4. TRUTH ABOUT ASIAN SEX GANGS

Comment is free is no stranger to illogical arguments. But this article, on the Rochdale sex gang story, contradicts itself so many times that it leaves one with twisted blood.

First of all the authors tell us “racial profiling won’t help potential [rape] victims” because, in large part, these crimes are committed by “a racial profile that is yet to be established clearly” and “there is still no reliable estimate of the number of ‘on-street groomers’ nationwide, let alone of their ethnicity.”

Hmm, Okay.

But then, we’re told, borrowing data from “the closest [study] we have to a national estimate”, that 49 percent of “localised groomers” were white and 46 percent Asian before it is, understandably, asserted that “in a country where Asians constitute 7% of the general population, this is a striking figure.”

Confused? Don’t be; the driving logic behind the argument doesn’t remain concealed for long…

“Racial profiles are notoriously problematic. Their application raises serious ethical issues and risks isolating the non-deviant majority.”

Ah, so they’re being politically correct? Got it.

5. PC PC BANS THE USE OF "BLACK" AND '"WHITE"

On the subject of political correctness, the Old Bill have filled their quota this week too. Brace yourself for this...the Met Police has banned their IT staff from using the words "blacklist" and "whitelist"

...

...

Apologies for the interlude -- I was busy weeping for humanity.

DEVELOPMENT:

I have it from a trustworthy source that, following this news, Whitehall is now sweating over the political correctness of its own traditional metonym.

"A hall of people who, statistically, had a more privileged start to life than others, but are not necessarily white" is being touted as a replacement.
