurred outside of it.

          What sickens me is the focus on one individual case, when many more people are being killed right now in Ukraine, Africa, Gaza, etc. No big questions are asked, such as the effect on the “host” countries of (potentially unlimited) immigration by anyone who “just wants a better life” or education for their kids. It’s all emotion, with the wet useless Justin Webb failing to dig deeper.

          It all reminds me of the Alan Kurdi drowning a few years ago. Our gov’t was not explicitly blamed this time (it was people smugglers) but the implication is clear that “something must be done” [passive voice, of course!] which, translated, means the UK tax-payers will need to fork out even more money to put right other people’s problems. This is open borders internationalism for you: no limit to the supposed moral liability of our people for everyone else.

          I’m sick of the BBC’s emotional blackmail and lies, always taking at face value the words of criminals and liars, and never joining the dots to show the pattern.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      Let me correct that for you, BBC:

      ‘Irresponsible father, encouraged by the government, BBC and NGOs, causes death of daughter in French waters whilst attempting to illegally enter Britain’.

      Weep for the death of a child, but have icy hatred for all the others.


  8. JohnC says:

    Just been browsing the BBC site looking for some picture of these ‘anti-semetic’ students who are protesting at all these US universities. By ‘anti-semetic’ we mean ‘racist’ of course, but we don’t use the nasty word when it’s against the Jews for some reason I can’t fathom.

    And much to my amazement, I was unable to find any ‘area shots’ where I can see large groups of protestors and the demographic of the people involved.

    Instead it’s all picture of the police or close-ups of individual protestors (usually white girls). It all instantly reminded of all the looting by the BLM ‘protestors’. We rarely got any pictures at all of the actual criminals doing the theiving. We just got pictures of the police dealing with it.

    This is exactly the same racist cover-up by the MSM. BBC included because they are right up there with the worst of them : CNN, MSN etc. Not a single jounralistic ethic between them.

        The lower end of the average salary in Rwanda is about £750 a year – so he’s been given 4 years salary just for going.

        And of course he will just leave Rwanda and come back to Europe with 3 grand in his pocket. You can be 100% certain the BBC will not tell us he has absconded when they send a useless clone out to interview him after the first few months.

        This is the second reference that I seen on the site about exercising caution in what we post because plod may be monitoring the site.
        It has been a theoretical threat to our freedom to speech on the site for several years but is there now solid evidence that the site is being monitored ?
        To have realistic cause to be worried about writing the sort if things that appear on this site and so to be forced to self censor is profoundly NOT the England I grew up in.
        I loath what we have become or rather what has been done to us.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Double – I’ve no evidence of monitoring – but I reckon ‘community tension ‘ is monitored via sites like this – although I think this would be on the very ‘soft ‘ list compared to the anger elsewhere .

          I suppose posters’ IP addresses and the like are cross referenced elsewhere .

          To me government policy – using the bbc – is to repress the anger of British people seeing their country destroyed in front of them – having Huge population increases spreading like a cancer across the country – and putting off the possibility of resisting .
          ‘Some ‘ – such as me – thinks we have already crossed that point – Muslims and other aliens are now in charge – with only disregard or dismissal of the way the British choose to live ( whether it’s good or bad ) and see their destiny as turning UK into a strict Islamic state ….

          Note to 77 Brigade Fedup File – check for his activity on other sites ….

          BTW – on this one my ‘caution ‘ mention was meant in jest because plod are for ever telling people in such circumstances not to ‘comment ‘.
          Comment – should be free – and it’s no place of plod to control speech ….

    Around 0715 on the subject of the one single Rwanda returnee he ‘interviewed ‘ ( hahaha) a woman from Leigh Day solicitors. This was clearly meant to imply some sort of impartial expertise. It was of course nothing of the sort. Just google ‘Leigh Day asylum’ to see where they are coming from.


    Disingenuous as ever, no-one at Toady thought to mention any of this. Keep Schtum was clearly the directive. We were thus then treated to an unapologetic ‘let them all in’ political tirade masquerading as legal expertise.

    ‘This was my last option,” he said, appealing to the British government for sympathy and support.’

    Naturally not forthcoming so he took to the boat and his daughter died…it’s our fault she died. He didn’t want handouts…just schooling and housing and medical care and all the other services that he would claim for his three kids…and then no doubt try to bring the rest of his family over.

    This isn’t a news story, it’s propaganda…note there’s no explanantion of why he fled Iraq or why he couldn’t go back…or that there’s no context or wider exploration of the issues, just a long story that’s shaped to tug at your heart strings….no investigation of how safe Iraq is or how such open door policies, if his family can come here what’s to stop all Iraqis coming here in theory…or all people of the world who claim to be ‘threatened’?, no, and there never is, idea of the damage mass immigration does to a country, its society, infrastructure, stability and trust.

