Ignoring the problem is hardly a new way of doing things. There was propaganda on CiF today, too: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/jun/17/1?gusrc=rss&feed=commentisfree


Perhaps Boris thinks that things like this don't actually do what they say on the tin.

Because let's face it, they don't. Just because some Islington luvvies or Hoxton media types called Jemima pop on their pashminas and head down to the nearest anti-racism concert in Finsbury Park or Vicky Park, and listen to some really fabbo world music, yeah, and feel a little less guilty about the colour of their skin because they've seen a black face for the first time since they went to that bijou little boutique in Camden Market - it doesn't really make Richard Barnbrook quake in his boots.

Indeed the whole advertisement that this sort of thing gets, and the sort of people who go - "every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, vegetarian, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, 'Nature Cure' quack, pacifist and feminist in England" as Orwell said - really get up the backs of the white working-class in East London, and make them even more determined to stick two fingers up to their cloistered, pompous and self-righteous "anti-racism".

There are 101 better ways of fighting racism than this smug left-fest which only exacerbates the problem.


My five pence:

Hello Parasite. Bit touchy aren't we? Just wondering who you voted for on 1st May...

Trot Watch

We certainly don't need to ask who YOU voted for, do we Dave?

Dave  Hill

Not to anyone who's been paying attention, TrotWatch, no.
