Gee, I would call these three ”supporters of the U.K.”, wouldn’t you?
BBC JUMPS TO DEFEND MAN WITH ISIS FLAG, AND FECKLESS POLICE WHO FAILED TO ARREST HIM
The BBC has waded into the row over a man carrying an Islamic State flag outside Big Ben, in a broadly uninformative article which seeks to excuse the man carrying the flag of ISIS on London’s streets.
The article entitled “Why this man wrapped in an ‘Islamic State’ flag was not arrested in central London” says:
The man wasn’t arrested. Here’s why.
Wearing, carrying or displaying an emblem or flag – even an IS flag – isn’t, by itself, an offence.
Police say the flag would need to be used in a way which meant a person was suspected of being a supporter or member of a banned group, such as IS.
But if wearing an ISIS flag doesn’t show support for the terrorist organisation, what does? Would the man, for instance, have to start gunning people down in the street while screaming “Allah hu Akbar” before the BBC felt anything should be done?
