The coverage from the BBC is fairly limited. Some newspapers, from both left and right, are running with the refugee connection but the BBC is suppressing it. Sky is reporting it.

The location of the latest investigation in Stanwell is fairly close to Sunbury. Both areas are relatively poor with a significant immigrant population. Presumably that is why the council housed the refugees there"

Maybe. It was obvious that events like this would come through with time. The hate for the West is too wide and deep in the Muslim world. However, there is a strain in British society which is eternally optimistic and loving. Though it puts us all at risk, I can't help but admire it too.

The problem for the BBC is that they have stretched their neutral remit to the max to push for migrants, and child migrants in particular, to be allowed entry in big numbers. They essentially used a moral argument backed up with much selective footage in Calais. It does now look like the moral argument will be hard to push going forwards. I have been continually surprised by what suckers we have proved though, so maybe it will carry on.

If she drags her feet like she's been doing and doesn't get us out of the EU quick she'll suffer at the next General Election and Labour will be running the country under Jeremy Corbyn, that oddball bloke who says he'd keep our Trident subs, but send them to sea without any nuke missiles aboard!

Right, we're used to it, first Kaiser Bill used to send his zeppelins over to drop bombs on us, then Adolf tried it ("the target marker flares looked quite pretty floating slowly down in the night sky" my mother told me about the time the Luftwaffe did a night raid on her home city of Leicester in 1940 when she was 18; she and her family survived but others didn't).
Then the IRA had a go at us with a wave of bombings; "What the bleddy hell was that?" my mother asked when an IRA bomb 3 miles away rattled our windows in Leicester in 1990, but miraculously nobody was hurt.
"Dunno" I said, and went back to playing a computer game, and she went back to watching a quiz on TV without batting an eye.
The blast also woke up our cat, but it just yawned and went back to sleep..

The suspected terrorist arrested in Dover was an Iraqi not Syrian refugee.

Our most recent ISIS terror cell didn't have the risky hassle of trying to cook up acetone peroxide they got their explosive sent to them via airfreight from an ISIS supporter in Turkey.

Food for thought...
Probably only around 1 percent of muslim immigrants have got extremist tendencies.
Obama was letting in 100,000 immigrants a year, so if only 1 percent of them were extremists, that's only 1000 extremists a year setting foot on American soil, nothing to worry about..


------------------------------------------------


And this is one of the muslim "refugee" columns entering borderless Europe, so if the column is say 500 strong and 1 percent are extremists, there are 5 potential murderers in this column alone-

Yea, but unlike any European country, we still have more firearms in private hands that aren't Muslim than that...

Having 8 or 10 non-Muslim kids would be more effective than a house full of guns. Battle of the babies eventually gets you if you dont breed up, ask the Serbs of Kosovo, whats left of them. Burmese of Rakhine seem to have learned the lesson, let's see if Uncle Sam lets them get away with it.

That's how the bastards will conquer Blighty in the end. Thirty six years ago, at the age of twenty one, my wife went into hospital to have our first child. In the next bed was an Asian lass that had been in her class at Skool... she was having her third baby. Since then we've had one more kid... wonder how many the Asian broodmare (and her offspring) have added to the tribe in the last thirty odd years?

You also have more privately armed Muslims.

As the type an lethality of attacks over there show.

They can't breed more then the Catholics did and we contained them in the end too.

If the plastic in the water doesn't get them, socialized birth control will
