Clean Skin

A great but unheralded triumph in the war on terror has just come to our attention. Strangely enough, this does not seem to have made much of a splash. A triumph of normal, everyday policing, it demonstrates our guardians' comforting efficiency.

The low profile of the Martyn Gilleard case is not it's only unusual aspect:
Actual explosives found!
Gun powder, fuses, 4 nail bombs hidden under his son's bed (Social Services and The Health and Safety Executive will be over him like a ton of bricks for that). Not some fucking bag of fertiliser or bottle of Tang!
Actual weapons found!
Live bullets, swords, axes, knives and a bayonet
No prolonged (and painstaking,hazardous etc etc) surveillance!
The local plod were investigating his enthusiasm for child pornography (39,000 images apparently)
No dramatic TV friendly demonstrations of what he could have done with his arsenal!
Of course, our colour televisioneers could have dragged their arses down to the news library and shown what fellow BNP psychopath David John Copeland did with similar materials in Soho back in 1999.
No use of the words: chilling, shocking, unimaginable and carnage!
Again, admirable restraint from our newshounds. Perhaps they're saving them up for the various now you see them, now you don't, terror trials currently ongoing.
No penetrating analysis from free-wheeling Frankie Gardner!
Just our luck he was stuck in the garage all day.
No undercover operatives!
Obviously one of those clean skinheads to our Secret Services. Ranting about blowing up mosques on fascist chat rooms is just normal english eccentricity. It's not like we're living in some kind of police state where they listen to everyone's every word.
Brought swiftly to trial and conviction!
Arrested in Dundee November 2007, banged up June 2008. Amazing what you can do with some actual evidence.
Surprisingly light sentence!
11 years in one of her majesty's cushy holiday camps. This is probably because the judge considered him a 'lone wolf', despite the British People's Party saying "We will give him our full support whether or not he is convicted of the alleged charges" and describing him as "a loyal and trusted comrade". Pretty light compared to Dhiren Barot's 40 years to life for scribbling moronic, unworkable plans in a notebook.

All in all, the modesty of our protectors and informers surrounding this case, is a mystery beyond understanding.

Bloody typical

You spend two weeks waiting for some quality Loonpostery and then three come all at once...

Triumph? They don't make those any more.

At least they're not bendy loonposters!

We've probably got Boris BJ Johnson to thank for that.
