Well, it's all a bit six of one isn't it?

It's just a very abnormal case, not really comparible to "ordinary" knife enabled violence.

Still, when I was a helmet the Tamil community had a signficant problem on a ground I worked. Up to the level that certain of their lads cars in convoy always had one designated to carry the knives and swords.
Was a time when there was two rival gangs of Tamils at war with each other in E. London . One bloke very local to me (next road) was dragged out his house in the middle of the night , had his hand chopped off with a sword and then shot . Couple of weeks later another was found still alive but with his head bashed in sitting in a local river , died a few days later . Was a few court cases and all went quiet .

Point of order I only stole the start.

After that I had as much say in the thread's direction as you do now.
But aren't you also Chocolate_frog, Incubus_Imperator and Tired_Tech as well ?

Bit of an odd one.
According to the local paper both perps and victims were Sikhs but relatively recent arrivals from the Punjab with little or no English. The alley it took place in was frequented by street drinkers and junkies and a local shopkeeper was quoted as saying he had moved on the victims from outside his shop on many occasions.
How are they allowed to live in the UK as relatively recent arrivals with little to no English? I dont assume they are persecuted and in need of asylum are they?

You cant get into Australia easily as an Electrical Engineer without a sponsor (job guarantee) and yet the UK allows in non English speaking hopeless junkies?

What a strange country it has become.

We had a lot of problems with them in Wembley a few years ago. The area is mainly Gujarati who are quite chilled and peacefull. There was a sizeable Tamil community. I always thought Tamils were quite peacefull but I discovered they had a dark side. It was as you say rival gangs of Tamils cutting each other up with Samurai swords. Another party piece was capturing a rival gang member, stripping him naked, dousing him with petrol and setting light to it. It wasn't even November 5th. They obviously brought some dark customs with them inherited from the Tamil Tigers.

Most of the garage cashiers all over London seem to be Tamils and I remember that there were a few big fraud cases where they had been scamming cards and the money was being sent to the Tamil Tigers. I always pay with cash now.

One of our female civilian police staff members was a Tamil from Sri Lanka. She used to sit on the Home Office Immigration panels for Sri Lankan Tamils seeking asylum. She said that I large number of them were from Tamil Nadu on the Indian mainland just across the straight from Northern Sri Lanka trying to pass themselves off as Sri Lankan Tamills

How many of our future rappers and football celebrities - cultural assets - must die before we vote Labour into government? How many must die because our current far-right government denies them social justice?

I remember patrolling with a young probationer from the Sikh community. He delighted in telling me about how Gandi had slept naked with young underage teenage girls. I thought it was L.O.B. until a while later the Mail did a big centre spread about it - if it was in the mail it must be true,

He was impressed with my Knowledge of the Anglo Sikh war in the 1840s where the Kalsa although a formidable army trained by German officers had been defeated by the British Gora Sahibs. Mainly because they were betrayed by their own leadership.

My knowledge was gained by first hand accounts from that great victorian hero - General Sir Harry Pagent Flashman VC in Flashman and the Mountain of Light, co authored by George McDonald Fraser.

He got upset though when I told him that in the partion of India in 1947, British accounts relate that the Sikhs were the cruelist in the inter community rapes and killings.

Thought it best not to mention that a large number of Sikh troops captured in Malaya and Singapore had subsequently deserted to the Indian National Army.

I have to admit though that out of all the women on the Indian sub continent, Siikh women are by far the fitest.

Because they have to run away from the cruelest rapists and killers ?

Yes - the button on the card reader that said ‘Would you like to donate 20p to charity?’ before proceeding to payment. It was a Tamil Tiger thing. Doesn’t happen now they’ve been beaten.

I notice that a couple of garages near me still have the option (if ever you use the garage next to the Reigate Manor Hotel on the way up to the M25...) but the cashiers now automatically bypass it for you.

That was a rather unqiue matter.

As reported, it was dealt with by the Met's Counter-Terrorism Command; not Murder Sqd.

About 30 yrs ago I knew someone in the Met who was Counter Terrorism and the then Indian PM was visiting, seems the biggest threat was the Heathrow baggage handlers, they were all Sikhs.

Not many English speakers amongst the airside security staff either . Which I found a tad worrying .

Socialism and social engineering for you.

I bet benefits were available for them within hours of their arrival here. Translation courtesy of the taxpayer.

There is a reason Southall has all those two storey “sheds” at the bottom of the gardens!!

Try delivering any programme at Heathrow with having a number foisted on you.

Working airside at Heathrow for a very short while I was surprised by the amount of Heathrow security staff who entered the staff car park during the night , got into their cars and settled down to sleep for the night . Perhaps they had finished their shift and had no home to go too but I expect they were the night shift and just wanted to be nice and refreshed for the day shifts as Uber drivers .