    Imagine that after any one of the numerous Muslim terrorist attacks in our country that people had decided to protest at various Muslim locations such as mosques, schools or Islamic cultural centres and the police moved in and cleared out the protestors and arrested many of them do you think the BBC would be suggesting that ‘Critics might say that this is a heavy handed attack on freedom of speech’?

    I don’t think so…the BBC would be filling the airwaves with outraged comment about the Far-Right, racists and Islamophobes.

    However mass pro-Palestinian protests in the US that make life very uncomfortable and fearful for Jewish students are fine, as they are here where the streets of London are a no-go zone for Jews thanks to Khan’s hate marches.

    Can’t say I’ve ever heard the BBC saying the police hounding the EDL and Tommy Robinson and using force against them was ‘a heavy handed attack on freedom of speech.’ but if you try to close down colleges and intimidate Jews on behalf of Muslims it’s OK.

    ‘The view from Columbia 36 hours ago: A sense of foreboding

    Nomia Iqbal

    BBC News, Columbia University

    More than 36 hours ago, we were inside the Columbia campus.

    We’d heard that protesters in the encampment on the lawn had been told to clear by 14:00 local time (18:00 GMT) on Tuesday.

    Media started lining up outside as police erected barriers, with some officers carrying zip wires. There was a sense that something was coming.

    When we got inside the encampment itself, it was peaceful – protesters were bathing in the sun, doing school work on their laptops and making sure everyone was fed.

    Some were worried police would come in again – but others suggested they wouldn’t, given the controversy that ensued after riot police arrested students on 18 April.

    Dozens of faculty linked arms to guard the entrance of the encampment. There was a real sense of “the police better not try this again”.

    Before we left the campus on Monday night, we heard negotiations between students and the university administration had broken down.

    But Mahmoud Khalil, lead negotiator and a Columbia student, told us he was optimistic they could get back on track.

    On Tuesday we woke up to news that a building inside Columbia had been broken into and occupied, and negotiations fell apart even faster.

    Khalil later told us he had been suspended from Columbia. A Palestinian from Syria, he is reliant on a visa to be here. He said he had been promised protections given his position as a negotiator – but he is now unsure about what might lies ahead.’

    And the BBC are VERY quick to blame pro-Israel supporters. Straight away we get:
    ‘On social media, there are reports that pro-Israel demonstrators started attacking the pro-Palestinian camp in the night.’
    Reports by who BBC ?. Any evidence they ARE pro-Israel protestors at this point ?.

    Looking around the net, some sites are claiming these are agitators who have come in to start some violence. And who are the ones who are most likely to do that – posing as pro-Israel protestors ?. Antifa ?. BLM ?. All credible options but the BBC will avoid that subject until there is proof.

    Get the police in with Tasers and arrest the whole lot.

    LOL….the government opens the doors and speeds through refugee decisions in order to gaslight the public by clearing the backlog the BBC complains that giving them immigration status makes them homeless…..

    ‘As the government strove to meet Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s end-of-2023 deadline for processing all asylum claims made before July 2022, the Home Office also ramped up the number of decisions made on applications, making more in the last six months of 2023 than in the two years before that.

    But the record levels of grants left more refugee families facing homelessness.’

    The BBC tries to suggest that the idea that ‘refugees’ fleeing oppression in the UK due to Rwanda threats is false…..however its own example proves it true…and shows that the ‘refugee’ is just an economic migrnats out for ‘opportunitities’…

    ‘The BBC spoke to a 22-year-old man from India who is living in one of the tents. He said he had been studying in the UK but his visa had expired and he had left because “they made strict rules”.

    He said he had travelled to Northern Ireland by ferry and then got on a bus to Dublin, saying “I came for good opportunities”. ‘

    The Telegraph also backs up the story that the economic migrants fear being sent to Rwanda…

    ‘Sitting on a makeshift bed and hiding his face behind the flap of his tent, Mr Mhammed tells how he fled from Britain to Ireland to avoid deportation to Rwanda. He was among the first migrants to be notified by letter that he would be sent to the East African country after he arrived in the UK on a small boat in 2022.’

    BBC is in a fix eh?….tries to say ‘Rwanda’ will never work and so tries to disprove the truth…and has to somehow back the Irish government as it tries to deport ‘refugees’ back to the UK…which it declared an ‘unsafe country’ for migrants….but at the same time say how evil and racist and heartless the Brits are for wanting to refuse to let ’em all in here.

    Once you make your organisation a mouthpiece for a certain narrative you get in a bit of a bind as the truth confounds the lies you tell….and you have to twist and turn and con and lie to the public in order to hide your deceits.

    Astonishing that the likes of the BBC thinks this is in any way sustainable or manageable.

    LOL….contrast how the BBC reports the police moving protestors in the US with how they report ‘refugees’ being moved in Dublin.

