A leisurely cruise through the interweb, a look at a couple of blogs and I was aware that Gadget has another valuable piece of input into one of the tabloid press offerings. The lawless trend will not come as any surprise to Police officers up and down the country. It will probably not be of any concern to Jack Straw as he will assume that all Police officers are safe and warm within the confines of their Police Stations drinking tea in their comfy canteen chairs trying their best to avoid doing any work.
The reality is that most stations have lost their canteens and might be fortunate enough to have a small kitchen to make a brew when they get a chance to come, that is if someone hasn’t nicked the last of the milk or left an empty container with only a couple of drops inside.
What got me interested in the Sun was the article concerning the alleged hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who is apparently planning a protest march in Wootton Basset by the Islam4UK group, carrying coffins to symbolise thousands of Muslims killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Choudary is, apparently, in housing with his family claiming benefits from a country that he clearly has no affinity with and allows him to operate his own religious or political agenda under the social financial umbrella of the tax payers of the country he has an issue with. If that is not biting the hand that is feeding, I don’t know what is.
Perhaps a one way ticket to a destination of his choice would save everyone a shed-load of money in the long-term.
Residents of Wootton Bassett have turned out more than 100 times in the past two years to pay their respects as the bodies of fallen British heroes are taken from nearby RAF Lyneham to a morgue in Oxford. I suspect that they will not be very happy about the views of Anjem Choudary.
The Sun reports that Moderate Muslims have urged police to stop the protest to prevent a backlash by right-wing British groups. Also Wootton Bassett’s Mayor Steve Bucknell said he was “dismayed” by the planned march, saying: “We will do whatever we can to persuade the authorities that it will be a very bad idea to allow this march.”
Police confirmed they were aware of the planned protest and said they would take all steps necessary to maintain the peace.
