I can only assume two conclusions.

The first would be racism, and second would be the media pack inter vention....


What a load of bollocks.

People don't care because there was no issue over the man's guilt.

It became an issue for the UK citizen because some people believed, right or wrong, he was not responsible for his actions.

Simple as that.

Trust you to try to make something out of nothing - a rather sad attempt to regurgitate an old story amid shouts of racism (while casually forgetting his skin color).

We have strong human rights lobbyists here who will have pressured the Foreign Office and Brown himself.

He probably couldn't have cared less but he had to go through the motions.

The Japs if i read them correctly are probably in full agreement with the sentence.

Well, satsu already gave a mention to the racism part.

Although, Mr. Shaikh did have a U.K passport and it is now multi-ethnic there.

So theoretically all are part of the club, irrespective.

Or are you saying that he was not a real Brit.


But the message could still have underlying tones of Asian life not being of value.

Is that not a form of racism?


And exactly, a media induced frenzy.

Created by distorting the facts, which the Proles swallowed whole.

This was lead by the U.K government, who although they probably knew it would make no difference.

Still manipulated the population to cry foul, using the layman opinion of immediate and unqualified family members.

And let us not forget those who cried out that ALL life is precious, guilty or not.

Couldn't find those same sentiments for the Japanese guys.

That doesn't make you curious?

You are probably right.

But all the same there were those who claimed ALL life sacred.

Yet failed to make this same case for Japs.

That is one of the things that made me ask these questions.

What underlying tones? The ones you are imagining?

The fact that there has been no huge outcry e.g. from the Brits is more to do with the fact that he is not British rather than being Japanese.

The ones I wrote in my last thread to you.

Don't you ever read a whole post?  

Here it is again.
This time I will imagine that you might read it.

Now did you manage to get all the way to the end of that.

Or did you just imagine you did.
