Why haven’t police arrested Britain First thugs who raided migrant-housing hotel?

Did Theresa May intend our police to be toothless, back when she cut law enforcement numbers by more than 20,000 in 2016 or thereabouts? Coppers in the UK now seem far more interested in prosecuting parking and speeding offences than in investigating crimes of violence perpetrated against human beings. How else could one explain the inability of police services across the UK to stop people who are exempt from wearing face masks in shops from being assaulted by their fellow shoppers, who have no right to do so? And how…

This is what Black Lives Matter meant to US police: wait a while, then shoot them in the back

So much for all the protesting and solidarity earlier this summer. American police are still shooting to kill black people for no apparent reason. It seems clear that they will continue to do so until force is used to stop them. And how can that happen when they have the guns, and the name of the law – if not the letter of it – behind them? The victim in this instance is Jacob Blake, of, Kenosha, Wisconsin, who was apparently walking back to his car after breaking up a fight…

What will you say when they ask what you did in the class war?

I seem to have hit a nerve when I said the Tories are waging a class war on anyone who isn’t filthy rich. In fact, two Vox Political articles touched on this class war – the first implied it, the second made it explicit. Today I opened Twitter to discover those words all over the place: The A levels are the ruling class brazenly saying – “we’ll fix society now like we always have” Only thing, this time you can see the workings Mind you, anyone who dares to REALLY challenge…

Dawn Butler: where’s Starmer’s support for his MP, as campaign to get Cressida #DickOut of Met Police begins

Public support for Labour MP Dawn Butler is growing, along with a campaign for the removal of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick – but her own party leader, Keir Starmer, is silent. Why? Starmer – a former Director of Public Prosecutions and a staunch supporter of the police – has been on the social media since the car in which Ms Butler was travelling was stopped under false pretences by police yesterday (August 9). So have many of his right-wing – sorry, centrist – lieutenants. But they haven’t had a…

MP stopped by police in London for ‘driving around whilst black’

Almost exactly a month after two black athletes were stopped and handcuffed by Metropolitan police, Brent MP Dawn Butler has suffered the same humiliation. For the same reason? Ms Butler, a Labour MP, was stopped while travelling as a passenger with a friend, who is also black. Police who stopped her said the car was registered in North Yorkshire – but changed their tune after they realised who they had pulled over, and said they had input the licence plate into their system incorrectly. A likely story! This was the…

IS bride may face arrest if she comes to UK and begs courts to restore her citizenship

It seems Shamima Begum is likely to have her wish to live back in the UK after all – as a criminal serving a prison sentence for terror crimes. The Home Office announced its disappointment that the Court of Appeal had allowed her to come home to beg for the return of her UK citizenship, and said it would appeal against the ruling. Well, it seems someone has come up with this in the meantime. Interestingly, a (non-scientific) poll of This Site’s readers has shown (at the time of writing)…

Met police refers itself to police watchdog over stop-and-search of athletes’ car

That was quick. This Writer only published Vox Political‘s story about the Metropolitan police targeting black athletes Ricardo dos Santos, Bianca Williams and their three-month-old baby for a stop/search a couple of hours ago, and already the case has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct! If you want something to happen, get me to write about it. But seriously… It actually took several days and the threat of a court case for this matter to be referred to the IOPC, and This Writer is concerned that we’ll see…

Are you convinced by the Met police’s excuse for incident with Linford Christie athletes?

I’m not. The Metropolitan Police say they were well within their rights to stop – and handcuff – athletes Ricardo dos Santos and Bianca Williams while their three-month-old son was left in their car. Linford Christie – yes, that Linford Christie, the UK’s most successful sprinter, and a mentor of both athletes – posted video of the incident on Twitter. It’s quite disturbing: Racist police aren't just in America #BLM pic.twitter.com/7DKgLnGPhc — Linford Christie (@ChristieLinford) July 4, 2020 He also posted a statement: pic.twitter.com/u7fQxExo8P — Linford Christie (@ChristieLinford) July 4, 2020…

Police smash car window of black man returning from TV interview about police racism

Is it any wonder black people react badly to the police when this is the way they can expect to be treated? Once again, we’re seeing racism from the Metropolitan Police. Where is the commissioner of that “service”, Cressida Dick? Why is she not ripping out the racism, root and branch? And what about City of London Police? What’s their excuse? Look at the state of this: When an officer smashed in the window of Ryan Colaço’s car, after he was wrongly accused of concealing drugs, they did not know…

Police who took selfies next to black women’s dead bodies prove the Met is institutionally racist

I’m sure you all remember the wave of horror and outrage at the double murder of two black women in Wembley Park, London, earlier this month and the utter indifference of the police who had been told they were missing. No? That’s because there wasn’t one – mostly because it wasn’t reported. Now it has emerged that police officers who were directed to the bodies by the boyfriend of one of the victims – who had gone out to find them himself after the Metropolitan police showed no interest –…
