Tory blogger defends Western values

“I bloody knew it! I had a feeling that this story didn’t quite ring true and – surprise, surprise – we learn today that Noor Ramjanally lied when he said that he had been abducted by two men, was bundled into a car boot, driven to Epping Forest and ordered to stop his religious work.

“These self-styled, unelected community leaders only continue to wield the power that they do by perpetuating stereotypes in their communities. For them no level of division is too great if it advances their politically correct, anti-integrationist victimological agenda. We saw it in the US (with tales highlighted by Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter proving that supposed racist attacks on jihadists at Gitmo (the Koran down the lavatory lie) and on campuses are routinely faked by leftists with warped political agendas to advance). Now we see it here.”

Donal Blaney offers a characteristically reasoned response to the arrest of Noor Ramjanally.

Blaney’s Blarney, 4 September 2009

You might have thought that the “Western values” Blaney is so enthusiastic about defending (at the cost of other people’s lives rather than his own, of course) would include the principle of being presumed innocent until proven guilty, but apparently not. But then, what can you expect from a man who declares his admiration for right-wing fruitcakes like Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter?

Update:  Blaney replies: “He owned up and admitted his guilt, dumbass!”

What a charming man. But the Daily Mail article to which Blaney links doesn’t state that Noor Ramjanally has admitted his guilt, nor does any other report that I’ve read. So how could “we learn today that Noor Ramjanally lied”? The most we know is that he has now been charged with perverting the course of justice.
