Sun Anti-Muslim Story Revealed As Lies

Remember that story a few weeks back about how "Muslim louts" had vandalised a house in order to prevent returning squaddies from living there? It was one of a rash of disgracefully bigoted stories pointing an accusing finger at Muslims - and whipping up hatred against immigrants in general.

Anyway, the story turns out to have been something that starts with 'B' and ends with 'ollocks'. As revealed by the local Berkshire press. Indeed, it turns out that that the intimidation may well have been the work of posh oiks who didn't want their house prices to come down.

Stand by for the grovelling apology in The Sun, which originally broke the rubbish 'story'. But hey - don't hold your breath.

I am, yet again, tipping my hat to Ben.