    It’s all very low key and explanatory…the BBC wanting you to understand that the Irish only have the ‘refugees” best interests at heart….imagine this in Britain if we cleared the streets and then moved them on to yet more tents….or, heaven forbid, a plush barge with load of facilities…..

    ‘Asylum seekers who were camping outside a government office in central Dublin have been moved by officials.

    Hundreds of international protection applicants had been in a makeshift camp outside the International Protection Office on Mount Street for months.

    They were taken by bus to alternative accommodation – understood to be other tents – on Saturday morning.

    The Taoiseach (Irish PM) Leo Varadkar told RTÉ News the tents had been moved for “health and safety reasons”.

    Speaking from Washington DC, where he is taking part in St Patrick’s Day celebrations, Mr Varadkar told the Irish broadcaster that the alternative site had sanitary facilities and showers, while the original site did not.

    There has been criticism of the conditions the people have been living in.

    RTÉ has reported that rubbish and damaged tents have been left behind at the city-centre site, which has no sanitation.’

    Ah yes…so lovely…

    ‘In a statement the The Department of Integration said those who had accepted the offer would be given food, personal toiletries, toilet and shower facilities at the site.

    The department said it would engage with the Irish health service to “ensure the wellbeing of those on site”.

    The Irish refugee council said on X (formerly Twitter) that the move was welcome news but that they hoped the people had been taken to “appropriate accommodation where they can recuperate”.’

    PC Mohammed Adil, 26, was charged after an investigation was carried out by Counter Terrorism Policing North East into messages shared on WhatsApp.

    He is charged with two counts of publishing an image in support of a proscribed organisation, specifically Hamas, contrary to section 13 of the Terrorism Act.

    PC Adil, based in Calderdale, is currently suspended from West Yorkshire Police. He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.ENDS –

  29. pugnazious says:

    Not an analysis you will ever find on the BBC…you know it already but ‘Humza Useless'[as named by his own sister], was a continuing, long drawn out disaster for Scotland….but he’s brown and Muslim, and glory of glories married to a Palestinian….the BBC must have thought he walked on water…..

    ‘ANDREW NEIL: The fall of Humza Useless means independence is dead for a generation. The only legacy…’

    ‘The resignation of Scottish First Minister Humza Yousaf is more than just the demise of a hapless nonentity who was never up to the job anyway.

    It is a milestone marking the end, at last, of the SNP’s arrogant domination of Scottish politics for almost two decades. The Nationalists now face defeat in Westminster and Holyrood elections.

    At the same time, it was becoming clear that her government was making an unholy mess of the things that really mattered to Scots, like schools, hospitals and roads. No wonder she scuttled for the exit before the roof fell in, bequeathing Yousaf a weak hand which he proceeded to play badly.

    Nobody should be surprised by this. Yousaf made a hash of everything he touched in government but, so shallow is the Holyrood gene pool, he could always count on being promoted to his next level of incompetence.

    Like many an over-confident public school boy who never had a proper job outside politics, he seemed to think he could glide through life without being overburdened by homework or preparation.

    He is by no means a bad man, or even nasty. But vanity and stupidity can be a fatal cocktail.

    As transport minister he failed to deliver two ferries for Scotland’s poorly-served western islands which were meant to become operational on his watch. (Years late and tens of millions over budget they have still to start service.)

    He made no progress in turning the A9, Scotland’s most dangerous road, into a dual carriageway. But he did become the first ever transport minister to be pulled over for driving without insurance.

    As justice minister, he fathered the ludicrous hate crime legislation which has tarnished Scotland’s global reputation for free speech and became a national joke on implementation.

    As health minister he left Scotland’s NHS in even worse shape than he found it, which was quite an achievement since he had taken over during the pandemic. The recent Covid inquiry hearings revealed a health minister out of his depth.

    Despite far greater funding than the English NHS, barely one significant health target was met while he was in charge and now, for the first time, private healthcare is booming north of the border.

    A track record of failure like this should have disqualified him from becoming First Minister. But it didn’t. He had Sturgeon’s blessing, he was amiable, young and progressive. His sister had once dubbed him ‘Humza Useless’. He proceeded to live up to the nickname she gave him.

    The SNP was in turmoil by the time Nicola Sturgeon stepped down, with membership in freefall and the police all over the party like a rash, says Andrew Neil

    ‘I will not trade my principles to stay in power,’ he said in his resignation statement yesterday. In fact, he has no principles. He merely mouthed fashionable progressive platitudes, which went unchallenged in the Left-wing echo chamber he inhabited. It made him inclined to go along with every madcap scheme the SNP’s Green coalition partners proposed.

    His political touch was tenuous. He pitched himself as ‘Continuity Sturgeon’ just as her reputation was being trashed.

