This concerns the tragic loss of the life of the boy Ajmol Alom on Monday this week in Poplar in Tower Hamlets.
The news is shocking when a promising lifer is robbed whatever part of the population or whatever the culture or ethnicity.

07-08-2013 17:40Despite all violence, lies and hypocrisy, Egypt has not ceased bleeding since the military coup that killed its avantgarde role in the revolution a month ago. The wound has been inflicted externally out of a malignant observer role and targeted against the process of constitutional rebuilding rather than against the geopolitical assets of the country, as an internal power rivalry would suggest. Objectively it has changed things from bad to worse – while the deposed president is not missed because he had given way too much power to the military, the latter now having grabbed all of the former´s powers is an entirely new level of misery, the opposite of a qualitative improvement. This run-up has proven that the role of a military in a revolution is that of the proverbial nose of the camel in the tent. If it is not pushed out with all appropriate determination, soon the entire thing will try to squeeze itself in, with predictable results. But only in this aspect the Egyptian military can be compared to a local animal, because it is just as externally manipulated as it is externally paid. What occurred against Egypt in the form of this incident is a failure of the international system – the last beacon of human reason has walked out of the discourse surrounding the country, and the consequence is obvious – the disarmament is stalling and people are dying.

The Met Police has "apologised" to Ian Tomlinson's family. But the BBC hasn't!
Yet the BBC ought to do so as well. And sack Chris Eakin. It was Eakin who condemned Tomlinson within minutes of Tomlinson's death at Police hands.
As he read the so-called breaking news about Ian Tomlinson's death, Eakin
went out of his way to make a very detailed statement blaming the demonstrators for
Tomlinson's death and in fact said words to the effect that Tomlinson himself had to blame.
