The Van Was White....

And that's as much info as the MSM is prepared to let us know about events in Cardiff. Other than that, we need to go to Standard Operating Procedure for Men of No Appearance related events, and start reading between the lines... like the BBC's reference to 'community leaders'... no doubt a reference to the Church of Christ the Delivery Guy. On the plus side, the BBC does reassure us that:
Supt Julian Williams, of South Wales Police, said: "This is a tragic incident that has affected a large number of people, and we thank the people of Cardiff for their help and support. "Incidents like this are extremely rare here, as they are across south Wales, and we want to reassure the public that a significant number of officers are working on the investigation, including a number of specialist resources."
Hey, what kind of specialist resources, Jules?


Guess we'll never know. At least it's just a series of hit and runs... despite what those nutters in the VRWC will try and convince you.
In one attack a couple pushing a pram were targeted and the baby was tossed into the air by the impact, landing several feet away. In another, the driver got out of the vehicle to club two men with a steering wheel lock at a petrol station forecourt before getting back into the van and driving off, running over two women over as he sped away.
Then again, that is from notorious right-wing rag, the Independent, so who knows? It's not like you can get a good look at a guy while he's beating two blokes senseless on a station forecourt. If only there was some way of recording what happened then playing it back at a later date...

Usual disclaimer follows: it could just a guy called David Jones, driven mad by the lousy weather, but after decades of brutal violence by members of the Men of No Appearance gang, I think we're entitled to be a little sceptical about reports of violence by 'men' (and that goes double where the MSM is trying to convince us that attacking guys with steering locks counts as a 'hit and run'). Either way, next time the MSM warns us about the threat to a free press from naughty old Brian Levenson, bear these reports in mind for an example of how the press deals with contentious issues right now.

I was surprised, waking up this morning, to find that there was no name given for the suspect.

And also rather surprised that it got barely a mention on last night's news.

The 'no name' in the media made me curious as well. I know Cardiff has a bearded savage problem and there has been incidents of Islamic extremists stirring the pot there.

Yes the 'no name' or description line is extremely suspect.

Unless they are planning on reintroducing Diplock Courts his identity will have to come out sometime.

I assume that as every train to South Wales has not been block booked by the BBC and Guardian there is no baby seal angle here.

Apparently it's a Matthew Tvrdon who is up on charges. Presumably "Tvrdon" is a native Welsh surname (attached to a native Welshman).

For once, then, it seems that a MONA is not a "man of dusky appearance" who is given to prostrating himself towards Mecca 5 times a day.

Even so, the result of tiptoeing around ethnicity together with a ridiculous over-sensitivity concerning crimes in or by the "community" (the non-white and/or Moslem one) by the BBC and the rest of the MSM is both and predictable and counter-productive.

Instead of readers/viewers/listeners assuming the BBC/MSM "correct" outcome (ie that all crims are indigenous racist whites) the current default assumption concerning any alleged, anonymous miscreant is that s/he is non-white and/or Moslem.

Tverdon is a Slovak surname

"Tverdon is a Slovak surname"

Blimey - who knew? I certainly didn't. It could be then - on the basis that the old Yugoslavia had its fair share of Moslems - that the suspicions of cover-up by anonymisation on the part of the BBC/MSM could be justified.

There's a Slovak hockey player who plays for Vancouver Giants.

DJs observations about MONAs and the MSM still stand. I was fully expecting the accused to be called Mohammed/Ahmed/*enter bearded savage name here*.
