Woolwich

Those guys aren't terrorists they are just nutters who happen to be Muslim. His rant is nonsensical and the only thing this will achieve is racial hatred and more deaths. Shame the video got out it will only make things worse.

The video is so weird. Who would idly tape some guy holding a cleaver who JUST killed someone with that very cleaver. I'd run the fuck away from him.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Yeah. Bastard rolling 24 hour news cycles are a sin, with their conjecture and misinformation. You could see the BBC presenters perk up like a dog at dinner time when the fact that the lunatics might be muslim. The only sources for the shout of 'Allahu Akbar' are the government and the police. No eyewitnesses say it, and the police weren't on the scene for a long time afterwards. What I kept hearing, from authoritative looking experts in expensive suits was: "I must stress, that this is all unconfirmed." How about some respectful silence while the corpse cools before putting that kind of information into the public sphere? People who want to hear that stuff are never bothered by retraction. And the British soldier element is even more distasteful, leading to a few acquaintances getting dropped off my social media.

"Its awful when a british soldier dies fighting wars for our country BUT it is wrong,sick and disgusting when one dies walking in his own country!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WE WANT ENGLAND BACK!!"

"There all the fucking same, every last one of em"

"BNP i think its your time to step up"

Thick headed bigots, just waiting for an excuse. I honestly don't understand how this is terrorist, or what terrorist means now. Foreigner, non-christian?

Well said mate. It is all so disrespectful to the family of the man that died, it's like he's a byproduct of the news entertainment medium. A "friend" of mine on Facebook has just posted "send them all back home." What a bloody idiot, and he won't be alone in those sentiments.

I generally lean towards the government being incompetent rather than manipulatively evil, but the gleeful assimilation of the Philpott case by the conservatives as an example of why benefits need to be cut, like Thatcher's Party Political Broadcast Funeral, has knocked that generosity out of me.

With no paranoia, I honestly think that this is going to be used as a stick to push through harsh, unfair immigration reform. And the media's just the mouthpiece, with no reason to check the facts because facts don't garner ratings.

Once again this forum proves it can bust the challenge of polarizing any deadly serious political topic, such as decapitation, and carry it to the likes of Boney M.

This is totally impressionistic and anecdotal, but the English seem to be better at that kind of vigilante vengeance insanity than Americans. The English always seem to back up the talk with genuine asshole behaviour. Kudos?
