Officers arrested 16 people living on the site in connection with the production of cannabis and three others in connection with separate offences. They said a ‘small minority of individuals’ with links to the site had been involved. Right, right. And all the others? They never noticed anything? They never wondered when they’d see any of the ‘community centre’ up and running? Wondered when the three toilets would be in…

…guess we now have politicians who want to ban books by Nazis: Scottish Labour MP Thomas Docherty is calling for a national debate on whether the sale of Adolf Hitler’s “repulsive” manifesto Mein Kampf should be prohibited in the UK. /facepalm “Of course Amazon – and indeed any other bookseller – is doing nothing wrong in selling the book. However, I think that there is a compelling case for a…

…just like you don’t get to impose necessary restrictions on halal slaughter and let shechita slaughter slip by unnoticed: …Mr Agnew said the policy was not meant to target shechita. “This isn’t aimed at you – it’s aimed elsewhere – it’s aimed at others. “You’ve been caught in the crossfire; collateral damage. You know what I mean.” Yes, we know exactly what you mean, and you couldn’t be more wrong.…

No, There’s Something Else That Makes This ‘Particularly Reprehensible’…

Chief Inspector Martin Brennan, from West Midlands Police’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said the cars and greed gave the men away. He said: ‘This was a highly-organised and well-orchestrated criminal network but what makes it particularly reprehensible is that fact a serving police officer was at the centre of it all.’ …and that’s the fact that this man was in the police force at all. And we can all…

Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw has said head teachers faced with equal candidates for a teaching post should consider “positive discrimination”. The head of the education watchdog told LBC Radio that the teaching staff of schools should reflect the ethnic diversity of their pupils. “There needs to be a fair representation,” said Sir Michael. I’m not at all sure what’s ‘fair’ about selecting someone simply because they are a particular…

Video games are one of the most vibrant cultural forms of the 21st century – but they have an image problem. *sighs* Guess who? The industry is seen as a boys’ club, a production line of games written by young men, predominantly aimed at young men. Even though independent studios are making more diverse content than ever, gaming culture is dominated by male voices. Is there nothing the joyless progressives…

Gaby Hinsliff Fails To Recognise Who Is Doing The Bullying…

Nobody should be bullied into wearing something to prove their allegiance to a country, whether it’s a bracelet or a red poppy or a saltire in face paint. She’s referring to the ribbing Miliband got for not wearing the latest craze – bracelets to show support for a cause. She has a point. And nor, arguably, should they be bullied out of wearing something. And again, I’d usually agree. This…

Oxford Dodged A Bullet Here…

Helen Price, writing in the ‘Guardian’ last year, about turning down Oxford to go to Yale: Cash-starved UK universities cannot compete with the funding opportunities offered by US colleges, whose wealthy alumni throw donations at their alma maters. Yale’s $19.4 billion endowment dwarfs Oxford’s £3.9 billion, meaning that they can pay for everything from summers abroad to huge research grants. Most of all, I noticed the difference in their attitude…

Shah said his son told him about the conversation with the inspectors after he picked him up from school on Wednesday. “He said, Dad, when they took us to the side room, they said ‘Do you guys know what gay means?’. My son said, yes, I do know what it means, what’s that got to do with our education? They said, ‘Are you exposed to it in any way, good…

Language and mores change over the years and what was acceptable in the past is no longer acceptable now. That’s not to say that the likes of the current round of sex cases from forty years ago being dredged up by the police are innocent, but, at the time it was an accepted attitude for the ‘glitterati’ to behave with their adoring fans. Being basically mobbed by fans and taking…

Police have made members of the public aware that a stall in Southend High Street is being run by a far-right political group. That’s nice of them. Do they feel the need to warn members of the public that they might be contributing to a political organisation whose aims they may not support when the chuggers are rattling tins for the RSPCA in the high street? Or is this somehow…

A classic response from that great thinker of our time, Diane Abbott: The introduction of water cannon to the streets of London would be a public order disaster. If politicians were perturbed by the violence they saw on the streets in urban areas in 2011, it would be as nothing compared to the disorder that agreeing to the request by the Metropolitan police for water cannon could provoke. Ummm, yeah.…

Leyla Hussein, 32, said many were scared to speak out against FGM because they were worried about criticising another culture. Congratulations, Leyla, you now live in the world the progressives built! Ain’t it grand? Approaching shoppers with the petition supporting FGM, she told them she wanted to protect her “culture, traditions and rights” . In only 30 minutes 19 people signed it with some saying they believed FGM was wrong…

It will be interesting to see if any newspaper covers the fact that members of Britain’s armed forces appeared to join in with Scottish football fans as they sang sectarian songs at a match yesterday. ‘Appeared to’..? Well, did they, or didn’t they? You don’t seem too sure… Rival Celtic fans were quick to point to songs that are supposed to be banned from all Scottish football grounds under a…
