    Who are the ‘white people’? Jesus was brown. In my sons primary class in Towerbank Portobello only 4 kids had 4 Scottish grandparents. I have Jewish and Irish ancestry. My youngest son has Algerian heritage.

    Scots were welcomed all over the world. Twenty of my friends and family live internationally. I have work colleagues and friends from India&Pakistan, Africa, Far East, America and Europe.

    Yours are the views of a dinosaur who refuses to accept the reality of the world we live in. They are also out of step with the values of a club formed by immigrants.

    It is not ‘they’ who do not belong among us Ryan.

    It is you.
    I only care about what is happening in the UK.

    I have every right to live here,I served my country...did you?

    you seem to have a misapprehension that this country is only for "white people"....I'm delighted to see the UK now full of diversity..makes it richer and more interesting...many ethnic minorities with a deep british heritage too - it's not going to revert back either - How do you like them apples?

    By that logic, you'll be happy for Muslims (or anyone of a non-Christian faith) who have served with the armed forces, or who have served the country in other ways (for example, by paying tax), to live here.

    Easier to pretend its not happening though....

    The important figure in that report is the 42.1% of people in Birmingham who identified themselves as non-white British. The trouble is that people who are colour blind and people who are not colour blind read that sentence in two completely different ways.

    One person sees "42.1 per cent of people in Birmingham classified themselves as non-white British in the 2011 census".

    Another person sees "42.1 per cent of people in Birmingham classified themselves as non-white British in the 2011 census"

    Sorry, I'm having a thick moment here. What's the difference?

    Do you mean non-[white British] as opposed to [non-white] British?

    I didn't see the former meaning without looking at it very hard. I'm sure it's meant to be the latter.

    This 42.1% of people: Do you want to feel pleased that they see themselves as British or do you want to feel humpty that they are - or see themselves as - non-white?

    Doesn't trip off the tongue quite so well. Plus being British means they're part of the Union, Jack.

    My guess would be so long as they're not brown, they're ok.

    While the mainstream media ignore trials like this, and seem frightened to report news like this. The Tommy Robinson supporters will point this out, and continue to ask why?

    It gives them more ammunition, and the bigots lap it up.

    Was covered from many angles as I recall.... do some searches on BBC and other media sites - I’m sure the coverage will be there

    I couldn't say. I rarely watch the TV news these days, and get my fix online.

    The problem with TV news is that they have to prioritise things to fit into a half-hour or hour programme. Some things which, on another day, would be headlines, will get bumped partially or completely if there is a "bigegr" story. Without revisiting the news stories of that time, it's hard to say whether that was the case here.

    Aye, but other than being exposed and reported on almost all main stream sites? Where was it reported? Did the BBC come to my door and tell me? No. Why? Because the media is afraid to look islamaphobic.

    A lot of people still rely on the tea time news for their updates on what's happened.

    How many people don't have the Internet? The same people who watch Tommy Robinson videos online can't access Google? Or the BBC?

    That seems... Odd.

    Also, the BBC can't report on every criminal case at 6 o clock. How long would the news last?
