    Now seems that race played little role in this attack whatsoever.

    The media will drop it like a hot potato as the truth emerges.

    No doubt. But the race of the attackers isn't insignificant, not that that will ever be made an issue of.

    Asylum Seeker?

    In Ireland asylum seekers are given free legal aid because they have no means, I presume its similar in the UK.

    If this lad has a few thousand pounds in the bank then surely he wouldn't be able to claim legal aid as his means are over the threshold?

    Well, it seems the attackers were both black and English white.
    The victim seems of be Persian origin which is of the Caucasian race.

    If they were all white it would be a massive story, we'd never hear the end of it. I admit that I initially assumed that was the case. But seeing as they seem to be mostly black(?) it's not considered newsworthy.

    If they are mostly black the story will be gone tomorrow.

    Asylum seeker attacked in Croydon 'thought he would die'

    Reker Ahmed suffered a bleed on his brain, a fractured eye socket and fractured spine

    The asylum seeker who was attacked in south London has told Kurdish campaigners he "thought he was going to die".

    Kurdish MP Faysal Sariyiliz, who visited Reker Ahmed in hospital, said the 17-year-old was "very pleased to be alive" after the assault

    People who want to make political capital out if it dont care about facts. Did you see Diane Abott on Question Time last night making capital about the Asylum seeker that was killed in Croydon?
    She was mixing up the attack on the Asylum seeker who is definitely still alive with the guy attacked in Croydon last Wednesday by two Black men who died in hospital on Sunday.

    No one pointed out the fact she was talking bo**ox as you would expect from the propaganda rubbish you get on the BBC as a matter of routine.

    I understand.
    We all have our limit.
    Diane Abott can easily push any mere mortal past his/her breaking point.
    Best switch channel if you think there is a chance that she is about to make you crack.

    Thank God that was only 2:34 mins. Another ten seconds and I would have punched my computer screen.

    Another arrest yesterday for the murder of a Romainian in London a few months ago.

    But this crime wont ever appear in the "hate crime" statistics. "Hope not Hate" wont feel any need to highlight the racial tensions that this particular crime represents. Diane Abott didnt feel any need to tweet her concerns about this particular crime. Oli Rehn wont be along to signal his virtues to all and sundry.

    It's doubtful he's using his real identity. Denmark changed the rules so that asylum seekers could have cash, jewellery and valuables seized to pay for their care and the numbers dropped, they also increased the waiting time for reunification from 1 year to 3 years. They've had fewer applications since the new legislation was introduced.
