Tottenham: police shooting followed by riots
#31
I certainly have little meaningful to say about a socio-political process/event in a country I've never visited and would certainly be hard-pressed to understand even when armed with a really good map. For that reason, I post only the link to an article that comes recommended by Chris Floyd at Empire Burlesque written by a well-known essayist he frequently recommends by the name of Arthur Silber who lives in far-off Los Angeles. Someone closer to the scene can read the articles and determine if they are worthy of posting in their entirety. I suspect they are, but then I am over 3,200 miles away.

UK Prime Minister Endorses Racist's Facebook Group On National TV Address

British Prime Minister David Cameron promotes a racist's Facebook group on a national address aired on the BBC and on his own Facebook page.

There are widespread allegations of system racism throughout England.

The British media is full of racially charged articles about the protestors.

This article on the UK's Mirror blames the riots on black rappers and their urban culture.

In this article on The Telegraph the author assert she "instinctively knew" the blacks were behind the riots.

Then you have the The Daily Mail article which goes on and on about the "black animals" as "poor, jobless, uneducated, welfare dependent, and brutalised youngsters".

Perhaps even worse than the blatantly open racism are the calls from the London media to beat brutality beat members of the public and use lethal riot deterrence techniques.

Perhaps the most shocking display of racism and discontent for the masses comes from the leader of England himself.

Earlier the British Prime Minister David Cameron announced plans to disregard calls to respect human rights violations in dealing with the London protests and authorized police to shoot so-called "rioters" on sight.

Then In another show of systematic racism that plagues England the Prime minister took things to another level in the address.

In a nationwide broadcast aired on the BBC today Mr. Cameron endorsed the Facebook page of a racist pig and went on to "like" the group on his Facebook page.

David Cameron Endorses Racists Facebook Group
While step's have been undertaken, most likely by the government, to hide the groups ties to the racist founder Wings Over Sealand has done an excellent job of documenting the racists ties and the attempt to cover it up.

David Cameron's new best friend

You may have seen David Cameron on the news today, anointing himself head of the "New Moral Army", promising a "fightback" against rioters, and praising (at 0.53) "the million people on Facebook who've signed up to support the police". The group in question was created, and is run, by this lovely chap:

Well, that doesn't seem the sort of thing the Prime Minister should be getting behind, does it? But wait. There are more rib-ticklers where that came from.



The funniest one is probably this one:

[Image: boscottlies-450x151.jpg]

…in which Boscott attempts to deny responsibility for the "Junglebook" post, claiming a hacked Twitter account. Fair enough, you might think. These things happen, but luckily his account appears to be under his control again, spewing out hundreds of anti-rioter tweets in recent days and gathering tens of thousands of followers.

Though oddly, rather than being about social justice or supporting the police, the profile claims to be mostly about "bad taste/offensive jokes" and "Adult Humour not 4 wimps". You might think that some would consider that description to fit the "Junglebook" line quite well, and that Boscott's denial of having posted it therefore smelt a bit fishy.

[Image: boscottprofile-450x214.jpg]

What you might think of doing then was going back through Boscott's tweets of the last few days, which are still there on the feed for anyone to see and which he doesn't appear to be denying responsibility for.

[Image: boscott2a-450x261.jpg]

Hmm.

[Image: boscott1a-450x260.jpg]

Right.

[Image: boscott4a-450x354.jpg]

Uh-huh.

[Image: boscott3a-450x286.jpg]

I see.

[Image: boscott7a-450x282.jpg]

Short of material already?

[Image: boscott8a-450x261.jpg]

Topical satire!

[Image: boscott6a-450x241.jpg]

Well, at least it's not just the blacks, I guess.

[Image: boscott5a-450x313.jpg]

It's nice to see that, a bit like Michael McIntyre, he's keen to promote other young up-and-coming comics too.

[Image: boscott11a-450x259.jpg]

And it gets more mysterious this sidesplitter is from the same date as the "Junglebook" tweet. Boscott is presumably in sole control of his Twitter account now. So why is this sort of thing, which we're told was someone else's handiwork, still here? What possible explanation could there be? Perhaps he just doesn't know how the "Delete this tweet" button works. Yes, that must be it.

Call me over-sensitive, but I'm not sure this guy leading a vast army of the Met's cheerleaders is going to be all that constructive over the days ahead in healing the nation's wounds. And I'm pretty certain it's not someone the Prime Minister of the country really ought to be singling out for praise.

[Image: boscottcameron2-450x356.jpg]

But hey, I'm just some pinko liberal, what do I know?



EDIT (8.15pm): Boscott's Twitter profile has been hastily edited since this feature appeared, replacing his picture and the profile description. The before and after shots are below. Maybe he's finally started to work out how to try to cover his tracks after all. Just slightly too late there, fella.

Quote:An Open Letter to David Cameron's Parents
Dear Mr & Mrs Cameron,

Why did you never take the time to teach your child basic morality?

As a young man, he was in a gang that regularly smashed up private property. We know that you were absent parents who left your child to be brought up by a school rather than taking responsibility for his behaviour yourselves. The fact that he became a delinquent with no sense of respect for the property of others can only reflect that fact that you are terrible, lazy human beings who failed even in teaching your children the difference between right and wrong. I can only assume that his contempt for the small business owners of Oxford is indicative of his wider values.

Even worse, your neglect led him to fall in with a bad crowd.

This is a reference to the apparently criminal behaviour of Tory toffs Cameron, Osborne & Boris Johnson when members of the exclusive Oxford University drinking club known as the Bullingdon.

China, North Korea, Iran, Libya… David Cameron Threatens to Shut Down UK Social Networks When Pre-Crime Detected

August 11th, 2011
Via: Thinq:http://www.thinq.co.uk/2011/8/11/cameron...-networks/

In a move worthy of China's communist regime, UK PM David Cameron wants to shut down social networks whenever civil unrest rears its head in Britain's towns and cities.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Cameron said, "Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were, organised via social media.
"Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill. So we are working with the police, the intelligence services and industry to look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality."
Although the Old Etonian didn't give any clue as to how he intends to block use of the likes of Twitter, Facebook and BlackBerry messenger which have all been implicated in the mob's ability to stay 17 steps ahead of the cops as they turn up hours after the nation's shops and businesses have been picked clean by gangs of feral teenagers but the only way we can see it working is if the entire cellular network is turned off in affected areas.

I can hear that statement from the police speaker:
"We are inifinitely sorry that you were unable to contact the police and the fire department when your house was burning and your sister was being lynched, but it was necessary to cut all communications in the area to prevent further violence."
:banghead:


Edit:
On review it looks like Cameron said:
Quote:Mr Speaker, everyone watching these horrific actions will be stuck by how they were organised via social media.
Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill.
And when people are using social media for violence we need to stop them.
So we are working with the Police, the intelligence services and industry to look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality.
I have also asked the police if they need any other new powers.
This goes more in the direction of internet censorship and not shutting off the mobile network.

We got drunk trashed the Ritz, and then walked down Piccadilly to loot a few items from Fortnums.
