The first of an occasional series – those benefits of a multi-cultural Britain in full. Let me introduce you all to this human filth.
It could be an anomaly, of course. But it isn’t. The overwhelming majority of street crime, knife crime, gun crime, robbery and crimes of sexual violence in London is carried out by young men from the African-Caribbean community. Of course, in return, we have rap music, goat curry and a far more vibrant and diverse understanding of cultures which were once alien to us. For which, many thanks.
Of course, Liddle gets grief from the usual suspects who fly in the face of the facts and simply use the usual and very tired "racist" slur. Can't they do better? Can they really not offer an argument based on the facts?
Here is the comment I left:
You quoted a fact, used a bit of irony that was supposed to be shorthand for "maybe multiculturalism is not the stonking success it might be"
I spent a lot of time sometime ago trying to establish the facts, which by the way, concur.
What worries me is not the hysterical "la,la,la, I'm not listening" comments on here, but the deliberate attempt by the Metopolitcan Police to sit on the statistics.
It's the climate change syndrome: if the data does not give the answer we want, hide the data.
Until very recently, knife crime stats had to be dragged out of the Police under FOI requests. Any correlation between ethnic groups and higher than average convictions was, by any stretch of the imagination, suppressed.
The BBC routinely suppresses the fact that many of these high profile, violent crimes are perpetrated by Afro-Caribbeans.
It took the Daily Mail, yes the Daily Mail, to get the truth, from official Met records in 2008, and lo!, the truth is there for all to see:
"Black youths are suspected of more than half of knife crime among children in the capital, according to confidential Scotland Yard figures.
A highly-sensitive report reveals that 124 of the 225 under-18s legally 'proceeded against' for knife offences in the past three months are from the black community.
Yet in the overwhelming majority of reported cases of knife crime involving young people, the victims are white."
Now, are your readers going to dispute this? On what basis? The Met didn't
The uncomfortable truth exists and needs to be dealt with by people like Rod Liddle, or it will be dealt with by people like Nick Griffin - you make the choice, but don't pretend it is not a problem.
