Liddle Briton

Shocked by the canal death plot, Rod Liddle has blogged to say ‘the overwhelming majority of street crime, knife crime, gun crime, robbery and crimes of sexual violence in London is carried out by young men from the African-Caribbean community’, before ignoring in his verbal stunt any analysis of class and economics (or indeed statistical analysis) to defend his rant on the grounds of multicultural difference.

'Of course, in return, we have rap music, goat curry and a far more vibrant and diverse understanding of cultures which were once alien to us. For which, many thanks … The issue here is not racism, it is one of multiculturalism.'

We should be aware of the terms in which he is trying to have the debate, positing himself as the ‘we’ of the host, the givers of opportunities in keeping with how the tory readership still thinks, with the African-Caribbean community very much as a second class outside ‘you’.

Bonnie Greer is fantastic in pandering to Liddle’s offensive terms of cultural exchange: 'The overwhelming majority of paedophiles, murderers, war-mongers and football hooligans are white males and all we got in return was beans on toast and Top Gear.'

As usual, anyone this close to inciting racial hatred lives far from where poisonous comments such as these might be read and he should not be taken seriously, but this is nevertheless a vile piece of posturing that clouds the wider point of the egregious elements of liberal multiculturalism Liddle wants to make.

And Rod 'the lad' Liddle has form for this snide racism dressed up as a discussion of multi culturalism. He even puts it in the title of his blog (Rod 'Seacole' Liddle) which recalls his pathetic attempts to increase his/the Spectator's subscribers by slagging off the reference to Mary Seacole in history lessons at his sons' (poor sods) school. What a freedom fighter. What a rebel. A friend worked on the Today programme when Fiddle was editor (glory days) - she observed that all he was interested in was getting his leg over with the newest and most attractive woman (not man - he is not gay. He is not gay. I'll repeat that in the turd person style that the man himself will eventually use: Rod Liddle is certainly not gay.).

No doubt she was just jealous because Rod is all man - 100% freedom loving helmet.
