How Muslims are smeared as ‘entryists’ in newspapers without reason — 8:17 pm - March 15th 2015 There is no other minority group in the UK like Muslims that you can make crass and bigoted generalisations about, and get away with it. Perhaps Roma people, but they are rarely written about as much. Not even Poles get the treatment like they used to.

Why Amnesty (or any other proper human rights org) couldn’t work with CAGE again — 3:40 pm - March 12th 2015 Amnesty International UK say they no longer consider it appropriate to share a platform with CAGE after their recent comments.
