Does anyone else think that an official from the British government should not be trying to force a witness to pass judgement on video he has never seen and is totally unaware of? Is this what democracy has devolved into?

Simon Platt left this critical information in the comments:
Some minor points of correction: this isn’t Her Majesty’s Government, but the Home Affairs Select Committee. That’s a committee of members of parliament, not government ministers, whose principal role is to hold the Home Office (a government department) to account.
The Pakistani bully was Rehman Chishti, who, believe it or not, is not just any old “Conservative” MP but a Vice Chairman of the “Conservative” Party.
In respect of that, it might interest readers to know that an article written by Boris Johnson, favourite to succeed Theresa May as Conservative leader and Prime Minister, an article that appeared yesterday in a Conservative-supporting newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, has led to demands for an apology from the Islamophobic Conservative Party Chairman, Brandon Lewis. Johnson’s crime: he wrote that he thought Denmark had gone too far with its recent “burka ban”, and that the UK shouldn’t follow suit, much as Johnson disliked the niqab (common on our streets) and burka (almost never seen). If I remember correctly, the offending word Johnson used was “weird”.
The other point of correction I wanted to make has already been made but is worth repeating: it wasn’t Tommy Robinson who “radicalised” Darren Osbourne. It was the BBC.
Thank you Simon.
Darren Osbourne stated at his trial that the BBC miniseries 3 Girls about Muslim rape gangs in Rochdale was what made him attack.
It did the same for many of us, we just haven’t reached his stage yet.
Travelling to work on the Tube on 7/7 with my wife thinking I was dead for an hour did the same for me,even though I didn’t even hear a bomb explode.
Daniel Hannah made the point recently that we English are quiet snorkelling for a very long time until suddenly we flip into a cold determination to do something. The best example is our passivity towards Germany in the 30s followed by our change in 1939 when we declared war.
Thank you DJ.
Does anyone know if 3 Girls is still available online? If not, I would attempt to put it on Bitchutte if there is an interest in seeing it.
