With the fervour of committed propagandists, the British ruling class seized on the recent attack on a Kurdish asylum seeker. Brexit, Racism and Whitey were blamed.
The shadow home secretary, Diane Abbott, also condemned the attack, and suggested the Conservatives had failed to get to grips with hate crime. “Sadly, this is not an isolated incident, but part of a sustained increase in hate crimes that this Tory government is yet to offer any effective response to,” she said.
“With rightwing politicians across the world scapegoating migrants, refugees and others for their economic problems, we are seeing a deeply worrying rise in the politics of hate. We must make clear that there is no place for anti-foreigner myths, racism and hate in our society.”Source
But the story quickly imploded when it became clear that the perps were brown-skinned invaders themselves.
Detectives investigating a suspected hate crime that left a teenage asylum seeker with a fractured skull and blood clot on the brain have released the images of three people wanted in connection with the “brutal attack”.Source
In the Diane Abbott video, there were many strange noises in the background. That was the sound of a Narrative collapsing.
