    Comment at end

    19th July 2010


    No? Me neither.

    There are accounts at Durotrigan which seems balanced to me, and non-judgemental, “truth seeking” you might say.

    A commenter who says he was present says this:

    Van Grungy said…

    “The be all and end all of it is – as agreed by a number of people today – the Police simply didn`t want all the EDL who travelled in Dudley. 3 buses were laid on to ferry people to the demo. The buses went 2 miles or so to the demo point and never came back for the rest. Everyone started to walk, the police blocked everyone. After what seemed ages, most people had made their way to Castle hill and the police were there in force. Nobody was going to pass and they didn`t. Members were assaulted and sent on their way. Small groups were picked off by local Asians – police confirmed this. I can`t comment what happened in the demo site as I never made it. But i did witness our coaches being stoned while police looked on, and a mob wandering around Dudley as if they owned the place – they then attacked police.
    Apologies if I have repeated myself – raging at the moment. “




    Here’s the only info from “Trusted” BBC…


    I must say – if that WAS the only BBC information it is disgraceful. The BBC is a publicly funded news and information broadcaster, perhaps THE most famous in the world. Why is this riot not newsworthy?

    It is admittedly not an exact comparison, as no-one died on Saturday’s demo as far as we know. But isn’t this lack of engagement eerily redolent of an imaginary report from earlier times?

    “Several injuries reported inside showers at work camp in Auschwitz.”

    We now know that compliance and covering-up of the facts was institutionalised in Nazi Germany. Nor, it would seem in Hitler’s Germany was publicity given to those standing up against Nazi-type, intimidating behaviour.

    Is this bias redolent also of the lack of reporting in the British press of Geert Wilders’s International Freedom initiative?

    We are right to ask these questions. The government has a duty to respond to them. ALL of them.

    How much longer before we have leadership with the necessaries to deal with this major issue in our green and pleasant land?



    Pam Geller’s Atlas Shrugs has this with the proviso at the top that all the facts are not yet known or even clear. Can you imagine ANY proviso from those who are on the other side of FREEDOM in Britain?

    No, me neither.

    A recent comment from an Albanian, Mr Leonard Dedej from Tirana – “It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!!for stopping a savage war!about Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is to small to judge!!history will judge mr Blair!as long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame mr Blair,after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!!”

    1. Martyy2 Says:

      Portrait of the 1985 Handsworth Riots – Pogus Caesar – BBC1 TV . Inside Out.

      Broadcast 25 Oct 2010.


      Birmingham film maker and photographer Pogus Caesar knows Handsworth well. He found himself in the centre of the 1985 riots and spent two days capturing a series of startling images. Caesar kept them hidden for 20 years. Why? And how does he see Handsworth now?. The stark black and white photographs featured provide a rare, valuable and historical record of the raw emotion, heartbreak and violence that unfolded during those dark and fateful days in September 1985.
