The irresponsibility in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist is both negligent and dangerous. ITV have done this by putting young Hindu adolescents in harm’s way. The idea that a TV channel would inflame any part of the world, particularly Britain, for selling TV viewers should be criminal offence – wait, it is – incitement to hatred.

Time the World Woke Up

As the world woke up on Wednesday 9th November, people got a shock of the century.  Or did they?  I accept the shock was real for the establishment both in the US, as well as many western countries.  It was a shock for the paid liberal media that had thrown everything at Trump to destroy him, and they failed.  Yes, it was also a shock for the pollsters who frankly have still not learnt a simple lesson, the world paradigm has changed and therefore their traditional models just don’t work any longer. ...
