Oh, those terrorists...
I hate politics. I hate blogs about politics even more.
However, you may have missed the story last Friday about how the police in Pendle foiled a massive terrorist plot. The largest haul ever made of bomb components was made, with seized materials including rocket launchers, chemicals, and a nuclear biological suit.
You may have missed it because it was reported by precisely zero national news outlets. Why was this? Why is the charging of terrorists being overlooked, precisely when we need to know most about them?
Maybe it's because they're not Muslims. Unfortunately, these were just BNP terrorists (one of whom stood for the local Council in the May elections). As we all know, white terrorists aren't news. They are disgruntled citizens who were a little overzealous.
Am I being too cynical?
Make your own mind up here.

For those I haven't pestered into hatred already, my play 'My Lighthouse' will be on Radio 2 on Thursday night (12th October). You can listen to it online, or through your radiogram set. It will be broadcast as part of Mark Radcliffe's programme between 10:30 and midnight.
Prime time, baby!
More information here.
