 ‘Independent’ reporter Jerome Taylor relives his bloody experience on the trail of voting fraud in east London

Tuesday 04 May 2010
When I look back on it now what surprises me is how disarmingly polite my attackers were.

“What are you doing?” asked one of the two, seemingly inquisitive, Asian teenagers who approached me on a quiet cul-de-sac in Bow, east London, shortly after 1pm yesterday.

“There’s been a photographer around here, do you know her?” he added.

I didn’t, but I explained I was a journalist for The Independent looking to speak to a man at an address in the area, who was standing as a candidate in the local elections, about allegations of postal vote fraud. “Can we see your note pad,” the boy asked.

I declined and then the first punch came – landing straight on my nose, sending blood and tears streaming down my face. Then another. Then another.

    That is easy. you refused a superior.
    In their mind you are nothing. you are just in their way.

  2. The Independent?
    Even while being assaulted by Muslims he can’t bring himself to admit they are Muslims, and why they are assaulting him. He has to use the much overused “Asians”, he might be right they might have been Hindu extremists, or Sikhs in disguise.
    Or maybe even Jews looking to discredit the “religion of peace” again.
    As he’s from a socialist paper, I’d say he got what he deserves. I love it when a big theory meets harsh reality.
    The Dissonance is palpable, almost visible in the air, like the rotten stench of a society in decay.

  3. I live in Tower Hamlets and it’s actually a good thing for the leftards to have a firsthand knowledge of their damage. Nothing a good latte and a bit of cognitive dissodence can’t cure except for the bent nose. And yes, I have realised I may be a racist in your world view…. I don’t care, I still fight back and my proboscis is fine…
