Edward Lud May 18, 2017 at 8:17 am Haven’t seen it. Is it faithful to the publicly-available facts? I mean, does it, er, correctly represent the, ahem, alleged perpetrators? Jesus Christ May 18, 2017 at 8:18 am You? JuliaM May 18, 2017 at 8:29 am @Edward Lud: Actually, yes. Mr Ecks May 18, 2017 at 9:15 am Jesus–if you are such a friend of the RoP now why not change your name to pay due respect to their headman? Edward Lud May 18, 2017 at 9:58 am Julia: golly, well I never. Paul May 18, 2017 at 10:38 am I think they’re using the word “Asians” (rather than what they are, Pakistani Muslims). I suspect our Indian migrants especially are a bit fed up of this. Jesus Christ May 18, 2017 at 12:09 pm Mr Ecks – how the fuck did you come to that conclusion? Dave May 18, 2017 at 1:07 pm Nick Griffin was the key enabler. Without his racist fantasies as a cover, the crimes would have been punished much, much earlier. Put simply, the rather justifiable assumption was that a man who has spent his life telling racist lies was just telling another racist lie, and to investigate it would have been to give credence to his racist lies. Boy who cried wolf, is another way to put it. Nazi Nick wasn’t even right about what was going on. It’s just that one of his racist delusions finally happened to be close enough to something real for his Nazi propaganda purposes. Mr Ecks May 18, 2017 at 1:16 pm You are scum Dave. Sex abuse is Nick Griffin’s fault because he brought attention to it and all the snowflakes and leftist rape enablers didn’t believe him–tho they in fact knew what was going on anyway–cos he was BNP and anti-waycist SJW shite like you couldn’t be arsed to even check? Piss up your leg and play with the steam. You left the Joos out btw. BniC May 18, 2017 at 1:55 pm Asians is a more generic term used in places other than the U.K. So possibly following that convention. Hasn’t there already been a complaint about it on the basis that it’s shows certain racial groups in a bad light and that there should only be positive role models for people of colour etc on tv JuliaM May 18, 2017 at 2:51 pm Dave: “Without his racist fantasies as a cover, the crimes would have been punished much, much earlier.” That conclusion is so perverse only you could possibly draw it, Dave… “Put simply, the rather justifiable assumption was that a man who has spent his life telling racist lies was just telling another racist lie” Nick Griffin didn’t raise it. The people who raised it were as far away from Nick Griffin as it’s possible to get. And yet still, the cops & social workers failed to do their job. Thus provoking outpourings of racial loathing in the general public the likes of which Griffin could only dream of. Boggo May 18, 2017 at 3:12 pm “Asians is a more generic term used in places other than the U.K.” Maybe, but it’s nothing like that in Australia. There ‘Asian’ means Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese or Korean.

WHAT A BASTARD. Rob May 18, 2017 at 3:18 pm In fact, Griffin raising it was a godsend because now all the State services could safely ignore the allegations, knowing his association made them toxic to anyone going near them who fancied holding on to their career. David May 18, 2017 at 5:30 pm @Dave I don’t like Nick Griffin but to blame him seems rather strange. Of course the problem is that now almost any accusation of cover up by Muslim crimes sounds believable. Silverite May 18, 2017 at 5:48 pm “Asians is a more generic term used in places other than the U.K.” “Maybe, but it’s nothing like that in Australia. There ‘Asian’ means Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese or Korean.” Ditto the rest of the Anglosphere. Asian means chopsticks, kimonos, or ladyboys, rather than curries, terrorists, and the RoP (but I repeat myself). john77 May 18, 2017 at 5:55 pm Most Asians are Chinese or Indians. Most of Asia is “Siberia and China” (actually Russia that is not European Russia – true Siberia is a minority of it – and lands ruled by the CCP – China, Manchuria, Sinkiang and Tibet). john77 May 18, 2017 at 6:00 pm @ Tim “Hero” is the wrong word for Nick Griffin, who is basically a thug. “Leading man” would be acceptable. Social Justice Warrior May 18, 2017 at 6:07 pm If Griffin had cared about stopping the crimes the one thing he would not have done is use them as propaganda for his vile party. If you need a hero, try Andrew Norfolk or Nazir Afzal. Pcar May 18, 2017 at 7:45 pm @Boggo, May 18, 2017 at 3:12 pm “Asians is a more generic term used in places other than the U.K.” Maybe, but it’s nothing like that in Australia. There ‘Asian’ means Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese or Korean. I would class them as Orientals. For me Asians are the xxxstans, India etc. @Dave, absolute codswallop Cynic May 18, 2017 at 7:49 pm If Griffin had cared about stopping the crimes the one thing he would not have done is use them as propaganda for his vile party. Griffin’s a socialist. I don’t think he can help it. dcardno May 18, 2017 at 7:49 pm If Griffin had cared about stopping the crimes the one thing he would not have done is use them as propaganda for his vile party. Just like the left didn’t in respect of Jo Cox, I imagine? bloke in spain May 18, 2017 at 8:05 pm S’funny, SJW. What i remember of the period when the the BNP were riding high was the propaganda of various members of the Labour Party trying to connect the BNP with supposed racist attacks, which either hadn’t occurred & were a product of fertile imaginations or for which there was no evidence of any BNP involvement and in most cases any evidence of racial