A picture of England

Or how I learnt to stop worrying and love the EU…?

Via Islamophobic blog we learn from the BBC that "extremists" have been blamed after a cartoon featuring the prophet Mohammed with a bomb in his turban was put up in a housing office in Oldham.

It appeared at the offices of First Choice Homes - which runs the town's council housing - and, or so we are told, "managers acted quickly to remove it and have begun an inquiry." They also reported the matter to the police.

Oldham Council said the cartoon could be part of an attempt by right-wing extremists to increase tension ahead of council elections in May. I bet it was this.

Anyhow, you will be pleased to learn that Greater Manchester Police said they were treating the incident "extremely seriously" and were worried the incident could affect "community cohesion".

A spokesplod said: "Greater Manchester Police treat any incitement of racial hatred extremely seriously and robustly investigate any such incidents that are reported to us. "We will not tolerate any acts of racial discrimination and are committed to working with local communities to tackle any issues that may arise."

Meanwhile, you will be delighted to learn, the plods have been active elsewhere. A volunteer litter-picker, Keith Jones, 65, of Hawarden, Flintshire, had been leaving bags of collected rubbish by the roadside for the council. He was spotted doing this by a diligent "householder" who duly informed the North Wales plods, whereupon Jones was fined £50 for fly-tipping.

Not content with this unceasing effort in pursuit of law and order, Leicestershire plods have sent round emails to some of whom they presumed to be solid citizens, alerting the good people to the fact that BNP intends to distribute their Mohammed leaflet in the district. They are asking for information and proof that the leaflet is being delivered. No prizes for guessing what's in what passes for their minds.

And while we're in the guessing mood… how many of the scumbags who paraded placards through London on 3 February, inciting murder and mayhem, have been arrested or charged by the Metropolitan plods? I'll give you a clue: it's a round number… a very round number.