    He hitched himself to the gender self-identification zealots, promoted by the Greens, even though they had already done much to undermine Sturgeon’s standing with a Scottish public which is much more socially conservative than its political elite. He bought into impossible cuts in climate emission standards by 2030, requiring the hugely unpopular removal of one million gas boilers.

    He brought a slapstick, Keystone Cops element to the corridors of power. The SNP camper van seized by the police and the police tent erected on Sturgeon’s garden had already made Scotland something of a laughing stock but Yousaf did his bit to add to the gaiety of the nation: falling off his scooter in a Holyrood corridor, struggling with scissors as he tried to cut a ribbon at an office opening, bleating that he ‘didn’t mean… to make them [the Greens] angry’ when he terminated the SNP’s power-sharing agreement.

    His failure to see this and the fact he was bereft of a Plan B was what brought him down in the end and suggests he’s not really suited to politics. There were times when he made even Liz Truss look competent. His departure leaves the SNP in tatters.’

      Wouldn’t his departure improve the SNP’s standing? Just like Rishi’s will improve…no, that’s ridiculous..

    If you’ve seen the videos, he’s running around, jumping fences, climbing on to roofs, wielding a sword etc.
    But we’re meant to believe he suddenly needs hospital treatment for prior vehicle crash injuries.

    Maybe police gave him a good kicking or something.

    How do they know he’s 36 if they’re yet to question him?

In a translated excerpt, the girl’s father describes having his asylum claim rejected 14 times from Belgium, Sweden and Finland. Not once; 14 times.

  39. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I wonder how the population of Rwanda are feeling about having tens of thousands of failed asylum seekers dumped on them.

    First of all, it’s not very nice when your Country is used as a sort of punishment place. It’s like the naughty corner when you’ve been misbehaving.
    It’s being used as a threat to try and stop all the Doctors and Scientists from jumping onto a rubber inflateable to get to their benefit and home providers here.
    A threat means it must be a rotten place to be sent to so don’t dare to try and come here.
    It’s like a civil servant in London being threatened to be sent to the Orkneys or Middlesborough as a punishment posting.

    Once they are there (if it ever happens) you can bet the Rwandans will be claiming some kind of payments long after the ‘asylum seeker’ has upped and off towards Sweden or Calais (or maybe popped home for a holiday to the place he is saying wants to kill him)

    We will be getting lots of lifetime hospital cases in exchange from Rwanda as part of the agreement and these will go straight onto the nhs treatments lists with multiple health issues from cleft palates to cancers and other expensive treatments.
    At least all the ones coming over the Channel are fit and healthy young men not requiring any nhs treatments.

    We are getting the worst of all the possible options and nothing the government is doing will decrease the numbers flooding over to us.

    So then, we see Rwanda as a shithole place (but have to say it’s fantastic) so which is it.

    If it’s a success (money spinner) for Rwanda there will be many others queuing up to join in.
    Sudan, Iran, Yemen for example. Just send the Iranians to Afghanistan and the Afghans to Iran and Bob’s your Uncle.

      I think it is inevitable that given the scale of enrichment, British Police in certain areas are going to have to carry firearms as a matter of routine.
      OK it’s a matter of pedantry but to be a sword a bladed weapon needs to have some form of handguard and this thing doesn’t. It looks like one of the cheap ornamental Samurai type things but it’s a small one. Had it been used against a real sword I expect it would have fallen apart very quickly.

      They can still be sharpened, and clearly lethal and I don’t suppose when you are on the pointy end you very much care what it is.

      Here is someone I watch from time to time as yes I do own a real one and learning how to use them is great excercise for keeping fit.

    ‘It does seem hard to believe that the European civilization can ever vanish and yet to know it has happened once. All the life-giving human activities that we lump together under the word civilization have been obliterated once already in Western Europe. When the Barbarians ran over the Roman Empire for two centuries the heart of European civilization almost stopped beating, we got through by the skin of our teeth…in the last few years we developed an uneasy feeling that this could happen again and advanced thinkers [BBC/Guardinianistas] who even in Roman times thought it’d be fine to gang up with the Barbarians have begun to question if civilization is worth preserving.’

    Extended first item on the 6 pm BBC news. With a reporter ‘on the beach’.i

    The father came from Iraq in 2009. He married and had kids. The 7 year old was born in Belgium but lived nearly all her life in Sweden.

    He was denied asylum 14 times, in Belgium, Finland, and Sweden.

    So they decided to chance it and come to the UK. I wonder why?

    Could it be that the extreme left have taken over the Home Office, government, immigration and social service systems? And families like this just know that the pathetic uk system, armed to the teeth with endless refugee pressure groups and solicitors like Leigh Day, will cave in and allow them to stay?

    Proof positive of why people come here. Because they absolutely know we are a soft touch.