motives. dearieme May 18, 2017 at 8:17 pm You’re not seriously arguing that a thug can’t be a hero? People are more complicated than that. bloke in france May 18, 2017 at 9:10 pm We don’t jail people for what they are. We jail them for what they do. Other countries… I’m glad I don’t live there. This racism bullshit is a cover for accepting a different ethical framework. I do so hope that “ethicist” doesn’t become a catch all piece of abuse used by the left. Probably will soon, if I’m pessimistic. john77 May 18, 2017 at 11:12 pm @ dearieme No, I’m not saying that someone who is a thug *cannot* be a hero when he’s not being a thug – I am saying that Nick Griffin is not a hero. Dave May 19, 2017 at 10:53 am Apparently the commenters here are unaware that Nazi Nick has a predilection for feeling up young boys, and hangs around with convicted child sex offenders. He doesn’t object to the behaviour, he objects to the ‘Muzzy-wuzzies’ doing what should be reserved for him and his friends. It’s plain that you lot aren’t any more concerned than he is with kiddy fiddling, it’s just naked racism being trotted out here. Interested May 19, 2017 at 11:18 am Dave – you’re fucking barmy. Interested May 19, 2017 at 12:01 pm I actually marvel at the likes of Paul SJW too. I don’t like Griffin because he’s a racist socialist, and unlike him we actually do believe that the content of a man’s character is the important thing, but the idea that he is beyond the pale for mentioning the inaction of the authorities in respect of 1400 girls being raped and tortured by racist gangs (imagine the furore if 1400 mostly Pakistani-origin girls were raped by an overwhelming group of white racists?) is quite bizarre. The first target of Paul’s ire ought to be the rapists. The second ought to be the authorities, to whom complaints were made by some of the girls themselves. The third ought to be the parents of some of these girls. The fourth ought to be the State, which has created a system in which women are rewarded for giving birth to multiple children by multiple fathers, none of whom need stick around to raise their daughters Nick fucking Griffin is a long way down the list, and yet there are no SJW marches, or ‘antifa’ demos, against the Rotherham police and social services, are there? Very, very odd, until you remember that socialists and communists and SJWs generally are liars motivated only by self-hatred. Theose 1400 girls are on your conscience, because you helped to create the circumstances in which a 13 year old can report being raped and the police turn her away for fear of being seen as ‘racist’. You, Dave, Ironman and all the other cunts. It’s partly on you. Social Justice Warrior May 19, 2017 at 1:12 pm It’s beyond obvious that the rapists are the evil ones. But Tim’s post wasn’t about that, it was about hailing Griffin as a hero. Tim Worstall May 19, 2017 at 1:35 pm “But Tim’s post wasn’t about that, it was about hailing Griffin as a hero.” No, actually, it wasn’t. You may have noted that I do like my sarcasm. And the one person we’re not going to see in this TV show is Nick Griffin, isn’t it? We wouldn’t even if he had single handedly broken the case, gathered the evidence and provided the crushing blow in the court case. Because he’s not GoodThink, is he? Interested May 19, 2017 at 2:15 pm ‘It’s beyond obvious that the rapists are the evil ones.’ Yes, it is. But what you don’t seem to want to acknowledge is the part in all of this played by the authorities who refused to investigate – when little girls were coming in crying about having been buggered by old men who fed them drugs and throttled them and threatened to kill them if they told – because they were frightened of being accused of ‘racism’, and the part in that culture which is played by you (or if not you, your fellow-travellers on the cuntish left). Hundreds of little girls, Paul. Fucking hundreds. I hope you sleep easy at night worrying your fucking head about an irrelevant nonentity like Griffin, while you cheer into power the wankers who allowed, and allow, this evil to go on. I hope your children never eat the fruit of your work. The children of others have had to. ‘But Tim’s post wasn’t about that, it was about hailing Griffin as a hero.’ You are a liar. On the basis that you are not stupid, that is the only expanation for this statement. Just Checking May 19, 2017 at 2:46 pm @Dave Apparently the commenters here are unaware that Nazi Nick has a predilection for feeling up young boys I am genuinely unaware of that. I’ve done a quick Google search of “nick griffin child abuse conviction” and the only results were about a different bloke who looks nothing like the BNP-er. There’s also no record of this in the Wikipedia entry about him. Social Justice Warrior May 19, 2017 at 2:57 pm The hero is Nick Griffin, right? I don’t know whether he’s in the programme. But I do think it’s appropriate to respond to the question of whether Nick Griffin is a hero by saying that he isn’t. Whatever sarcasm Tim intended. Interested May 19, 2017 at 3:11 pm So what about the culture your side has engendered? Any slight prick of guilt there? Interested May 19, 2017 at 3:12 pm Just Checking – Dave may attend the same parties and have personal knowledge. Social Justice Warrior May 19, 2017 at 3:58 pm My side? I’m on the side of protecting children from rapists. It’s true that there are moral relativists on the left. They’re wrong. Just Checking May 19, 2017 at 4:18 pm I’m on the side of protecting children from rapists. How? Just Checking May 19, 2017 at 4:19 pm In a practical, non-virtue-signalling sense, I mean. How?
