Sunny adds: A journalist called me up today and said that one of the main reasons this story did not get much coverage is because Lancashire Police simply sat on it without telling many people, for no particular reason.
Further to that, and more curiously, I was told they also warned journalists trying to cover the story that there were “heavy media restrictions”, although enquiries with the Home Office later revealed no such restrictions.
As an aside, this is also wierd. The BNP has written an article sounding miffed that New Labour is trying to outdo their own party in the Muslim-hysteria stakes. No, really. They say, “media pundits are reveling in their new found liberty to take a daily dig at Muslims.” Erm… I don’t quite know what is going on here. They add:
Itâ€™s a dangerous game the Labour establishment has chosen to play, one which could lead to serious disorder and bloodshed. Do Blair and Straw really want to see a civil war on the streets of West Yorkshire, Birmingham and Oldham?
Benedict White points out that on this they are also in agreement with Trevor Phillips. And apparently banning the veil is a “cheap snipe”.
But they also add that the “…still powerful Zionist lobby is in part stirring up war propaganda as a prelude to an inevitable attack on Iran.” Well at least they haven’t changed their spots completely.
