I bet the BBC (singular)
were *was delighted to report that a bunch of teenage Israeli tourists had been arrested in Cyprus for the rape of a 19-year-old British woman. Something to counter-balance the UK’s grooming-gang debacle perhaps?
As well as initially getting their ages muddled (one of the accused was 20 so not a teenager) the incident didn’t turn out to be quite the story
they *it (singular) had hoped for.
(* Oh, Jacob Rees-Mogg M.P., Esq., this is getting weird.)
Of course, this may not be the end of the tale. Some Israelis, perhaps protective of their country’s image, are angry with the boys for taking advantage of this girl and, to make matters worse, filming whatever it was that happened.
If the girl made up the accusation to cover her humiliation, that was a bad choice; worse than involving herself in the first place.
I’m not gloating over the BBC’s loss of a good story, though. It might not turn out well for anyone.
To cheer yourself up, read about the terrible dilemma thrown up by the shocking incident of the niqab-clad homophobe and the gay. “The clip has caused much discomfort in woke-left circles.”
Brendan O’Neill is on top form. Much discomfort all round.Disgusting homophobic abuse at those on Waltham Forest Pride today.— Yusuf Patel (@YusufJP_) July 27, 2019
No matter what form hate comes in, we must stamp it out and say no to all forms of hate! Also, very importantly we cannot call out one form of hate but be silent/complicit on others. @GalopUK @stonewalluk pic.twitter.com/kDAFoAb8Vw
