No media headlines? Usual suspects totally silent? Why? How come?
Oh that's right. No Muslims involved.
"Robert Cottage, 49, of Talbot Street, Colne, appeared before Burnley magistrates charged with possession of an explosive substance [...] Cottage was charged under the Explosives Substances Act 1883 on Monday night after forensic experts searched his home, allegedly discovering chemical components which could be used to make explosives [...] Police sealed off Cottage's home last Thursday and finished their search at the weekend [...] Officers claim that their find is the largest haul of chemicals of its kind discovered in someone's home in the country [...] However, the exact nature of the chemicals has not been revealed."
Add to that this story is two days old.
Update 9/10: At the end of last week, several blogs also picked up on this story. Ministry of Truth (1, 2) reminds us of a very good point. The men were charged, not under more recent legislation against terrorism, but under the Explosive Substances Act 1883. We can only speculate at this point as to why. Blood and Treasure, Wis[s]e Words, Pickled Politics, Al-Muhajabah and Anarcho Akbar have their own comments. I've seen a couple of silly comments explaining that 'they're innocent until proven guilt'. Of course, you idiots! That's the whole point being raised by these blogs; that the same principle is not extended when a 'Muslim' is arrested and charged. Instead, we're met with the usual orgy of hate from the Dhummies, murderous fantasists and small-minded bigots; the constant droning from the usual suspects in the media, deliberately or stupidly engaged in conflating and confusing different issues (I'll be kind and say they're stupid); and the usual mud-raking from the sensationlist journalism about people's past and private lives. And all this usually happens before they've even been charged with a crime.
