The one-eyed man is still king.
I am not a fan of the EDL, but I can’t help but get annoyed when they are written up in the press. Where ever they meet up there is almost always trouble of some sort and it is always implied they are to blame. Take this example –
Police have made 28 arrests following a demonstration by the English Defence League (EDL) in Walsall town centre.
West Midlands Police said up to 1,000 people gathered at the EDL event and at a counter-demonstration.
Notice first how the arrests are subliminally linked, in the first paragraph, to the EDL alone. Notice second how those that organised the counter-demonstration are not named. Now I reckon we all have a pretty good idea who they are but why the sudden shyness in naming them. You would have thought, with all the recent hoo hah over cover ups, deaf ears and blind eyes regarding certain members of the population, the Police would be desperate to prove that lessons have been learned etc.
Mr Ram Mehmi, president of the Shri Guru Ravidass Cultural Association in Darlaston, and a member of Walsall Independent Advisory Group, was involved in viewing the police operation throughout the day.
He said: “I have been in a position to see the full police operation as it played out and have been impressed by all I have seen.
“Police were very well organised and the tactical options they used in very difficult circumstances went well to make sure that the safety of the public was secure.”
Ah, now I understand. With the all seeing, all knowing, never blinking, never sleeping, multi-cultural Big Brother still watching your every move, with it’s one good eye (that blind one never get’s a mention) it’s no wonder you have opted to play it safe with careful wording.
